Landrieu, Grimes, Demo Senate candidates deceiving voters about Obama
Written by 

obama-isaac-LandrieuOh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.  Sir Walter Scott (Marmion, 1808)

It is election time again and U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and most of the other Democrat Senate candidates are campaigning on a moderate platform that does not correspond to their liberal voting record.

 

Democrats know that the country does not support their liberal agenda, so they are desperately trying to deceive the voters before the crucial mid-term elections. This strategy is obvious since the top Democrat, President Barack Obama, has been missing from the campaign trail.

While he will not be on the November ballot, the President’s agenda should be the top issue in every race. In fact, the President agrees with this assessment as he noted in a recent speech that his “policies are on the ballot -- every single one of them."

With the realization that this election is a referendum on his policies, it is amazing that, only three weeks until Election Day, the President has not made one campaign appearance for any of the Democrat Party Senate candidates.

The balance of power in the U.S. Senate will be decided on November 4, so it is clear that Barack Obama is more than an interested observer. While the President has been hanging out at fundraisers with Hollywood stars like Julia Roberts and big donors like Rich Richman, he has not been at any campaign events with the standard bearers of his own party.

It is also clear that practically every Democrat Senate candidate has asked President Obama to stay away. They know he is politically toxic. A recent Gallup poll gave the President an anemic 39% approval rating. In Louisiana, it is even lower at only 34%.

Therefore, it is easy to understand why Senator Landrieu and the other Democrat Senate candidates have not held one campaign event with the President. He is absent from their campaigns, yet they wholeheartedly support his liberal agenda. In the case of Senator Landrieu, she has voted with the President an astonishing 97% of the time.

In a conservative state like Louisiana, Landrieu’s voting record is an abomination. She supports abortion rights, amnesty for illegal immigrants, higher taxes, the Affordable Care Act, gun control and liberal judicial nominees. On every one of these issues, she is on the opposite side from the people of Louisiana.

It is a credit to her skill as a politician that she has been able to win three statewide elections with such a liberal voting record.

In this campaign, her opponents have obviously tied Obama’s record to the Senator. Instead of embracing the President’s agenda, Senator Landrieu focuses on the 3% of the issues, such as oil and gas drilling and the Keystone pipeline, in which she opposes the President.

This same strategy is being used by the other Democrat Senate candidates. In fact, in Kentucky, Democrat U.S. Senate candidate Alison Grimes not only refuses to campaign with the President, but she also refuses to admit whether she voted for him in 2008 and 2012.

If President Obama was popular with the voters, Grimes and Landrieu and all of the other Democrat Senate candidates would be campaigning with him and loudly proclaiming their previous votes for him and their support of his agenda.

Today, they are engaged in a clear deception that voters will hopefully realize before Election Day.

If elected, these so-called moderate Democrats will vote for Senator Harry Reid to retain his position as Majority Leader and will, once again, support the President’s legislative agenda.

Is it any wonder that Americans do not trust politicians?

If these Democrats cannot be honest with voters during the campaign, they will certainly not be honest if they are elected to the U.S. Senate. 

It is time voters across the country demanded truth in political advertising and campaigning.

The truth is this election is all about President Obama. Voters who support his agenda should re-elect Landrieu and vote for other liberal candidates like Alison Grimes. Voters, who are opposed to the President’s liberal and unpopular agenda, have only one choice, vote against the Democrats.
