Blog for Iowa: Grassley challenger Tom Fiegen talks to Blog for Iowa about wedge issues and Fiegenomics
Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa
... As a bankruptcy lawyer, I see people in dire straits every day,
and I heard him saying that it's not that bad - if you look at the
Great Depression, it's not that bad, 10% unemployment is not bad -
and my first reaction is, who are you talking to, buddy? The second
thing is, as I look at what the President is trying to accomplish, I
see that there are people who either call themselves Blue Dog
Democrats or the Republicans that don't believe in the President, they
don't believe in the things he ran on, and they are resisting change.
A second factor besides disgust with the incumbent, is a desire to
help the president enact many of the programs he talked about,
especially health care. Third, I would say that I have something to
add to the U.S. Senate, to be one of the 100 people in the room,
talking about the problems facing the country, and what can we do to
solve those problems.
