RNC Mocks Obama For Credit Card Reform

As President Obama travels to New Mexico for a town hall meeting today, the Republican National Committee is mocking his efforts at credit card reform (the idea being that he's spending the nation into debt). Most notably, the controversial aerial photo-op over New York City has officially surfaced as a GOP point of mockery, making its way into the web ad.

UPDATE: The DNC responds:

"I understand that the RNC is frustrated with the constant infighting and lack of coherent message and all, but going negative on Bo isn't going to help and neither is blatant hypocrisy.  What's 'priceless' is a party that doubled our national debt, championed policies that lead to the greatest economic crisis in generations and now can't muster up a single new idea to set right what they got wrong, attacking anyone for investing in the American people to get the economy back on track," said DNC spokesman Hari Sevugan
