  1. Lieberman, Feinstein and Schumer have spoken between roughly 10 AM and 10:30 AM for repealing DADT and for Dream Act. Schumer is speaking now and saying Dream Act is about equality.

    Schumer is prattling all the standard reasons. The “drive for equality”. The people against “They always fail.” “We will prevail.” They each made it clear that their vote on Dream Act is a vote against those who oppose them. In fact, Schumer spoke primarily against those who oppose him on Dream Act.

  2. McCain is talking pretty hard right now. I’ve never seen him like this before. I wonder if this new John McCain persona will last.

  3. Blumenthal may look like a emotionally stunted verison of George McFly from that movie ‘Back to the Future’ but don’t let appears fool. He’s a very slick political player to say the least. He was the State Attorney General here in Connecticut for a good 20 years before he was elected to the Senate last November.

  4. The North needs to clean house. This goes especially for the Hoosier Nation which has the RINO Dick Lugar who is expected to vote for the DREAM Act and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal.

  5. Regardless of how this votes goes, I can say in good conscience that I encouraged OD readers to vote AGAINST Harry Reid, Lisa Murkowski, Michael Bennet, Patty Murray, Barbara Boxer, Chuck Schumer, Russ Feingold, Blanche Lincoln, Chris Coons and so on.

    I TOLD YOU to vote against them.

  6. That POS Harry Reid is on now. The fact that he wasn’t defeated last November was a big disappointment for me.

    Hunter, we definitely need to clean house up here in the North. The GOP here in Connecticut is completely worthless, the don’t talk about social issues such as illegal immigration or anything. They’re all Country Club politics and little else.

  7. Nightwolf,

    Even a worthless Connecticut Republican would vote for a Republican Senate majority leader. That would put Jeff Sessions in charge of the Immigration Subcommittee in the Senate. Thereby killing all amnesty bills in the Senate.

  8. OK

    I consider myself conservative, however thinking about it, I understand the idea behind the “Dream” Act. They were brought here illegally, as children, and are suffering the consequences from their parent’s actions.

    How can we fix this?

    I outright agree that having illegal aliens fighting in the military is a bad idea. This could potentially be a training tool for illegal aliens to get military tactics and go back to Mexico to work for some drug cartel.

    However I do not think they should get a free college education or priority over citizens for placement in colleges.

    Can anyone offer an alternative to the Dream Act? First thing I would do is close the borders and put up a wall. That would bring in some jobs.

  9. Hunter, I agree with you on that. McMahon wasn’t a bad Senate candidate at all and is much preferable to Jew-Boy Blumenthal. Her biggest mistake is that she refused to embrace the Tea Party – if she had I think would have won.

    We need to get to work reforming the GOP here in CT.

  10. @Hunter

    “I heard Murkowski announced as YEA.”

    She’s a Roman Catholic what do you expect—those are her co-religionists invading our country.

  11. Webb is married to some Vietnamese woman and has a half-gook kid. He’ll be defeated in 2012 I think or at least that’s what I hope.

  12. Just goes to show the idea of a “Blue Dog” Democrat is laughable. There is no such thing as a “conservative Democrat.” Look at the vote on the DREAM Act in the House where the “Blue Dogs” who lost voted in favor of amnesty.

  13. Senator McCaskill of Missouri voted Yea.

    A bit surprising considering that she ran against amnesty in her last election.
