Talk about lobbing the RNC a softball.
Via ABC News:
The Republican National Committee released a new web video Monday lampooning the Obama campaign’s latest fundraising effort, a web ad with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour that came out Friday, the same day as the dismal jobs report.
The RNC’s online video titled “Meanwhile” pokes fun at the Wintour web video, beginning with the line “On the same day the unemployment rate rose to 8.2 percent. . . .” Both videos are online only.
As Wintour talks about a fundraiser for the Obama campaign she is hosting with actress Sarah Jessica Parker and first lady Michelle Obama, unemployment numbers for different groups before and after the Obama presidency flash on the screen, including a rise in joblessness among women, Hispanics, African-Americans and young people.
The web video ends with the line “Obama is focused on keeping his job, but what about yours?”
“There couldn’t be a better demonstration of this president’s misplaced priorities than a glitzy fundraising video release on the same day that marked more unemployed Americans,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus in a statement. “It’s more than obvious that this president just doesn’t get it. Millions are out of work, struggling to make ends meet and all this president cares about is raising money with the rich and famous to protect his own job.”
