Of course the Republicans will compromise . . . at the end of the day isn’t capitulation their real goal, and all the debate in the meantime is just a bone to the conservative voters who put them into office? We live under the illusion of a two-party system with this kabuki theater in Washington but at the end of the day the Dem and Repub parties are just one establishment party controlled by the ruling class.

You just got to laugh at the innovative ways the Rinos come up with to cave, LOL.
You know they're going to take the fall, but you never know if it'll be face first or falling on their a$$es.

So after every freaking rule is broken “via compromise” and no laws are enforced so long as the crime is worth over $1 billion, what the heck is left?

Oh yeah. Our country; headed there at head-turning speed.

One FReeper accused me of a “baseless slander” of the Republican Senate after I wondered which one(s) would turn at the offer of a juicy committee assignment or pork project.

“None will turn,” I was told...

I’ve been saying for years now, and I mean years, and years, and years we have to pull the chain, and flush the Congressional bowl. Keep pulling that chain until every bit of the self serving crap is cleared from the bowl, and start over with actual representation of the people.

Since the first time I ever wrote that online back at Lucianne.com many moons ago (I’d been saying it since Carter days) the TEA Party happened along, and now we have something, and someone in Sarah Palin, and some others for the hoped for leadership to get behind to push for what we want.

It still looks bleak, but we at least seem to have a direction to persue.

Hagel vote delayed, new outrageous statement alleged

Chuck Hagel’s nomination for now is in suspension. Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has conceded that he does not have 60 votes for cloture Friday. If he does not, he will likely delay Friday’s vote rather than lose on a cloture vote. (A loss on cloture would spur an onslaught of speculation regarding Hagel’s viability.)

I saw that post. Got a hearty chuckle out of that “None will turn” line.

I have never see such a gaggle of geldings as the repubs (puke) in the Senate. They would sooner slice their own limp wrists before daring to take a stand against Obama.

Like Clint Eastwood recently said, “If those people in D.C. don’t care, why should we??”

And they wonder why so much apathy exists among voters.

We definitely need another party, how it's going to kick off, I don't know, but we need it.
Probably should be tea party based somehow to hit the ground running.

Really needs to be a total flushing. Otherwise the ones left behind will all be committee chairs.

registered independent some 35 years. There may be individuals that deserve our allegiance and they may be in the republican party but they are too few for me to be loyal to the entire party.

“Really needs to be a total flushing. Otherwise the ones left behind will all be committee chairs.”

YES, that’s absolutely correct, and why I’ve always said the chain has to be pulled multiple times, meaning of course multiple elections, and back to back elections I might add to make certain we get every damned one of them out of office. It will take multiple pulls on that chain because they have different election dates, but get them ALL we must..

That’s not the definition of a “compromise.” That would be a classic case of a “cave.” But what would Dana Bash, AKA “Skeletor” know?

I don’t think the GOP has the votes to stop Hagel. McConnell won’t whip his troops. Their are enough squishy RINOs like Collins happy to go off the reservation to increase “bi-partisan” cred.

It really is night and day compared to how Reid runs things.
