GOP airs ads against three Democrats

(CNN) – House Republicans are criticizing three Democrats for voting in favor of their party's health care reform bill in a new weeklong TV ad buy.

The 30-second spots are airing on cable television and target Reps. Vic Snyder of Arkansas, Earl Pomeroy of North Dakota and John Spratt of South Carolina.

Ken Spain, communications director of the National Republican Congressional Committee, said this early ad buy is an indication of what Democrats should expect to see in the lead up to the 2010 elections.

"Democrats are getting a taste of what next fall is going to feel like when they are going down to defeat thanks in part to the statements made by their liberal colleagues," Spain said.

    Just more childishness from the Republicans. The fact that anyone would give any attention to these morons boggles the mind.

    Talk about projection–my xGOP should concentrate on how this issue negatively reflects on their own party, standing AGAINST health care for Americans and offering NOthing constructive as alternative.

    In fact, the CBO gave the GOP "plan" a scathing analysis, which went largely unreported by the media. It covered LESS people, NO pre-existing coverage, cost billions MORE, and was a GIVEAWAY to insurance companies!

    Real Health Reform Now for America–
    God bless the compassionate legislators standing strong on this principle!

    "You better believe any fool voting for this mess will be targeted come election time."

    What would be any different from what's happening now before they've even voted? The only targetting I think they should be worried about is the nutjob fanatics that the GOP and it's minions have worked into a rabid lather by lying to them about "socialist" this and "death panels" that and "teabagging" everything (an obvious play on the revolutionary terminology targetted at these pseudo militia daycamp attending freaks) and making them all sorts of crazy over a "threat to gun rights" despite the Obama admin and the Dem Congress doing nothing to indicate they are attempting to take away 2nd Amendment gun rights. You wanna talk "targetted" in that context? Let's here it. Might as well have tea ready for when the feds show up for your "interview."
