Crossroads to bash Obama on FL TV over gas prices



WASHINGTON – Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) today announced the launch of a new TV spot in Florida focusing on President Obama's disappointing efforts to keep gas prices low – specifically, policies which have decreased energy production.

The issue ad, entitled “Too Much,” will start Wednesday on broadcast and cable networks in Tampa-St-Petersburg, Orlando, West Palm Beach, and Fort Myers-Naples for a total of $789,388.

The spot, which can be viewed here, urges viewers to contact the White House to advocate for realistic energy solutions which will address the rising cost of gasoline.  It is also available for high resolution download upon request. 

“President Obama’s ‘hope and change’ has deteriorated into hype and blame – puffing up his record and blaming others for his policy failures,” said Crossroads GPS president Steven Law. “This ad sets the record straight and calls for real solutions to sky-high gas prices, not more political spin.”

According to the U.S. Department of Interior, oil production on federal lands and waters decreased by 14% in 2011 from the previous year. Meanwhile, the president personally lobbied the U.S. Senate to block the Keystone XL pipeline, which would have brought oil from Canada to American refineries, and his administration has virtually eliminated the creation of any new coal electricity plants.

Crossroads GPS is a policy and grassroots advocacy organization that is committed to educating, equipping and mobilizing millions of American citizens.
