"Stick with this guy"

That's a testimonial in Barack Obama's new TV ad, arguing that the economy is on the upswing and that the president deserves another four years.

Lest it seem too discordant with the nation's mood, it's a very muted celebration of the recovery, and one that tries to parallel the country's anxious but improving outlook on the economy. Thus, there aren't any big claims or sweeping scores, and the metaphoric four more years isn't chanted with exclamation; only with quiet testimonial.

The spot will run in Colorado, Iowa, Nevada, and Virginia.
