Republican Senator Richard Shelby finally threw in the towel and announced that he would vote for Chuck Hagel as the new Secretary of Defense. “He’s probably as good as we’re going to get.” Even as he spoke, former Republican candidate for president, Bob Dole, who was a war hero during WWII made clear his support for his former colleague by referring to him as “an exceptional leader at an important time.” It is fascinating how Republicans attack Chuck Hagel who fought for his country while never making a single negative remark about former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Of course, all Rummy did was to have 5,000 men and women get killed.
Lindsay Graham can not cease talking about Benghazi while never asking about the invasion of Iraq. Then again, Republicans initiated that war. Funny, Lindsay has never asked what George Bush was doing when the invasion began. Of course, we know Bush on 9/11 was reading stories to children in a nursery.
