White House Readying Hagel Replacement
Big Hairy News ^ | February 1, 2013 | Scooter Van Neuter

Posted on 02/01/2013 7:01:56 PM PST by WXRGina

WASHINGTON (BHN) - In the wake of Chuck Hagel's disastrous performance Thursday in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee, sources in the White House say President Obama is preparing a replacement nominee.

"It's obvious Hagel's toast, so the President is preparing another nominee based on the same criteria he used to pick Chuck Hagel," said the source. "The new nominee for Defense Department head will be a rubber dog toy."

Upon hearing news of the replacement, Sen. Inhofe remarked, "Sounds like Bo picked this one - it's definitely an improvement over the last guy."

You can be certain whomever 0 picks next will still be some controversial anti-American leftist completely unsuitable for the position.
That has been his MO so far.

Yeah, and I think they were just giddy to nominate a “Republican” for the post—as an inside joke of sorts.

I keep expecting him to pick Jane Fonda next, so he can defuse the charge that all his recent picks have been men.

Under the bus ya go, Hagel.

I loved hearing in the local Obama buttlicking media that Hagel was “likely to be confirmed”....

never EVER reporting the anti-Jewish crap Hagel spewed.

Hey, now, they sucked it up for Hanoi John F'n Kerry!

After that fait accompli performance, who wouldn't think they'd roll over for another one from among the Senate elites?

Don’t be a bit surprised if suddenly and shockingly - Hagel gets the votes and wins the nomination - with help from the Judenrat GOP leadership.

Don’t discount Psy-Ops here - we’re dealing with a regime at war with what is left of America.

All is fair in their war.

The dog toy is just a ploy. But only half-jokingly.

I dunno. Obama’s first debate performance was pretty bad, but here we are...

I've been shouting that from the rooftops for a while now. We're in such big trouble--more than we can imagine (well, maybe not more than WE can imagine, but you know what I mean).

Given that Kerry is, at best, a traitor, would you prefer to have him voting in the Senate or wasting his life in State Department.

Seems to me that's an easy question to answer ~ now, about Hagel, I imagine his replacement is getting his shock treatments out of the way now.

Hagel rhymes with bagel,
as in toasted bagel,

Never, NEVER doubt the WhiteyHut isn’t considering her or very similar, maybe Moochelle. Nobama is damn pouty and we can expect to get the bird for sure.

So how many farts has fuBarACK nominated then un-nominated over the years? Has any body been keeping a count?

I’m thinking Hagel was a set-up. His performance was so bad that it had to be intentional. Now obama can nominate someone even worse than Hagel. The wimpy Senate RINO’s will be afraid to challenge barry’s second nomination.

Difference is, Kerry is was treated with great deference, nobody truly went at him. Hagel has made some enemies and several senators were ready to expose his severe weaknesses, which they did. It was not pretty, in fact, it was extremely ugly.

The best thing the Dems can do now is pressure Hagel and his WH fans that he needs to pull his own nomination so another pick can be made.

IOW, don’t put them in a position to choose between voting against Hagel vs. voting for Obama’s pick. They don’t like, and deeply resent, being put there.

"Colin Powell"

Good guess! But does he hate Israel and love Islamofascism? That seems to be the litmus test.
