    Hagel fails to beat filibuster on day of more troubling revelations

    Hagel fails to beat filibuster on day of more troubling revelations

    The Washington Free Beacon reported today about a speech Hagel gave in 2007 — as reported at the time by one of his supporters — that the State Department had become an “adjunct” to the Israeli Foreign Ministry.

    Hagel supporters are fuming, but he was a bad selection.  It’s not over, they can bring it up for another vote, but it’s time for this divisive and bad choice to step aside.

    Next!

    The left/democRats are starting to remind me of the Philippine hookers who claimed they were virgins after a carrier group left Subic Bay.

    That damned Constitution! It’s got all sorts of pesky things in it like “advice and consent of the Senate” and “the right…to keep and bear Arms,” and “[the President] shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed,…”

    Oh boy – something is in the air . Is there a constellation above Israel just now?

    Is there a pattern there ? Any horsemen ?

    What is with everything revolving around The Holy Land?

    And no Pope in Rome.

    Any short story writers here?

    The 4 “Republicans” who voted with the dems on this man are the responsibility of the States who elected him. Are you happy Alaska, Maine, and Nebraska? You really want to confirm an anti-semitic defense secretary? Just listen to his speeches for goodness sake, oh wait, you can’t since he’s not making them, or how much he made from them, available. Now why might that be? Perhaps because he may be exposed for the anti-semite he is?

      I believe that we need to add Mississippi to that list. Cochran is from MS, not ME. The other Senator from ME is Angus King, the “independent” who caucuses with the Dems.
