American Crossroads

"At Stake" +
:30 ad from Oct. 24, 2012 run in CO, FL, IA, NV, NH, OH and VA.

[Music] Clint Eastwood: In the last few years, America's been knocked down.

Twenty-three million people can't find full-time work.

We borrow $4 billion every single day, much of it from China.

When someone doesn't get the job done, you've got to hold them accountable.

Obama's second term would be a re-run of the first and our country just couldn't survive that.

We need someone who can turn it around fast, and that man is Mitt Romney.

There's not much time left and the future of our country is at stake.

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

“President Obama failed to turn the economy around over the last four years, hasn’t proposed anything new for the next four years, and we need to hold him accountable by electing a new president,” said Steven Law, President and CEO of American Crossroads. “America is facing the slowest economic recovery in modern history, and our president hasn’t proposed to do anything different to turn it around.”
