the swiftboating begins - rep. steve king (R-Fuckhead)
i know this has been posted, but i just saw him saying this shit on tv..

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- An Iowa Republican congressman said Friday that terrorists would be ''dancing in the streets'' if Democratic candidate Barack Obama were to win the presidency.

Rep. Steve King based his prediction on Obama's pledge to pull troops out of Iraq, his Kenyan heritage and his middle name, Hussein.

3. It is quite obvious that Hillary has enlisted...
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 10:25 AM by TwoSparkles
...her Republicans friends to help her destroy Obama.

Republicans now are coming out against Obama, including right-wing hate radio. Glenn Beck, Hannity
and Limbaugh are actually telling their listeners to cross over and vote for Obama in our primary.

Does anyone actually believe that this is an accident...and that the Republicans decided to jump in
and help Hillary all on their own?

The Republicans don't want to run against Obama. That is clear by the way they are now taking time
out of their schedules to caucus and pull the lever for Hillary. She is one of the most hated politicians
in Republican circles. They can't wait to run against her. They're not voting for her because they agree
with her. I heard several of Beck's listeners saying that they were depressed and felt "like I need to take
a shower now", after voting for Hillary.

I don't think there were enough of these votes to affect the TX and OH contests. However, I do think that
it's very clear that Hillary has reached across the aisle. The Republicans and Hillary have something
in common--the both want Hillary--and not Obama--on the ticket.

"The enemy of my enemy is my friend" is playing out here.

6. Well put.
Hearing that Limbots were instructed to vote for Clinton in Texas certainly was a sign.
Limbaugh said that the RNC has been issued written requests that everyone take it easy on Obama.
He claimed that his motivation is to solely to draw out the Dem. primary battle to bloody Obama.
The more likely scenario is that they are MUCH more confident in their ability to beat Clinton.
No matter how you dissect it, Clinton energizes the 'pug base.
They know how to run against Hillary, but Obama...not so much.

10. she earned the fact that this could be true by her own devious and
underhanded actions.

I do not have any trust in or respect for her left.

If the public plays into this, then all that means is McCain is inevitable. They'd never fall for Hillary over McCain.

peace~

4. Iowa's great gift to the nation
Best quote-In June 2006, King stated, "My wife lives here with me, and I can tell you shes at far greater risk being a civilian in Washington, D.C., than an average civilian in Iraq.

9. Republicans are still scared of an Obama nomination.
Sadly, Clinton's campaign is egging them on toward this irresponsible rhetoric.

11. LOL... dancing terrorists are "happy" terrorists. Does this mean
Al Queda would be so happy they would no longer consider the USA their implacable enemy and give up the Jihad?

16. what an idiot
:sigh: too bad breathing is an unconscious reflex. These feckers would be dropping like flies in a snowstorm.

terrorists would be ''dancing in the streets''

I wonder, are the two brain cells you have left, dancing in the empty space in your head?
