Like We Didn’t See This Coming


Harry Reid says Senate Republicans have enough votes to filibuster the Chuck Hagel nomination. Way to go Harry.

    More exeptionalism for the brown president. Well, on the GOP’s pointy heads be it.

    I can’t tell if they hate the traitor Hagel that much, or if they’re just desperate to manufacture something on Benghazi with which to gum up Obama’s second term.

    I do know that I’d like to put Lindsey Graham and John McCain in a room with security cameras and let loose some mice. What a YouTube video that would be.

    If the Obama administration won’t make South Carolina pay for the actions of its Senator, Lindsay Graham and representatives, they deserve to fail.

    Sam — what do you propose the Obama Administration do?

    Benghazi serves a dual pupose:-
    -Gum-up Obama’s second term.
    -Prevent Hillary Clinton from getting her first.

    That’s the only long-term thinking that they’re capable of doing at this point.

    Alas, when it comes to Benghazi, there is no stained navy-blue dress– unless we count the frocks hidden in Lindsey’s closet. I don’t think this long game is gonna work for them.

    Make the next nominee a full-blooded Democrat.

    And the one after that.

    And the one after that…

    In the mean time, Obama can send anyone he pleases to represent the nation, since the Republicans will not do their job.

    Yeah, I know…McCain and Graham are just having some good old boy fun pulling on Hagel’s chain. Rubbin’ his nose in a little Israel love just so he knows who calling the shots.

    “Pulling on Hagel’s chain.” I thought Lindsay was the one with a chain (and leather and latex)

    The second 9 of his 9-9-9 was the only 9 worthy of consideration.
