Jim Webb is a good man...A 1968 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Webb served as a Marine Corps infantry officer until 1972, and is a highly decorated Vietnam War combat veteran. During his four years with the Reagan administration, Webb served as the first Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs, then as Secretary of the Navy.

After graduating from Annapolis, Webb was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps. As a first lieutenant during the Vietnam War he served as a platoon commander with Delta Company, 1st Battalion 5th Marines. He earned a Navy Cross, the second highest decoration in the Navy and Marine Corps for heroism in Vietnam. Webb also earned the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, and two Purple Hearts.....an American hero..whos son serves today!

I think he had enough of Reid,and the LOONS,of his party...he is a Good Democrat...but Pelosi ,Reid and all the LOONS may be too much......in any event it will be a Republican seat!..and thats BETTER!!

Pro-Life - Good
Bioenergy - Dumb
Limiting Farm Subsidies - Good
Hollywood Tax Credits - Dumb
Repealing Obamacare - GREAT!
Extending Tax Relief - Good
Extending Unemployment Bennies - Stupid
Repealing IRS 1099 from Obamacare - Good
Repealing Don't Ask / Don't Tell - Bad
Habeas Corpous for Terrorists - STUPID

So far, Mr. Webb seems right down the middle. Way better than Reid, Pelosi or Obama. Hate to seem him go. At least he seems as if he's capable of learning new tricks.

There was nothing to stop him from becoming an independent or a republican, there was no chains holding him back from speaking out in his own party. under his leadership this nation pursued a foreign policy that has allowed the government of South Africa to officially sanction the slaughter of their White Population. He didnt speak out. His background sounds great, maybe he didnt want to loose what he had,
