The republican party is toast if they keep on caving in. What the hell is going on? I weep for the future of America.
Why do the GOP always do this?! Kerry doesn't deserve and should not have this position! The least the GOP can do is show their disapproval of this guy even if he would get it anyway. The dems never hesitate to ridicule republican picks and even vote them down! Stop giving Obama everything he wants just because he won! Your job is to represent US and be a check and balance on this guy. Our best interests, remember?! Stop going along to get along! Oh whatever! They don't listen to us anyway!
So I guess Rand Paul is ALL TALK??
WTF?? He gets all the credit for the tough questions and votes YES on Kerry??
This "to the winner, go the spoils" attitude of republican's suck, they are principled on the WRONG THINGS, they think because they allow a democrap president to have whom he wants, the democraps will do the same thing, but they never do.
Conservatives need to wash their hands of this party which is a stinking, rotten fly infested mess.
Lets face it…the Conservative’s agenda is no longer the GOP’s agenda. Their goals are no longer our goals, and that means that ultimately, we cannot count on them …… if we are going to ask someone to act as our agent in a hostage negotiation, we need to be confident that they want the hostage back just as much as we do.
Not one republican vote should have been Yea.... This man kerry placed our men and women of the Vietnam conflict/war in harms way and is 50% responsible for the treatment those coming home from Vietnam received..... This is a sick bunch of loons we have had in congress on the senate side and I mean 98% of them..... That also includes mccain....... All are a disgrace for this country!!
It becomes increasingly difficult to understand what happened to the so called Republican Party. I am thrilled with Cruz addition and trying at the moment to convince my wife that Texas has a whole lot to offer our family! Thank you for your vote Mr. Cruz. Let's wake the rest of the RINO's in the Senate and KICK them the HECK out!
How can we trust the Rubio's, the Toomey's and other's carrying the Conservative banner voting for a treasonous louse like Kerry. Don't they do their homework? Don't they understand his history and that it hasn't gone away. He's not a war hero, he's a Winter Soldier.
These are the same Senate Republicans who voted for the tax increase. These dunces have real credibility issues.
Alrightee then. With this vote, Marco Rubio has officially lost my interest in any capacity moving forward. This vote, along with his standing alongside McCain, Schumer, and the rest of those fools talking about so-called immigration reform... has sunk him in my eyes. I never will listen to anyone again tell me that Marco Rubio is a conservative. BS.
That's just one of the problems with American national politics....those ol' boys are in a club and according to club rules, they're going to vote "Yes" for the president's choice for Secretary of State. How else would someone like John "Scary'" Kerry get 94 "Yes" votes???? Everyone is just too chummy with those they supposedly oppose. "I can't vote against Kerry for SoS, he's really a great guy." Yeah, bull hockey!!! Kerry is not worthy of being SoS in my opinion, and I think more of the conservative senators should have voted "No," instead of following the established "club rules" and voting "Yes."
What I want to know is who made up these stupid club rules?! Where is it said that they have to vote yes on whoever the prez picks just because he won?! This good ole boy politics stuff is gonna sink this country! If the ex branch gets to do whatever it wants with no accountability from the other branches, including voting yes for dangerous nominees, what's the point of them being there!
The ENTRENTCHED club members make up the rules as they go along...kinda like my seven year old grandson does when we play games! In my opinion the Senate and the House are probably the best clubs to belong to in the entire world....lots of power, plenty of perks, nice pay. The members surely don't want to rock the boat and make changes that would limit or curtail all the benefits of being in the Senate or the House. They've got it made at the expense of the rest of us and the nation as a whole. That's my opinion of what's going on in DC.
Yeah, the one that was in Cambodia on Christmas Day (lie), the one that got a Purple heart for fragging himself, and the same one that led protests against his country, threw away his medals and called US Army soldiers of this Country murderers. Yeah, that one.
What a disgustingly slimey nasty piece of shit waste of good air! What in the world is happening to our country when this traitorous monochrome mental weakling is elected to be Secretary of State? Its just another sign of how far gone our country is... I cant stand this scumbag! Why wasnt he thrown out of congress, tarred and feathered? Shameful... How much of a joke we are to the rest of the world! When will this end?
Well neither was Teddy the Killer Kennedy. Goes to show and makes me wonder, with the exception of my dear friend Wolfie that I haven't seen in a few days, what the he!! is wrong with MA
But for 3 Republicans....there was no contest to Kerry's appointment. That makes the Repubs just as disgustingly slimey POS.
Obama and both parties are imploding this country.
For myself at least, I can think of no selection for SoS more pukeworthy than Kerry... except maybe Bill Ayers. At least he wasn't nominated for Defense. That would simply have been too much to bear.
Things just keep getting better and better... what happen to the America I've known my whole life? I am starting to not recognize it anymore, we use to stand up for our convictions, we didn't roll over, we had strength, we were proud to be Americans, we were not afraid to fight for what was right... now we are close to confirming a liar and a traitor to become our next "Secretary of State"? May God help us!!! How is confirming this man going to be good for our country? He could care less about ANYTHING other then John Kerry!!
It is time for all patriots to join together. That is all there is to it. Perhaps to move to Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, etc. and write a declaration of independence buy a small country off to admit us as a separate nation and build a consulate there.
Dear Commentators. After over 1100 'likes' it's time for me to move on. I have been spending too much time at my laptop, and I need to get back to my normal life.
I wish you all a good life, and will pray a special prayer for all of you and TRS. Keep up the good work. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your comments, learned a lot, got told off, and hope my contributions have been helpful. Take care, and God bless you all.
Please visit. We need patriots here. I want to remind you of this story if you haven't heard it:
One of the greatest Patriot Pastors was the Rev. John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg. In January, 1776 after preaching a message from Ecc. 3:1 “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven,” he stepped down from his pulpit and said, “In the language of the Holy Writ, there is a time for all things. There is a time to preach and a time to fight. And now is the time to fight.” He took off his black robe to reveal the uniform of a Colonial Army officer. He then enlisted 300 men from his congregation to join General George Washington. Their unit was called The Eighth Virginia Cavalry. Pastor Muhlenberg rose to the rank of Major General before the end of the war.
I was beginning to get addicted to all of you, and I do need to return to a normal life. Keep up the good work. The country really needs you. God bless and protect all of you.
Thank you. I wrote to you regarding a new tv series that will be on the History Channel starting March 3. A 10 partseries from Genesis to Revelation.

I'll try, but all of you are doing such a great job. Be good to each other. We're all friends, and mean well, don't we. God bless you.
Yes, I noticed when you started to send your good comments.With new commentators like you, TRS doesn't need me.
You're very kind. Let me take this opportunity to let you know about a new 10 part series for TV produced by the the show of 'Survivors' and 'Touched by an angel'. I just saw the announcement by the couple on James Robison. It will begin March 3 on the History Channel. You can see previews. I had tried to see the website they gave, but had to go to Google. I googled " History Channel Bible Series", and you can see the producers and get everything you need to know.
They will make DVDs to pass on to others as gifts. Each series will focus on a specific important event from Genesis to Revelations and promises to be exciting.
