They ignored us

I think this ad, from Colorado Republican Senate candidate Ken Buck and spotted by National Review’s Jim Geraghty, sums up one reason for the energy and enthusiasm of the tea party and other aroused opponents of the Obama Democrats this year. “They heard us, and yet they ignored us,” Buck says. The American people, speaking through polls  and through the voters of (yes) Massachusetts, said, Don’t pass that health care bill. The Obama Democrats passed it anyway. They are now set to face the political consequences. Or, as Buck concludes, “Folks, on November 2 they will ignore us no more.”

Liberals who are puzzled by what’s happening should take 30 seconds and watch this ad.
