At the South Carolina Freedom Summit on Saturday, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) blamed President Obama for the riots in Baltimore. “President Obama has consistently driven wedges between people.

As an Iowan, I apologize that Steve King broke out, got the funds, and flew to South Carolina, spouting more inanities outside of our state.

Chris, if you can explain for me please, ok they voted him in once but what is going on in Iowans collective minds in his district that they continue to send him back?
I don’t blame you but he really is past due for a psych eval. and a chair on his porch.

That may be, but anyone not Dan Quayle’s son has a chance to be an improvement.
Chris May 11th, 2015 at 10:51 pm
A chance. But check back with me next election time and I’ll bet he votes straight Republican, the same that Ben would.
