While Obama Blames Bush . . .



Text  



One Democratic incumbent, Rep. Earl Pomeroy (N.D.) is embracing the legacy of W. in a new campaign ad:

The 30-second spot opens with an image of Mr. Bush at a bill signing, as a narrator explains: “When George Bush proposed a Medicare prescription drug plan, Earl Pomeroy voted yes, putting seniors before party.” (He was one of just 16 Democrats who voted for the bill when it passed in 2003; most in his party thought it did not go far enough.)

Referring to his Republican opponent, the ad continues, “Rick Berg would roll back prescription drug coverage.”

Mr. Pomeroy also links himself to Mr. Bush’s party, stating, “Earl joined Republicans to fight Internet predators, protecting kids.”
