JANUARY 18, 2012 Obama to Launch Campaign Ad on Thursday

By Carol E. Lee

President Barack Obama will go on the air Thursday with his first ad of his re-election campaign, his campaign announced Wednesday.

The ad, entitled “Unprecedented,” is a defensive spot that focuses on Mr. Obama’s record on clean energy initiatives and jobs, while criticizing ads from Republican groups the ad says are funded by “secretive oil billionaires.” It will air in five battleground states: Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The spot specifically targets the Koch brothers’ group Americans for Prosperity. It defends Mr. Obama on questions raised about a loan his administration gave to the now-defunct solar energy company Solyndra. “President Obama. Kept his promise to toughen ethics rules…” a narrator says.

The campaign, which had been exploring ad purchases in 14 key states, could expand the scope of the buy. Mr. Obama has been hit by advertising from Republican groups and has been a frequent target of GOP presidential candidates as they have campaigned in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

The spots will go on the air ahead of Mr. Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday. The president will then travel next week to some of the states where the ads were purchased, including Iowa and Michigan.

Yeah, right. Those EVIL Republicans that want oil from CANADA coming to the US, vs. Steve making sure the Straits of Hormuz can be blocked by the Iranians. Tell me that we do not have Quisling running the Executive Branch. Please, Lord, take the trash out!

Nice early clue from the Obama campaign about how bad their internal polling numbers are.

Good God this man is an idiot.
His energy initiatives consist of giving our money to green firms that have failed. And what jobs? People are giving up looking and unemployment is still 8.5 percent or higher!

“the ad says are funded by “secretive oil billionaires.””

Create the meme, feed the meme, PUSH the meme.

It does not matter if the meme is factual, or not, if you control the messaging. Cue the MSM endless stories about those “Kochsuckers!”, the Koch’s.

Add in the intention to defang them in the Wisconsin recall election, as well.

Whenever O comes on the screen, I change the channel even faster than if it’s a soccer game.
