    Alison Grimes: Stop asking me if I voted for Obama

    Alison Grimes: Stop asking me if I voted for Obama

    “You know, this election isn’t about the president.”

    If you had any doubt that the Obama brand has become downright toxic, look no further than Mitch McConnell’s Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes.

    First she ran an ad in which she said “I’m not Obama”; now, she’s clearly denying ever supporting Obama.

    Sahil Kapur of TPM reported:

    Grimes Refuses To Say If She Voted For Obama (VIDEO)

    Kentucky Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes refused three times to say if she voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 or 2012, pressed on it during an interview Thursday with the Louisville Courier-Journal editorial board.

    “You know, this election isn’t about the president,” she said, calling herself a “Clinton Democrat” and adding that she was a delegate for Hillary Clinton in 2008.

    Here’s the video: UPDATE — There was the video – it was pulled because of a Gannett copyright claim:

    (added – Greta has it as part of her segment)

    Unfortunately for Grimes, Obama is on the ballot.

    He said so himself.

    During Winston Churchill’s early political career, one of his elder mentors told him that he was supposed to support his party when it needed support, not only when he happened to agree with party policy. If he wanted to be a voter of conscience or conviction, he didn’t need to be a party member at all.

    Now we all know the Parliamentary system is very different from ours, but that essential dichotomy – conscience/conviction vs. the Party line – is the same. Here we call it party discipline. The Democrats are far better at it than anyone else in American politics. The Dems aren’t up in Bolshevik territory, certainly, where dissenters were immediately purged, and not even in the same league as, say, the Italian fascists; but still pretty tight. Recall the Watergate era, when the Republicans finally abandoned Nixon after they realized that not only was Nixon lying to the press and to the Democrats, he was lying to them – the Republicans – too. A modern Democrat will never abandon another Democrat in such a situation, no matter how much he may deserve it; it’s Party über alles for them. Nor will a modern Democrat abandon even the silliest plank of the Party platform, for the same reason. It’s a source of political strength, but it’s also the main reason why the Dems are so destructive and so disgusting.

    Any Democratic politician is simply a rubber stamp, an automatic “yes” for any perversion the Party adopts as policy. So, while Grimes is a moron, too stupid, apparently, to anticipate an obvious question and prepare a decent answer, too duplicitous to answer it honestly, and too slow on her feet to improvise a response on-the-fly, that’s not really all that important; she’s not going to be thinking about votes, so her lack of intellectual horsepower won’t be a handicap. The Party will do her thinking for her.

    Her real problem is that she’s a Democrat, and so an inflexible part of the Democratic bloc and its depressing vision for the future of America.
