Pro-Romney Super PAC Releases New Ad Based On Ryan’s ‘Faded Obama Poster’ Line

A new television spot from pro-Romney Super PAC Crossroads Generation plays off Republican VP nominee Paul Ryan‘s memorable “faded Obama poster” line from his speech last night before the Republican National Convention.

The ad begins with a time-lapse of a child’s bedroom from infancy to teenage years to the eventual “college years” beginning in 2008, as indicated by an Obama poster on the wall with college memorabilia.

A soundbite from then-candidate Barack Obama declares that “change has come” in 2008, followed by a darkening of the room and audio samples in which the president says “I said change we can believe in, not change we can believe in tomorrow” and “shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected.” A faux-newscaster announces that college tuitions are spiking, “just as young graduates are unable to find work to pay it off.”

The bedroom then fills with packed boxes and a diploma on the wall, indicating the student has now graduated in 2012.

As the camera zooms in on the faded Obama poster, the young graduate walks tells a friend on the phone that “I’m living with my parents again. I don’t know, there’s just no jobs out there.” He approaches the wall and tears down the poster, adding, “I’ve been doing this since graduation and I can’t do it for four more years.”
