Crossroads spends another $11 million to air ad in battlegrounds

Source: CNN

American Crossroads, the major conservative super PAC co-founded by Karl Rove, said Tuesday it was spending another $11 million to air a spot critical of President Barack Obama in key battleground states.

The ad, which features a woman at her kitchen table directing questions to Obama, will run in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia. It will also air on stations airing Big 10 and SEC college football games.

The ad buy Tuesday comes after another $11 million buy from Crossroads, announced last week, which ran in the same eight battleground states. That spot hit Obama for his record on jobs.

The commercial released Tuesday begins with a woman watching an Obama ad on television, before turning to the camera and saying: "Mr. President, here's what I want to know: where are the jobs you promised? The trillions you spent where did it all go? What's there to show for all of that new debt? And if we're in a recovery, why are we making less?"

Just another reminder that the debate tonight is not occurring in a vacuum. Right wing groups have been dumping millions in the past few weeks to buy the Presidency.

4. Plus, Corporate CEOs Telling Employees To Vote For Romney. Corporate Serfdom

We are seeing a new America where people are serfs and slaves to corporations. The people have lost the right to vote because their employers can now exercise their Citizens United right to threaten to fire them if the unpreferred candidate wins.

5. I pretty much think that majority of people who intend to vote

have made up their minds and will either hit the mute button, turn the channel or leave the room. When Obama wins it will tell the world that America is not for sale.
