Let The $4 Billion Rumpus Begin! (Solyndra Redux Edition)

Last December Crossroads GPS , the front group for former House of Bush consigliere and current GOP gunsel Karl Rove, ran a TV spot bashing Barack Obama for funding the star-cursed energy company Solyndra, which got half-a-billion dollars from the federal government when it was clearly going down the hopper.

Now Crossroads GPS is back to beat the dead horse. From Politico’s Playbook:

FIRST LOOK: “Crossroads GPS today launched a new spot, ‘Every Level,’ that will air on national cable in a one week buy totaling $500,000. It is the second Crossroads TV spot on the Solyndra scandal. In an accompanying strategy memo, Crossroads GPS president Steven Law says Solyndra encapsulates … ‘an economic ecosystem where participants are rewarded not for what they know, but for who they know; a lucrative spoils system.”YouTube http://bit.ly/zjdF6N … 2-page strategy memo http://bit.ly/wYg5g7

The spot:


The hardworking staff hasn’t read the 2-page strategy memo, but we’re guessing it boils down to this:

Typical Washington (blah blah blah) line up for handouts (blah blah blah) Solyndra (blah blah blah) bankrupt (blah blah blah) FBI investigates (blah blah blah) more red ink

Blah blah blah.

Except for this, also from Politico’s Playbook:

AP’s Jack Gillum: “American Crossroads, the group backed by former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove, raised more than $51 million along with its nonprofit arm [Crossroads GPS] last year.”

That’s a lot of blah blah blah. With plenty more to come.

  1. New 538 column – Did Romney’s Ad Advantage Help Him?

    There’s SO much ad money this cycle, I’m wondering if it’ll just get to the point where there’s backlash, and ads start having a negative effect.

  2. If you only watch hockey and “Pawn Stars”…
