Republican kabuki theater.
After schmoozing Kerry into the SoS post, some Pubbie’s pretend to grow a spine and question Hagel?
Why didn’t Cruz “get tough” with the man who lied to congress about his fellow soldiers in Vietnam?
yep - theater...
How they could possibly approve Kerry - He met with commies in paris during the war. He was still in the reserves at the time.
If that is not grounds for Senate rejection, what is?
(watch - hagel will get confirmed also.)
Why don’t you get your facts straight before you attack Cruz? Senator Cruz is NOT on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and actually voted against Kerry.
I don’t know if anyone has responded to your comment about Senator Cruz vis-a-vis John Kerry...if they have, excuse the redundancy.
Senator Cruz was on the committee at the hearings at which Hagel appeared, therefore he was able to question him and bring forward video evidence of his past misdeeds.
In the case of John Kerry, I don’t believe Cruz was on the committee that questioned Kerry, however Cruz was one of only THREE United States Senators to vote AGAINST Kerry when the roll was called.
He has been very critical of Kerry in explaining in interviews why he voted against him.
Kudos to Cruz.
Kerry was a shoe-in. Duh.
He has more money than . . . well, anyone. The position was purchased. We don’t have to like this but it’s what we have. Kerry is a disgrace, no doubt.
Plus, who else is OB oging to put at State? Someone with morals? Patriotism?
But this Hagel guy.
Did you see the video?
I’ve spoken with men more alert and coherent at one in the morning in a downtown bar.
You are a bomb thrower I see. Load up with facts before you launch next time.
Republican kabuki theater, you bet it is. But.. we are outnumbered in every flank. If we can stop the POS from being Sec of D. well take it. Ted Cruz is taking as much heat today as the hapless fool Hagel, such are the times we are living in. Just look at the apology fest the SF football player had to go on just for saying he doesnt want to take showers with fudge-packers. Off topic to be sure, but illustrates the insane times we are in.
