Really gets rolling around 01:48.

Braley is a great congressman. Look up a video of his classic questioning of Lurita Doan if you get a chance.

3. For Walker to even form his lips to say...
"That post was five levels beneath mine" to give himself some sort of distance from the promotion decision is an insult to my intelligence.

Does he think that people believe that the person in charge of making sure that this post got a permanent occupant looked at the three resumes of those up for the promotion and thought, "Wow the resume of this young man without a college degree completely outshines these other two guys with doctorates."

That's what Walker thinks we will believe. What a condescending jerk.

8. One thing you must keep in mind......
Repubs think everyone's as stupid as they are. That's why they and the tea partiers serve each other so well - both assume the other's playing with the same deck of cards.

Kyl's statement the other day - about Planned Parenthood being 90% abortion-oriented. He's ASSuming no one's going to fact check him - hey - he's the smart one! DOH! :dunce: :dunce: :dunce: :dunce: :dunce: <- Tea Party rally -> :dunce: :dunce: :dunce: :dunce: :dunce:

10. ...and after trying to distance himself he says he has the employee removed but nothing about
the people who hired him in the first place who should have been held responsible. So kid gets hired by someone, it comes out he wasn't the best qualified, walker who had nothing to do with the hire "removes" the kid. There. All fixed.

Seems he may be leaving himself open to a possible lawsuit from the kid as well as the qualified applicants...?

I want to know who hired the kid and why.

17. Braley. Bruce Braley. I recommend that you remember that name.
You will be hearing it again, if there's any justice left in this world at all.

I always listen when he's a guest on Iowa Public Radio and he always leaves me thinking there's hope for a system that has people like him in it.

6. Walker is the perfect example of a bought- and- paid- for politician.
He was a real good deal for his donors. I wonder if they paid him extra for that goofy mouth open stare he does so well.

9. I'm surprised Issa wasn't all over Braley. Issa's got problems of his own.
The lucky rotten bastard, Issa, might have an investigation on his gaming the system for personal gain. The asshole.

15. Screw Issa!
Is it his function to provide cover for Wanker?

It was blatantly obvious what he was doing! He should be removed for interference with the honesty of the proceedings.
