Multi-millionaire political operative Karl Rove and his Crossroads SuperPAC are launching a $25 million ad campaign blitz in ten battleground states on Thursday. The ads – which will air in key states like Florida, Michigan, and Ohio – hammer the President on his handling of the economy – despite the fact that President Obama has created more than 4 million private sector jobs over the course of 26 straight months – and recouped all the private sectors jobs wiped out in the first few months of his administration by the Bush Great Recession.
But with an endless supply of corporate and billionaire cash – Karl Rove plans to distort the truth in his latest spending assault. And others working on behalf of Mitt Romney’s and the Koch brothers’ SuperPACs are also pledging hundreds of millions of dollars to negative and misleading ads. Thanks to Citizens United – millionaires and billionaires like Rove, the Kochs, and Romney can now speak much louder than average voters. The biggest question in the mind of many Americans as we approach this November is, quite simply, "Will American democracy survive this onslaught of corrupt corporate, foreign, and billionaire cash?"
