Obama Government Shutdown Ad: 'Irresponsible'

Here's an email notice of a new ad from Obama's Organizing For Action, called "Irresponsible." No surprise, it trashes Republicans and the Tea Party for the government shutdown.

Mary --

I want you to see the TV ad we're about to put on the air.

It's hard hitting, because it needs to be: This is about sending a national message to the Tea Party Republicans, who are causing this mess, and Speaker John Boehner, who's letting them.

You should see the ad -- and (this is the really important part) take action. We need your voice today to join in saying "enough already!"

This isn't just about the government shutdown -- the same Tea Party Republicans who shut down the government are threatening to take us into economic shutdown by refusing to pay their bills.

Raising the debt limit is something Congress has to do because it has to make good on the financial commitments that it made.

Not doing that wouldn't just send America back into recession -- it could cause a global financial meltdown.

They're no longer simply "playing political games" -- they really did shut down the federal government because they couldn't defund or delay Obamacare. It's on us to take them at their word that they'd do the same thing here.

That's why we're fighting back. But it can't just be a TV ad -- that's not going to change Washington, not on its own.

We all need to take action -- watch the ad, then say you're not going to let John Boehner and the Tea Party Republicans get away with this:

The other side will spend millions to maintain the status quo. We're fighting for change -- chip in $5 or more to support OFA today.
Obama should cut the crap and start TALKING with the elected representatives of half the people in the country.

The ad says:

"Government shutdown is hurting veterans, seniors, and our kids."

"Tell [Republicans] to stand up to the Tea Party."
The Obama administration, DEMOCRATS, are choosing which government offices and services to shutdown. They are deciding to close open air monuments, parks, and toss people out of their homes.

The Tea Party isn't doing that.

If the government tried to force me out of my home, I would refuse.

This is tyrannical stuff.

If Obama and his crew are "winning," and Americans believe the Tea Party is solely to blame for this shutdown, then those Americans are stupid. They're blind. They're as irresponsible as the bully Obama and the Dems for PUNISHING us.
