I'm sure ABC had an agenda in trying to make the Republicans look bad I only wished that the Republicans didn't make so easy for them. These two leaders of the Republican party are great examples of what is wrong with the GOP. They will vote against the spending knowing full well that the Democrats have enough votes to get it passed and because they know it will get passed they made sure that their earmarks were added to the bill. Trust me while they are stating for the camers today that earmarks are evil when they are back in their home states I guarantee that they will make the rounds to all the people getting those evil earmarks and will be delivering speeches about how they got their states "fair share".
Senators you are a cancer in the GOP and the best way to get rid of cancer is to cut it out.
Senator Cornyn is up for election in 2014 and Senator Thune is thinking about making a run at the GOP nomination in 2012. Sorry guys but you have been in Washington DC too long if you think we are so stupid that we don't understand that actions, not putting earmarks in a spending bill, are more important than making speeches about how you are opposed to earmarks. Its time to get some more fiscal conservatives in the GOP and I think we just found two more Senators that need to be replaced.
