I have seen the Bloomfield campaign's latest commercial, now launched on major networks:
Bloomfield for Congress: Dig
I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
Last Sunday, ads were running attacking Henry Waxman while I was watching "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos.
The debt in this country was a "mere" $500 billion when Waxman came to office in 1974.
Now, the debt stands at $16 trilllion.
The pile of debt just keeps rising and rising, and Henry keeps digging and digging.
This commerical is reason enough why voters are no longer "digging" Henry Waxman for another term in Congress.
After name recognition, when prospective voters learn how long Waxman has been in office, when they learn that he opposed the JOBS bill and the Simpson-Bowles debt reduction compromise, they start "digging" Bloomfield.
This is a great trend. The "low-information" voters will get all the information they need on Congressman Waxman.
Waxman does not stand a chance. He has been digging the debt whole for the greater length of his Congressional career, from the moment he realized that he would not face real competition. Those circumstances have changed, and now Waxman is digging the grave of his too-long tenure.
