A visit to the Republican National Committee’s GOP.com today will direct you to this fundraising appeal page, entitled “Change Direction”:

GOP concedes 2012 election to Obama

Looks harmless, right?  Look closer:

GOP concedes 2012 election to Obama

There’s only one way Obama’s last day in office could be January 20, 2017 — if he wins reelection in 2012.

IF you take the time to watch the campaign ad, you’ll see that the image was pulled from a fictitious news report. But if you don’t watch the video, the image makes no sense whatsoever.

Is advertising Obama’s hypothetical reelection really the best first impression to offer visitors of GOP.com?  Er, I don’t think so.
