    Here's why:

    Harry Reid is pandering to the Hispanic vote and holding our soldiers hostage in order to buy votes.

    I think we need to cut spending in our defense budget, but how the hell are we supposed to know what the actual "defense" budget is, with crap like this in there? Why oh why couldn't the GOP have put a sane candidate in to run against Reid?

    Because who would dare vote "NO" on a defense bill while we're still fighting in Afghanistan and have troops in Iraq, which is still quite hot? To vote "NO" would be unpatriotic and is evidence that you don't support the troops.

    Reid is not stupid. Just sleazy.

    I am of the opinion that no defense bill should ever have an amendment attached.

    Democrats and moderates voted in the GOP primaries to get the worst candidate possible.

    REALLY? I could have sworn Sharron Angle was a Tea Bagger, voted onto the GOP ticket by Tea Baggers? Of course, that is just what Angle said.....
