What an absolute fool.
His Senate hearing today was a complete embarrassment for himself and Obama.
To think the POTUS chose this buffoon to lead the world's largest military at this time in history is mind-boggling.
The clueless stick together.
but guys, it's so much easier to come back to the rest of the world instead of leading it.
A Democratic senator was quoted as saying "it obvious that Hagel isn't attending the next Mensa meeting."
Good grief. Listening to Hagel I'm terrified the damage he'll do in 4 years as Sec. of Defense. Obama picked him because he was a RINO (so he could claim he was working across the aisle) & for his hatred of Israel.
Can someone please beg Bob Gates to come back? That man knows what he is doing & is trusted by both parties to do the right thing for the country (something any person should have if applying for the position).
Somewhere along the lines people have forgot the nature of this job. It's not about being a political hack for one party or the other. It's about running the military & defending the USA. Being a vet doesn't qualify one for this job and clearly Hagel has no business being in charge.
I'm truly hoping he won't be approved & Obama will be forced to go to option #2. I wonder which socialist, communist or Chicago buddy would be next? I guess it could get worse.

I did have to laugh when Rubio said we need more ships. There are no naval stations in Florida- right?
Seriously the weakening of our over extended military is scary. I know we need the additional tax revenue to fatten the pockets of the big insurance companies that Obama caters to, but they too will be hurt when those that hate America bring us down and that will happen if we are ill prepared.

Obama doesn't care as long as the community gets organized. If it wasn't for black people and poor people, Barry wouldn't know what to do with himself.
I could not agree more.
It is good to see Hegel for Secretary of Defense. He was in the military and had the good judgement to say no to Dubya's war.
I suppose you guys are still fans of the Iraq debacle and still hoping for wmd's to be discovered in Iraq?
I much prefer a policy of letting the Middle East get fucked up beyond all help while killing Americans with drones without due process.
A couple things:
You obviously did not see his Senate confirmation hearings. Even the Dems cringed at his performance.
And, if you are going to praise someone, please know how to spell their name correctly.
