WASHINGTON — Nebraska Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel said his party’s vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin, lacks foreign policy experience and called it a “stretch” to say she’s qualified to be president. “She doesn’t have any foreign policy credentials,” Hagel said in an interview published Thursday by the Omaha World-Herald....

Warren Buffett opposes the war in Iraq and backs Obama. That’s all one really needs to know about Hagel’s spiral into the deck over the last year-and-a-half.

Hagel’s already announced his retirement from the Senate. Look for him to cash out into some quasi-academic sinecure underwritten by Buffett or Kiewit, similar to the way Bob Kerry was bought out before him.

If Obama (blessed be his name) is elected, there is talk of him being the Secretary of Defense.

Interesting, Hagel is a “GOP Senator” when it serves the Media’s purpose.

what I can’t understand is whats the big deal with being qualified in foreign policy,,she would be working for the USA,and what a persons character is,stands up anywhere in the world,besides I bet the foreign leaders are lining up already to meet with Sarah,and as far as ordinary people,they will flock to see her no doubt.

Chuckie the RINO is a sexist Obamanoid. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a stretch to say his guy is qualified to be the JUNIOR Senator from Illinois.

Tell us oh ‘Great Stone Face’, as a senator representing a huge farm state,(all that wheat), why does a loaf of bread cost almost $3.00.Are you qualified, prepared,and informed enough to answer and serve in the senate one more day?

"“She doesn’t have any foreign policy credentials,” Hagel said"

Neither did Bill Clinton, George W Bush, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, FDR,, Cal Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt or Abraham Lincoln.

I know I'm leaving out a few, but even if I listed them, Chuck wouldn't get it. He's too dumb to be a Senator, let alone a VP.

Oh yeah.

I take profound thoughts from a RINO.

He better enjoy it while he can...

The Pitbull Extermination Service is headed for DC, and the rats (of both parties) better start packing.

I usually go out of my way not to correct fellow Freepers, but I can't resist this time.

You misheard.
That should be Secretary of Da Fence!

I’ll take John Bolton’s opinion over Hagel any day.

John Bolton has met with Palin. He has every confidence in her.

Bolton said [paraphrasing]...they talked about missle defense, etc. and she was very knowledgeable and she is a ‘quick study’. He was very impressed.

Awww, it’s Al Jazeera’s best riend speaking again.

Funny thing about Hagel. he should be Mccain’s best friend, considering they are both made of the same material with their obstruction of conservatism in the past. Except Chuckie is on Al Jazeerza’s side, so the two are not close.

Isn’t Chuck’s time in the Senate about up?

Memo to Chucky Hagel: Governor Sarah Palin has more qualifications in her pinky than you do in your whole no-count, low-down RINO body!
