Senate Dem Mark Begich: I'm a Thorn in Obama's Ass
Senate Democrat Mark Begich of Alaska used some salty language to describe his relationship with President Obama, but it appears that the Washington Post editors censored his actual comment.
“I’ll be a thorn in his [posterior],” Begich said in an interview with the Washington Post which edited his comment in brackets. “There’s times when I’m a total thorn, you know, and he doesn’t appreciate it.”
Begich, a Democratic senator in a red state, is touting his differences with the President as his top quality as he runs hard for re-election.
In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper and Dana Bash in January, Begich said if President Obama wanted to come to Alaska, he would "drag him around" the state to show him why so many of his policies are wrong.
"I don't need him campaigning for me; I need him to change some of his policies," he said in the interview.
