A few weeks ago, President Obama sent a thrill up the legs of Republicans when he said during a speech that while he wasn’t on the ballot on Nov. 4, his policies were. Cue the attack ads.
In an interview with Rev. Al Sharpton on Monday, Obama gave them an even bigger leg-thrill when he spoke about red-state candidates, like presumably Sen. Mark Begich, who are keeping their distance from him on the campaign trail.
“The bottom line is, though, these are all folks who vote with me. They have supported my agenda in Congress,” Obama said. “These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. I tell them — I said, you do what you need to do to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn out.”
Cue the attack ad.
