In spite of the fact that Louisiana has a governor who is a minority, the fact that their previous governor was a woman and the fact that she belonged to a privileged political family, Mary Landrieu is a victim. She’s not a victim of the unworkable policies of the Obama Administration, or the fact that she supported those polices, no, she’s a victim of racism and sexism. It can’t be her statement to Politico that: “I am proud of my support for the Affordable Care Act, whether my opponents want to call it ACA or Obamacare, I voted for it,” she said. “I’m glad I voted for it.”
Breitbart.com also posed a video showing Landrieu repeating Obama’s lie about keeping health coverage in 2009. “While those individuals who like the coverage they already have will be able to keep their current plan. This is a very accurate description of this bill,” she said.
Racism because, of course, Obama’s failed policies are only unpopular because he is half black, and sexism not because she supported those policies, but because voters don’t elect women. Desperation is showing it’s ugly head in many different ways, dividing people by race and gender is one of the most offensive.
Mary Landrieu: Obama unpopular in Louisiana because of racism – video
It’s generally not a good idea to call people you want voting for you racist, but that’s exactly what Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., did during an interview with Chuck Todd.
“I’ll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans,” she told NBC News. “It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.”
She also accused her constituents of being sexist. According to Landrieu, the South “has not always been a good place for women” because it’s more of a “conservative place”.
Translation: Her constituents are racist AND sexist.
Gov. Bobby Jindal, who happens to be of Indian descent, shredded Landrieu with the following statement.
“Implied in her comments is the clear suggestion that President Obama and his policies are unpopular in Louisiana because of his ethnicity. That is a major insult by Senator Landrieu to the people of Louisiana and I flatly reject it.”
According to Real Clear Politics, Landrieu is trailing by 4.5 percent. Why she isn’t trailing by much more is a real question.
