To The Daily Sun,
Some impressions of the confirmation hearings thus far: Senators Graham and Cruz are showing real concern for the people who are coming before them to testify. As with the Democrats on various committees they too are asking probing questions (something new for any GOP/Tea Party member of Congress, right? You bet!).
But, and there is always a but which has to be added to this conversation.
Senators Graham and Cruz are to be considered the ultimate hypocrites. Where were these two individuals during the GOP primaries? Are they now suffering from buyer's remorse? It seems to be their stock-in-trade that they say one thing and do another. Will they follow their conscience or follow the party line and do what they are told to do?
They and other congressional GOPers and Tea Party members are not doing any favors for the citizens of these United States. They are truly making a mockery of our legislative process and body of laws. They sadly continue to speak out of both sides of their mouths.
Is it any wonder that this country is in such horrible straits? Come on America! Wake up and see the truth of just how the GOP/Tea Party members of Congress have taken this country to a very scary place. They will now support President-elect Trump and Vice President-elect Pence for one reason, that is to save or guarantee their own re-election and continued place in Congress.
Now it remains to be seen if Rubio will back up his strong words with actions and vote against Tillerson. Otherwise Rubio becomes yet another party hack who follows the pack of congressional hypocrites.
In watching this latest round of hearings now and listening to Senator McCain try to make a case for again intervening in other countries' troubles, one has to wonder why in the world he continues to believe that inserting this country into more war and strife will resolve centuries of deep discord, hatred and bloodshed.
Advocating for placing our soldiers in harm's way is foolhardy and purposely short-sighted. A short planned trip to other countries, then framing it to sound as if one is now an expert about their affairs is both misleading and a great disservice to the American public at large.
