GOP Opposition To Chuck Hagel For Defense Secretary

Government, Politics 0

I’m not endorsing Chuck Hagel, but I would like to point out that if Republicans strongly oppose Hagel’s nomination, you do have to wonder if he just might be the right guy for the job.

He’s profoundly wrong on a number of the most important national security issues that face our country today.

- Senator John Cornyn (R-TX)

This is an “in your face” nomination by the president to all of us who are supportive of Israel.

- Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

I have serious concerns about positions Senator Hagel has taken on a range of critical national security issues in recent years…

- Senator John McCain (R-AZ)

Well Senator McCain, I could say the same thing about you.

And I heard another Republican (sorry, don’t recall who) saying how Hagel left the Republican Party a long time ago. OK, and your point is? How is that supposed to be a negative? After all, it is a Democratic president doing the nominating here. You should just be happy that he chose a former Republican (in your view).

At every turn Republicans act like they own the place. They act like their opinion has greater weight. But Republicans, I hate to break it to ya, but Americans are tired of warmongering. We are in no mood for it. We have no desire to go to war with Iran. So take a seat and then try to do something constructive for a change.
