A new ad by the Republican National Committee takes aim at President Barack Obama for failing to advance a range of issues on his legislative agenda.

The ad called "The First 100 Days" says Obama's agenda on gun-control, immigration reform, and the budget has "already suffered a string of defeats."

Story continues below.

Released on Wednesday, the ad also highlights a quote the president made at his Tuesday press conference in response to whether he still had "the juice" to get his legislative agenda through Congress.

"Maybe I should just pack up and go home," Obama said.

According to The Hill, the Democratic National Committee is furious over the ad, which it says exploits the Newtown, Conn., school shootings last December.

Specifically, the Democrats are critical of Republicans for including a photo of the president reaching to embrace Nicole Hockley, the distraught mother of a victim of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings that left 20 children and 6 educators dead.

According to The Hill, DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse tweeted the decision to include the photo was "disgraceful" and "disgusting."

The RNC defended its decision, saying the image was part of an ABC News package it pulled from for the ad.
