New Crossroads ad in Virginia blasts Obama attacks

Virginia should get ready for a double negative: a negative ad blasting — you guessed it! — negative ads.

“What happened to Barack Obama?” the voice-over begins. “The press and even Democrats say his attacks on Mitt Romney’s business record are ‘misleading, unfair and untrue.’ ‘Blowing smoke.’ ‘Too far.’ ‘No evidence.’ ”

The ad goes on to say that Obama is airing those TV spots to divert attention from his own record on government spending and the economy.

American Crossroads is spending $9.3 million to air the ad in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia. Of that, $996,000 will be spent in Virginia.
