that "fiscal responsibility" that the dems ran on...just went out the window

Well, we all knew they meant no such thing.

Lindsay Graham up asking if Hayden has met with the Attorney General of Afghanistan and some of his administration

Hayden say not yet, he has only met President Karazan

Lindsay says well you should because PresidentKarazan is corrupt and part of the problem

Now he's giving Hayden a hard time about Iraq and if the people of Iraq really want us there

Seems Lindsay is concerned about the Lawyers in Iraq being killed and how they need more protection

Asks why are we having a stupid deabte about more troops .. why are we stuck on a troop level that isn't working

Ooops .. my mistake

"and some of his administration " .. that was part of Hayden's comment of the people he has met .. not part of the question Graham asked

Sounds like Linseed was willing to get snarky with the mild mannered Hayden, but not so with the much more muscular Gen. Abazaid. The little putz.

Sessions is the only decent man there. I couldn't stand listening to Graham...walked away.

Abizaid is living this- Graham and the Gag of 14 are theorizing..

Kind of interesting. Byron Dorgan up trying to scuttle the agreement with India on nuclear issues. He thinks the Non-proliferation Treaty is working, I guess. He seems unaware that anything has changed since the Cold War.

I heard him for a while...I guess they just HAVE to get up a complain about every little thing...

Everytime I turned up the sound on the Senate yesterday..it was complain, complain, complain.

I am really sick of it...then I notice in the schedule that C-span set aside an HOUR, for Kennedy and Harkin to talk about the minumum wage!!! sheesh

RE: the minimum wage? Maybe it could go up a bit...but, all it does is reduce jobs...nasty little byproduct of raising it, eh?

Also...I have seen where quite a few states and cities have had minimum wage raises on their own ballots...so, I say...just turn it all over to the state...because, the minimum wage in Texas goes a LOT farther than the same amount in New York or California.

Therefore, small businesses in Texas or say Missouri don't have to lose employees by having to pay the same as those other states...JMO.

Absolutely. I just wish I could see some way to stop the federal government from meddling in all these areas where it has no business. Fat chance.

Whenever we get a candidate like Coburn elected..the old guard shun him...so unless we can get a LOT of them in at one time, that can override the ones that won't change their ways...we won't have a chance.

I watched the presser with Nancy...and her smiling the whole time full mouth gave ME a headache...sheesh.

The whole speech she gave was just so much spin...she was trying WAY too hard to cover up her embarrassment..

I loved the way she put Steny down by announcing that he won a stunning victory!! like how shocking..but here he is!

LOL

Oh good grief....Hillary was just up screeching about raising the minimum wage going up.

Has a group of ACORN people...I wonder if any of them will blame Hillary when their job is discontinued, because the boss has to pay more to the people ahead of them in seniority???

I guess the illegals will get this much too???

My first "job", I made 1.90 an hour, working at Safeway..and it was UNION...LOL

You know...there is something that just doesn't "feel" right about having Sweeney, the head of the AFL-CIO, giving a speech with Hillary, Kennedy, and Schumer standing behind him...

It always rubs me the wrong way when I hear speech after speech at DEM conventions, saying that the unions are their #1 concerns..

I have read a few articles since the "Dubai disaster"...that lead me to believe that it was more about saving union jobs...than outrage over who would hold the lease at the shipyards...

New York is a BIG union state...hmmmmmm

Yes...someone should have warned Kim...or maybe he should watch C-span sometime.

When I look at Ted Kennedy...I hear that old saying in my head..."the good die young"....

I have no idea how he is still walking around...I DO know that he reads his questions...but has no idea what they say...

Anyone going up against Teddy in a hearing needs to plan on asking HIM a question...or veering off the line Teddy starts....he won't have a clue what is going on...LOL

I think I see how terrible the next two years are going to be as we go through "oversight." Kennedy was implying that the JDpt doesn't care about all of those terrible civil rights violations going on out there during Pubbie administrations. More lawyers, more prosecutions, that's what we need.

She looked like she was straining to smile, and in typical Democrat fashion, trying to spin a loss as a win. Murtha looked like he was blubbering, and Hoyer was preening for the cameras.

Note: The caption below the photo is actually a CNN caption.
