Well, by your definition, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan and Scott Walker are not patriots and have no respect for the military. I already knew that.
According to you Scott Walker would be over qualified, he worked for the Red Cross.

"The need for change is obvious," Reid, of Nevada, said in remarks on the Senate floor. He said that in the nation's history, there have been 168 filibusters against presidential appointees. "Half of them have occurred during the Obama administration -- during the last four and a half years," he added.

What else would you expect when Marxist communists ally with the Islamists in the White House and are trying to end the existence of the constitutional republic.
They either fight it out in Congress, or slaughter millions of Americans in a civil war out here.

Of course Americans will elect some people who oppose Marxist communism and Al Qaeda, dumbass.

The Democrats are engaged in a conspiracy to have total domination over the country without any dissent from anything not part of the ruling elite class. Their view of the future is identical to feudalism, with elite nobles ruling over peasant serfs bound to the land. The RINOs are part of that conspiracy.
There, I said it.... conspiracy... conspiracy... conspiracy.
It should be obvious to everyone.
Of course they are. It's why I literally grieved for 3 days after Obama won in 2008.

It wasn't him. It was who elected him. I didn't know my fellow Americans anymore. Very sad day for me.

The Tea Party movement eventually brought out the fight in me and finding this forum to vent helped too.

Just wish that movement had not become political.

On filibuster, Senate voting to restore wisdom of the Founders
As I outlined in the comments section of a post on the filibuster Wednesday, the Founding Fathers were very clear about their opposition to requiring a supermajority before a legislative body can take action, which is what the filibuster does. In drafting the Constitution, they limited such a supermajority requirement to only a handful of very specific cases, such as the ratification of a treaty or the removal of a president or other elected federal officer.
One of the primary drafters of the Constitution, Alexander Hamilton explained that decision in Federalist Papers #75:
“... all provisions which require more than the majority of any body to its resolutions, have a direct tendency to embarrass the operations of the government, and an indirect one to subject the sense of the majority to that of the minority… And the history of every political establishment in which this principle has prevailed, is a history of impotence, perplexity, and disorder.”
I don't think there is any question that in recent years, the growing use and abuse of the filibuster has produced the very "impotence, perplexity and disorder" that Hamilton warned against. The difference is that too many of today's politicians see "impotence, perplexity and disorder" not as problems to be avoided but as goals to be pursued. The filibuster had become a powerful weapon in their hands.
James Madison, known as "the Father of the Constitution", also addressed the issue head on in Federalist Papers #58:
“It has been said that more than a majority ought to have been required for a quorum; and in particular cases, if not in all, more than a majority of a quorum for a decision....
In all cases where justice or the general good might require new laws to be passed, or active measures to be pursued, the fundamental principle of free government would be reversed. It would be no longer the majority that would rule: the power would be transferred to the minority. Were the defensive privilege limited to particular cases, an interested minority might take advantage of it to screen themselves from equitable sacrifices to the general weal, or, in particular emergencies, to extort unreasonable indulgences.”
Again, Madison's prescience is impressive, because that is precisely what abuse of the filibuster has produced. It has allowed an interested minority to screen themselves from equitable sacrifices to the common good, and to attempt to extort "unreasonable indulgences" from the majority.
The filibuster is an extra-constitutional contrivance adopted long after Hamilton, Madison and their colleagues left the scene. Once used rarely, in recent years it has become a standard obstacle to almost any action of significance. The change being voted on today in the Senate abolishes the filibuster only when considering presidential nominations to Cabinet jobs and other executive branch positions, and to judicial nominations other than to the Supreme Court.
It ought to be abolished altogether. Wipe it off the books.

As I see it, Putin took advantage of yet another opportuniy to make Obama look like an ignorant fool on the world's stage. Ultimately, Putin maneuvered Obama into a position where Obama has to help ensure the stability of the Assad governmen to even be recognized and participate in he discussion of the WMD issue.
This puts Obama in the position of being on both sides of the conflict. Automatically, the United States loses all credibility and influence. We become the clown in the room.
Assad needs support from Russia. He does what Putin wants him to do.
Putin is a real world leader. Obama is a shill and fraud. Those controlling Obama are rank amateurs. Putin is slapping them around in front of the entire world without breaking a sweat.
Obama has removed the United States from the influence structure of the world.
You should've heard what a Secret Service agent had to say about Obama when he walked away after 18 years and three presidents.

He even wrote a book. According to Dan Bongino, Obama is surrounded by just what you said - rank amateurs - and acts like he's in a play but doesn't know he's even an actor and just has to remember he's always the hero in the play no matter what.

Pretty frikkin' scary.

Does Raw Video of NPR Expose Reveal Questionable Editing & Tactics?

3. How does Schiller describe Republicans?

Schiller’s negative comments about Republicans and conservatives have gotten a great deal of attention.

He clearly says some offensive things, while being very direct that he is giving his own opinion and not that of NPR. Still — a wildly stupid move!

But you may be surprised to learn, that in the raw video, Schiller also speaks positively about the GOP. He expresses pride in his own Republican heritage and his belief in fiscal conservatism.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2011/03/10/do...

....if you are of the opinion, as I am, that undercover reporting is acceptable and ethical in very defined situations, it is another thing to approve of editing tactics that seem designed to intentionally lie or mislead about the material being presented.

Daily Show host Jon Stewart poked fun at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) warning to Democrats that ending the long-standing abuse of the filibuster by invoking what pundits insist on calling the “nuclear option” would come back to haunt them.

“Mark my words,” Stewart boomed on Thursday.“One day you Democrats will want to be obstructionist a*sholes making a mockery of our system of government. And who’ll be laughing then? Turtle Man.”

Not only did several Obamacare Navigators openly encourage the undercover reporters to lie about income status, health history and more, personal data was also being 'cross-pollinated'.
