GOP Mashes Up Obama in 2008 vs. 2012
With President Obama taking his turn in the spotlight this week, the Republican Party is comparing him to his former self.
Today, the Republican National Committee launched a new website to host all its rapid-response retorts to proceedings at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., this week: ObamaIsn'tWorking.com.
Its first barb aimed at this president is a YouTube video that mashes up the president's 2008 speech lines with nearly identical phrases delivered in 2012. The message: that when it comes to what Obama is offering, we've heard it all before.
