WV Sen: Manchin Ad Literally Takes a Shot at Obama-Endorsed Legislation

There is no better sign of just how deeply unpopular the Obama administration is in West Virginia than the newest ad from Democratic Gov. Joe Manchin. Manchin makes taking on some of the tent poles of this administration central to the ad, and uses the language of the right to do so: repealing the “bad parts” of “Obamacare,” and keeping the federal government “off our backs.” He quite literally takes a shot at “Cap and Trade” legislation.

Keep in mind, this is the ad from the Democrat running for Senate. I wonder if his Republican challenger, John Raese, plans to actually hit the stimulus with a nuclear bomb in his next ad.

One problem I have with the Manchin ad is that the West Virginia  governor claims to be a sportsman, but chooses to shoot cap and trade. I personally think going after prey that has already been dead  for a long time isn’t very sporting.
