RNC Targets Blue Dogs In New Radio Ads

Views

The Blue Dogs just can’t get a break. In addition to facing rhetorical fire from the left — that is, from liberals who think they’re too conservative on health care — they’re now facing fire from the right, in a new wave of radio ads from the Republican National Committee.

The new radio ads are targeting the four Blue Dog Congressmen who helped advance the health care bill out of committee: Bart Gordon (TN), Zack Space (OH), Baron Hill (IN) and Mike Ross (AR).

“[Congressman NAME] could have stopped the expensive Obama-Pelosi health care plan dead in its tracks,” the announcer says. “[Congressman NAME] held a vote that counted. But instead of using that vote to help taxpayers, [Congressman NAME] used it to help Obama and Pelosi.”

The Mike Ross version is available here. The full script is available after the jump.

Comic Voice: “He folded like a lawn chair.”

Voice: “[Congressman NAME].”

Comic Voice: “He threw in the towel.”

Voice: “[Congressman NAME] did exactly what Nancy Pelosi wanted him to do.”

Comic Voice: “He caved in. He buckled.”

Voice: “[Congressman NAME] was one of just four congressmen who cast the deciding votes to advance Nancy Pelosi’s radical big government health care plan…[Congressman NAME] backed a plan that will cost taxpayers billions….just days after talking like he wouldn’t.”

Comic Voice: “He flipped. He flopped. He rolled over.”

Voice: “[Congressman NAME] could have stopped the expensive Obama-Pelosi health care plan dead in its tracks. [Congressman NAME] held a vote that counted. But instead of using that vote to help taxpayers, [Congressman NAME] used it to help Obama and Pelosi.”

Voice: “It’s big government. It’s big money. And it’ll hit you where it hurts.”

Comic Voice: “Ouch!”

Voice: “Call [Congressman NAME] at 202-225-3121. Tell him to stop voting with Nancy Pelosi.”
