Iowa gets Frist

"DES MOINES, Iowa (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senate Leader Bill Frist, a potential 2008 White House contender facing a federal probe of his stock sales, launched a sharp defense of his leadership during a weekend visit to the early caucus state of Iowa.

Frist asked Iowa Republican leaders and activists to "look at our track record" in the Senate on issues like trade, taxes and energy and said his Democratic opponents were practicing "tired old scare tactics."

"I hear you, I understand your concerns," Frist told the Iowa Republican Party's annual Ronald Reagan dinner on Saturday night. "Times are tough, but we're going to get through it.""

Now I ask you, does he really want people to look at his record? I think that would really be inviting danger. As for the "times or tough" routine, I think everyone's sick of that. People don't want excuses, they want action. The blame-it-on-Clinton thing is getting real old. The Republicans have nothing to show for the last five years but more Republican big-government, big-spending cronyism that has produced a weaker economy than we have had for years. The "let's sacrifice more for the Dear Leader" routine will go over about as well as it did in North Korea. As for foreign policy . . . don't even get me started!

I thought Fristing was illegal in most states?
