Excuse me, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D), but is that Barack Obama’s dagger in your back?

This was just mean:

Former Bay State U.S. Senator Scott Brown is reacting to President Obama’s comments about his potential Senate run in New Hampshire.

“I’d be happy to – you know, if Scott Brown wants to move down to Texas, you know, then we could always use some moderate Republicans in other parts of the country…”

Or possibly just stupidly incompetent of the President.  Either explanation will do.

PS: If you don’t feel like clicking through: Scott Brown’s reaction to Barack Obama was a big, hearty “Thank you” for the President’s preemptive stepping on the inevitable Democratic narrative.  Admittedly, trying to paint Brown as a radical conservative was always going to be a stretch, but it will do the man no harm to have Obama himself on tape contradicting the Democrats’ agitprop.  Plus, it will help Scott Brown argue that opposing Obamacare is in itself a legitimate position for moderates to take: after all, he’s a moderate, and he opposes that law tooth and nail, right? …Unlike Jeanne Shaheen, who was of course the woman who ensured that Obamacare became law.

PPS: I would be remiss to not mention that New Hampshire Republicans have not yet decided on a candidate for Senate.

    It warms the dark-chocolate-coated cockles of my heart to see this, Moe. It really does.

    Such devotion to the D party, such deft leadership by its’ most prominent elected official, such brilliant political maneuvering.

    I’ll take “Stupidly Incompetent” for $200, Alex.

    Obama is so concerned about trying to make people like Ted Cruz look like radical extremists, that he failed to consider the fact that his comments would undermine the narrative to paint Scott Brown as an extremist.

    I don’t think this was deliberate on his part, but it does show he is an ideologue.
