As if the Emperor’s going to listen to the pleadings of any of his underlings...
The next thing to do is to kill Brennan's nomination on the grounds of his secret (and thus ILLEGAL) wars in Libya and Syria being the cause of the disaster in Benghazi. We simply must expose the motive for the passive murder of an American ambassador directly into the White House.
I watched the show this morning. Woodward also confirmed that it was Bronco Bama who dreamed up the sequester idea.
At the same time, John McCain was on Press the Meat assuring David Gregory that Hagel would be confirmed as soon as they all got back from recess.
Some people don’t have the decency to know when they’re not wanted (Hagel), and others don’t have the intelligence and honor and dignity to admit when they’re so wrong (Obama).
The vote of the Jewish Democratic Senators will be a watershed event and of great interest to future historians.
I’m worried that McCain and Graham will fold after making noises and vote for cloture along with a few other liberal Republicans. The Rats will be told to get in line by the White House and they will follow orders. This will rise or fall on the Republicans not folding and agreeing to some deal that will allow a floor vote.
The Hagel nomination was done out of pure spite. Hellvua way to manage a country.
The petulant child in the White House is throwing a never ending, slow motion temper tantrum.
He needs to learn what happens to bad little boys.
Hagel appears to be a mental midget devoid of ethics and a person who resents anyone smarter than him which includes at least more than half of the population. Hagel is the poster child for evidence that intelligence is not required to be successful and that it can be done on the basis of other factors. Those factors don’t appear to require being a “people person” either.
Hagel, if approved, will only surround himself with people less intelligent than he is and will punish anyone who is not in that category. This is completely in line with obastard’s plans to destroy from within. McLame is a willing accomplice to the plan.
That’s not what HotAir is saying. They have Woodward saying that senators are calling the WH and asking IF they are withdrawing Hagel’s name. HotAir is not saying that the Dems are demanding or even asking for Hagel’s withdrawal.
The dems having nothing to worry about, republicans will confirm hagel as soon as they return, guaranteed.
Oye veh, this is getting complicated.
Hagel is just that; more. . and worse.
Snap out of it; McCain; et al Repubs who think this may as well 'go down'; and that they have been judicious - enough - in protesting. Watching our Constitution being trampled is not an option. And when a President is the one doing it; then yes; better well; critique those who would aid and abet. . .Obama; already, has enough on the 'inside', doing just that.
Repiblicans are beginning to back peddle on Hagel. They are going to let him go through because they learned the altenative waiting in the wings (Female Undersecretary) would be a disaster for the Military. Hagel is the lesser of the evils.
