Colorado’s Democrat Senator Mark Udall sat down with CNN’s Dana Bash and the subject of Professor Ditherton Wiggleroom came up:
“Is he a liability for you, the president back home?” Bash asked.
“When the president comes to Colorado and talks about our all-the-above energy approach — we’ve got lots of natural gas and solar power — that resonates with Coloradans,” Udall responded. “When he talks about making sure our veterans are treated properly that resonates with Coloradans.”
Bash then asked if that meant he would campaign alongside the president of the United States.
“We’re going to be running a strong campaign based on Colorado’s interests and Colorado’s future. My job, I think, is to protect Colorado’s way of life,” the Democrat said.
“That was not a yes or no,” Bash pressed. “Yes or No?”
“We’ll see what the president’s schedule is; we’ll see what my schedule is. But Coloradans are going to re-elect me based on my record, not the president’s record,” he replied, skirting the question for the third time.
Bash gave Udall one more chance to provide her with a yes or no answer.
“We’ll see what the schedule allows,” he added. “I’m running for re-election, not the president of Colorado.”
President of Colorado? That’s the best he could do? Udall is an idiot — but he’s no dummy.
