Rex Tillerson Confirmed as Secretary of State

The Senate voted to confirm Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State moments ago by a margin of 56 to 43.  All of the Republicans and four Democrats voted in favor of the nomination.  The four Dems who joined the majority were Manchin of WV, Heitkamp of ND, Warner of VA and King of ME. 

The key to this vote is not that Tillerson was approved.  That outcome was never in doubt.  Nope, the real key is that the Democrats voted 43 to 4 against Tillerson.  This is a man who has an impeccable record and who knows more about the world than just about any other possible nominee.  Simply put, this is a man who has much more on the ball than our last two nominees:  Hillary Clinton and John Kerry.  Clinton's main credit was that she was married to a president so she had met many world leaders.  Kerry was dumb as a rock but claimed to know everything.  They were approved easily.  Now we have someone who seems like a great pick, and the Dems fight him because he was appointed by their vision of the anti-Christ, Donald Trump.

This non-stop idiotic Democrat opposition to everything Trump does is getting really old quickly.  At some point, the Dems have a choice:  they can start caring about what will be good for the country or they can continue their childish knee-jerk opposition to President Trump.  If they keep on that second course, it will take them over the cliff soon enough.  We are watching the Democrats commit suicide.
