Skip to comments.(And So It Begins) McCaskill: How I'm not like Obama
Posted on 11/28/2010 5:53:48 PM PST by RobinMasters
Facing a tough re-election campaign in 2012, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) tried to set herself apart from President Obama on Sunday.
Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," McCaskill said that she'd voted against the president on cap-and-trade, the second round of cash-for-clunkers, comprehensive immigration reform and every omnibus bill.
McCaskill said she'd also sometimes disagreed with Obama when he was a senator.
"My record of independence, frankly, stretches back for a long period of time," she said.
When asked to name an issue where Obama had fallen short, the senator said his move into healthcare legislation at a time when he should have been focusing on job creation was "very difficult," and therefore economic issues "didn't get the attention they needed."

Last of the Blue Dog(men).
I’m going to smiling when she’s voted OUT. :)
Common Sense Claire is toast.
I love the fact that the next round of traitors realize that even though it is 2 years out, they need to back pedal starting now.. Time to keep the pressure up.
I wonder how their voting records will look over the next 2 years. They need to be reminded of the tea party presence a couple times a day; they need to sweat.
She was tight as tick with Obama. Missourians were shown her colors and we will be electing a new Senator to represent US not the DNC.
Ask yourself this. Was she given a pass by Pelosi so she could opt out on those votes and save herself?
She will forever be known to me as “Love Pats McCaskill”.
She is an idiot.
You mean Dingy Harry!?!?
Her voting record doesn’t matter..she added one more seat to the Rat majority that wrote the rules and made this all possible. She’s a Rat not an independent. If she really doesn’t like the way things have been going..she can switch parties.
Claire is a ‘Senator’ sir! /s
What, she voted "Absent??????"
Yeah, that one is gonna fly.NOT.
That will be the test won't it. As for the last two years, talk is cheap as hell when it comes to woulda coulda shoulda.
Claire.... you helped with fervor to elect the Marxist! You can call yourself independent, but we see through your lies! Your script came straight off from Barack's teleprompter. Claire, YOU AND OBAMA are ONE!
Stretches clean back to November 2nd, I reckon.
For once, I think the American attention span will last for two whole election cycles. at least one can hope.
Being an idiot does not disqualify you in the Democrat party. Just look at Boxer, Murray, Biden, Franken, Jackson Lee, Waters, etc. etc.
