    Unfortunately he will probably secure enough votes.

    What he's saying so far is incredibly balanced. He disagrees with Trump on many issues apparently. Good.

    But isn't that exactly what you'd expect him to do as a strategy just to secure the votes?

    Is he a neocon warmonger like the last two failed and incompetent Secretaries of State? If not, then confirm him.

    Honestly, I can't read his mind.

    Do you even know anything about him or are you back to making stuff up like your thread about Obama's farewell speech which I again remind you all modern presidents give.

    All of these candidates are well prepped/rehearsed. And it shows.

    Although I think that Tillerson is a good choice (and he will be confirmed), I think that he should be chewed by them as much as possible.

    Ask many questions, sure. Chewing on them might be a little too physical.

    I am told that politicians and CEO's are tasty.

    Syrian soldiers sure are. Here is one of Obama's beloved "moderate" rebels eating the heart of an Assad soldier.

    Rex Tillerson as CEO of ExxonMobil lobbied hard against removing sanctions against Russia. Russia, who is providing support to Assad. So do you love Russia, Syria and Assad then?

    How refreshing to have a worldly businessman taking the helm at State over the career politicos like those telling us stories about non-existent WMD and cover-ups in Benghazi.

    Best of Luck to you, Rex.

    He also wanted to remove sanctions against Iran, Syria and Sudan at points of time when there was significant state sponsored terrorism in these places.

    Thank God Rubio didn't make president. After hearing him speak, I have no doubt that we would be at war with Russia within the first week of his presidency :(.

    I'm somewhat impressed. Tillerson is doing a good job at the hearings.
