… There is an Elitism , You Moron [#Bruce Braley megagaffe]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 7th,2014

.. here we go again ..

.. will this village idiot ever learn ? I seriously doubt it …

.. it is the principal reason that Congresscritter Bruce Braley [Village Idiot – Ia] is going to lose the Senate election to a fine candidate , conservative war veteran (and currently serving) Joni Ernst …

… Just as I suspected [#Iowa US Senate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 23rd,2014

.. especially so , considering it is a Quinnipiac University poll …

.. those Q polls are notorious for being DemoCrap – leaning in their sample distribution . So , the GOP does not look all that good in them , to say the least ….

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the campaign poll …

.. in this one , Joni Ernst has built a nice and healthy lead . She leads DemoCrap opponent Bruce Braley 50% to 44% , with 6% undecided . She only trails by 6 pts among women , but she has built a commanding 17 point lead among men , 56% to 39% …

.. Go , Joni , Go !! …

… Why am I not Surprised [#Bibi Bashing]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,September 22nd,2014

.. it seems that Wilhelm der Fibmeister is a little out of practice …

.. he forgot a primary rule of politics …

.. whenever you are anywhere near a microphone , treat it as ” Uncle Hot Mike … ”

.. it seems Mr. Bill forgot that …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the C-Span segment …

.. Mr. Bill has not forgotten his animosity towards Bibi Netanyahu , though . His comments hauled off on Bibi , and let the Israeli PM have it over the lack of ” progress ” in the so – called ” peace process … ” …

.. believe you me Bibi has not forgotten … Mr. Bill dispatched several of his electoral flunkies [including Paul Begala] to Israel in 1999 to help Labor Party leader Ehud Barak win the PM election against Netanyahu ….

.. the problem is (for Mr. Bill , et al…) is that the Israeli political landscape has changed , markedly …. Labor has effectively collapsed as a political party . It could resurrect itself , but that is highly unlikely . Kadima has been severely weakened …

.. the newer political forces in Israeli politics are all on the right . the Israeli left is in total disarry …

… Oops !! [#Bruce Braley megaGaffe]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,September 20th,2014

.. nice going , dumb – dumb ! ..

.. mega – gaffes like this are why farmer , gun – owner , conservative , and mom Joni Ernst is going to be Iowa ‘ s next Senator …

.. [h/t — WashingtonFreeBeacon]..
.. [link] to the news story …

.. it seems that the Des Moines Register itself got video of Congresscritter Braley marching in a Fourth of July parade . That is a standard staple for any office – seeker . Answering questions from someone in a crowd is not . Getting caught live on video is a huge , repeat , HUGE blunder …

.. you can count on this ending up in ads in this . It is why Braley is likely going to lose this race : His own big mouth …

.. [update] — got the video —

.. needs updating and clearing up for use in an ad , but is not a major problem …

… Bruce Braley strikes again !! [#mega gaffe]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,September 11th,2014

.. Braley is writing a new book . However , it is not a book any candidate wants to be caught writing …

.. in this case , it regards a congressional hearing . One , given the press attention , he has bragged about attending [on Veterans Affairs]. Slight problem , though …

.. [h/t — WashingtonFreeBeacon.com]..
.. [link] to the news story …

.. he was not there . Not in 2012 . Nor in 2013 , either . There is video evidence of both …

.. Whoops …

.. that is especially a problem , given who his opponent is . Joni Ernst , his Republican opponent (and a state senator in Iowa) , is also a lieutenant – colonel in the Iowa National Guard . Not in the past , though . She is a present officer in the Guard . She also did her two weeks summer duty this year , which got tons of press coverage right in the middle of the campaign …

.. also , Braley ‘ s last megagaffe [about the vacation home of a neighbor] came right in the middle of her summer duty …

… Bruce Braley cannot help It [#foot in mouth disease]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 15th,2014

.. right now , Bruce Braley has the political field pretty much to himself .

.. he really needs it ..

.. after several now – famous mega – gaffes , he was originally the favourite to win Tom Harkin ‘ s open Senate seat . Well , that is now well past . He is now the narrow underdog …

.. his Republican opponent , Joni Ernst , is on annual duty , training for the next 2 weeks with the Iowa National Guard . So , she cannot campaign . But other surrogates can , just not as well . So , Braley has the field …

.. so , what happens ??

.. Braley gets busted … complaining …. over a damn chicken …

.. [h/t — theIowaRepublican]..
.. [link] to the blog article …

.. absolutely beautiful , Bruce . You have the political field to yourself , and what happens ? You make a complete and total idiot of yourself … over a damn chicken . In Iowa , that is a real , really bad move . Chickens running around are not all that uncommon …

.. Big Deal … or so you might think …

.. I re – read the article …. It is much , much worse …

.. first , it is not Braley ‘ s primary home … it is his vacation home . It is in a development community that is a typical vacation home community . Except some of the folks use the area as their primary residence …

braley-lake-home

.. next , the neighbor who has the problem chickens is a therapist . A psychologist . Whoops … She is also an Air  Force veteran , and uses the chickens as therapy tools , you dummy Bruce ..

.. Braley complained to the community association . So , it told the therapist she had a month to crack the whip  , so  to speak , on her chickens , and properly enclose them . Evidently , she did , or is doing so …

.. but that was not good  enough for Braley …

.. what did he do ? he threatened to sue …. which figures , for a trial lawyer …

.. he did not think that this would get out …. but , oh boy , did it ever . The timing  could not be worse . Ernst is on National Guard duty , and Braley makes an idiot of himself …. nice contrast …

… Is Congresscritter Bruce Braley [D – IA] stuck on stoopid !?!?!…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 30th,2014

.. it appears that way ..

.. Braley already has a claim to fame by sticking his foot in his mouth over iowa ‘ s senior US Senator , Chuck Grasseley . Grasseley , who is 1 of 2 farmers in the US Senate , is an Iowa institution . Now , Braley ‘ s past has come back to haunt him …

.. the I.R.S. is unpopular enough as it is . The G.O.P. is hyper enough , given the re – election strength of Governor Terry Branstad . Republicans are hoping that strength rubs off on the US Senate campaign , which is for an open seat , with democrap Tom Harkin retiring (finally !!) ..

.. [h/t — RedState]..

.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. Braley was , it appears , one of 30 DemoCrap Congresscritters back in the Spring of 2012 who wrote a letter to then – IRS Commish Douglas Schulman , siccing the IRS on the Tea Party and related groups . It is the height of irony , given that the service was already doing the ObamaCrap Administration ‘ s bidding on the subject ..

.. nice one , dummy !! ..
