  •  I am looking forward to your policy positions (5+ / 0-)

    I always respect those Progressives who come here stating the desire to fix all things. Thus said, so many of us (about 1/3rd of the site) have recently felt burned by President Obama's troop escalation decision in Afghanistan. President Obama himself once joined this site and asked for our support early in his race as well.

    More recently, we've had wonderful conversations with Alan Grayson, John Garamendi, Lois Herr, Marcy Winograd, and Louise Slaughter, amongst others!

    I look forward to dialog when you are ready to more specifically outline your positions, particularly regarding the Afghanistan War, as well as your stance on immigration reform, and of course agricultural issues in Iowa. About half of my family lives in nearby "bread basket" states, so that is an issue I've heard is very important.

    Thanks for dropping by. Eager to hear more, Ms. Conlin!

    •  Here in New York, we are represented by an (0+ / 0-)

      an appointed chameleon and a non-liberal (being charitable).

      New York is pumped as a liberal state but is not despite the allegations.

      Sure hope there is a chance for Iowa to do better in what is likely IMHO to be a bloodbath for Democrats because of a president who promised change and gave us more of the same.

      I have no idea where Ms. Conlin stands.  Obviously she is running against what has been an Untouchable thriving on a reputation as a true maverick.  Grassley is really just a routine winger, who somehow manages to be dumber than most and makes a virtue of that.

      Perhaps a bit of red meat, which Iowa is known for, will do the trick.  The Midwest and South are known for their populists, unlike the coastal liberal pretenders.

      Will be watching.

      Maybe there is some small bit of hope left.  No advice here, just a wee bit of hope left.

      Best,  Terry

      Because if you 'feel burnt' over something Obama clearly said he would do multiple times I gotta wonder how closely you were listening.

      That said I agree with the meat of your comment, I'd like to hear more about Ms Conlin's positions on policies and what plans she has and so on. Call me cynical but it's become very fashionable to declare on DK, ask for money and then not come back.

      Still I would think anyone would be better then Grassley

    •  Scuse me but you are just making stuff up. (0+ / 0-)

      President Obama himself once joined this site and asked for our support early in his race as well.

      Obama came here just twice – in 2005 – when he was not running for anything. He did not ask for support; he asked that we consider tone when we disagreed with someone on an issue. That we might want them to agree with us someday. He was widely excoriated, yet he had the courtesy to come back and thank us for the feedback.

      I really hate it when someone wants to slam Obama (and other) by distortion or in this case an outright lie.

      We are in a time where it is risky NOT to change. Barack Obama 7-30-08
