Chuck Hagel (RINO) Set to Endorse Kerrey
Omaha World Herald ^ | Oct. 31, 2012 | Robynn Tysver

Posted on 10/31/2012 7:43:46 PM PDT by Mean Daddy

Republican Chuck Hagel is going to endorse Democrat Bob Kerrey.

That's the word from the Kerrey camp this evening, as they prepare to make a "major" announcement tomorrow.

A spokesman with Kerrey's campaign says Hagel – a former Nebraska U.S. Senator and a Republican – will back Kerrey in his race against Republican Deb Fischer.

Hagel's endorsement comes as polls have shown the race between Kerrey and Fischer tightening down the home stretch.

Hagel's backing could go a long way with independents. And, it clearly underscores Kerrey's contention that he is the person in the race who can win Republican and Democratic support.

If Kerrey is such a conservative, why the h*ll is he a registered Demorat and consistently votes liberal policies?

Gotta keep that senate in democrat hands so the republicans won’t have to act on any of those big promises they’ve made.

I’ve always suspected Hagel was a fraud conservative.

This is just the icing on the cake, in a year where we need to get the Senate to keep a check on both Obama or Romney.

Chuck “obammer” Hagel

I can’t imagine that this endorsement means a whole lot at this point. If he would have done it earlier, it might have helped bring Kerrey a win.

Thanks, Chuck! Glad you are out of the Senate you miserable, back-stabbing SOB!

Perfect. That is why I call it the corrupt "Two-Party Cartel".

I hope the voters will see this for what it is—vindictive, self-centered nastiness.

I’ve said all along that they GOP didn’t intend to take it all. If they did they would have to make some bold moves and would then be left with no threats to hold over us for the next election cycle.

Personally, I think we need to dump the 17th amendment and put the states back in firm control of the senate.

Does Kerry support repeal Obamacare?

I know Hagel served with honor like a lot of people did. He exploited it and was rewarded for it. A lot of guys didn’t make it back. I don’t have to like him and his endorsement of Kerrey makes me dislike Kerrey more. Come on , Nebraska. Do it right. I remember when Kerrey was a hold-out but finally gave in to Clinton and provided the vote he needed to increase taxes. He didn’t do it because he thought it was in the best interest of the country. He did it because Clinton practically cried and begged. I wish these people would go away. They keep crawling out of the woodwork.

I just think it’s interesting that he has to align himself with Republicans and not Democrats!! Why isn’t he a registered Republican? Why isn’t Obama in Omaha stumping for him?

Chuck Hagel is a self-described Republican, the same way male child molesters are self-described heterosexuals. Thanks Mean Daddy.

Kerrey is only down 3 points, it could mean the difference.

When the most positive thing about your campaign is getting an endorsement from a PhonyCon RINO....you are probably going to lose

Obama Appoints Another Israel-Hating Adviser: Chuck Hagel
NJDC/The Lid ^ | 10/28/09 | The Lid
Posted on October 28, 2009 1:45:31 PM EDT by Shellybenoit

President Obama is adding to his anti-Jew crew. Former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel has been named co-chair of President’s Intelligence Advisory Board. Hagel will be charged with overseeing the work of the intelligence agencies for the president and investigating violations of law by the clandestine community. Hagel joins Anti-Israel appointees such as Samantha Power and General Jones on the President’s “anti-Jew” crew.

Steve Clemons, foreign policy head of George Soros’ New America Foundation, announced Hagel’s move at the Tuesday evening gala dinner hosted by the Anti-Israel organization J Street as part of their first annual conference.

How Anti-Israel is Chuck Hagel? Well, don’t take my word for it, in an attempt to be bi-partisan below is what the the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC), said about Sen. Hagel’s lousy record on Israel last year:....

Interesting job, especially in light of Benghazi. I’ve seen Hagel’s name on a few boards which would raise the eyebrow of those who think he’s a republican.

The word I get from friends in Nebraska who are very well connected in the party is that Fisher is actually polling even better than that.

We may have the same friends. That’s the word I’m getting too. I’m hearing that Deb is perfect for these times. Nebraska’s economy is doing great so they are serious about who represents them in Washington.

No surprise. Didn’t Hagel also endorse Obama in 2008?

Chuck Hagel can rot.

Republicans were loyal to the clown for years but he only seemed to care about himself. The clown is just doing what he can to keep the senate in the hands of the democrats. This means, that if obama wins, obama will be able to plug the supreme court for another 4 years. That branch of government will be under control of liberal dirtbags.

ehhhhh....you better rethink that. OWH poll are notorious wrong of the years.

The Pharos survey touted by Kerrey has a few “red flags”

That’s a garbage liberal media poll. Here is an internal poll released by Fischer:

“LINCOLN, Nebraska, October 27, 2012 - The Deb Fischer for U.S. Senate campaign released an internal poll today showing Deb Fischer with a commanding 55%-39% lead over Bob Kerrey.”

Kerrey is Nebraska toast.

I hope you are right. Unfortunately over the years here I have seen some posters say “that poll is liberal trash” and that poll ends up being dead on right. Angle, O’Donnell, etc, races come to mind in 2010.

Agreed. Incidentally, I hope you’re not implying I am talking trash, but rather the campaigns.

I’m a nervous nellie, seen too many supposed victories over the years not turn to fruition. It still burns me beyond belief we blew it so bad and Harry F’ing Reid is still in power. Unbelievable.

I love when people run to a few defeats such as Angle and O'Donnell to justify ignoring the facts.

Angle was running against a sitting majority leader in a Blue State.

O'Donnell was running in a heavily Blue State.

Nebraska is a conservative State.

How about putting some context into your thinkking.

They're "moderates".

They're the ones who worry that a conservative can't win. They spew words like "purist" and accuse conservatives of costing us seats. The reality is that they are the true purists. They hate conservatives and want nothing more than to reach across the aisle and will think nothing of voting for the democrat over a conservative.

Moderates are nothing but lying manipulative bottom feeding scum.

You miss the point, I was referencing that many people here said to ignore those polls and they were wrong back then.

I hope they are right now, but let’s also not forget that Kerrey WAS their Senator for a long time, despite Nebraska being a conservative state. That context also needs to be considered. Chuck Hagel, ALSO, was their Senator for a long time.

I think there were some people ignoring the polls but not many.

Both Angle and O'Donnell were longshots.

Kerry is old news, as is Hagel.

Nebraska hates Obamacare and want it ended.
