    Rubio appeared to be reluctantly carrying out the orders from Tom Donohue at the USCOC that he will not support Tillerson. He has no poker face and is easily read when it comes to him saying things he is told to say. His purported argument appears to be because Tillerson won’t call Putin a war criminal.

    Haaaa! Markey (et, al) thinks he can school the big oilman on geopolitics as regards oil. Tillerson barely tolerant of it.

    Whadda buncha doofuses. (a barrel of oil from Saudi Arabia is much different than a barrel of oil from Canada) OMG what have we done to deserve this!

    The insufferable arrogance and convoluted thinking of some of these senators is making my head explode. I don’t know how T-Rex is putting up with it. Unbelievable childish behavior from supposedly grown men.

      Good point, Newt!

      Newt was good on Hannity radio this afternoon, talking about taking the WH Press Corps down a notch – putting them in the Executive Office Building instead of the WH itself, Rotating the seating, etc. A little distance and a little more equity among them will straighten out their abuse a bit. If not, treat them even more roughly.

      My sentiments exactly! I watched the entire hearing (on bed rest) and the utter lack of intelligence on full display by nearly every senator was profound. Rex Tilerson seemed so “large”, not in the physical sense, but his good character and breadth of knowledge, and graciousness could not be missed, not even by the fools who were “temporarily” in a position of power over him.

      I was pretty happy about the stark contrast at first, after all I fought darn hard and put in a lot of hours to get Trump elected in Florida, I was entitled to a little indulgence. Or was I? I knew logically what this bunch was all about, but today something genuinely shifted in me and it just wasn’t fun anymore.

      These fools have the power to send our men and woman to die in the name of whatever and whom ever they choose. It ended up being a sad day for me. I won’t be able to “unsee” Marco Rubio’s (among others) insane behavior, especially at the end of the hearing. God bless Mr Tilerson. God bless Mr Trump.

        I agree with every point Gforce. Tillerson’s calm and grasp of world situations exposed the total incompetence not only of the questioning senators agendas but starkly at the ability to even understand what Tillerson brings to the office! He was the adult in the room, along with former Sen. Sam Nunn, a love America first Democrat!
        After a while it was like listening to a parallel set of questions and remarks by elected officials who honest to G-d have no idea of the concept of G-d, love of country and America!
        MAGA can’t come soon enough.
        The American people got it during the election, and by G-d those senators better get in line!

          For the record I didn’t vote for Rubio, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it and left that spot blank despite the realization that we needed the majority to control the Senate. I pray every day more good Americans like Tillerson step up and offer their service so that we have better candidates to choose from in the future. I have grown weary of the idea that we should just elect someone because they have an “R” next to their name, even though their actions clearly demonstrate they have no interest in protecting our nation. We must never give up on shining a bright light on them and rooting them out.

    I think Tillerson has Coons and Menendez as supporters based upon the observations of them. Tillerson’s answer to Menendez’s last question was through the bulls eye and Menendez knew it.

    Here’s what I took away from the hearings. Democrats (and a few RINOS) badgered Tillerson about what he’s going to do about all the atrocities CURRENTLY going on in the world. Oh the irony!

    Senator Rubio must have forgotten: Russia was invited by Assad. How can our congress be so blind to Syria?

    The need to continue the prior Admin failed policies was prevalent throughout. Mr. Tillerson is the right man for Secretary of State. His calm and measured answers was very comforting.

      One of the senators…maybe Portman, reminded everyone this afternoon that Russia has had a base in Syria for the past 50 years and has had a long relationship with them.
      Obviously that point was not “understood” by lil rubio

      TY, andy. “Calm and measured” might be an understatement after watching him late today. What a reverse from John Kerry! Our world will well be edit from the T-Rex and is fortunate to have him on The Trump Team. UN-fa-ti-ga-ble. UN-fap-pa-lbe. Good team member.

    You folks in Arizona, Florida, and S. Carolina need to be flooding the phones and e-mail accounts of traitors McCain, Rubio, and Graham over their non-support for Tillerson. Why do all traitorous politicians end up on the GOP side while Dems never have any traitors. I truly believe we’d be better off if McCain and Rubio had lost their seats.

    Overall, a very good performance from Tillerson and I believe he should be and will be confirmed. I thought Corker was brilliant in his closing remarks about how Tillerson spent nine hours answering questions without the use of notes unlike some SoS’s with 30+ years experience in government (HRC) needing three-ring binders to help them fashion responses.

    I think the only area where he got hurt was on Infineum — the Exxon-Shell work-around loophole to do business with Iran without complying with the spirit of sanctions. Tillerson fumbled with his Sgt Schultz defense, which doesn’t pass the smell test (how does the CEO not know about a work-around with sanction-ladened Iran, and, not remember the SEC inquiry into the matter?). I don’t his stumble is enough to prevent him from being confirmed, but I was disappointed he didn’t handle it better.

    Rubio had a chip on his shoulder the entire time. Even Trish Regan on FBN asked what was wrong with him and she noticed that he was antagonistic towards Tillerson. She also said he asked stupid questions.

      I also think that Rubio started in on the Putin question in the beginning because he was setting up an excuse not to vote for Tillerson. He had no intention of voting for him even before he arrived today. It was obvious in his demeanor and in his questioning.

I thought he was the one going to Britain to get the porn-goods on Trump. I cheered when FOX fired him because he was so rabidly anti-Trump he couldn’t stop his shocking potty-mouth disgusting low-class rants.

    The T-Rex operates on a different level with infinite patience for those who don’t share his experience and ability. What an advantage vs. our former political operatives! I thought I knew the people heading his industry, but I am very impressed that this gentleman rose to top to head our State Department. Good show, DJT!

    Watched some of this today. First, Rubio was a complete jerk. The faux outrage was beyond the pale. Based on today’s performance, I’m sorry he was re-elected.

    As it relates to Mr. Tillerson, I’ve had concerns about Mr. Tillerson, after what I saw today, those concerns are gone. He maneuvers shark infested waters incredibly well, he’s frank and open. Not unlike DJT without the bombast. Not that bombast is a bad thing. He’s incredibly thoughtful and makes it clear he’s an advocate for who he represents. He’s going to be great for DJT and I’m looking forward to it.

    It is disturbing to me that these Senators want to predicate matters where the US uses force on “reporters”. The obsession of these Senators on Islamicizing the US is so disheartening. There is no rational basis for importing a single muslim into the US other than to obtain and exploit the assets of their country. USAid must be shut down. It has been used as almost exclusively to funnel weapons and foment war for “the” empire.

    Coming off the present administration, some of the other nations are wondering just where does America stand, with whom and about what. So, it seems to me, the last thing we need is for some senator to be force-feeding labels into the mouth of a potential Secretary of State.
