Why Did McCain Rescue Hagel?
American Spectator, by Aaron Goldstein

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/17/2013 2:15:19 PM

Why on earth did John McCain just rescue Chuck Hagel’s nomination? Why did he go on Meet the Press this morning to say that Chuck Hagel was going to get confirmed as Secretary of Defense? McCain argued that Hagel had the votes to be confirmed and that he didn’t want the process to be delayed further. But if that is the case then why did Bob Woodward go on Fox News yesterday to say that Democratic Senators were calling the White House to ask when Hagel was withdrawing? Now I doubt Woodward would have dropped that tidbit if there wasn’t sufficient discord

Comments:
But, we knew he would, didn´t we. That´s a rhetorical question.

We all know that McCain will stab this country in the back when the opportunity arises.

He has done so again.

It seems to me McCain always says what he thinks the media wants to hear, but rarely what he thinks himself.

McCain didn´t rescue Hagel. He´d already been rescued. A number of Republicans said they´d change their votes on cloture after the recess. Alexander, Corker, Blunt, even Graham and Ayotte have stated so. I´m sure Hatch will change from voting present to aye.

McCain just saved the GOP. Obstructionist hysteria would have overtaken the media. The GOP would have backed themselves in a corner had they filibustered a President´s nominee, and at a crucial time when amnesty, gun grabbing, carbon taxes, and budget showdowns are all on the table. I´m not convinced McCain is doing this for the right reasons, but at this point I´ll take what I can get. Onward, out of the desert!

Personally, I thought they tried to turn McCain into a Manchurian Candidate, back when he was held, AND tortured by the Viet Cong. I think he still reacts to a coded phrase, that essentially turns off his fire and makes him docile and compliant.

And I think the VC passed that largess onto their friend John Kerry and his friends, the Democrats.

There haven´t been so many reporters chasing a story in Trenton, N.J., since Washington crossed the Delaware. But compared with the methods the Democratic Party is using now to take down its opponents, Chris Christie looks like Little Bo Peep. Gov. Christie´s hyper-political aides ordered traffic jams in neighborhoods near the perpetually backed-up George Washington Bridge to annoy the mayor of Fort Lee. And they may have canceled meetings with the mayor of Jersey City because he wouldn´t endorse Mr. Christie. Oh my. The Christie bonfire has burned for a week.

Wendy Davis’s campaign spin on her fundraising numbers is impressive. She wants you to know that she raised $12 million to Republican Greg Abbot’s $11.5 million. What she is hoping you will ignore, and which much of the press will ignore, is that Greg Abbott raised his $11.5 million in three months while Davis raised her $12 million in six months. Update: This original press report states that Davis took 6 months and Abbott took 3 months. Upon further review, it appears Davis raised $8.7 in six months through two separate accounts and Abbott raised $12 million in one account, both

The left’s clairvoyant wonks are pleased with themselves this week. The Obama administration recently announced that 24 percent of enrollees on the Obamacare exchanges have been between the ages of 18 and 34. That was enough for Ezra Klein to herald “The death of Obamacare’s death spiral” in today’s Wonkblog. The death spiral was the prediction made by many that not enough young people would dive into the Obamacare risk pools, leaving them filled with high-cost elderly patients and driving up premiums. So are we moving in a positive direction? Megan McArdle is skeptical: Of course, the ratio is mostly what we’re

RALEIGH, N.C. — President Obama is touting 2014 as a “year of action,” but it might just as easily be called the year of “measured expectation.” Contrary to the predictions of many in Washington, Congress is on the verge of passing a spending bill that restores funding to some of Obama’s top priorities, which were undermined by deep cuts that took effect last year. Obama will have new money for early-childhood education and infrastructure spending, although the sums involved are far less than what he says is necessary to create jobs and narrow inequality.And on Wednesday, Obama came here to promote

Corruption, malfeasance, and complacency represent the stories we heard about the State Department regarding its actions in 2012. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blamed a fatal attack on an American ambassador and three other Americans on an anti-Islamic video then inflaming the Middle East. Her response when questioned before Congress? “What difference at this point does it make?” It still makes a lot of difference, and not just because of Benghazi itself. There is a larger culture of corruption at the Department of State. Newly declassified transcripts released by the House Armed Services Committee show that the State Department, at least internally,

What an astonishing situation is shaping up in the US Senate. The chamber is controlled by the Democrats, yet it looks like it is nearing a veto-proof majority for an Iran sanctions bill that amounts to, among other things, a vote of no confidence in the leader of the Democratic Party, President Obama. The bill’s aim is to approve in advance a return to sanctions against the Iranians if they fail to meet the agreement that Secretary of State John Kerry and the Europeans (or do I repeat myself?) just inked in Geneva. If the Iranians fail to keep their word,

From New York to California, local governments are spending taxpayer dollars to sterilize female deer, but critics say the approach is a misguided, ineffective and “incredibly expensive” approach to thinning out the herds that has become a suburban scourge. While some communities have used lethal means to curb the exploding population of deer, which roam backyards, destroy gardens and wander into traffic, others have taken what they see as a more humane approach — tranquilizing female deer and removing their ovaries. It´s expensive: The town of Cayuga Heights, N.Y., spent $35,808 to sterilize a dozen does last month. A year earlier, the

Chief executives just don´t use the power of government to exact revenge on ordinary citizens for what they take to be political insubordination. To put this in context, imagine what it would be like for a presidential administration to close down national parks in order to intentionally inflict pain on people trying to visit them. Or if some other administration had the IRS target individuals and groups from the opposing side. Thankfully, things like that never, ever happen. 2.) Wait a minute,

Her condition, to her, was not entirely good news. “I weighed out the pros and cons,” she said. “But I didn´t want to have another baby.” Susan asked her gynecologist about getting an abortion, but the doctor said she didn’t perform the procedure.

And I hate it,” the producer said. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.” Mr. Weinstein then revealed his secret project about the gun rights group. “I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,”
