Politically Speaking: King: Obama victory would please terrorists

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

During the March 7 announcement of his re-election plans for Congress,
Steve King said "I've taken a few arrows" for telling the hard truths
that people don't like hearing. Later that very day, in an interview
with a Spencer newspaper reporter, the three-term Republican said yet
another thing that infuriated many people. King has a habit of holding
forth in a way that causes a furor -- and harms his chances of winning
statewide office. King said terrorists would "be dancing in the
streets" if Democratic candidate Barack Obama won the presidency. King
said that was true, because of Obama's pledge to pull troops out of
Iraq, his Kenyan heritage and his middle name, Hussein.
