Democrats Launch TV Ad Hailing Accomplishments, Assailing Bush
Here's the video:
The ad is the beginning of a month-long campaign by the DSCC, DCCC, and DNC:
"Congress is making progress on the new direction the American people demanded," said DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen. "There is more work to do, this August we're going district by district to urge Republicans to stop obstructing progress and work with us to end the war in Iraq. Republicans who continue to vote in lock step with the President Bush's failed policies will be held accountable."I think it's a pretty good ad. It covers a lot in 30 seconds and hits the high points, especially for the largely non-politicized majority of the audience who only know that the don't like the war or the direction in which the country is headed.
"The American people want a new direction in Iraq yet President Bush and his Republican allies are stubbornly supporting a policy that is making America less safe," said Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. "Time and again, Democrats have passed legislation to end Bush's war of choice in Iraq but Republicans refuse to change course. Democrats will continue to hold them accountable but one thing is clear?Democrats have accomplished more for the American people in the past six months than Republicans accomplished in six years."
The ad campaign kicks off a Month of Action on Iraq calling on Bush and Republicans in the House and Senate to change direction by ending the war. The Committees will also spend the month of August targeting Republicans in their home states and districts for their support of the President's failed Iraq policy and their continued obstruction of Democratic proposals to end the war.
