From Do-Nothing to Know-Nothing
Author: BobR    Date: 2015-03-18 10:39:54

When was the last time you remembered a Republican statesman? Some might say Reagan... some might say Goldwater... some might say Eisenhower. I would agree with that last one. None of them would stand a chance in today's Republican party. From doing nothing in Congress for the last several years, to acting stupidly, the party faithful must really be feeling despair as they watch presidential hopes disappear every 4 years.

McConnell: No Loretta Lynch confirmation until vote on human trafficking bill
"It's not a threat. We need to finish this human trafficking bill that came out of the Judiciary Committee unanimously . . . because the next week we'll be doing the budget and the next two weeks after that Congress is not in session," McConnell said on CNN's "State of the Union."

The Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act, authored by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), has been stalled after Democrats accused Republicans of sneaking anti-abortion language into the bill. McConnell noted that Democrats on the Judiciary Committee unanimously agreed on the bill before forwarding it.

"They all voted for the very same language in a bill in December," he said.

Senate Democrats say Republicans sneaked the language into authorization measures. At question is a provision that the new Domestic Trafficking Victims’ Fund will be subject to Hyde Amendment limitations. The long-standing amendment prohibits the use of federal taxpayer funds for abortions. The new fund, created under the proposed bill, would be supported by fines imposed on traffickers.

Class in Leadership

If there's one thing Republicans hate, it's not having a mortal enemy to demonize, to scare their constituents, and to fatten the wallets of their buddies in the defense contract industry. It's also to separate the men from the boys (in their small minds anyway), even though very few of them would be willing to actually go mano-a-mano with anyone. The Middle East is always low-hanging fruit for them, because it's easy enough to stereotype and convince their simple-minded sycophants that everyone in the region is dangerous.

Well - except for Israel, of course. Israel is the Promised Land full of noble men who only want to protect the Land of Jesus and Abraham from those heathen Muslims (who also happen to believe in the same God, but that's another story).

They also hate President Obama, so what better way to poke a stick in his eye, show support for Israel, and demonize another country in the region than to invite Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress? Unfortunately for them, they appear to have stepped in it.
