Watch out for Senator Hagel joining the cabinet .... What a low standard...
Hagel should change his registration like Charlie Crist. And so should Colon Bowel. Some people I guess enjoy being the skunk at the picnic.
Yeah, but Hagel is supposed to be at Defense when Panetta bails.
Doesn’t matter to me, they’re all corrupt.
I am someone who, contrary to most opinion here at FR, is sympathetic to Boehner’s position. I heard Rush ripping him today for saying “tax increases alone” aren’t the solution. My read on the situation is that Boehner is looking at political reality...Obamugabe, the Kenyan Clown, is occupying the Oval Office. He won by running for tax increases.
Of course, the election ALSO kept the House in the hands of the GOP...and the GOP ran on spending cuts.
So Boehner seems willing to concede BOTH wishes of the electorate: allowing for more revenue/tax increase (by the way, closing the loopholes is what Romney proposed) BUT also insisting that spending be cut.
Anyway, I know I’m off base here....these thoughts should be in a different thread. I just don’t think of Boehner as the same as Hagel...that was my point.
