Obama Campaign Hires Morgan Freeman To Narrate TV Spot [Video]

If President Barack Obama has been worried in the slightest about his re-election bid, he definitely hired the right guy to get his ad campaign back on track: none other the than the voice of God, Morgan Freeman.

The Obama campaign released a new ad on Saturday, narrated by the Oscar-winning actor. The 30-second TV spot, titled “Challenges,” goes over President Obama’s accomplishments throughout his first term, emphasizing the unique challenges he has had to face as president, his foreign policy record, and his professed commitment to the middle class.

“Every president inherits challenges. Few have faced so many. Four years later, our enemies have been brought to justice, our heroes are coming home, assembly lines are humming again. There are still challenges to meet: children to educate, a middle class to rebuild. But the last thing we should do is turn back now.”

Morgan Freeman has long been a supporter of President Obama, especially during his re-election campaign, reports Politico. He donated $1 million to the Obama campaign super PAC in July, saying then:

“President Obama has done a remarkable job in historically difficult circumstances,” continuing, “In return, he is the target of hundreds of millions of dollars from right-wing sources. I am proud to lend my voice — and support — to those who defend him.”

Here is “Challenges,” the new President Obama campaign ad voiced by Morgan Freeman. Let us know what you think, readers. Can this help revitalize President Obama’s campaign following his defeat in the first presidential debate?
