More of the same - showboating. They want to make a show of standing for principle - and then what - lay down and roll over for the socialists and put their stamp of approval on the loser Hagel.
These repubs who support Hagel have chosen to ignore what's good for the country in order to play by the rules of the "good old boys" club.
I hope they stick to their guns (not a pun) and don't cave in. Brennan and Hagel have shady backgrounds, abandon their nominations and IMPEACH OBAMA!
So much for the 'Syrian' 'Rebels' - Iranian Guards Commander just killed in Syria.
Fact is - the so-called Syrian Rebels are a mix of various Islamist groups from every continent.
Welll war they say... I hope its like all the boots on the ground wars since Korea and last at least 10 years... Maybe sticking around to rebuild this Republic this time?
Wasn't there a snippet of a rumour that Ted Cruz has been working behind the scenes to stiffen GOP spines in regard to this vote?
I can't lay my hands on it - but I do recall having read something like that today ...
Sorry about that senior moment, didn't bookmark it ...
...and so they should filibuster. Impeachment, criminal charges would be more like the thing.
Maybe the GOp'ers should stop with the FOX News fluff for a while and read the real story behind Hagel.
"Senator Ted Cruz grilled Obama defense chief nominee Chuck Hagel over his controversial appearance on Al Jazeera, the Arab propaganda channel, during which the former Republican Senator had agreed with a viewer that the United States was a “bully” in global affairs. It has now been revealed that the government of Qatar, which owns Al Jazeera, was a major contributor to the Atlantic Council when Hagel was its chairman.
But Hagel also has an Al Jazeera connection through Georgetown University, where he is a professor, and which maintains a campus in Qatar."
"Chuck Hagel serves on the board of the Ploughshares Fund, another of the George Soros-funded organizations, and that it is a “partner organization” of the pro-Marxist Institute for Policy Studies.
In addition to his role as chairman of the Atlantic Council and a board member of the Ploughshares Fund, Hagel serves as a Distinguished Professor in the Practice of National Governance at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, which maintains campuses in Washington, D.C. and Qatar. Funding for the campus in Qatar comes from the Qatar Foundation, established by the ruling family."
Although Hagel distresses me, Brennan distresses me even more, since there is increased chatter that he has been a Muslim since the mid to late 1990s. Closet Muslim Zero would just love to have another America-hating anti-Semite elevated up from among the ranks. As I have said before: the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.
They both scare me to death. We have a Muslim President who has the Muslim Brotherhood over for dinner and cocktails, and his entire administration is crooked. We've been infiltrated folks....we need to wake up! It is his plan to ruin us. Obama hates this country and is hell bent to do us in. Now that he has been re-elected (still makes me nauseated to even say that) - he is on a fast track with a big ole smirk on his face while he's doing it.
Eventually with enough wheedling, the Republicans will give in.
If they let Benghazi become a non issue right before a Presidential election, what hope do we have?
The propagandist media arm of Zero, the Center of American Regress, labor unions, left-wing special interest groups, George Soros, community agitat...er...organizing groups, and others made sure that the issue was shelved before the election. If they are ever eliminated or made irrelevant in some way, perhaps the Democraps and a few Republicants will lose more elections to truly conservative individuals. What hope do we have? There is always hope conditions can change for the better, but presently there isn't any.
As evidenced perfectly by the debate and how it was followed up.
It's totally crazy, that the entire episode that developed from the debate, didn't take a different direction.
I'm certainly no Romney fan- but he was short changed in that turn of events. Granted he should have been better prepared for Obamas response but the aftermath/media follow thru was outrageous- everyone understood, yet no one with a platform cared or was concerned enough to stand up.
What's happening to the Republicans.?? They seem to have woken up. They must have been receiving a lot of Republican mail.
Whatever, it's a good sign and long overdo.
I send them mail quite a bit. I live in Illinois though, so..... :-( I even mail Durbin...glad it's an e-mail....wouldn't want to waste the stamp. He's a crook just like Blago and the rest of Chicago. I live in SouthWestern Illinois...quite a bit more conservative down here.
First, get an oversized Bagel for Hagel...and when he isn't looking, put it over his head, thereby immobilizing his arms. Rabbit punch him in the snout a few times, tie his ears in a knot, disrespect his eye bags, tell him to git, then kick him in the cottontail caboose and toss him in the brier patch.
It comes down to how much influence and infiltration of islam should be allowed in America. By the looks of current events in the rest of the world, I vote it`s time to CLEAN House !!!!
Thanks for Your Enthusiastic Support Sister !!! The muzbros are waking up daily to the news that more and more people are becoming aware of who they are, what they believe, and their plans for those of us who choose NOT to follow islam. Happy Valentine`s Day Mary !!!!
Saw this today, another General out.
About 1/2 way down the above is this reported by none other than NPR (yeah from June 2012 but I didn't know this): FBI tracking 100 islamic extremists in military http://www.npr.org/2012/06/25/155710570/fbi-checking-100-suspected-extremists-in-military
HOT READ DLUX !!! Thank You OTD... OLDEST TRICK in the stinkin` book: Set the mark up with a HOT Chick !! B.O. & his slug buds are fallin` all over themselves how they`re settin` up so many in the CoC from the top down. That`s O.K. `cause we`re Onto their Game now !!! THANKS AGAIN, I saved link to Favs for more study....
I personally think having a former Republican Senator from Nebraska lead the DOD would result in less Islamic infiltration and a cleaning of the house.
Sorry, but I feel This guy is NO friend of our Troops. And it would be VERY hard to convince me otherwise....
Let me do a little more research before I respond on that military record. The thought of another John Kerry-like vet is disturbing. I Can say now, this Hagel process has brought out questionable muzzbro connections that are the essence of my personal concern. Last time I checked, the muzbro + our Troops = Not friends....
A brave American that served in the infantry in Vietnam and earned two purple hearts is not a friend of our Troops? Are we living in an alternate reality bizarro world?
Islam is not compatible with the US Constitution...nor is Obama for that matter. Obama is more ideologically suitable to be a successor to Chaves or Castro...or really, Sukarno.
Hagel should just withdraw. Even if he does eventually get confirmed, he will be so damaged politically that he could end up like another failed Defense Secretary, Les Aspen. And if anything, ANYTHING, goes wrong militarily anywhere in the world, you can be sure Obama is going to throw Hagel under the bus, and fast, just like Clinton did to Les Aspen, forcing him to resign after the Somalia disaster. If Obama were smart instead of fanatic liberal idealogue, he would cut his losses and get somebody else. But if Obama wants Hagel so badly and Hagel is one of the worst liberals out there, then it tells you the type of people Obama wants around him. I hope the Senate Republicans stand tall and win this fight. Hagel would be a disaster at the Pentagon, and I think more and more Senators are finally beginning to see that.
