You sure know how to pick ’em, champ. Between the impending collapse of ObamaCare and the “Game Change” unpleasantness, this may end up being the single most awkward campaign rally in modern political history.
President Obama will appear with politically embattled Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in Las Vegas next month, according to a White House official.
While it is not clear whether the appearance will be overtly political, any appearance by the president in Reid’s home state is likely to be seen as an effort to buck up Reid’s re-election effort.
“And now I’d like to introduce my friend Harry Reid, whose list of accomplishments includes, uh, ummmmmm…” It’s a sign of how weak Dingy is that he still needs buoying up by an ever-weakening Obama: The one’s approval rating is in negative territory for the first time ever today in a PPP poll, and in Nevada his favorable rating — which is almost always higher than his approval numbers — is currently stuck at 38/47 in Pollster.com’s poll of polls. Needless to say, Reid’s is one of the eight seats that Larry Sabato’s momentarily projecting the GOP to pick up in November.
Exit question: Notwithstanding how reliably liberal he is, given the current political climate, if he wasn’t majority leader would Reid be a no vote on ObamaCare?
