:30 ad from Sept. 18, 2012 run in CO, FL, IA, NV, NH, NC, OH and VA.

Sherry Wuebben, small business owner: Small businesses like ours are what have driven this country and President Obama just doesn't seem to understand that.

Bill Schams, business in family since 1949: There's a reason there aren't more jobs.  Obama has made a lot of bad decisions.

He treats us like we are his enemy.

Sherry Wuebben: He's increased our taxes, he's increased our health care expenses...

Bill Schams: We've gotten so many regulations that you can't keep on and you don't know what more is coming down the pike.  Obama definitely is making things harder for us.

If he has four more years, I don't think we're going to want to see what that looks like.

Male Announcer: American Crossroads is responsible for the content of this advertising.

American Crossroads Launches $8.3 Million TV Ad Buy Featuring Small Business Owners

New TV ad will air in eight states for one week

WASHINGTON – American Crossroads today launched a new television ad that features interviews with two small business owners blasting President Obama’s “bad decisions” which have made it difficult for small businesses to create jobs.  Citing increased taxes, rising health care expenses, and burdensome regulations, the job creators effectively make the real-world case that President Obama is destroying small businesses – the engine of the U.S. economy.

The new 30-second ad, which is backed by an $8.3 million buy, will run in eight targeted states for one week.  Titled “Next,” the spot will run in the following states: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.

“With Barack Obama calling the shots in the White House, entrepreneurs feel threatened and admit they are uncertain of their ability to create jobs,” said American Crossroads director of state and regional media relations Nate Hodson.  “President Obama would rather make small business owners the enemy than take responsibility for mismanaging the economy over the last four years.”
