Chuck Hagel mess
« on: February 16, 2013, 11:45:31 AM »
Just cause good things come in 3's (though obviously my off topic threads don't please everyone)....

What to think of this Chuck Hagel mess? First we're supposed to hate him for his homophobic past. And we're strange bedfellows with the neocons.

Now we're supposed to resent the neocons stalling his nomination, which is screwing Obama...

It seems like the stupid GOP has nevertheless managed to make Obama look quite blundering... First Rice. Now Hagel...

Obama didn't have to follow precedent and pick a Republican, did he?  And thus Hagel.  Damaged goods from the get go.

Actually it's not any of the reasons you mention. Here's a more "sensible" take on the effort to derail Hagel.

I liked Hagel, when he wasn't afraid to take on his own party during Iraq.  I do wonder why the president couldn't find a democrat.  It seems accepted that the Defense Secretary must be a republican. 

John McCain admitted this is payback for going against the party.  Our troops don't have a leader in place, because of political payback.  I guess he is sending a message to any repub thinking about talking smack about the party.
