Incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor Trails GOP Challenger Rep. Tom Cotton in Arkansas 48% to 41%

Democrat Senator in Serious Trouble Because of Barack Obama and Obamacare … Democrats, Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid.

According to a new poll from Citizens United Political Victory Fund by Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway of the polling company, Inc./WomanTrend, shows that incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Pryor is in serious trouble and trails Republican challenger Tom Cotton, 48% to 41%. Many Democrat politicians in “red” states are considered vulnerable because of their support of Obamacare and the disaster and lie that it has turned out to be. Pryor trails badly with Independents, 31%-52%.  Also, Barack Obama and Obamacare have a favorable, unfavorable in Arkansas of 35%-61% and 29%-62%, respectively.

Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor trails his Republican challenger, Rep. Tom Cotton, by seven points among likely voters in Arkansas, 48 percent to 41 percent, according to a new poll from a conservative group that says his support of the health care reform law is costing him.

The survey, shared exclusively with POLITICO, was conducted Friday and Saturday for the Citizens United Political Victory Fund by Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway of the polling company, Inc./WomanTrend.

Cotton is ahead among independents by 21 points and among women by 4 points.

“Mark Pryor is synonymous with Obamacare and Obamacare is synonymous with making life worse for the American people,” said David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United. “That’s why Pryor is losing to Cotton in the Arkansas Senate race.”

Pryor, considered by many to be the most vulnerable of the incumbents running for reelection, is viewed favorably by 44 percent of Arkansas voters and unfavorably by 39 percent. The poll found that only one-third of independents view Pryor favorably and 52 percent see him in a negative light.

I guess Barack Obama must have promised Mark Pryor and the other Democrats who voted for Obamacare against the will of the American people, you can keep your Senate and House seat, if you like your Senate and House seat. We all know how that worked for American insureds.

Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) Working on Bill that would Delay Obamacare Individual Mandate

What’s good for businesses should also be good for American individuals …

According to TPM, Democrat Senator from West Virginia Joe Manchin is working on a bill that would delay the “individual” mandate fir Obamacare for one year. After the disastrous rollout of the Obamacare website,, and the fact that the site just does not work and is an embarrassing  joke … a delay in the individual mandate may be in order. It will be interesting to see if this bill gets traction with other Senate Democrats. The dominoes are starting to fall … More to the point, Democrats fear a backlash in 2014.


On second thought, maybe this Obamacare is a complete train wreck

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is working on legislation to effectively delay Obamacare’s individual mandate for one year, his office told TPM on Wednesday.

His spokesman, Jonathan Kott, said Manchin opposes a bill proposed by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) to delay the mandate for a more indefinite period of time while problems with the insurance exchanges persist.

Manchin is the second Democrat this week to call for a delay in the individual mandate. As reported earlier, Senator  Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) voiced her support for a delay as well.

How about we just scrap the entire mess?

UPDATE I: Senate Dems Up for Re-Election in 2014 to Back Delay of Obamacare Enrollment Deadline.

These Democrats don’t care about the people, they are doing this to save their collective political a$$es and their power.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), who is up for re-election in 2014, wrote to Obama on Tuesday and asked him to delay the enrollment deadline for the individual mandate. “Given the existing problems with the website, I urge you to consider extending open enrollment beyond the current end date of March 31, 2014,” Shaheen wrote to the president. “Allowing extra time for consumers is critically important so they have the opportunity to become familiar with the website, survey their options and enroll.”

On Wednesday, Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR), who is facing a tough challenge in his 2014 re-election against Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR), came out in support of Shaheen’s call for a delay of the individual mandate’s enrollment deadline. Pryor had previously been on record as supportive of the mandate as is.

Now, according to CNN’s Bash, the Democratic Party is coordinating an effort to support a delay in the individual mandate

Obama Adviser Axelerod Says, Romney’s Effort in Pennsylvania a Sign Mitt is in ‘deep trouble’ … Hmm, Then Why Dispatch Bill Clinton to PA?

This morning on FOX News Sunday, Obama senior political adviser David Axelrod told Chris Wallace that the Romney campaigns move to Pennsylvania was a sign of desperation and that they were in “deep trouble”.

Senior Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod said Mitt Romney’s visit to Pennsylvania shows the GOP nominee’s campaign is in “deep trouble” and losing in the traditional battlegrounds.

Axelrod told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” that the Romney campaign’s move into Pennsylvania is a sign of desperation because they are trailing in polls in Ohio, a state no Republican has won the election without.

“The battleground states on which we have been focusing on are not working out for them,” Axelrod said. “We’re ahead in all of them and now are looking for somewhere, desperately looking for somewhere to try and dislodge some electoral votes to win this election. And I can tell you that’s not going to happen.”

Ok, if it is such a sign of desperation on the part of Romney campaigning in Pennsylvania, what does one call it when Obama dispatches Bill Clinton to the Key Stone state? That is correct, Team Obama feels the need to send former President Clinton to PA to stem the “mittemtum”. If its such a waste of time and a sign that Romney is in “deep trouble”, how does Axelrod justify sending Obama’s greatest asset, Bill Clinton to Pennsylvania. In fact, as reported at the Gateway Pundit, Clinton is scheduled to do four rallies in PA.

I would dare say that it just might be Obama who is in trouble in Pennsylvania. Isn’t it interesting that Obama cannot go himself to Pennsylvania to stump in front of those folks who cling to their Bibles and guns. When will blue collar Democrats understand that Obama is 180 degrees different from Obama. A vote for Obama will end coal and any energy jobs in PA.

However, in the end when talking spinning the battleground states and what party is ahead, I think it comes back to who you think is telling the truth. To hear the GOP and Democrats discuss who is ahead is like listening to a divorce case. One of the two has to be lying as the laws of physics prove that both Obama and Romney can’t win convincingly.

If that is the litmus test, who is telling the truth, sorry but Team Obama has no credibility. For folks who can’t tell us the truth about Benghazi prior to an election as have not wanted to answer difficult questions about FEMA screw ups like running out of water following Hurricane Sandy … who is really going to believe you now?

So Bill Clinton is to Praise Obama at the 2012 DNC Convention … Wasn’t it Just a “A Few Years Ago Clinton Said, This Guy Would Have Been Carrying Our Bags” … Clinton Praises Romney

Barack Obama … Don’t ask for things it might come true …

There is an old saying when it comes to TV shows that have hung on too long, be careful when they add a baby or a pet to the series. In Democrat politics its, be very careful when you need Bill Clinton in order to sell your presidency.

How desperate and really far behind is President Barack Obama in the 2012 Presidential campaign against GOP challenger Mitt Romney? So much that he had to ask political foe, former President Bill Clinton to come to his aid. Sorry, but these two do not like each other. Bill Clinton has a short memory as to how Team Obama savaged Hillary during the 2008 Democrat primary.It was Bill Clinton who accused Team Obama of playing the race card against him.

It was not too long ago that Clinton stated that  “a few years ago, This Guy [Obama] would have been carrying our bags” So why is Bill Clinton not being branded a racist for such a comment? Even though we know Clinton is not, hoe has that stopped Obama from using the race card in the past? Instead, Obama is in such desperate straights that he needs Clinton to win back Democrats scratching their heads as to why they voted for Obama and Independents. However, the two Presidents could not be farther apart in leadership or politics.

Former President Bill Clinton tried to get former senator Ted Kennedy to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in the 2008 election by describing Barack Obama this way: “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”

This anecdote is revealed in a New Yorker article on the relationship between Bill Clinton and Obama:

Much to the Surprise of the liberal MSM, Bill Clinton praised Mitt Romney and said “Bain Is Good Work…”

Clinton praising Romney’s Sterling Business career

 Bill Clinton accuses Obama and his minions of playing the race card against him

Bill Clinton will be giving the Keynote speech this week at the Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, DC. Really, does Obama want a Democrat that is more popular, more of a leader and more of a success as President speaking at this event? Most Democrats are just going to long for the days of Clinton and ask why they can’t have a third Clinton term as opposed to another failed four years of Obama.

Make no mistake about it, I am no fan of Bill Clinton. However, Clinton knew enough after getting his butt handed to him in the 1994 midterm election, better know as the Republican Revolution, Clinton then moved to the center to govern and with bipartisan support with the GOP. Barack Obama did just the opposite. After receiving a shellacking in 2010 at the hands of the GOP, Obama doubled down and moved even farther to the LEFT. No one is going to buy Clinton praising Obama’s policies and the economy is moving forward.

Unconventional Times … More Democrats Plan to Skip the Democrat National Covention, Add New York Democratic Reps. Bill Owens & Kathy Hochul to the List


Talk about no coattails … add two more Democrats to the list of those politicians who will not be attending the Democrat National Convention in North Carolina later this summer, otherwise known as the Obama love-fest. New York Democrat US Reps Bill Owens and Kathy Hochul will be skipping to convention so to not appear like they are left-wing Obama partisan politicians. Really? One would think that their constituents only need to look at their voting record since they have been “Inside the Beltway”. However, this is proving to be a troubling trend. If Democrat politicians in right leaning districts or those that are in need of Independents to get elected, one has to wonder just how well Barack Obama will do in 2012.

Um, don’t forget to RSVP to the DNCC

Vulnerable Democrats looking to distance themselves from President Obama have found an easy way to bolster their independent bona fides: just skip Obama’s big party.

At least half a dozen Democratic officials have said in recent days that they won’t attend the Democratic National Convention this September in Charlotte, North Carolina, where the president will formally receive the party’s nomination for a second term. The latest: New York Democratic Reps. Bill Owens and Kathy Hochul, both of whom won special elections in recent years – in 2009 and 2011, respectively – that were heralded by party leaders.

“I guarantee that my time will be better spent meeting the farmers, small business owners and other people who put me here,” Hochul told The Daily today.

A spokesman for Owens gave a similar explanation.

“He just has a packed schedule back home,” he said.

Previously, Pennsylvania Rep. Mark Critz and West Virginia Democrats Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, Sen. Joe Manchin and Rep. Nick Rahall all stated that they will be skipping the event. So these folks do not want their peeps to see them yucking it up with Obama and the crazed Kool-Aid drinkers. So just during election time these politicians decide to stay away from Obama, yet the rest of the time its AOK. The voters in these states and districts should vote them out just for that.

Exit Questions: What will the over/under be in the Vegas line for Democrats skipping the convention?
