Mourning in America

September 22, 2010

Citizens for the Republic has produced an ad modeled on President Reagan’s classic 1984 “Morning in America” ad. Except today it is not “morning”, but rather “Mourning in America:”

In 1984, the Reagan reelection campaign set the standard for modern political advertising with its fabled “Morning in America” series, which included one of the greatest political ads of all time — “Better, Prouder, Stronger.” The ad captured the zeitgeist — America under President Reagan was coming back, full of optimism and confidence in the future.

Today, the zeitgeist is exactly the opposite. Americans are worried about their future, and about a government determined to implement policies that just don’t work. But like its predecessor, “Mourning in America” offers a new hope — if we can just get our government to return to time-tested policies that can spark a rebirth of liberty.

Here is President Reagan’s 1984 ad:
