According to various reports, Obama will nominate Chuck Hagel for defense secretary. Beinart puts the nomination in context:
What makes Hagel so important, and so threatening to the Republican foreign-policy elite, is that he is one of the few prominent Republican-aligned politicians and commentators (George Will and Francis Fukuyama are others, but such voices are rare) who was intellectually changed by Iraq. And Hagel was changed, in large measure, because he bore within him intellectual (and physical) scar tissue from Vietnam. As my former colleague John Judis captured brilliantly in a 2007 New Republic profile, the Iraq War sparked something visceral in Hagel, as the former Vietnam rifleman realized that, once again, detached and self-interested elites were sending working-class kids like himself to die in a war they couldn’t honestly defend.
To my mind, this is his core qualification. Unlike so many of the lemmings and partisans of Washington DC, Hagel actually called out the catastrophe of the Iraq War as it happened. The neocons cannot forgive him for exposing what they wrought on the nation and the world. For good measure, he has a Purple Heart and has served in combat. Not easy to say about most of the Iraq War armchair warriors and war criminals.
Which is to say, as Chuck Todd said this morning, this nomination is about accountability for the Iraq War. All those ducking responsibility for the calamity - Abrams, Kristol, Stephens - are determined that those of us honest enough to resist, having supported in the first place, be erased from history. Or smeared as anti-Semites. Or given that epithet which impresses them but baffles me: "outside the mainstream". Rephrase that as - after initial support - being "outside the Iraq War mainstream" in DC - and you have a major reason to back him.

Interesting that Hagel and Kerry; both Vietnam war veterans.

In FY 2013, mandatory spending is budgeted at 60% of total Federal spending and 2 1/2 times as much as the military budget. The mandatory budget is estimated to be $2.293 trillion, a new record.

(a new record...)

The largest mandatory spending program? Social Security at $820 billion.

The projected revenues from increasing SS taxes is $600 billion.

Are there any liberals who are starting to get the picture?

Think we could make some progress that way.
We'll have to hold on this being a possibility until the Divider-in-Chief leaves once and for all.

There was no war on women.

There was no war on the middle class.

Only suckers believe that.

It's how Nazi Germany suckered people into believing there was a war against the Jews too.

You are another sucker on the wrong side of history.

Looked at your paycheck yet? Ready to stand in long lines at hospitals and clinics?

Figured out the spending for SS is $2 billion more than the revenues from increasing SS taxes from our paychecks?

Frankly, nuc, you are nothing more than a pathetic blind follower of your blind ideology.

Foir someone who works part tilme and only makes $15 per hour, you'd better pray they don't mess with your SS.

Based on your disclosures here, you don't have a pot to piss in, nor a window to throw it out of.

Oh, but you just want to take it away from those under 50.

That's why you're American scum.

Just wait until Obamacare is in full swing for an entire year.

You've gotten a lot sicker since Rmoney and Santorum lost the election!!
Your depression and anxiety is off the charts!!
And you've got FOUR MORE YEARS to suffer!!
Carry on, Dweeb. Your disconnection from reality is becoming more severe by the day.
You've gone from attacking Obama to attacking Cassius Clay.
The only common thread is that they're both black men.
And we all know how frightened you impotent old white midgets are of powerful black men.
Y'all are enraged that black men have far larger penises than white boys.
Explains why you see all the georgeous white women (Heidi Klum for one) hooked up with black studs.
It's all about penis envy to you midgets, isn't it??
You're running away from this post like a scalded dog.
I'll help you regain some dignity here and give you a chance to step up and answer the question. Here's the post you run away from again:

We still haven't had an answer to this question. To date, nobody on Earth has been able to answer this question:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Well?
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

This from a nitwit who thinks Bill O'Reilly is the messiah??

A Christian who forgives his sexual perversions because she's enthralled by the moron??

It's so funny for you to call others 'blind followers', while a poor person like you supports the wealthy, even as the greatest transfer of wealth in history from the Middle Class to the wealthy occurred under Bush's watch.

The good news is that your hatred and racism has been rejected, even in your home state!!

And your voice will become weaker and weaker, until it will no longer be heard.

And these are the words of the Holy Gospel!!
