    Obama wants another supposed Republican on his cabinet to replace that other corrupt incompetent boob Republicrat LaHood who is leaving as Sec of Transportation. Plus Obama wants to do all he can to destroy the US military from within.

    FOX news just showed McCain hammering Hagel, demanding he answer a question either with either a yes or a no.

    Hagel is a conservative. McCain is not.

    Nothing pisses off McCain more than a conservative

    I know McCain is not a conservative. I keep hoping he will retire.

    I don't know what Hagel is, but he is not liked by McCain.

    No kidding.

    The thing about Hagel is, he has a mind of his own. He is known to think independently about things, and state his views. Hagel is actually seen as a "rogue" by many, because he is an independant thinker. Hagel actually voted against McCain numerous times in the senate, and I would NOT be suprised if there was some bad blood there.

    Chuck Hagel has seen some combat.

    Chuck Hagel has had a very conservative voting record in the senate.

    I have a few gripes with him, the biggest being his vote for the Patriot act, so he is far from perfect.

    Before you bash Hagel on what you are seeing in some of the mainstream news, actually check out this guys record.

    I think we can do FAR worse then to have this guy as our SECDEF.

    Not at all. McCain is well known to be a neo-con jerk anyway. I respect his service, but I suspect the vietcong did some terrible things to him that effect his judgement.

    I agree with JohnnyReb. Hagel isn't a sellout, like McCain. He doesn't blow in the wind according to what's popular at the moment.

    That's exactly why I want him to be confirmed.

    I know EXACTLY what I have with Hagel. I might not agree with him all the time, but the man has a backbone and I can respect that.

    As far as his comment about the Jewish lobby that he made in the past, he is not too far off. Had he have used the term "Pro-Israel" lobby, he would have been dead on.

    He needs to be rejected simply because the squatter nominated him. As to gutting the military... no. The military is long overdue for reductions. It is far beyond anything remotely needed for defense. And there is no constitutional basis for the U.S. military to be a quasi-international cop for the u.n., etc.

    As to israel... what's the hubbub bub? They have been a net loss to the U.S. from the first time U.S. taxpayer money was funneled to them. They are just another drain that needs to be flushed out and sealed. They offer nothing to the U.S. And... given the U.S.S. Liberty and jonathan pollard, there is every reason to expect that israel could not be counted upon to do anything at all that was in the best interest of the U.S.

    And thats whats going on here. Hagel is taking the heat, because of Obama.

    So if you reject Hagel, who else will get it? Someone that is a liberal? Lets take the oppertunity to support a good nomination here guys.

    This guy will be 5th in line to the presidency, and no doubt influence some decisions in his position.

    This is a guy we want to be SECDEF, don't take frustrations at Obama out on him.

    I support Hagel 100% because he is against the Israel nation. Israel, screw yourself!
