Incumbent Democrats in Congress are bowing out at an unprecedented rate.
They're jumping ship.
Perhaps many of them are weary of President Obama's evasive zigzags, numerous explanations for countless failures, endless finger-pointing, pompous unwillingness to listen to anyone but himself and his dreary disengagement.
They voted for Obamacare, they're watching it crash and burn and they just don't wanna face angry voters this fall. Also, five years on and the economy still sputters. The vaulted Obama stimulus that they voted for and funded hasn't worked either. They smell trouble ahead. And these members of Congress want out.
And now another is jumping ship.
New Jersey Congressman Rush Holt likes to call himself a "progressive."
But you know what that means. He's just another Obama-apologist/liberal who's running for cover.
Of course, the congressman denies that he bailing. Holt, a research physicist simply says he "wants to pursue other interests."
Holt has represented New Jersey’s 12th district since 1998, and is known by many as the man who beat the computer program Watson in the "Jeopardy!" game show. He is the 13th Democrat to slip out the back door so far this year.
