Mel Martinez is my senator also. He is a constant and consistent disappointment. There were far more qualified and conservative candidates, but for some reason the Bush administration wanted Martinez. They are paying the price for that folly.

Daniel Webster would have been a better candidate. I HATED McCollum, one of the worst campaigners I have ever seen.

No surprise to hear Jean-François crowing. This was a craven and stupid move, even for Republican senators.

Thanks, however, to those in #25.

Have to agree about the campaigner part, but I would have voted for him rather than Martinez. Heck, I like Nelson better than I like Martinez, and I despise Nelson. Martinez is sleazy.

These Pubbies need to ask for a backbone for Christmas. When they become the minority party again, they will have no one to blame but themselves. Unbelievable.

And - regarding the "20,000 troops home over the holidays" campaign, I know for a fact that alot of troops are home or, have orders to come home.For example, the 250th Forward Support Battalion DISCOM (Rainbow Division) out of Somerset NJ has already begun to come home after being on active duty since April of last year. The last of them will be home before Christmas. But I guess they dont count.

Mel Martinez is my senator also.

Martinez is a disappointment to a lot of us. I was against him from the beginning because I thought it was fishy the way Bush inserted him in the race. The Bushbots went wild for him and ignored Bill McCullem who paid a high price for having the ethics to serve in the impeachment of Bill Clinton.

IMO, McCullem deserved the spot far more than Martinez for having the courage of his convictions to pursue the impeachment. I think he has paid a far higher price than Clinton ever will.

Martinez has not only turned against the president, he has become a major disappointment to his supporters. I don't think that the next election cycle will be quite as kind to the RINO!!!

It is called and Exit plan. The demos complain about no exit plan and now they condemn the formation an exit plan. Go figure.

Agreed. I hope the Florida GOP can find a real conservative to run against Martinez.

Seems to me all this whining from the left is simply proof that given the same intelligence information, they would retreat to the nearest corner and suck their thumbs.

Too afraid to defend our country under any circumstances.....without French approval first.

I posted on another thread that the dems are crowing that this is a victory for them....and you know what??

I am gonna agree....they can legitimately say that they drafted the amendment that calls for the Administration to "change courses"...because THEY don't like the way that Bush/Cheney/Rummy are doing it....

It doesn't matter that the "changed" version has Warner and Frist's names on it...it makes it WORSE...because they have the Majority leader's name and Warner's name on the bottom of a bill that the MINORITY drafted to tell the world that the Bush Administration has screwed up this war...

and that they want the troops home next year.

I hope you are right. I was new to the area and barely registered in time. I didn't know too much about the primary candidates. I did remember McCollum from impeachment and that was good enough for me. I voted for him in the primary. There was kind of shady business perpetrated by the Martinez campaign that I found absolutely repulsive. I voted for Martinez in the general election with a clothespin on my nose.

I just don't get support for Allen among conservatives. Sometimes he talks a good game, but given Clinton I distrust "talk" and look to action. I've kept an open mind about Allen and so far I see--

- Poll generated response on stem cells
- Appease by suggesting Talk to Cindy Sheehan
- Vote for McCain 'Protect a Terrorist Today' measure
- he might have voted for one of the cut the pork bills, but he didn't vote for both right?
- this PR disaster amendment keeping the administration's current operation intact but seuggesting deference to Polls in giving perception G.W.B. was slapped.

On measures he is good about I've seen no indication he's leading the fight. I'm far from Brownback's biggest fan, but no one can say he isn't out there on the Judiciary in front. Allen's in the midpack of support.

No Guts, No Glory. What I see from Allen so far is someone that watches polls and won't take a stand until public is vetted. That isn't a quality I want in my President. I want someone that will stand against the MSM and Dems AND McCain to do the right thing, and polls if he/she has to.

Sessions does that. I don't believe Sessions has any intention to run, but he's the mold of character I'm looking for in a candidate. That's why I had a tagline with Barbour for awhile as well as Honore. I'm looking for certain qualities thus far none have shown except maybe Guiliani and Romney to an extent, though they have their baggage with conservatives obviously.

I was just told that I forgot two Senators that voted NO on both amendments...so, please add Sen. Chambliss and Sen. Bunning on the list...

Also...I am getting to where I don't trust any of them...and I hate that...I am a little old to be finding this out. I have placed too much trust in the past, but no more.

I haven't found any reason to mistrust Sessions...but, he is human...so I am sure he does have some faults...LOL

My first instinct towards Guiliani is "NO WAY"..because of his social liberalness...BUT, I tell myself that he is great on the WOT...

and from most of the polls (that I don't put much stock in, but what are ya gonna do..LOL)...it shows that Guiliani is about the highest rated going head to head with Hillary.

Of course we want the BEST conservative candidate, but we also need someone who can WIN...so, we have a lot to consider in the next couple of years.

Now that the Republican proposal has been exploited by the Democrats to undermine support for the war and President Bush's leadership, are you still convinced it was a great idea?

LOL! You know bad enough you were citing Kristol to buttress your opinion(s), now you are citing John I voted for the war before I voted against it Kerry?.

Kerry is living in an alternate reality. We won. The Frist Warner proposal changes nothing in how the war is being conducted now or will be during the rest of the Bush's second term.

The Levin proposal lost 40 - 58 which means as many as 5 Democrats voted against or missed the roll call. Big time win for Reps. Enjoy it.
