Conservative group Crossroads GPS will begin a $20 million campaign over the next two months against President Barack Obama, hammering him on the economy.
The campaign includes a $5 million ad buy over the next two weeks on local network and national cable television in 10 states, including the key swing states of Colorado, Florida, Missouri, North Carolina and Virginia.
The ad criticizes Obama’s economic record, citing high unemployment, the national debt and the price of gasoline since he took office. It also dings the president for his stimulus plan and his admission that the jobs it was supposed to create were “not as shovel-ready as [he] expected.”
The spot ends with a female narrator saying, “It’s time to take away Obama’s blank check.”
Roll Call has launched a new feature, Hill Navigator, to advise congressional staffers and would-be staffers on how to manage workplace issues on Capitol Hill. Please send us your questions anything from office etiquette, to handling awkward moments, to what happens when the work life gets too personal. Submissions will be treated anonymously.
