Senate confirms Hagel the Bagel as Defense Secretary

Rome didn't collapse because of a single bad decision, but rather out of thousands of them.   No wrong turn can make a mighty superpower go off the cliff all by itself, but every mistake behind the wheel  leads to further trouble, and, as the mistakes mount up, so does the loss of control and the potential for disaster.

And -- no doubt about it -- some wrong turns are worse than others.

Today, the U.S. Senate made an awful decision, thanks to 15 Republican senators who decided to back President Obama's highly unqualified nominee for Defense Secretary.

For a list of the surnames of those 15 Senators, go HERE.

Hagel the Hollow, the human bagel, who projects nothing but weakness and whose bearing seems to scream out surrender and suicidal depression, is on the fast track to assuming charge of the world's mightiest military force.

Google "Hagel", go to images, and see how easy it is to find photos of the man that prove he is the incarnation of Joe Btfsplk, the world's saddest and worst jinx, from the old Li'l Abner comics.

Forget the saying "don't judge a book by its cover"; forget "looks don't mean anything" too.   Look at Hagel's record, examine his position on all key issues concerning defense and the role the U.S. should play in the world.  You will find a perfect match between the inner Hagel and the outer Hagel.   Zero man.  Or is it Minus man, less than zero?

Kiss U.S. military supremacy goodbye.  Get ready for some awful decisions, and for the emboldening of our worst enemies.  It's all part of the plan to go off the cliff, and the designated driver is about to take the wheel.

One version of the whole sad story HERE.

    Gracias Carlos! On the Money! A Jew-hating Sec of Defense who supports Islamo-nazis and is endorsed by the govt of Iran and Farrakhan. What complete idiots and unpatriotic to boot!

    He didn't nominate nor confirm himself. Whatever harm comes of this, blame the truly responsible.

  • asombra

    I repeat, Hagel could be Bubba's brother, Dopey Clinton.

  • Kerry. Now Hagel. Next, Phil Peters gets back his State Dept. post.

  • asombra

    The job should have gone to George Clooney. At least he'd look better being incompetent.

    Well, within a year or two we'll see how bad of a choice Hagel was. I'm certain there are some individuals feeling very uneasy in Tel Aviv.

    Iran is racing towards the bomb and there are several hotspots around the world that can flare on a moment's notice (still the Middle East is the number one spot). When that happens things could get very interesting for us all.

    I believe this is part of the master-plan that POTUS envisioned since coming to office in 2008. Now with Kerry and Hagel as the last pieces of the puzzle the plan will come into action.

    For Hagel, prez hussein, and all other rabid leftists & anti-semites who pushed him through, just one thought: ignore world history at your peril. A long-assured curse your way cometh. And no, there's no bagel in Hagel; he doesn't consume those, he despises Israel....to his eventual demise. It's deplorable that there are those senators who choose to be liberals first, and Jewish last. Nobody escapes this one.

    And I hope this at least makes Rand Paul's presidential aspirations impossible. But all I can see with the nominees from this president getting in is a third Obama term and a perpetual Obama presidency. So there will no longer be a need for Republicans to run at all anymore. And these fifteen should be remembered as the cause of the end of this country.

    Next up Jane Fonda for National Security Adviser and Bill Ayers for Secretary of Education. It is perfectly logical.

    And, Asombra, you are so funny.

    Influential American Jews should have made a huge stink over Hagel, both for Israel's sake and theirs, regardless of whether or not he'd be confirmed. Evidently, they have other priorities, just as too many Cubans have dubious priorities. The difference, however, is that Cubans are not the Chosen People, and rather less can be expected of them. When I think of Barbra Streisand, for one, frantically trying to drum up support for Obama before this last election, as if her very life depended on it, I simply want to throw up. Needless to say, she's hardly an isolated or unusual case in that regard. It's beyond frustrating; it's irrational.

  • asombra

    Hagel has no lips. The man is lipless. Bad sign.

  • asombra

    And Honey, I'm just ironic. I'm shooting for the Congressional Medal of Honor.

  • asombra

    What's the difference between a Republican loser and a Dem witch? The witch would get plastic surgery.

    McCain voted for him??!!!!
