Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 4th,2014

.. boy , did she ever let him have it …

.. [link] to the blog news …

.. she had every right to be mad . To be honest , so does the GOP …

.. the LameStream Media is guilty of gross hypocricy . If a GOP candidate , especially a sitting officeholder [or party leader] pulled this kind of stunt , most every GOP candidate around the country would be being badgered to no end about The question . so , the GOP has a right to be pissed about the media ‘ s response to this blunder …

… Zinger ! [#Joni Ernst]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 25th,2014

.. it is why Jni Ernst is my choice to be Iowa ‘ s next and newest GOP US Senator …

.. Bruce ” Gaffes ” Braley was trying to make a point in a recent campaign debate with Ernst . It dealt with Iraq , I.S.I.L. , and ” boots on the ground …. ”

.. [h/t — Twitchy.com]…
.. [link] to the debate zinger …

.. Ernst pounced , and hit Braley with a right uppercut . Joni reminded the debate [and viewing] audience that she commands a battalion in Iowa ‘ s National Guard . She was one of those ” boots on the ground … ”

.. by the by , the term is ” ground troops , ” folks ….

… 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 …

… Joni surges Ahead [#IA US Senate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 4th,2014

.. Go , Joni , Go !! …

.. you bet I want Joni Ernst to win . She has run a fabulous campaign campaign . She has received some fairly lucky breaks , which always helps . Also , Terry Branstad running [likely a success] for re-election is a very huge help for her campaign …

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

.. having a royal screw – up for an opponent is even better . He opponent , Iowa congresscritter Bruce Braley has run a disaster for a campaign . Even worse , he has made several ill – timed mega – gaffes at several critical points in the campaign …

.. now , Joni leads bruce 44% to 38% , with an independent [left – leaning] with 6% , and 12% undecided . That is good . Braley is an incumbent , so the pressure is on him , not her . Also , with the left – leaner in the race , it hurts Braley …

.. so , Joni only needs to get to 48% (or better) to get clear of Braley for good . There is still work to do , though , and the debate season is now upon us …

… 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 !! …

… 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 …

… It is Joni Ernst in Iowa …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,June 6th,2014

.. she had a very , very good night , getting almost 60.0 % of the Republican primary vote …

.. her ads have been fantastic in the primary . They were in large part a part of the reason that she pulled away from her primary competition . Now , it is off to the general election matchup with Bruce Braley . I like her chances …

.. it will be interesting to see who hits who in the political ad war , and takes over the theme of the campaign . It is always good to take the initiative from your opponent . Carpe Diem , aka , Seize the Day . Never let the initiative go …

.. Go , Joni , Go ! …
