This is a leftist attempt to take attention off Obamacare.
“The people of West Virginia,” a narrator says. “Hardworking, honest, fiercely independent. Just like West Virginia’s own senator, Joe Manchin.”
The faces of a businessman, coal miner, young woman, and construction worker fade from the television screen and a nondescript disclaimer reads “Paid for by the Council for American Job Growth.”
Manchin nevertheless cast a vote to pass the bill at the end of June and The Council for American Job Growth aired the advertisement less than two weeks later.
Manchin is probably one of the worst in congress but the media love him.
I disagree. This is a leftist attempt to gain a very large bloc of New Democrat voters - and it needs to be done before 2014.
