Red-state Dems rip president
It’s becoming the in thing to do: tell the truth about Obama.
Check it out:
There wasn’t much praise for President Obama coming from vulnerable 2014 Senate Democrats immediately after he finished his State of the Union address Tuesday.
But then again, there wasn’t supposed to be.
Red state Democrats instead used the speech to take shots at Obama on issues close to their constituencies, a strategy the party looks to be embracing to hold on to its Senate majority.
Sen. Mary Landrieu blasted Obama for not mentioning the Keystone oil pipeline. “I’m disappointed,” the Louisiana Democrat said.
Sen. Mark Pryor didn’t mince words either. Perhaps the nation’s most endangered Senate Democrat, he said Obama was “heavy on rhetoric but light on specifics about how we can move our country forward.”
