Hatch is pretty close to being 100% right on this.

Although he should be a lot tougher on Rockefeller.

The good old Senate believes in taking care of each other.
The Republicans will can one of their own and support the enemy. This should also be counted as Political Treason.
I just think the Republicans are cowards.

FGS. No guts, no glory. Shame on Orrin Hatch, and the other GOP toads. Do they not read their e-mail? Do they not receive their messages?

"I happen to love Zell Miller"

"I like Sen. Rockefeller very much but, I mean, that wouldn't be right,"

No, it wouldn't be right. I say make up your mind and commit to the one who really has your heart Senator. You can't keep such sweet and innocent fellow Senators on tenterhooks now can you? Just do the right thing.

Sounds like the Republicans are going to be breaking out the "comfy chair and soft cushions" pretty soon...

What a wimp. I wonder if he apologizes to his wife for getting out of bed in the morning. As they say, "Never count your Hatch before he chickens."

But the Utah Republican defended the committee's ranking Democrat, Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-WV, saying he shouldn't have to resign as the committee's vice chairman even if he's found have authorized staffers to prepare the bombshell document.

Asked about Sen. Miller's comment on Wednesday that the memo was "treason's first cousin" and that "heads should roll" over the episode, Sen. Hatch told radio host Sean Hannity, "I happen to love Zell Miller and I do agree with that because bad intelligence results in the deaths of Democrats and Republicans - in other words, our people."

But Hatch refused to call for disciplinary action against ranking Democrat Rockefeller...

I think the reason Zell never became a Republican is because they are so wishy washy when it come to standing up and doing what is right, if it means getting tough with a democrat.

Sen. Rockefeller Risks 'Serious Criticism' for Memogate

Oh no! Not serious criticism! That's only one step short of the ultimate weapon: the "sternly worded official note".

ROTFLMAO! Hatch is f'in moron and a spineless turd. Why do the people of Utah keep electing him to the Senate? Oh, right, the same reason the people of Massachusetts keep electing Ted Kennedy...and the people of Pennsylvania keep electing Arlen Specter...and the people of West Virginia keep electing Robert Byrd. Should I keep going? /rhetorical

Asked what would happen if it turned out that Rockefeller was implicated in the memo scandal, Hatch replied, "Well, it's a serious issue. I mean, it would be, you know - he would be seriously criticized if that were the case."

Ooooohhhhh, Orrin, you're such a studly guy - fighting the good fight to the bitter end.

So, how's that "limited government" thingie you Republicrats promised coming along? You know, all the freedom that'd be restored once Republicrats were in charge of, say, the White House, Senate and House?

How's all that doing, Orrin?

We're waiting . . . . . . .

Don't count your Hatch before he chickens!

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Ut., said Thursday that Sen. Zell Miller, D-Ga, was right to charge this week that a memo outlining plans by Senate Intelligence Committee Democrats to politicize Iraq war intelligence borders on "treason."

But the Utah Republican defended the committee's ranking Democrat, Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-WV, saying he shouldn't have to resign as the committee's vice chairman even if he's found have authorized staffers to prepare the bombshell document.

Asked about Sen. Miller's comment on Wednesday that the memo was "treason's first cousin" and that "heads should roll" over the episode, Sen. Hatch told radio host Sean Hannity, "I happen to love Zell Miller and I do agree with that because bad intelligence results in the deaths of Democrats and Republicans - in other words, our people."

But Hatch refused to call for disciplinary action against ranking Democrat Rockefeller, recommending instead that Republicans "publicly ask the Democrats how they reconcile [preparing such a memo] with the critical need for non-partisanship."

When Hannity said that his sources had identified Rockefeller as being responsible for the memo, Sen. Hatch turned defensive.

Noting that the West Virginia Democrat "has worked pretty well with [Committee Chairman] Pat Roberts," the Utah Republican said, "I really doubt that Sen. Rockefeller would have anything to do with trying to make [the Committee's investigation] that partisan."

Asked what would happen if it turned out that Rockefeller was implicated in the memo scandal, Hatch replied, "Well, it's a serious issue. I mean, it would be, you know - he would be seriously criticized if that were the case."

"I like Sen. Rockefeller very much but, I mean, that wouldn't be right," he added.

Despite the national security breach, Hatch said it would be unwise for the White House to stop cooperating with committee Democrats, saying he feared that the press wouldn't permit it.

"The can't [stop cooperating] because the major media in this country . . . is always on [the Democrats'] side and they don't ever get called to account," he complained. "If [Republicans] did something like that it would be front page headlines all over the country. You know that."

I don't think I can contain my loathing for this perfumed Prince - Senator Hatch.

Please explain to me how we can be attacked, be at war and our 'leaders' still try and pretend that while our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines are in harms way life in the US Senate should remain as it always has been.

I say give Hatch a rifle and make him walk down Baghdad streets for a couple of months. I'll gladly go with him. Then we will see how he feels about treasonous acts by Senators in the country he is defending.

Orrin Hatch is so bloody worthless. They've got Ted Kennedy and nine other bozos screaming that Bush is a liar and all Hatch can come up with is "serious criticism."

GAWD...THE GOP IS SO LAME!

Hatch appears to be the ultimate good ole' boy. Won't ever say anything harsh about a fellow SENATOR!

Can you just imagine what this would be like if it were the GOP with the memo? They would be all over the airwaves calling for an independent investigation and for Roberts resignation. Hatch is totally spineless. No wonder I don't give any money to the NRSCC.
