It's all a staged show...nothing more, and we are the paying audience...he will be confirmed by simple majority in the final scene of the "play"
Just barely though. I'm sure they will bring it up for a vote again soon. It's gonna be interesting to see how the John "Al Quds" Brennan nomination goes.
The more I see the more it looks like books are cooked to a predetermined outcome.
I know some are there for true Reform, but most end up corrupted seeking personal gain.
McCain is a big phoney and the Most AntiAmerican American Hero of all time. Tell me John, what answers could this Hagel possibly give that will endear him to you?
Hatch is no different from any other leftist scumbag. He has opted against standing against a Jew hating, anti American scum, who disgraces the Army with his continued existence, and was doubtlessly a piss poor NCO. He has, along with the other RINOs, thrown in with the likes of Reid and Grayson, but will swear up & down that he's better, than they are. Hatch is the same idiot that believes that Congress should be regulating college football.
And don't get me started on the detestable, despicable MURKOWSKI.
When we started to get congressman that ignored the Constitution, that was the first crop of congressmen to lack backbone, strength, and integrity. The people we see in Congress, now, are too weak to lead our nation. They have no courage, conviction, or character. This little show, is nothing. Republican Conservative statesmen of yesteryear would never have even tolerated a Hagel in their midst, much less have trouble impeaching his pathetic character. If the Republicans believe this little morality play makes them look tough resolute, and ready to lead the nation, they are sadly mistaken. Against a background of kowtowing to Obama, and literally giving away billions of dollars in high tech weaponry to our enemies, as well as confirming an American TRAITOR to the position of Secretary of State, the Republicans are a day late and a buck short. They need to be more like the Democrats; get rid of this 'big tent' bull crap, and ideologically clean house. As how long as the Republicans are stupid enough to keep believing in the 'big tent', all they'll get is clowns.
I couldn't disagree more regarding your take on Hagel's military history - the man served in the Infantry and earned two purple hearts. You keep flaming those that occupy the tent and you got no more tent and zero power and say.
National Taxpayers Union lifetime ratings:
Hatch ('92 - '11) - 72%
Lugar ('92 - '11) - 70%
And he represents UTAH.
What were you saying again?
Yeah. Real Conservative. Especially when he's trying to interfere in college sports, steal taxpayer money, violate the Constitutional rights of everyone in the nation, pass bills that violate our most basic laws, give free killing machines to Muslim scum, f- Israel over, pass fake 'violence against women' laws, not fight the RINOfication of the GOP (tacitly side with Rove) and pay off terrorists.
And that's just for starters.
Enjoy your little 'conservative'. Give me MIKE PENCE over RINO boy, anyday.
"It" doesn't concern me; I leave games to people like you. Reagan didn't win every election, either, but it doesn't change the fact that he was a CONSERVATIVE. Pence is Conservative. Hatch is not. You haven't addressed a single point against Hatch, which means you CAN'T.
Pence, LOL, do you remember who won the election? Win the executive and then you get to pick, that is how it works.
Is this another crack? Another General out. http://patdollard.com/2013/02/comrade-stalin-obama-purges-another-combat-general/
It proves that the standard for one of the highest offices in the land could be given to a total cretin and provided it was a Dumb (Dem) president's nominee they would vote for him.
What a disgrace they are!
Hatch, what's the point of a present vote? This present vote stuff is a cop out. We know you're present. Pick a side!
Any repub that votes in favor of this nominee needs to be sent home on the next round of elections.Are you listening Portman?
Most likely it will be the following:
Unfortunately there is nothing I can do to unseat any of those repubes except maybe give money to whomever might run against them,if they are a real conservative.Portman is already on my S list.He is my senator as much as I hate to admit it.
I understand why you wouldn't want Egypt but they did it not because Egypt is an enemy but because it is unstable.
Thank you for expressing that Senators don't only represent their own states anymore. I feel the same for the House. They need to represent all of us when they are on these committees and dig deep for answers.
So did many Republicans. Only 22 GOP Senators voted against it and many said they would have voted for it if it were written differently.
It's bad for American taxpayers.Senators don't only represent their own states anymore.He also voted to table Rand Paul's roll call vote for stopping the sale of F-16's and Abrams tanks to Egypt,which is the same as voting against it.So he is in favor of arming our enemies.
I did too,but recently he has voted on some issues that he should have stood against.Like the Violence Against Women Act for one.
