Binders, bottles and bread-bags
It’s a strategy of the Left. If you have nothing substantive in your argument you either a) demonize your opponent by calling them crazy etc. or b) throw out a “squirrel”.
Remember when Romney mentioned “binders full of women” referring to his hiring practices during a debate? Remember when Marco Rubio dared take a sip of water from a small water bottle during a GOP rebuttal? Now, the latest is “bread bags”.
Sure, why not? Is that the best you have? If the libs can yell, “Squirrel” to distract the lap-dog media, why then no one will look at what Joni Ernst said, right?
What were they distracting from? Let’s look at some of the things Joni said that the libs would rather you not think about…let them do the thinking for you.
We see our neighbors agonize over stagnant wages and lost jobs. We see the hurt caused by canceled healthcare plans and higher monthly insurance bills. We see too many moms and dads put their own dreams on hold while growing more fearful about the kind of future they’ll be able to leave to their children.
…One you’ve probably heard about is the Keystone jobs bill. President Obama has been delaying this bipartisan infrastructure project for years, even though many members of his party, unions, and a strong majority of Americans support it. The President’s own State Department has said Keystone’s construction could support thousands of jobs and pump billions into our economy, and do it with minimal environmental impact.
…You’ll see a lot of serious work in this new Congress.
Some of it will occur where I stand tonight, in the Armed Services Committee room. This is where I’ll join committee colleagues — Republicans and Democrats — to discuss ways to support our exceptional military and its mission. This is where we’ll debate strategies to confront terrorism and the threats posed by Al Qaeda, ISIL, and those radicalized by them.
We know threats like these can’t just be wished away. We’ve been reminded of terrorism’s reach both at home and abroad; most recently in France and Nigeria, but also in places like Canada and Australia. Our hearts go out to all the innocent victims of terrorism and their loved ones. We can only imagine the depth of their grief.
Joni is a veteran, and loves her country; that may be why the liberals want to silence her.
