MIDLAND CITY, Ala.-- A standoff in rural Alabama went into a second full day as police surrounded an underground bunker where authorities said a retired truck driver was holding a 5-year-old hostage he grabbed off a school bus after shooting the driver dead.

The gunman, identified by neighbors as Jimmy Lee Dykes, 65, was known around the neighborhood as a menacing figure who once beat a dog to death with a lead pipe, threatened to shoot children for setting foot on his property and patrolled his yard at night with a flashlight and a shotgun.

My bulldogs got loose and went over there," Patricia Smith said. "The children went to get them. He threatened to shoot them if they came back."

"He's very paranoid," her husband said. "He goes around in his yard at night with a flashlight and shotgun."

Another neighbor, Ronda Wilbur, said Dykes beat her 120-pound dog with a lead pipe for coming onto his side of the dirt road. The dog died a week later.

"He said his only regret was he didn't beat him to death all the way," Wilbur said. "If a man can kill a dog, and beat it with a lead pipe and brag about it, it's nothing until it's going to be people."

Given the lack of real political drama, the thing I'm most interested in seeing is whether Canadian-born chickenhawk Sen. Ted "Calgary" Cruz (R-TX) has the courage to once again question Hagel's patriotism to his face. As you might remember, over the weekend Cruz said Hagel was against the U.S. military despite the fact that Hagel is a decorated Vietnam veteran and that Cruz has never served a day of his life in the armed forces.
On what basis did Cruz make that statement?
Was that information included in your party line dupe indoctrination session?

You do know that we now have a person the entire world knows as a lying treasonous fraud as Secretary of State, right? So, anything is possible.

On what basis did Cruz make the judgement that Hagel was not an appropriate choice for Secretary of Defense?

I read, and reread the post, and I just can't find a reference to an election in it. Perhaps you have a problem reading and comprehending the written English language.
Here's the post again:
Obviously, someone using the authority of the president issued orders to the AC-130 and Force Recon units to ignore their default orders and hang the Americans in Benghazi out to dry while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill them on real-time video.
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment in Benghazi while the real time video was being watched in the White House, and orders came from the White House for the AC-130s and the Force Recon Marine units to ignore their default orders to respond to an attack on the embassy in Libya?
(Thus, who in the White House gave the order for the Americans to be hung out to dry in Libya while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real time video; and why did Obama lie for two weeks trying to cover up the Al Qaeda terrorist attack on the United States when the real time video of the 7-hour battle that was watched in the White House proved the Obama explanation an obvious lie?)
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
So far, nobody on Earth has answered these questions.

Or maybe just the next Robert Torricelli if he is lucky and can't implicate anybody else.
Nah. They blew Vincent Foster's head off because he and Hillary were conspiring to just let Bill Clinton continue to blow himself out of the water (by looking like an idiot, which caused the record setting disaster for the Democrats in the mid-term election of 1994 when the sitting Democrat Speaker of the House couldn't even win his own district... in a state like Washington, for pete's sake), let the Republicans take the '96 election, then Hillary and Foster would be the team to take control of the Democratic Party and put themselves in power in 2000.
Well, the Democrats didn't like that idea very much... obviously.
Lo, and behold, like hitting a switch, Hillary changes from a mouth louder than Rosie O'Donnel to the perfect church mouse-like First Lady overnight, exactly coincident with them blowing Vincent Foster's head off.

In other news on the health-care policy front, Whole Foods Market co-CEO John Mackey regrets his recent comments that compared ObamaCare to fascism. Mackey released a statement to clear up his take on the matter.
“I made a poor word choice to describe our health-care system, which I definitely regret. The term fascism today stirs up too much negative emotion with its horrific associations in the 20th century. While I'm speaking as someone who works hard to offer health-care benefits to more than 73,000 team members, who actually vote on their overall benefits packages, I am very concerned about the uninsured and those with preexisting conditions,” Mackey wrote.
He said the U.S. should take a lesson on health-care policy from Switzerland.
“I believe that, if the goal is universal health care, our country would be far better served by combining free enterprise capitalism with a strong governmental safety net for our poorest citizens and those with preexisting conditions, helping everyone to be able to buy insurance. This is what Switzerland does and I think we would be much better off copying that system than where we are currently headed in the United States.
“This alternative allows individuals and businesses to innovate and develop customized solutions to health care where a ‘one size fits all approach’ fails. Creativity and progress are stifled when government regulations dictate the parameters of what health-care plans can be offered. Creative businesses, and the people who work them, can make something that has value for all stakeholders,” he said in the statement.
The problem with all these interesting alternatives is that no one was introducing them as potential policy preferring more of the same including fat executive salaries/bonuses, fat sales commissions all while cherry picking customers.

Mackey, who's most loyal customers are left leaning treehugger types with the taste for $7 per lb free range chicken damaged his company's value with that stupid remark.

No, It's just trying to get an answer from anyone of the people here pretending to know everything about Obama and the Democrats, like you, for example.

That's what they're supposed to do, isn't it? Get answers? How many conservative reporters do you suppose Obama would have called on? And didn't the liberal press do the same thing to Bush but in much greater numbers?
Remember...Obama once tried to ban Fox from any press conferences. Much to the Cheerleaders' credit, they protested this censorship.
But Obama still would have done it had they not protested.
Don't you get what's going on?
There is a continuing and concerted effort still underway to silence the opposition - conservatives and news outlets such as Fox.
Is this really the kind of system you want? A one-party system with the corrupt media cheerleading for the most powerful without question or accountability?
Surely, you don't.
But that is exactly what is in the works as we speak.
oh yeah. only the libs blame everyone else.

how you folks can't see that the problem lies within is burgeoning mystery even for a lot of conservatives. i've posted numerous such wonderings on many occasions. Redstate. American Conservative. NRO. Weekly Standard. they all say the same.....quit worrying about the other guy and start worrying about us.

the attack dog strategy has failed spectacularly. change the game or disappear.

tricky framing!

but he's not a pedophile. and a right wing blog with an unnamed source will not start a Congressional hearing.

not to mention....the source won't talk to anyone but the right wing blog. always a good sign when you're looking for the 'truth'.
