GOP opponents of Hagel's Pentagon nomination say Senate vote should go ahead despite concerns

Feb 17, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - Republican opponents of former Sen. Chuck Hagel's stalled bid to become defense secretary said Sunday that they'll probably allow his Senate confirmation vote to proceed unless material more damaging to the nominee - and, by extension, the Obama administration - surfaces in the coming week.

The US congress hates Chuck Hagel because he's not a puppet for Israel and AIPAC.

Too much hot aired grandstanding does not always work for the republicants especially with someone as bitter as McCain.

Have you ever looked at the crowds Obama plays to in America, Hates speech you say, Obama is the only politician with a true coalition in Americans supporting him. Bridging, race, gender and economic status, Obama brings people together.

Now, on the other hand, you look at the crowds supporting the GOP? There's no mistaken who supports the Right's position and politicians. There is no differences in the crowd of the people supporting Republican Candidates..... it's an exclusive gathering.

It is fairly obvious there are some issues unresolved surrounding the Bengazi issue. Coupled with the coverup on the Fast & Furious fiasco. There is a lot of smoke, and at some point, we will see the fire. The issue will be, The Obama's may no longer occupy the WH when we actually find out what happen and therefore will continue his trend of not be held accountable for anything!
The ATF ran 'Fast and Furious' as the latest of a series of gun-tracking programs, and the State Department was responsible for security in Benghazi. Obviously Mr. Obama was not responsible for either fiasco.

Both are really just being used by his enemies to attack him, obviously. It's the far right which isn't accountable - least of all to the truth!

Purely your own twisted imagination at work, Dane, as usual. Unless you can actually cite some "hatespeak" or "divisiveness" by Mr. Obama in his speeches.

Just like you see on these forum's daily.....GOP supporters tend to be exclusively white, mean-spirited and often under educated. They seem to dwell on accusing the other side of being more mean-spirited, which i just don't find to be true.....also, often what they can't defend, they chose to forget...like the 2008 recession.....

Hispanic, Double BA in Econ and Business with an MBA in business. Oh, and who keeps blaming the other side? All Obama said in his first 4 years is he "inherited" this mess! You really are a racist MF aren't you!

What happened to the "the Buck Stops Here" comment at the 3rd debate? I guess Mr. Obama simply said that because that was the Leftwing nuts wanted to hear. Lot of Bull shit, no substance! Keep on drinking the Kool aide,

That should be "pissing OUT lies," just to correct it before "Niether" [sic] falls all over himself trying to score points off of an error...:)

Where is the lie, little coward? Are you denying the President didn't say that? What exactly is the lie? I don't indulge in the spell check/grammar check ploy of the leftwing nuts who have no logical response to questions or statements! I am sure I won't get an answer to this either, because when confronted with the facts, the emotional left diverts or deflects or attacts,,, Care to prove me wrong? I doubt it!
