Democrats Aren't Distancing Themselves From Obama... They're Openly Dissing Obama

Democrats just aren't distancing themselves from Barack Obama, in many close Senate races they're throwing him under the bus... one candidate went so far as to say that he's going to "bang" Obama "over the head."

(WND) The conventional wisdom espoused by the mainstream media is Democrats polling poorly in this year’s midterm elections are distancing themselves from President Obama, a sentiment captured vividly in an editorial in the Los Angeles Times Thursday describing how, "Democratic candidates are racing away from Obama like Wile E. Coyote running from a lighted stick of dynamite."

In fact, a closer look reveals, rather than running away from him, many Democrats as running against the president, often lambasting Obama with scathing rhetoric one might expect to come from only Republicans and almost uniformly putting as much daylight between themselves and his policies as possible.

This is especially true in key races that will decide control of the Senate, as illustrated by recent quotes from Democratic candidates.

"Let me tell you, the White House, when they look down the front lawn the last person they want to see coming is me," warned Democrat Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado during a debate.

Sen. Mark Begich, the Democratic incumbent from Alaska, at least admitted to voting for Obama, but quickly added in a newspaper interview that his vote was “irrelevant” because, "The president’s not relevant. He’s gone in two years." But he didn’t stop there, promising the Washington Post, "I’ll be a thorn in his [posterior]," adding, "There’s times when I’m a total thorn, you know, and he doesn’t appreciate it." Going even further, the senator insisted he "took on Obama" to fight for oil drilling in Alaska and would "bang him (the president) over the head a few times" on the need to drill.
