A new ad from Senator Scott Brown, contrasting statements in support of free enterprise by those like John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan with those made by Barack Obama and Brown's Massachusetts Senate opponent, Elizabeth Warren:

Here's the transcript:

VIDEO TEXT: "How Did We Go From This..."

VIDEO TEXT: "I believe in an America where the free enterprise system flourishes for all other systems to see and admire - where no businessman lacks either competition or credit - and where no monopoly, no racketeer, no government bureaucracy can put him out of business that he built up with his own initiative." JOHN F. KENNEDY

PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON: "A government that understands that jobs must come from growth in a vibrant and vital system of free enterprise."  

PRESIDENT LYNDON B. JOHNSON: "I am so proud of our system of government, of our free enterprise, where our incentive system and our men who head our big industries are willing to get up at daylight and work until midnight to offer employment and create new jobs for people."

PRESIDENT GERALD FORD: "I have faith in America. Through our system of democracy and free enterprise, the United States has achieved remarkable, unbelievable progress."

PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN: "Small business is the gateway to opportunity for those who want a piece of the American Dream. Wouldn't it be nice to hear a little more about the forgotten heroes of America, those who create most of our new jobs, like the owners of stores down the street, the faithful who support our churches, synagogues, schools and communities. The brave men and women everywhere who produce our goods, feed a hungry world, and keep our families warm while they invest in the future to build a better America. That's where miracles are made. Not In Washington, DC." 

VIDEO TEXT: "To This..."

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: "If you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. You didn't get there on your own. I'm always struck by people who think, 'well it must because I was so smart.' Because if you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

HARVARD PROFESSOR ELIZABETH WARREN: "There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there -- good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for."

U.S. SENATOR SCOTT BROWN: "When you do well, everyone else does well.  And I promise you this, I will never demonize you as business leaders and business owners for the work you do or the opportunities you create because I think we should not be blaming you - we should be thanking you."
