Iowa Congressman Steve King has reassured all Americans that the poisonous chords of racism, bigotry, fear mongering and hatred are alive and well.

In a despicable and disgusting display of anti-American vitriol, King appeared on an Iowa radio station and told the audience that terrorists would be dancing in the streets if Senator Barack Obama were elected president. In fact, the despicable anti-American spirit, Steve King said, “”And I will tell you that, if he is elected president, then the, the radical Islamists, the, the alQaeda, and the radical Islamists and their supporters, will be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on September 11….”

Congressman King went on to say, “”I’ll just say this that when you think about the optics of a Barack Obama potentially getting elected President of the United States — and I mean, what does this look like to the rest of the world?” Congressman King certainly seems to be talking about Obama’s skin color in a way that would make any racist beam with pride.

Steve King happens to be a Republican, but this writer would like to think that all Americans, regardless of party, would quickly condemn his disgusting and destructive display of anti-American sentiments.

In fact, the anti-American spirit sentiments of Steve King seem more closely wedded to the sentiments of a KKK handbook than they do the American spirit.


I wish I could like Hillary Clinton, but I can’t. I wish I could trust Hillary Clinton, but I can’t. I wish I could believe in Hillary Clinton’s heart and courage, but I can’t.

I am not the only one noticing the scuff marks of Clinton campaign shoe leather on Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland’s remarks in Sunday’s edition of The Columbus Dispatch. Strickland sharply criticized Iowa caucuses calling them “hugely undemocratic” because they “exclude so many people.” Wow! Really, Gov? Is that why you campaigned in Iowa with Clinton this weekend? Or did you guys use that time to create this rather obvious political ruse?

After Strickland’s remarks, the Clinton campaign quickly fired off a statement saying, in part, that Senator Clinton has “worked her heart out campaigning in Iowa because she knows it plays a unique and special role in the nominating process and that process must be protected.”

Please. Protected from what? Like it’s under attack? Spare me. Were Clinton the clear leader in Iowa, Strickland and Clinton would be calling the Iowa caucuses textbook democracy.

Even more revealing, the Clinton Campaign announced she would not be in Iowa caucus night because she needs to move on to New Hampshire.

So what about your heart and courage, Senator? Don’t you have the heart and courage to stand with your Iowa supporters and staff when the results some in? Apparently you don’t. Now that I do believe.
