WASHINGTON (AP) — A top White House adviser is laying out the theme of President Barack Obama's re-election campaign, saying the Republicans running for president would "take dead aim" at middle class Americans.

Obama's 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe (pluhf), says GOP candidates share the goal of loosening restrictions on Wall Street bankers and giving more tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans. He says all of the benefits going to the rich would be paid for by seniors and the middle class.

Speaking Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," Plouffe said the election will offer voters a "profound choice."

The race, he says, will be "a tough, close election" that Obama will narrowly win.

Plouffe says Obama will defend his record on health care and avoiding a depression.
