On the day that President Obama called on the nation to put aside politics as usual and move our country forward, Texas Senator John Cornyn demonstrated that he is completely deaf. Sen. Cornyn, in the grips of absolute hubris, announced that he would put a hold on Senator Hillary Clinton's nomination as Secretary of State.
No one, not even John Cornyn, suggests that she is not competent or qualified for the job. This is pure grandstanding played for the right wing of his party. In what is probably his opening publicity stunt for a run for the Republican nomination, the senator from Texas raised no concerns about Senator Clinton, but rather seeks to color her with her husband's work since leaving office.
Sen. Cornyn will not stop Hillary Clinton from becoming Secretary of State. Nevertheless, we all need to call and email his office to let him know that a new day has come and that we will not tolerate his games of political division. Let him know that you like the new tone President Obama is trying to set for our country. Tell Sen. Cornyn that his tone-deaf leadership does not serve our country well and will not serve his political ambitions.
Call 202-224-2934 today. Tell others and ask them to call. Send emails. If we can create a sufficient outcry, perhaps we will discourage politicians in either party from playing politics with our nation's future.
