Will the Establishment ever wake up? Posted by Staff
Establishment Republicans are outraged with President Obama's handling of the situation in Iraq. McCain has called for the firing of Obama's entire National Security team, Lindsey Graham has said the President's policies "scares the hell out" of him, and John Boehner has accused Obama of "napping" while Iraq burns. But wouldn't it be nice of Republicans were half as impassioned about protecting our nation from invasion as they are about protecting Iraq from invasion? Why are they so concerned with Iraq borders, but are so unwilling to defend ours? The crisis at the border is becoming increasingly more dangerous, and what are Boehner, McCain, Graham and Establishment Republicans doing?
