Here is another leftist organization trying to brand itself an "Independent" group. Let's expose this group for what it really is. A leftist liberal bunch of liars that have the same agenda that every other leftist (i.e., etc.).

I don't know how new or pervasive this organization is, but a prompt and immediate response to their liberal rhetoric is in order.

Americans United Moves Beyond Social Security Issue

Americans United -- formerly Americans United to Protect Social Security -- will kick off its effort with a $1 million national cable ad buy seeking to highlight the "culture of corruption" that allegedly pervades the nation's capital.

Produced by Jim Margolis, a partner in the Democratic media firm GMMB, the ad runs through a list of negative items it wants viewers to associate with Republicans -- from high gas prices (an image of Halliburton is shown) to ethics problems (images of Rep. Tom Delay, lobbyist Jack Abramoff, and former vice presidential chief of staff Scooter Libby are shown) to Hurricane Katrina (cue image of the now infamous "Brownie").

"What time is it?" asks the ad's narrator. "Time for a change." It goes on to promote the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act that congressional Democrats unveiled last week.

Also on hand at the press event was Democratic pollster Mark Mellman, who argued that "political corruption is likely to be a very important issue in this election." Pointing to 1994's landslide Republican victories, Mellman concluded there is an "electoral consequence" for the perception of corruption.

The hope in Democratic circles is that Americans United will grow into a force similar to Progress For America -- the largest conservative 527 organization operating in the political sphere.
