RNC Attack Ad on Obama Spending

The Republican National Committee released the latest Election 2012 television attack ad on Wednesday seeking to compare Obama’s handling of the economy to violently spectacular car and train crashes; “Don’t let Obama drives us to disaster.” The creative imagination behind this rhetoric is driving me crazy!

Titled "Change Direction" the ad contained snippets including "$800 billion stimulus," "trillions for government health care," and "2 million jobs gone" with a background of fast-moving cars, trains, roller coasters and finishing with a train veering off the rails. "Left turn after left turn, America is headed the wrong way fast," (Cheeky word play there with "left turn.") says the narrator. "Don't let Obama drive us to disaster." The ad was broadcast nationally and finished with a plea for donations to the RNC. Give us your money… pretty please.
