It has been suggested that the GOP really does like the nomination of Chuck Hagel but they don’t want to appear to their base that they are cooperating with Obama. Nothing but political grandstanding and smoke and mirrors. I’m not letting Democrats off the hook here either because it is the same playbook used by both parties with the exception that this time it is the Republicans doing it. I’m so tired of the infantile behavior being displayed by both political parties especially during a time when the country is going down in flames. I am forced to conclude that a: both parties are so corrupt that they have lost all ability to reason or b: the problems are not quite as bad as we are being led to believe.
