It looks like some Democrats are so desperate to win the midterm elections that they’re willing to distance themselves from President Obama.
Some Democrats are so desperate to win the mid-term elections and retain their white-knuckle hold on Congress that they’re stabbing President Obama in the back.
It’s true. A few ads from some Democrats running for reelections are trying to do their best to distance themselves from President Obama and his policies, particularly with the healthcare reform.
“A television ad from Virginia Democrat Glenn Nye, who’s running for reelection to the U.S. House, has an announcer explaining that ‘sometimes the right path is not always the easy path,’ going on to document the many times Nye voted against the Democratic agenda — including healthcare.
And longtime Texas Democrat Chet Edwards, also up for reelection to the House, ran an ad in which the announcer intones, ‘When President Obama and Nancy Pelosi pressured Chet Edwards, Chet stood up to them and voted no against their trillion dollar health care bill, and no to Cap and Trade,” reported FOX News
FOX News article.
Of course, the mid-term elections are breaking out the ugly in a lot of candidates, including desperation. For example, Republican Sharron Angle was caught on tape
My SodaHead Column trying to make a deal with her independent opponent Jon Scott Ashjian to drop out of the Nevada U.S. senate race so she can have a better chance at beating Democratic juggernaut Harry Reid.
But distancing yourself from the president? Sure, some Republicans did the same thing themselves when George W. Bush was in office. However, this isn’t the unity that the president had hoped to bring for this country.
So, what do you call a Democrat who is against President Obama and other Democratic big wigs like Nancy Pelosi and healthcare reform? A Republican.
Or a Democrat in elephant’s clothing once the election is over, of course.
