Associated Press White House Correspondent Julie Pace said that Democrats running for reelection are doing everything in their power to avoid being seen with President Obama:
…Democrats purposefully do not want visible help from the White House, they don’t want the President coming to their state, what they do want is him to raise money.
Pace appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Thursday.
Obama has become a liability for Democrats as his favorability ratings are hitting new lows almost every month, thanks in large part to the botched rollout of Obamacare, as well as to the growing realization that it is unworkable, and damaging to both the quality of health care and the economy in this country.
Alex Sink learned what happens when you associate yourself too closely with the President, when she lost a special congressional election in Florida on Tuesday, despite outspending her opponent by over $1 million in a district that Obama won twice.
No matter which way the DNC tries to spin her loss, the fact is that it was a major setback, which even the normally pro-Obama mainstream media were forced to admit.
