This new American Crossroads ad is sure to make liberal heads explode:
Karl Rove’s American Crossroads SuperPAC, which has bought up loads of TV time in Florida, airs virtually every conservative grievance with President Obama’s foreign policy in this new ad: Skipped intelligence briefings and playing 100 rounds of golf; campaign fundraisers after an ambassador is murdered in Libya; cold relations with Israel’s conservative leader amid nuclear-arms tensions with Iran; and “celebrity” ties to David Letterman, Beyonce and Jay-Z.
The researchers at the Republican National Committee notice this alarming fact in President Obama’s sequestration plan:

White House Spokesman Jay Carney told reporters today that the Middle East protests were in response to a video.
“These protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region… The unrest we’ve seen in the region has been in reaction to a video.”
The Muslim protests were planned back in August – before the film was ever released.
The protest in Cairo was organized by the terror group, Jamaa Islamiya.
USA Today reported:
The protest was planned by Salafists well before news circulated of an objectionable video ridiculing Islam’s prophet, Mohammed, said Eric Trager, an expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
The protest outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo was announced Aug. 30 by Jamaa Islamiya, a State Department-designated terrorist group, to protest the ongoing imprisonment of its spiritual leader, Sheikh Omar abdel Rahman. He is serving a life sentence in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
