Cornyn asks president
to withdraw Hagel

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/21/2013 4:14:50 PM

Right Turn has learned that a third of Senate Republicans, led by Minority Whip John Cornyn (Tex.), have called on President Obama to withdraw Chuck Hagel’s nomination as defense secretary, citing “serious doubts about his basic competence to meet the substantial demands of the office.” Chuck Hagel Chuck Hagel (J. Scott Applewhite/AP) In a letter to the president with 14 GOP co-signers, Cornyn writes: While Senator Hagel’s erratic record and myriad conversions on key national security issues are troubling enough, his statements regarding Iran were disconcerting.

Hagle is no surprise to Senate Republicans..they shot off their mouths and indicated that they would vote FOR him, which meant comity was more important than America. Screw them.
I have had it with both parties. McCain can retire, Graham can just go away..I am ever so sick of his mealy mouth.
Cornyn wants to be on both sides of the fence..I could go on, but why bother..whatever the issue Republicans cannot stay true to the core beliefs of the party and their constituents.

I wish the aginners would get off John Cornyn´s back. I´m not at all sure what he has done to deserve their scorn. His approval rating among Republicans in Texas is 57-15, he won his 2008 race by 12 points. Who is your choice?

I will be first up to give Senator Cornyn applause IF he votes NO when the time comes. These fellows are feeling rather stupid now that they have said he´s unqualified but yes, they would support him. The bottom line is how they VOTE. All the rest of it, including this strongly-worded letter, is pure blather.

For starters, Cornyn supported Crist, Murkowski, Arlen Specter among other reach across the isle McCain types and voted to confirm known liars and traitors such as Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Sotamayor and Kagen.

Cornyn is also a big government tax and spend progressive statist who routinely votes for tax increases without demanding spending cuts.

Cornyn has declared war on the TEA Party and if it´s war he wants it´s war he will get! He is up for re-election in 2014 and he will be challenged by a TEA Party Conservative.

Lots of people including myself worked hard for Ted Cruz to defeat the Karl Rove RINO pick Dewhurst and we will double and triple our efforts to defeat Cornyn.

Chuck Hagel as a Secretary-of-Defense nominee is what happens when a political party -- the Democrats -- has become so weak on national defense that it can´t find a suitable Defense-Secretary nominee from its own party and therefore must scrape the bottom of the barrel of the opposition party.

Obama´s first Secretary of Defense was a hold-over from the previous Republican administration, Robert Gates -- even though Obama and his fellow Democrats had spent the previous eight years excoriating the Bush administration for its defense policy.

Obama´s second Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, had no defense-policy credentials but was merely a political hack.

Now, Obama has unearthed a creature from the bottom of the Washington lagoon, Chuck Hagel, trailing anti-Semitic baggage, who can barely conduct himself competently at a Senate hearing.

But, even though John McCain has declared he finds Chuck Hagel unqualified to be Secretary of Defense, he´s also declared that he will vote for him. So Chuck Hagel will soon be running the Pentagon.

Yes, I´ve read your complaints on several threads, #4, and I´m very curious to learn what name you believe is (1) an improvement on very conservative and honorable Senator Cornyn and why you think this person can win? Texans are very supportive of Cornyn and will vote for him again. Sometimes, it´s hard to find a person who suits everyone equally.

But whats even a bigger JOKE on America is Hagel. It is just like the Obama Leftists to support another (Kerry, Holder,Clinton, Geithner, Carney, Axelrod, Reid, Pelosi, Jarrett, Biden, Obama) traitor!!

Write Cornyn´s office, ask questions, and what do you get back from him? Thanks for contacting our office. We are doing yada yada yada for you and certainly appreciate your vote. Been there, done that, and he just continues to do what he has done. He and KBH are two of a kind....worthless RINOS When his office can answer a question asked in words which actually mean something, I will continue to feel he is what he is.

Cornyn must be up for election in ´14. He´s actually gotten off his chair and is doing something. #9 is right about writing Cornyn´s office. Finally, when I last wrote him I ended my note by asking him to stop killing trees. I have no interest in receiving form letters pulled out of a file by a subordinate.

Hagel is an idiotic anti Jewish lapdog who wlll follow Obama´s orders. I fear Brennan much more... Brennan´s a demonstrated soldier for Islam who gives Obama ideas on how to promote radical Islam & Sharia Law & has no qualms killing Americans to achieve his goals.

It is a long flight, but one Texas governor has a singular calling. Rick Perry has departed for the Republic of Palua, where many thousands of U.S. forces saw fierce fighting during the Pacific campaign of World War II on the islands of Peleliu and Angaur. Mr. Perry has joined up with the BentProp Project, an independent group that has indexed crash sites of 29 American aircraft - Corsairs, Avengers, B-24s and cargo planes. They now seek clues and possibly remains of some 80 U.S. Army Air Corps and Navy airmen who are still missing in action. “Somewhere in the waters of

What do Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Montana, South Dakota, and West Virginia have in common? For one, none has a city larger than 400,000 people. For another, they all voted for John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012. For yet another, they are the most likely places for Republicans to pick up Senate seats, thus taking control of the upper chamber, in 2014. These three facts are related. Much ink has been spilled about the “coalition of the ascendant” that the Democrats have formed, which essentially consists of young professionals, nonwhite voters, and gentry liberals.

A fault line discovered in the 90s is rattling nerves in Southern California, where millions have been living on shaky ground. The 25-mile Puente Hills thrust fault, which slices below Los Angeles neighborhoods, downtown skyscrapers, bridges and freeways, could cause catastrophic damage. A week ago today, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake on the fault broke water mains, cracked foundations, and triggered a rock slide. Experts say a 7.5 would be devastating -- and if the Big One struck, it could kill as many as 18,000 people and displace 750,000. That’s because much of Los Angeles’ infrastructure isn’t earthquake-proof. Bridges aren´t built to modern earthquake

The Unemployment Puzzle:
Where Have All the Workers Gone?
Wall Street Journal, by Glenn Hubbard    Original Article

A big puzzle looms over the U.S. economy: Friday´s jobs report tells us that the unemployment rate has fallen to 6.7% from a peak of 10% at the height of the Great Recession. But at the same time, only 63.2% of Americans 16 or older are participating in the labor force, which, while up a bit in March, is down substantially since 2000. As recently as the late 1990s, the U.S. was a nation in which employment, job creation and labor force participation went hand in hand. That is no longer the case. What´s going on?

At parties, Charlie Chaplin could usually be counted on to liven up the atmosphere. Determined to be the centre of attention, he’d mime the parts of a bull and matador or dance with invisible balloons. Then, using his skills as a mimic, he’d pretend to be one Hollywood leading lady after another — in the throes of love-making. Whether he’d slept with them all is open to doubt, but he was incorrigible in making advances to female film stars. He boasted frequently about his conquests, and eventually confessed to having had sexual relations with more than 2,000 women. What did they all

That pool was the most ornate of the nine oversized pools at The Phoenician, the over-the-top, 130-acre Arizona resort built by Charles H. Keating Jr., the soon-to-be disgraced financier who would become the face of the savings-and-loan crisis in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

A fortnight ago, as the federal government took to the courts to defend a rule that deliberately burdens the consciences of America’s more religiously devout entrepreneurs, the professional Left adopted the position that companies do not have consciences, griped that a harsh separation of the public and the private spheres was a recipe for the suffering of unpopular or put-upon individuals, and insisted that any links between the activities of an employee and the deeply held beliefs of his boss should be

He said it was ‘the right war.’ Then he did everything he could to screw it up. Despite the violence and uncertainty surrounding this Saturday’s election for a new Afghan President, there’s one positive —Hamid Karzai, the sitting president and the architect of much of the country’s unrest, is not on the ballot this time. But while Karzai must cede power under the rules of the Afghan constitution, the other leader whose mismanagement helped tank Afghanistan abandoned his influence in what he once called “the right war” a long time ago. That leader is President Barack Obama. An outright winner is unlikely

In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.
