Hello? Anybody in there?

I just wrote: ""...keep em down at the local armory..." is infringing upon the right of the people to keep and bear those arms.

Explain to me what you don't get about not allowing someone to keep and bear arms but instead making them keep their gun down at the local armory under Lock & Key under someone else's control.

You have no concept of "FREEDOM" because you have become jaded to becoming a domesticated effeminate lap dog with no teeth.

True after the Civil War and the Progressive Republicans wanted nothing to do with the Conservative Democrats either and the Republicans made Progressivism the new standard too after the Civil War too.

Senate Republicans Make a Spectacle of Themselves

The impressive thing about the anti-Hagel effort is how politically tone-deaf it is. Itís not just that their opposition is misguided, but they stand to gain nothing from it. No one outside of a small core of hard-liners sympathizes with what Senate Republicans are doing. While they may not be losing any votes over this, they are making sure that all of the moderates, independents, and realists that they have alienated over the last ten years will keep running away from them. Except for dedicated partisans, no one can look at the display most Senate Republicans have put on over the last eight weeks and conclude that these people should be in the majority.

Many of Hagelís most vocal Senate critics right now were elected in the last two elections. For example, Cruz, Ayotte, and Lee have nothing personally at stake in defending the Iraq war or the wisdom of the ďsurge.Ē None of them voted to support either of these, and many of them werenít in the Senate when Hagel was. I might be able to understand the hostility of older members that bear a grudge against Hagel, but the hostility of the new members is much stranger. They are damaging their reputations to defend the legacy of other Republicansí failures. Partisan loyalty I can understand. Itís the attachment to the worst mistakes of the worst postwar Republican administration that I canít fathom.

Thereís no question that Republicans in Washington are desperate for a winning issue, but Senate Republicans seem to be missing the point that stalling Hagelís confirmation (which will happen eventually) isnít a winning issue for them. In the short-term, they will take a justified beating in the press for their ridiculous tactics, and they are ensuring that the GOP continues to be perceived as nothing more than a party of bombastic hard-liners. The entire episode shows them to be hopelessly beholden to people whose foreign policy views have led to disaster for the country and contributed to three major Republican defeats. Another consequence will be that future Republican Cabinet nominees for major posts are now much more likely treated in the same way. That wonít be good for future Republican administrations or the government as a whole. With a few notable exceptions, Senate Republicans are needlessly wounding their party and making a spectacle of themselves in the process.
