This Blog Has Been Critical Of Senator Webb In The Past

Via Instapundit, there are indications of Fightin’ Jim Webb coming out swinging against the Obama administration in Politico (our Bible).  Now, as a Virginia resident, the 2006 ‘macaca’ scandal was a major indicator to me of just how decayed American politics had become. After reading Liberal Fascism, it was highly unclear how anybody with even a vaguely patriotic bone could run on the Democrat ticket.

So it’s encouraging to see the gander about Democrat tax proposals and jobs *yawn* legislation in the. . .mmmm. . .where was I? Oh, the Politico article. However, if you really want to go out in style,

with some dignity intact, here are some suggestions:

  • Co-sponsor the Honest Budget Act
  • Call for BHO’s impeachment.
  • Endorse a candidate for the Senate seat you’re about to vacate.
  • Tell it like it is about the Super Committee silliness.
  • Caucus with the GOP.

I’m sure our able commenters can think of some other ideas that would help, you know, restore some notion of limited government in the country.

    Don’t get too upset, those of us who have been with the campaign for over a year are getting the cold shoulder right now. My thinking is they are either in lock down or trying to get the biggest bang for their buck. When this is all over we’ll have an #unsustainablebartab….

    He was one of the crew that rammed through Obamacare so he gets no pass no matter what. Also he was right in there taking advantage of the silly macaca utterance by Allen. He’s a douche like all the rest so he has no standing to talk about rough politics. Typical useless politician.

    As you know Jim is USNA and USMC and decorated Veteran as well as high official career.  Also Scots-Irish!  His wife is Vietnamese-descent and they raise orphans.  His situational awareness regarding the liar in the WH and his own political leadership is less than one would expect.  His generation grew up thinking those in authority meant well by their nation and her citizens.  He retains a military man’s self-less-ness, but he also resists accepting the evil of evil in which he works.  This makes him a disappointment, even when he rejects the context of his labors of so many years, that is, even when scales start falling from his eyes.  “Boomers” are a condemned generation.

    Frankly, I would rather have had Ollie North sitting in that Senate seat, but it was not to be.
