Are Senate Dems Up in 2014 Flipping and Flopping Just to Save Their Hides?

Up for reelection in 2014, Senators Baucus, Begich, Pryor, and Hgan, are trying to find a more conservative tone -- never mind all their liberal votes. But when you look at their conservative ratings in the 2nd session of the last Congress, the numbers tell a different story -- Baucus 9%, Begich 6%, Hagan 4%, and Pryor 14%. When you consider that the entire Senate is rated 38% conservative, the rating of these four senators isn't very conservative at all.

In 2012, Obama lost the states that each one of these senators represent by an average of 13%. North Carolina, represented by Hagan, was the closest as it was only carried by Mitt Romney by 2.2%.

For example on the Democrats' big spending and more taxes budget proposal, not one of this Gang of Four -- Baucus, Begich, Hagan, and Pryor -- voted for it.

It's the same old story for these kind of Democrats -- speak conservative at home but vote liberal in Wasihngton, DC -- except when you're up soon for reelection.
