Chief Gillespie: "I got the motive which is money, and the body of Ambassador Stevens which is dead."

There are between 11, and 16 Democrat Senate seats in play in November. Republicans need to pick 3 or 4 issues. lower taxes, cleaner government, money for Education, and they need to stress the importance of weeding out corruption. They will easily take back the Senate. Then they have to follow through. Any Republican that turns out to be as corrupt, or lazy, or inept as the Democrats he represents has to be put out in the 2016 election.

The Republicans haven't done anything in nearly six years except cash their $174,000
paychecks. Lazy? Useless? Worthless? Parasitic? All four.

Put them out!

And the Democrats? They've done what to warrant $174,00?

Don't bother answering Obamacare cuz what they passed isn't what we got via Obama and his shifting implementations.

It depends on what we wanted the Republicans to do. I think the fact they stymied the Democrats at every turn means they did exactly what we sent them to D C to do. Any time they can keep the Democrats from wasting another trillion dollars is a good time,

What's another trillion dollars to Republicans?

They sat idly by and watched G.W. Bush add $7.5 trillion to the federal deficit
That was on top of Reagan and G.H.W. Bush adding 4 trillion.

Grand Republican total=about $12 trillion.

I repeat my question.
What's another trillion dollars to Republicans?

President Bush didn't spend in 8 years what President Obama spend in 4. You don't need to lie about it, We remember the Bush years, and they were a damn sight better then the last 6 under the Keyan kid.

I would put money on Warner losing. Virginians are not big on vote theft. There was a problem with the dead voting in the last election. This is the first chance the people have to correct that problem.
