"Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, announced Thursday that he would support a GOP filibuster of Chuck Hagel’s nomination to be defense secretary."But is Portman & his radical GOP cabal just embarrassing the core of the party?
The American Conservative suggests:
"No one outside of a small core of hard-liners sympathizes with what Senate Republicans are doing..Just another political failure from SW Ohio…..
The entire episode shows them to be hopelessly beholden to people whose foreign policy views have led to disaster for the country and contributed to three major Republican defeats."
