    Yes, and Congress does a wonderful job in all of it's other duties as well lol.

    Further, and on a serious note, I understand that the SecDef doesn't determine foreign policy. However, I do think Sen Hagel will have impact upon it.

    My comments are in context. It is laid out as such to help the read identify which parts are talking about which sections of your post.
    Im not interested in reading your rhetoric and rolleyes.
    Then either skip the parts that offend your senses or stop saying stupid ****. Either one will get you the results.

    If someone is hated so much by both the left and the right, then he must be doing something good.

    That is what I am asking.. what aint true? I get conflicting information on what the whole issue is.... if it is the Israel issue then it is true... provided we are talking about the same thing.. hence me asking!
