First, Joe Manchin denied Obama, calling him a Flat Earther. Now…
… Sens. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Mark Pryor (D-Ar) have denied him. As reported by the National Journal:
A gap also exists between Obama and some of the more moderate members of his own party. When asked Tuesday about Obama’s plan, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., who is up for reelection in 2014, made it clear she was not necessarily on board.
“I have not even looked at that,” she said. “I’ve heard about it. The president and I have very strong disagreements on energy policy.”
That didn’t stop the National Republican Senatorial Committee from sending out releases Monday on Landrieu and other Democrats up for reelection, including Sen. Mark Pryor of Arkansas, tying the Democrats to Obama’s climate agenda.
Yet Pryor also says he doesn’t know anything about Obama’s plans. “I haven’t had a chance to look at it,” he said Tuesday.
“Not looking at Obama’s plan” sounds like a mantra.
