RNC Releases New "Morning in America" Radio Ad


Below, release from the RNC.....


WASHINGTON - The Republican National Committee (RNC) is releasing a new radio ad, titled 'Morning in America' in 8 targeted states -- Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina & Michigan -- ahead of the president's latest 'pivot to jobs' speech. All are states President Obama won in 2008 but is now vulnerable in because of his failed economic leadership and resulting high unemployment.

"Based on the past two and a half years, it is difficult to expect anything different from this president in Thursday's speech," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "Unfortunately, it appears he plans to recycle the same old failed policies and blame game that we've seen repeatedly. As his approval rating plummets, the president is once again claiming to pivot to jobs. Unfortunately this is too little too late. His summer schedule was chocked-full of campaign fundraisers, taxpayer-funded bus tours, golf outings and a luxury vacation to Martha's Vineyard. This president has been twiddling his thumbs and, as a result, zero jobs were added in August. Despite his failed leadership, he is now blaming everyone but himself for the economy. Already in full campaign mode, expect to see more finger-pointing from this president who adamantly refuses to lead."

"Morning in America" Radio Ad Script

VOICEOVER

It's Morning Again in America

Is Barack Obama finally waking up?

After a 10-day luxury vacation on Martha's Vineyard, the President says he'll finally get serious about jobs.

But we've heard this before...

After his 825 Billion Dollar Stimulus Debacle...

And after his 2.5 Trillion dollar government-run health care plan...

Now again, after our national credit has been downgraded.

But what can we expect from Obama's new Stimulus plan?

More spending.

We've already tried that; causing unemployment to shoot up and our deficit to balloon.

In fact, before this ad is done, our debt will have grown by an additional two and a half million dollars.

Enough is enough...

Let's change direction.
