We here at the BrokenCountry have a few questions for President Obama. How much of the taxpayers money is President Obama spending to go to Massachusetts and stump for Coakley? Is the tab being picked up by the Democratic National Committee? What other pressing issues is he ignoring to make sure that the democrats maintain a “super majority” in the senate? Why is this such an important issue to Obama?
These are just a few questions that I want asked and answered. I think this may be a first. I am probably wrong, because I am wrong quite frequently (but at least I can admit it) but I cannot remember a sitting president traveling to stump for a party candidate in a mid-term election.
It should also be noted that, should Coakley lose the race, it will look incredibly bad for President Obama. Obama is pulling out all the stops for Coakley, and if she doesn’t come up the winner in Massachusetts, a state where virtually every congressman sent to Washington is a democrat, it will be incredibly embarrassing and a virtual rebuke of Obama’s liberal agenda.
By going to Massachusetts, Obama is almost condemning the democrat party should Coakley lose. House and senate democrats will have no choice but to turn their back on Obama’s agenda if his presence cannot produce a victory for Coakley. Could it be that Obama is so egocentric that he thinks that his mere presence makes it a slam dunk for Coakley? Even after the Copenhagen, Olympic Games debacle?
One can only wonder. We see it as a republican victory even is Scott Borwn loses the election. Think about it. Here is the late Ted Kennedy’s senate seat. A seat not held by a republican since 1955, and there is a good chance that a republican is going to replace a Kennedy in one of the most liberal states in the union.
The liberal naysayers and Obamatrons will be out in force with either outcome of the election. If Coakley wins, the libs will call it a victory for Obama and his agenda. If Brown wins, they will say it was because of republicans running a smear campaign and spending millions of dollars in a state that they would normally ignore.
But not a word will be said about the expense of sending a sitting president, in Air Force One, with his three support aircraft, a second Air Force One as a decoy for the terrorists, three hundred people that make up the presidential detail, military escort including aircraft, and the press pool to Massachusetts to stump for a senate seat.
