DNC blasts Kyl in new web video

WASHINGTON (CNN) - The Democratic National Committee released a new Web video Thursday criticizing Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Arizona, for saying in a statement Monday that he wants to "cancel the rest of the stimulus spending."

The video accused the three-term Republican senator of being "just another member of the 'Party of No.'" It features a number of projects in Arizona funded by President Obama's $787 billion stimulus package.

Earlier in the day, the Republican National Committee released its own Web video blasting Obama for the stimulus package.

    If you read Kyl's statement he makes some very good points.

    Most of us feared that this money would be wasted.

    If they can't use our money wisely, they should not spend it.

    Jon Kyl "Party of No we should not waste this money"

    Don't cancel the stimulus! Nancy Pelosi needs some of that money to protect and take care of her mice population out in the California wetlands. Money well spent there folks.

    Remember, Obama pledged to create 3 million new jobs. Well he said he would save or create 3 million jobs. Well I guess he said he would save or create a million jobs. Well, yesterday he said he would put thousands to work.

    At least he can claim that his policies haven't destroyed 3 million jobs, yet.

    Ya know, America is in a bad way, and i'm not talking economics either. This is ONE POLARIZED COUNTRY !!! I am sixty one years old and a Vietnam Vet, yet I've never seen anything like this. Its no longer a matter of whats best for our country, but, rather, whose side wins. We'd better straighten up and act like grownups, and I mean soon, or somethin' bad is gonna happen, and its not going to discriminate between Red and Blue when it comes to dealin' out the big hurt.

    The vast majority of my generation never wore their country's uniform, and never contributed service of any kind. Shameful, but its true and not something to be proud of. I keep waiting for them to grow up and quit living ONLY for themselves. Walk a mile in another's shoes, and maybe you will get some REAL fulfillment.
