Using his own words against him, the Progressive Change Campaign
Committee is airing an ad in which Obama gives a campaign speech
insisting on a public option
he has now abandoned. The group hopes to pressure Sen. Russ Feingold of

"President Obama should frankly feel ashamed that he promised
Americans a public option, got people to believe real change was
possible, and then never truly fought for it - instead, pushing a
mandate that he specifically campaigned against," said Adam Green of Progressive Change Campaign Committee.
