All Obama nominees are severely flawed. ESPECIALLY Hagel.
I fail to see how Chuck Hagel is any worse than Hillary Clinton or John Kerry, both of whom were confirmed without so much as a peep of protest.
Chuck Hagel obviously isn't anybody's ideal choice, but the bottom line is that nobody Obama selects for any cabinet post is going to be. So why is there so much opposition to Hagel when people who are worse than him on many issues breezed right through?
His opponents should be consistent. Either fight all of Obama's appointments tooth and nail, or, if you let somebody like Hillary through, call it a foregone conclusion and let them all through. Otherwise, it looks as though Hagel's GOP opponents are acting on a personal grudge instead of on principle.
“All Obama nominees are severely flawed. ESPECIALLY Hagel.”
owebama doesn’t want anyone in his cabinet who will outshine him. He is the most flawed pResident in history so he’s got to come up with losers like hagel, brennan, kerry, etc. who are worse than he is. He really has to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find them.
