Alison Grimes: Stop asking me if I voted for Obama

Alison Grimes: Stop asking me if I voted for Obama

“You know, this election isn’t about the president.”

If you had any doubt that the Obama brand has become downright toxic, look no further than Mitch McConnell’s Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes.

First she ran an ad in which she said “I’m not Obama”; now, she’s clearly denying ever supporting Obama.

Sahil Kapur of TPM reported:

Grimes Refuses To Say If She Voted For Obama (VIDEO)

Kentucky Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes refused three times to say if she voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 or 2012, pressed on it during an interview Thursday with the Louisville Courier-Journal editorial board.

“You know, this election isn’t about the president,” she said, calling herself a “Clinton Democrat” and adding that she was a delegate for Hillary Clinton in 2008.

Here’s the video: UPDATE — There was the video – it was pulled because of a Gannett copyright claim:

Unfortunately for Grimes, Obama is on the ballot.

He said so himself.

“You know, this election isn’t about the president,” she said…

desperately, hoping against hope she could convince anyone. But in her heart she knew…she had lost them.

Heh! Oh, and she is SOOOOOOO pro-coal, it will bring tears to your eyes. Of laughter…!!!

    “Ah but it is Alison, it is.”

    “It is all about the White House Resident.”

    “This Election is ONLY About Obama!”

    “….and his Voodoo Economics, Voodoo Death Panels, Voodoo support of terrorists on the sly, Voodoo Fast and Furious with its illegal weapons to Mexican gang lords, and it goes on and on…..”

    That is what scribbler should have retorted to Alison.

    Her BS was so laughable. She basically DID answer the question.

    Now, I am not a Democrat and I think Grimes is a lying, laughable candidate with no chance (even though I would LOVE for Republicans to take back the Senate BUT have RINO in charge McConnell lose).

    But with 30 seconds of thought I could come up with a better answer.

    “Yes, I voted for President Obama. At the time, he represented himself as somebody that would rise above the partisanship in Washington and change things. After he was elected I was extremely disappointed in how he handled things, and I regret my vote. That is part of why I wish to be elected to Congress”.

    There you go. You admit the truth and cast it as a positive thing.

    The fact that she and her campaign are too stupid to come up with things like makes me think she’s just too dumb to win.

Democrats, they lie as readily as necessary.

All sentient Kentuckians know she voted for Obama, twice. She is a straight-ticket Democrat who has swallowed whole, and then spouts back, every liberal nostrum ever invented[*]. KY just can’t be that stupid to buy her bill of goods.

[*] Anyone doubt that had she been politically active in the 1960s, that she would have 100% for unilateral disarmament?

    Agreed. She was an Obama voter; the alternative is just too far out to be true.

    “‘You know, this election isn’t about the president,’ she said, calling herself a ‘Clinton Democrat’ and adding that she was a delegate for Hillary Clinton in 2008.”

    That’s a cop-out response, unless she’s going to claim that she became a McCain supporter in 2008 once Hillary lost the Democrat primary, and that she supported Romney in 2012.

    What are the odds KY voters will believe that?

    However, did you realize that Mohammad copied that concept of lying for the benefit of Islam from the Democrat’s play book? Actually, Democrats and Islamists have always followed the same handbook!

Karma really is a bitch.

WHO she voted for is a legitimate question for a candidate. The answer tells us a lot about the candidate’s judgment and political foundation.

Lie down with dogs…………….

NBC’s Chuck Todd says Grimes “disqualified herself” …

This election is very much about Obama. It might not be so if Democrats, particularly US Senate Democrats, hadn’t slavishly followed the president’s lead. But, they have not even defended the US Senate against attacks on its institutional powers by a president who thinks that he can rule by executive order, ignore Congress when it suits him, and treat the constitution in Woodrow Wilson fashion as a “mere guideline”. They support this president and they should lose office for their craven submission to his trampling on the separation of powers.

Grimes was a delegate for Obama in 2012, but she sneakily left that out and only said that she had been a Hillary delegate in 2008.

Very pathetic showing from Grimes in this video.

Well she denied Obama three times. I guess that makes him the “Anointed One”. And that makes her the head of his new church.

Now all we need is for a cock to crow. I guess that would be Biden.

Chuck Todd, in essence: ‘If you won’t publicly profess your love for Obama then you can’t seek office as a Democrat.’

Had I been an editor as this third denial of Obamna I would not have been able to stop myself from crowing out loud like the biblical cock.

The vote that disqualifies her is her plan to vote for Harry Reid to run the senate

During Winston Churchill’s early political career, one of his elder mentors told him that he was supposed to support his party when it needed support, not only when he happened to agree with party policy. If he wanted to be a voter of conscience or conviction, he didn’t need to be a party member at all.

Now we all know the Parliamentary system is very different from ours, but that essential dichotomy – conscience/conviction vs. the Party line – is the same. Here we call it party discipline. The Democrats are far better at it than anyone else in American politics. The Dems aren’t up in Bolshevik territory, certainly, where dissenters were immediately purged, and not even in the same league as, say, the Italian fascists; but still pretty tight. Recall the Watergate era, when the Republicans finally abandoned Nixon after they realized that not only was Nixon lying to the press and to the Democrats, he was lying to them – the Republicans – too. A modern Democrat will never abandon another Democrat in such a situation, no matter how much he may deserve it; it’s Party über alles for them. Nor will a modern Democrat abandon even the silliest plank of the Party platform, for the same reason. It’s a source of political strength, but it’s also the main reason why the Dems are so destructive and so disgusting.

Any Democratic politician is simply a rubber stamp, an automatic “yes” for any perversion the Party adopts as policy. So, while Grimes is a moron, too stupid, apparently, to anticipate an obvious question and prepare a decent answer, too duplicitous to answer it honestly, and too slow on her feet to improvise a response on-the-fly, that’s not really all that important; she’s not going to be thinking about votes, so her lack of intellectual horsepower won’t be a handicap. The Party will do her thinking for her.

Her real problem is that she’s a Democrat, and so an inflexible part of the Democratic bloc and its depressing vision for the future of America.
