The man has a solid constitution but he looks worn down and out of it from what he looked like in 2007 when last in the public eye. He looks unhealthy with huge bags under his eyes. Like the male version of Hillary.
The man was in combat in Vietnam and has an amazing growing up tough life story with an abusive alcoholic father. Not that I like his anti_Israel attitude and his backstabbing GW Bush
I agree...He looked bad and sounded bad, the further into the session the worse it got. I was unaware of his father but was wondering if he has a drinking problem though have never read that he has.
I just can’t imagine him wanting to take a demanding job like SECDEF from the way he was today.
I almost want Hagel to get through just to see Jennifer Rubin break down in tears. Rubin is a pseudo-conservative blogger in the Washington Post who hates Hagel and accuses him of being anti-semitic. Although a disgusting RINO, he is certainly not that. Rubin totally trashes the Tea Party and despises Rick Santorum and social conservatives who accurately point out the moral cesspool America has become.
The Washington Post labels Rubin a conservative just like David Brooks is the supposed conservative in the New York Times.
Look--everybody has a sob story. At some point he has to be held accountable for what he has done and said himself, and what he might do in the future. This is a Senate hearing, not the f*ing Oprah show.
This assclown endorsed Ubanga over his old friend McCain in 2008.
That’s some real character right there, real loyalty, real intelligence...
Good riddance to Hagel.
