He could not get the answer right even when it was handed to him on a piece of paper. JUST ANOTHER POOR CHOICE. OBAMA can only select those that have problems and are a detriment to America not an asset. Or should I say those that are azz kissers.

The only moron here is Lindsay Grant!!!! You can not used views on Israel as a litmus test for candidates of the Defense or Energy department!

Using US resources, blood, and technology to be servant to Israel's need is TREASON AND BETRAYAL! Lindsay Grant is holding US hostage to the will of another country! We are not a host to parasites! You work for the US not Israel and you should never use us to spy or to legislate or to decide our destiny in terms of conforming to Israel's agenda!

Lindsay Grant is not different from Benedict Arnold!!! Serving another country that spies on us and uses us to conduct it's foreign affair!

It was Bull Connor, a member of the Democrat National Committee, who turned the hoses on the marchers in Birmingham, and it was the Republicans who made up the majority that passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, over the filibuster of such Democrat paragons as William Fulbright and Al Gore Sr.- and Grand Kleagle Byrd.

Compared to what you eat, it's a healthy diet.

Let's see. At least six brain dead tea-slurping wimps on this thread, including some repeaters, who like to think they are in a position to criticize their betters.

Winston Churchill once said,
"The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter."
With the Tea Party, we don't have to wait that long.

Amazing, yet embarrassing that McCain would attack Hagel so hard, considering when McCain ran in 2008, he tabbed Hagel as his Secretary of Defense....Very Ironic....

If nothing else, McCain got to score a few points
with the tea party morons who love the tough guy routine. But most folks saw him as just an angry old man trying to repair his image as a George W.
Bush stoolie who was a great defender of
Bush's Iraq war.

McCain has a well-deserved reputation as having
been an arrogant, reckless, insubordinate hothead
of an officer when he served on the USS Forrestal
where he was responsible for touching off the huge
explosion that killed 134 sailors back in 1967.
He can never live that down.

No wonder he's always attacking somebody.

Dear, I realized the Grand Ol' Party was a backward thinking loser "stupid party" long ago after listening to Bush/Rove, Palin, Bachmann, Akin, etc. but it would be wise for the Grand Ol' Party of Old Ideas to listen to Powell, Jindal, etc. if they want to bring their party into the 21st Century of the Non-Stupid Party.
