Former Senator, Chuck Hagel, underwent his confirmation hearing last week and it was, quite clearly, the worst performance of a nominee to any post I have ever seen.
It was abysmal.
Many, trying to be nice, say he was unprepared.
Those being honest say he is simply either not qualified or is, in fact, incompetent.
And then there is the socialist brain-trust.
NPR ran an article, “Hagel’s Hearing: 7 Things We Learned” and in it, they whine about the hearing being nothing but political and weep tears of disgust over how those mean, nasty and oh-so-partisan Republicans were bullying poor Chuck Hagel.
Perhaps NPR has, inadvertently, made a sound point.
It was political.
After watching and listening to Hagel during last week’s confirmation hearing, one thing jumped out at me and I’m sure, many of you as well.
What ARE his qualifications to become the Secretary of Defense???
According to Hagel himself…
“I volunteered for the draft and then volunteered to go to Vietnam after I received orders to go to Germany.”
