WASHINGTON (Reuters) Spooked by President Barack Obamas low approval ratings, some of his fellow Democrats in tough November election races have begun their campaigns by distancing themselves from the White House and asserting their independence from Obamas policies.
In what amounts to a survival-first strategy among embattled Democrats crucial to the partys effort to keep control of the Senate, some candidates in conservative states Obama lost in 2012 are aggressively criticising his health care, energy and regulatory policies.
The group includes three incumbent senators, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Mark Begich of Alaska, as well as Natalie Tennant, who is seeking to replace retiring Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia.

I may be wrong ,English is not my first language. so forgive me but....
Is not TURNCOAT,a synonym for LIBERAL DEMOCRAT ?
I said that to a liberal once and we have not spoken since.
They have voted in lockstep with the slug and now is the time for accountability.
“Is not TURNCOAT,a synonym for LIBERAL DEMOCRAT ?”
Only if he/she use to be a conservative.
Too late assholes.
You can run, but you can’t hide.
I would ask them if they have bothered to read the AFA that they voted for yet.
Soetoro is the kiss of death.
That'd be nice and all if the rinos were also trying to distance themselves from obama.
Can you imagine?!
Picture the reaction if Dick Cheney had said this.
Picture the reaction if Ted Cruz had said this.
“Ask these democrats for examples of how they asserted their “independence” from Obama during the past 5 years.”
Of course, they can’t.
They have a strategy that will make them angels again with the electorate; Republicans and George Bush will be the gremlins, the rich will once again be confirmed as mean and cruel, and Progressives will march into the House with increased numbers, along with retention of the Senate.
This trash is food for fools with IQs under 65.
The RATs have clearly demonstrated who and what they are.
Stooges for the Manchurian Candidate that continues to hurt Americans and destroy our country.
Hello Congress? Hello SCOTUS?
Not spooked enough to turn back 0bamaCare.
Justice will find them all.
Policies they almost uniformly voted for and defended vigorously against evil Tea Party types like Ted Cruz and Michelle Bachmann.
If these voters fall for that crap, then they deserve everything they get.
They wouldn’t act that way if it were Bill Clinton.
Obviously, they are racist.
Apparently there is a large section of the younger side of the LSM who are not “nuanced” enough in their understanding of racism.
They are late to the party.
They are playing catch up
The headline writer is racist. < /sarcasm>
The pubbies could be running with the fact that practically NO Dim up for re-election will stand with 0 or 0sCare. But, no!! They have to help pass Amnesty!
Really, distancing themselves from Obama’s policies? After they vote for almost everything he wanted. Certainly for everything bad for America. Then the smarmy Polosi and gang strutting around DC trying to provoke an incident. Distancing themselves from O’s policies, yeah right.
There are a lot of those. As far as I can tell we have been aborting all the smart babies.
