Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) apparently has no shame.
In a recent debate with his Republican opponent Cory Gardner he had the audacity to invoke the names of beheaded journalists Steven Sotloff and James Foley in an effort to prove himself on the ISIS issue. In what can only be described as a disgusting display of selfishness he dared to imply that the two dead journalists would obviously side with President Obama (and by extension Udall) in the debate on how to proceed against ISIS.
“I can tell you Steve Sotloff and James Foley would tell us, ‘Don’t be impulsive,’ horrible and barbarous as those executions were – don’t be impulsive, come up with a plan. We’ll knock ISIL back (unintelligible)…”
Udall is in a tough fight for his seat as he leads Gardner by the slimmest of margins. One can only hope that Colorado voters will hold him accountable for his despicable comments and send Cory Gardner to Washington in his place…
