Campaign Ads Running 3-to-1 Against Obamacare...

...among Democrats.

Yes, I linked this story in another post, but it's too delicious not to repeat.  This from the party who's top strategist brashly defied Republicans to "make his day" and run against Obamacare after the bill passed.  Yes, the very party that assured us that voters would fall in love with the legislation just as soon as it became law. 

Welcome to the your new reality, Mr. President:

Democratic candidates are spending three times more advertising against the health reform law than they are in support of it.

Since the beginning of Congress’s August recess, Democratic candidates have poured $930,000 into ads deriding the health overhaul but just $300,000 in pro-reform spots, according to Evan Tracey at Kantar Media.

In addition, at least one Democrat has signed onto a Republican discharge petition demanding the repeal of Obamacare.  Given the Democratic dogma-bucking stampede toward extending the Bush tax cuts for the rich--in addition to the middle class (altogether now, What Bush tax cuts for the middle class?)--one wonders if health care might be the next domino to fall.  Fingers crossed.
