GOP Ad: With the Obama Unemloyment at 9.5%–Where Are the Jobs?

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today released a new web video targeting Washington Democrats’ trillion-dollar “stimulus” bill and asking “where are the jobs?” The tongue-in-cheek web video, inspired by a classic 1984 TV commercial by now-Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), features a job-sniffing GOP bloodhound named Ellie Mae and a down-home voiceover by Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA).

Boehner adds:

“This is a lighthearted web video, but the underlying point is no laughing matter,” Boehner said. “At a time when Americans are looking to Washington for leadership, the trillion-dollar ‘stimulus’ isn’t working. Americans were promised the ‘stimulus’ would keep the unemployment rate from going above eight percent. It’s now at 9.5 percent, and rising. Where are the jobs?”

After the first 100 days, the US had lost 16,000 jobs each day since Democrats passed their MASSIVE Generational Theft Act, without any GOP support.

16,000 Jobs Lost Each Day Since ‘Stimulus’ Became Law

Since this chart was released in late May the US unemployment rate has shot up to 9.5%— the highest rate in 26 years!
Where are the jobs?

No wonder Speaker Pelosi’s unfavorables have skyrocketed from 37% to 57% since January.

UPDATE: Glenn Reynolds has another great GOP ad.
