“Greenfield was asked if she knew the price of corn. She not only answered correctly, but also worked in some observations about what those numbers mean to struggling farmers.
Yet when Ernst was asked the price of soybeans, she first ducked the question, speaking for more than a minute on trade issues. Then, when asked again about the price of soybeans, she fumbled and got it wrong.”
It’s why Greenfield will be the next senator from Iowa.
She doesn’t have to fake concern for the struggling farmers, she knows what the prices are and how it hurts the average farmer.
It reminded me of 92. The first (I believe ever) town hall debate.
Bush was asked to name the price of a gallon of milk, a Dr visit, and a pair of jeans.
Bush gave a long winded answer about he understands people are suffering.
Bill Clinton named the prices
Her bonafides are that she grew up on a farm and knows the famers of Iowa like the back of her hand. This was a colossal screw-up on her part. And I love it because she is another complicit traitor that deserves to go down in flames.
I appricate that it may be hard. She could have sucked “its been a long time and I should know it better” which would be bad, but not as bad as her answer
Mod “No -Soybeans”
her “I think corn is $5.”
Mod “I said Soybeans”
Her “My oponent didnt answer”
Mod “She was asked about corn and she got it right. Soybeans are $10”
her “I dont think Corn is $10”
(BTW - THe other canidate gave the accurate price for corn and Ernst, who was asked about Soybeans, tried to then answer Corn…and STILL got it wrong!)
