Karl Rove’s New Obama Ad Trumpets ‘Us Vs. Them’

In a new ad, “Over,” launched by the Karl Rove-backed Crossroads GPS super PAC, the narrator declares to President Barack Obama, “The time for politics has ended.” A political strategist is using his political action committee to stress that now is not the time for politics. Isn’t that something? Why don’t I go to Popeye’s, order myself a six-piece crispy strips meal with cajun fries, then walk around screaming, “Eat healthy!!!”

The initial buy for the “Over” ad is reportedly $500,000, with it reportedly airing on various cable stations across the country, plus the local market in Washington, D.C., this weekend. In a statement about the ad, Crossroads GPS President and CEO Steven Law claims:

The White House has shown it is not serious about the debt, as it has yet to propose significant spending cuts to go along with its massive proposed tax hikes. Serious revenue concessions have been made, but Obama won’t take yes for an answer.

So not only does Rove and his political henchmen not realize that the election is over, they want to continue operating under a parallel universe, where they refuse to cooperate in the name of bipartisanship.
