If ObamaCare Was So Great, Why Are No Dems Running Ads In Support?

I suppose they took Nancy Pelosi’s advice and read it after they passed it, therefore

A handful of House Democrats are making health care reform an election year issue – by running against it.

At least five of the 34 House Democrats who voted against their party’s health care reform bill are highlighting their “no” votes in ads back home. By contrast, party officials in Washington can’t identify a single House member who’s running an ad boasting of a “yes” vote – despite the fact that 219 House Democrats voted in favor of final passage in March.

Perhaps the legislation just wasn’t all that, eh?

One Democratic strategist said it would be “political malfeasance” to run such an ad now.

Let’s define “malfeasance,” shall we?

the performance by a public official of an act that is legally unjustified, harmful, or contrary to law; wrongdoing (used esp. of an act in violation of a public trust).

Sooooooooooo, this strategist is saying it would be beyond wrong to discuss the vote these Democrats made in support of ObamaCare (or government health care, if you will)? Or, perhaps he/she is saying that voting for ObamaCare was in and off itself an act that was harmful and/or contrary to law?

Of course, Democrats are trying to spin their complete retreat from discussing their votes as something else. Yet, it seems that Democrats are completely unwilling to discuss any of their legislative “accomplishments”, since the majority of Americans find those accomplishments to be malfeasance, hence the reason Democrats are going to be smacked with the cold mackerel of reality come November 2nd.
