New Americans for Prosperity Ad: 'President Obama - A One-Term Proposition'Topics: Political News and commentaries
The NYT Caucus reports:
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Americans for Prosperity, the Tea Party organization backed by the Koch brothers, is set to begin a $25 million advertising assault aimed at President Obama, its largest effort to date.Can't help but notice that the Caucus managed to get two of the left's favorite targets ... Koch brothers and Tea Party ... in just the first paragraph.
The group said that the first of several ads would begin appearing on Wednesday in 11 battleground states, including here in Florida. The campaign will last for three weeks -- extending through Labor Day weekend -- and includes Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
The first ad, titled "President Obama: A One-Term Proposition," hits the president over the rising national debt -- an issue that conservative political groups like Americans for Prosperity and American Crossroads, which is run with the help of Karl Rove, believe is particularly powerful with swing voters in this election.
As for the ad itself, Obama did indeed utter the words, "I will be held accountable" ... ergo it's certainly appropriate to point it out and hold him to his own words.
