Republicans are just the right wing of the Democrat party.

And Democrats are just communists by another name.

We should always refer to Democrats as Communists...there is no difference between the two...Republicans are Socialists/Fascists.

I sure miss “B-1 Bob” Dornan. He wasn’t a Volunteer, but when there was a topic that outraged him you’d see him railing against it late at night on the floor of Congress - usually with no audience aside from the C-Span camera.

We need a few dozen Bob Dornans.

Great Britain has the House of Lords. We have the Senate.

Same damn thing.

Anyone with principles would stay out of the cesspool that is Washington DC.

I wouldn’t go both out of a sense of principle as well as a purely selfish desire to be as far away from that place and those “people” as possible.

The Republican Party got rid of him early. Just as they do with all who wear the Republican mantel that revere their Country. Yet there are those, even here on this forum that depend upon the Republican Party to stem the tide of the Communists, a/k/a Democrat Party.

I think of the scene in “Patton” where they are at the Victory Party with the Russians, and a member of Patton’s delegation partakes in the Hors d’oeuvres being passed out by the Russians, and Patton just gives him the death stare.

That’s how I feel about the Republicans going to this shindig.

Tyrant Kim Un Hussein must be very pleased that his efforts to “FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” are progressing so easily.

This is ridiculous. Tennessee can elect two CONSERVATIVE senators, and instead we get two mushy moderates. Alexander was a fine governor, and Corker was a good mayor. They are not what we need at that level.

Corker is not a bad guy. I did business with him back when he owned his construction business in Chattavegas. As the GC, he would personally deliver checks to the subs, on time. This NEVER happens in the construction industry. He is a very good business person and light years ahead of most Senators on what it takes to operate a small business.

No question, I have not agreed with everything he has voted for. But he is not the problem...not even close to it. We need more like Corker not less.

Sen. Bob “Bought-and-Paid-For” Corker of Tennessee parties at the White Hut while Memphis-based Gibson Guitars twists in the wind at the hands of the Obama Administration—Nice.

Yeah he’s for small business except when he’s giving $700bn to keep Wall Street banks afloat.

Corker has sold out long ago my dear friend.

Corker is an enemy of liberty. During his first primary campaign for the Senate, his opinion regarding Kelo told us all we needed to know about him.

As for Haslam - it’s seems that it’s a good thing that the General Assembly is much more powerful than the Governor.

On a slightly related note, my iPhone autocorrects “Haslam” to “gas man”. I kid you not.

Corker is weak. Haslam is worse. And Lamar Alexander is the worst of the three.

You would think that a state that voted against Zero 59.41% to 39.04% and has a 2/3rds Republican majority in both houses of the legislature could do better than these three clowns.

I hope Steve Gill or some other Tea Party candidate enters the race against Alexander in 2014. I can’t bear another six years of that effete, mushy, reach-across-the-aisle disgrace.

The mushy TN Senators were all blessed by the GOP-Inc aka the Rovian wing. We really have no representation in DC.

Excellent analogy. Patton wouldn’t even make it to corporal in today’s military.

The concert featured Memphis R&B legends. I understand the controversy with the cancelled WH tours but it was appropriate for Tennessee politicians to be there. Flame away.

I didn’t vote for Porker, Haslam, nor LaModerate Alexander. All three are Liberal to the core and are no use to conservatism. Fiscal issues wise Bredesen would be a better senator then those three stooges. That is the sad state of the GOP in these times.
