Super PACs are the kibitzers of political campaigns. They circle behind the players and throw their two (million) cents in, but never have to worry about losing the game.
Enter Crossroads GPS and Priorities USA, which are running new TV spots attacking Barack Obama and the GOP, respectively.
Crossroads GPS ad (via MSNBC’s First Read) that cleverly uses Bill Clinton to attack Obama’s jobs bill:
Priorities USA ad that boringly uses newspaper clippings to 1) attack GOP efforts to cut Pell grants and 2) support Obama’s effort to reduce the cost of student loans and allow graduates to consolidate debt at lower interest rates:
Your yawn goes here.
And that’s why the GOP is totally winning the Super PAC Smackdown.
