Goodbye Israeli. Goodbye Military. Goodbye Gays.
That's the Obama-Benghazi way.

Did they say Bagel fight?
Hagel's a lousy pick.
Obama just wants to stick it in Netanyahu's eye.
Obama is going to find out what happens when you pick a cat up by it's tail.

It is amazing how fast the GOP turns on its own. They won't even approve a top republican for an appointment by Obama. Hagel, thru his ballot changing company, is responsible for hundreds of republicans assuming office, yet if Obama appoints him, they are opposed.

It is hilarious beyond belief.

Hell, Obama already picked Kerry that lied before congress, put himself in for bandaid medals and gave aid and comfort to the enemy. He fits right in to the overthrow of the constitution.

He is not a top republican, or he wouldn't have been ousted.

I said nothing about trusting any of those people. I was simply pointing out that the GOP will not even trust any of its own being appointed by Obama. No matter who Obama appoints to anything the GOP will be opposed.

As to should we trust Obama? Absolutely not. He is trying to appoint Hagel, which proves he cannot be trusted.

One reason and ONE reason only for this supposed "fight" to break out - the Jewish Lobby, AIPAC and their pals.

Hagel has no credentials problems, his only "mistakes" have been that he occasionally told unpopular truths - saying that Iraq was a stupid war and saying that maybe, just maybe Israel wasn't always a perfect ally.

Of course that's blasphemy to the far right and the Zionists, so they're all looking for a fight on this one. Give it to 'em, I say. Let them reveal their own insanity publicly.

Professor Fartsack, as a well known leftist POS you should NOT be calling anyone a liar. Oh BTW, how did that work out for you trying to get me reprimanded and/or banned by topix...LOLOLOLOL! You are the worst of the left, arrogant, deluded, snarky. We CAN be thankful you have absolutely no authority nor influence in your real life.

You're no better than the troll stalker. Not surprising that you befriend every troll who appears, since you've always been one yourself, au Jimbo. Never have you proven me wrong, never have you documented a "lie," and never do you project more than when you call another poster a "moron."

And of course you know I'm a 'he,' which makes me wonder again if things like that and your affectionate little nicknames for male posters ('pookie' and 'cupcake' and such) indicate a closeted homosexuality on your part.

What did you expect from obama? Always expect the least and prepare to settle for less. It's a "progressive" thing.

Obama just announced the new Sec of the Treasure....Jack Lew....who has zero financial expertise and has NEVER worked in the financial industry. You can't make this stuff up.

Obama seems committed to making complete fools of those who trusted him with a second term.

How sad for our children. How sad for us all.
