Posted on 03/26/2014 2:50:37 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued
Iowa Rep. Bruce Braley, a Democrat running for Senate, was caught on videotape disparaging fellow Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley as a farmer from Iowa who never went to law school comments that later drew an apology from the candidate.
The video, posted online Tuesday afternoon by GOP opposition research firm America Rising, shows Braley speaking to what the group described as a group of lawyers at a fundraiser in Texas.
If you help me win this race, you may have someone with your background, your experience, your voice someone whos been literally fighting tort reform for 30 years in a visible and public way on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Braley, a trial lawyer by training who is running to replace Iowa Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin. Or you might have a farmer from Iowa who never went to law school, never practiced law, serving as the next chair of the Senate Judiciary. Because if Democrats lose the majority, Chuck Grassley will be the next chair of the Senate Judiciary.

This came just as Joni Ernst ran her hog ad and Sarah Palin endorsed her. It could blow this race wide open.
That’s a great ad.
Bruce... the Good Lord just made you stupid, didn’t he?
Keep talkin Braley
I wouldn’t be woofing if I had a law degree. Someone needs to tell the a$$clown that most of the founding fathers had theological degrees.
As I recall George Washington was also a farmer with no college degree and Abraham Lincoln had little or no formal schooling, never went to college or law school and became a lawyer by “reading the law”.
Do you see the hog ad as positive or negative?
“Do you see the hog ad as positive or negative?”
I hope it’s a positive, but am not sure yet. The line about “cutting pork” is amusing. Hopefully, it’ll combine with Bruce Braley’s “Iowa farmer” gaffe and Sarah Palin’s endorsement to put her over the top.
So the best compliment Grassley ever got was apologized for??
