GOP Ad Airing in Va. Paints Obama as Dupe of Chinese

July 27, 2011

The presidential race is already creeping onto local television in the 2012 battleground of Virginia.

The Republican National Committee previewed a new 30-second attack ad Wednesday that portrays President Barack Obama as a dupe of a China that has mastered the United States by January 2017, the hypothetical end of Obama's second term.

The ad has light penetration but a big social media component in Virginia. It depicts a wide-eyed girl in a darkened room fearfully viewing television images of Obama before a red-and-yellow Chinese flag and a cutaway shot of China's Communist leaders applauding.

RNC political director Rick Wiley says the ad is also airing in North Carolina, Iowa, Ohio, Florida and Indiana — states Obama won in 2008 but Republican George W. Bush carried in his 2004 re-election.
