RNC: After One Year, Americans Want Change – from Obama

Marking President Barack Obama’s first year in office, the Republican National Committee Thursday released a new web video which makes no bones about the GOP’s attempts to tap into the anti-tax and anti-big government sentiments among Tea Partiers.

“His rhetoric promised ‘Change we can believe in,’” the voice-over said, “but his record delivered disappointment, change we didn’t expect.”

The ad enumerates those offenses observed as most egregious–the stimulus bill, cap and trade, and health care reform–by the Tea Party groups, but makes an assertion many in the conservative grassroots have not yet warmed to: That Republicans would have performed better than Democrats and delivered the change Obama only promised.

“This November the American people will tell the President that Republicans are ones that can enact the change we need.”
