On a regular basis, WHO Radio personality Steve Deace, challenges his listeners to comb through his archives and find one thing that he has ever lied about. As a regular listener and former guest on his show, I don’t think Steve has ever lied, but I do think it is very interesting to compare what he’s said in the past to what he and his favored candidates are saying now.
He’s not always been very consistent from one election cycle to another. We all know that courts don’t make law, but it seems that, in Arkansas, the Court can raise taxes. That is something Deace didn’t have a problem with when he was backing Mike Huckabee. It’s also interesting to look at the conversation on immigration that went on during the caucuses in light of the present attacks by Vander Plaats against Branstad in the current race.
One could argue that biggest flip-flopper involved in this race isn’t a candidate. Perhaps these clips will show that everyone is capable of changing positions on issues and strengthening their stand, and that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are bad people, just different than they used to be.
We hope you enjoy this tongue-in-cheek look at Iowa politics.
