President Obama may not be on the ballot this year, but he is having an election-inspired existential crisis. Democrats want nothing to do with him, and his failed leadership is directly to blame for rocket explosions.
The Washington Post reports that watching Democrats across the country try to dissociate themselves from the president has hurt Obama’s feelings:
Unlike John Fogerty, Tilden Hagan is a Senator’s son, and, shockingly, things have worked out pretty well for him. By sheer coincidence, after his mom voted for the 2009 stimulus package, a company Tilden Hagan co-owned with his future brother-in-law was awarded a taxpayer-funded contract to install solar panels. The company overseeing the project, JDC Manufacturing, was, by sheer coincidence, owned by Tilden’s dad. The deal appears to have violated JDC’s own conflict-of-interest policy. Oh well.
A Super PAC run by former aides to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) is running a radio ad in North Carolina that accuses GOP Senate candidate Thom Tillis of helping to “cause the shooting death of Trayvon Martin,” the Florida teenager who was killed under controversial circumstances in early 2012.
President Obama is not running for reelection this year, but his presidency is “on the line,” warns a Democratic Party flyer making its way around Georgia.
Hillary Clinton is a grandmother, in case you hadn’t heard, and one of the benefits of having a new grandchild is it provides an easy hook for a political stump speech. Hillary Clinton has already mastered this process, as you can see is this video from a campaign rally for Kay Hagan in North Carolina.
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Shortly before Kay Hagan took the stage at the Charlotte Convention Center on Saturday, the loudspeakers blared Bruce Springsteen’s aptly titled Democratic Party theme song “We Take Care of Our Own.”
Shortly before Hillary Clinton took the stage Saturday at a campaign event for Kay Hagan, a woman decked out in Hillary swag traversed the crowd informing attendees that the professional public speaker was about to have a birthday. (Clinton turned 67 on Sunday.) The plan was for everyone to sing Happy Birthday after Hagan introduced her guest of honor. It didn’t really work out, however, because Hillary just kept talking, and enough people in the crowd reflexively cheered after every sentence to drown out the singing.
Texas Governor Rick Perry and professional public speaker Hillary Clinton both held rallies in North Carolina over the past two days for their respective party’s Senate candidate in what is shaping up to be a close race that has already attracted its fair share of 2016 contenders.
Embarrassingly for Clinton, she drew a significantly smaller crowd in Charlotte (population 800,000) than Perry was able to attract in Smithfield (population 12,000).
Senator Kay Hagan (D., N.C.) is the most awkward candidate running in 2014, a Free Beacon analysis has found.
