Iowa garners an awful lot of attention as the first-in-the-nation caucus state for both parties and 2013 has been no exception. I suppose the only caveat is that politicians are spending a huge amount of time in the Hawkeye State for an election three years away and, in our world of instant gratification, things change in an instant.

Report from the Washington Post:

Blink and you might have missed the start of the 2016 presidential campaign in the first-in-the-nation caucus state.

It will ramp up in the next couple of days with several events featuring the likes of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), Rick Santorum, and Emily’s List, a group that works to elect women who support abortion rights, and has launched a campaign to elect a female president.

As we’ve written on this blog time and again, no politician goes to Iowa by accident. It just doesn’t happen. So as high-profile pols make the rounds in the Hawkeye State along the way to 2016, it’s worth tuning into who is going and how often they are stopping by.

Cruz and Santorum are both certainly running. Santorum ended up winning the Iowa caucuses in 2012 by literally 34 votes over Mitt Romney so what does he have to lose in trying again? Ted Cruz, on the other hand, seems to have the “heat” as of late on the Republican side. One can only ask whether Cruz could be peaking too early or can he use the current support to begin building a coalition and a long-term campaign.

I’m sure Hillary Clinton will schedule some Iowa visits soon but there certainly isn’t the depth of competition on the Democratic side as there will be among Republican ranks heading into primary season.

  1. Cruz was one of the 13 who voted not to give Egypt the billion dollars it got. He put America first so he doesn’t get scratched off my list like Rubio. Hillary is carrying the Benghazi baggage, scratch.

    • Are there no two honest men left in the US Congress and Senate — to start the NEEDED Impeachment Process of Obama, the creature that is hell bent on destroying our Constitution, our freedoms, our privacy, our prosperity, our way-of-life and our nation as a whole ?!

      Are all Congressmen and Senators so concerned for what’s best for them — to get reelected or run for some office — that NONE care to risk their positions to do what’s right to save our Nation from this Obamination?!

      Start calling them all — and ask them why they are complacent to this criminal act perpetrated against the American people!

      A sad day in today’s America — if no two honest people can be found in office!

      IMPEACH OBAMA NOW!

  2. The Klan doesn’t bother to wear its robes anymore. Lincoln asked, “Can a nation so divided last long?” I wonder. The hate mongers are drunk on the wine of satan, and are hell-bent for destruction. Self destrucvtion is the more effective one, nd this bunch is being effective.

  3. IMPEACH Barack Hussein Obama — it stumbles-and-bumbles AND STUTTERS (which is usual for this political creature to try and come up with an answer it is not prepared for) while trying to decide what it is: A DICTATOR or NOT….LOL!

    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST VIDEO THAT MAKES THE CASE FOR IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT !!!

    Time to IMPEACH — make this SUPERB 15 minute video viral.

    Also, nice exposure of Hitlery Clinton!

    If any of you here are true Americans, give this post a thumbs up.

    Thank you!

    p.s. Don’t worry about the NSA (Nazis Spying on Americans) profiling you, they’ve been spying on you illegally for years ALREADY, and the only way to stop them NOW is to have Obama IMPEACHED!

  4. Reasons to IMPEACH OBAMA — the abomination that has usurped OUR White House!

    Here are mine (if you can add to them, please, do):

    1) Lil’ Hussein PERJURED itself when taking the Oath of Office — to defend the US Constitution. It has done nothing else, but trying to DESTROY the US Constitution instead, since day one! And keeps on ticking in this zeal!

    2) Lil’ Hussein said it would veto NADA — if Congress wanted the power to whisk away any American citizen/s to secret military locations without DUE PROCESS and LEGAL REPRESENTATION only on the POSSIBLE (not verified) suspicion they may be connected to “some possible” terrorist activities.

    NOT ONLY DID Lil’ Hussein LIE, but SIGN IT INTO LAW — AND after a lawsuit was WON in a Federal Court by journalists that deemed it UNCONSTITUTIONAL, it — Lil’ Hussein — sicked its lawyers to have that Federal Judge’s ruling stayed! So, till this day — ANY AND ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS CAN DISAPPEAR, on mere suspicion (never to be heard of again) courtesy of Constitutional Breaker… Lil’ Hussein Barack Obama!

    3) Lil’ Hussein PLEDGED transparency in Government, and NO Spying on US Citizens — guess what, it LIED! Breaking a Verbal Contact — one’s word given to the American people — is the same as CHEATING UNDER OATH! And that’s all Lil’ Hussein DID, HAS AND KEEPS ON DOING!
    Now that PRISM and all the NSA Spying on ALL US Citizens has been exposed — what does it do? NOTHING, but lie again, and have its shills like Eric Holden and NSA’s anti-American General LIE on its behalf to cover its tracks!

    4) Lil’ Hussein: Can anyone tell us what is its real name: Barry Sotero, Slick MacCheat, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Destructor of USA — since no-one seems to know where it was born, and what is it exact REAL NAME. It had a FAKE Birth Certificate posted on line — and afterwards total secrecy!

    SHOW US YOUR REAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE — Lil’ Hussein — AFTER ALL, we all need to show ours to get a drivers license, let alone run for President….!!!!

    5) Lil’ Hussein — why are your scholastic records sealed in whatever University you claim to have attended (I have to disclose mine to get a job, WHAT MAKES YOU EXEMPT NOT TO DISCLOSE YOURS — what are you hiding from us… ashamed to show us your grades and the ACTUAL courses you’ve supposedly taken)?!

    6) Lil’ Hussein — if your were born in Hawaii, how come you have a Connecticut Social Security Number (when you’ve never been a resident there, ever)!?

    7) Lil’ Hussein — why won’t you disclose your Actual US Passport, showing where you were born, and you’ve been since acquiring one (I have to show mine every time I travel abroad, but you seem to be ABOVE THE LAW, and have never allowed anyone to show your world travels EVER — what are you hiding)!

    Time to IMPEACH this wannabe Dictator — Lil’ Hussein.

    If you agree, add your thumbs up to this post — if not, enjoy becoming a slave!!!
