Scared Democrats Campaigning Against White House And Leaders Agenda

Democrats are worried about losing their seats in the House and losing control of the lower chamber, the House of Representatives, if the GOP takes 39 more seats in November.

Politico reports:

Top Democrats are growing markedly more pessimistic about holding the House, privately conceding that the summertime economic and political recovery they were banking on will not likely materialize by Election Day.

Three page piece explaining at The Politico, so read it all.

Jake Tapper from ABC News' Political Punch shows us how some Democrats are fighting for their political lives, by campaigning against Obama and Democratic leaders agenda and recent votes, via campaign videos.

Some examples are shown of this at Tapper's page, such as;

...A TV ad for Rep. Bobby Bright, D-Ala., heralds how he “voted against the bailouts, against stimulus spending, against the massive government health care,” not to mention the “trillion dollar federal budget.”

....Rep. Jason Altmire, D-Penn., is up on the air in Western Pennsylvania heralding his opposition to the Democrats’ health care reform bill and the Wall Street bailout.

....“I don’t work for Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Reid, or anyone else,” says Rep. Mike McIntyre, D-NC. “I work for you.” He goes on to say he voted against the “Wall Street bailouts, the auto bailouts, the energy tax.”

....Rep. Glenn Nye, D-Va., has an ad heralding how he voted against the Democrats’ health care bill “because it cost too much and going against his own party he voted against the Wall Street bailout.”

....The ad for Rep. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., says he voted against President Bush’s attempts to “privatize” Social Security “and Nancy Pelosi’s energy tax on Hoosier families.”

....In another ad, Donnelly says his tough stance against illegal immigration “might not be what the Washington crowd wants” -- as a picture flashes of President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio – “but I don’t work for them, I work for you.”

Notice how they make a point of mentioning they work for their constituents and not Pelosi, Reid and Obama?

That is the problem we have seen throughout Obama's term of presidency, Democrats have gone against the majority of Americans to pass unpopular legislation and now the chickens are coming home to roost and they are scared of what Pelosi and co. have done.
