2 Senate Opponents Vow
To End Bid to Block Hagel

New York Times, by Ravi Somaiya

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/17/2013 11:01:30 PM

Two of the most outspoken Republican critics of Chuck Hagel’s nomination as secretary of defense indicated Sunday that they would no longer hold up his Senate confirmation. Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, said on Fox News Sunday that he would stand aside because Mr. Hagel had disavowed comments that he was said to have made (Snip) “I don’t believe he is qualified,” Mr. McCain said. “But I don’t believe that we should hold up his nomination any further because I think it’s a reasonable amount of time to have questions answered.”

Comments:
Graham & McCain are definitely two RINOS that need to be put out to pasture by the Tea Party. This is why we are heading for WWIII with the current crop of 0bama appointees to his cabinet and tepid GOP challenges.

If you don´t believe he is qualified, you vote no.

This is why the Repubs are toast. There is no point in supporting them.

Thankfully, sanity is making a comeback. The GOP is back and open for business! Gramnesty and McAmnesty are unlikely saviors of a party gone right of Rove, but we will take what we can get. Onward, out of the desert. Next step, destroy gun grabbing, amnesty, and carbon taxes. Then, make a deal with Dear Leader, Nobel peas prize upon him, regarding sequester. Get that pipeline built!

Why does passage of time while you are waiting for your questions to be answered affect the qualifications of the candidate? IMHO, if he won´t answer questions from Congress before he starts the job, he certainly won´t answer questions after he has it.

Graham and McCain...two camera lovers who are about as close as you can get to despicable. Seriously...try to imagine either of them proceeding in a political career without speaking in front of cameras. Two lightweight jerks.

I´m disgusted. If they don´t think he´s qualified, then vote "no".

If he´s really terribly awfully bad, then hold up the nomination until you get enough information to make everyone agree with you, even the dems with noses in shadow.

We don´t know the answer to John McCain´s question to David Gregory today on ´´Meet the Press´´: ´´Don´t you care that four Americans died´´ at Benghazi?

But we DO know now that John McCain himself does NOT care what happens to other Americans like the four who died at Benghazi, because he´s preparing to vote into the office of Secretary of Defense a man whom he himself states he believes is UNQUALIFIED to hold that office, thereby placing everyone in the American military in danger.

How would John McCain have liked to serve under unqualified officers when he was in the military? ´´Despicable´´ is too good a word for John McCain.

Once again the progressives-in-republican wrapping have performed their political two-step slide dance, as demonstrated by Charles Durning in "The Best Little Horehouse in Texas." They make some conservative noises so that the GOPer cheerleaders can lambast patriots with the "Republicans are conservative enough" canard, but then drop their charade in the name of comity when it actually comes to doing something meaningful.

And, once again, we are expected to support this carp. Not me, not any more. It seems our nation has as many enemies within the "Stupid Party" as the Dims have in theirs.

What good will it do to "take over the Senate" in 2014 if alls we´ll get will be Rove Republicans? If this is the best the GOP can do, they can go the way of the Whigs. I can hardly wait for the usual suspects to post how misguided and prey to Dim propaganda anyone is who actually believes in the Constitution and has the termity to complain.

Hagel has a lot of questionable attributes but no home run hitter to completely shut him down.The Obama thug machine is jam packed with arm twisters that don´t play by any rules.

Obama and his cohorts have convinced over half the country that Israel is no longer a valid ally,so whatever Hagel said about them,does no damage.

Every time a republican challenges an Obama plan or appointee,they are subject to being smeared by the lackeys at the Slimes and other rag outlets.

Just read the article about police officers in Atlanta being arrested for their criminal activities using their badges and patrol cars to help the bad guys. This article seems very similar. Besides lamenting the condition of the country, we should think about why we´re in this shape. America the beautiful; God shed His grace on thee. Does anyone remember Him?

So if I understand it, stonewall and all objections to your confirmation will disappear. Yeah, that seems about right to unprincipled drones whose only consideration is their political power. It is men like these who have brought us to the brink. McCain and Graham represent everything that is wrong in Washington. They have been there way too long and have no core principles. We know the no matter what they say, they will eventually cave to the ruling class. It is who they are.

I heard Graham´s remarks. He said he asked Hagel whether he said something Graham considered a deal breaker. Graham said that Haagel didn´t remember saying it and said he was sure he would not haave said such a thing. Graham said, basically, he would take Hagel´s word, (as a gentleman) and would, therefore, have to vote for him.
Is he a RINO or is he a principled man who is trying to play by the rules?

Sorry not to join the hanging party.

@22, we here in SC have been working to replace Miss Lindsey since the midst of his first term. The problem is not that more conservative candidates cannot be found. The problem is our corrupt open primary system, wherein Ds can declare themselves R For A Day and vote the slimy little toad back in.

And by the way, Lindsey´s official opinion of himself is that he was elected to vote the way HE sees fit... not the way WE want. Told me that hisself.

Stars of the GOP Kabuki theater. They get their mugs on TV to express "reasonable" concerns to placate conservatives. Then the deadline approaches: we have a crisis. Then the Senate "gang" to the rescue. Finally the intended "cave" as the fat lady sings. (Are there fat ladies in Kabuki?) How many times must we wee this? How many times must we put up with this? Go away. Just go away.

I´ve had it with RINOs. I changed my registration to independent because of the Grahams and the McCains in the Senate and the House. Each time I receive a letter asking for RNC national, state or local $ I toss in the garbage can. From now on I only will support the legislators who stick to their principles and have the courage to say no to bad selections or laws.
I´ve written to RNC and it falls on deaf ears.I seriously believe they have not read letters because there wasn´t any form of money in it. The RNC and its cohort in the senate and house will not recognize me and I no longer recognize them.

Please forgive the second post, but to answer #41: Yes, this action is to bring the nomination to a vote, but as we saw with the Kerry SOS confirmation only a few "Republicans" will vote no. You can count on McPain and Graham to vote yes.

So, having staked out so-called principled positions on this issue, Senator Graham from Bend-Over, South Carolina, and John McCain, the nincompope, have decided to withdraw their objections to a self-evidently unqualified candidate?

It was important to Obama to ensure that a REPUBLICAN cuts defense. Finding a Republican idiot was just icing on the cake. Here´s the play: Make the Senate Republicans question Hagel and thereby force them to demonstrate just how stupid a Senate Republican is. Then rely on McCain and Graham to prove it by voting to allow a Republican they have deemed unqualified into office, making them look simultaneously unprincipled, obstructive, and double dutch stupid.

What a crew! What a coup! How much more are we all supposed to take? Are there any GOP politicians left who actually understand politics and know how to win?

It´s lousy Republican / Tea Party candidates like Akin, O´Donnell, Mourdock , Raese , Berg , Allen , Rehberg and Buck, who cost us the Senate.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

GM to seek court protection

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
