There's a micro-trend in anti-Obama ads at the moment -- Real People talking to the camera about how they believed in Obama and feel gypped. Max Rice may have ended the trend.
It reminds me of the 1994 prank call someone made to a network covering the O.J. Simpson story, in which the prankster claimed to be O.J.'s neighbor before collapsing into a fit of "Howard Stern" and "Baba Booey" references. I guess that tells you how highly Fox News thinks of the "Obama exiles" story.
UPDATE: Max talks to Raw Story:
What they were seeking is someone who voted for Obama in 2008, then somewhere in the last four years got disenfranchised and now is a huge Romney supporter. But I feel like anyone who fits that mold would also dis Romney at the same time. So, they just couldn’t find anyone. They’re in New York City, so they had to go find a kid in Chicago.
