Gore doesn't mention Obama at FL campaign stop

He is rapidly becoming the invisible man -a forgotten bringer of hopeandchange whose name is so toxic among a large segment of voters that Democrats dare not whisper the president's name in many states.

It won't save them.


Al Gore failed to mention President Barack Obama at a campaign rally in Florida as Democrats extended their new tactic for next month's elections - ignoring the man who so inspired them in 2008.

Representative Kendrick Meek, the Democratic candidate for the United States Senate in the November 2nd mid-terms, also neglected to let Mr Obama's name pass his lips during an appearance with the former vice-president in a union hall.
Instead, the black congressman lauded "President Gore" - a reference to the 2000 election, when hanging chads in Florida and the US Supreme Court cost the Democrat the White House. 

[...]

In Tampa, neither Mr Gore nor Mr Meek made direct reference to Mr Obama's historic health care legislation, his proudest achievement, or the financial bailout. Both measures are unpopular with all but hardcore Democratic supporters.
Two years ago, every Democrat in the country was invoking Mr Obama's name as they hoped to ride on his coat-tails to electoral victory. This year, he is a near-pariah, with many of the party's candidates doing everything they can to distance themselves from him.

Truly, remarkably pathetic.

They don't even have the race card to play anymore. Mr. Obama is so unpopular that accusing those who oppose him as racists would brand 2/3 of the nation as virtual Kluxers. Not even liberals are stupid enough to do that.

One month to go and there aren't enough rocks and crevices that these Democrats can try and hide from their record - and the incompetent leadership of the president.
