Yesterday Markos pointed out the obvious about efforts to go after Republicans opposed to health care reform -- it's a waste of time and money:
The American people elected huge Democratic majorities because they wanted Democratic solutions to many of our nation's problems. Not because they wanted Democrats to allow Republicans -- the cause of most of our problems -- to continue running the government. Yet even now, after months of Democratic obstruction, the best these "White House allies" can do is lob barbs at irrelevant Republicans.
They should focus their fire on the individuals who are actually the problem.
And now the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Democracy For America have a new ad to "Hold Snowe Accountable," aimed at convincing Olympia Snowe (R-ME) to support a public option. And it's a great ad -- powerful and moving:
Now imagine this ad running in the Max Baucus-Caucus and Blue Dog states against the Democrats who are standing in the way of real health care reform. Let's pressure the people who can make things happen instead of pretending that getting a lone Republican vote on a watered-down bill would mean victory.
