Obama’s familiar tagline

Jeremy Hobson Jan 19, 2012

President Obama has released his first TV ad of the 2012 campaign.

And it ends with this familiar tagline:

President Obama: I’m Barack Obama, and I approve this message.

Sounds kinda like what he said in this ad four years ago:

Obama: I’m Barack Obama, and I approve this message.

In fact… It sounds exactly like what he said four years ago.

I guess he’s a busy guy, but it does make you wonder if he really approved the message.
