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.
