The Obama campaign finally has a plan for a possible second term, and it’s out in booklet form. Obama’s vision for the next four years includes building roads and bridges, higher taxes on the rich, more investment in “clean energy,” hiring more teachers and cutting the deficit. This stuff sounds awfully familiar:

Obama then describes his plan: “Making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting American-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. And ending the war in Afghanistan, so we can do some nation-building here at home. That’s the right path.”

What’s “new” about this plan? It’s in a glossy booklet!

The “plan” was unveiled in a new Obama ad that Politico compared to Ronald Reagan’s “Morning in America” ad:

For comparison, here’s Reagan’s 1984 ad:

It’s important to remember that when the Reagan campaign released “Morning in America,” it resonated better than Obama’s will, to some degree because The Gipper’s vice president wasn’t out at the same time saying stuff like this:

That’s more like “Mourning in America.”
