Former Rick Scott spox portrays an Obama supporter in new RNC ad

September

Former campaign spokeswoman for Gov. Rick Scott, Bettina Inclan, has the starring role in this new Republican National Committee television ad as she attempts to portray a disaffected supporter of President Obama. Inclan, who is now the director of Hispanic Outreach for the RNC, tells the cardboard cutout of the president in a sultry voice, "Listen, this just isn't working."

An RNC spokesman told Talking Points Memo that although Inclan is not a Democrat, nor is she a real former Obama supporter, the portrayal is not dishonest. “It’s a lighthearted ad to show how millions of Americans feel about President Obama — he’s not the person we thought he was and it’s time to break up with him,'' the spokesman said. "But let’s be clear, it is an ad.”
