Did anyone else hear Claire McCaskill on the Senate Floor? Those PIGS!!
She was to hold a hearing on our troops training Afghan Police, and the Repugs BLOCKED the hearings because of HCR!!!
She had witnesses, etc to hold hearings to HELP OUR TROOPS get the job done in Afghanistan - and the PIGS blocked the hearing.

She was livid.

The Hill has reported it now

1. She did an excellent job! And I agree, she was pissed! As well she should be --

7. That was a great line, esp when she said we are paying with our taxdollars.
Tax dollars - exactly what the pigs are screaming about against this bill.

4. These f@#king assholes...
this information needs to be spread far and wide. Our troops are expendible in their opinion. Cry baby assholes.

6. I just sent this to a friend of mine
Her husband, who is also my friend, is probably the only Republican other than my family who I associate with. He joined the military in the 80's and Reagan was his hero. But the GOP does not have his back anymore. I hope my friend, who is an Obama supporting Dem, will clue him in on what's going on here at home.

8. Yes, I caught that live.
Pretty soon we will be able to tell at a glance who is Republican or not in Washington, they will have cut their noses off to spite their faces.

Really ugly, these obstructionist. Mean and ugly.

9. Yes I saw that.
So, the GOP has no qualms now about quashing hearings that could help our troops get the jone done quicker so they can leave.

That means a longer stay with more death.

Yay, GOP! Finding new ways to lead people to their deaths.

22. If the shoe were on the other foot, GOP would be calling Dems TRAITORS.
Edited on Thu Mar-25-10 11:51 AM by quiet.american
I know that's not a newsflash, but Republicans do something like this and they still get called "our friends across the aisle" by most Dems.

I'm glad Claire put the sunshine to this.
