Skip to comments.APNewsBreak: Hagel backing Pa.'s Sestak for Senate (Massive RINO barf alert)
Posted on 08/23/2010 9:02:30 AM PDT by St. Louis Conservative
HARRISBURG, Pa. Former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel a Republican is throwing his support behind Democrat Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania's U.S. Senate race.
Hagel told The Associated Press on Monday that Sestak has demonstrated during his two terms in Congress that he puts what's best for the country before the interests of his party. He said Sestak's courage and integrity as a legislator are qualities the nation needs more of.
He refused to comment on the candidacy of Sestak's opponent, Republican Pat Toomey, a former congressman.
The men are seeking the seat long held by Sen. Arlen Specter, a Republican-turned-Democrat whom Sestak beat in the primary.

GOOD F'ING RIDDENCE CHUCK!!
Pitiful. Just pitiful.
Yeah, Nobody Hagel’s endorsement will change a lot of votes...not.
Who is Chuck Hagel and why does anyone care what he says???? LOL Bet the folks in Nebraska don’t even remember him!!!
That carpetbagging jackass was never a Nebraskan, let alone a Republican.
I’m so glad we’re rid of him.
The Senate really needs some house cleaning.
Ruling class Hagel is supporting ruling class Sestak.
Where is the surprise?
Yes, sure, yes, it makes me furious. But I’m not surprised.
Angelo Codevilla was an optimist.
He wants to be Gates’ successor at Defense.
Hagel likes Sestak because Sestak is anti-Israel.
Stand up Chuck (for your party) you dick head.
I liked it that way.
Hagel’s endorsement means absolutely nothing in PA. The only thing this proves is that there is an element within the Republican Party which is deceptive and dangerous (just like the Left) to our Country.
As with Charlie Crist we now know Hagels’ true colors!!!!!
It seems to me that, in such a vote-the-bums-out mood as the nation is in at the moment, the "endorsement" of an "insider" such as Hagel is at best, neutral, and at worst, a negative for the one being endorsed.
Kind of like Tammy Faye Bakker endorsing Revlon, or Michael Moore endorsing Weight-Watchers.
Is that SOB F’in crazy???
I don’t see how turdballs like Hagel can take Rep $’s and then bite the hand that fed ‘em. These people need to be purged from the Rep party if that party is to have any legitimacy amongst the base.
My guess is that if Pennsylvania wanted to hear from a traitorous RINO, they would have voted for Arlen Sphincter to run against Toomey. Upchuck Hagel won’t make any more difference in this race than a tree falling in the woods.
The establishment GOP prefers Statism to Constitutional government, and will not likely repeal one iota of Obama's agenda to date.
We’ve snuffed these clowns out.....now the trick is to keep them out. Permanently.
Somebody must have some dirty pictures of somebody.
I remember him well.
Perhaps he will cry at some rallies for Sestak to get him votes.
The difference between a RINO and a Democrat is the name tag.
So, six years ago Toomey got borked by Jorge Arbusto and Karl Rove and now by Hagel.
Gotta love the big government, statist Republicans.
Ever wonder why the Welfare State never gets rolled back when the Elephants are in control?
Hagel is a wacked out piece of garbage and always was.
How is it that such a deeply conservative state like Nebraska elects stab-em-in-the-back type senators? Nebraskans deserve sooo much better. RINO’s are such vindictive beeches on their way out.
Hagel is no more a republican than Mt. McKinley is a throw pillow.
Why do I always grin and picture a kilt when I see this line??...
Most of the Pennsylvanians (Steeler fans) I know can’t even locate Pennsylvania on a U.S. map.
And Bob Dole just gave Charlie Crist $1000...
Yeah, Nobody Hagels endorsement will change a lot of votes...not.
This was my very thought as well! I had to actually think of who Hagel was for a moment ;-)
Looks like another RINO in the mold of Specter trying to remain relevant.
I’m puzzled. What’s Hagel’s angle here? Does he live in Pennsylvania now? Is he looking to re-launch his political career as an Independent or a Democrat this time?
No wonder the repubs ratings are in the toilet along with the dems.
hagel is no RINO. He is a two-faced lying RAT in Pub clothing. He is an impostor AND a through and through RAT.
I posted this back in August 2008 when BHO was giving his famous speech in Germany during his campaign. He had Senators Reed and Hagel as foreign policy advisers.
“Obama prepares thoroughly for the big occasions. He is almost always well-briefed, and he was traveling in sharp company with Sens. Jack Reed and Chuck Hagel so you knew he would be thoroughly ready for these meetings. The chance of a major screw-up was minimal.
Reed and Hagel. The only things remotely sharp about these guys are the knives they use to stab their constituents in the back.”
Never truer words were spoken.
Chuck Hagel, Chuck Hagel, let me think....Oh yes....I remember Chuck Hagel.
So he wants attention AGAIN, eh? Guess that Hussein cabinet position didn’t work out for him, eh? :)
This is not news.
Hagel = Worthless.
Now Blooming Idiot (Bloomberg) has endorsed Sestak. Another endorsement that will matter to no one.
Fortunately Hagel the nitwit is no longer in the Senate. He was replaced with a REAL conservative, Mike Johanns.
Like eveything else involving politicians in general and libs specific, follow the money. Chuckie-poo thinks he can slide under somewhere and grab some of all the nobama stash floating about.
