Yahoo Finance: Obama Just Said The Last Thing Red State Democrats Want To Hear

Originally posted at Yahoo Finance.

US President Barack Obama offered a new talking point to Senate Republicans on Monday — just two weeks away from Election Day.

Speaking on the Rev. Al Sharpton’s radio show, Obama said the Democratic candidates who had been avoiding him were actually “strong allies who have supported my agenda.” Many of these candidates are in conservative-leaning states where Obama’s agenda is decisively unpopular.

“And so some of the candidates there — it is difficult for them to have me in the state because the Republicans will use that to try to fan Republican turnout,” Obama said, according to The Hill. “The bottom line is, though, these are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in Congress, they are on the right side of minimum wage, they are on the right side of fair pay, they are on the right side of rebuilding our infrastructure, they’re on the right side of early childhood education.”

Neutral political observers said the quote was a gift for Republicans running in tougher-than-expected races in these more conservative states. Senate Republicans need to net six seats to regain the majority in the chamber. To accomplish that, they must pick off Democrats in states like Louisiana, Alaska, North Carolina, and Arkansas.

“Christmas came early for Republicans in tough races,” the research firm Potomac Research Group declared Tuesday morning. “Big mistake. We’ve seen TV ads all around the country, and the GOP spots are scathing — if you vote for the Democrat, you’re voting for Obama. The president apparently doesn’t get it; he once again has made the election about him. Not a smart move.”

    He can’t stand it if it’s not about him. I think it’s called narcissism or something like that.

    He is trying to get out the black vote and all those that do support his policies. It may work and it tight races that could be bad news.

    Well if all those guys is on the “right” side …they are not on the “left” side …and if they are on the “right” side… they are not on the “wrong” side …and being on the “right”side is to be conservative…he double talks, misleads and down right lies to the people. Thanks Dinesh for staying focused on the truth and things we might not hear ordinarily… And thanks for standing up for AMERICA…God bless you and your family! I am hoping I get to see your movies some day.

    I can’t wait until the veil of lies is taken off the people who believe all the wrong things that the POTUS spews out in the lapdog media, he has conjured up a spell where these illiterate people think everything he says and does is so wonderful, they are the most ignorant people on the planet.
    I wish the veil would be taken off and they will vote for the right people instead of doing evil and works that stack up the votes illegally for the wrong people.

    He isn’t scared about the election, because he has already fixed it for democrats to win. He is a liar, a thug politician and a jihadist out to “rebuild our infrastructure”. If this is what the “folks” want let them have a government that will rule them and lord over them and they will lose the American dream they think the government is going to hand them. Its a lie and all the radicals, illegals and other crazed border crossers can have this country, because it isn’t what it once was and that fraud has made sure of that.

    They are lying. If you vote for these dem’s they will immediately do an about-face.

    Obama is right. Yes, we need a raise in the minimum wage. (Ever see a family live on what we’ve got as a minimum wage? “I command you to be openhanded toward your fellow Israelites who are poor and needy in your land” Deut 15:11.) Yes, we really need to rebuild our infrastructure, which is crumbling and putting us behind in global business. Yes, just as we have universal education we need access to early childhood education. (Ever see a single mom try to work and take care of her preschool kids? We’ve got such a single mom living with us right now.)

    Fred, unless you were being sarcastic, I would say…So should we pay an illegal or a high school drop out $15.00 an hour ($31,200.00 a yr) to work at McDonalds? What incentive do these people have to better themselves? Hard work and education get you higher paying jobs. Early education…do you mean early brainwashing? That is what the liberal administration is doing. Single moms? If they are not married, why are they having kids? Why is anyone having kids if they cannot pay for them? Sorry if I sound harsh to you, but I would like to see people be responsible for themselves and stop asking everyone else to take care of their needs. What happened to pride? Oh, I know, hard working Americans are bad and therefore owe me everything on a silver platter. God help us all.

    Fred! Minimum wage jobs were never meant to raise a family on! If someone decides to have children while working a minimum wage job, they’re an idiot! These jobs were meant for our High School and and College students so they won’t be nickeling and diming Mom and Dad for gas money. It also taught them a work ethic!

    Ever see a single mom try to work and take care of her preschool kids? Well, Fred. . . ever see a single mom who actuality works hard and supports her family try to support another family? How about thinking about consequences of our own actions before casting blame. Their crisis is not mine to burden. . . We all have our own. Take responsibility and be accountable and forward thinking. There is enough willing and able people and charities to assist those who actually need it. Further, minimum wage was never intended to be a working, sustainable wage. It’s entry level pay for entry level workers . . Is that concept too deep?

    President Obama was “on the Rev. Al Sharpton’s radio show” tells me that not many shows want Barry on the air any longer–it’s the main-stream-medias way of doing damage control. Thank God America has finally realized what and who President Obama is and what he has done and wants to do to further damage our great nation.

    I’m in Minnesota and contrary to the main-stream-media claiming that Sen. Al Franken is ahead in the polls, most everyone that I have spoken to want Franken out–I think that there may be a senate seat from MN going Republican this year!

    I get a sinking feeling that this is calculated by BHO. Something doesn’t add up and I’m afraid to see what it is..

    obama is wrong about raising minimum wage and he knows. Ok people keep here, if you go to say, McDonalds for a cheese burger and it costs $1.50 and minimum wage hasn’t gone up. Now you raise the minimum wage from $10.50 an hour to $15.00 an hour, what do you think will happen? For those of you who don’t know, I’ll tell you. First off you, the employee will pay higher taxes on your income, then your cheese burger will cost more because the owner now has to pay more and on and on. Although, most places that serve fast food hire part time only to avoid paying for employees health care. If they do pay healthcare costs, he raises the cost of all his menu to cover his costs. If your taxes go up on your income, which they will, you will lose almost all, if not all you wanted in the wage increase. So see people, a raise in minimum wages, is actually a loss for you, the employee.
