(SACRAMENTO) A conservative political action committee is rejecting calls for conservatives and Republicans to go along and get along with President Elect Barack Obama.
The Our Country Deserves Better Committee (www.OurCountryPAC.org) has instead unveiled a new television ad campaign that criticizes Obamas push for massive big government spending and a series of corruption scandals among top members of his team as not the change we were promised.
The television ad campaign will begin its broadcast run next week the week Obama is inaugurated as the next President of the United States.

Its ideological suicide for conservatives to sit back silent while Obama pushes for untold hundreds of billions in new spending and bailouts. If conservatives and Republicans cant find within them the ideological conviction to oppose this fleecing of the taxpayers, then what is it that we stand for? asked Sal Russo, Chief Strategist for the Our Country Deserves Better Committee.
The ad has been viewed thousands of times and awarded several YouTube Honors in the first 12 hours since it has been posted online: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKrTBwcgLjY
Russo, who got his start in politics as an aide to Governor Ronald Reagan, rejected the calls made by some Republicans to hold off in speaking out against Obamas policies.
Some people have said we shouldnt speak up now for our beliefs, but instead hold off for now. To these individuals I ask when do they propose we begin to stand up for our principles? Will waiting a month or year to fight for our beliefs somehow advance the cause of conservatism? Will it help America for us to sit back and let Obama push his agenda forward unopposed?
It seems to me that being silent and acquiescent now further empowers Obama, and further entrenches this notion that big government liberalism is somehow acceptable. Its the antithesis of our individual liberty and freedom, and it requires men and women of good conscience to step forward, take action and oppose it vigorously, said Russo.
And that's the good news.
what i want to know is... who was pushing this bs? expose them along with 0bama
Well I can guess one -- starts with an "M" -- ends in a "n" has a "c" in it....
Can you say, John McCain and Lindsey Graham??
54.40 or fight!
Good start. Just what CONSERVATIVES need..a drum beat to get the point across and to just maybe wake up those in Congress who are Republican..otherwise may they be out of a job.
I'd like to ask that of the RNC and the Senate Republicans. Worthless bunch of butt kissers.
We talk about the Dems and their appeasement approach to our enemies. They could take lessons from the Republicans. If you can picture BO petting his dog, and the dog responding by licking his own privates, then swap the dog for a Senate Republican. Pretty accurate picture of the next four years.
Right on. Time to impeach Hussein effective January 21, 2009
I hope not. Besides sites like FR, conservative groups are our last line of defense since the PUBS in Congress are effectively neutered.
Thank God someone hasdn’t lost leave of their sense.
Fellow Freepers: This PAC is very good. I’ve contributed and written to them many times. If you are feeling frustrated about what we Conservatives can do to help our cause, I would suggest offering support to this group.
Kudos to them for coming out with this ad. Hopefully, it is just the beginning of the Resistance efforts of those of us who are part of Hannity’s Conservatives in Exile!
Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled! (but first, we have to get through the next couple of days).
I agree and am dismayed that nationally known conservatives—to include Sarah Palin—are allowing The Marxist Onada to pursue his agenda with little or no meaningful opposition.
Good for them. They need big names.
They have one. Howard Kaloogian is their chairman, their biggest name identity. He is no slouch—started Recall Gray Davis, which was successful.
Where was this opposition during Bush's term??
