The wave is breaking the repudiation of the idiocy that is Obama and company is cresting. A seat that was a throw away to the Dems, one held by yet another stalwart Liberal a-hole named Harkin will be going to the R side.

This guy is akin to Akin. Well the Dems running away from this buffoon will see a new commercial very soon. What a tool.
Make no mistake: Democrats running from President Barack Obama aren’t actually all that distant from him.
That’s the message that Obama himself delivered Monday, speaking on...

When President Obama addresses the nation on Wednesday to explain his plan to defeat Islamic extremists in Iraq and Syria, it is a fair bet he will not call them the “JV team.”

I hope this evil fricker packs it in.
