Via Jim Geraghty, here's the latest Crossroads GPS ad:
Geraghty titles his post using a quote from the ad in which a mom is lamenting that her grown kids are forced to live at home because they can't find jobs:
‘He Promised Change… But Things Changed For the Worse.’
That's disappointing. Not so much the Geraghty post -- but that the ad didn't use the quote Geraghty caught in this old post from June of last year:
Obama: ‘For a lot of our friends and neighbors, that change has been painful.’
Geraghty even surmised in that post:
Somehow I suspect President Obama provided his opponents with more video fodder with this comment at Cree Inc., in Durham, North Carolina.
I think Crossroads could have deftly worked that quote into their ad to great effect. They should have listened to Geraghty.
But it of course is by no means a professional campaign ad.
