    The fix is in.  Obama wouldn't have submitted to a vote if he wasn't assured about the outcome.  

    But everyone will go through their kabuki dance, and the media will hyperventilate.  

    I've seen this show before.

      Thank you for your concern.

      The party of Kennedy is also the party of Eastland. The party of Javits is also the party of Goldwater. Where is our party? Where is the political party that will make it unnecessary to march on Washington?

        Just realize what the likely outcome will be.

          I know what the likely outcome of every issue campaign will be, since around 2010.

          This one's a little different, but it's not like I don't see the powers arrayed against my position.

      from Hillary .... she seems to have gone completely silent.

      No interviews, statements, etc that I have seen.

      •  She probably approves (0+ / 0-)

        When she was being questioned about Benghazi, one of her statements was that she believed the US should send troops to Africa "to protect American interests there."

        That means oil interests, of course.

        Hillary is a warmonger and war hawk from waaaaaay back.  As a woman who wants to be seen as strong enough to lead a country and go to war if necessary, she's been very bellicose about war-like rhetoric.  To say or do anything that would display an iota of common sense or keeping the peace would get her labeled as 'too weak and feminine' by the Repukes and Teahadists.
