Pretty much everything that I wrote about the Georgia race applies to Colorado’s, with one notable difference: The Democrat, Mark Udall, is already trailing Republican Rep. Cory Gardner.
President Obama’s disapproval rating is 56% in Colorado, a state that was trending blue until Obama and his Bloombergian anti-gun agenda came along. Now no one is sure which way Colorado really tilts, but this mid-term is appears to be rejecting Obama and everyone associated with him.
So, it’s the perfect moment for Mrs. Obama to fly in and and connect Mark Udall to her unpopular husband.
“We have truly made so much of that change we were talking about,” FLOTUS said. “But here’s what I want you to remember, especially now: all this didn’t just happen because we elected Barack Obama. It happened because we also elected outstanding leaders in states across this country, leaders like Mark Udall …”
Gardner’s media team surely are cutting this clip into new ads right now. It will form the backbone of some great ads.
“ISIS, Ebola, Obamacare, skyrocketing energy prices, higher taxes, lost jobs, loss of your Second Amendment rights…(CUT) All this didn’t all this didn’t just happen because we elected Barack Obama. It happened because we also elected outstanding leaders in states across this country, leaders like Mark Udall. (CUT) Had enough of ‘leaders’ like Barack Obama and Mark Udall? Vote Cory Gardner…”
Either the Obamas are the least self-aware politicians in the country, or they really don’t mind losing the Senate to Republican control.
