DNC keeps up attacks on Cheney, Gingrich, McCain

WASHINGTON (CNN) – The Democratic National Committee criticized the Republican Party in a new Web video released Sunday evening for having former Vice President Dick Cheney, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Sen. John McCain serve as the GOP’s national spokesmen.

The 38-second clip, posted on YouTube, opens with the statement: “Meet the New GOP Sunday Show Guests” stripped across the screen before it shows the three Republicans being introduced on the Sunday morning talk shows. The videos closing line: “The New GOP. Same As The Old GOP.”

The DNC’s criticism is not new as Democrats are trying to exploit the fact that Republicans are engaged in some real soul searching as they consider how to rebuild the party in time for the 2010 midterm elections and beyond.
