It looks like Bennet is having trouble wrangling his left-wing Democratic base, who are miffed that after waffling on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, he finally decided he supports it. They don’t like his vote supporting the Iran deal, and neither did we.
That’s according to a Denver Post profile of the candidate, which to our surprise, was kind of hard-hitting and didn’t give him a pass on the tough issues.
“It would be really easy for me to just oppose the deal,” Bennet added. “Politically, that would be the easiest thing in the world to do. Just like voting against the Iran deal would have been the easiest thing in the world to do.”
It would have been easy to oppose it as well, but he didn’t do it. Instead, he’s trying desperately to spin his opposition to his party on key issues as proof that he can be bipartisan.
Like the one time he didn’t vote with extreme environmentalists and supported the Keystone pipeline.
He also claims that as proof of his bipartisanship, he’s not going to announce his support for a Supreme Court justice nominee until after he’s elected.
Nice try, Bennet, but we’re not buying it, and neither is your Democratic base.
This is not bipartisanship, it’s called waffling when the White House twists your arm to support their deals, or nominee, good or bad.
Waffling, we’ve reported time and again, is a record on which Bennet excels.
