American Crossroads Brings Back a Familiar Term: ‘Malaise.’


American Crossroads unveils a new, two-and-a-half minutes web video featuring outgoing Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour. He stands against a blank white wall as animated graphs and charts illustrate his points beside him – including the infamous Obama administration projection of how the stimulus would keep unemployment below 8 percent.

Barbour points out, “even breakfast cereal and salt are under regulatory attack.”

He concludes, “a second Obama term means making this malaise permanent.”
