American Crossroads

"Actually Happened" +
:30 ad from Oct. 2, 2012 run in CO, FL, IA, NV, NH, NC, OH and VA.

Man: This is what President Obama said the jobless rate would be if we passed the stimulus.  5.6%.

But this is what the jobless rate actually is.  8.1%.

The difference?  About 3.7 million jobs.

Obama's spending drove us $5 trillion deeper in debt, and now we have fewer jobs than when he started.

What Obama promised versus what he delivered.

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

Notes: Interesting effects with the man seeming to make the graphics appear.

New American Crossroads TV Ad Contrasts Obama’s Economic Promises – With What Actually Happened

American Crossroads launches $11m buy in eight states focusing on President’s hollow promises and lack of results on economy.

WASHINGTON – American Crossroads today launched a major new television ad contrasting Obama’s promises for the economic recovery against the record that his policies actually delivered.

Supported by an $11 million television buy, the new 30-second ad will run in eight states for ten days.  The spot, entitled “Actually Happened,” will run in the following states: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia. The ad highlights Obama’s promise that unemployment would decrease to 5.6% if Congress enacted his stimulus legislation, but shows that unemployment is far worse than he promised, and that Obama created massive debt in his first term instead of jobs.

The ad can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRBSDg4d4U4.  Broadcast-quality versions are available upon request.

“Obama’s weak leadership has yielded weak results and a weaker America,” said American Crossroads president and CEO Steven Law. “Staying on Obama’s course means a weaker America every day – that’s what this election is about.”

The Crossroads groups are also separately launching approximately $4m in Senate ads today.
