RNC Launches Web Video On Five Year Anniversary Of Obama’s Campaign Kickoff

The Republican National Committee (RNC) released a new web video “Five Years Later” on the fifth anniversary of Barack Obama’s campaign announcement in Springfield, IL. At the 2007 kickoff event, Candidate Obama discussed a Washington filled with failed promises by politicians and run by lobbyists and special interests. Five years later, the president fits his own dismal description of Washington, and the American people are not better off.

“Five years ago today, Barack Obama kicked-off his presidential campaign that ran on the basis of ‘hope and change.’ He promised to ‘turn the page’ on American politics and ‘usher in a new birth of freedom’ that would change the political landscape,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

“Today, President Obama has left this nation more polarized than ever, with millions of Americans unemployed and struggling to make ends meet. His recent decisions to embrace a Super PAC along with his assault on religious freedom further highlight his record of failed promises. More accurate than ever is President Obama’s grim 2007 description of American politics. It’s time to change direction and elect a Republican to the White House.”
