Carnahan, Obama share much more than a birthday
August 4, 2010
To celebrate, Missouri GOP delivers cake to Carnahan’s office
Robin Carnahan and Barack Obama were both born on August 4, 1961. To celebrate their 49th birthday, the Missouri Republican Party today delivered a birthday cake to Carnahan’s campaign headquarters in Clayton.
Photos of the delivery of the Missouri Republican Party’s gift can be viewed here.
“Robin Carnahan and Barack Obama have a lot in common—their support for the federal health care takeover, the failed stimulus bill, the job-killing cap-and-tax legislation, among many other things, so it’s fitting that they also share a birthday. This week, Missourians went to the polls and gave Rubberstamp Robin and President Obama a gift of their own—voting 71% to reject the Obama-Carnahan health care scheme,” said Lloyd Smith, Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party. “The bond between Rubberstamp Robin and Obama is so strong that she has continued to stand with him, even as his job approval plummets and Missourians overwhelmingly reject their brand of extreme liberalism”
Carnahan and Obama have much more in common than just the date of their birth—they also share a liberal worldview and a desire to force their reckless agenda on Missourians at any cost. In fact, over the past 18 months, Robin Carnahan has announced her rubberstamp support for every major component of the reckless Obama agenda:

It has been used according to military experts, as a recruiting tool to get more terrorists to attack us, and so we need to do things that reflect our values. One of those is not to have these kind of off-shore prisons.” (Springfield News-Leader, February 7, 2010)
