RCP has Hagel confirmed easily. Has anyone else noticed RCP’s drift to the left?
“Hagel is refusing to answer any of the questions or make any effort to get them the answers,” the aide said. “He is basically telling Senators they have no right to know if he has been unduly influenced by foreign governments or foreign agents over the last five years. What is he hiding? I’m told several Senators, including McCain, who have previously expressed opposition to a filibuster said privately yesterday that failure to disclose foreign funding information would change their thinking.”
DUH!! What’s the big deal? That’s exactly what the Illegal’s done for his whole life and no pubbie, expecially McCain, has said a word about it.
Heck, he's so dimwitted he might not know where the money comes from.
It’s a legitimate issue...what’s he got to hide?
Is Helen Reddy?
A silly question. Hagel could ax-murder a young girl (in the most heinous way possible) on live TV viewed by millions and the Dems would still confirm him by a 100% vote.
Has anyone indicated an amount for Hagel’s “foreign funding” over the past five years?
It wouldn’t effect anyone else’s privacy or interests for Hagel to release total numbers for foreign funding, and what percentage that is of total funding (on a year-by-year basis would be best). If we are talking peanuts, this would be a non-issue. Dodging release of anything at all makes you suspect it is not peanuts, and thus speaks to the independence of the nominee.
Between this and the sexual harrassment claims (by his staffers) seems to me non-political grounds for him to be told to step side by Obama.
