I guess this is making national news now. The incumbent Dem congressman from a district near us has been running this ad on tv here:
It's directly distancing himself from Pelosi and Obama. Whether or not he's re-elected doesn't directly impact me, since he's not our congressman, but it brings up an interesting question - he's not a blue dog dem. He voted for HCR, and is usually a smile and nod Washington Dem - this ad is out of character for him and his voting record. If he does manage to squeak through the election, will he be essentially neutered after making this kind of statement against the old school party?
I think most Dems are running for cover. I don't vote the party but the person. I think any incumbents are in trouble. I think people, in general, are sick and tired of the spend, spend, spend theory that DC has us going in. If you are interested in politics, there is a great group called "Smart Girls Politics", yes we do allow men in, but it is a group of Mom's who want a better life for their children, then what they see going on now.

I watched it, but he never says what State or district he is running for? Where is this?

He's saying what he thinks he needs to in order to get re-elected.
He is being a politicain
Its the same as the republicans voting against the stimulus, demonizing it...then first in line for the handout....and ADVERTISING what THEY did with the money
