(CNN) – With a month until Election Day, the Obama campaign is trying keep voters’ attention focused on their pocketbooks and retirement savings accounts.
In “This Year,” the latest in a string of Obama ads with economic themes, the Democratic nominee uses images of locked factory gates and anxiety on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. “Erratic in a crisis. Out of touch on the economy,” the ad says as images of Sen. John McCain getting off an airplane and riding a golf cart appear on screen.
The commercial comes amid talk of McCain preparing to adopt a more aggressive strategy in the final month of the general election campaign, first reported Saturday in the Washington Post.
“Struggling families can’t turn the page on this economy,” the ad says.
The McCain campaign has not responded to CNN's request for comment about "This Year."
The new ad will begin airing Monday on national cable outlets, according to the Obama campaign.


Script, "This Year," 30 seconds, national cable:
ANNCR: Three quarters of a million jobs lost this year.
Our financial system in turmoil.
And John McCain? Erratic in a crisis. Out of touch on the economy.
No wonder his campaign’s announced a plan to “turn a page on the financial crisis”…distract with dishonest, dishonorable “assaults” against Barack Obama.
Struggling families can’t turn the page on this economy…and we can’t afford another President who’s this out of touch.
Obama: I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message.
New Obama ad tries to focus nation's attention on the economy


This is the best thing for Obama to do. Don't let McCain try to take the focus off of the economy with old bullshit about Rev. Wright, Rezko and Ayers.
