    Rex Tillerson's comments on Russia are exactly right, A dialogue is needed, not McCain, Graham & Rubio's insane neocon war stance.

    McCain and Graham need to be put out to pasture. Those two fuckhead, fence sitters have been useless for too many years. As for Rubio, he obviously didn't learn a goddamn thing last year and has decided to double down on losing by swinging even harder to the right.

    It's Rubio that's hammering Tillerson the hardest. Is this the way the anyone but Trump faction tries to get even?

    So I listened to some of the Rex hearings this morning on my way to numerous mtgs, all of the sudden I clearly heard animals in the back spewing hatred. Did the fucking press give them mics???? cheese and rice, it was almost like it was setup by the press. You never can hear what these people say, but today, oh no, they were on mic. I'm hoping they get knee capped.

    how were they even let into the room? WTF????

    Politicians need a big bad enemy. For the Senate GOP dudes it's Russia, For Trump it's China. For the Democrats it's Trump

    it was sad and pathetic. little marco better get over it, and play ball as a conservative, or he is going to fuck up his own future election chances. He can easily be primaried and replaced with another real conservative.

    Yeah, I turned to the TV when the morons shouted as well. The cameras immediately zoomed right in and you could hear it all.

    The establishment, it's gross.

    There always has to be a boogeyman, no matter who is in charge.

    If one doesnt exist they just manufacture one.

    I saw Rubio today, asking Tillerson if Putin is a war criminal, because of what was done to Aleppo.

    I wonder if he'd call FDR a war criminal, for carpet-bombing German cities...or Truman, for nuking Japanese civilians.

    Modern warfare is ugly, Marco. The days of armies shooting at each other across open fields is over. Deal with it.

    Graham has been reliably neo-conservative. I would hardly consider him to be a fence sitter.

    Easier to get votes if you tell the public to be scared of something and you're the one to save them from it.
