Joni Ernst Seeks to Walk Back Talk of Impeaching Obama
Yahoo News ^ | Tuesday, July 8, 2014 | Meredith Shiner

Republican Iowa U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst attempted Tuesday night to walk back statements made at a January event in which she said President Barack Obama had “become a dictator” who should be “removed from office” or face “impeachment.”

In a statement provided to Yahoo News, reacting to a story published earlier Tuesday, Ernst said that she did not believe Obama is a dictator but rather “his repeated use of unilateral action sure makes him look like one.”

“To be clear, I have not seen any evidence that the President should be impeached,” the statement read.

“Joni” has a RINO/GOP-e “Streak’ to her. She is “Buds” with our RINO/GOP-e “Governor” “Terry” and “BFFs” with our Lt Gov. I will vote for her in Nov BUT she bears CLOSE watching.

I had high hopes for Joni Ernst. She has suddenly turned into a groveling RINO sissy. You don’t walk back a comment like that. You double down. If she can’t see grounds for impeachment in Obama, then she is a political idiot.

This whole Odumbo debacle has a nice way of flushing out the losers on both sides. :-) She needs to be voted out next election.

Mitch McConnell or Mitt Romney probably gave her a call. “hey, we don’t talk like that. We have to talk like we’re on NPR or like we have marbles in our mouth.”

... or lips firmly planted on 0bama's backside.

Hussein probably dredged up some "interesting" facts in her background, or made her an offer she couldn't refuse.

Joni talked conservative in the Primary.

Now that she has the nomination, she turns into a RINO.

We conservatives routinely get betrayed by candidates like her.

She will be another Lisa Murkowski. I would not vote for her.

Betrayal is the worst kind of pain.

It is what Team Romney does.
They lie and PRETEND to be conservative.
Then they backstab the conservatives.
Then they back the Democrats. Always.

Agreed. I think “walking back” her remarks will do her more harm than the original statement. Well, except with Karl and the GOPe.

In January 2008, then-Obama-worshiping sycophant, now Obama-worshiping sycophant reporter Meredith Shiner wrote on her “Rise and Shiner” blog…

“ Still haven’t gotten my absentee ballot. Still working on it. Still hoping to vote for Barack Obama. But, in the meantime, Barack won South Carolina—with, dare I say it, gumption. Take that Bill, er, Hillary. Politics of hope>politics of fear, bitch.

The Clintons are using race to scare voters, and hopefully Americans are sharp enough to see through it.

Glad you're still around. Sent her some money for the primaries. Why run to the middle? Here some solid Dan Gable advice for Joni and others. Or as Frederick the Great said, "de l'au·dace, en·core de l'au·dace, et tou·jours de l'au·dace."
