Landrieu, by extension, admits to being a bigot

As the midterm campaigns round the bend for the home stretch, it’s not difficult to surmise which candidates are feeling uneasy.  [mc_name name=’Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’L000550′ ] in Louisiana is squirming, and because there is nothing of substance that she can run on, she decided to go to the back of the play book and deploy a Democrat party failsafe – the race card.

In an interview Thursday on NBC, the incumbent said, ““I’ll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.”

Since BHO was elected, the left and their media protagonists have been remarkably successful at characterizing any opposition to his policies as racism, and, as all else has proven to be a failure, and more, because it’s been so successful at restraining many Republicans, Landrieu  couldn’t resist going there as well.

One problem – Landrieu has not been bashful about voicing her disagreements with the president…for example, in regards to his energy policy and his Ebola strategy.  In addition, in a recent debate, she gave BHO a rating of 7 on a scale of 10.

Given her assertion about the bigotry of southerners, would it be unreasonable to conclude that her opposition, and her middling rating of the agitator in chief, is sourced in her own racism?

Of course, it may well be that the senator is just doing as the president asked and “saying whatever is necessary to win,” even if it means lying.  Still, it’s comical how knotted up these candidates get when they throw so much garbage and nothing really sticks.
