NRCC: Dems Have Complete Power, No Accountability

More

The National Republican Congressional Committee is hitting five Blue Dog democrats with radio ads that, in addition to featuring sampled dog barks and accuse them of being "lap dogs" to President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, charge that the country is being run by "one party, with complete power, and no accountability"--seeking to turn Democrats' electoral successes and unchecked (pending Al Franken) majorities against them.

The ads blast the five Blue Dogs for supporting the $787 billion stimulus package and President Obama's budget blueprint, two issues that have brought pressure to the Blue Dogs from the left as well. The target Reps. are Zack Space (OH), Earl Pomeroy (ND), John Tanner (TN), Marion Berry (AK), and Charlie Melancon (LA). Hear the ad being run in Tanner's district here.
