Video- RNC Ad: 'The Promise That Became A Punch Line'

By Susan Duclos

The RNC has launched a hard hitting ad last Friday showing Barack Obama's promises, in his own words on video, compared to reality. It is titled "The Promise That Became A Punch Line"

“Three years ago today, President Obama signed his ‘stimulus’ into law, and it’s clear, by Obama’s own standards, that his signature economic plan has been an abject failure,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus in a statement.

“The president promised the nearly trillion-dollar stimulus would ‘immediately’ produce millions of ‘shovel-ready’ jobs. Yet last year, President Obama admitted what was already obvious: Those jobs ‘were not as shovel-ready as we expected.’ Furthermore, he promised the unemployment rate would not exceed 8 percent, yet 36 months later we’ve seen the longest period of high unemployment since the Great Depression.”
