One is a sicko whacked out republican and the other supports torture. Why won't Obama change his political affiliation to republican and quit pretending to support the nation?

Hagel sounds good. He was one of the very few
Republicans who had the guts to call Bush's
Iraq war what it was...a costly disaster for
America.

Once everybody finally understood that the Congress
of the United States and the American people had
been lied into an unnecessary war by Bush and
his warmongering chicken-hawks brigade, it was too late anyway. The cost? 2400 dead patriotic Americans, 30,000 wounded and $2 trillion in unfunded obligations.

Isn’t it just so frustrating to have all that hate built up after years of spewing the same nonsense about racist preachers and paling around with terrorist and tax dodging and Muslim sympathizer only to have millions of patriotic Americans come out and reject your ignorance as we re-elected our Osama-killing President in another landslide… with a mandate?

It must really be frustrating… you see I wouldn’t know since I am on the winning side… but I feel your pain… I mean, I celebrate your pain and misery… enjoy the Inauguration… Justice Roberts should get the oath correct this time, seeing that he had 4 years to practice, LOL!

A. The mandate is a myth,” said John Altman, associate professor of political science at York College of Pennsylvania.“But even if there was such a thing as a mandate, this clearly isn’t an election that would produce one.”

Barack Obama won a second term but no mandate. Thanks in part to his own small-bore and brutish campaign, victory guarantees the president nothing more than the headache of building consensus in a gridlocked capital on behalf of a polarized public.

If the president begins his second term under any delusion that voters rubber-stamped his agenda on Tuesday night, he is doomed to fail.

B. Policies set in by George W. Bush afer 9/11 led to the location of the compound where obl was located when the Navy Seals killed him..all obama did was say "OK" after a 16 hour thought.

C. Judge Roberts gave the correct seawing in in 2009....but nobama forgot the part about "defend and protect the Constitution..

Idiot.

Waterboarding led the the location of osama bin laden....therefore nobama is part of the waterboarding since he ok'd the mission after CIA informed him they knew where obl was located. Without the infor at Gitmo, you lefties would'bt able to strut around claiming "nobama got him." DUH

yeah, really, but remember, obama started with the 47% who pay no taxes, and to them, obama can do no wrong. That meant he only had to get a few more percentage points to win. Not hard at all, considering the unions, govt workers, gays, women with vagina issues, ponytailed ex hippies, kids easily fooled and enviro whackos.

The tipping point was when the non taxpayers finally outnumbered and outnumbered the taxpayers....game over man

Hagel voted FOR the Iraq resolution, dopey. Mr. Wishey washey changed his mind after it wasn't popular with hollywood..period.

Clowns like you claim Bush wasn't smart, but claim he conned ALL those democrats into voting for Iraq war....doesn't say much about them, does it..or you for that matter as you re-elected them! LMAO

Unfunded....congress approved the funding..

If cluelessness was crude oil, your scalp would have camels roaming around on your noggin.

Well there are about 18,000 articles saying he is going to pivot. It must be the circle jerk, since it can't be about jobs with 14.4% unemployment.
