Crossroads GPS launches Spanish TV ad in Nevada to counter Obama Visit

Ad will counter Obama’s appearance in Nevada on Spanish televisionWASHINGTON – Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) today announced the launch of a Spanish ad, “Despertarse,” to counter President Obama’s visit to the Silver State to sell his latest stimulus package. The ad will air on Spanish-language broadcast television stations in the Las Vegas market.

The 60 second ad will run all day Monday and Tuesday, for a total of $25,000. The ad, which previously ran in Nevada and other states during the debt-limit debate, can be viewed here.

“President Obama’s latest stimulus has faced bipartisan opposition because it is based on the same principles as the failed 2009 stimulus, which wasted $830 billion without bringing the unemployment rate down,” said Crossroads GPS communications director Jonathan Collegio. “Nevada unemployment is sky high while housing has hit rock bottom, and the president’s latest Band-Aid is too little, too late.”

The Washington, DC publication National Journal today said this about the President’s housing policy in its daily Need to Know Memo:

“Obama’s housing policy has been extremely ineffective so far at stopping the slide in a market that remains the economy’s No. 1 sore spot.”

Crossroads GPS is a policy and grassroots advocacy organization that is committed to educating, equipping and mobilizing millions of American citizens to take action on the critical economic and legislative issues that will shape our nation’s future in the years ahead.
