New Clinton Ad Addresses Obama's "Bitter" Comments

The Clinton campaign today released an ad hitting Barack Obama over comments he made about small town voters who "get bitter [and] cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

In the new 30-second spot, "Pennsylvania," an announcer references Obama's comments. A woman says, "I was very insulted by Barack Obama." A man then calls him "out of touch."

Then another woman says, "I'm not clinging to my faith out of frustration and bitterness. I find that my faith is very uplifting." A second man follows with this comment: "The good people of Pennsylvania deserve a lot better than what Barack Obama said."

The last two comments paint Clinton in a positive light – one woman says "Hillary does understand the citizens of Pennsylvania better," and another says "Hillary Clinton has been fighting for people like us her whole life." Watch it:
