Always helps to remind undecided voters that The Messiah is part of the party that has the lowest Congressional approval ever.

How long until the Democrats call this a smear?

Whatever the case, it's nice to see the GOP get in the game.

It's about time.
Barack Obama returns to Capitol Hill on Tuesday to speak with House Democrats, and Republicans will try to spoil the party by linking the Democrats’ presidential nominee to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and their reluctance to allow votes on offshore oil drilling.

Rep. Adam Putnam (R-Fla.) and Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) will greet Obama’s arrival with a news conference in which they’ll assert that Reid (D-Nev.) and Pelosi (D-Calif.) are holding up votes on offshore drilling in order to protect Obama.

They’ll also begin to use “Pelosi-Reid-Obama” in the all-in-the-same-breath way that Democrats now use “Bush-McCain” — to make the parties’ popular candidates indistinguishable from their less beloved incumbents.

Pelosi has told Politico that she’s standing in the way on a drilling vote because she’s determined to use the speaker’s gavel to “save the planet.” Reid said Monday that he would allow votes on amendments to a long-stalled energy package, including one on drilling, and Republican leaders were skeptically considering the offer Monday evening.
Saving the planet? What hubris.
The attack on Obama and the Democratic leadership comes as some of the more partisan members of the House GOP — concerned that their party’s seemingly successful energy message isn’t enough to prevent electoral disaster in November — agitate for more aggressive attacks on the Democrats.
How is it an attack to point out Obama belongs in the same company as the incompetent Pelosi and Dingy Harry?

Another interesting line of attack is this:
In a preview, one GOP aide declared: “By November, every American voter will know the name of Charlie Rangel the way they knew Tom DeLay in 2006. Count on it.”
Of course the left will scream that it's racist.

When in doubt, cry racism.
