Barbara Boxer plans to bypass Republicans on climate vote

Heard about this one yesterday on Glenn Beck radio I think... These guys try to be so sneaky, they are SO underhanded, cocky and willing to kill America for their own power and misguided agendas.

I am very pleased with how many, most, of the Republicans are handling things in D.C. right now in regards to the crud being spewed from Obama and crew. If they'd been acting like this over the past ten years, then we might not have an Obama and Dem Congress right now. I don't know that it'll stick when the balance shifts again. Power does strange things to people, especially those in D.C.

Senate Environment and Public Works Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) plans to exploit a committee loophole and completely bypass the GOP on Thursday if Republicans continue their boycott of the legislative markup, according to Democratic aides and lobbyists.

Republicans have refused to attend the markup of the legislation until the Environmental Protection Agency delivers an additional analysis of the bill...

FRC: Voters Soundly Reject Radical Social Agenda In New Jersey, Virginia, and Maine

Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins released the following statement in regards to Tuesday's election results:

"Jon Corzine and Creigh Deeds trumpeted a common theme and touted a common goal: a far left social agenda and a goal to advance big government liberalism. Clearly, voters were fed up with that kind of 'change' and chose candidates whose traditional values and economic conservatism make simple good sense.

"Governor Corzine said his race was also a referendum on same-sex 'marriage,' and even chose as his running mate the author of New Jersey's same-sex 'marriage' legislation. But he was unable to overcome the strong support for man-woman marriage within his traditional base of support. Our friends at the New Jersey Family Policy Council pointed to several recent polls* that link the governor's support for same-sex 'marriage' to his underperformance among minority voters.

"Similarly, Creigh Deeds attacked Bob McDonnell for his pro-life, pro-family record. He even combed through McDonnell's two decades-old graduate writings to try to paint him as 'anti-woman.' Thankfully, Virginians did not buy into this shabby effort to discredit a fine man.

"In contrast, both Christie and McDonnell throughout the campaign stood firm in support for life and marriage. During his victory speech last night, McDonnell reaffirmed his commitment to protect 'life and liberty and property in the pursuit of happiness here in the commonwealth of Virginia.' Ken Cuccinelli never ran from his core values despite vicious attacks by The Washington Post which called him a 'bigot' and an 'embarrassment' because of his views on homosexual behavior.

"The blame for the loss in New York's 23rd congressional district lays squarely on the Republican Party bosses who wasted almost a million dollars by funding liberal candidate Dede Scozzafava who eventually removed her Republican mask by endorsing Democratic candidate Bill Owens. The election results would have been very different had the party funded a candidate who actually supported the Party's own platform and reflected the values of the district."
