Oh My… Obama Lapdog Claire McCaskill Will Skip DNC Convention (Updated)

Poor Claire McCaskill. She’s already paying the price for being Barack Obama’s little buddy.


Liberal Senator Claire McCaskill may skip the DNC Convention.
The St. Louis Beacon reported, via The Weekly Standard:

McCaskill had missed the state Democratic convention several weeks ago because her mother has been ill. She did make the party’s biggest fundraising event of the year, the Jefferson-Jackson dinner, last Friday.

McCaskill also skipped the 2004 Democratic presidential convention in Boston because she was engaged in a spirited contest for governor. McCaskill was in a difficult political position that year because she was challenging a fellow Democrat already holding the office, then-Gov. Bob Holden.

The national convention that year was held in late July, just weeks before Missouri’s 2004 gubernatorial primary, in which McCaskill defeated Holden. She lost that November to the Republican nominee, Matt Blunt.

At least half a dozen Democrats have bailed on the DNC Convention already this year. Obama is just too toxic to be seen with.

UPDATE: Senator Claire McCaskill confirmed this afternoon that she won’t be attending the DNC Convention this year.

    Claire McCaskill’s campaign manager says Claire’s “schedule for September was still in flux.”

    Oh Claire, say it ain’t so — There’s an open wet bar, don’t forget.

    But seriously, we know Claire’s worried — She should be. She’s going to have to re-invent herself if she’s going to win.

    Who knows? In the next few months, we may learn that she is part Cherokee.

    What an example of a true statesman. She’s obviously a woman of rock solid convictions. This bold action will change many hearts and minds. Meh. She’s got nothing. Just throwing stuff out there, hoping for a non-existent miracle to save her. Gonna need a huge bucket to catch the liberal tears this year.

    Doesn’t matter what she skips still going to vote her obama loving a$$ out of office come this Nov.. Along with her lover of Communism obama.

    Obama prepping thousands of lawyers for election


    President Barack Obama’s campaign is recruiting legions of lawyers to handle disputes that may arise from now through Election Day.

    Thousands of attorneys and support staffers have agreed to aid in the effort, providing legal support that appears to be unrivaled by Republicans or precedent. Obama’s campaign says it is particularly concerned about the implementation of new voter ID laws, challenges to voters and the handling of voter registration.

    Obama legal counsel Robert Bauer contends that the GOP has pursued measures to prevent Obama from repeating his get-out-the-vote success of four years ago.

    Republicans have legal teams of their own as well as a conservative organization that is training thousands of people to serve as poll watchers. The GOP says it is concerned about people voting fraudulently.

    The 70% vote in favor of Prop C rejecting Obamacare was the end of her political career. She is just too chained to Obamacare to survive that. I don’t expect her to go down without a fight, but it’s all over for her but the crying.

    I can’t wait for the McCaskill-Joker posters to start appearing downtown again. Heck, I may just print up a few and grab some tape.

    More democrats will “retire”

    Time with “family”. This is

    going to be sweet.

    Again house veto proof

    majority. Senate 60 seats

    Or more, and WH in a


    Powder is dry

  • how dumbed down are we bg

    If you remember, Claire only won the election over Jim Talent because the St. Louis DNC had one of their judges hold open St. Louis polling places in order to allow everyone to vote. So ACORN jumped into action with blank ballots and pulled Claire’s chestnuts out of the fire with who knows how many fraudlent ballots.

    This November there will not be enough false ballots to save her ass from getting her walking papers by the people of Missouri. She knows her ass is toast and desperately, she is hoping we forget her past voting record.

    Not a chance, Claire is gone

    Too focused on the economy? Whack jobs doesn’t begin to cover that!

    There are currently 23 million Americans out of work, not counting the ones who gave up looking long ago or ran out of benefits or the teens who would love a summer job that doesn’t exist. Meanwhile, Obama intends to issue work permits to illegal aliens in numbers that by some estimates reach 3 million illegals to jump straight to the head of the line.

    49% – yes, FORTY NINE PERCENT – of all American households receive some form of government benefit

    There are currently more Americans receiving Food Stamps, reserved for the poorest of the poor, than at any other time in the history of the program. There are 3X as many people on Food Stamps as there were when The None took office.

    Grocery prices are sky-rocketing. Fuel is coming down a bit, but is still 2X the price that it was on the day that Obama took office. Electricity costs are set to go over the moon as the current regime closes down all of the coal-fired electrical generating stations in the nation and blow up hydroelectric dams because they “interfere with the salmon.”

    Detroit has had so many home foreclosures in the last four years that they are bulldozing huge swathes of neighborhoods. Millions of homes have been foreclosed nationwide.

    Too focused on the economy? On the contrary, there is no other subject worth talking about. Everything else is a mere distraction.

    Welcome To The New One World Order, Hmm, Hmm, Hmm, 😡

    “what the fascist left have been aiming for is to “equate” good with evil..
    that’s the only way they can appease their conscience in the face of the
    harsh reality they are trying to escape from because it does not fit in with
    their ideological utopian matrix.. if there is no good vs evil, then all is good
    even if [the] all is evil..” – bg

    Maybe McCaskill finally realized that Obama really did say that Obama wanted to fundamentally transform America…..


  • how dumbed down are we bg


    or, maybe it’s just a false flag in order to not only gain attention
    (which she regularly does via GP), but when, either by her own
    will, or executive order, she attends the gig,..

    /not too far fetched sarc/


  • frank smith

    McCaskill is finished anyway!

  • Robert in StL

    Claire might as well go to the DNC’s convention, it’s not like she’s got a hope in hell of winning the election in November. Sooner we vote her and Nixon the hell out of office – and preferably run them out of the state to boot – the better, IMO.

  • Blue Hen

    Perhaps if he reinstated the mini-bar priveleges………….

  • Finncrisp

    Claire should fly her plane around to neighboring states and shuttle as many as possible to Charlotte. She can charge the gas to her reelection campaign, plus her own personal services surcharge. Could be a big money maker for her. Maybe cover the personal property tax, and a comfortable retirement.

    But alas, she was for Obama before she was against him. Curtains, no matter what!

    Message sent, do you understand?

  • John Galt

    I’m thinking a “Caption This Picture” contest Ms. Claire !

  • Too late, Claire. People are paying attention. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

  • democraps suck

    The problem here is that while they say they won’t be there it’s because they want to get re-elected themselves….they will still vote for the Marxist mooslum guaranteed

  • JR

    Say – Weren’t Claire and Barack involved with closing a Dodge truck plant in Missouri, moving the jobs overseas?

    … what was that? Something about chickens… roosting… coming home…

    will they be discussing any of the following at the DNC convention?? /s/

    “We are living a moment that may be
    similar to (Adolf) Hitler’s rise to power.”

    Look who’s tied to new Muslim Brotherhood president

    unfortunately (#28), no surprise (#23)..


  • radioone

    “TIME Complains” Time…what are they down to? About 18 pages of DNC talking points and one or two Progressive and Geico ads??

  • a “hoodwink” the voter campaign ploy, republicans have been doing it for years.

  • dwillmore

    Maybe she needs help with the plane fair. I think the Mo GOP should publicly offer her a gift.

    Can’t wait to line up to vote you out in November, Claire!

    Say – Weren’t Claire and Barack involved with shutting down both the Chevy and Dodge dealers in my hometown, putting hundreds of people out of work, and killing sales of both brands in my town??? (My town used to be FULL of Chevy trucks and Dodge vans. Now, not so much.)

  • Limousine Barry

    Let me be clear, although my campaign resembles a traveling circus and I am the clown in the center ring, I see no reason for Clair McCaskill to abandon me.

    I can only conclude that Democrat McCaskill thinks the 0bama ship is leaking like the Titanic or that I am a purse thief – either way I suck.

    My limousine is over-heating and David Axelrod is in the back seat. I will stay one thing. I don’t like Claire McCaskill and I never have. She is a Typical White Person who clings to her campaign funds and will not give them to me. I cannot say any more. Good day.
