Karl Rove's Crossroads $25m ad buy to match President Obama's spots


Considering some of its previous ads have had factual problems, there's a chance the ad above might have inaccuracies. We'll be checking. Meantime, here's the press release:

WASHINGTON – Today, Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) announced a new $25 million issue advocacy initiative over the next four weeks in ten states, including Florida, to frame the national debate on jobs, the economy, ObamaCare and government debt.

The first phase of the initiative launches Thursday with a new Crossroads GPS TV ad, “Broken Promises” which will air in Florida for a total buy of $1.5 million.  The spot details the Obama Administration’s poor results on fixing the troubled economy, cutting the debt, keeping taxes low, and other key issues.

In addition to Florida, the initial television buy includes network affiliates in Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

The new ad will start airing Thursday, May 17 and run through May 31. The spot can be viewed here, and is available for high resolution download upon request. 

“President Obama made commitments on core issues to the American people, and this ad holds him to account,” said Steven Law, president of Crossroads GPS. “Our country faces serious economic and fiscal problems which require practical solutions and not just promises.  If we don’t hold Washington politicians accountable, we won’t fix these problems that are holding our country back.”

The ad urges citizens to support the “New Majority Agenda.”  For more information about the six major policy initiatives detailed in the plan, visit www.newmajorityagenda.org

Crossroads GPS is a policy and grassroots advocacy organization that is committed to educating, equipping and mobilizing millions of American citizens to take action on the critical economic and legislative issues that will shape our nation’s future in the years ahead.

Isn't Crossroads little Nazi Karl Rove's group?


Great commercial


The Dark Lord of Politics Is Back!

Karl Rove is the Voldemort of politics...

"He who Must NOT Be Named" is one of the reasons so many people now dislike and distrust the Republican party. Why do you think his pal former President George Bush calls him "Turd Blossom"!

--Rove was accused of being behind a phone poll called a "push-pull poll" that asked voters questions like: would people be "more or less likely to vote for the Democrat Governor Ann Richards of Texas if they knew her staff was dominated by lesbians?
--One of the more notorious dirty tricks of which Rove is accused is the so-called “push-pull poll” conducted in South Carolina during the 2000 primaries, when George W. Bush and John McCain were vying for the Republican presidential nomination. The poll suggested that McCain, who has an adopted daughter from Bangladesh, had fathered an illegitimate child with a black woman.
--In one campaign, a former Rove staffer reported that a whisper campaign alleging the opponent, a democrat, was a pedophile (a pedophile!?) started with Rove.

"Win at ANY Cost" no matter how high...
