Via Weekly Standard:
President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign released another campaign ad this morning, a 60-second spot that will run in battleground states Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. “While the campaign has done a number of response spots, this is the first proactive, paid spot in battleground states,” Politico says. But the Obama campaign also takes a little time to take a whack at the Tea Party.
The ad begins with the “economic meltdown” of 2008, with “America’s economy spiraling down.” That all happened, we’re, told prior to 2009, “before this president took the oath,” Then, the Obama campaign takes aim at the Tea Party.
“Some said our best days were behind us,” the ad’s narrator says, as pictures of the Tea Party are displayed on screen [seen above].
. . .The ad would have you believe that Tea Party participants bet against America in 2009, instead of the opposite. In this narrative, the Tea Party was against America, while President Obama saved America — though, not completely, since “We’re not there yet.”
