GOP Waves White Flag on Hillary

GOP Waves White Flag on Hillary
Commentary by Sanford D. Horn
January 21, 2009

With a vote of 94-2, the GOP has surrendered and capitulated, thus becoming the party of superfluousness. Two Democratic parties are not necessary, as the original is bad enough. In addition to the elected Democrats, there are now the RINOs behaving like fawning sycophants. Not only should Clinton not have been approved, neither should Geithner (Treasury), Holder (AG), Solis (Labor), Daschle (HHS), Duncan (Education) and La Hood (Transportation) be confirmed - EVER. For reasons why, please read my column: "The Time is Now for GOP to Grow a Set" at

Kudos go to Senators Jim De Mint (R-SC) and David Vitter (R-LA) for having the stones to stand up, do what is right and cast the two lone "nay" votes against Hillary.

Even the reliable Republican Kansas Senator Pat Roberts told Geithner during his continuing confirmation hearing that he would be confirmed. How can the Senate vote to confirm a tax evader and one who harbored an employee whose legal status expired under his watch. Do we really want a person in charge of the IRS who flagrantly snubbed his nose at that institution?

RINOs who continue down their current path should be prepared to face tough primary fights from real Republicans in 2010.
