‘Free Beacon’ Montage: Dems Say Obama Isn’t on the Ballot in 2014, but Obama Disagrees
Obama Fact-Checks Red State Democrats: The 2014 Election is About His Policies After All (Washington Free Beacon)
President Obama made a lot of red-state Democrats in difficult Senate battles cringe Thursday when he declared while his name wasn’t on the ballot in 2014, the policies he champions are.
“Now, I’m not on the ballot this fall,” he said. “Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake, these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”
That’s news to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, although it’s well-established that she and Obama aren’t in sync on just about anything.
“Is the issue in the fall a referendum on President Obama?” David Gregory asked in April on Meet the Press.
“No,” Schultz said. “Absolutely not.”
