Key Republicans say Chuck Hagel now likely to be confirmed
The Christian Science Monitor ^ | February 17, 2013 | Brad Knickerbocker

Posted on 02/17/2013 2:48:32 PM PST by haffast

If nothing else, the congressional break for the week of Presidents’ Day is a cooling-off period for the fight over former Sen. Chuck Hagel’s nomination to be secretary of defense.

Questions about President Obama’s handling of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, which killed four Americans, including the US ambassador – an issue, by the way, which Mr. Hagel had nothing to do with – are being answered to the apparent satisfaction of Republicans … at least to the point where they’re willing to end their de facto filibuster of Hagel’s nomination.

snip

Sen. Graham, along with Sen. John McCain, led the opposition to Hagel in the Senate Armed Services Committee.

snip

“The president isn’t done with Benghazi,” McDonough said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. “He’s demanded of us, since that night, to find out exactly what happened, and to make every reform needed to ensure it does not happen again.”

The politics of the Hagel nomination are obvious to those aware of election cycles – particularly regarding Sen. Graham, who faces reelection next year and the likelihood of a challenge from his right (as did Sen. McCain in 2010).

“Graham's antics have as much to do with events in Columbia, S.C., as with events in Washington,” writes Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank. “His sentiments are no doubt genuine, but the ferocity with which he has been attacking the Obama administration – taking a high-profile role on Benghazi, Susan Rice, Hagel and gun control – are helping him to repel a tea party primary challenge at home.”

There had not be a single member of the GOP that votes for this traitor.

If any do, we must see to it that they are GONE in their next primary.

Graham gives great deference to the President? Why? When the Democrats did not like a man, they blocked him. But Graham refuses; takes Hagel at his word, despite evidence that the man’s performance before the committee was so two-faced.

Traitors. Not just to Conservatives and the GOP, but to the United States of America.

Hagel is NOT qualified. He is the WRONG man for the job for so many very valid reasons... any one of which should disqualify him.

And Republicans have no backbone.

I think the “Party of Stupid” is definitely the appropriate title!

And the rot, cancer and corruption just festers and spreads further.

This nomination by Bronco Bama was one of the most cynical and sinister appointments he has yet called up. He co-opts the Republicans by getting one of the most anti-Israeli former Senators ever in Washington, who is also a nominal “Republican”, jockeyed and levered through the confirmation process, so he can claim “bipartisan” foreign policy when the Muslim Brotherhood makes their next attempt to annihilate the Israeli state, and the US steps in to “help” in this effort, in a pretense of “even-handedness”.

Darned right the Israelis believe they have been royally shafted. Just enough of the Senate Republicans are too gullible and/or STUPID to take a principled stand.

The abyss yawns. No doubt, with boredom, as this has played out before.

We are on the edge of destruction and/or slavery.

Working Americans outside the Beltway are slaves to the Political class from both parties and the federal apparatchiks in DC, as well as the demented degenerate parasites that vote for them.

It's time for class warfare to become a two way street.

Things will begin to turn when we have a right wing from outside DC with leaders who willing to attack the parasites that support the domestic communists and their propagandists in the press and seek out the means and methods to neutralize them.

Then the crony capitalist country clubbers and bluebloods must be dealt with.

In real terms there are two options open to the Republicans.

The first is to defeat him, really for no other reason than to give Obama a “loss”, to punish him for his other vices. This would cost the Republicans nothing.

The second option is the one they will probably choose, which is to get him to promise them things in such a way that he cannot renege. This has pretty well become meaningless because Obama and his people do not keep promises.

Their rationalization for this is that he used to be a Republican, so he wouldn’t utterly devastate the DOD, like many Democrats would. That’s hooey and they know it.

If you are an American conservative, your MOST DANGEROUS enemy is NOT Obama or the people who put him in office. Its the Carl Roves, the Lindsey Grahams, the John McCains, the Chrissie Whitmans, The Bushes, the Christies, etc.

The entire menagerie of frauds, fakes and failures whose only purpose in life is to perpetuate their terms of office by generating NO controversy, taking NO political stands and having NO political philosophies which reflect the beliefs of the majority of their Republican Constituents. They only occupy space and office. Space and office which could be put to better use by candidates like Rubio and Rand Paul.

The Oil for Food scandal has obvious implications for the policy he’s been advocating of subjecting U.S. interests to a Security Council veto. GOP Senator Chuck Hagel is another U.N. booster. If they mean what they say about enhancing the power of the U.N., in Iraq and elsewhere, then they in particular have an obligation to ensure that the world body is both effective and free of corruption. -—— “Oil for Scandal : Where’s Jesse Helms when the U.N. really needs him?,” WSJ Opinion journal, Thursday, March 18, 2004 12:01 a.m. EST

Hagel & Lebanon :

What I remember is that Aburdene is a campaign contributor to Hagel through one of his PACs. But if you look further, you will see that Hagel has been part of a bunch of commissions to all parts of the world, and oddly enough the name Aburdene pops up among the other members of the commission. It is my guess that these are all members of the same family. 101 posted on 07/15/2005 6:27:30 PM PDT by Eva | To 98

A company the Gore family had a long-term relationship with, Occidental Petroleum, shared business interests with Alamoudi-affiliated companies in Africa and the Middle East, and employed as Vice President for Middle East business Odeh Aburdene,24 who shared a complex network of relationships with Rock Creek’s Elias Aburdene and Joseph Wilson—notably, all three contributed to Arab-American Congressional Caucus leader Nick Rahall,25 who supported Muslim lobbying groups linked to terrorists and opposed military action in Iraq.26 Abdurahman Alamoudi also contributed to Rahall, and sat on the steering committee of Arab Americans for Clinton/Gore ‘96 along with his associate James Zogby, who later advised Gore’s 2000 Presidential campaign.27 Wilson had worked as an aide to Gore from 1985 to 1986 and had developed a friendly relationship with him.

Well, I’ve been of a mind that the opposition to Hagel was never really about his fitness (or lack thereof) to be SecDef. He just happened to be a convenient bargaining chip to leverage against the administration. Now that they have gotten a bone or two from Obama on Benghazi, Hagel will probably sail through. Graham may vote no just to shore up his support back home. Most of the GOP will probably vote Aye on Hagel, I’d wager, and planned to all along.

I wish I could be less cynical about Beltway politics, especially when it comes to the Senate, but I really can’t anymore.

Duh.

It is AMAZING to me how many here still do not understand what is happening to us.

The Republicans are NOT the home team. They are the ENEMY.

The only difference between the Republican Party and the Democratic Party is that we still are able to destroy the Republican Party before it finishes its transformation into the "legal opposition" to the designated Leading Party.

The Republicans, if they are not destroyed, will become like the "official" other parties in the GDR or the USSR - their "leaders" will be state employees and their followers will be nonexistent.

Don’t be misled. Rubio is very much part of Jeb Bush’s machine and Karl Rove backs him. The Tea Party is going to be sadly disappointed if he is being perceived as an outsider because he is far from that.

This is the Senate, but the revulsion of conservatives for the round healed GOPe will spread to the House and make it more likely that the GOP under present management will lose the House in 2014 and fail to pick up seats in the Senate. Should that happen, the last faint check on Obama will be gone and so will the US.

And we're supposed to take the request seriously...
