You remember Del. Joe Morrissey (D-Richmond), right? He was the white guy trying to tell Rosalyn Dance she wasn't black enough to be a black Democrat. Well, according to WRIC in Richmond, we now have THIS ...
HENRICO, Va - The Henrico Commonwealth's attorney Shannon Taylor has confirmed there is a police investigation underway involving Henrico delegate Joe Morrissey (D-Henrico) and a juvenile girl.
No details on the age of the juvenile and no arrest has been made at this time. We are working to get more information and when we do we will pass it along.
What a disaster this will turn out to be if Obama lets the machine take us into war again. I get the feeling the better angels of his nature will resist, but the political and military pressure he must be under to flex our muscles (for no reason) is probably quite intense. Thankfully, there seems to be some real bipartisan opposition to this folly right here in Virignia. From Politico:
Sen. Tim Kaine:
“Absent an imminent threat to United States national security, the U.S. should not be engaged in military action without congressional approval.”
Okay, that was kind of bland but I suppose that is the best we'll get out of Kaine, who's is a lackey of O of A. But thankfully, Rep. Scott Rigell stepped up to the plate and offered this:
“It is not the king’s army,” Rigell told POLITICO. “The point is here is we have to challenge this basic premise that’s dangerously permeating Washington and really throughout America that it’s the president’s prerogative alone. It’s not. The use of that much force should be a judicious collaborative decision.”
Rigell, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, called engagement in the Middle East a “quagmire.”
“It’s a quagmire military, it’s a conundrum politically … a cauldron of confusion. This is a region that is just inherently unstable,” Rigell said. “The idea of injecting, inserting U.S. troops — I haven’t seen anything yet that reaches that level.”
Woof. I hope people are listneing to Rigell on this.
