Crossroads (Karl Rove) commits $16M to presidential, Senate campaign ads

Source: The Hill

The conservative super-PAC backed by former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove announced Tuesday that it would purchase $11 million in television commercials this week, their largest one-week buy of the election, in a new campaign slamming President Obama's jobs record.

The significant ad buy from American Crossroads comes on top of an additional $1 million radio buy and a $4 million television campaign targeting U.S. Senate races in North Dakota, Florida, Virginia and Montana, the group reported Tuesday. The Senate ads will be funded by Crossroads GPS, an affiliated political advocacy organization.

"Obama's weak leadership has yielded weak results and a weaker America. Staying on Obama’s course means a weaker America every day," Crossorads Chairman Steven Law, a former Bush administration official, said in a statement.

The anti-Obama commercial is airing in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia, and features a man comparing projections of the unemployment rate to where it stands today. The group is notably not running the ad in Wisconsin, though Restore Our Future, another GOP outside group, has been running ads there in recent weeks.

1. What an epic waste of money

8. Absolutely

This is what its all about. These groups allegedly have a couple of hundred million in the bank. This buy is mere pocket change.

3. Somebody buy that "weak weak weak" dumb-ass a thesaurus.

I know Rove turns lies into Truth by repetition, but ya need a little variety now and again.

4. Majority have made their minds up and will hit the mute button.

I can image how all this money on both sides even the other sides could help America get back on its feet. I'm pretty sure money spent will be well over several billions. I could image helping children and the homeless with some of this money but alas greed and power are the new norm in America.

6. I already do hit the mute button

when Paul Ryan speaks or Romney appears. I just can't stand to listen to them any longer.

At this point, it really doesn't matter to me what happens at the debates. There is no way I would ever vote for a Republican, knowing what that party has morphed into being. So I no longer allow myself to get upset by someone who will never change my vote.

7. Do any people remember that Rove was one of

the original "Dirty Tricksters" for Nixon during Watergate? Though questioned about his involvement, he apparently was able to lie his way out of paying any consequences. He was a slime ball back then and he's a slime ball now.

10. "A former Bush administration official" is as damning a description...

...as I can imagine, given the incompetence and profligacy of that particular team.

11. I'm curious how Rove will be perceived by the GOP big-money folks...

....after the GOP loses this Presidential election.

Or, will Rove manage to pass the blame off to the Romney campaign?

12. He will find a way.

No doubt his commentary on faux will continue to be valued, so he has that welfare check to deposit.

13. Looks like he's pocketing most of it.

Sixteen million is probably less than one-tenth of what Rove's operation has taken in over the past couple of months.

Looks like Karl is taking this opportunity to bag a windfall profit and take a couple of years off.

14. They Still Have to Pay "Voter Registration" People, Thugs to Challenge Voters, Ballot Box Stuffers…

They will obviously be moving their "voter registration" activities to the superPACs, where they can keep things secret, and avoid any further blowback onto the campaign.

They will also have to pay thugs to challenge and intimidate voters, ballot box stuffers, computer technicians to flip votes…
