When watching Chuck Hagel being eviscerated by John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz just remember that we could have been spared from this sorry spectacle if not for the hubris of President Obama.
But no!!! Obama just had to foist Hagel upon us. He did so for three reasons. First, to give Israel yet another thumb to the eye. Second, to give comfort to Iran that we will not stop them from going nuclear and, above all else, to be a rubber stamp for Obama’s gutting of our military.
The problem, as it turns out, is that Hagel can’t string two sentences together. He’s no Hillary who can ask the Senate with a straight face, “What difference does it make?”
What happened today is a direct consequence of President Obama’s poor judgment. If the Senate doesn’t reject Hagel then they too will be guilty of poor judgment.
