It seems quite odd, but Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) apparently believes she is running for reelection to the Senate against Barack Obama. Her first two ads asking Louisiana to support her in the 2014 midterms highlight how bad Obama has been for Louisiana.
Remember her first ad was all about President Obama’s Big Lie.
Senator Landrieu came out of the gate with her guns leveled at the Obama administration in hopes of distancing herself from the wildly unpopular (in Louisiana) President.
While Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) believes that Democrats won’t run away from Obamacare in 2014, Senator Landrieu begs to differ.
Her 2nd ad of the election season was just as hard on President Obama (and the average Democrat). This time around the topic would be oil and the Democrats’ war on American oil production.
Senator Landrieu obviously believes that her best chance at winning reelection lies with distancing herself from her Democrat friends. It has to be a bad sign for your campaign when you think it’s more beneficial to run ads against people you agree with most of the time than it would be to run ads against your opponents. What Landrieu realizes and Pelosi has obviously forgotten from spending all her time in Washington D.C. and San Francisisco… is that the average American is tired of Obamacare and tired of Obama.
I think we are going to start seeing more at-risk Democrats using Landrieu’s tactics as their situations grow direr. We need to be ready to remind their voters that these Democrats were voting with President Obama and the rest of the Democrat Party when all of these bad decisions were made. They bear the burden of blame too.
