The Obama campaign, which has focused many of its swing-state ads on attacking Republican Mitt Romney, will run a feel-good ad during NBC's broadcast of the Opening Ceremony on Friday evening. (NBC's tape-delayed broadcast coverage begins at 7:30 p.m. ET.) The president's ad, titled "I Believe," focuses on "workers, doers, and dreamers," and emphasizes the importance of growing the economy "from the middle out."
