The Chinese professor who helped Republicans in 2010 returns to the airwaves

BY:

One of the most powerful ads in the run-up to the 2010 Republican wave was produced by Citizens Against Government Waste and featured a Chinese professor describing America’s decline from global superpower to satrap of the People’s Republic. The simple ad depicts the professor giving a lecture in Chinese describing how America under Barack Obama became uncompetitive, debt-ridden, and weak thanks to tax, spending, and defense policy.

The ad feeds into the widespread sense that America no longer has a lock on the future. Fifty-six percent of the country believes America is on the wrong track, according to the Real Clear Politics average of polls. A Fox poll in August found that by a 2 to 1 margin, Americans believe that their civilization is in decline.
