Pres. Obama Making Conservatives Jealous Of His Popularity, Again
1 year ago
“Celebrity” ad makes a comeback, in new super-PAC web video
Is it silly season already?
This week, American Crossroads dug “deep” into the negativity time capsule to produce an ad you’ve probably already seen before.
Take a look:
If you were paying attention to the last presidential election cycle – and who wasn’t, really – you’d immediately notice the similarities with John McCain’s 2008 attack ad.
The polling difference between the president and former governor Mitt Romney may not be wide, but the creativity gap between parties is, by miles.
Clearly, the above-mentioned super-PAC missed that part of the “movie” where McCain’s “celebrity” attack ad did not help him with independent voters, who found his attack of Obama’s popularity “silly.”

Conservatives have used many topics to attack the president, whether it’s calling him a snob, or attacking his religion, or attacking his upbringing. But it’s safe to assume, if Romney had any of the charismatic qualities of the current president, these groups wouldn’t be chiding the president for his ability to connect with voters.
