McCaskill Stiffs Obama in Missouri

Thanks, but no thanks!

I've seen Sen. McCaskill on some of the Sunday shows, and my opinion of her has always been that she is one of the dimmer bulbs on the political scene. But, even she isn't dumb enough to be photographed alongside the walking train wreck that is Barack Obama!

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) won't join President Obama when he visits St. Louis on Tuesday, prompting claims by Republicans that she is avoiding an appearance with the president, whose poll numbers are underwater in Missouri.

The President of the United States, of your own party, comes to your state and, oops! You've got other things to do that day? Yeah. Right!

She was an early supporter of Obama during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary. Yet her chances for reelection hinge on her ability to distance herself from Obama...

So long as she is true to her principles, right? And staying in office does help fund that private jet...

Update : I was wrong. Turns out Claire has a long standing date to shop with Michelle at the local Piggly Wiggly...or wash her hair...or maybe she needs to bury a grandma who just died...again.

H/T Memeorandum


  1. Obama is toxic to Democrats like her trying to save their hides.

  2. Considering that it was people like McCaskill's abysmally poor judgment that helped put Obama into office in the first place, it is rank hypocrisy for her or any others to distance themselves from what they themselves have wrought.

    And yes, RR, it is our schadenfreude moment of the day!
