Chuck Hagel´s Defenseless Performance
Wall Street Journal, by Dorothy Rabinowitz

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/4/2013 5:28:09 AM

It shouldn´t have been surprising that the Senate hearings to confirm Chuck Hagel as the next secretary of defense ended up shedding light on much more than this nominee and his qualifications. The trumpets had sounded long in advance on the main claim for Mr. Hagel—i.e., that his experience as an enlisted man, a combat veteran, had endowed him with special expertise not given to others, on matters of war, on our nuclear capacity, the size of our defense budget, a capacity to take the measure of Iran and North Korea. Mr. Hagel had come by this wisdom,

Obama picked Hagel so he could make the decisions himself. Destroy the military! Its much quicker this way and Obozo doesn´t get the blame.

All of Obama´s appointments are figureheads who get their advice from burnt out 70´s radicals.A person with their own ideas or expertise wouldn´t be allowed anywhere near these jobs.The whole point of Obama is to turn everything traditional on it´s head.

If you ask any tough questions to these clowns,you´ll get a stinging rebuke from the WH which is a form of intimidating another branch of government.Just like obama intimidating he SC on obamacare while the decision was still in progress.

Lets be clear......those who vote to confirm Hagel have more desire to protect Obama from looking bad than they have a desire to protect the USA and maintain good leadership for our troops put in harms way.

Hagel reminds me of the confused elderly uncle at the family reunion. Harmless, but not thinking clearly.
Not the kind of guy you would put in charge of anything.
But, elections have consequences.

I can´t pay any more attention to this. Kerry and Hagel are both affronts to our military, Purple Hearts or not, yet they will both be confirmed.

I am watching closely, however, Kyle´s murder. His anti-Obama feelings were well known. Hopefully the government doesn´t drag out giving us details. Some military people are waiting for the PTSD shoe to drop. They´re afraid this will be used for Obama´s anti-gun push. Remember Big Sis´s warning early on about returning vets.

The very idea that a former enlisted man has such vast knowledge about world affairs and military actions and reactions etc. is laughable. I am a former enlisted man (Air Force) and I can tell you that most enlisted men, especially ground troops, are more involved in staying alive than naval gazing. In fact, how many former enlisted men would one have entrusted to plan and execute the invasion of Normandy? Officers that have reach field level rank are usually sent to War College where they are taught the history of warfare and what works and what doesn´t. No enlisted man does. Neither do Senators and/or former Senators.

Sadly, as Ms. Rabinowitz says, Hagel will most likely be confirmed and the Republican won´t do a thing to stop it. Unlike dims, they don´t seem to have to courage to fillibuster a nomination they don´t like. And this is one that the nominee is clearly unqualified for the office.

Why do we assume Hagel misspoke when he said Obama´s policy on Iran was "containment"? Why do we assume that this adminstration´s public policy utterances are the same as its actual objectives?

I think Hagel did not accidently make a mistake, I think he accidently told the truth.

The confirmation of Chuck Hagel as Sec of Defense will prove what a shameful embarrassing bunch of partisan jackals run the government. Couldn´t agree more with #4. This is about shielding the unfortunate freak of nature we have in the WH. Just look at the heaping mess our foreign policy is in and they can´t say enough about how great Hillary was. These people are truely despicable.

Obama presupposes he´s smarter than those who disagree with him, or calls themselves conservative, yet the truth is he´s hateful, evil, and not so bright.

We know he´s a Socialist/Communist fraud.
We know he´s a pathetic liar.
We know he paid to hide his background AND the truth about his birth.
We know he is deliberately destroying America economically, socially, and industrially.
We know he is circumventing the rule of law and ignoring the Constitution.
We know he is building up his Muslim Brotherhood, while hating America´s closest world ally, Israel.
We know the other branches of government are playing pocket-pool while Obama burns America down and no one seems to have any power, ability, or gumption to do anything about it.
We´ve seen Obama bow to foreign leaders, give the Queen of England a personalized Ipod, send the bust of Winston Churchill back to England, and pronounce corpsman as "corpseman." (Hey, Obama, the p and s are silent, you ignorant twit!)

All this and he thinks he can run our lives with his tyranny while trying to convince us it´s for our own good? He´s trying to destroy us and the media is complicit in this whole nasty charade!

It is a long flight, but one Texas governor has a singular calling. Rick Perry has departed for the Republic of Palua, where many thousands of U.S. forces saw fierce fighting during the Pacific campaign of World War II on the islands of Peleliu and Angaur. Mr. Perry has joined up with the BentProp Project, an independent group that has indexed crash sites of 29 American aircraft - Corsairs, Avengers, B-24s and cargo planes.

For another, they all voted for John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012. For yet another, they are the most likely places for Republicans to pick up Senate seats, thus taking control of the upper chamber, in 2014. These three facts are related. Much ink has been spilled about the “coalition of the ascendant” that the Democrats have formed, which essentially consists of young professionals, nonwhite voters, and gentry liberals.

A fault line discovered in the 90s is rattling nerves in Southern California, where millions have been living on shaky ground. The 25-mile Puente Hills thrust fault, which slices below Los Angeles neighborhoods, downtown skyscrapers, bridges and freeways, could cause catastrophic damage. A week ago today, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake on the fault broke water mains, cracked foundations, and triggered a rock slide. Experts say a 7.5 would be devastating -- and if the Big One struck, it could kill as many as 18,000 people and displace 750,000. That’s because much of Los Angeles’ infrastructure isn’t earthquake-proof. Bridges aren´t built to modern earthquake

The Unemployment Puzzle:
Where Have All the Workers Gone?

A big puzzle looms over the U.S. economy: Friday´s jobs report tells us that the unemployment rate has fallen to 6.7% from a peak of 10% at the height of the Great Recession. But at the same time, only 63.2% of Americans 16 or older are participating in the labor force, which, while up a bit in March, is down substantially since 2000. As recently as the late 1990s, the U.S. was a nation in which employment, job creation and labor force participation went hand in hand. That is no longer the case. What´s going on?

At parties, Charlie Chaplin could usually be counted on to liven up the atmosphere. Determined to be the centre of attention, he’d mime the parts of a bull and matador or dance with invisible balloons. Then, using his skills as a mimic, he’d pretend to be one Hollywood leading lady after another — in the throes of love-making. Whether he’d slept with them all is open to doubt, but he was incorrigible in making advances to female film stars. He boasted frequently about his conquests, and eventually confessed to having had sexual relations with more than 2,000 women. What did they all

A fortnight ago, as the federal government took to the courts to defend a rule that deliberately burdens the consciences of America’s more religiously devout entrepreneurs, the professional Left adopted the position that companies do not have consciences, griped that a harsh separation of the public and the private spheres was a recipe for the suffering of unpopular or put-upon individuals, and insisted that any links between the activities of an employee and the deeply held beliefs of his boss should be

Despite the violence and uncertainty surrounding this Saturday’s election for a new Afghan President, there’s one positive —Hamid Karzai, the sitting president and the architect of much of the country’s unrest, is not on the ballot this time. But while Karzai must cede power under the rules of the Afghan constitution, the other leader whose mismanagement helped tank Afghanistan abandoned his influence in what he once called “the right war” a long time ago. That leader is President Barack Obama. An outright winner is unlikely

Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there
