Why Trump?
Because every once in a while the Eagle has to remind the Vulture WHO he is.

Daw and Juli
 
should we not be surprised that Fox is not covering this....
 
They enjoy keeping their audience in a frenzy.... that way the TeaParty/GOP leadership won't worry about relevant and responsible platforms to present to their supporters.  Its all they have to run on.
 
 this type of divisiveness is what they believe is going to help them win elections.

I wonder what the faithful fox viewers, who may have loved ones serving there, think of them completely ignoring this historic moment. Are they going to believe whatever BS fox gives them for not carrying this?

BTW, BRAVO, Sen. Bob Graham had the courage to publicly oppose the Iraq invasion and he just said it was a "pack of lies". BRAVO Senator, we need you back in Congress.

I had to make a quick trip to the grocery store so I missed Senator Graham's remarks but let's not forget that Ted Kennedy, God rest his soul, and Nancy Pelosi also were very vocal in their oppostion to the Iraq war and voted against it.


Btw, while I was at the grocery store I asked the other people in line if they had heard the news and when I told them one lady, who has a nephew in the 4th Stryker brigade, burst into tears of joy and hugged me for telling her about it.

Daw, it certainly did warm my heart and I did see former Senator Chafee before I went to the store.
 
Here's more on those who voted against the war........

Btw, as I was leaving the store and the word was spreading, I heard many people cheering and looked back and gave them a big thumbs up.
