    Classic example of The Empty Chair!!

    • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

      Yeah. “Mr. President….you’re fired!”

      • Rightstuff1

        This is a really great !!! This disaster has got to be fired!!!

  • I’m sure that if the American embassy in Cairo were located near a golf course, Obama would pay more attention to it.

    • Mythslayer

      Nah, too dusty.

  • Awesome!!

  • CaseyGeorge

    This one needs to run on TV

  • I love it. It is good for sure. Tells what is more important to him. It sure is not America

  • keninil

    Devastatingly to the point !!


    Yes, that ad says so much. Though, I would be thrilled if Barry resigned tonight; followed by Biden. I’m cool with Boehner as prez until January.

  • p m

    Excellent. There’s plenty more where that came from – let’s have more.


    …he plays GOLF like he does his job as President of the U.S.A. CRAPPY !”


  • Taurnil Oronar

    Its past time for him to show up for work but its not past the time to impeach him for failure to uphold his Constitutional duty to protect us from foreign enemies.

    • Orangeone

      Crickets from Boehner again. How much more has to happen before he ignores the racism cries and does his job as Speaker of the House? Impeach now. As for the Muslims in the US, intern and return to sender and do it now. Do thousands more innocent Americans have to die at the hand of Muslims for this country to wake up?

      • keyesforpres

        I agree, send them all back where they came from. If they were born here and converted…still send them back. They don’t believe in country anyway.

  • KateNE

    Ouch. I love it!

  • poljunkie

    I saw this on Bret Baiers show on Fox.

    The panel reviewed it. The liberal on the panel, said it was horrible. She said it brought back how awful Mitt Romney responded to the crisis, and shouldnt be doing this or that. WHAT?
    Charles, in a low tone, said something like, Gov Romney isnt the President ( who by the way didnt respond in the correct manner.)

    I just couldnt believe how distorted her perspective was on the topic.

    • poljunkie

      PS we both thought the ad was kicka$$!!!!!

    • Did anyone set her straight?

      • poljunkie

        Charles leaned over and said something like Obama’s the President not Romney. AND then Steven Hayes said a fair piece in defense of Romney.
        But like I said we were astonished by what she said.

        • conservative58

          “But like I said we were astonished by what she said.”

          Never underestimate the crudeness of a liberal.

  • PJRodman

    Holy cow. Whoop…there it is.

  • How about the photo op next to the flag draped coffin…….I think that was the worst thing to do. He should have addressed this strongly when it happened and stayed on point until the overseas issues were resolved instead of his celeb fundraising. Sick that he is trying to buy back some of the poor leadership optics by exploiting the dead bodies.

    • p m

      He was too busy tweeting about what a great buy his campaign sweat shirts are, and just in time for winter too…while awaiting the caskets.

      • I heard about several out of place tweets during this ordeal. The excuse is that his campaign sends out his tweets. Oh, okay, nothing to see here. Would that excuse ever fly with anyone else?

        • p m

          Nope – and that’s no excuse, either. Just means his campaign morons are…MORONS!!

  • It’s 3am, January 2013, the phone is ringing, and thank GOD Mitt Romney is there to answer it!

  • Joe

    Think about this :

    If this happened on Bushs’ Watch – AND

    GW went to a Texas Rangers Baseball game

    What would the LSM be saying ?

    ZERO has NO SOUL!

  • Now that is a hard hitting and honest ad…exposes the true Obama….love the Letterman and golf references….world in crisis and the Incredible Shrinking President is nowhere to be found! I hope this goes on TV!


  • nc

    Cuts like a knife with truth. Run it!

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    CBS/AP) NEW YORK – Credit rating agency Egan-Jones is downgrading its rating on U.S. debt to AA- from AA, citing Federal Reserve plans to try to stimulate the economy.

    The firm said the Fed’s plans to buy mortgage bonds will likely hurt the economy more than help it. Egan-Jones said the plan will reduce the value of the dollar and raise the price of oil and other commodities, hurting businesses and consumers.

    our credit rating is lowering some more. people still wanting to vote for barry??

    he has no priorities except campaigning imo

  • Orangeone

    OMG this is the most powerful ad to date. I have been talking with people and they believe the MSM that the video is the cause, we should embrace Islam and that the Ambassador was being carried to the hospital. I barely held my temper back. These are idiots who will re-elect O’Bambi.

  • love, love, love it!!!! need more like this now. mitt needs to learn how to be sarcastic with a smile before the debates.

  • Mythslayer

    Good use of The Blaze Dallas oval office. They left Churchill’s bust in the photo, do you think it was on purpose. (snicker)

  • SaraPFan

    3am call. I love this video.

  • Sharing… Thx

  • love, love, love it!!!! need more like this now and constant. mitt needs to learn how to be sarcastic and keep smiling before the debates! would love to see prez loose his cool in front of camera. he will if pushed hard enough. he don’t like to answer to anyone or explain himself. he’s a pathetic excuse as a president and an american!

    • rightathome2

      Carolyn you are so right that Romeny needs to be sarcastic (sp?) on Obama like the libbers are wtih him. Put him on the defense so he shows his true colors. Somebody get that idea to the R/R campaign and cut him down to size that arogent bs artist.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Very precise and to the point. We have a president that isn’t all that interested in fulfilling his Constitutional duties. He’d rather play golf or attend endless fund-raisers or appear on television talk shows. He’s a hollow man that makes false promises and doesn’t care all that much for America. Time for a change at the White House!!!!

  • Galatiansch2vs20

    Obama continues to advertise here in east Tennessee, but I see no Romney/Ryan ads. Since Romney’s running to be president of the entire United States, it would be nice to not have ads from only one side here- and not because I like Romney, though I plan to vote Romney/Ryan, but because I feel like he is not doing much to energize people here to get out and vote for him. Al Gore came out of this state. There are democrats here who have been supportive of Obama. Don’t forget doing some advertising in the states that aren’t considered swing states, Romney and Ryan!

    • Mythslayer

      Maybe Romney and Ryan feel Tennesseans are too smart to vote for little “O”.

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        Evidently Obama doesn’t think so- he’s spending significant money on tv ads here.

      • conservative58

        Unfortunately, you would be surprised at how many libs there are here in Tennessee.

    • Much the same here in Massachusetts. I’m seeing some Romney ads, but outnumbered by 10 to 1 by NObama ones. I’ve seen far more Scott Brown ads then I’ve seen Romney ads.

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        Where’s Obama’s money coming from that he’s able to outspend by that much even though it seems like I’ve heard reported Romney had raised more money of late than Obama?

  • AbdulBX

    Activist judge overturns Wisconsin collective bargaining law?

    Good for Romney/Ryan in Wisconsin.

  • Pepper Anderson

    Nothing works better than the truth. I wish they could put this on a constant loop.

    • There have been so many “failures” in this administration, that they wouldn’t need to put anything in a loop. You could fill a half-hour spot with different examples of how Obama has flubbed or acted against America’s best interests.

  • AbdulBX

    Will the ad be on TV?

  • poljunkie

    I love the phone ringing at the end. Thats priceless.

  • My ad would be “Hillary Clinton questioned if Barack Obama could handle the 3:00 am call.” all the while you have the intro to the Rockford files TV show rolling… the ringing phone in the room and the answering machine picks up the call and its Barack saying… Hey this is Barack – I’m out with Jay Z and Beyonce now then I’m going to play some golf and then a little sex in the city with Jessica Parker and Anna Winturp… Sorry I’m not here but I really do care about you send me some money via Twitter would you? …

    It looks like you have your answer about the 3:00 am call, who knew barack wouldn’t pick up the phone.

    • poljunkie

      Not to mention sending out a twitter thing today that new fall sweatshirts were onsale. He did that while at the Memorial Ceremony. Breitbart had the story.

      This guy is a tosser.

  • CalCoolidge

    It’s 3:00 AM and the phone rang. Obama was out partying with Jay-Z.

  • kamiller42

    The phone ringing at the end because no one is answering it is a very nice touch.

  • Susanna958

    I think they used Glenn Becks Oval office for the ad because the bust of Churchill is on the table.

  • Nukeman60

    It’s 3:00 am and the phone in the Oval Office is ringing. Obama comes running in, still dressed in his sweats from a late night pickup basketball game after the party with Beyonce, picks up the phone and answers, “Barack Obama, Ruler of all the free world. Who’s calling, please?

    The voice at the other end of the line says, “Could I speak to whoever is in charge? We have a crisis over here in the Mid East.

    Barry pauses for a second, looks around the room, and responds, “Just one moment. I’ll get Valerie. That’s above my pay grade.

    Fade to black.

  • joe

    I wonder if thats Becks Set of the Oval being that Winston Churchills bust is on the table ?

  • Sinsonta

    It is time to send Obama back to Chicago!

  • hbnolikeee

    Does anyone doubt if we left Libya alone that the Americans that were killed would still be alive?

    • RonPaulSupporter2

      Excellent point. I don’t doubt it. That same sentiment could be said for a lot of the United States foreign policy positions.

      All the best to you.


    Now that is a devastaing ad. I have been begging everybody to do these in my emails to everyone I could send them to.

    I know we had to wait until he was nominated to spend newer money, but the CLINT thing, got us going right, don’t you think?

    There is about 10 of these ADS hitting OBOZO I could write…today….and I have sent them in…

    I begged Glenn Beck to do some mocking of the PRESZI, he just let me down big time and only interesed in BS of A crappy show.

    I gave up on him when he got lost in the PROGRESSIVE thing with NEWT, and now he hates CLINT thing, when most of us loved it.

    I think GLENN only likes what GLENN likes, and it makes him the most money.

    Keep it up ROVE, I have many problems with you, but sometimes your not too bad and hit the mark.

    Help get Mitt elected, and we will call it even and start anew.

    IS Mitt another REAGAN, I don’t know, he shows flashes, let find out what what he’s GOT.

    This OBUMMER guy, even when he does something right, like giving order to take out OSAMA, he has SCREWED that up to where the muslims think HE DID IT BY HIMSELF.

    LET em have him (in the media, not in person), and leave our Ambassadors and Navy Seals alone.

    HILLARY, can I call you Hill of beans ?? You are so done.

    DONE, SO DONE !!!!

    Playing CYA this week is WORST thing (along with Major networks covering O and Hillary) I have ever seen, and OBOZO going on trips campaigning whiile snubbing BEBE of Israel, how DUMB and arrogant is that?

    “WE got to let them GO” “Clint”

    • actionsspeaklouder

      Good for you! Everything you say is true. Great job!

  • hongryhawg

    This is his work. I hope no thinks the snub to Bibi and ignoring the warnings of the Embassy attacks are a result of laziness. Those of you who think obama makes these choices are so in the dark. He is told what to do. He is the pawn of his handlers. His ease in ignoring his responsibilities is his background. This entire scenario is orchestrated. Then why would anyone vote for him? Answer; his supporters don’t even know where the Middle East is. His supporters know nothing but the color of his skin and his socialist agenda. His supporters are NOT supporters of America.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Great ad.

  • Phone rings and rings … voice mail picks up (sounds like Obama’s voice): I am the President. My schedule is, uh, too full to take your call but, uh, leave a message and someone will, uh, return your call. If you are a golf course confirming my tee time, press 1. I will be right on time. If you are from my own administration, press 2. Valerie will uh, call you back. If you are a celebrity, hang up. I am already trying to call you back. If you are BeBe, press 86 (call disconnects).

  • conservocop

    What a disingenuous mess you reality show people and empty-headed celebutards have foisted upon us !!!!!! I hope some of you have come to your senses, because the country cannot withstand another 4 years of this imposter !!!

  • PFFV

    More Golf Than any other sitting President? Shows up to 10% of his intelligence briefings? Obama’s apology tour failed miserably as the Middle East is on fire with Hatred for The USA, Israel and the Western World. No time for The President of Israel but wants to meet with the Muslim Brotherhood anytime they can stop by the Whitehouse? QE3 printing money out of thin air to help Obama get elected? Artificially pumping money into the stock market so ignorant fools re-elect Obummer? = Democrat-Plantation


    Yes, little 0-star….time to work and stop pretending to be an adored rockstar. He is a horrible excuse for a president. He has got to go. The world is on fire. I detest that worthless piece of dung,

    • actionsspeaklouder


  • Silly ads like this don’t sway anyone.

    • RosiesSeeingRed

      Somewhat true. The majority of the country has already made up its mind to vote him out based on his record. We don’t need these ads to know he sucks.

  • wodiej

    I just hope that voters act like they give a damn this election cycle and vote obama out.

    • NCHokie02


  • LiberalBoycotter

    Good ad, forgot to mention the numerous vacations he and Moochella have taken on the tax payer dime…

  • NCHokie02


  • Great truths behind this add, and spot on, on every point.

  • Why should Obama work, he never has done anything positive for this country. He’s been in campaign mode ever since day one in the White House. Who needs 4 more years of his misery.

  • sue-marie

    Wonderful….now let’s show this in all 57 states …… 🙂 heeheehee

  • The phone ringing in the empty office at the end was a great touch! Empty office for an empty headed manchild in an empty suit sitting in an empty seat!

  • agas84363

    Its probably good obama does not show up up for work…everything he touches turns to (you know what)

  • sjmom

    The ad says it all, so no need to comment. Kudos to American Crossroads.

  • bhamlinda

    Excellent — but maybe we are better that he does nothing. When he does something it’s way beyond wrong.

  • kong1967

    Fantastic ad. I want them to take off the gloves and start punching hard like this.

  • libertyandtyranny

    Communism came to America a long time ago. The Marxist Frankfurt school members who infiltrated our universities, influencing the 60’s cultural upheaval, laid out these guidelines it would use in order to dismantle American power. It would rot the society from within.
    1. The creation of racism offences.
    2. Continual change to create confusion 3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children
    4. The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority 5. HUGE IMMIGRATION TO DESTROY IDENTITY.
    6. The promotion of excessive drinking 7. Emptying of churches
    8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime
    9. Dependency on the state or state benefits 10. Control and dumbing down of media
    11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family.
    One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud’s idea of ‘pansexualism’–the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women. To further their aims they would * attack the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and mother, and wrest away from families their rights as primary educators of their children. * abolish differences in the education of boys and girls * abolish all forms of male dominance-hence the presence of women in the armed forces * declare women to be an ‘oppressed class’ and men as ‘oppressors’ Munzenberg summed up the Frankfurt School’s long-term operation thus: “We will make the West so corrupt that it stinks.” Read more about the Frankfurt School here:

      And the MSM/Press bows and licks the boots of every point you made. This should be the commercial run repeatedly on every Media outlet. America is way better off if the empty chair stays empty until Jan. 20, 2013.


    This needs to run as much as possible in the swing states

  • It’s spot on and I love how they use the empty chair, but it’s from Karl Rove which tarnishes it’s value.

  • aposematic

    Hell No! Imagine the damage this lazy bum could have done if not a lazy bum who instead turned his hand picked America hating Czars loose to do his dirty work for him.

    • detectivedick

      That is the plan during a second Term.

  • I just had a call from a obama call center. Now I know what the people are talking about when they ask confusing questions, plus the person could barely speak english.
    I asked how they got my phone number and they hung up.
    I tried to answer the questions, but her english was bad, she had to repeat the questions two or three times.
    They used zero as good and 100 as bad, reverse of the way you normally answer number value questions.
    No wonder the polls always seem to slant toward obama.
    I hope who ever called me reads this, and hope they will get someone who can speak english………………..

  • I disagree, it is not time for him to show up for work. It’s time to clock out and let a real leader take over.

  • How about just clocking out now? We got a real leader ready to take over.
