Desperate Democrats Invoke George W. Bush in New Campaign Ad -- UPDATED!! Dems Yank Ad! -- WAIT!! DNC Posts New Version!

Combine Bush-hatred and exteme political desperation and it looks like the Democrats have arrived on a party platform for November.

They're right, though: The choice is clear. We can vote for a president and party who are presiding over massive and rising unemployment nationally and in the high double-digits in Democratic states. The horrible job numbers are raising fears of a "double-dip" recession. More and more people have come around to the fact that the Democrats' vaunted "stimulus" didn't do jack. But when all else fails, blame the Congress! (Yeah, that'll work). Meanwhile, it can't be a good sign that the president's making the pitch to elderly voters hoping they'll remain in the Democratic column. This ain't Franklin Roosevelt's party no more, who can blame him?!! And don't even get me going about foreign policy! Sheesh, if Obama's losing key sectors of the U.S. electorate, at least his got Hamas, Hezbollah, and the rest of global jihad in his corner. And he can claim a phenomenal record on facilitating Iran's acquisition of nuclear capabilities. That's nothing to blink at!! And darn, what is wrong with all of these respondents on Gallup's Ground Zero polling? "More Disapprove Than Approve of Obama Mosque Remarks." These people are dolts — dolts I tell you! The president even said it himself: "We are no longer just a Christian nation." I can't imagine a better rallying cry! What is wrong with you people? And you miss George W. Bush? Impossible!!


Update: William Jacobson has the news, "DNC Pulls Bush Ad." (Via Memeorandum.) ... UPDATE II: Check William's post. It look like the DNC took the ad down to make revisions, but the Bush evocation remains. Hot Air Pundit has the full story.

That's an odd ad. They are still running against Bush? What a joke.

I can see why they pulled it. It does make it seem as if they are taking responsibility for what is happening now. I cannot imagine that sells well with a large number of voters.
If you are a senior citizen it is not hard to see that the costs of Obamacare are going to come out of rationing care to seniors. Too old for this procedure, too old for this medication, too old to exist. I see this in dealing with Medicare. Lord, don't have a medical test one hour before Medicare says you can. The stink Medicare raised because I had a test 2 days before a year was up between tests. It is the little refusals of care that seem insignificant, but have lasting affects on one's quality of life.
preventive medical care would go a long way to lessening costs.
That does not count for the economy, jobs, et al.
