Why It Matters Who Alison Lundergan Grimes Voted For

The whole world now knows Kentucky Democrat Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes refuses to say whether or not she voted for Barrack Obama in the last presidential election. Her reasoning is that she, and not Obama, is on the ballot.

True enough. But when John  McCain was on the ballot in 2008, Obama ran against George W. Bush, who was not on the ballot, but I digress.

Grimes is running away from Obama like the Democrat Party is running away from her. Now everyone wants to ask her the question. Every time she dodges the question, the worse it gets for her.

It’s now too late for a slick response such as she voted for Obama but was disappointed with him and name a couple of his many failures. Of course if she voted for him twice, even that excuse wouldn’t work.

Since Grimes began her dodge, Michelle Nunn, Democrat Senate candidate from Georgia, has begun running away from Obama and refuses to say who she voted for.

So why is it important to know who Grimes and Nunn voted for, besides the fun of watching them squirm every time the question is asked? Because neither one of them is an incumbent, so therefore they have no voting record to examine. Sure, we know what they say, but this may come as a shock to some of you, but politicians sometimes lie (gasp!) while campaigning for office.

Actions speak louder than words, so instead of relying on what they say, we voters like to look at a candidate’s past actions to try and predict what they would do if elected. 

So when a candidate for the United States Senate refuses to say who she voted for in the most recent presidential election, she is clearly is hiding something she doesn’t want you to know.

Obviously both of these women voted for Barrack Obama. Knowing that, what sort of conclusions could we make that they don’t want us to figure out? There are a few possibilities.

  • A) They have very poor judgement, which would extend to their behavior as a senator.
  • B) They are ideologues who will only vote the party line. This would mean they cannot think for themselves.
  • C) They support Obama’s failed liberal policies such as larger government, more spending, less individual freedom, higher taxes, class and race warfare, Obamacare, and failure to follow the Constitution, just to name a few.
  • D) They will always run from tough questions and will dodge the media (and Republicans) whenever they can.
  • E) They will not be able to reach across the aisle to work with Republicans on solving problems.

Yeah, I don’t blame them. I wouldn’t want to admit I voted for Obama either. (I didn’t)

They look foolish dodging the question. Are they that embarrassed about what they plan to do if elected? If they can’t handle a few reporters, how in the hell are they going to handle ISIS, or the bevy of scandals now surrounding the White House?

Their shame of who they voted for makes it clear who the right candidates are to vote for, and it’s not Grimes or Nunn.
