A line from Obama’s economic speech on Thursday is giving Republicans more material to continue slamming their opponents as Obama surrogates. That tactic has been key to Republicans’ midterm strategy this cycle, at a time when a majority of Americans — 52% according to the latest CNN/ORC poll — disapprove of the President’s job.
“I am not on the ballot this fall,” Obama said at Northwestern University on Thursday. “But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”
Rep. Cory Gardner, the Republican nominee for Senate in Colorado, already played up the line during an interview Friday.
