Obama's contrived taxpayer-funded campaign tour swings into Virginia today and elected Democrats are running for the hills, deathly afraid of being seen with the increasingly toxic failed president.
President Obama arrives in the state Tuesday as part of three-day North Carolina and Virginia bus tour to talk about the economy, but it’s not clear how many Virginia Democrats will be with him.It's not like they'd have that far to travel. If he weren't so deeply unpopular, they'd be rushing in for the photos ops.
As we reported today, Democratic state legislators are none too eager to support Obama, let alone be seen with him.
The state’s top Democrats will be not be around, either.
Sens. Jim Webb and Mark Warner will be in Washington, where Congress is in session.
Tim Kaine, former governor and Democratic National Committee chairman, is spending the day in Northern Virginia, in part to help legislative candidates who are on the ballot next month. Kaine, now a candidate for the U.S. Senate next year, appeared with Obama at the University of Richmond in August.
“The last thing they want to do is be tied to the hip of an unpopular president,’’ Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) said. “If he wanted to help these Democrats, he would stay far away from Virginia. They’re trying to save their skin.”
