One of my better rants. Be an old fashioned penpal with your Congressional delegation.

The Obamedia is reporting that they have been assured that the GOP will not block the nomination of Hagel next week. After all, this post is too important to be made “a political football.”

Really? Someone should have told the Democrats that when John Tower was denied the post of Secretary of Defense because he was called a “womanizer” and drank too much. One of his chief accusers was Ted Kennedy!

Any Republican who votes for this lousy nominee needs to be replaced.

The GOP having staved off cloture yesterday, seems to think it’s all over and will roll over and play dead, so both Hagel and Brennan will be part of the dictatorship soon.

Well done. Too bad your logical concerns for America will fall on deaf ears.
I’m rather hoping I, too, will become deaf soon so the sound of the coming gunfire will be a bit less bothersome.

Brennan reminds me of one of these bumbling fools who got a low level job in the government 30 years ago. He was then what his countenance reveals him to be.....arrogant and stupid. He was always given jobs that were those, even if he screwed them up, would cause no harm to life or property.

Being a govt "employee" he could not be fired, so over time he gained some seniority, thus a little power, although he was still arrogant and stupid.

So we arrive at this day..Brennan is more arrogant and just as stupid as when he was a mere "child" in the bowels of whatever agency he worked in 30 years ago.

He can be arrogant in his job, or he can be stupid in his job, but being both at the same time will do serious harm to the CIA.

If by some miracle, he gets confirmed, we would hope that there will remain a core of mid-level competent people at the CIA who will tactfully circumvent Brennan's stupidity.

Dear Senator Rubio:

I am writing you to make you aware that “Hagel” is not a Spanish name, hence, you need not give him amnesty. Nor vote for his nomination as Sec of Defense

Can’t the repubs technically hold the Senate open instead of a recess? Avoid the inevitable Recess Appointment that will surely occur if Hagel isn’t approved before then.
IIRC the dims pulled that on Bush.
