President Barack Obama on Monday threw his support to Sen. Brian Schatz over Colleen Hanabusa in Hawaii’s Senate race, stepping into a primary that has been divisive for voters in the state where Obama was born.

Obama’s backing could give a critical boost to Schatz in Hawaii, where Obama remains more popular than in most other parts of the U.S. Seven in 10 Hawaii voters chose Obama in 2012. Polls this year show Schatz and Hanabusa are in a competitive race.

“Sen. Schatz is protecting Hawaii’s values and fighting every day on behalf of middle-class families,” Obama said in a statement. “There is no question that Senator Schatz is the right choice to continue delivering for Hawaii.” …

Hawaiians love Obama? I guess they are nuttier than Macadamia Nuts. Of course, if I live on a tropical island and didn’t have to work, I might like him too. I live in Florida and I work, so I don’t.

Bet he couldn't get a job delivering pizzas.

You talking about Obama? Or Shatz? I bet both aren't qualified for delivering pizzas, thou.

I accept the word of his family and his own bio - therefore he aint no Hawaiian and likely not even a class attending graduate. He is however a very accomplished liar that he proves daily, Expect he carries this talent to his golf game but that is just a game. The survival of our Republic is a most pressing problem to those of us who care. Rant off

The democrat’s war on women continues, as Obama sides with the guy over the problably more -qualified woman.

For what purpose? We are not seriously challenging the seat. And if we were Hanabusa would be who the rats would want to nominate.

IIRC, Brian Shatz was the election commissioner for Hawaii who had requested that the DNC and Nancy Pelosi update the election certification for Sen. Barack Obama in 2008. It was changed to state that Obama was eligible under the Constitution. Shatz was removed by the Governor during the proceeding as he may have learned more was wanted at the time. He's made no public comment since perhaps ‘earning’ this presidential endorsement.

Obama’s support should be like the kiss of death. He is going to keep going farther down the tubes as time goes on.

Loretta Fuddy should have only been so lucky as to have gotten an endorsement from the Usurper.

Perhaps Charles Djou could take advantage of this. He hasn’t announced his decision yet.

Abercrombie knows a lot of stuff about Zero that we don’t, so Zero’s going to do whatever is asked of him. I hope if Duke Aiona takes out Abercrombie, he gets armies of lawyers to figure out what the hell has been going on. Lingle disgracefully seemed to aid the Democrats in the coverup of Zero’s record and history.

He did, he’s running for CD-1. The smart call, even though I’d be nicer to have him in the Senate, his chances of winning the House seat are much higher.

Time after time Obama pays the kickbacks for people who shut their mouths and lie for him.
