AFP Ad: Hope and Change Has Failed (Watch Video)
Americans for Prosperity has released a new ad using testimonials from people who voted for Obama in 2008 who will not be voting for him again.
The ad, titled, “Has President Obama Earned Your Vote?” is the second phase of AFP’s major nationwide ad buy, and will be airing in Pennsylvania.
The minute-long ad spot uses personal testimonials from 2008 Obama supporters. These previous supporters say they regret voting for Obama in 2008, and explain that “Hope and Change” did not translate to positive results for this country.
The ad opens with one supporter who said, “In 2008, I voted for President Obama with no reluctance.”
“He presented himself as something different,” says another.
They mention Obamacare, which “he got through…but at what cost?”
Amongst the grievances these previous supporters have with Obama are major layoffs, increases in deficit spending and home foreclosures.
“I’ve seen his definition of hope and change, it’s not the hope and change I want. It’s not the hope and change I thought I was going to get. I don’t feel that I’ve helped my grandchildren by voting for President Obama, and I regret that,” says Richard, one of the previous Obama supporters.
“I think he’s a great person. I don’t feel he is the right leader for our country, though,” says Maria, another previous Obama supporter.
All three have different reasons, but all say that the President has not earned reelection.
“I still believe in hope and change, I just don’t think Obama’s the way to go for that,” says Robin.
