New Rove ad hits Obama as a 'celebrity' (here we go again)

Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads is up with a video which strings together clips of President Obama dancing, singing, drinking a beer and "slow-jamming" the news.

The tagline: "After 4 years of a celebrity president, is your life any better?"

First Read: "The ad picks up where John McCain left off with his Biggest Celebrity in the World ad, a narrative that was starting to take hold... until McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate."

Why yes, KKKarl, my life is better. My 401K has gained back all the ground it lost under Bush and then some. I've gotten a raise for the first time in two years after five years of no raises due to 'economic uncertainty'. So for me, the answer is yes.

4. Hey Karl, 2008 called. They want their masterful political strategy back.

This is a campaign genius?

5. Four years ago, Rove said Obama was an elitist, too good for the average American.

Whatever

7. (1) Nobody liked any of the Republican candidates; (2) Nobody likes Romney;

(3) Lots of folk like Obama;
(4) Rove needs more people to dislike Obama;
(5) Rove ain't got squat;
(6) So Rove will try to make people dislike Obama for being likeable

I expect we'll see a lot of ads based on this script:

Obama! He's pleasant and intelligent and successful and good-looking! He works hard and knows what he's talking about! And he cares! Well, fuck that shit! Can't we all come together and agree we just hate the guy! Vote Republican!

8. Stuff like this only works if people don't like someone

And people like Obama. They may not be happy with him, but they like him.

11. What I find interesting is that his personal likability is 56%.

What this means is that there must also be some Republicans who like Obama. Who'da thought...
