The last thing they want is to piss off their constituents.<quoted text>
Perhaps Chicago should pass an ordinance requiring all gangbangers to surrender their illegal weapons.
That would solve the problem.

No offense Helena.

Wow Carol, now you're saying that there was no war on Jews in Germany?
1000 pieces of legislation brought forth by your party against womens rights
The middle class is dwindling because of the Bush tax cuts
Institutional racism from hiring to lending to housing to education and judicial system is well documented
You are totally off your rocker, I didn't think you could become worse than you are but today, you hit the jackpot.

The Petty, Spiteful Critics of Hagel
Liberal supporters of Hagel can speak for themselves, but I haven’t seen any pro-Hagel arguments that concede that he is a mediocrity or that he would be a “potentially lousy” Secretary of Defense. Hagel appears to be well-qualified for the job, which is what matters most. It is also the one thing that his attackers have consistently avoiding discussing at any length. Hagel’s competence isn’t the issue, and most of his critics have never even bothered making a case against his competence. The bulk of the campaign against him has been ideological enforcement and character assassination.
That the selection offends and annoys people whose foreign policy recommendations have been so disastrous for the country is an additional piece of confirmation that Hagel was the better choice.
P.S. There isn’t any need to “punish” Republican hawks with individual Cabinet nominations. That’s silly. Their party has lost the last three of four elections, which is why they aren’t in a position to install one of their own at the Pentagon. Throwing a fit over Hagel’s nomination is one of the most obvious cases of sour grapes in recent years.

I can't believe she's gone that far over the cliff. No war against the Jews in Germany?
No war against women? middle class? minorities?
#835482 Jan 8, 2013
Probably better than New York, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, etc.
#835483 Jan 8, 2013
Hi Homer, 5 mins, working for a dictator? Carol now says there was no war against the Jews in Germany,
no war against women here
or middle class
Time to go.

Speaking of poor systems, socialist Democrat. Do you recall when Spain was having it's election and it looked like a conservative was winning, then the terrorists hit and the sicialist liberal won?
Guess what. The unemployment rate there is 26.6%. Must be Bush's fault, eh libtard?
Would you like to hear about another far left place like the kind you Democrats like. Ever hear of Greece with all of it's social programs & unions?
If you think Alabama is bad, just come to a blue state like Connecticut if you want to see a broken edication system where blacks are forced into inferior schools (no vouchers, thatnks to you people on the left).
I'm sure the people in Alabama can't wait until you leave either! The people down there are nice and respectful and care about their neighbors. You certainly don't fit in lib.

9 of the bottom 10 ranked states for education are red states:
Far Below Average
42 Oklahoma 2.01
43 Nebraska 1.97
44 Nevada 1.93
45 Arizona 1.91
46 New Mexico 1.72
47 Alabama 1.60
48 Louisiana 1.59
49 West Virginia 1.58
50 Mississippi 1.11
A splash of color my ass. The big picture shows a correlation between a bad education and coming from a red state. The question is which caused the other

Best not to ask GOP fundraising legend Georgette Mosbacher about the state of her beloved party unless you want an earful. The co-chair of the RNC’s Finance Committee (and CEO of Borghese cosmetics), Mosbacher is “mad as hell” about the myriad ways the “brand has been tarnished”: the sorry state of the presidential primary process, the ongoing alienation of Latino voters, the “outrageous” Senate candidates that the party ran this cycle, the epic failure of the fiscal-cliff negotiations, and, most recently, the House’s dithering over disaster aid for the victims of superstorm Sandy.
“I’m angry!” fumes Mosbacher.“I’m angry about the stupid mistakes that were self-inflicted.” It’s this last part she finds the most enraging. Though she believes the party has “unfairly” been defined by its recent mistakes, she is very clear about where the ultimate blame lies:“We did it to ourselves.”
Mosbacher is, of course, not alone in her ire. Postelection, you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a hastily assembled group of Republican leaders laboring to figure out where the party went wrong last cycle and how to get it back on track. So far, however, Mosbacher is unimpressed by their efforts.
“I have not seen an honest postmortem assessment yet,” she told me.“I have not seen anything that gives me any comfort right now.”
This is an unfortunate development for the GOP, because, as Mosbacher explained it to me this weekend:“I’m not writing any checks, and I’m not asking anyone else to write any checks until I hear something that makes sense to me.”
The root problem, as she sees it: the sorry state of the party’s leadership in Washington.
.....“There’s one thing they understand,” she says with the confidence of a woman who has played at the highest level of the game for many years.“They understand money. Politics is about money. Make no mistake. They’re going to have to listen.”
And not merely listen. Mosbacher warns,“They may listen and not act. But that will be risky.”

Asked and answered, even by yourself, nitwit!!
Has to do with Article 1 Section 7 of the US Constitution.
It's something you obviously haven't read, even as you complain about others not understanding the Constitution.
You're really dumb.
Now back to Cassius Clay.
What boxing website did you find that got you so fired up and in attack mode??
After I finish making you look stupid on that subject, we'll move n to your idiocy concerning Adam Smith.
You're in for a tough time, Dweeb.

Just 8% Now Say They Are Tea Party Members
Views of the Tea Party movement are at their lowest point ever, with voters for the first time evenly divided when asked to match the views of the average Tea Party member against those of the average member of Congress. Only eight percent (8%) now say they are members of the Tea Party, down from a high of 24% in April 2010 just after passage of the national health care law.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 30% of Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party. Half (49%) of voters have an unfavorable view of the movement. Twenty-one percent (21%) are undecided.
predicted by who? every liberal in the country.

Carol is crazy.
Seems the election has made her crazier, if that's even possible.
She doesn't like to be reminded of what an economic bottom feeder she actually is.
If BillyO didn't stick his tounge in her ears every night, she might not be so much the idiot.
One thing's for certain. Hubby is that in name only for Carol. Her late nighters are ample proof of that.
She comes here for social contacts, which she doesn't get at home.

good news for Root Canals, Nickelback, Donald Trump!
Poll: Congress Less Popular Than Root Canals, Nickelback, Donald Trump
On the heels of an historically unpopular Congress, Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling found a sardonic way to illustrate just how low the public thinks of the governing body in a survey released Tuesday.
Among several items and individuals tested, the automated poll found that American voters have a higher opinion of root canals, Canadian rock band Nickelback, head lice, colonoscopies, Mongol conqueror Genghis Khan, France, real estate mogul Donald Trump and cockroaches than they do of Congress.
On the other hand, Congress, which registered a paltry favorability rating of 9 percent in the survey, is still more popular than telemarketers, ebola, North Korea, troubled actress Lindsey Lohan, communism, meth labs and disgraced former politician John Edwards.
