"Without sounding braggadocios, I'm indispensable in this effort to secure for Louisiana a significant and reliable string of revenue to save our coast," Landrieu, 57, said in an interview.
She is, of course, referencing her work to save Louisiana's coastline which is important, but she's certainly not the only person to care about, or work for, that.
Senator Landrieu (D) is running for re-election in 2014, after seventeen years in the U.S. Senate. She has drawn one Republican challenger so far, Rep. Bill Cassidy from Louisiana's sixth congressional district in south-central Louisiana.
Rep. John Fleming has opted out of a challenge saying that he does not want to splinter
While Senator Landrieu has indeed supported the Keystone pipeline, her voting record is otherwise abysmally liberal. "Louisiana Purchase Mary" voted FOR Obamacare, FOR the 2009 stimulus bill, AGAINST the repeal of Obamacare, She has voted FOR gun-control measures and FOR online sales taxes.
While nobody is really "indispensable," Senator Landrieu does seem to think she's "kind of a big deal."
Senator Landrieu might think she's indispensable, but I think it's time she learned that someone else can do her job and better represent Louisiana's values. Rep. Cassidy's voting record to date is here. SIGIS will be posting more about Rep. Cassidy's record and accomplishments.
