Republicans highlight 'summer of failure'

 The NRSC is out with a new web ad Tuesday.

(CNN) - It hasn't been the best of summers for congressional Democrats and now Republicans are making an effort to remind voters just how difficult the last three months have been for the party in charge in Washington.

In a new Web video out Tuesday morning, the National Republican Senatorial Committee repeatedly flashes reports from a wide variety of cable news programs that report a rising unemployment rate, question the efficacy of the stimulus program, discuss the possibility of a double-dip recession, and show President Obama's sinking approval ratings.

The ad also takes digs at the president for embarking on a 10 day vacation in Martha's Vineyard and first lady Michelle Obama for visiting Spain on a lavish trip with her daughter earlier this year.

"So … How was YOUR summer?" the ad asks. "The Recovery Starts November 2nd."

    Republicans, how was your Long August break? Did you play golf the whole time? Or did you just spend time with your family?

    I don't care what anybody says, President Carter was Right!
    If we would have listen to him from the start, the republicans wouldn't still be making a mess of things. The republicans does nothing to help the American people but make it their life work to make sure Obama doesn't.

    And you people can't see that!

    President Carter is Right!

    That about sums up the utter failure from Obozo and his Democratic cronies in congress.

    The Dems spent a whole year fooling around with Ozerocare while the economy burned and NOW they want to try to help the economy? I can see november from my house!
