David called it last week, and now the Democrats have delivered. The Democratic National Committee today released new ads starring Joe Barton (R-Texas) and his BP apology.
The ad, "How Republicans Would Govern," feature's Barton's now infamous "I apologize" line, as well as several other Republicans who have been critical of the government's treatment of BP. The ad will run on national cable this week.
