Another ABO argument... your cat was not a grunt and combat veteran. I know the GOP thinks being against anything Obama is for a good strategy but it did not work out so well in the last electioin...if conservatives are to win they must be prepared to come up with viable alternatives and stop following the failed strategy of the Republicans...
OK. Tom Osborn. Paul Vallely. Marcus Luttrell.
There are a lot of people who could do the job, with advisors who are trustworthy. But Obama is not going to nominate any of those people. His criteria for which leaders get the axe is whether they are willing to order fire against Americans, because that is the next war Obama will have.
IOW, the only “viable alternatives” are people who will be puppets to the communist-Islamist alliance which put Obama in power. There is a very real question of whether foreign money (the communist and Islamist alliance headed by George Soros) was paid to Hagel to flip votes for Obama in critical precincts, in order to keep Obama in power - and whether the SecDef position was the payout for Hagel having his voting machine and tabulation company steal the election for Obama.

At this point the best we can do is totally stall Obama’s appointments, although that probably won’t make any difference if the #2 guy is his puppet already, since #2 would be in charge if there’s no #1 who’s been confirmed. The military is being purged of its patriots, in leadership positions and among the battle-tested heroes.
Here’s an article about Ohio: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11/06/ohio_voting_machines_backdoor/
Florida’s largest counties used
Here is a list of states where ES&S machines/tabulation software were used (found at http://votingmachines.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=000276 ):
“The ES&S iVotronic is a DRE machine with a touch screen interface and VVPAT capability. In the 2012 elections, the iVotronic was used statewide in SC and in some districts in 17 states and DC (AR, CO, FL, IN, KS, KY, MO, MS, NC, NJ, OH, PA, TN, TX, VA, WV, and WI).”
I haven’t read the whole thing, but there is a report of an investigation that threatened to decertify ES&S machines because they don’t protect integrity of the system: http://www.eac.gov/assets/1/Documents/Formal_Investigation_ESS_Unity_3200_FINAL_12.20.11.pdf
Here are some complaints regarding ES&S in the 2008 election: http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2008/10/voting-machine/
