Casey talks Obama, 2012 Campaign

Senator Bob Casey hosted a “Brewskis with Bob” event for Democrats this evening at their state committee meeting. In a brief conversation with PoliticsPA, Casey spoke briefly about the 2012 campaign.

PoliticsPA asked Casey is he thought PResident Obama was a political asset or a liability.

“I’ll leave that to the political scientists,” said Casey. “Voters don’t vote in a block any more. I think they look at what they know about the candidate, and what they know about the challenger”

Asked about a campaign manager, Casey said they didn’t have one yet.

“We’ll have one in place, we don’t have one in place. In the early going of a campaign like this, at least in Pennsylvania, mostly you have fundraisers. We have fundraisers.”

At his event and during his speech at the committee dinner, Casey mostly emphasized the incremental economic progress in the country. He pointed to the latest jobs numbers, which showed a decline in unemployment nationally and in PA.

  1. In light of the recent events that have been taking place in our country such rising gas prices due to wall st. speculation, the attack on the middle class by Wisconsin republicans, and the disenfranchisement of the vulnerable in the name of fiscal responsibility, I have realized that who we elect to office is extremely, EXTREMELY important. Making music is something I have been working on for many years and I think I can make a huge contribution by using my musical skills to support positive progressive change in this country. I don’t mean to offend anyone with my political views but I am a democrat and I will support Barack Obama in 2012. If you also support Obama for re-election in 2012, I would encourage you to distribute this video link to as many people as you can. Sure it would benefit me because I made the song, but it could also benefit the nation by helping re-elect the same president who brought us the Affordable Care Act, withdrew the majority of our troops from Iraq and is not a puppet for the rich and powerful. If you’re with me and you like the song, pass it along:

    I would appreciate it and I think your president would too.

  2. Casey does not require a campaign manager. He is wholly owned by the unions and it is the unions who determine what he will say, when he will say it, and when they tell Casey to jump he asks, “How high.”

    The man is an embarrassment and does not possess enough intelligence to conceal the fact that he is nothing more than a front person for the unions.
