A conservative group linked to President George W. Bush’s former adviser Karl Rove is launching a massive ad buy across 10 battleground states accusing President Barack Obama of broken promises when it comes to jobs, the economy and cutting the deficit.
Crossroads GPS, a 501(c)(4) group that is not required to disclose its donors, is spending $8 million between now and the end of May to run a minute-long ad featuring video of the “promises” Obama made during the 2008 campaign and early in his presidency.
“President Obama’s agenda promised so much,” the ad says. “We need solutions, not just promises.”
The spot is just the beginning of a $25 million ad buy the group plans to launch over the next month and comes just days after Obama’s re-election campaign announced its own $25 million ad push.
The ad buy is a hint of how influential Crossroads GPS and its sister group, American Crossroads, will be leading up to November’s general election. While Mitt Romney is busy raising money to overcome Obama’s huge cash advantage in the race, the Crossroads groups can step in and provide air coverage to aid the presumptive GOP nominee.
The Crossroads ad echoes a message Romney’s campaign has been pushing this week—though under the campaign finance law, the group is not allowed legally to coordinate with the candidate.
The ad is scheduled to run in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
The Crossroads groups have announced plans to raise and spend upwards of $240 million ahead of Election Day. They’ve already raised more than $100 million—including $49 million in the first three months of the year alone—and spent at least $12 million on ad campaigns trashing Obama’s record on the economy.

Obama stated Water Boarding is Torture, now I am taking credit for killing Osama when waterboarding and other interogating techniques were used to obtain information to find Osama. Those techniques were used when George Bush was President but not under my watch. I killed Osama not Bush!
Obama is a Muslim. hates America, the U.S. Constitution and was born in Kenya.
