Of course, the nomination of Hagel for Defense Chief is sheer idoiocy. We do not need someone to compliment our "Chamberlainlike"President. Obama thinks he will give us peace in our time, instead he is giving us war in our time. We are not even "speaking softly and carrying a big stick"as Theo. Roosevelt said. Obama is loudly speaking with "forked-tongue"and cutting our military at the same time - a recipe for disaster. Hagel, Kerry and Obama make up team set on a disatrous course for our nation.

Speaking to the Center for Strategic and International Studies in 2007, Sen. Chuck Hagel revealed the kind of prejudices regarding American military strength most frequently found in the pages of the Nation magazine or among protesters at Occupy rallies. Distancing himself from Republicans he regarded as too bellicose, Hagel said, "Rather than acting like a nation riddled with the insecurities of a schoolyard bully, we ought to carry ourselves with the confidence that should come from the dignity of our heritage, the experience of our...
