Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) to retire
Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/26/2013 11:31:19 AM

Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) has told the Associated Press that he will not seek reelection in 2014. “It’s just time to step aside,” Harkin, 73, told AP, noting that he would be 81 be the end of another term. Harkin’s decision makes him the third senator up for reelection this cycle to announce his retirement. Sens. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) have both announced they will not seek another term. Harkin is in his fifth term and has become one of the most outspoken liberals in the Senate in recent years. Over the past few weeks,

The end of his time can not come soon enough. The damage he and his other uber-liberals have caused our nation is staggering and may not be reparable. And in his waning months, he can help do even more!

Out-spoken liberal.

Part of the problem not part of the solution.
Allowed unconstitutional "recess" appointments to Obama.
Didn´t stand-up to demand Senate pass a budget in nearly 4 years which kept trillion dollar deficits to continue.

Liberals and Progressives are only about 20% of the population but are 80% of the elected Democrats in House and Senate.

They don´t really represent the average American views.
They want higher gasoline and electricty prices - do you?

Dishonest lying sack of all that is horrible. Lied about his military service long before Blumenthal, lied even more than Blumenthal. How on earth Iowa would elect and return him is beyond me. I can stand a lot but he has literally sickened me for years when I´ve seen his picture.

The reason why these folks are leaving is because they do not want to be around when the financial carnage hits in 2014 and beyond. Their legacy is debt and decay for a once great country. Good ridence! A job poorly done!

Enjoy the benefits you gave to your self at our expense!

#9 is correct. Stolen valor by Harkin, as follows- he ran for office claiming to be a fighter pilot in vietnam. He was not. He was a military pilot who ferried fighter jets from vietnam to japan for maintenance - a job in WWII done by women.
And when the truth came out that he never flew in combat (probably because of his lack of piloting skills) he admitted to his lie, and in spite of that, was reelected.
He is relentlessy leftist, and is largely responsible for the ethanol eating out your engines right now, and can be blamed for the increase in the price of beef. (40% in one year)
Good riddance to him. And shame on Iowa voters for electing and reelecting him.

This is the best news I have heard in well, forever. We are finally getting rid of one of the many old communists in the Senate. Maybe this will start a happy trend.

Hey Dianne, a happy retirement awaits you in looney San Fransisco. On us.
Just take our money and go the hell away.
And Frank, life would be grand living it up on our money on the Jersey shore.
I can think of many more who are so deserving of a nice taxpayer funded retirement.

At 73, Harkin needs a couple of million in lobby money to tie himself over in old age. His health care is covered 100% by taxpayers for life.

Glad to have Harkin leaving. Agree with #11, he is getting out before the financial collapse, as if we could forget he was one of the Demonrat architects of the coming economic disaster.

To those who say his replacement could not be worse - there can ALWAYS be worse.

The real benefit is that the replacement, no matter who it is or how good/bad, will be significantly more junior. That alone will minimize any possibly damage.

Agree with #19. In the end, there´s too much gimme, gimme, gimme, even among those who should know better. Gimme my social security freebie; gimme my tax credits; gimme my college loans...

But you can´t blame Harkin for ethanol. Every politician opposed ethanol until it´s time to run for President. If Iowa didn´t have an early caucus, we wouldn´t have heard of ethanol.

This man has never worked a day in his life and is retiring as a wealthy man. I live in the district where he began his career as a congressman...a district heavy with older people who he convinced would be deprived of their SS if a Republican were elected. He couldn´t care less about Iowa...from the day he moved to Washington he never intended to live another day here. He came back only for fund raisers and when he absolutely had to come for re-election purposes. Democrats are Democrats wherever they are from and our few cities are heavily union. Iowa Democrats will vote for their man no matter what so don´t lay this on all Iowans.

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

On upcoming trip, Obama

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision.

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

Martinez and the War on GOP Women

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.
