"When you grow up and life's a struggle, you have a whole different understanding of what most people are going through." That's how former Republican governor Mike Huckabee's new ad, "Understanding," begins. The spot hit the airwaves in economically-troubled Michigan earlier today, with just six days to go until the state primary.
Huckabee laments: "We're losing manufacturing jobs [a "For Sale" sign appears on the screen], home owners face a credit crisis, high fuel costs are spiraling and families are hurting." He says that if elected president, he'd cut taxes, build highways, reform health care and education and encourage "record job growth." In an appeal to parents watching, a school bus filled with children slides across the screen and at another point, Huckabee cradles a baby.
"I believe most Americans want their next president to remind them of the guy they work with, not the guy who layed them off," he says.
