Can’t remember where we heard of it, but one of our secret chuckles is to go visit the facebook and twitter pages of Cardboard Rod Blum. Ridicule is one of the best weapons against those who think they are high and mighty. Rod Blum has demonstrated throughout his tenure in Congress, that the only people he should answer to are his donors, not the voters of his district.
Let’s look at some of the posts that have been used to dog the disappearing congressman this election year:
Some twitter entries:
Is anyone really surprised that @RepRodBlum isn’t planning to meet with the @DMRegister editorial staff? It is typical for #RunAwayRod to shun his constituents but now he is also running from the media. #RetireRodBlum
Cardboard Rod Blum Retweeted OutFrontCNN
“At the most recent debate, @RepRodBlum slipped in through the back.” Blum also declined an interview with @CNN. And it has been 517 days since his last public townhall in #IA01. Hiding from constituents is Rod Blum’s favorite game. He’s wrong for Iowa. #VoteHimOut #RunawayRod
.@RepRodBlum still doesn’t get it — metal detectors in schools is NOT the answer to eradicating gun violence in schools. He’s dangerously wrong on this and he needs to be called out on it. We need universal background checks, a policy supported by the majority of Iowans. #IA01
I have been looking for Congressman Rod Blum for the last 512 days and haven’t been able to find him. But we know where to find him tonight. 7 pm @ Gallagher Bluedorn Center on the UNI campus. Tune in on @KWWL to watch #Abby4Iowa show us what real leadership looks like. #RetireRodBlum
Does Congressman Rod Blum think the voters of #IA01 aren’t paying attention as he votes to plunge the country deeper and deeper into debt? Blum’s tax cuts will put Social Security and Medicare at risk for America’s seniors. Time to #RetireRodBlum https://www.desmoinesregister.com/…/editorial-b…/1489613002/
This is just one of the many reasons why Congressman Rod Blum is going to be retired in November. “Voters say 2-to-1 the tax law benefits rich over middle class.” https://www.bloomberg.com/…/internal-gop-poll-we-ve-lost-th…
Take a visit and read some of the adventures of Cardboard Rod Blum.
Meanwhile, Abby Finkenauer is battling hard so she can really represent the people of Iowa-01 the way they should be represented.
