Today's Thought: Dave Loebsack was NOT given serious consideration for Harkin's seat

By Mike Thayer

I've mentioned this before but it's worth mentioning again, what does it say about Dave Loebsack if his own party doesn't consider him for a step up in government office?

For Republicans, it confirms the reality that Dave Loebsack is a party follower, an order taker, a 'yes' man for a liberal agenda as opposed to doing what's right and in Iowans' best interests.....  He's not a real leader, he's a puppet.

For Democrats, it means that party leadership doesn't have faith in Loebsack, that he doesn't have the ability to carry the torch as Harkin's replacement, that Loebsack would not be an effective Senator.

For Independents, it means that Dave Loebsack isn't the leader that Iowans deserve.

That's a sad statement any way you slice it.  Dave Loebsack is a loser in GOP eyes and nothing more than a water boy in Democrat eyes.

Iowa deserves better.

This is worth noting as 2014 nears and don't worry, I'll keep reminding people about this.
