Senator McConnell really brought down the thunder in this campaign ad criticizing Obama – the Divider in Chief. The noted First Amendment hawk released the video ahead of the SOTU to slam the president for being a divider not a uniter. It was produced by filmmaker Lucas Baiano, and criticizes Obama on unemployment, health care, the IRS scandal and coal.
I like it even more than the also excellent “Abuse of Power” video the Cruz campaign put out Tuesday. Maybe because the Minority Leader hit on a theme that really strikes a chord with me. As I’ve said on a number of occasions – We’ve never had a such a divisive president before, nor one so obviously full of contempt for half of America – the portion that doesn’t vote for big government. It’s horrifying, really.
“The president’s job is to unite the country, not divide,” McConnell says in the video. “His job is to bridge differences, not not aggravate them. To encourage success, not condemn it.”
“The president seems to have forgotten that he was elected to lead all Americans,” McConnell says.
