Tonight, Tonight….

Fox News Channel’s Jamie Colby has a new report up talking about the big showdown in Berkeley, CA tonight – TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12TH – when patriots from around the nation will hold an all-day pro-troop demonstration and protest against the Berkeley City Council for their reprehensible attacks against our military men and women.

The report is called: “Berkeley Military Bashers Meet Marine Supporters”

Oh… while we’re talking about this, there’s a protest scheduled….anytime between 5:00 AM and 7:00 PM which is when the Berkeley City Council meeting begins.  You can also sign the petition that we will be delivering personally to the City Council: http://www.MoveAmericaForward.org [2]

There’s this, too;Manu Raju at The Hill notes some interestying moves in the Senate [3] as regards all this:

Senate Democrats left two days of legislative business officially open last week, hobbling GOP efforts to bring up a bill punishing a liberal California city for scolding Marine Corps recruiters.

Republicans said Democrats clearly wanted to avoid being forced to choose between the Marine Corps or Berkeley, Calif., known for its liberalism and fervent anti-war positions.

Instead of adjourning at the end of a day as usual, the Senate “recessed” twice, a move that, under Senate rules, slows the process of adding new bills to the calendar. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did not adjourn until last Friday, effectively pushing back floor consideration on the GOP bill until Tuesday – the same day that the city council is likely to tone down its call for Marine Corps recruiters to leave town.

“The only reason to recess is to block something, and the thing that got blocked by Reid’s stall tactic was the Semper Fi Act,” said spokesman Wesley Denton, referring to the bill introduced by his boss, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.).

“Democrats have chosen not to defend the Marine Corps, but to pander to anti-war protesters and Berkeley officials that are actively trying to impede military recruitment.”

Where are your loyalties, Harry? [4]

No shock, this.  we’ve always known where the loyalties of Harry Reid lie… and it’s decidedly NOT with our country, or it’s military, or for that matter, freedom around the world.

Ya know… there’s only one thing that can make John McCain attractive, and I think I see what that is, now… Democrats.

The recalculation on McCain continues.
