Obama: U.S. now has the defense secretary it needs
Politico ^ | 2/26/13 | DONOVAN SLACK

Posted on 02/26/2013 3:38:15 PM PST by Nachum

President Barack Obama said Tuesday that the nation will now have the defense secretary it needs.

"With the bipartisan confirmation of Chuck Hagel as our next Secretary of Defense, we will have the defense secretary our nation needs and the leader our troops deserve," he said in a statement. "From the moment he volunteered for military service in Vietnam, Chuck has devoted his life to keeping America secure and our armed forces strong. An American patriot who fought and bled for our country, he understands our sacred obligations to our service members, military families and veterans.

I predict that Hagel will do to DoD what Obama has already done to NASA.

In Dutch, 'hagel' means 'frozen rain' or 'shot' (as from a shotgun).

So I guess our relation with Israel is cooling off or is shot.

Rub our noses in it you Muslim POS.

Thnks Republicans who voted for this.
I expected no better when you put Kerry in as Secretary of State.

If Obama told you to vote for Schiller the Killer for Surgeon General you would have done it.

Sorry, I just read that only 4 Republicans voted for Hagel.
I assumed more did, when I posted # 9

Of course Bama calls that bi-partisan.

What a clown.

What could possibly go wrong?

"Who would enforce an imposed two state solution according to the recommendations signed off by Hagel? A “U.S.-led multinational force” which would be “under a UN mandate” and “feature American leadership of a NATO force supplemented by Jordanians, Egyptians and Israelis.” Jerusalem would have “a special security and administrative regime of its own.”

Paper tigers, McCain and Graham, for all their bluster in the confirmation committee and the news talk programs, ended up voting FOR Hagel.

They talk a tough game and fold when put to the test.

These four monkeys will be talking real tough in the coming weeks to divert attention from this betrayal. Did Barry offer them something they could not refuse, or did McConnell select them to take the heat this time to get this through for BO. This is why I am not on the RaPaul bandwagon. I have a feeling that his policies would run quite similar to his father’s. Actions speak louder than words.

Lindsey Graham needs to come out of the closet. I’m sure he is being blackmailed. He is gay. Do not know why the senile McCain is being blackmailed. Arizona PLEASE vote this surrender monkey out come next election.

Just wait until he gets John "Muslim Convert" Brennan as head of CIA. Then Obama will have a well-rounded pack of traitors to dismantle our country and betray our allies.

WWIII/CWII is visible on the horizon. Obama is counting on it.

Lindsey Graham needs to come out of the closet. I’m sure he is being blackmailed. He is gay...

A lot of Freepers believe this but none of them has ever come up with any evidence. Only accusations, such as the one you offer.

The man is in his 50s. Don't you think that at this point in his life if he were homosexual there would have been some evidence (i.e., former lovers speaking out, newspaper articles detailing something about his love life, and the such). But there aren't.

To be sure, Graham does not seem to be the "normal" guy. So, what else could explain it? There are possibilities, but I suppose you haven't thought of them.

Hammer meet nail. What “republicans” has the kenyan appointed? And really, 4 pub votes (rand paul shame on you) and he calls it bi-partisan. Meanwhile, Hagel guts the military, destroy alliances, builds up our enemy and the shtf and they say “see, it was the republican”
