    Rubio says he isn't voting in Favor.....plus Santorum had made a push to block Hagel by getting up a Website that would send the peoples thoughts Directly to those on the Committee.

    I guess you didn't see any of the coverage. Just go online and watch it.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    i did
    hagel held his own against the other republicans

    i thought lindsey graham was going to hit him with his pocketbook when hagel refused to agree to change his position on israel


    ... so i can only conclude the part where lindsey was beat down as the portion of the hearing that fascinated you

    like it.
    Hagel deserved every bit of it and then some.

    His response to his own words being played before him ?

    He denied his sentiment. Your typical politician under questioning.

    I get it, lying scumbag politicians dont offend you. Good for you.

    Youv'e traded your character for a corrupt political agenda.

    Some of us were raised correctly by our parents and call a lie a lie.

    You really have very little to brag about.

    appears my assessment was right
    this thread is about reich wing angst because the GOP was unable to get to hagel during the confirmation hearings
    man up, republicans

    Re: Obama expected to nominate Chuck Hagel as secretary of Defense

    The Case against Hagel.....
    Why the former Nebraska senator is the wrong choice for the Pentagon, by.....



    Republican Senator John Cornyn Senate Whip!!!!!

    After all, the former Nebraska senator is the same person who has consistently opposed sanctions against Iran. He is the same person who wanted Washington to support Iranian membership in the World Trade Organization. The same person who voted against designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist group (at a time when the IRGC was orchestrating the murder of U.S. troops in Iraq). The same person who refused to sign a letter asking the European Union to label Hezbollah (an Iranian proxy) a terror group. The same person who urged President Bush to offer Iran “direct, unconditional, and comprehensive talks.” The same person who called for establishing a U.S. diplomatic mission in Tehran. The same person who dismissed “a military strike against Iran” as “not a viable, feasible, responsible option.” The same person who wrote that a nuclear Iran might be tolerable because “sovereign nation-states possessing nuclear weapons capability (as opposed to stateless terrorist groups) will often respond with some degree of responsible, or at least sane, behavior.”

    I realize that Senator Hagel is now repudiating many of his past actions and statements. But this sudden and convenient transformation beggars belief. Hagel has not undergone an abrupt ideological makeover; he is just desperate to win Senate approval. It is a classic “confirmation conversion.”.....snip~

    The Case against Hagel - John Cornyn - National Review Online

    Looks like the Republican Whip in the Senate did just that. Thus once again.....showing the left doesn't even have a clue.

    hell, these are all compelling reasons to want someone of his intellect and independence at the helm of the DoD:
