It seems that a growing number of Democrats don’t want to be seen with Barack Obama this election season.
Nancy Pelosi probably wouldn’t mind, but her constituents pick up C-SPAN through their tinfoil hats anyway, so seeing her with the biggest f-up since Millard Fillmore probably wouldn’t bother them much. I mean, Weeee! Hale–Bopp sighting.
But just about everyone else is running from the President in their bids for reelection or Democratic nominations to the House and Senate. Not the least of which is Obama heretofore @$$hole buddy Mark Udall.
Colorado Senator Mark Udall votes with the president 99% of the time and worked hard for his reelection in 2012, but for some reason now, he won’t be seen with him at his own fundraiser in Denver.
Citing “last minute votes and legislative activity”, Udall canceled plans Wednesday to appear at a fundraiser in Colorado with Obama. Another possible reason? Obama’s 54% disapproval rating in Colorado.
This morning, Udall joined Senate Democrats at a Capitol Hill news conference on the Hobby Lobby decision, which indicates he finds pushing the Democrats’ phony #WarOnWoman election year narrative more helpful to him than attending his own fundraiser in Colorado with the president.
Obama is in Denver to participate in the fundraising luncheon hosted by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and the Udall campaign. He also found time to deliver yet another speech about the economy (ugh) so the taxpayers could pick up the tab for the trip.
In May, the count was 13 Democrats who were ‘distancing’ themselves from the President, in spite of pleas from party leaders like Bill Clinton to stay with the ship. But even Bill seems to be backpedaling now.
In fact, there hasn’t been a bigger stampede to get away from anyone, since the Hepatitis A outbreak at Ashton Kutcher’s 30th birthday party.
