Thanks...

I was listening to Sean Hannity a minute ago...and he was talking about how Churchill was basically ignored, and treated badly by the English government...all of the years he was warning about Mein Kampf..and the danger of Hitler.

They didn't heed his message ..and he stayed an outsider, until the war he warned about, started.

I listened to Rick's speech yesterday...when he was warning about the danger of Islamofacism..and saying we need to call it by it's name....

And when Sean brought up Churchill...it made me think of Rick.


I think he should run in 2008...HE is the only one that was warning of the danger during his re-election campaign.

Surely we won't shove him aside, will we???

He's speaking from the heart

A very rare thing in DC

I'm VERY proud to call him my Senator

Okay..I have tears...

This should not be happening...when you have such weazels like Kennedy and Kerry that have been there forever...and accomplished nothing.

You and I have both lost exceptional senators. Instead, we have Casey and McCaskill. She has already had a "debt reduction" fundraiser with lobbyists.

There is movie/documentary called .. Churchill - The Wilderness Years 1929-1938

If you watch it .. you'll notice many similarities from then and now

Yes, Rick, there are some very good people in the senate, but there are some that are not so good.

The tears didn't fall until Mitch McConnell started telling Rick good bye...

UGH...that nasty Lincoln Chafee is in the big chair...

Well..Rick---there is an example of a NOT great Senator or friend.

I keep reading about all of these people...even foreigners that lament the resignation of Bolton...

Can he possibly even realize how much damage he could have caused??

I know most freepers don't think the UN is worthy of us getting upset about the Bolton thing...but, to me---he was one of the few, best PR moves that Pres. Bush has made because he DOES speak his mind..and he has the access to a microphone.

What is going to be next?? Are the WH press corps going to get together and complain that Tony isn't "respectful" enough..or doesn't give enough information...so they want him run out of town, too??

This is not a good time for us...for me...too many good people leaving Washington, IMHO>

Leaving or being shoved out...it's the patriots they want to get rid of.

I heard him for a few minutes...but turned him off.

I didn't hear anything different from him than I have heard for the last few years.

Okay..now that the dems have "won"...their new kick is to complain about what didn't happen when the GOP had control..

Nancy Pelosi called the GOP lead Congress "drive by legislating"...and a few of the floor speeches were complaints about what didn't get done.

Of course, no one on the GOP side have said that part of that is the obstruction tactics of the GOP....and I don't know whose idea of so much time off was...but, I do remember Harry Reid getting up on the Senate floor nagging Frist to do this or that, so his Senators could leave on Thursday.

I saw a clip of Conrad Burns giving his farewell speech...and his theme was "turn off the cameras in the Senate"...saying how much more camaraderie there is when the cameras aren't on...and how much better they worked..blab blah.

Well, surely that won't happen, because Harry and Nancy have promised us the most ethical, most open and transparent Congress in history.

Therefore, they need to put cameras in their offices, so we can see the wheeling and dealing that is ACTUALLY what makes for legislative work in Congress.

LOL. Wouldn't that be a treat. Of course, you wouldn't actually be able to see any of them as they would be surrounded by lobbyists.
