(Video) CNN's John King: 'Amazing How Quickly Democrats Ran From Obama'Topics: Political News and commentaries
You know Obama's SOTU address was less than stellar ... and his policies and agenda are generally unpopular ... when even CNN's Chief National Correspondent John King goes so far as to note that Democrats ran from the unpopular president right after the speech was over.
CNNâ€™s Chief National Correspondent John King joined â€œNew Dayâ€ Wednesday to discuss the fallout from many Democrats after President Barack Obamaâ€™s State of the Union, saying it was telling how quickly they ran to criticize the presidentâ€™s proposals.
"What was telling after is how quickly vulnerable Senate Democrats were rushing to criticize the president," King said. "You had Mark Begich of Alaska. You had Mark Udall of Colorado. You had a senator not on the ballot but a race in his state, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, saying the president was overstepping on executive action."
King highlighted Begich's particular reluctance to campaign with President Obama: "[Begich] is saying 'I don't want the president to campaign for me. I want him to come to Alaska so I can tell him how wrong he is.'"
