Crossroads ad blasts Obama for 'the worst economic recovery America has ever had'

The ad plays Pelley's comment, then a narrator pivots to Obama.

"Forty-one straight months of unemployment over 8 percent. Almost four million fewer jobs than President Obama predicted, 23 million Americans without full-time work — the results of President Obama's failed economic policies," the ad says. "Tell him: For real job growth, stop spending and cut the debt."

The organization, which has the backing of former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove and former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) and can raise uncapped donations, has long focused in on attacking Obama's economic record. This ad comes from the "issue advocacy" side, which does not have to disclose its donors.

The group is spending $11 million on the ad, a major buy that will run for 11 days in Florida, Iowa, Colorado, North Carolina, Michigan, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.
