Crossroads GPS, a conservative group founded by Karl Rove, is out with a new TV ad in Virginia blasting President Barack Obama for his handling of the economy.
The ad, titled “News,” begins with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley stating, on July 17 of this year, “Good evening. This is the worst economic recover America has ever had.”
A female narrator then quickly runs through a list of sobering statistics, calling them “the result of President Obama’s failed stimulus policies.”
The 30-second ad began airing today and will run through for 10 days, backed by a $1.7 million ad buy in the state.
It is the final piece of a $25 million push by the group in key swing states focused on the economy, jobs and taxes.
