Treason wears two hats

Some Real Corkers

More Failure Theater from the GOP


Not every Senate Republican signed on to Sen. Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR)82%’s extraordinary letter to Iran’s leaders, and several of those who didn’t are fuming about the freshman senator’s Monday-morning foray into nuclear diplomacy.
Some of the seven dissenters told POLITICO they have doubts about Cotton’s move, saying there are more effective means to force President Barack Obama to address Congress’ concerns about the deal.
With Republicans needing significant Democratic support to achieve their goal of derailing the talks — or at least altering the emerging deal — some senators said Cotton’s effort could backfire by injecting excessive partisanship into the debate over how best to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran.
Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman  said he was approached to sign the letter by Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas, but he concluded it might set back his ultimate goal: veto-proof support for a bill he has sponsored requiring a congressional vote to approve or reject an Iran deal.
This is simply Failure Theater by a handful of GOP senators who are devoid of honor, courage, self-respect and respect for their fellow Americans. The fact that Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN)48% can even contemplate that the votes can be put together to override an Obama veto of a bill requiring Congressional oversight shows that Corker is either a complete moron (and this is by no means a wild flight of imagination) or that he thinks the Democrats would be happy to see America nuked by Iran because someone was all meany-pants to Barack Obama (again, based on what  ... [ More Failure Theater from the GOP cont]

This is just great.  While Corker and the McConnellettes were blathering on about the supposed apostasy of  Cottontail Republicans, guess what?

Forty-seven United States Senators did what desperately needed to be done.
They sent a letter to the hardline Islamic radicals who run Iran — and let’s not fool ourselves, the only difference between Iranian hardliners and Iranian moderates involves beard length — informing them that the deal they are about to cut with Obama is simply not going to be approved by the Senate. The White House went into internet-troll mode, which seems to be its default position these days.

Both of "our" senators from the great state of Tennessee are RINO POS's. I see no hope for the Republic as long as stupid people keep voting for "the lesser of two evils" and supporting the existing leaders(?) of the Republican party. THEY ARE NO BETTER THAN THE DEMOCRAPS!

Both of Washington State Senators, Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell are Democraps and fanatically loyal Ayatollah sycophants. At least they aren't fake Republicans like Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham.

What wildbill said. I'd like to apologize to the rest of the country for inflicting Lamar Alexander, Bob Corker and Al Gore on you.

(In truth, we tried to do the right thing re: Al Gore in 2000, but he is sleazier and slime-ier than we thought.

No need to feel badly, rickn8or. Texas has Ol' Cornie, who is pretty slimy, too.

Every day in every way, we make choices that aren't ideal. Politics is no different. There will never be an ideal candidate. Instead of taking up the popular refrain of 'there's no difference', just do the best you can. Encouraging people to ditch the republicans is why we have 0bama.
