"Chuck Hagel is the Neoconservatives' worst nightmare. A decorated combat veteran who disdains promiscuous war-making. A conservative Republican who rejects a foreign policy of wandering the globe bombing, invading, and occupying other nations. A supporter of Israel who won't subcontract his judgment to the demands of Israel's Likud Party. No wonder the usual suspects responded in the usual way. By calling Hagel an anti-Semite." Bandow
Been there, done that, experienced that...
Hagel is a good man who thinks of soldiers as "his people." He remembers that he is an American, first, last and always.
Now, the gay people are against him as they march towards their goal of absolute equality in marriage and all other "rights."
Can there be any doubt that BHO will abandon the idea of nominating Hagel? The president probably doesn't want the distraction of a fight in the senate. He is fully occupied with joining in the national hysteria over guns. pl
