As we continue in a relatively jobless recovery, and with economic storm clouds growing, there is bigotry and hatred growing out in our nation.  This ain't tea baggers: it's blue dog bigotry.  And they will attack President Obama to win an election:

"Because no one should be ever rewarded for breaking the law," Donnelly says in the ad. "That may not be what the Washington crowd wants. But I don't work for them. I work for you." As Donnelly says the words "Washington crowd," the ad pans over a photograph of President Obama, Pelosi, and House Minority Leader John Boehner.

Indiana Democrat Bashes Obama In New Campaign Spot (VIDEO)

He went down to the border so he could demonize Hispanics in his TV ad.


Donnelly's 30-second spot slips in the hit on Obama subtly and quickly: It flashes a picture of Obama with John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi and features Donnelly saying: "I don't work for them."


Strikingly, Donnelly's ad appears to hint that Obama and Dems don't oppose people getting "rewarded for breaking the law."

Blue Dog Dem's TV ad hits Obama as part of "Washington crowd"

Bigotry is wrong even if a Democrat does it.

Winning a Democratic majority by using racism or anti-hispanic bigotry around immigration issues is immoral.  People need to let Donnelly know that Democrats do not accept this kind of campaign.

I firmly reject More Democrats if it means bigots like him.  Only Better Democrats.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
