Skip to comments.Somehow, Joe Biden fails to mention Robin Carnahan

Missouri's secretary of state, Carnahan is running for U.S. Senate in one of the most high-profile races in the nation. She faces an uphill battle against seven-term Congressman Roy Blunt, a well-funded Republican from Springfield who has a clear lead in most polls.
But before Biden took the stage, neither of them mentioned the one Democrat Carnahan who is so integral to the party's chances of holding on to the U.S. Senate in November.
Neither did Biden. The vice president was fired up. He all but guaranteed that Democrats would be the big winners on Nov. 3.
"Were it not illegal, I'd make book on it," Biden said.
Biden praised Senate leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He even brought up Republican Senate candidates Rand Paul of Kentucky and Sharron Angle of Nevada, the poster children for what Biden called the Republican Tea Party.
But no Carnahan. Not once.
Such consistency in message or lack thereof is no accident.
Carnahan is stinging from Blunt's first big ad, the one showing President Barack Obama next to her at an event in Kansas City, mentioning how much he needs her vote to help accomplish his agenda.
And then Thursday happened. On the day Democrats arrived in St. Louis, Carnahan reversed course on the very Bush tax cuts that were lampooned in several speeches at Union Station. Carnahan now says she supports extending those cuts, even those that go to the "millionaires and billionaires" derided by Sebelius in her speech.
Therein lies the Missouri Democrat's dilemma.

If Biden were any stupider, they’d have to water him everyday.
The Vice-President is genuinely a dual personality, half-buffoonish, half creepy.
Hey,Biden has the mental agility of a soup dish.What did you expect from the guy?
OK. Where is that old vid of Biden singing about The Villages?
These days, it seems like lots of rats besides the above booby are trying to
distance themselves from Plugs, Nasty, Dirty Harry and the Wee Wee
Further proof that liberalism is dysfunctional by default. It doesn’t work anywhere, anyhow.
And now it’s time for these bas***** to face the music.
There are undercurrents happening. These people are just too supremely confident...Reminds me of the deathcare debacle, that fix was in long before ‘passage’. They have shown what they are capable of.
A bullet in the head is too good for these people. Ok post may be pulled but let’s face it, dynamite isn’t going to dislodge these marxists.
Why should they worry. The ballot boxes are all ready stuffed in their favor.
I too live in Columbia.
Agree with u on Blunt.
Maybe Hugo has sent in a plane with ballot forms, like in Honduras...
As a side note, I saw the first anti-Carnahan ad last night. It was great! Whoever did it, keep up the good work!
NO MORE CARNAHANS!
