Let’s face it, Alison Grimes hasn’t been helped by any of her recent missteps regarding whether she voted for Obama.

She repeated the refusal to answer the question on local TV again:

The last time we checked in with former White House spokesman Jay Carney he was predicting doom for Democrats in the midterms. It looks like he hasn’t changed his mind.

In a recent appearance on MSNBC, the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank suggested an inconsistency between Republican desires to remove Obama from office, and Republican complaints that the Secret Service was not adequately protecting Obama from harm.
