Exactly what qualifies Hegel for the office of Sec of Defense. That he served in Vietnam? What about his blundering interview: before the Senate Committee. Doesnt matter? More important, is this the man who is to manage the reductions to Dod? Panetta made no attempt to discriminate in his cuts, even though he had a whole year to prepare. No Hegal is walking in with so little knowledge and handle this matter. I guess McCain and others have already decided to cave on the sequester and probably on the continuing resolution.
Do you STILL not understand what the GOP has become?
“Exactly what qualifies Hegel for the office of Sec of Defense.”
He was nominated by the President of the United States.
I don’t like it, but that’s what happens. Elections have consequences, and this is one of the consequences for failing to make our case to the American people last year.
I don’t want Dems to play political games and deny the next Republican president his choice of Cabinet officials, and we shouldn’t countenance the GOP doing that today. It’s a bad precedent to set.
