Outsider looks like an insider in trouble.
He may have more $$$ after the event to explain why he had the event at all.
So a party representing itself as the connection to the downtrodden can pony up lots of $$$ to make sure they keep control.

Obama isn’t going to show in the 2nd or 5th Districts where the blue collar economy is comatose. Time to see if the Gold Coast hedgies cough up to cover themselves with the current administration

Simply mind-boggling. In this political climate, Democrats in general are taking a huge gamble attaching themselves to Obama.

But that goes triple for ol’ Blumy, who’s already tried to run the other way with that “I’m not an insider” softshoe routine he pulled. Now he’s going in reverse and buddying up to the President?

Linda McMahon’s ad will write itself.

Bringing Obama to Connecticut will prove to be a plus for Blumenthal and Malloy.

“Bringing Obama to Connecticut will prove to be a plus for Blumenthal and Malloy.”

I agree.
