Even though President Obama cancelled a visit to New Jersey as well to address an Ebola response, and state Democratic leaders say he will return to Connecticut, Bridgeport Republican Town Chair John Slater questions in a statement the motive behind the president postponing his Bridgeport visit Wednesday, adding “I find this to be a convenient cover story and believe the truth to be that Governor Malloy and Congressman Himes weren’t planning on being in attendance or associated with such an unpopular President in the heat of an election season.” Slater statement:
According to Mayor Finch “You can see President Obama’s fingerprints on all of our major projects.” I agree with the Mayor … High unemployment and outrageous taxes definitely have the President’s fingerprints on display.
In fact, no sitting President has ever treated Bridgeport as treacherously as President Obama. Why has President Obama decided to deal with this terrible Ebola situation at such a late stage of the game? Let’s be honest, a real leader would have issued a travel ban to stop infected people from entering the United States after leaving countries suffering from the Ebola epidemic. But this is just another situation that President Obama has seen through the rear view mirror.
I’d also question if Governor Malloy or Congressman Himes were planning on attending Wednesday’s rally in the first place. Democrats all over the country have been distancing themselves from the President so why wouldn’t they?
There are a lot of questions still remaining as to the short notice cancellation of Wednesday’s rally. In my opinion, I find this to be a convenient cover story and believe the truth to be that Governor Malloy and Congressman Himes weren’t planning on being in attendance or associated with such an unpopular President in the heat of an election season.
