TV ad celebrates President Reagan's birthday by contrasting his vision for America with that of President Obama.

Happy Birthday, President Reagan. We miss your belief in the power of freedom.

Today, Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s premier advocate for economic freedom, released a very special “Happy Birthday” message to honor President Ronald Reagan on his 101st birthday. The 60-second television spot contrasts Reagan’s optimism, prosperity, and belief in freedom contrary statements made by President Obama.

Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips said, “On Reagan’s birthday, I can’t help but miss the President more than ever. He recognized the true power of economic freedom, and believed in supporting and fostering Americans' individual pursuit of happiness."

Called “Two Visions,” the ad compares and contrasts quotes from the two presidents, showing the stark difference in their view of what America should be.

“It’s important to remind ourselves what a terrific difference a great leader can make in this country,” Phillips continued. “President Reagan knew that free market policies would result in millions of new American jobs, exploding personal incomes, with broad-based prosperity and optimism for our nation. However, President Obama seems to have a different vision for America, epitomized by his call for more government and more taxes in the recent State of the Union address."
