Iowans know Joe. They know John Kerry too. After decades of campaigning in Iowa, caucusgoers have rejected the duo and their policies collectively in three separate elections – and they’re about to make it a fourth. As John Kerry takes the reigns in Iowa for Joe Biden’s “We Know Joe” tour, here’s what Iowans know this time around:
- John Kerry was at the table when the Obama/Biden Administration agreed to the disastrous Iran nuclear deal that put billions into the hands of the Iranians and put them on the path to nuclearization. Kerry went so far to admit that money exchanged during the deal would be used to fund terrorism against the United States.
- Instead of applauding the decision by the Trump Administration to take out another dangerous terrorist in Qassem Soleimani, Biden has made it clear that he would rather sit back and do nothing – just like he advised Obama to do with the strike against Osama Bin Laden.
- Joe Biden’s decision to revise history continues. During his trip to Iowa over the weekend, Biden denied both supporting the Iraq war in 2003, and advising Obama against the attack that killed Bin Laden.
- If Biden’s latest foreign policy opinions haven’t scared Iowans off, the thought of expanding Obamacare in order to give illegal immigrants free health care and social security or killing hundreds of thousands of blue-collar jobs in the name of climate change will.
Bottom line: After three presidential campaigns and decades of campaigning in Iowa, caucusgoers are all too familiar with Joe Biden and John Kerry – and they aren’t impressed. Just as they did in the decades before, Iowans look forward to adding 2020 to the Biden/Kerry presidential rejection list.
