Braley Caught Again Talking Down to Iowans

Braley Tells Florida Radio Program that He Has to Talk to Iowans “In Terms They Can Understand”

DES MOINES — Washington liberal Bruce Braley was caught once again talking down to Iowans, this time telling a liberal out of state radio program that during his town hall meetings, he is forced to talk to Iowans in “terms they can understand.”

Braley has a long history of talking down to Iowans and was recently at a fundraiser in Texas with a group of trial lawyers where he mocked Senator Grassley for not attending law school.

“Bruce Braley thinks he has to talk down to us Iowans so we can understand him. We understand him perfectly. He is a liberal elitist who thinks Iowans are helpless unless Washington tells us what to do,” said Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann.  “We know how wrong he is, and on Election Day, he’ll know too.”

In 2011, Braley Said He Responded To “An Impression That There Is An Elitism Among Progressive Policies” By Talking To Voters “In Terms They Can Understand.” BRALEY: “I think part of the problems that progressives have faced is, at times, there has been an impression that there is an elitism among progressive policies that wants to ignore the realities of what’s going on in places between the east coast and the west coast. And, look, I face this every time I do a town hall meeting.  I listen to the concerns of people. You know, from what you’ve done your entire life is that the biggest concern people have is that nobody is listening to them. And by engaging voters and talking about why you are a proud, progressive, populist and what that means in terms they can understand, that’s how you connect with voters and show them the false policies that are being offered to them and show them the policies that don’t lead to an economic boom for the middle class.” (“Papantonio: What A Strong Progressive Should Look Like,”Ring Of Fire Radio, 3/5/11)
