Ignore Particulars. Complain about Process. Change the Subject.

Behold, Senator-elect Ron Johnson's foreign policy strategy:
Johnson told WisPolitics Tuesday he has the same concerns about the treaty that others are now expressing: that it ties the nation’s defense missile system to a reduction in nuclear arms.

The Senate voted 67-28 to advance the treaty.

“I’m concerned about anything in this lame-duck session that is just being rammed through without adequate debate, without proper hearings,” Johnson said.

While acknowledging the treaty has received a fair amount of hearings and debate, Johnson said he was concerned about other issues the Senate has taken up in the lame-duck session.
Ugh.

MORE: For more on why opposing the START treaty was a bone-headed idea from the beginning, here's Fred Kaplan.

//lame-duck session//

you ain't seen nothing yet....wait till Ron & the Rethugs get to the Senate and we can start the "Limp Dick Session". Ron seems to be a man of few words and those are mostly ....vague,vacuous,vapid,vicious,vindictive,venal.... to most Republican'ts...it's all about Victory.... and creating Victims.

Did the words actually come from RoJo's mouth, or Mitch McConnell's press secretary? Think he or Scotty would win if the election was today?

Give the GOPs this much, they know when to peak- it sure ain't when they're actually on the job.

Was watching some highlights on C-Span and HLN the past few days.

"“I’m concerned about anything in this lame-duck session that is just being rammed through without adequate debate, without proper hearings,” .

This sentence seems to be the mantra of every single Republican in the House AND Senate.

In my best Snidley Whiplash voice: "Yes, we must debate these things. They are important things. They must be studied at length so that we know what the effects of our decisions will be...."

Just watch.
Come January they're going to fast track and ram the rails.
