Yesterday, we told you about how Senator Sherrod Brown was nowhere to be seen when Barack Obama spoke in suburban Cleveland yesterday.
Sherrod can’t use Senate business as an excuse. He is in Ohio today.
What Sherrod and Obama WANT you to believe is that he had pre-existing appointments. But we are talking about the President of the United States here. Most members of Congress are eager to be seen with the leader of the free world in front of their constituents.
And when you look at Sherrod Brown’s history of attending Obama’s visits to Ohio, his excuse makes even less sense.
The President was at the high school from roughly 12:45 to 2:15. Where was Sherrod Brown, who is also up for reelection this year, during that time period?
Watch the video below, where Senator Brown was seen entering Mitchell’s Steakhouse at 12:15 and hiding out from Obama in there until 1:30.
Sherrod Brown votes with Obama’s positions 98% of the time. So, why is he so afraid to stand publicly with the president in front of his fellow Ohioans?
