    Washington (CNN) - An independent group co-founded by Karl Rove says it's going up with new TV commercials that claim that President Barack Obama has broken promises when it comes to homeowners facing foreclosure, taxes, health care coverage and cutting the deficit.

    Crossroads GPS announced Wednesday morning that they will spend $8 million to run their ads in ten battleground states between now and the end of May, and they add that they'll spend $25 million total to air the spots over the next four weeks.

    The group says the 60-second commercial will air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia, all considered states both parties will fight hard for in November's presidential election.

    "President Obama's agenda promised so much," says the narrator in the ad, which then includes a clip from June 2008 of then-presidential candidate Obama saying "we must help the millions of homeowners facing foreclosure." The narrator picks up, saying "promise broken. One in five mortgages are still under water."

    Oh this will be good!

    The republicans have blocked everything for three and a half years.. Floridians KNOW that! Especially those with MORTGAGES.

    This is so typical of the Republican Propaganda Machine, these people like Rove promote the republican policies and push legislation that cause the problems for American Citizens, then blame the vicitims. Its all very similar to the tactics of his chronies like William Krystal and other leaders of think tanks from the far right.

    These are dangerous propagandists with a very very far right agenda that have all cost the US billions of dollars for their tactics and skeems that backfire on the US Tax Payers on everything from pro corporate legislation to wars.
