From yesterday’s ‘Spatch:
Moveon.org, the liberal political action committee, is targeting U.S. Rep. Pat Tiberi, R-Genoa Township, in its latest “caught red handed” commercials.
The ad features a picture of Tiberi with bright red hands and charges that the congressman took hundreds of thousands in campaign contributions from health care and insurance interests and then voted against legislation which would lower health care costs by limiting co-pays and out-of-pocket expenses.
From Wednesday’s Ohio Quinnipiac Poll:
-Only 39% of Independents approve of the way Obama is handling health care.
-Only 37% of Independents support Obama’s health care plan.
-72% of Independents don’t believe Obama when he says his health care plan won’t add to the deficit.
In other words, Obama’s health care plan is a massive loser among swing voters in Ohio.
On top of that, spending thousands upon thousands of dollars to take on a five-term Congressman who shows zero signs of vulnerability is downright silly.
Now, if Moveon wants to waste its money, fine. Spending cash in Ohio’s 12th does nothing but make sure it can’t be spent in an actual competitive district and it helps Tiberi raise more dough.
And by the way, Tiberi’s opponent doesn’t even live in the 12th District, and has expressed zero desire to move there.
Keep it up, morons.
