Seriously.....what person in their right mind would consider having Obama come to their state to campaign for them as a good thing? Or a carrot and stick?
Barack Obama threatens to withdraw support from wavering Democrats
Barack Obama has said he will not campaign for any Democratic congressmen who fails to support health care reform.
Ok, here is the deal sparky.....I don't believe that there are too many democrats seeking reelection that want to see Obama's teleprompter in their district before the fall elections period.
Aside for Harry Reid, who really wants Obama to come campaign for him, seeing as Reid is going down faster than the Titanic, I don't know of anyone who is seriously entertaining having Obama pay them a visit. With the possible exception of John McCain, who might actually boost his numbers with RINOs via a presidential visit.
So this is one of the most hollow threats that I have ever seen offered by a sitting president.
The bottom line....whoever votes for this health care bill is knowingly placing their seat in jeopardy and commiting policital suicide, so who in hell thinks that supporting the bill, then having Barack Obama to come and stump for them is going to make any difference at all.
That makes about as much sense as putting a pistol in your mouth, then telling the president to come tidy things up for you after you pull the trigger.
