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.
My point of view is not shared by the majority either
The way forward, I think, is to fill the cracks is the majority view with “ideas.” The GOP who claim to speak for Conservatives have replaced Ideas with politics.
Your issue is not with Hagel its with the GOP, again I refer you to the 97-3 vote for Kerry..
In a perfect world Hagel would not be my choice. In the inperfect world we live in he is the best choice...
