I know that our fine troops will carry on and carry this nation on their backs as they always have in spite of the politicians in Washington.
Its simply not possible to give them nobody for four years. We are dealing with imcompentent self interested politicians who's only interest is reelection..the country can be dammed..
I trust that a grunt and combat veteran will do the right thing for our troops far more than anybody Obama will nominate to replace him.....
I've noticed Obama always puts his best (as far as Conservatives may view it in retrospect) option out first then he plays politics with the GOP to get something/someone far more favorable to the left the second or third time around.
Obama is the POTUS for four more years. He won we (referring to Conservatives) lost.
Where were the folks opposing Kerry, no where to be found.. 97-3 give me a break...
The opposition to Hagel is simply the GOPe telling Conservatives how they want them to feel. They have decided this the the insiders political game of the month to sound like they are the big guys on campus and they are taking Conservatives on a ride yet again..
Cut through the political crap and see the reality here..as far as Obama is concerned Hagel is dispensable. His choice is someone who would never stand a chance of being confirmed the first go round. Hagel is there to plow the way for the real nominee.
You want to put a a real obstacle in O’s way then stop opposing Hagel. He's the best Conservatives can expect..
If Hagel took foreign money to keep a foreign enemy combatant in our White House, there is no way in heck that I would EVER vote to approve him.
If Benedict Arnold is the best that Obama can come up with, then I’d take him on in his game of “chicken” and do even more - I’d sue to have Joe Biden named as the person who can “act as President”, since Obama has “failed to qualify”. There’s no way he can qualify without a legally-established birth date, birth place, or parents. Obama is not qualified to “act as President” according to the 20th Amendment, and that means he can’t nominate ANYBODY for SecDef - or anything else.
