Obama to stump for Carnahan in Missouri

July 6, 2010


— President Barack Obama will mix campaigning with a discussion on the economy during a trip to Missouri this week.

The White House says Obama will travel to Kansas City on Thursday to discuss the economy with workers at Smith Electric Vehicles.

Later Thursday, Obama will raise money for Senate candidate Robin Carnahan. Carnahan is the leading Democratic candidate in the race to replace retiring Republican Sen. Kit Bond. Rep. Roy Blunt is the Republican front-runner.

Pairing an official event with a political appearance lets the White House bill taxpayers rather than Carnahan’s campaign for most of the president’s travel costs.

Worth repeating: What do Arlen Specter, Jon Corzine, Creigh Deeds, Martha Coakley, Kwame Kilpatrick, and Rod Blagojevich have in common? They all received the endorsement of Dear Leader while they were running for office. Specter, Corzine, Deeds and Coakley were defeated at the polls. Rod Blagojevich won his election and became governor of Illinois. He was later impeached and removed from office. Kwame Kilpatrick became the mayor of Detroit. He is currently in prison for various felony-level corruption offences. What a track record!
