What's worse, Obama had just had Susan Rice get run through the meat grinder because Obama has no, zero, relationship with the Hill. Republicans or Democrats. His own supporters don't have a clue what Obama's end game is or what is going on at 1600. When Hagel stumbled and blood hit the water the R's were rightfully emboldened and went on the attack. And then took the guy apart and then commenced to corpse ****ing his ass.

This thing was done before Hagel went to the hearing. Once you get a chance to take a bite out of a cabinet nominee you take it. Sailing him through gives him strength. Sending him in weak means he is politically damaged and costs Obama time and political capital. Having rice and Hagel go down just is good for R's.

What is stunning is the party that invented Borking and has no qualms destroying political careers with lies has the temerity to get indignant that the feeding frenzy began in the hearing when their pick shit the bed.
Follow the money, bud.

The money going against the Hagel nomination came heavily from pro-Likud sources.

Care to take a bet, then, since you claim to believe Hagel will fail?

Let's make a bet. I get your signature for the rest of 2013 if Hagel becomes SecDef.
