    What I like about Chuck Hagel is that he tell it like it is and that come from being an NCO in the Army. He put America and American first and not Israel and there are too many Senator and American Jews out there who don’t like it when he said “I am an American Senator and not an Israel Senator.

    So what happens if Congress refuses to confirm Hagel? Can’t Obama just not nominate anyone else and appoint Hagel as “Interim” Secretary of Defense and let him do the job without confirmation? That would teach ‘em!!

    • ObozoMustGo

      FT… you are 100% correct. Obozo’s already done that 2 or 3 times. Screw that stupid Constitution and it’s advise and consent requirement. I mean, when we have a benevolent dictator like Obozo, why do we need Congress anyway?

      Have a nice day!

      “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” – C. S. Lewis

        Maybe FT’s suggestion is the correct method to deal with brain dead obstructionists.

        And I presume that your own in deep knowledge of our constitution is based on long study, frequent testing such as a bar exam or two, and some years of successfully meeting the challenge of conducting classroom instruction about constitutional law in front of a couple of dozen well educated geniuses at the nation’s top ranked legal training institution who will call you out at the slightest misstep? No wait, that would be our president. Whoever you are, when you step into this arena and question his constitutional expertise, you have so obviously stepped into the mental equivalent of an artillery dual with nothing more than a set of nail clippers. You engage in a battle of wits, and you are totally unarmed. I could do as you have done and just lob a bunch of silly names at you, like dumbass, nitwit, dimbulb and such. But I really don’t think you would understand.

        • ObozoMustGo

          sleepy… when you remove your mouth from Obozo’s sphincter, you can read the rest of my response………………………………… are you ready?……………….. I’ll wait. It must take a while for you get your face out of Obozo’s a$$………. There. Good effort.

          Now…. 3 things:

          1) Obozo’s limited amount of time lecturing on basic Constitutional principles was obviously a complete waste of time for those poor souls foced to listen to him talk about himself for 2 or 3 hours a week.

          2) The Constitution is available for everyone to read, even a moron like you. You should try reading it.

          3) The Constitution requires presidential cabinet appointees to be confirmed in the Senate. It’s the way it is. Too bad for you dopes on the left who would love Obozo to be your dictator. Hell, he’s already your messiah. Why not, right?

          Have a nice day, and remain oblivious!

          “The difference between being stupid and being a fool: A stupid person at least has an idea about their own inadequacies. The fool is oblivious to them, and is more inclined to believe their own fantasies and lies as truth.” – ObozoMustGo

          • sleepvark

            Oh come on, is that all you’ve got? More infantile name calling and mindless ad hominem attacks? Try communicating like an actual human being with more than a second rate second grade education, and while you’re at it pull your head out of your faux news. You have no idea who you’re dealing with. At the same time, you are so pathetically predictable, not to mention unpatriotically hateful of everything good and holy that we real Americans believe in. I am ashamed to have you as a fellow citizen, if indeed you are one. You talk more like the enemies I used to face across battle lines during my decades of military service. Please don’t bother to respond. You are not worth the effort, and I will scrape you off like something vile on the bottom of my shoes. Enjoy whatever hell you live in. You deserve it richly.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Sleepy… it was your attempt to give Obozo some underserved constitutional credibility that prompted my response to you. While he may have attended college, no one knows how he got in or how he graduated because he wont release his records. And his actions while in office demonstrate a blatant disregard for the Constitution. Go listen to his speech to LaRaza where they cheer him wildly when he says that he’d like to just go around congress to get immigration done. In fact, that’s exactly what he did when he unilaterally granted illegals functional amnesty without so much as a word from the legislative body. What about a year ago when he made those 2 appointments declaring that Congress was not in session when they were? Uhhhh stupid…. the President doesnt declare Congress in or out of session, the Congress does. That didn’t stop him. And now, here these useful idiots in these comments are yearning for the day when Obozo becomes their Furor like a bunch of lost sheep pining for a shepherd. It’s disgusting. It’s also disgusting to see that someone that has given so many years of service to our country (thank you by the way) under the oath to protect and defend the Constitution, has been swindled by the lies of Obozo and the left. You’re certainly a small minorty of military people that supports leftist freaks like Obozo.

            Have a nice day!

            “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency…Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” – Czech Republic newspaper Prager Zeitung

          • grammyjill

            Maybe we would like him to just do it. At least something would get done then.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Like I said before grammy…. screw the Constitution and let your dear leader and messiah do as he pleases like a dictator. That would make you happy because then “something could get done”. What exactly is the “something” that could be done?

            Grammy, do you have so little respect for the Constitution that you are willing to set aside the law of the land and allow your boy Obozo to be a dictator?

            Have a nice day, Grammy!

            Do you hate your country so much that you are happy that the republicans are trying to distroy us? That is what they are doing and have done for years now. The only thing that has saved us is the smart black guy in the white house. Who by the way WON THE ELECTION. And by more than 5 million votes. Get use to it! If you actually watched something besides fox entertainment (NOT NEWS) you would know that the president is not the bad guy those idiots try to make him out as. Mcconnell on sunday kept saying he wanted the president to come work with them. HA! He’s been trying to work with them for four years and they have always refused. Every plan put to the house has been refused. And now the debt ceiling is coming and they are threatening to shut down the government if the president doesn’t come up with budget cuts. OK, he offered them 1.2 trillion more in budget cuts during the fical cliff bullshit. They refused them. Why? Because he wasn’t whipping out social security and medicare. That is their goal. They honestly believe that anyone that is worth less than 500 thousand dollars a year doesn’t deserve to live. Look at what they did to Sandy victims.

          • grammyjill

            Thank you. He needs that.

          • 101strac

            There you go again, repeating that same self-descriptive quote you’re so fond of. Good of you to acknowledge your status of fool. also foil for the repubs.

          • 101strac

            Most of us out here sort of hoped that after the drubbing you clowns took at the polls, we would get at least a one year reprieve from your maniacal postings. maybe you’ld go to sleep for a year, unless of course global warming has thrown your hibernation cycle off.

        Recess appointments have been going on since we became a nation. The first involved President Washington appointing South Carolina judge John Rutledge as Chief Justice of the United States during a congressional recess in 1795. The last involved President George W. Bush appointing William Pryor Jr. to the 11th Circuit Court while Congress was in recess.
        Needless to say, Congress is obligated, constitutionally, to either approve or reject the “recess appointment” within one year.

      • grammyjill

        You sir are still an ass! I want Hagel. He will at least try to protect our military children. If you had a child in the military, you would want Hagel too.

        • ObozoMustGo

          Grammy, that’s a typical leftist mind-knot you are twisted up in yet again. Don’t be that dumb. Your insinuation is that anyone else that Obozo chooses will somehow NOT protect military children. It’s a fals premise, Grammy. Admit it. You only want Hagel because your dear leader Obozo wants him.

          Have a nice day!

          “Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm– but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.” — T. S. Eliot

          • grammyjill

            No, actually I want him because that major scumbag Lindsey Graham is so against him. The way I feel about it is that usually the Sec of Defense is someone that has never even been near a battle. Hagel has been there. He had friends die around him. So, he won’t be offhanded or really quick to send our children into another war. He and John Kerry would work together to try to find a different anwser first. When your kid is military that is very important.

        Bozo every recent president has done this, there is nothing illegal about it. It seems that you only get upset when President Obama does it. By the way you sound so juvenile when you bastardize the Presdient’s name, it’s not new or creative just juvenile. As for being a dictator you may want to look back at W’s administration and see how Cheney tried to expand the powers of the executive office.

        I know you love to say how you need your precious guns to protect your liberty but that is just “bs” and you know it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/dominick.vila.1 Dominick Vila

      Bush waited until Congress was in recess to do exactly that. An he succeeded.

    I have never seen such jealousy in our republican party, they are losers.

      Bear in mind that if Chuck Hagel had been nominated by a Republican President he would have been hailed as the best thing that happened to this country since ice cream.

      • BuzzLOL

        .. No EvilBushie Wing GOP president would have ever nominated Hagel… he’s not bloodthirsty enough…

    Have a nice day!

    “Tell Vladimir, after my next election, I will have more flexibility.” – Barack Hussein Obozo caught on microphone promising Vladimir he will screw America after he does not have to worry about the stupid voters again.

  • peteserb

    Only the liberals would love to back an idiot like Hagel.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jim-Myers/100001512942781 Jim Myers

      Replying to peteserb –

      AND YET, HE WAS ELECTED MULTIPLE TIMES BY REPUBLICANS!!!!!!

    • grammyjill

      You must not have a child in the military. If you did, you would want Hagel in to protect your child. Someone that has already been there is more inclined to try to avoid war if possible instead of jumping right in and to hell with our kids.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZJ5BBSQIGTUMERPZFALES6HQNY Bill

      Pleaase expand on your statement, why is Hagel an idiot. Offer proof or shut up!

    The more snide remarks and hate mail bloggers I see from the LOOSER Tea Baggers, the more I LIKE Chuck Hagel.

    I CAN’T HELP BUT LAUGH AT THE WIERDO’S WHO BELITTLE HAGEL BECAUSE HE WAS AN ENLISTED MAN. PARTICULARLY FROM THOSE WHO NEVER SERVED.

    What a bunch of hypocrites and cry babies.

    Have a nice day.

    The only way to deal with theRepublican & Tea Party Cartel is to marginalize them and make them irrealavant, since they represent less than 30% of our population.

  • jstsyn

    Hagel is not a chickenhawk like many of the gop chicken $hits. Hope his nomination goes through.

    I think that there could be nothing better than a common foot soldier to get that position. Someone who has suffered the wounds of war & not go off half cocked into a war.

  • grammyjill

    I think everyone should write, call and email our congress and let them know we want Hagel and we don’t give a damn what they want. Harass them about everything!

    The republican congress is made up of Vietnam era draft dodgers. McConnell lasted 10 days in the Nation Guard and Boehner lasted 8 weeks in Navy boot camp – and those were the ones with actual time in.
