    Tsk tsk!  Coughing up Mr Will's exspecialy tepid "gotcha moment" from this morning.  Does riverdan1900 agree with Mr Will's assertaion, I wonder, that "the Obama's" are running for President?  Two-thirds of Mr Will's breathtaking expose of ArugulaGate comprised comments made by the candidate's spouse.  This is thin broth even for the vastly over-rate, over-exposed George Will.

    And here comes our riverdan regurgitating same - and chiding Democrats for a circular firing squad. Too rich.  

    Take your fear and shove it, it ain't workin' on us no more.

      from many different Dem sources, I just thought we had trademarked it!  Don't get me started on Arugula, Whole Foods, Iowa in association with Obama. That WAS bad, discussing agri-bus using those examples with corn farmers! Had them scratching their heads. See how all these forgotten mistakes keep reappearing? Now I'll go read Will and see what the hell you're talking about? Oh, by the way, you certainly read him and you did regurgitate whatever he wrote, doncha know?

        Yes, George Will (This Week, ABC) is the personification of the American Common Man. No one is in touch quite like bow-tie boy.  It is clear from Sen Oama's dismal electoral record since Iowa that ArugulaGate is proof-positive that this incident has doomed his campaign.

        Now hie theee back back to RedState or whatever GOP echo chamber where you get your 'news'.

      •  repeating the Dukakis "belgian endive" fiasco (0+ / 0-)

        I do think this was an error by Obama, unfortunately.  Though arugula and endive could both be grown in Iowa, there are some pretty significant problems with both -- notably that there are planting restrictions associated with program base acres for direct payments to producers (in other words, growing these specialty crops on land previously used for corn would mean the producer would not get their annual government check); and that these kinds of products require hand labor to harvest -- i.e. migrant labor, for which there just is not enough work in the midwest to make viable.
