Tuesday, August 12, 2008 Jim Leach endorses Obama

"It's been a very difficult thing for me because I've never endorsed a Democrat before...but sometimes in life you come to a juncture where it's very clear the national interest trumps party discipline," former Iowa Congressman Jim Leach said in a noontime interview with Radio Iowa.

*snip"

Leach Former Iowa Congressman Jim Leach -- a Republican -- endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama this morning. Leach, as you may recall, lost his bid for re-election in 2006 after three decades representing portions of eastern Iowa in congress. Leach was considered a "moderate" Republican and was a backer of campaign finance reform. Leach did not accept campaign contributions from political action committees.

Another liberal pubbie. Let's just have a mass Overlord Obama Congressional Cave-in ceremony.

National Endowment for the Humanities??

Let’s hope he uses his position to shut it down.

I can get you odds that Jim Leach was ever a Republican. Oh, he had the R after his name but this girly man never embraced conservative philosophy.

Republican my a$$. a true republican could never approve of a program for an endowment for humanities much less support a liberal, socialist, hater of America for president.

This is actually very beneficial, as it drains our party of all these losers.

National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities - Two (of many) unconstitutional agencies that need to be shut down.

Our nation gets nothing from them but ugly statues in front of federal buildings. They DO keep the unemployable employed and untalented artists in their Greenwich Village lofts, but I don't believe that is a good use for my money.

Well he tried nominating Democrats to posts and they all had tax issues. Maybe he’s picking Republicans because they pay their taxes?

Beltway Bill Bennet once headed this agency (IIRC) and still speaks well of it.

Why fight the democrats when you can lick their boots and get a pat on the head?

Kind of an interesting coincidence the name Leach. A true RINO Groin Leach.
