New American Crossroads TV Ad Hits Obama on Hollow Campaign Slogan, Failed Economic Record

New $6.6m TV ad will air in eight states over ten days

WASHINGTON – American Crossroads today launched a new television ad that blasts President Obama for his failed economic policies, and demonstrates that contrary to Obama’s “Forward” campaign slogan, America is really moving backward on his watch.

Supported by a $6.6 million television buy, the new 30-second ad will run in eight targeted states for ten days.  The spot, entitled “Forward?” will run in the following states: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia. The ad highlights a series of economic facts on the extent of Obama’s economic malaise, including that 40% of families are living paycheck to paycheck on Obama’s watch.

The ad can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdP6FqF5-SA.  Broadcast-quality versions are available upon request.

“For Barack Obama, ‘Forward’ is the new backward, because another four years of Obama’s economic policies will only keep moving America backward,” said American Crossroads communications director Jonathan Collegio. “Obama’s hollow campaign slogan is another attempt to divert attention from the fact that during Obama’s tenure, unemployment, household incomes, gas prices and the national debt are all getting worse.”
