100210topEditor’s Note – The NY Times headline claims the ad assualt is directed toward the GOP, but make no mistake about it, this is an assault on the tea party movement.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and these are indeed desperate times for the Democrat Party, however, desperate times often bring about rash decisions that are later regretted.  As for Obama, November is coming and the American people will let him know how they feel about his decision making skills.
