[Music] Male Announcer: Wonder where John McCain would take the economy?

Look behind you.

John McCain wants to continue George Bush's economic policies.

As President he'd provide no tax breaks to 101 million Americans but keep tax breaks for companies that ship our jobs overseas.

He wants $4 billion dollars in new tax breaks for big oil.

And would tax your health care benefits for the first time ever.

Look behind you.

We can't afford more of the same.


Notes: This is one two closing argument 30 second TV ads.  According to the press release, the ad "answers for voters that if they wonder where John McCain will take the economy, they just have to look behind them as he will simply continue George Bush’s failed policies."  The other closing argument ad is "Something."

"Rearview Mirror" is of the more creative Obama ads, featuring a drive with alarmingly malfunctioning mirrors and strange road signs.
