    Since when have the Republicans ever cared if they harmed the country? Nixon illegally bugged political opponents, and lied to the voters repeatedly about his “secret plan” to end the war in Viet Nam. Reagan’s Administration deregulated the banks, which led directly to the mortgage meltdown during the Bush years. Bush started not one, but two foreign wars, to distract the American people from his disasterous economic policies (such as the 1.5 *trillion* dollar bailout for Republican-owned banks) and line the pockets of his Republican cronies; even Bush could not have been stupid enough to not know that the Afghan rebels had already defeated Soviet forces in the USSR’s version of Viet Nam, and that the only way to win a war in Afghanistan is to carpet-bomb the entire nation with nukes.

    The last Republican who put the nation’s good ahead of his own wealth was Dwight Eisenhower.

    So childish that Sen.Shelby would hold up Pres. Obama’s nominations( 80 of them, I believe), as retaliation for Alabama not becoming the site of a new FBI lab. Sen. Shelby surely will never be nominated as a statesman. He’s a perfect example of why people are so angry and a perfect example of why many will surprise the Rs on election day by voting for Democrats. I am one Republican who will be voting for Democrats.
