With "up to" 22% of the nation's voters being right wing freaks such as yourself and 10% being left wing treehugging PETA types__surely you can see that keeping peace among the remaining two thirds takes some fancy footwork. Thankfully I've got a terrific support network both here and in my official muckety muck role.
You loony left wingers sure are wound tight today.

If Cruz Acts Like an Ideological Demagogue, and Talks Like One…

The editors at National Review defend Ted Cruz’s dishonest and demagogic performance at the Hagel confirmation hearing:

Indeed, Cruz spent most of his allotted time at Hagel’s confirmation hearing establishing this fact by rehearsing for Hagel his own past statements and insinuations to this effect, all on the record, from the floor of the United States Senate to the broadcasts of Al Jazeera. Cruz was not here working on innuendo or guilt by association [bold mine-DL].

The NR editorial simply asserts that Cruz didn’t do all of the things he did at the hearing. Cruz misrepresented Hagel’s statements on at least two occasions during the hearing. Put bluntly, he lied about what Hagel had said, and then demanded that Hagel account for the distorted version of his words that Cruz had presented. The most obvious of these was when Cruz took a phrase out from Hagel’s 2006 speech calling for a cease-fire in Lebanon and presented it as a one-sided condemnation of Israeli conduct alone. He certainly engaged in baseless innuendo at the later committee meeting, when he speculated without a shred of evidence that Hagel might be taking money from hostile and authoritarian regimes. As for guilt by association, there is no other way to describe his bizarre attempt to hold Hagel responsible for Chas Freeman’s views. Cruz was behaving like a demagogue, and he was unscrupulous in his use of evidence to score cheap ideological points.

No place else to go for the money.
Of Course, Galt, the dumbass, didn't mention that the IRA tax free contributions would be capped for those making over $250,000 a year.
Galt & the right love tax loop holes & breaks for the wealthy.

Hagel and Repudiating the Bush Era

It’s probably too strong to say that there is a “closing of the door on the Bush era” taking place right now, but Marshall is right that the fight over Hagel centers on Republican hard-liners’ continuing attachment to Bush-era foreign policy and the rejection of much of Bush’s legacy by everyone else. The odds are that you think Hagel is an uncontroversial or good selection if you understand that Bush-era foreign policy was a disaster. Cabinet nominees shouldn’t be selected solely because they represent repudiations of failed policies, but it is a welcome additional bonus.

Because in loony left winger world you don't own your mistakes, you blame them on bush.

"We apologize to Mr. Rove. While we may have strong disagreements with Mr. Rove on the future of conservatism, we want to be clear this imagery is absolutely unacceptable and are working to ensure this type of mistake doesn’t happen again,"

Unfortunatly thats how govt. in the USA works and it is trickle down stupidity , if you are a private contractor and sub work from say Northrop Grumman ship bldg. off a govt. contract you include the price of every tool to be used , when the job is over the tools no matter the time used or condition after completion of the job are supposed to be destroyed never to be used again , and thats just one example , its too easy to spend money that you did not earn and unfortunatly our govt. has no concience when it comes to theivery of the tax payer .
