Liberal U.S. Senator Mark Udall’s family has been in politics for over 100 years and this is how he dances around a question? Who knew he had two political left feet?
After seeing the devastating impact of Obamacare in the special election in Florida on Tuesday, vulnerable Democrats around the country are scrambling in every direction. Some who figure they’re damned if they do, damned if they don’t, have doubled down saying not only would they vote for Obamacare again, they don’t think it went far enough (*cough* Romanoff *cough*). Yet, others are throwing themselves on the ground faster than a gigolo at a church revival, begging repentance and promising change in their heart after seeing the light. Udall? Well he’s the one with so much fear in his eyes he doesn’t know whether to go left or right, and just stands paralyzed by fear like a deer in headlights. As Politico reports it:
Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.), who will likely face GOP Rep. Cory Gardner in November, said he would prefer to answer a reporter’s question by phone to offer a “coherent” response. But his aides did not later make him available for an interview. [the Peak emphasis]
“Do the Udall side-step y’all! First look to your left, then look to your right, finally stand still and shake with fear!”
After Peter’s Udall’s infamous quadruple denial of having ever known Obama with CNN, we might have written his unpolished answer off as a one-time happenstance. But now, with this… if there’s one thing reporters like more than secretly pushing a partisan agenda from a “neutral” perspective, it’s blood-gorging on the weak. We wonder how many are licking their chops now, thinking of the perfect question that will send Udall to his political grave?
