Don't worry, I'm not the most anti-Israel ansti-semitic person Obama has hired. There's plenty more that are even closer to him that are way worse than me! Excuse me, I have to go spit on some long nose stingy rich guys that rhyme with news.

Hagel was confirmed and the world didn't end.

I guess that was just more fear-mongering from McCain & Graham & the other GOPasaurs.

Well, he just started! Give him some time to put his foot in his mouth and set disasterous policy. Bad things are going to happen because of this appointment.

Great, just what we need a far right, whacked out republican in charge of the military. Invest in corporations making weapons of war, because more and more wars are guaranteed.

This is a historical appointment, this is the First Secretary of Defense who has ever been Filibustered in the History of the United States.

This appointment has become a legacy if it brings nothing else.
