American Crossroads up with $2.2 million spot in Florida

in Uncategorized by

American Crossroads on Wednesday launched a new ad in Florida attacking President Obama’s economic policies and arguing that another term would mean “another four years focused on everything but jobs.”

Supported by a $2.2 million television buy, the new 30-second ad will run for one week in the Sunshine State.  The spot, entitled “Four More,” hits Obama for not focusing on economic matters for the first four years of his presidency, and asks why voters would want four more years of the same.

“More of the same,” the ad’s narrator beings in reference to Obama. “He’s demanding tax hikes. Over 2 million small businesses will get higher taxes, 700,000 workers a pink slip, and he wants more spending, just like his failed stimulus. After trillions in more debt with nothing to show for it, we can’t repeat those mistakes. Another four years focused on everything but jobs? No thanks.”

 “Obama’s weak leadership on the economy over the last four years has yielded weak results and a weaker America,” said American Crossroads president and CEO Steven Law said in a release accompanying the ad.  “If the last four years saw the worst economic recovery in modern history, why should voters expect another four years of Obama to be any different?”
