Conservative talk radio host and author of “The Liberty Amendments,” Mark Levin, argued that Democrat Senate candidates distancing themselves from the president are evidence that the president’s failures are “coming home now” on Tuesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
“The Democrats are running away from him, the Republicans can’t get close enough to him. And the reason is, it’s not just Obama. This is quintessential Statism. It’s a disaster, it’s an impossibility. Every one of these incumbent Democrats who are now pretending they don’t support Obama supported him over 90, 95% [of the time]. They supported Obamacare, they supported amnesty, they supported this massive deficit spending and this debt, and all this is coming home now and it is a disaster. The country’s gone to hell under this president, under the Democrat Party. Everybody knows it” he stated
Levin also criticized the Republicans for not running an aggressive enough campaign against the Democrats, saying “my problem here is the Republicans are running a very quiet campaign. They’re not standing up for any principles, very little substance. This is an enormous opportunity to expand the Republican Party, to build it, to create momentum for 2016, and they’re not doing it. So, while the Republicans, I believe are going to have a very good night in two weeks they could have had a better one.”
He also predicted “he’s [Obama] going to do everything he can in the last two years of his presidency to further screw up the country, whether it’s the border and amnesty, whether it’s the economy, whether it’s god knows what. He’s been a very divisive, very damaging, very counterproductive president and so has his party. And that’s why you need to throw Harry Reid out of the United States senate and take over the Senate. I don’t want republicans to think they’re going to be joyful with what Mitch McConnell and the Republicans do. The first thing they’re going to say is ‘y’know we need the presidency,’ but keep it in mind. But we get rid of Harry Reid, and then we nominate a conservative for president of the United States.”
