Democrats are grasping at straws to maintain power.
With her poll numbers falling by the day and her senate seat slipping away La. Sen. Mary Landrieu pulled out the liberal standbys, the race and gender cards.
In an interview with NBC News Landrieu said the reason for her and President Obama’s low approval ratings is due to the South being sexist and racist.
“I’ll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans,” Landrieu told NBC News. “It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader…It’’s not always been a good place for women to present ourselves. It’s more of a conservative place.”
The remarks drew the ire of La. Gov. Bobby Jindal who issued a statement.
“She appears to be living in a different century,” he said. “Implied in her comments is the clear suggestion that President Obama and his policies are unpopular in Louisiana because of his ethnicity. That is a major insult by Senator Landrieu to the people of Louisiana and I flatly reject it.”
The Twitterverse had their say as well.
Mary Landrieu says her own constituents are racist…. now if you’re trying to win re-election… why would you insult your constituents?

@BobbyJindal Perhaps the People of Louisiana need to REJECT Mary Landrieu, once and for all.

Mary Landrieu is a sorry-assed human being. She can just take her happy ass out of the South for good, if its SO bad here. — AB (@southroncross) October 31, 2014
