IN CONTEXT AND IN VIDEO…. The DNC’s Organizing for America put together a pretty darned good video, putting the recession’s unemployment numbers and the stimulus package in a helpful context.
As far as I can tell, the 90-second clip isn’t going to be a televised commercial — it’s triple the usual length for a TV spot — but it’s the kind of thing Democrats hope can and will be spread around.
Notice the font and music, too — it’s very reminiscent of 2008. What’s more, the video is a reminder that Dems still believe rescuing the economy can be a key part of the 2010 elections. David Plouffe recently encouraged Democrats to remember: “Make sure voters understand what the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act did for the economy.”
This will take more, obviously, than a video and a p.r. push on the one-year anniversary of the stimulus, but it’s a good start.
