New TV Ads Target Walberg
Americans United for Change is launching an ad campaign urging Republicans in Congress to override President Bush's veto of SCHIP. Here's the national ad they're running:
They're also specifically targeting individual Republicans in Congress, including Tim Walberg. From their press release:
With support from AFSCME, SEIU and MoveOn.org -- Americans United for Change will launch a significant-six figure national TV ad starting on Monday called “Abby” that will run through the expected October 18th vote. You may view “Abby” here: http://www.americansunitedforchange.org/blog/entries/abby/Labor has usually sat out most elections in the 7th District, and I'm excited to see them take on an active role. I look forward to seeing what they do.
While I'm glad to see someone standing up for the kids, I'm skeptical of seeing MoveOn in the mix. In my mind they have lost all credibility after what they did to Petreus.
Because it was already determined that the General was going to be a water boy for this administration, the legitimate ad was ready to go. We knew (and it was predicted numerous times in the media) that he was going to put a positive spin on the war. The only mishap on the ad was the posting of it prematurely.
For any war authority (Petraeus, Colin Powell--doesn't matter who) to testify that the war is going well, is a betrayal of not only American citizens but of the world. We can't afford any more hyperbole.
Moveon was right in not backing down.
I definitely agree. Petreus and this administration betrayed us all. MoveOn was just telling it like it is.
MoveOn can tell it however it wants. They are free to be as ignorant as the administration and they are free to throw gas on a bonfire rather than engage in the real discussion.
If Schauer thinks MoveOn is going to help him win Michigan's 7th district, he is toking it up far too much.
I was not aware that Schaur was counting on MoveOn for assistance and whether or not they could help is pure speculation at this point. It is very difficult to come to any logical or sane conclusions, considering the discomfort of this nation at this time.Post a Comment
But to call the organization "ignorant" or to compare them to this evil administration is beyond the pale. If only Bush and clan were ignorant; it would be more forgiveable.
(Sorry, fitzy, for the off-topic rant. I won't do it again.)
