National Security Scorecard

25 Aug

The folks over at Keep America Safe have just issued a Congressional score card based on votes in the area of National Security.

A cross-section of votes between 2001 and 2010 was taken to reflect a range of national security topics. Twenty-nine votes were selected in the Senate, and twenty-seven were selected in the House. The votes reflect a range of topics from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to Guantanamo Bay and detainee issues to Iran to missile defense.


Cantor    A

Boucher   C

Connolly  F

Forbes   A

Goodlatte  A

Moran  F

Nye     C

Perriello    F

Scott       F

Wittman   A

Wolf    A


Most get A’s or B’s, with the notable exception of:

Doggett   F

Edwards  C

Gonzalez  F

Green TX-9    F

Green TX-29   F

Hinojosa     F

Jackson-Lee    F

Johnson-30     F      Not Sam Johnson the war hero and patriot of TX-3

Ortiz     F

Ron Paul     F  <—- This is well deserved.

Reyes       F

Rodriguez     F

Texans and Virginians have some work to do this November.

Exit question:  Why do minorities overwhelmingly vote against national security?  Is it that they are part of the Hate America crowd or do they simply lust after the money that is appropriated for defense?  Both?  Yeah.  Probably both.

    The Johnson mentioned from Texas who got an F is NOT Rep. Sam Johnson (R TX-3). Sam got an A. Check it out at the KeepAmericaSafe website. Sam is a former POW and loyal American. He always votes the correct way on National Defense issues.

    The Johnson who got the F is liberal Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D TX-30).

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention, Ann. The post has been updated with that clarification.

    I LOVE Sam Johnson and even this Virginian knows who he is.

    Sam Johnson is one of a kind.
