What's missing from Sen. Bennet's TV ad

When Pres. Obama came to Denver to help raise $675,000 for U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet in February, he said, "He hasn't perfected the seven-second soundbite. He's never even made a TV ad. Heaven forbid. And he's facing re-election in a tough political climate."

Well, Bennet has now made an ad, titled "Wake Up," and is reportedly spending $300,000 to deploy it on cable and broadcast TV in Colorado, according to The Huffington Post.

The problem is, the Congressional reform issues Bennet chose to talk about are largely symbolic and have little to do with the economic concerns of working people.

Appointed to his seat in January 2009, Sen. Bennet signed on to a federal spending binge and a health-care reform upheaval led by the Obama Administration. Why won't he advertise that?
