SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Vote for Loebsack

I am not a native Iowan, but having lived in Iowa for almost 50 years, I am very proud to consider myself an Iowan. Not long after moving here, I recognized Iowans’ steady and quiet determination to seek a fair-minded solution to problems and their ability to talk things out when presented with differences of opinion.

Many days now, it seems that so much could divide us. Even on those days, most Iowans hope for leaders who can and will reach out and work with others to get things done in a respectful way without the desire to be strident or to grandstand. That’s the kind of leader I want in Congress, and that’s why I will vote for Dave Loebsack for the U.S. House of Representatives. Dave Loebsack is a man of integrity. He is dedicated and he listens. Dave is one of those steady leaders who look for ways to bring us together, to work together, to show others the quiet, thoughtful, and fair-minded face of Iowa, the Iowa I love. The Iowa he loves. The Iowa we all love.

Online Comment on “Stercula: Obama isn’t to blame for ISIS”

The writer of this editorial has not followed news. His logic isn’t consistent. Further, no matter what you think about Bush and blame him for, this one is on Obama. He pulled troops out of Iraq before it was time. Every military person I’ve heard have faulted Obama for this and have said until we have boots on the ground, Obama’s plan won’t work.
