A new TV ad produced by Americans for Shared Prosperity
paints President Barack Obama as a bad boyfriend the country is stuck with for now – but maybe not his "friends."
"In 2008 I fell in love. His online profile made him seem so perfect. Handsome, smart, charming, articulate. All the right values. I trusted him," a woman in a soft living room setting says to the camera in what looks like a commercial for an online dating site.

"By 2012 our relationship was in trouble, but I stuck with him because he promised he'd be better," she says, as the pleasant feel of the commercial quickly gets more ominous.
"He told me we'd be safe," she says. "Have you looked at the news? He's in my emails and text messages, spying on me but ignoring real threats.
"He said that we'd finally get on our feet financially. I’ll never pay down what he's spent,” she continues. "He thinks the only thing I care about is free birth control, but he won't even let me keep my own doctor."
By this time her computer screen has shown the man she is talking about is Obama.
"I know I'm stuck with Barack for two more years ... but I'm not stuck with his friends," she says, a reference to the November midterm elections in which Republicans hope to retain control of the House of Representatives and take over the Senate.
"I'm looking for someone who gets that this isn't about him," the woman says. "It's about us."
