The scoop from Washington

Obama hit from the left in ad by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee

| 1 Comment

WASHINGTON--President Obama is being hit from the left by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee--urging no compromise with Republicans over extending the Bush income tax cuts for earners above $250,000. The group is running the spots in D.C. and added Iowa after some $50,000 in donations came through on the first day the spot was released.

I am so glad that the PCCC is running those ads. The planned tax deal's bad on about five levels. I really think the Democrats need to derail that thing by any means necessary. We need to hit Obama hard from the left, it is the only thing that might make him stop and re-think. Giving in to the Republicans on this is not only stupid and dangerous to the nation, it's just plain bad politics. The majority of the public opposes it *, for only one thing.
