American Crossroads and its affiliate, Crossroads GPS, is making an $11 million buy across eight states in a new ad campaign that attacks President Obama on the stimulus and unemployment, Politico reports.

The ad from Crossroads, titled “Actually Happened,” features an actor standing behind a computerized line graph, and attacks Obama for predicting the stimulus would get U.S. unemployment under 5.6 percent.

“But this is what the jobless rate actually is: 8.1 percent,” the actor says. “The difference? About 3.7 million jobs.”

The ad goes on to assail Obama for spending and the national debt. It is running in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia, according to Politico.
