In Passing

“Disarmed by the very government that armed his murderers.”


That’s Ace, paraphrasing commenter "Roark” (at Gateway Pundit), on Brian Terry.

Fox News:

...Federal officials revealed Monday that murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and an elite squad of federal agents first fired bean bags — not bullets — at a heavily armed drug cartel crew in the mountains south of Tucson in December 2011.
Disgusting.

And remember this:  Those "bean bag” rules-of-engagement do not apply when government SWAT teams go after American citizens.

Grate expectations

Sad but True  Dept
Tam explains why this time around the Democrats are playing the class-warfare card:
...Nobody’s buying "Hope & Change” anymore, except maybe those GOP loyalists hoping Romney will bring some...

Mitch McConnell feels sad and misunderstood...

Republican FAIL   Dept
National Review: ...What’s your message to conservatives and tea-party activists who are suspicious of Republican leaders and their commitment to repeal [Obamacare]?

McConnell:  Boy, I don’t know how they could be suspicious on this issue.  Every single Republican in the House and Senate voted against Obamacare.  I must have made 125 speeches about it on the floor.  If there is any area where I don’t think conservatives of any stripe should be concerned, it would be this one.  We’ve been clear and unambiguous about Obamacare from the beginning to the end — all of it.
Well ya’see, Mitch, it’s because you and your Republican buddies in Congress-especially you guys in the Senate- have established quite a  reputation...


...not to mention that earlier in this same interview you said:
...we’re looking at all of the angles.  But our goal is to repeal it and replace it.
So already you’re doing it wrong.  And we’re supposed to trust you?

Elsewhere:
Randy Barnett (via Sebastian):
...if there are two things you cannot count on to protect liberty more than the Supreme Court, it is Congress and the Republican Party.
Bill Quick:  The Fourth Turning: Civil War

What they *need* is an “out-of-CONGRESS” experience

Republican FAIL  Dept

The Wall Street Journal:
There was bipartisan joy in Washington Friday, and you can guess the reason:  They were spending money, big money.  Congress passed a $120 billion highway funding bill.  The vote in the Senate was 74-19 and 373-52 in the House. Who says Democrats and Republicans can’t agree on anything?
...
House Republicans originally sought sensible reforms... [but] at the insistance of Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, nearly all these money savers were stripped...  Republicans also folded... on the Keystone XL pipeline...
...
Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell quipped that the... deal was like "an out of body experience” for many of his colleagues...
