Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Evan Bayh (D-IN) to not seek re-election

This was a seat that, until about 2 – 3 weeks ago, Dems didn’t worry about having to defend this year.  Then, former Senator Dan Coats announced he would seek his old seat back, recognizing that Bayh had sold out Indiana to the national Democrats.  All of a sudden, the seat was imperiled.

In totally unrelated news, Bayh has decided not to seek re-election.  Details:

Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh will not seek re-election this year, he announce Monday, a decision that hands Republicans a prime pickup opportunity in the middle of the country.

“After all these years, my passion for service to my fellow citizens is undiminished, but my desire to do so by serving in Congress has waned,” Bayh said at a press conference in Indianapolis.

“My decision was not motivated by political concern,” Bayh said. “Even in the current challenging environment, I am confident in my prospects for re-election.”

Uh-huh.  His decision to support ObamaCare, which is massively unpopular back home in Indiana, cost him major points and put a huge dent in his “moderate/centrist” facade.  Coats announcing that he would challenge lap dog…er, “Blue Dog…Bayh had jack squat to do with Bayh’s decision not to run, huh?  Sorry…not buying it.  Count this as a near-lock for a GOP pickup.

  1. I think he’s going after the Democrat Nomination in 12. Rush pointed out he has 13 million in the Campaign accounts. If he loses in Indiana this year. his presidential dreams are for not. However he can now not be defeated, rehabilitate himself for his poor votes and Take on Obama from the middle.
