The Senate is embroiled in another dog fight this week. For the first time in American history, it appears we will have a filibuster of a Presidential nominee for Secretary of Defense.
The full Senate is expected to vote on the nomination of Chuck Hagel this Friday. Democrats are claiming to have enough votes to confirm Hagel, but Republicans are planning to block the vote with a filibuster. The filibuster is being led by Republican Senator James Inhofe from Oklahoma and is supported by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina along with other Republican senators.
Republicans have raised serious national security concerns about Hagel, including questions about his financial support from radical foreign groups plus comments Hagel made regarding Israel, Iran, Iraq, and nuclear weapons. However, according to Evangelist Pat Robertson, no one in the Senate has raised any of the most important questions yet. He claims they are all missing the biggest problems with the Hagel nomination.

Really strange to see Republicans turning on one of their own.
Hagel is either a genuine POS or doesn’t play well with his little friends.
Welcome to FR!
Hagel is a Republican like Madonna is a Catholic.
You could say that about Biden, Pelosi ,and Sebelius.
Sebelius makes me gag just to look at her.
In my fantasy world, a filibuster would be done on the floor in person, like in the olden days, not simply deemed to be happening like that old Star Trek episode where they fought the war by computer.
I believe that’s a universal, involuntary response!
Southern man don’t need him around anyhow...
Pat Robertson arguing with Chuck Hagel is kind of like a cafeteria food fight down at the ol’ Funny Farm...
Did Pat say God told him which things disqualified Hagel?
Has Hagel been a RAT infil-traitor all along?
