President Barack Obama’s admission that he “can’t change Washington from the inside” is being used to attack him in a powerful new ad aimed at the youth vote.
Mitt Romney’s campaign produced the ad showing several young voters who say they have become disillusioned with the president since voting for him in 2008.
The 90- second ad — entitled “No, I Can’t” — features a mix of a Univision interview in which Obama made his admission, with twentysomethings saying they voted for hope four years ago.
“But what I got was a bleak future that has forced me to move back in with my parents,” says one young woman, identified as Stepanie.
“What we need is someone who can point a way forward — and not at each other,” says a man, while a young woman says, “What we need is a jobs plan, not more slogans.”
The ad was released the day after former President Bill Clinton said that Obama is in danger of losing the vote of under-30s.
“They are disproportionately likely now to be unemployed or stuck in part-time jobs, to be frustrated,” Clinton told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria.
“I think for all kinds of reasons, they’re unlikely to vote in large numbers for Governor Romney, but will they vote?” Clinton asked.
