Michael Bennet Invites For Blindly Supporting President Biden
Senator Bennet has been among President Biden’s steadfast lieutenants. He has backed the president even on contentious decisions by the Biden administration like the withdrawal from Afghanistan and the multi-trillion dollar, Build Back Better Legislation.
O’Dea has hit out at Michael Bennet for being closer to Biden than to his people and has not put the interests of Colorado and the American people. He has branded Bennet as Biden’s senator and not Colorado’s. Speaking for himself, he assured residents that he is not under the control of any political party and would put Colorado and its working residents above all else.
Critics have said that Senator Bennet’s blind loyalty to the president has turned him into the least effective Senator in the US Senate. O’Dea has said that his rival Michael Bennet was not bad as a person but all he has done so far was to vote along party lines. He also said that the Colorado Senator isn’t capable of getting anything done for his constituents.
