Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold last month:
“I’m pleased to stand with this president any time and anywhere and defend what we’ve done and what we’re doing,” the senator added.
Aw, money can’t buy that kind of loyalty!
Fast-forward the tape to this coming weekend:
When President Barack Obama visits Milwaukee on Labor Day to talk to working families and members of dozens of labor unions, one prominent politician won’t be there.
A Labor Day schedule released by the staff of U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) indicates that while Feingold will be in Milwaukee for a Laborfest pre-parade on Monday morning, he will not be in town when Obama is expected to arrive.
When these guys say they have “something else on the schedule,” that “something” is desperate attempts to save their political careers.
