Mitt Romney is launching his general-election ad blitz with a spot featuring his hypothetical first day in office—which he'd devote to cleaning up after President Obama, according to the ad. Looks like a busy first day: "President Romney" would start by approving the Keystone Pipeline, "creating thousands of jobs that Obama blocked," the voiceover says.

Then he'd introduce "tax cuts and reforms that reward job creators, not punish them." Next up, an "order to begin replacing ObamaCare with common-sense health care reform." The ad will appear in Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, and Iowa thanks to a $1.2 million airtime purchase, reports USA Today. It's "a positive ad about the things that I will do if I am president," the candidate says. (More Mitt Romney stories.)
