Restore Our Future: Obama Policies Have Failed (Watch Video)

Conservative super PAC Restore Our Future released a new ad today attacking President Obama’s record of “failed policies.”

The ad, titled “Another Month,” is airing in 11 states including Pennsylvania. The buy is said to be worth $10.48 million.

The ad begins by knocking Obama for the unemployment rate rising up to 8.3 percent. The ad then asks, “If you had President Obama’s record, what would you do?”

The ad says Obama has reacted inappropriately to problems he's faced by joking or insinuating that everything is fine.

Following this, the ad plays three clips of Obama, aimed to show that he is out of touch and that his policies have failed.

“If you had President Obama’s record, what would you do? Would you Joke? [President Obama: ‘Shovel ready was not as…shovel ready as we expected.’] Deny reality? [President Obama: ‘We tried our plan and it worked.’] Even insist? [President Obama: ‘The private sector is doing fine.’] Or do what Obama’s allies are doing now. Launch ‘shameful,’ ‘dishonest’ attacks. With no record to run on, it’s the only strategy Obama has left.”

Obama spokesperson Danny Kanner said in a press release that Romney and his allies are delusional to the progress that has been made.

“Mitt Romney and his allies claim to want a ‘substantive debate,’ but their newest ad – like those being run by Romney’s own campaign – distorts the truth and denies reality. Under President Obama’s leadership, the economy has gone from losing 750,000 jobs a month to adding 4.5 million private sector jobs over the last 29 months, and American manufacturers are adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s,” said Kanner.

“Now, Romney-Ryan would take us back by raising taxes on middle class families and ending Medicare as we know it to pay for massive tax cuts for multi-millionaires like Mitt Romney. That’s the same top-down economic scheme that crashed our economy and devastated the middle class in the first place – and one that deserves an honest, substantive debate.”

The ad is set to begin airing on Tuesday, and run until Aug. 21.

  1. @LycoGirl Who in the House said that the first priority was to defeat Obama?

    Hint for political newbies: Senators are not in the House, and Mitch McConnell is a Senator.

  2. Mary, I would ask you the same questions. Do you understand that it is the legislative body that is responsible for writing legislature, and that every job-creating bill (except for one, they were pressured into by vets) Obama has suggested has been ignored by the House (the same people who promised their first priority was to defeat this president)? If you seriously think the president of the United States hasn’t been taking “this seriously enough,” I think you should put down the Kool-Aid and turn off Fox.

  3. David- it is calling for substantive debate, not inaccurate name calling and belittling. Can you discuss the point of the ad? Namely that Obama doesn’t seem to take any of this seriously enough? This isn’t a job in late night tv. There is a bit of gravitas expected.

  4. This PAC should be called: Restore Our Past (undo civil rights, women barefoot & pregnant & in the kitchen, creationism, robber barons)

  5. The oath of a Congressman:
    “I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

    There is nothing in there about being obligated to pass Obama’s wasteful, budget-busting, crony capitalist agenda.

  6. oh, you mean the month that the House is in recess again??is passing no jobs-building legislation in???what the hell is a president supposed to do when the legislature is more interested in their political cshemes than in upholding their oaths of office?
