Watch the clip below. Hes also been reassuring senators that he wont have a policymaking role as SecDef, in case theyre leery of tasking an unqualified incompetent with so much responsibility. Hes basically daring Democrats to vote no, isnt he?
He won’t have to worry. The sock puppet living in our White House’s handlers will tell him what to do and when . . . just like they do for Obambi.
He is qualified to glad hand voters in Omaha and throw press conferences where he says stupid stuff, but that's about it.
Another guy who will need on the job training
As El Rushbo pointed out today, job number 1 for Obama’s SecDef is to be the figurehead to take the blame for the POTUS when SHTF.
We could learn something from the Democrats though. When the going gets tough, the Dems circle the wagons (even Schumer!!). With Republicans, when the going gets tough, we eat our own.
Kerry and Hagel are the only guys Obama knows who served in the military. On a serious note, somehow these two will figure into Obamas grand plan.
We have to confirm the Sec before we can find out what he stands for.
As Kurt V. suggested, *******
What difference does it make?!
Even the Democrats were trying to bail his stammering butt out.
34 years in the military with a combat arms background are what I base my thoughts on.
I was just smiling at the thought of General Mattis in the position.
