Seemed like a simple straight-forward question – Do you approve of the job President Obama is doing?
In fact, the political reporter speaking to Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) clarified the expected result for her.
“This is a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer,” she said.
Watch the exchange below …
They’re not laughing with you, Ms. Shaheen.
Via the Daily Caller:
As candidates across the country dodge the question of whether or not they voted for him, that option doesn’t exist for incumbent Democrats. They have a record.
One candidate with such a record is Senator Jeanne Shaheen from New Hampshire. She’s running for reelection against Scott Brown, the former Senator from Massachusetts, and polls show it is very close.
The issue of Shaheen’s support for the president’s agenda, voting with him 99 percent of the time, came up at their debate tonight. Shaheen’s answer drew laughter from the crowd.
Shaheen explained that most questions fielded by lawmakers don’t ever have a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.
Perhaps this was one of those times when Democrats were simply just pretending to not support the President.
Do you believe her? Is Shaheen right when she says it’s a complicated answer, or is she too afraid to admit she supports the President?
