The Obama Campaign is airing its first positive ad of the election cycle.

The 60-second TV commercial, titled ‘Go,’ will be on the air early this week in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The campaign describes it as a “significant buy in targeted markets.” (Via Morning Score)

This is the ad David Axelrod hinted was on its way during his ABC sit-down yesterday morning. Starting with a reminder of how dim things already were when Obama was inaugurated, with 20 seconds clips of clips from 2008 and a cameo by raging tea partiers in 2009, the last 40 seconds evoke an uplifting mix of Ronald Reagan’s “It’s Morning Again in America” ad and Clint Eastwood’s “It’s halftime, America” spot from the Super Bowl. This is the president’s first proactive, paid spot in the battleground states.
