President Obama will come to Missouri to raise money for Robin Carnahan, who he called “one of my favorite people” at an event earlier this year. According to the Kansas City Star, the president will campaign for Carnahan on July 8 in Kansas City.
“It’s not surprising that President Obama will come to Missouri to raise money for Rubberstamp Robin Carnahan,’” said Lloyd Smith, Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party. “After all, Rubberstamp Robin is one for Barack Obama’s ‘favorite people’ because she has given her unquestionable support to every major component of Obama’s big-government agenda—including the government takeover of health care, the job-killing oil drilling moratorium, the failed stimulus bill, the devastating cap-and-tax energy scheme, and the transfer of some of the world’s most dangerous terrorists to American soil. Carnahan would remain one of the president’s favorite people if she goes back to Washington, DC, to advance the radical agenda of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama.”
Carnahan has announced that she supports every major component of the liberal Obama agenda. Most recently, she rubberstamped President Obama’s job-killing offshore drilling moratorium—a proposal that was thrown out by a federal court in Louisiana.
