Another Prominent Democrat Rides The Obama Rejection Wave
What do former President Bill Clinton, Mayor Cory Booker, former Governor Ed Rendell, and every other Democrat in non deep-Liberal parts of the country have in common?
They want nothing to do with Obama.
Obama’s failed Socialist policies and feckless “leadership” have made him a national pariah among members of his own party. Even Obama’s own surrogate has rejected his Socialist talking points. Now, another one to ride this Obama rejection wave is Arizona’s Democratic U.S. Senate candidate, Richard Carmona.
According to Free Republic,
Democratic Senate hopeful Richard Carmona distanced himself Monday from President Barack Obama, saying he had “no connection” with the man who urged him to run for office.
His comments come months after it was first reported the president personally called the former U.S. surgeon general and asked him to get into the race.
“Let me set the record straight, OK,” Carmona told 3TV. “I have no connections to President Obama.” …
This marks the second time in as many weeks a high-profile Arizona Democrat has publicly shied away from a president who has become increasingly unpopular in this Republican-leaning state.
During a debate two weeks ago, Ron Barber, who is trying to replace retired Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, declined to say if he would vote for the Democratic president. Barber later issued a written statement clarifying that he would vote for Obama.
Put together it appears Democrats are becoming uncomfortable with Obama in an election year. Both the Carmona and Barber races are very important for the president as well as the Democratic Party.
It’s not good when even Obama’s hand-picked candidates are denying association with him. No wonder all Obama does anymore is fundraise. He’s going to get clobbered and the rest of his party knows it. No one wants to be attached to a loser.
