Here come da bus, here come da bus! Order in the Cabinet Room, here come da bus! And, Chuck Hagel is the latest Obama lover to be tossed under that bus by his President.
Just so we’re clear, we really didn’t like Hagel’s nomination to be Sec. Def. We thought he was a spineless, idiot, but he did have the appearance of a hard core anti-Semite going for him, and we’re pretty sure that’s why Obama nominated him.
Of course our Senior Senator, John McCain, was an enthusiastic supporter of Hagel’s nomination, and that’s more than enough for us to be opposed to him. McCain’s support was bought by Hagel’s service in Vietnam, which we applaud, but we never did figure out how that qualified him to be Sec. Def.
Anyway, the New York Times woke up this morning spinning the story.
Defense Secretaryhanded in his resignation on Monday, the first cabinet-level casualty of the collapse of ’s Democratic majority in the Senate and the struggles of his national security team to respond to an onslaught of global crises.
You can read the whole article, but to save you the trouble we’ll note that we’re pretty sure the author had been spending quality time with a crack pipe before he wrote the article. There’s lots of mealy-mouthed stuff about Hagel being a decorated combat vet (he was) and then a bunch of hot air about how the world has changed and Obama needs someone with different skills to address a new and dangerous world.
Oh, and you can expect a liberal, female, Democrat as his replacement. Hagel will be staying on until his replacement is approved. With any luck that will be February of 2017.
Make no mistake about it, aside from what Obama and his team of spinners will be saying, the world isn’t a more dangerous place because of Chuck Hagel. It’s a more dangerous place because of Mr. Hagel’s boss, Barack Obama.
We’re expecting a female nominee to go along with the President’s nomination of a female to replace Eric Holder. The Republicans are threatening to hold up all of his nominees over the executive amnesty thingy, and you can bet the President and his Party will be back to declaring the “Republican War on Women” if these two female nominees are held up.
We’d like to see someone in the Republican Leadership start talking about the real domestic “war” going on. That would be the “War on the American People” or the “War on the American Worker” that Obama and his Democratic Party have been waging for the past six years.
We’re not holding our breath.
