You're right. The unstated question was:

"Should your career not be ended by saying the wrong things here today, which country would you most like to....

That sure looks like Barney Frank sitting behind Hicks over his right shoulder, but it just has to be an unfortunate similarity.

LOL I saw that too. Maybe the old turd burglar shaved his head.

I see Michele Bachmann was there and for some reason Pete Hoekstra was also there.

OK. I guess I just assume something is a threat when someone says something unexpected like that,

In my personal experience, a question like that is the closest any Federal employee will ever get to an abject apology and public admission of government guilt.

But your instincts are correct.

It can also be a veiled threat.

Those men are the real profiles in courage - not the lying crooks in the administration.

Mr. Hicks strikes me as a man who can’t be bought, and trying will only make him mad.

I’m sure he doesn’t take it as such, and could giveash@t less what someone threatens to do to his career at this point.

Especially when the guy has been busted down to level entry after 22 years stellar service because he didnt go along with the talking points.

Emboldened corrupt lefties now do out in the open what they used to do in secret.

That female dog Democrat was completely off base. Was it a bribe? Was it a threat? I don’t know. I do know it was a complete waste of time. She could of asked a question that would bring light to the problem at hand, but she didn’t ... just like the grand parade of the Congressional Black Caucus during the hearing. I have never seen such a display of over paid, over valued illiterates in my life. It is enough to make a person a racist.

I got the impression she wanted him to pick ANTARCTICA.

Notice that she didn't bother asking him WHY he was job-hunting. She knew why.

Every one of the DEM committee members spent most of their time making STATEMENTS and only one asked questions that weren't self-serving and pointless in terms of 'solving the problems'.
