Running Scared - Senate Democrats flee from Obama
Free Beacon ^ | 1/30/14 | David Rutz

Posted on 01/30/2014 3:23:30 PM PST by Libloather

Vulnerable Senate Democrats in several states are running for re-election and away from President Obama in 2014.

Sen. Mark Pryor (D., Ark.) is facing a difficult fight against Republican challenger Rep. Tom Cotton, with Pryor saddled particularly by his support for Obamacare. The president’s health care law is deeply unpopular there, and Pryor has done his best to distance himself, pronouncing himself “disappointed” with Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night. A vulnerable Sen. Mary Landrieu (D., La.) also said she was displeased with Obama’s speech, particularly for not tackling the issue of the Keystone Pipeline.

Sen. Mark Begich (D., Ala.) said flatly he did not want Obama to campaign with him as he seeks re-election in Alaska, and Sen. Mark Udall (D., Colo.) repeatedly dodged CNN reporter Dana Bash’s questions about whether he’d welcome Obama’s assistance on the trail.

In North Carolina, Sen. Kay Hagan (D., N.C.)...

Hussein like to talk about people going after bankers with pitchforks.

With DisasterCare, there just may be folks running after Democrats just like that.

The Democrats like to push lies.

Reality is going to come around.

If the GOP Senate had a grain of sense they would be busy tying Rats to Obamacare instead of trying to force amnesty on us.

What cracks me up is that these are the people who wrote the Affordable Care Act- and yet they get none of the blame for ‘Obamacare’.

Obama just told congress to write it, as usual he did nothing. For once he did nothing abd got the blame instead of doing nothing and getting the credit.

Smart of the Dems to tell the media to call it ‘Obamacare’ LOL!

wasn't there some news today of Mark Udalls son being arrested on drug charges? could that arrest be related to Udalls having dissed Obama ?

Sen. Kay Hagan (D., N.C.) was a no-show when Obama visited her state.

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D., La.) said she was displeased with Obama’s SOTU speech, particularly for not tackling the issue of the Keystone Pipeline.

==================================================

The Demmies got the heebie jeebies about looking chummy w/ Obama. Is this the reason why?

As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act :

OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if you’ve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All I’m going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. You’ll still have choice of doctor.”

Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.

LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1940's ERA EUROPE Obama And The Dumbos marching in lockstep. The persistent Dumbocrat drumbeat ---- in obeisance to Obama ---- kept ringing reassuringly in our ears: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."

SEN. KAY HAGAN (D-N.C.) on ObamaCare: ‘People who have insurance they’re happy with can keep it’ “We need to support the private insurance industry so that people who have insurance they’re happy with can keep it while also providing a backstop option for people without access to affordable coverage.” (“Republicans Vent As Other Compromise Plans Get Aired,” National Journal’s Congress Daily, 6/18/09)

SEN. MARY LANDRIEU (D-La.): “If you like the insurance that you have, you’ll be able to keep it.” (MSNBC’s Hardball, 12/16/09)

SEN. MARK BEGICH (D-Alaska): “If you got a doctor now, you got a medical professional you want, you get to keep that. If you have an insurance program or a health care policy you want of ideas, make sure you keep it. That you can keep who you want.” (Sen. Begich, Townhall Event, 7/27/09)
