Just a few short weeks ago, President Obama made an announcement that even his cohorts in the liberal media wished he never said – that every single one of his policies are up for election this fall.
Now the President has gone a step further in bringing Democrat candidates down, saying that all of those individuals who are trying desperately to distance themselves from him -see Alison Lundergan Grimes – are only doing so to fool people in states that weren’t smart enough to vote for him in the first place.
Obama spoke to MSNBC’s Al Sharpton, suggesting that Democrats were just pretending to not embrace him because the Republicans would use it against them. He then gave those candidates the kiss of death, and what is sure to become an instant GOP soundbite played right up until Election Day.
Obama claims that all those Democrats trying to run away from him “are all folks who vote with me” and are “supporters of me.” He would also add that every one of them have “supported my agenda in Congress.”
Take a listen …
A fairly recent Fox News poll indicates that on a personal level, only 24% of Americans believe their family is better off than when Obama took over for George Bush in 2008.
Democrat candidates are well aware that Americans believe wholeheartedly the nation is moving in the wrong direction under President Obama, and they’ve had enough. That’s why they’re all jumping ship from this administration.
The President however, keeps putting a hitch in those plans, placing a foot squarely in his mouth every time he links them to an unpopular agenda.
