These are the exact words that Boswell said according to WHO TV.

He said, "If he was tuned in to what's going on the hill, he'll know this is a business plan that they're been working on and a credit to them. And I appreciate being such a fine company they are.

If that is Boswell in his own words, then he has a problem speaking the english language. If it is WHO TV, then they have a problem speaking the english language.

Goodbye Boswell. You've been in and overpaid and over perk'd long enough. You go Brad. Time for some NEW CONSERVATIVE BLOOD...and I think (I HOPE) we're going to see this trend all across the country in a few weeks.

I can't believe Brad was even given the Rep. nomination. He never does any of his research on anything. "Common sense" "Common sense.." "I was the [f-in] mayor of urbandale" seriously if I was given a dime for every time I've heard him say that I would be a millionaire. Please do yourself a favor Iowa; I've already questioned the intelligence of Urbandale for voting him in the senate. Please don't make me question Iowa's.

Boswell, you're such a phony. The 85% rule in which insurers have to spend on benefits comes directly from Obamacare, which you voted for, and then sit and act as if Obamacare has no role in this? These layoffs are just the tip of the iceberg. Go ask any individual insurer.

You also voted to increase taxes via Cap & Trade. You voted for cash-for-clunkers. You voted for the stimulus. You voted pretty much for anything that would spend more of my money and the next generation's money. A vote for you is a vote for more of the same and we're long past affording your kind of legislating.

This from someone who thinks a single city is how we elect state senators. Please, stay in your moms basement this election.

I think Boswell's attack ad about Zaun lecturing on "personal responsibility" is on target. Boswell has Zaun in the cross-hairs on that one, and it makes Zaun looks like a real "cluck".

Zaun knows what it means to run a business and to struggle with finances. Don't fret about Boswell losing his job. His pension from Congress will pay him the same wage for the rest of his life. He doesn't deal with Social Security like the poor people. Pelosi's puppy.

Boswell is worthless, is so unreal, does nothing for Iowa, votes party line, and is in total lock step with Pelosi and Obama.
If that is what you want for Iowa then vote for the dead beat.

If you want someone who is real, knows what it is to run a business and work through difficult business decisions. Yea, Brad is only the Mayor of Urbandale, but what was Boswell before he lied his way into his congressional seat.

Excuse me, I have forgotten. All I have ever heard is that he was a helicopeter pilot in Nam. So that makes him so qualified.

Good thing Zaun made the statement that it "doesn't take a rocket scientist" because he certainly is not.
