Republicans are succeeding in satisfying the needs of their racist followers as CBS News reports that the Hispanics in Arizona are about 100,000 fewer after the ethnic cleansing law was enacted. Fortunately, Arizona is suffering financially as whole cities - like San Jose - are boycotting the state. Arizona's foreign affairs department no doubt has hit rock bottom in its relations with Mexico. Hit them where it hurts - the pocketbook.
Eric Cantor (R-VA) voices the opinion of the vast majority of Republicans, that they run US foreign policy when he "stressed that the new Republican majority will serve as a check on the Administration..." regarding its Middle East foreign policy. For the opposition to make this type of remark is a deliberate attempt to undermine US foreign policy and is treason.
Putting aside the strings attached, the release of Aung San Suu Kyi by the military junta in Myanmar is a great event.
Finally - think about this: US foreign policy for the past decade has been to wage war.
