NBC correspondent Garrett Haake forwards Mitt Romney’s new 60-second ad in Iowa. This is what an establishment frontrunner sounds like:
When generations of immigrants looked up and saw the Statue of Liberty for the first time, one thing they knew beyond any doubt, and that is they were coming to a place where anything was possible; that in America, their children would have a better life.
I believe in that America.
The spirit of enterprise, innovation, pioneering and can-do propelled our standard of living and economy past that of any other nation on earth.
And in the campaign to come, the American ideals of economic freedom and opportunity need a clear and unapologetic defense. And I intend to make it because I have lived it.
We stand for freedom and opportunity and hope.
The principles that made this nation a great and powerful leader of the world have not lost their meaning - they never will.
I’m Mitt Romney, I believe in America, and I’m running for President of the United States.”
The Des Moines Register reports today that Mr. Romney continues drawing overflow crowds.
