WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee (RNC) launched a new web video “The Obama 2012 Fashion Show” ahead of the Obama campaign’s ritzy NYC fashion show fundraiser tonight. With 12 million Americans struggling to find work in this weak economy, the optics of this high-end event featuring well-heeled celebrities flies in the face of President Obama’s rhetoric.

“President Obama will need to sell a lot of scarves and make-up to try and cover up the three years of his failed economic policies,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “While his campaign is trying to put chic back in Chicago, 12 million Americans are out of work, struggling to get by because of Obama’s weak economic leadership.”
“Instead of trying to curry favor with the rich and famous, President Obama should focus on regular Americans who are being hurt every day by his inability to get our economy back on track. But, with his job on the line, it is clear from his priorities that he cares about one thing: saving his own job, at the expense of the American people.”
