New Barack Obama election advertisment

Here’s a transcript of ‘Obama for America’s new TV spot, described by some as his ‘One More Chance’ clip.

Intro of ‘Let’s Stay Together’ plays.

Obama: Baby, I know we’ve been through some hard times. I know things haven’t been good lately, what with you losing your job, having no money for groceries, getting stiffed at the pump. But the question is – do you really want to break up with me? Is that what you really want?

Think of all those good times we had together babe, think of when we passed that health reform bill… Yeah… And think of how we let all those gay people serve in the military… We had good times babe and we can do it again so…

Sings I… I’m so in love with you…

The song gradually fades out, with Obama talking over the outro.

Oh come on honey doll… Gimme one more chance… You really want to go with some rich white dude? Mitt Romney? (Laughs) I’ll get the economy going baby, you just wait and see… 5.4% baby… Don’t walk out on me baby… Vote for me baby… Just one more little vote…

Stay with me baby.

Apparently the campaign is now preparing a spot of Joe Biden singing The Communards’ 1986 hit ‘Don’t leave me this way’, for obvious reasons.
