95-1 except for running man. Rand Paul voted present

The Hill: Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) was the only senator to vote against a resolution on Wednesday backing Finland’s and Sweden’s entry to NATO.

The Senate approved the resolution in a 95-1 vote. One senator, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), voted present.

The resolution backs Finland and Sweden joining NATO. The House approved a resolution in a bipartisan 394-18 vote last month that formally supported the two Nordic countries joining the military alliance. All opposition in the House came from the Republican Party.

Hawley’s vote against the resolution did not come as a surprise. He had announced his intent to vote against the resolution earlier this week, outlining his opposition in an op-ed published by The National Interest.

He said he does not believe the U.S. should expand its security commitments in Europe, because America’s “greatest foreign adversary” is China.

[Hawley] "said he does not believe the U.S. should expand its security commitments in Europe, because America’s 'greatest foreign adversary' is China."

That is true enough, but I simply do not see how it applies. You might as well say, "never mind that bully over there beating on that dude. There's a bigger bully two blocks over, and we gotta watch out for him."

that is Fox's strategy - to deflect to China. Other than pro-Russia hosts like Tucker & Sean, most of their reports also condemn Russia & support Ukraine

Sean is just a dumb clod. Tucker is a Russian agent or same as makes no difference.

Sean is a little more careful about crossing lines. Tucker doesn't care

Marci (marcinmin) said...

Tucker doesn't care

Tucker has the Swanson fortune to fall back on if FOX throws him out. He can afford to not care.

I hope Trump gave Hawley the pat on the head Hawley was clearly looking for.
