chet have one week
chet have one week. chet need to convince iowa that chet not stupid. he need to convince iowa some things so they vote for chet. here the list:
so all chet really have to do is to convince democrats these things and he win next week. oh he forgot one thing:
that state legislators not know anything about governing. state legislators not endorse chet. they all go for someone else. but they not know anything about government or about the people running for governor.
governor vilsack not know anything about governing. he not officially against chet, but he definately not for chet. not pay attention to that. what he know about government or chet?
that chet not have to pay attention to state constitution. chet not pay attention and screw up amendment to iowa constitution. this article explain. it not like constitution important.
that chet not need to go to meetings (patty not need go either). chet miss almost ever meeting of the executive officers of iowa. chet not care and neither should you. chet not add anything to meetings anyway.
that chet not need money from iowans. chet not need support from grass roots. chet have DC roots instead. chet grow up there. his family there. DC roots pay bills better, and not expect good government in return. chet get more money from DC area than sitting congressman.
that truth not matter. even democrats in the legislature call chet a liar. but chet not care. honesty not important. it what people believe that important. chet learn that from karl rove. fibbing ok if it makes problems go away.
that it ok to ignore state ombudsman. chet put iowans private information on the internet for anyone to get. ombudsman tell him to fix it, but chet ignore. chet ignore for six months.
that yepsen not know anything about iowa politics: "The rap on Culver is that he's not bright enough to be governor, and there was little in his performance to ease Democratic concerns he's just not ready to go toe-to-toe with the Republican candidate, Jim Nussle."
that it ok to have someone on campaign team who milked state for millions in department of transportation land deal. it under investigation. "The expo spurned the interest of two other bidders and accepted $15,072 an acre from Knapp and Elwell in 1999 without an appraisal and without advertising the sale. Knapp and Elwell later resold a portion of the property to the state for $130,000 an acre...
Many of the questions, Vaudt said, center on the cozy relationships among Knapp, Elwell, the expo and the Iowa Department of Transportation, and whether those ties led to decisions that cheated taxpayers."
that nussle, independents, and republicans won't care about these things or anything else that chet forget to list. maybe this most important thing to remember. they just let sleeping dog lie.
