Democratic Priorities

When Karl Rove's group Crossroads GPS airs grossly misleading attack ads, it is not enough for Democrats to simply decry these efforts as an evil product of secret outside money.  The reality is that Democrats tried to pass the Disclose Act, which would have put an end to such efforts, but the Republicans killed it.  So, although they have a lot less money to work with, Democrats have to try to fight back.  That is what Democratic Super PAC, Priorities USA, is trying to do with this  new ad which directly responds to the Crossroads GPS ad.  As Greg Sargent summarizes, it "stresses three key points that will be central to the Dems’ 2012 messaging: Republicans have opposed economic reform at every turn; they would end Medicare; and they are trying to preserve tax breaks for oil companies and the rich."
