Down in the polls and seeing her campaign continue to struggle to connect with Louisiana voters, Mary Landrieu's struggling re-election campaign is in rough waters. But despite continuing to mislead the public about Bill Cassidy's record and run from her own, voters in Louisiana know the truth: Mary Landrieu’s supposed clout has done nothing but give Louisiana failed Obama policies.
As Mary Landrieu continues to flail in search of something to revive her stalled campaign for re-election, she has started attacking Dr. Bill Cassidy for something she once supported – ensuring Social Security’s long-term viability by gradually phasing in reforms without affecting those on or about to be on the program.
Four months ago, Senator Mary Landrieu waved the white flag on one of her top priorities – getting the Keystone XL Pipeline built. But before she gave up trying to get a vote to approve the pipeline in the Senate and said it was “not my job” to convince President Obama to build the pipeline, Landrieu did what she’s best at – some self promotion. Landrieu held a show vote in the Energy Committee to try and provide some political cover for her re-election race.
But the surest sign that Air Mary is having a rough ride is the stunning move she just made yesterday to can her campaign manager less than a month before the Nov. 4 election. While her campaign has tried to spin it as business as usual for Landrieu, make no mistake – this is a desperate move by a desperate candidate.
