Hmmm, McCain, where have I heard that name before.
Is that the stuff that plugs my toilet?
It’ll come to me.
I didn’t like her caving on the waterboarding issue- said ‘it never should have happened’- she could have just said nothing and still been confirmed- but she apparently wanted to let the world know that she also thought waterboarding was torture- handing the dems just what they wanted- The dems won on hte issue- they got waterboarding deemed to be ‘torture’- She just helped them win on that argument when she could have just not said anything after all the hearings-
Game over for confirmation.
Game on for operations.
Everybody step out of the line of fire for the Iranian mullahs - it is no longer a safe space.
>>>like a return to torture<<<
What is he talking about? You can’t return to somewhere you’ve never been.
said it never should have happened
I don’t believe she said that. She also refused to say it’s immoral.
This is a good example why I have no use for ideological labels. Lots of people get all excited by Rand Paul, who I generally like because he often puts forth good policies, but not because he’s a “conservative” or a “Tea Party Republican”. Then he pulls a stunt like this and the others and you wonder where his head is at and you can’t rely on him to do the right thing.
well unless i heard the news story on her tonight wrong- that is what i believe she said-
here’s an article on it:
Woo Hoo, Gina!
Were gonna need a lot more popcorn when she gets started!
Any speculation why Pelosi did not object to it or out this in 2002?
It doesn’t matter what she said because they wouldn’t vote for her anyway.
Breaking through the glass ceiling the right way.
She told them what they wanted to hear. The CIA uses whatever techniques they have to use to get information. That aint about to change.
my point wasn’t that she would get their votes- we all know that no matter what- they werren’t voting for her- I was just disappointed that she said that as it strengthened their false claim that waterboarding is torture- Now they get to say “Even a republican on trump’s team thinks it was torture”
She could have simply not said anything at all- and left it at her confirmation claims- You can’t give the left even an inch- they will exploit it every time- that is why i find it very puzzling that republicans constantly go on the enemie’s news sites- like CNN- ABC etc- because they almost always end up giving fodder to the enemy
John McCain should not be heeded one iota on this matter, simply because he is not capable of casting a vote either way on this issue of choosing or not choosing a CIA Director. McCain continues to hold on to his Senate seat, even though he is not capable of traveling to Washington, DC to cast his vote in person, as required by Senate rules of order.
McCain’s fatal “dying” condition literally leaves the citizen voters of Arizona without a functioning Senator. He should have graciously, with respect, for his voters resigned his Senate seat, voluntarily. He did not choose to do that. Not the greatest public servant in the least, IMHO.
Rand Paul now has a history of this play, and I call it play. When is the vote scheduled? Just hours before, he will come out and make some statement that last minutes changes to ‘something’ has now made it possible to vote in favor of whatever it is.
This little crap weasel is doing nothing more than ‘trying’ to collect chits to use later for his pet causes. In reality, I think he is now getting nothing because Trump will not play his stupid little game. Maybe Paul has some deep resentment from the primaries and is doing nothing more than to do a mini McNuts adolescent foot stomping. The problem for him is that nobody gives a crap.
Dems are extremely desperate to save their Senate seats so they will give up on opposing nomination to seem to be good guys when elections come around in November.
Manchin - could have been good. Heitkamp - coward - gone
Warner - wouldn’t trust him to take out a dead rat to the trash.
Don’t know anything about Donnelly but if he is a Democrat, he can’t be trusted with the security of our country. Out!
