Ragister's editorial board, CommieTommie Harkin told the Capitol Square Crapper -- Progress on bills hindered by partisanship
Coming from a man who's been more a part of the problem rather than the solution and the scientific community is united in that fact.
On the same day, the Omaha World Herald has this story --
'The gridlock isn't as bad as it's made out to be,' says freshman Sen. Deb Fischer
Here's how CommieTommie contributes to the problem.
He brings his Dream-err tour to Congressman Steve King's district, without inviting him to attend, and without confronting him man to man on what King had said about illegals.
Also, in his Ragister meeting, Harkin offers this insight --
“I’m not naming any names, but one senator got up from a southern state and said, ‘Well, you’ve got to understand that to my people down here, Obama seems like’ – he thought for a second and he said – ‘like he’s exotic.’”
Name names or get lost!
Harkin said nothing when his leader Harry Reid referred to Obama as, "light skinned" and "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."
I guess that was okay, because Reid said it in "a private conversation, it was meant to be private" and it was off the record.
A spokeswoman for Harkin declined to offer further detail on the exchange, noting that it occurred in a closed-door meeting with only senators present.
Nor could Harkin be heard when his onetime Senate colleague, Joe Biden, said Obama was "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy".
As long as I've mentioned Harkin and his Dream-err tour, here's another non criminal illegal that came to Iowa to build a better life.
An illegal immigrant who was living in northeast Iowa under an assumed identity is now behind bars, accused of kidnapping and sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl.
Also, note the angle this Ragister reporter took when describing Harkin's meeting -- a question from a columnist about why Republicans seemed determined to see Obama fail.
Yet, the transcript of the event that the reporter included, says -- Why are so many people determined to see the president fail?
The media is part of the problem as well.
