And the game is afoot. With the GOP house childishly voting in lockstep against the stimulus bill, liberal groups are set to air a BRUTAL ad tomorrow asking the simple question: Will you side with Obama or Rush Limbaugh?

Absolutely delicious:

Politico has learned that tomorrow Americans United for Change, a liberal group, will begin airing radio ads in three states Obama won — Ohio, Pennsylvania and Nevada — with a tough question aimed at the GOP senators there: Will you side with Obama or Rush Limbaugh?

"Every Republican member of the House chose to take Rush Limbaugh’s advice," says the narrator after playing the conservative talk radio giant’s declaration that he hopes Obama "fails."

"Every Republican voted with Limbaugh — and against creating 4 million new American jobs. We can understand why a extreme partisan like Rush Limbaugh wants President Obama’s Jobs program to fail — but the members of Congress elected to represent the citizens in their districts? That’s another matter. Now the Obama plan goes to the Senate, and the question is: Will our Senator"—here the ad is tailored by state to name George Voinovich in Ohio, Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania, and John Ensign in Nevada—"side with Rush Limbaugh too?"

The GOP had their chance to do the right thing. They decided to play politics and stomp their feet like little children. Now the hammer is about to drop. With Obama aides leaking that Judd Gregg may be tapped for Commerce, which would (presumably) give the Dems 60 seats, the noose is beginning to tighten.

Link to group. The ad that I'm referencing doesn't appear to be online yet. I'm stepping out for awhile, so I won't be around to add it, should it appear on the tubes.

Here is the audio. Thanks Scarce (hand out some mojo).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
