Obama campaign releases ad emphasizing economy

WASHINGTON

The commercial, which was made public early Monday, acknowledges that "we're not there yet" on new jobs to replace those lost in the deep recession of 2008-2009. But it calls Obama the right person to entrust with the nation's future. The commercial focuses on Obama's case for re-election and doesn't involve direct attacks on presumptive Republican presidential rival Mitt Romney.

It includes a statement that under Obama's watch, "our greatest enemy" was brought to justice, referring to assassinated al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

Obama officially kicked off his campaign for re-election over the weekend with appearances in Virginia and Ohio.
