How embarrassing it must be for King, knowing that Tom Latham was the Republican Party's first pick.

See what you like, MZ/duke, but your comprehension seems deficient - nothing written there indicates Latham was anyone's "first choice", and the word "thinking" does not appear. On the basis of experience and understanding of our federal system. i.e. state vs. federal responsibilities AND capabilities, how about Branstad? He'd surely win. Ponder that, if you like.

Headline writer's word, not King's. But duke's Mz's comments, as those of Brucee, are so typical of the left, right up to Obama's thuggish White House, which has just been caught warning former liberal icons Bob Woodward (of Watergate fame) and Lanny Davis (Clinton's White House Counsel) that they would "regret" publishing reports fingering Obama and his White House as the real source of the sequestration gimmick Obama now loudly and incessantly proclaims a Republican idea that will sink the economy. All duly denied, of course; but then the National Journal editor says he, too, was threatened - by none less than Obama's National Economic Council Director, Gene Sperling. This on top of Obama's Re-election-Committee-turned-tax-free Committee-for-Action SELLING quarterly ACCESS to Obama at $500,000 a pop! Lies, threats, intimidation - seems one can take Obama & Co. out of Chicago, but not Chicago out of Obama & Co!

King should run for Senate. He could expand his scope and become an embarrassment to all Iowans instead of just those in the Northwest quadrant.

King is like a wart that just won't go away. I get a kick out of some of my republican friends that say the only reason they voted for him is because his opponet just moved into the district to run. How soon they forget Latham did the same thing. It's all about power and corruption for these good ole boys.

How much more embarrassing for King that the "Anybody but King" faction of the GOP immediately started pushing Kim Reynolds as a senatorial candidate in the wake of Latham's decision not to run.

Yeah, , duke, and always the same bevy of leftist propagandists without an original idea to contribute among them - hope you have one sometime.
