Children are shown as slaves forced to pay for deficit spending in a new advertisement for a Republican congressional candidate in Florida.
“Turn This Ship Around” is the title of the 30-second video for Mark Oxner, a businessman seeking a House seat in Florida’s new 27th District, where former Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson is hoping to get back in Congress after being defeated in his 2010 re-election bid.
The Oxner ad depicts Grayson as the pet parrot of Obama, who captains a ship aboard which the beneficiaries of federal bailouts and subsidies enjoy a luxury cruise. But the video then shows miserable children below deck, chained to oars as if on a slave galley. The ship is finally revealed to be the U.S.S. Constitution, renamed the “ObamaBoat” and sailing off the end of the Earth. The video and full script are here.
