Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) launched a new national TV commercial decrying President Barack Obama's failure to hold down energy prices, even as he seeks what it calls untested and naïve policies.

Crossroads GPS, a grass-roots advocacy group that Republican strategist Karl Rove conceived, is rolling out the $650,000 ad buy on national cable and local broadcast network in three markets where the president is pitching his energy plan this week: Albuquerque, N.M.; Columbus, Ohio; and Las Vegas.

"Instead of delivering practical solutions to make energy more affordable, President Obama is pursuing restrictive and naïve policies that are hurting families at the pump and in their utility bills," said Crossroads GPS President Steven Law. "There are plenty of supply-boosting solutions Obama could adopt immediately, but he remains obsessed with impractical sideshows like algae and Solyndra business schemes."

The commercial, which also is available in a longer form as a Web ad, urges viewers to contact the White House and Congress to advocate a market-driven energy policy.

Obama has taken several aggressive steps to limit energy production, including blocking offshore oil exploration, restricting the development of American oil shale, and personally lobbying against the Keystone XL pipeline, Crossroads GPS says.

Following is the short commercial for TV:
