This blog continues the discussion that we began with Epic Journey: The 2008 Elections and American Politics (Rowman and Littlefield, 2009).The latest book in this series is Divided We Stand: The 2020 Elections and American Politics.
Conservative super-PAC American Crossroads released a Web ad Friday, mocking the Obama administration in the style of the long-running "Masterpiece Theatre" drama series.
The video features past clips of President Obama comparing his foreign-policy accomplishments to other those of presidents, and defending the economic problems facing Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner as the worst since Alexander Hamilton. The video also derides Vice President Biden for a spelling gaffe.
"America's fourth greatest president, second greatest Treasury secretary and 47th greatest vice president," says a British accented narrator in the video. "Together only they could raise the debt limit to $16 trillion and keep 13 million American out of work."
