I do want an American Secretary of Defense to be an American Secretary of Defense. His first loyalty should be to us, the American people.

Has that become old-fashioned?

Hagel will forge a path to a National I.D. card system. He & his cronies will get richer from those cards.

I believe Pres. Osama has already picked Sen. John Kerry for SoS.

Doh!

Elections have consequences. America voted to ‘apply pressure’ on Israel, and Netanyahu will be happy to ‘moderate’ his political views to ‘accommodate US pressure’.

A person who goes out of his way to dissociate himself from Israel is an anti-Semite. And an anti-Semite is not an American.

Such a person would not have this country's best interests at heart, either.

America did not vote against Israel.

America voted for domestic handouts and wealth redistribution.

The fact that the grifter who promised the electorate free goodies also happens to hate Israel was not a factor that determined their voting choice.

Well, if the issue should arise again, I want and expect every American politician to make it as clear as he did that their first loyalties are to the United States. If you feel that being loyal to America first has some undesirable implications for any other country, so be it.

I’m not saying it is the End Times, but I am saying if it were the End Times, Hagel would be leading the DOD. Just like Hillary and Panetta are perfect actors for the End Times, Hagel is made for the part.

Obama and Hitlerly have surrounded Isreal with the Muslim Brotherhood. Hagel would happily advance that Islamic cause. So would Senator McStupid and his girlfriend Lindsay.

By the way, here is the oath that Senators take:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

Senators of the United States are by definition Senators of the United States, not Mexico, not Canada, not Russia, not Israel. There is just nothing controversial about what the man said. Or, at least there shouldn't be.

Well, it’s going to get really bad, when it’s the End Times. Really bad. Maybe even worse than this.

No Chuck, You’re just another anti-American.

So, you’ll fit right in this White House.

America did not vote against Israel.

America voted for the candidate whose party thrice denied God and Israel a place on their platform.

I suspect that as far as God is concerned that is all that matters.

Hagel, like a lot of politicians, loves to look at himself in the mirror because he’s so in love with himself.

Oh yes, much worse from what I understand of the Bible. Liberals have laid the groundwork for the worst to happen. It’s an envious, hate and rage machine the power to slaughter.

Obama should denounce the Michigan union violence and Jamie Foxx’s call for mass murder - “Kill all the white people.”
If he were serious about derailing the murderous rage his party has nurtured and inspired, he would denounce the Left’s violent actions and talk. But he doesn’t really mind blood...he just wants to make it so people can not defend themselves when his zombies ride.

Hagel is a Republican, This pick is to embarrass the party and keep the Jews in the democrat fold. It is a bad pick for the nation.

The issue never arose in the first place.

Hagel is disguising his animus against Israel by claiming that his animus is just American patriotism.

That's nonsense, and the last refuge of a scoundrel.

That's nonsense.

What Secretary of Defense, before he even starts his career in the role, begins by pointedly announcing that he will not have any partiality to one specific American ally?

What if he had said: "If I'm SecDef, America will come first - not South Korea!" or "If I'm SecDef, America will come first - not Poland!" or "If I'm SecDef, America will come first - not Colombia!"

No one would applaud, they would be bewildered by the ridiculous specificity of those non sequiturs and rightly wonder if that nominee had a soft spot for North Korean communism, or for Russian hypernationalism or for the Chavez regime.

You join a long list of those who suspect that they know the mind of God.

I suspect that you do not possess the knowledge you assure yourself of.

I suspect, unlike you, I do not know the mind of God.

I made no claim to actual knowledge, only to a suspicion, and that only based on how mild his documented responses were to the slightest transgression.

How did Moses earn 40 years of wandering in the desert only to die in sight of his goal agin?

He hit the rock with his staff, dinhe?
