Challenge do-nothing Warner

Sen. Mark R. Warner, Virginia Democrat, has been a do-nothing senator while carrying water for President Obama's disastrous policies. He claims to be a great businessman, but what successful business person now in position of power as a United States senator stands by and does nothing while the president enacts policies that have wreaked havoc on our economy?

Obamacare and increased taxes on everything have driven up unemployment and caused our economy to remain in a poor position. Likewise, what senator who claims to be strong on defense — especially a senator from one of the most defense-oriented states in the country — stands by and does nothing while Mr. Obama dismantles our nation's military? Our armed forces continue to be weakened by Mr. Obama's huge cuts to our defense budgets.

Similarly, since the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Mr. Warner has done nothing to get to the bottom of how and why Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed on Sept. 11, 2012. Again, here is a senator who claims to be pro-defense not asking a single question as to why our military was not called in during the attack. It is high time for our do-nothing senator to be challenged on these serious issues of the day.
