Strong On Defense Republicans

The perception, or at least what the GOP would have you believe, is that the Republican Party is the party that will keep you safe from evil, foreign boogeymen while the Democratic Party is weak on national security and defense.

And yet, we see stories like Senator Richard Shelby's, who until recently help up every Obama administration nomination until he got paid off, and even after backing off, still has holds on top positions in the Air Force. And he couldn't care less.

CNN's Dana Bash asked the right-wing senator yesterday whether his actions are justified.
BASH: I spoke with Geoff Morrell over at the Pentagon and just asked him what the impact is of not having these three people in place -- one of whom, as you know, is the number two at the Air Force. He said, "Without these people, we're not firing on all cylinders." And he also said, "It does adversely affect the organization."
Are you worried about that? This is a time of war --
SHELBY: The Pentagon is a big place. I don't think one or two will affect anything except on the margins.
BASH: Do you think that the nominees you have holds on are qualified?
SHELBY: Oh, I don't have any idea.
That's right. Republican Alabama Senator Richard Shelby has no idea if nominees for three top positions in the Air Force are qualified, yet he continues to block them. What would Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Michelle Malkin, or any of the Fox News hacks be spewing if this had been a Democratic Senator during the Bush years? Just another example of the infinite hypocrisy in the GOP.

My opinion is that the best source for authentic Replica handbags is an authorized dealer. Buying a purse from the Internet is a very risky decision. It doesn’t matter if you are planning on purchasing it from an online store or from Designer handbags, there is always a high change that you’ll get tricked into paying a small fortune on a cheap knockoff. If you aren’t an expert than it will be really difficult to know what to look for when checking how authentic looking a <>répliques montres is. This is why I highly advise you to go to a <>Omega replica watches store if you want to be sure that you are actually buying a<> christin dior handbags purse.
