We have a Republican Majority in Congress? When did that happen?
Thanks for the compliment in the first line of your post. And I thoroughly agree that the House vote last night was a turning point for the Republicans. And that the debate supplied a basketful of quotes that can be hung around the necks of assorted Democrats.
However, you don't have to wait for my take on the same subject. I filed mine just before midnight, last night. LOL. Click below.
An added side benefit of any war powers would be the ability to start jailing obvious traitors and other seditious parties - no different from Lincoln, Wilson & FDR.
Sometimes I think it would be better to have a anti-terror Dem president to get the left on board rather than constantly deal with this slow-motion civil with which we are currently engaged.
Good one, LS.
Great first hack at the events of yesterday. I've been waiting all morning for somebody to do something more than swat at it. Lots of meat in your analysis and some great observations (no dem reads letters....).
Excellent analysis, professor.
Hahahah. Great, John. As Patton said, "I'd rather have a German division in front of me than a French division behind me!"
This is a little off topic, but for anyone who can influence the RNC, I'd love to see a commercial with Harry Reid admitting he didn't read the pre war intelligence report prepared by the CIA at the request of the Democrats.
According to Rockefeller, only six Senators and very few House members actually read the report.
So let's see if we have this straight. The left is complaining about pre war intelligence being manipulated but they didn't even read said intelligence reports?
Hello? RNC - get on the ball.
Capuano, Clay, Hinchey, McDermott, Nadler, Owens voted PRESENT.
Beauprez, Berman, Boswell, Boyd, Camp, Cunningham, Davis (AL), Flake, Fossella, Gallegly, Hall, Jindal, Kind, LaHood, Miller, Gary, Moran (KS), Northup, Paul, Peterson (PA), Shadegg, Towns, Young (AK) were NOT VOTING

Good write. You hit it on the head though. We still have a number of limp wristed Republican cowards will shoot themselves in the foot at the first chance at the first chance.
I missed most of the debate last night so not sure what you are referring to when mentioning Curt Weldon and Murtha. What did Curt Weldon say? I have been following the Able Danger scenario and at one time Weldon was my Congressman.
A brief review of his words would be appreciated......
All but three voted against the measure and a handful of real cowards voted "present" proving that their empty, pandering blathering was nothing more than that.
The dims will rue the day that they were led to spew their loathing for the military and the war effort and then forced to back up their lip-service to the moonbat fringe with a public voice vote, recorded for posterity and all to see and hear. The exact opposite that they intended.
Too bad, so sad.
New Democrat slogan:
Vote for me. I was tricked into voting for a war by a dumb, lying President.
Yeah, that should work
