Democrat Mary Landrieu’s quest for a fourth Senate term will turn on whether she can attract just enough support from independents and Republicans to win in this increasingly conservative state.
The daughter and sister of New Orleans mayors, that’s been Landrieu’s re-election strategy since 2002, when her donors included a Baton Rouge physician named Bill Cassidy_now her Republican challenger in this year’s midterm elections.
Hm. What a surprise.
During an event sponsored by the Southwest Louisiana Chamber of Commerce, Landrieu defended ObamaCare and declared that she would again vote for the law if it came back up in Congress.
“No more free-riders. Everybody has to share responsibility so we can keep a healthy workforce and keep it strong,” said Landrieu in her defense of ObamaCare. “If I had to vote for the bill again, I would vote for it tomorrow.”
Nothing like the stupidity, greed, arrogance, and power-lust of the average Democrat to blind them to the possibilities of their own vulnerability. So you doubled down, eh?
I hope your opponents are slathering every video screen in Louisiana with recordings of your glorious double-down, Senator, and I hope you choke on it as your political career ends up swinging in the wind from the nearest metaphorical lamppost.
