New RNC ad plays Debbie Wasserman Schultz 2008 Hillary support against Obama

News

A new video released by the Republican National Committee takes aim at the President in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz's home state of Florida, using the Democratic National Committee Chairwoman's 2008 words against her party's leader and US President.

The video entitled "Not Up To The Job," notes Rep. Wasserman Schultz's strong support of then candidate Barack Obama's chief rival in the 2008 Democratic primary; Hillary Clinton. Over chants of "Hil-la-ry" the video cuts between stats of the unemployment rate in Florida over the Obama presidency, new foreclosure filings in the state over the last four years, and the thousands of Florida residents currently living in poverty.

"In 2008, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz knew Obama wasn't up to the job... Four leaders we all do. Change Direction, Donate at GOP.com," the ad displays.

Since Rep. Wasserman Schultz assumed the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee in 2011, she has been one of the President's most visible and vocal public defenders.  Florida is expected to once again be a key swing state in the general election, and the video has been released just one day before the Sunshine State's GOP primary.
