GOP Candidate Joni Ernst Says Obama Is Both ‘Apathetic’ And A ‘Dictator’
Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst (R-Hog castrator), depending on her mood or access to a dictionary, either thinks President Obama is a president that who refuses to lead, or is an evil “dictator” who is constantly “overstepping his bounds.”
[su_center_ad]The two descriptions are contrary to each other, but Ernst, the Sarah Palin of Iowa, is throwing the same red meat her colleagues have hurled time and time again and it seems to be effective for her party’s fringe base.
“We have an apathetic president,” she told a crowd in Newton, Iowa, as part of her 24-hour get out the vote tour around the country, according to the Washington Post.
After the event, Ernst was asked to explain her statement.
“He is just standing back and letting things happen, he is reactive rather than proactive,” Ernst said. “With Ebola, he’s been very hands off.”
“What should he have done about Ebola?” Charlie Pierce of Esquire asked her. “One person in America has Ebola.”
“OK, you’re the press, you’re giving me your opinion,” Ernst said.
“It’s not an opinion, only one person in America has it,” he said.
“But he is the leader, he is the leader of our nation,” she responded. “So what he can do is make sure that all of these agencies are coordinating together, to make sure he is sharing with the American people he cares about them, he cares about their safety.”
“You don’t think he does?” he said.
“I don’t know that he does, he hasn’t demonstrated that,” she said.
“You don’t think he’s demonstrated that he cares about the American people?” he asked.
“He hasn’t,” she concluded. “I’m done. So anybody else?”
That’s when she was asked about her two thoughts, that Obama acts like a dictator and somebody who doesn’t even care enough to act.
“That’s where he is a leader. So many of the actions that he proposes taking are actions that should be done by Congress. Not by the president. He is our executive. He is our leader. He is our president. Congress should be making the legislative actions,” she said without answering the question.
A dictator wields absolute authority. If Obama’s apathetic, then he shows little interest. You know, just like Hitler. We all remember how Hitler used to say, “Can’t we all just get along?” [su_csky_ad]
