The Hagel thing has become such a circus and we all know the real reason why certain people are fighting against him so hard and it's not Benghazi. One would think those GOP senators would treat one of their own and a war hero with a little more respect, but they all knew that the people who line their pockets are not too pleased with the Hagel nomination and were watching that hearing. The most glaring examples of this were Graham and Cruz's questioning with Graham making me literally laugh out loud and Cruz looking particularly clueless. And now all the AM radio jagoffs who have shat on McCain and Graham for years for being "RINOs" are now lauding them as conservative heroes. God I hate having to agree with those guys on **** like gun rights.
And now his fires have gone out.
Hagel choice is similiar to the Tower bad choice...a Senator with a lot of enemies in the Senate clubhouse. Possibly the Senate getting out maneuvered again politicaly. Bring up a 2nd choice that's not liked...but at least Cheney/x isn't no Tower/Hagel....and everybody pats themselves on the back on really getting the best choice all along in Cheney/x. The x choice must be a real whopper given all the rhetoric divested in this as "unprecedented" and never has been done before...although to much of this spin and it may backfire.
