Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Two Indiana Democrats commit political suicide for ObamaCare

Congressman Brad Ellsworth, into his second term as a House member from a red district, isn’t running for re-election.  That would explain his vote for ObamaCare, since the electorate couldn’t retaliate against him in November.

Oh, but they can…and they will.  He’s running for the U.S. Senate, the seat being vacated by Evan Bayh (who also told Indianans to s#ck it and voted for ObamaCare in the Senate).  How’s President Hopenchange working out for Ellsworth?  Not too well.  Details:

Two of the three top Republican hopefuls for the U.S. Senate in Indiana continue to hold double-digit leads over Democratic Congressman Brad Ellsworth. Ellsworth supported President Obama’s health care plan in a state where opposition to the legislation is higher than it is nationally.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds former Congressman John Hostettler with a 50% to 32% lead over Ellsworth, a current House member who voted with most other Democrats on Sunday to pass the health care plan. The survey was taken last Wednesday and Thursday nights. Fifteen percent (15%) remain undecided in that match-up.

Ex-Senator Dan Coats now posts a 49% to 34% lead over Ellsworth, with 12% undecided.

Ellsworth runs best against the third GOP contender, freshman State Senator Marlin Stutzman. In that match-up, Stutzman leads by just seven points, 41% to 34%. Eighteen percent (18%) are undecided.

Unless there is a major shift if perception of the health care plan, Ellsworth may face a big challenge convincing voters in the state why he voted for the President’s plan. Just 35% of Indiana voters favor the plan proposed by the president and congressional Democrats, while 63% oppose it. This is well above the level of opposition found nationally. These findings include 21% who Strongly Favor the plan and 54% who Strongly Oppose it.

What a moron!  “My state really, and I mean reaaaaaaaaaaallllllly, hates ObamaCare.  I want to represent the entire state in the Senate.  Hey, I know!  I’ll vote for the bill that my fellow Indianans despise!”

As for the other Hoosier huckster, Baron Hill realizes he probably fell on his sword:

Said Representative Baron Hill, an Indiana Democrat, “I feel like I am walking the plank.”

“In the short term, it’s going to cost me,” Hill said. “It remains to be seen whether or not people will see the benefits that are in the bill 10 years out.”

Translation: My constituents loathed this bill, but I drank the Obama Kool-Aid, so I pulled the plug on my career.

Oh, well.  I’m sure Barry O will hook them up with a plum administration job after their impending November defeats.  Birds of a feather flock together, no?

  1. Birds of a feather flock together, no?

    Wasn’t that what O and Daschle thought too?
