Manchin Declines Direct Response on Support for President in 2012

In an interview with POLITICO, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) “declined to say whether he would vote for the president in 2012, though he has repeatedly dismissed suggestions that he might switch parties.”

Asked if he’d back Obama’s reelection bid, Manchin wouldn’t answer directly.

“Whoever the president is, I support. That’s my president. Democrat, Republican, George Bush, Obama, and every American should take that approach,” Manchin told POLITICO in the Capitol. “Now can you respectfully disagree? Absolutely.”

Asked again if he would vote for Obama, Manchin said: “I support this country, whoever the president is, that’s who I support.”

    How do you spell flying asshole MANCHIN. This guy is so far up in Big Coal’s ass he can’t breathe. He’s no Democrat — he should have BC after his name for his real party — BIG COAL.
