Web ad mocks Obama as 'celebrity president'

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama's much talked about appearance on Jimmy Fallon's late night TV talk show is being used against the president by a major Republican group that says it's going up with an online ad that criticizes Obama as a "celebrity president."

American Crossroads, the independent super PAC co-founded by Karl Rove that backs GOP causes and candidates, says their spot will run online starting as early as Thursday in the three university towns the president visited during his two day, three battleground state tour Tuesday and Wednesday. Obama held events at the University of North Carolina, the University of Colorado and the University of Iowa as part of his push for the extension of a measure that would hold down federal student loan rates, an important issue for many younger voters.
