According to a post by Crossroads GPS on its official website that day, the $7 million TV anti-Obama ad will be aired starting Tuesday night, as part of its $25 million effort to focus the national issue debate on jobs, the economy, taxes, and debt.
As noted in the press release, the TV ad buy, titled “Stopwatch”, includes network affiliates in 10 US states including Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia; and will run for two weeks.
“Why isn’t the economy stronger? In the seconds it takes to watch this, our national debt will increase $1.4 million. In 2008, Barack Obama said, ‘We can’t mortgage our children’s future on a mountain of debt.’” The narrator said on the 30-second video.
“Now he’s adding $4 billion in debt every day, borrowing from China for his spending. Every second, growing our debt faster than our economy. Tell Obama, stop the spending.” The narrator added, with the ad on the end part encourages viewers to support the ‘New Majority Agenda‘.
“While Europe is in the throes of debt-fueled economic crisis, President Obama keeps spending and charging more on the nation’s maxed-out credit cards.” Crossroads GPS President Steven Law was quoted at CrossroadsGPS.org.
“We want to encourage a serious debate on the national debt that transcends President Obama‘s class-warfare tax hikes.” Mr. Law added, with Crossroads GPS reportedly has Karl Rove, Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff of former President George W. Bush, as one of its advisers.
