LOL. At his press conference on Friday, Sensenbrenner said that some people are saying that he [Sensenbrenner] will eat the Senate negotiators alive and pick his teeth with their bones. Hagel sounds like he is the first victim.
They believe in the saying there is no smoke without fire so the more the they say it the more the mud sticks and more the sheeple beleive it.
First, let me assure that Gen Hayden was NOT brought onto the national intelligence scene by Bill Clinton. What a crock! Gen Hayden has been, dig this, an intelligence officer since the Vietnam war!!!! It's kinda hard for a dope-smoking-but-not-inhaling, fleeing-the-country-to-avoid-the-draft-and-his-national-gaurd-obligations nobody to bring anyone into the national security arena!
BTW, I worked for Gen Hayden at one point. A very intelligent man with vision. While he got his star under the earliest days of the Clinton admin, he really got this rank (BGen) due to an appointment/assignment to an O-8 billet by President George HW Bush.
###### Reporting from - ? - A NYTimes reporter who died 5 months ago, writes this week in NYTimes the obituary of Lloyd Bentsen .
LOLOL! Paper of record, indeed!
I think that is similar to how it works in Britain. I seem to remember a case where the child could have remained but the parents had to go. Of course the child went with them as they did not want to leave her behind.
They were elected to their job .. not have the House to do it for them
If they didn't like the Bill they should have voted it down
Was this from you or on TV? It's a great point to keep in mind. The last thing the US needs to do is create an underclass of workers as has happened in European countries.
Great analysis. I think I will copy and paste and send it to some people I know who can't think for themselves. OK?
I won second place last week. Wow. I am so honored.
Right now I am watching Dick Turbin talking out of both sides of his mouth.
Tim's assessment of what Hagel is saying: "Do you mean the Republicans are fed up with the Bush White House?" He salivated as he said this.
Re: FBI Raid of Jefferson's office:
Sensenbrenner: The Constitution has given congress immunity from certain transactions. Court has said no corrupt member of Congress can hide behind the Debate clause. The FBI was able to convince corrupt Congress people without this kind of raid.
The Executive branch has immunity as well. It'snot right for the police to raid the WH and rummage through documents and then return what they don't need.
This debate isn't over. Whether Jefferson is guilty of a criminal defense, he can't use the constitution as a shield. It's about the congress being able to do its job.
The Justice Dept. denied that Hastert is under investigation. One of your competing news channels (ABC) republished the fact t hat the DOJ was investigating Hastert. There was a second denial. News media have a justifiable cynicism but after the denials, it makes us cynical about what the news media does. Fortunately, that's not you, Tim.
Hagel: We all need to reaffirm that no individual is above the law. But some of the things Sensenbrenner brought out are important. I don't know the facts so I'm out of my depth. (Why would today be any different). The documents are sealed and we can work our way through this.
Atmospherics are at work here. We need to work it through.
Russert: Are Republicans upset with the Bush WH?
Hagel: The NSA using new technology to monitor and inventory calls. There are bigger issues than just this and the environment...
Russert: Is there anger among Republicans with the Bush WH?
Hagel: Frustration. Sure there is.
Russert: You said the president should engage directly with Iran.
Hagel: I said that. You can't get to the central issues and core of problems without that direct engagement.
And now Durbin, instead of capitalizing on Frist's nonesense, hangs a Black Congressman out to dry. If Congressman William Jefferson, D-LA was white they would circle the wagon trains.
It was directly from whoever's name was directly above the transcription - sounds like Sensenbrenner but I'd have to go back and look at that.
This is the first and primary goal of liberals worldwide. They need an perpetual underclass to retain power.
I'd rather have all our problems than what's going on in the Democrat party, as their whackos from the far left are dictating to their party.
I agree wholeheartedly....I was simply quoting Sessions, because your point was Sessions point....the senators who voted for the bill, even though they didn't really support it, should NOT be relying on the house to rescue them. Those senators showed no backbone, unlike Sessions, who has been a real leader on the issues.
Tony Orlando is an upstanding citizen who takes his civic pride seriously and believes in standing up for what is right.
He told many fascinating stories of his life's adventures and the interesting people he knew. He is, as I said earlier...a genuinely wonderful man.
I look forward to finding out what he has to say.
Thank goodness Frist is getting out when his term is up. He's been a huge disappointment.
