Yes, Sen. Harkin, It’s a Civil War!
September 27, 2013 – Iowa Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin, in a speech about raising the debt ceiling, said, “We are at one of the most dangerous points in our history right now. Every bit as dangerous as the break-up of the Union before the Civil War.”
On this point, he is absolutely right! But it is Harkin and his ilk, led by President Obama, who are tearing apart the Republic.

But just before his defeat he was a guest on liberal Lawrence O’Donnell’s TV talk show and the interview—a cage match, really—was as revealing about Weiner’s lusts as were the sexting pictures he sent to random bimbos.
