    Republican super-committee members – Any weak links?

    Republican super-committee members – Any weak links?

    Yesterday Harry Reid appointed John Kerry, Patty Murray and Max Baucus.

    Today Republicans appointed:

    Speaker John A. Boehner chose three senior Republican House memebrs: Jeb Hensarling of Texas, and Dave Camp and Fred Upton, both from Michigan.

    Mr. Hensarling, who is chairman of the House Republican Conference, will be co-chairman of the new panel, along with Senator Patty Murray, Democrat of Washington.

    The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, chose Senators Jon Kyl of Arizona, Rob Portman of Ohio and Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania for the 12-member panel.

    Remember, it only takes one.  Who is our weak link?

    I thought McConnell would put several RINOs on the panel & that didn’t happen at all. Kyl & Toomey are very very conservative & Portman ran as a Tea Partier in ’10 with a solid record. Upton is the closest to a RINO & he still has an ACU rating in the 70s. I thought it was going to be a lot lot worse than this.

    I don’t think it matters much, because no one on this committee is going to stray beyond what Boehner and McConnell are prepared to countenance.

    Well Upton’s definitely the weak link, from NRO’s The Corner:

    The whole god damn bunch is a disappointment, as are [almost] all of congress. Who cares? We can fix this situation in November, 2012.
