    Default Rex Tillerson: Do you have any reasons not to accept the appointment SOS?

    "Yes, lots of them, but they are all selfish. So no." Rex Tillerson at the hearing this morning.

    Trump clearly picked a quality guy, what an answer. I am amazed at all of Trump's picks. He appealed to their patriotism, and got the best possible men to take on their respective jobs.

    I'm almost tired of winning, Mr. Trump!

    I just heard where Rubio went at him pretty hard. Rubio starting listing all the things Putin has done in Syria, Chechnya, etc. including dissident killings and imprisonments and wanted Tillerson to call Putin a war criminal and Tillerson wouldn't do it. Rubio then offered a list of murdered Putin political opponents and Russian media members into the official hearing record.
    All together now!

    Of course. Rubio is a neo-con in the mold of McCain and Graham. A lot (too many) of Democrats and Republicans in Washington are just itching to liberate the **** out of somebody.

    That said, Putin is a war criminal - hell, our own host has said that on his show. He blasted Obama for being weak in the face a known war criminal and an enemy of The United States of America. That was before Trump came on the scene of course. I doubt Sean would say that today.

    Yes, Putin it ruthless.

    But is it because we backed him into a corner by advancing NATO borders right up against there border?

    Remember the goal of neo-cons is to break Russia up into smaller states....that's the end game.

    This was well knew back in early 90's after Soviet Union collapsed. It was our policy.

    Our host has also gone on quite a bit in the past extolling the manliness of Putin, so it's hard to say whether he considers him an enemy, a macho man, or a macho enemy.

    he only got 180 million dollars to resign his post...a post that he planned to resign from anyway... do you ever do any research?
