NASHVILLE U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today spoke at the Nashville Rotary Club. The following are excerpts from his remarks:
"The President has asked Congress to authorize a limited military strike in Syria.
"I will vote no' because of too much uncertainty about what comes next. After step A, what will be steps B, C, D and E? I see too much risk that the strike will do more harm than good by setting off a chain of consequences that could involve American fighting men and women in another long-term Middle East conflict. There should be other ways, more appropriate to America's vital national security interests, to discourage and show our disgust with the Syrian government's apparent use of chemical weapons on its own people."

Lamar! is getting LUGARED!!
They fear war with Russia! Putin is owning OBuggery. More to come.
Sorry Lamar, the job of “The Hindmost” is already taken by someone else.
Alexander beginning the predictable, classic 6 year metamorphisis from Establishment GOP super squish to staunch Tea Party candidate.
Got that right! But, Nathan, PLEASE - its Lamar!
Too little too late Lamar ya RINO Bitch.
Hey, dummy! You might at least also mention that Obama wants to fight the war on the wrong side, just like he did the last couple of times.
Lamar is finished regardless of whether or not he supports the itinerate negro who occupies the White Hut.
What Lamar meant to say was, “I will vote no’ because of too much uncertainty in the upcoming election.”
Sorry, Lamar. This isn’t working. Time to pull out the old red flannel shirt to see if you can get suckers to vote for you again.
'Most all the time, the whole year round, there ain't no flies on me.
But jest 'fore Christmas I'm as good as I kin be!
.... an empty plaid shirt.
Contemplation of a losing primary wonderfully concentrates a politician’s mind, just as contemplation of an imminent hanging concentrates an ordinary person’s mind.
He’s just another GOP-e phoney.
Glad he is being primaried. Maybe he will do the right thing...even if it is for the wrong reason
