Anti-Obama group to make big YouTube splash Thursday

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Americans for Prosperity, the conservative group backed by Kansas billionaires Charles and David Koch plans to “essentially own the front page of YouTube” on Thursday, when Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney officially accepts the nomination in Tampa, according to Levi Russell the groups director of public affairs.

The group is buying the large banner space at the top of YouTube’s main page. “We’ll be running a poll on how visitors feel about President Obama and they’ll have the ability to cycle through 3 of our most recent national TV spots,” Russell said.

Two of the ads feature testimonials from people who supported President Obama in 2008 but are now having voter remorse.

“He inherited a bad situation but he made it worse,” a voter says. “ I don’t feel he is the right leader for our country…” another adds.

The third ad will focus on what the group says are “Obama’s failed promises to reign in federal spending.”

The You Tube banner will also direct visitors to a special website where they can find more information on Americans for Prosperity.

The cost for this big splash is estimated at five hundred thousand dollars per day.

        lol first, what corruption? the GOP in Congress holding up economics bills because they arent getting their way, and now are just doing it to make it seem like nothing is being done?? Or the constant lies coming from the GOP and the Romney/Ryan ticket? Heres a free one for you so you can be informed: Ryan co sponsored legislation with Akin about "forcible rape". Romney has close ties to the Dr Akin uses as his source, Dr james Willke. So much so, that he was his top family issues adviser in 08! Ryans top staff member was the Bush White House spokesman for the war. (how many lies did he tell...)Romney has hired Bush's advisers! (because they did so well with jr didnt they?). Under Romney, MA was 47th in job creation! And now he is telling reporters they can only get interviews if they stay away from hot topics like Akin...a page right from Bush. Fact check me, im not wrong.

        Howard you are a simpleton...

        Why on earth would any sane American vote for
        – someone who doesn't believe the government should be helping ordinary people
        – someone whose business experience was running businesses into the ground for the profit of the few
        – someone who holds a Swiss bank account and holdings in the Cayman Islands
        – someone who won't release his financial records
        – someone who really does hold true to the 'etch-a-sketch' characterization?
        If you decide to answer that question, I want to hear good reasons to vote for Romney. NOT reasons why you hate Obama.

        This reply is to everyone. I feel that the only way Obama won the last election is because all of the black people wanting there own kind in the seat for president and all of the people that weren't born a actual USA citizen voted for him because Obama would open all the flood gate and just let anyone in the USA. He is a disgrace to what our USA was founded on. Wanting to take God out of everything! All of the people who wrote the Constitution are probably rolling over in their graves right now. I believe Obama is the Anti-Christ. We are living in the end times, so you better get ready for it. Obama sucks as a President. We are in for a long fight and if we want to win, then we all need to pull together and pray to God to help our country and keep us safe from the enemies, and that does include Obama.

      Ah yes! Racism in full gear. Its good to see that the Crouch brothers...oops the the Koch brothers (excuse the mix up as its understandable as they parade around relieving the other), the unabashed ambassadors for I have money to waste my unfortunately impoverished fellow Americans. Its shame when people who have been graced with so much have so little to offer society but self examples of why wealth corrupts. They truly are a family that needs each other because does not need them nor their money. Libertarians, I think not. Third Reichians, yes they are.

I can't believe people are actually considering Romney-Ryan...do you actually know what they will turn the country into? A fend-for-yourself, vulture society...good luck with that if it's what you want! Sure, we're in tough times...do some research and see how much worse it could have been...then you'll be promoting Obama instead of talking out of your a*s

    Obama can't win on policy, that's for sure. Why not let people say what they think? Afterall Obama isn't a king even though lefties think he is.

    August 24, 2012 at 1:43 pm |
    • Mario

      What? Obama has the better policy for the future of America HANDS DOWN. A significant portion of nonpartisan economic, political, financial, etc experts are in agreement on that! Romney will gut the whole system and let everybody fend for themselves...it has been mathematically shown that this is NOT the best strategy for everybody in the group – Game Theory people! The Romney version is only good for those who already can fend for themselves, i.e., the people like him. If you want George Bush on steroids, vote Romney and watch the world burn to shreds! (and don't think you'll have healthcare if you get hurt in the process either!)

That is why we have a 16 Trillion Dollar Federal Debt, soon to be 17 Trillion, 8 to 16 Percent Unemployment, 47 Million on food stamps, 100 million living off some government program, millions of morgages under water.

      In 2008 ... and for the years that followed, obama enjoyed the luxury of an extremely biased mainstream media, who pitched him ... protected him ... defended him ... and refused to vet him. In addition, in and effort to be 'politically correct', and avoid countless baseless accusations of 'racism', obama's opposition responded with their hands tied behind their backs. Today, however, the disastrous results of obama's failed policies are hurting millions of Americans ... and, in addition, his opposition has woken up, and is unafraid to tell the truth about this phony sacred cow. That's why movies, like 2016 Obama's Ameirca ... and The Hope And The Change are coming out. Everybody, except die hard obama stooges are finally realizing what a horrible failure he is ... and, how he has nearly destroyed America. American is much, much more important than obama ... and, in order to save America ... obama must go !!!

Scary. How many other votes across the country did they mess with? Don't try and call me an Obamabot, either– I may vote for him this time around, but I did not in 2008 (only voted for one Democrat for President since 1984). Dismissive name-calling is done by those who have no argument, and I'm sure you have one since you claim to know more than others.

        How can you call Obama a Liar when Romney is running against him? Have you not seen how Romney every year says something different about the same issue?

        In the end of the day, I do not care what anyone says. Romney is not sincere. He is hiding something.
        In the end of the day, if there was nothing bad, or embarrassing, or non-classy, or non criminal about his taxes he would have not only shown them, but mailed it to everyone's house in united states with a 5 dollar bill attached to it. We humans do not hide accomplishments do we? We humans do not hide achievements do we? But what do we hide? or not like to show?
        This is about human instinct, and my gut says, you eat shitt.
        sorry, let me try again,
        This is about human instinct, and my gut says, Romney is guilty.

    Good luck with that. Youtube is watched mostly by younger people. Younger people support Obama by more than 70%. Younger people support gay marriage and believe we should help the poor. They think that the GOP is full of angry old white men who don't understand them. Most of them will never click on that banner. The angry old white folks who do support the GOP have telegraphs in their homes, not computers.

        The whole birthing issue is point, since his mother was a US citizen when he was born. Now, the point people say what if he wasn't born in US soil at his birth. Well, since his mom was a US citizen, the "natural born" title extends to newborns even when born abroad. He could be born in Norway, and still be considered natural born US citizen. Thus, he would not have to be naturalized into a US citizens since he is considered a natural born.

    You leftylibdems would spit on your mothers if they were Republicans. Hate success? Hate that others have more than you? Didn't get your way on the playground and not as an adult either so you whine and piss and moan? The reality is people with money may spend it any way they like and there's nothing you can do about it except, of course, to piss, moan, and whine, which y'all do en masse relentlessly. Soon enough, President Romney will restore America to greatness, the unemployed will have jobs, and you can go back to fuming and farting your lives away.

    the gop is running away from atkin is it because of what he said or is it because he put aboration in the news which lead to one of the planks in the republican platform? its the republican way to keep secrets. they have got their base all worked up about the budget! you could balance the budget by the end of today and it would not fix the unempolyment problem we have! we have the same problem that we had in 1929 were demand for goods and services were very low which caused the crash and high unemployment. thats the number one problem we have with our economy now! the repububs are giving top billing to the budget as the number one problem. is it that they want to make it the number one problem so they can cut social programs that don't fit their ideology ? you repubs are so easy to pull a shell game on because you fall for it hook line and sinker. does the budget need to be fixed? yes! is it the number one most important issue ? hell no!

        The republicans do want want the middle class to get better its interesting to think about.
        If there was a bill that the rich class stayed the same as it is but it was better for the middle class, they would block it.
        If there was a bill that it made the rich better but it did not change anything in the middle class, they would allow it.
        If there was a bill that made both class better the same way, they would block it.

        Bottom line is, ANYTHING for the poor or middle the republicans do not want. Even if it helps the rich, they just do not like to have a better middle class. They like to succeed alone.

      Even with your analysis of "30%", to me that is a lot better than Romney being president and destroying the "30%" progress Obama made back to probably "30%" worse than when Obama was elected president.

      And maybe if the Democrats takes over congress once again, we can say:

    here is another example of how repubs running for office or in office invent a problem, find someone to blame for the problem! than use the problem to get what they want for the fat cats with their followers backing them up. the tar sands will help us with the PROBLEM we have with oil supplies. part of fixing the PROBLEM is getting Obama out of the white house because he is holding up the fix for the PROBLEM. if the fat cats were going to keep this oil in this country would it not make sense to build a new refinery in north dakota were new oil has been discovered? this tar sand oil has some bad chemicals added to it so it can be pumped. to remove the chemicals is a higher refining cost! china wants this oil from canada and they have no intentions of taking the chemicals out they are just going to burn it as is because their peoples health does not matter to them. the reason the fat cats want this oil to go to the coast is because they are than going to sell it to china! get it yet repubs! your being used again! just like the prolifer voters are being used! another example coming next!

    August 25, 2012 at 1:28 am |
  33. david

    next example. invent the big PROBLEM the federal budget. now invent the cause of the big PROBLEM. invent the fix for the big PROBLEM which is get Obama out of the white house, are you following on this three steps solution. if you balanced the budget by sun set tomarrow it would not drive down unemployment. it would not creat onr job in fact it would make more people unemployed! is the biggest problem we have right now the budget? no! what we have as a number one problem is the same problem we had in the crash of 1929. the problem was low demand for goods and services that caused the crash and the following unemployment problem. is the repubs fixing of the budget to help the economy or is it a nice way to cut all sicial programs that don't fit their ideology more like the reason! this is number 2 example of how voters are being used. example 3 to follow!

"a women can't get pregnant if she is raped". putting a plank in your parties platform that give no exceptions for aboration. solution, stop talking about it because we are loosing votes which is more important to us than babies! good night everyone

    Why does Romney(or the President) keep saying that he will create jobs. Only one form of government actually creates jobs – Socialist. The government can't even influence the economy that much. Jobs are created by the private sector in a free market economy. As long as US corporations keep 3 trillion dollars cash overseas, the economy is not going anywhere.

    He deserves what he will get, losing this race, as he continues to cave in to extremism and Hate.

      Third ... talk about lying down with low life people ... obama supporters consist of occupiers ... free loaders ... the half of America who pay NO taxes ... racists ... sexual diviates ... and illegals ... just to mention a few.
      Fourth ... Obama chose the corrupt Eric Holder ... Biden the Baffoon ... and supports idiots, like Pelosi ... and, he has nearly destroyed the American economy.

    4 Simple Questions
    1. Back in 1961 people of color were called 'Negroes.' So how can the
    Obama 'birth certificate' state he is 'African-American' when the term wasn't even used at that time?

    2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists
    Obama's birth as August 4, 1961. It indicates that Barack Hussein
    Obama was his father. No big deal, right? At the time of Obama's birth,
    it also shows that his father is aged
    25 years old, and that Obama's father was born in " Kenya ,
    East Africa ". This wouldn't seem like anything of concern, except the
    fact that Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama's birth, and 27 years after his father's birth.

    How could Obama's father have been born in a country that did not yet
    exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as the " British East Africa Protectorate".
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya_

    3. On the birth certificate released by the White House, the
    listed place of birth is "Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological
    Hospital". This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961
    were called "KauiKeolani Children's Hospital" and "Kapi'olani Maternity
    Home", respectively. The name did not change to Kapi'olani Maternity &
    Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged.

    How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate
    dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978?
    _http://www.kapiolani.org/women-and-children/about-us/default.aspx_

    4. Why hasn't this been discussed in the major media?
    Perhaps a clue comes from Obama’s book. He
    states how proud he is of his father fighting in WW II. I’m not a math
    genius, so I may need some help from you. Barack Obama’s “birth
    certificate” says his father
    was 25 years old in 1961 when he was born. That should have put his father’s date of birth
    approximately 1936. WW II
    was basically between 1939 and 1945... Just how many 3 year olds fight
    in wars? Even in the later stages of WW II his father wouldn’t have
    been more than 9. Does that mean that Mr. Obama is a liar, or simply
    chooses to alter the facts to satisfy his imagination or political
    purposes.

    Same thing happened when Bush was president before the second election, this nonsense does not work, it only makes the people that are voting for Obama REALLY vote for Obama. What makes a difference is someone that is not honest, someone that hides things, someone who is not sincere and fully open to America, which is Romney. As a president, you should have NOTHING TO HIDE. NOTHING AT ALL AND EVERYTHING SHOULD BE SHOWN IF ASKED. Did not Obama show everything people asked for? Like his birth certificate, MORE THAN ONCE? Obama had to show proof of his whole family tree and that he had not much connection to his brother or even his dad and with them being a muslim and all that stuff. Come on now, seriously?

    Lets be real here and let's answer these 2 questions.
    1) Is there a chance of Obama losing democratic votes because of these ads?
    2) Is there a chance of Romney losing republican votes for not wanting to show his taxes?

    Obama will win not because he is the best president, but because Romney is the worst pick, and I am telling you from that bottom of my heart that Romney is hiding someone. Something is just fishy. I do not believe in a person that is not sincere and not all open and truthful when running to be the next president of the United States.

        Why are Obama's college's records sealed? Give me a break! When Obama runs ads saying Romney is a felon and he was responsible for someones death at Bain, and the lady had her own insurance.Plus, both ads were rated as false. Obama's campaign isn't nothing but pure down and dirty. He has nothing to run on, and he does the smear and fear campaign By the way why isn't Obama discussing what he is going to do in his next term. To be honest, I once really liked Obama, but now he is running on nothing but distortions and distractions, hoping people will not notice what a lousy economy we have.

The Liberal's have been running the Country for at least the last 75 Years. Now for my European Friend. Too many of you think the Liberal's and Democrats are better for the World. You better look again because when Uncle Sam get's a cold, you get Phenuomoa. Too many people today think they can live off the Government. But We are going Bankrupt. But I give you California. A real Bastion of Sucess! Good luck.

    When individuals call other people "conservatives" or "liberals", this actually show how simple-minded they are, and the narrow view of the world they live in (shown in many comments, debates, and articles). They have to live in a simple world with the mentality of "my team is always right, and everyone else is wrong." Of course, the world is not that simple, we live in a world of diversity and differences. Where we should learn from each others mistakes and achievement no matter what "group" they are in. Ideals are something that should be something people work towards, but ideals should not be an excuse to warp and twist facts and reality. Ideals can make people passionate, but too much passion can make people irrational and illogical.
    Tax cuts for super wealthy does not help the whole. There's a reason why middle and lower class America is just barely surviving, instead of thriving. They spend most of their income to just get by.
    Does that mean give a free ride for middle and lower America? No, it means stop putting laws into effect that screws everyone else over to protect people's excessive greed. Take out laws that only promote excessive greed, and put hurdles for certain classes that they cannot cross. Meaning everyone needs to contribute, but screwing a "class" to protect ones wealth.
    Why am I bringing up greed? Well, certain individuals and corporations have "contributed", "gifted", "lobbied", or essentially bribed politicians to keep this system promoting excessive greed. Politicians are looking out for their own agendas, and don't care what you need unless they need your vote.
    Here's my view on the candidate Mitt Romney. It doesn't matter what party he's with, he comes off as a perpetual liar, and seems like an individual who would justify all his wrong doings. Romney may come off as charming/charismatic person, and quickly changes to fit in favor of the current issue, but when he loses control of situation he puts his fake smile and laugh to hide his intent and deflect. The qualities of narcissistic/psychopathic person are qualities that are good who wants to make money for only himself or his investor, but bad for everyone else and the country. Unless you made a huge contribution to his campaign, is in the top income percentage, his benefactors, or his close circle, Mitt Romney does not care about any of you..
    You all want someone that knows money and the economy? Look at Warren Buffet. Warren Buffet is a true business entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist. Considered one of the wealthiest people in the world, and what was his opinion on the Bush Tax Cut? Let the tax cut expire he said. The same tax cut that Mitt Romney wants to wants to broaden, which means more higher income bracket people will get tax cuts, while middle class is there to carry more of the burden. He stated that the idea that the wealth of rich people will trickle down into the economy into the pockets of everyone else DOES NOT WORK.
    If it was Ron Paul as candidate, Ron Paul would of had my vote, but voting for Mitt Romney is like saying that America stands for greed, the death of dreams, and ignorance. America as always should be about freedom, liberty, the ability to achieve your dreams through hard work, pursuit of knowledge, and capitalism. With all these things, we must always exercise great responsibility and objectivity.
    Oh, just so everyone knows. People working in the campaigns does hire people to go the these news articles to basically troll normal folk and throw out very misleading information.
