    Tip Line Tuesday night

    Tip Line Tuesday night

    Forgive me for forsaking the Tip Line.

    It’s not that I don’t read it, I do. I just have neglected promoting items:

    BREAKING – we interrupt this Tip Line Tuesday Night to bring you a real what the …. , can someone explain this to the viewing audience:

    Those senators that voted for Hagel’s confirmation deserve more respect than those who voted for cloture and then against confirmation.

    Rand Paul bizarrely voted against cloture, but then FOR confirmation. I suspect he shares his father’s views on Israel, which are essentially the same as Hagel’s (and Obama’s).

    Once again, the Republicans meekly cave with no discernible practical or political benefit. What a surprise.

      It looks like I was wrong about Rand Paul. His explanation for his vote is “The President deserves some leeway…”. Really? What are we paying you for, then? The Bookworm Room sums up this fiasco pretty well in Chuck Hagel — a litmus test for Republican weakness and stupidity:

      Hagel is anti-Israel, even though Israel is our ally; pro-Iran, even though Iran is our enemy; hostile to the American armed forces, even though he’ll now be in charge of them; antisemitic, even though his baseless canards have their roots in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, rather than the real world; devious, as was shown by his prevaricating about his past and his refusal to release documents; and really, really, really stupid.

      I guess it’s that last factor — his rank stupidity — that proves that, all of his other qualities to the contrary, Hagel can still call himself a Republican. Dems have turned on Israel, look longingly at Iran, hate the military, have a festering antisemitism in their ranks, and routinely lie about and hide information that Americans should know. But when it comes to butt-numbing stupidity, Republicans win, hands down. I guess you could call Hagel the double threat, seeing as he has the worst qualities of both parties.

    Bill O’Reilly Talking Points Memo. How will history judge the Obama Presidency??

    Way I see it, whomever is made Secretary of State will be some Puppet Drone executing Obama’s foreign affairs directives and Obama would only pick some other idiot were Hagel rejected, therefore, the inept Hagel will fail miserably to execute Obama’s inept foreign policy. Hard to know who or what to root for.

    There is more than one Mideast Arab nation that would love to see Israel kick Iran’s ass. Hopefully for Israel, the US Cavalry will be available to them no later than January 2017.

    Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life:

    Rand Paul’s explanation was bizarre. He really said he voted for the nomination because “Republicans need to stick together”? I am leaving the Republican party to become a conservative independent, because of his explanation and vote.

    The Republican party is dying the death of 1,000 votes.
