    I do not like Senator McCain for many reasons, but he had a great speech today, as if he was channeling Abraham Lincoln or something, lol.

    That does not change the facts regarding his collaboration with the enemy, his lies to his constituents or his cowardice of the past.

    But I can over look that now if he is going to lead the Senate like he can and should.

    He can leave this life a winner if he would truly lead.

    Letting Clinton get away with crime is not bipartisanship, OL.

    Then investigate her. You've got the Congress and the White House.

    *I* dont have Congress or the WH, as I am not a Republican, and the Republican leadership doesnt listen to their rank and file anyway, even if I were.

    The only question is whether the Awan arrest will yield anything and if Sessions has the balls to pursue it.

    arming terrorists? Did he forget history?
    Amnesty? Did he forget history?
    He is a neocon. Stalin thought violence was the answer as well.
    He supports federal power. What about our COTUS?
    He was main sponsor for a campaign finance bill that he SAID would help curb special interests in our govt when in fact, it was going to help INCUMBENTS the media and special interests groups.
    He shit on the first amendment. His words "would rather have a clean government than one where, quote, First Amendment rights are being respected, that has become corrupt. If I had my choice, I’d rather have the clean government.”
    Didnt he say people that dont support wars are unpatriotic?
    He thought that shit was "good?"
    Would you like me to continue?

    I'm sure that Hinkley, Oswald and Boothe thought the same thing.

    I cannot think of a single politician, ever, that I hated enough to rip to shreds during his swan song, when a long career is about to end in death.

    Bit of a stretch for an analogy isn't it?
