Talk about the reverse Midas touch. Just a little over one year in office and Democrats are running away from The Chosen One.
President Barack Obama took his travel health care and snake oil show on the road to Ohio today. A funny thing happened, he was met with protests from the people and local Democrat politicians ran for the hills.
Another Democrat flees the scene…
Ohio Dem Rep. John Boccieri skipped out on Barack Obama’s dog and pony health care rodeo today in Ohio.
As reported at the NY Times, Representative John Boccieri, Democrat of Ohio, will not be attending President Obama’s health care rally on Monday in Strongsville, Ohio
Representative John Boccieri, Democrat of Ohio, whose vote on major health care legislation could be crucial to the outcome, will not be attending President Obama’s health care rally on Monday in Strongsville, Ohio, not far from Mr. Boccieri’s own district, a spokeswoman said.
In recent days, Mr. Boccieri has indicated that he is undecided on the current version of the health care legislation. In November, he was one of 39 Democrats who voted against the House bill. At the time, he cited concerns that the legislation did not do enough to contain soaring health care costs.
It’s not the first time that politicians were distancing them self from Obama. When the Obamacare road show came to St. Louis, Democrat candidate Robin Carnahan was MIA.
