Hagel’s position/non-postion on containment/non-containment…or something

This video makes me want to shake my head really fast like they do in the cartoons and hope that what I’m hearing makes sense after that. Just watch:

So what’s his position again?

    Hagel did his best Admiral Stockdale impression today..

  • Well, when you have a career built upon piling one shitty thing atop of another, what once was containable soon becomes less so. At some point the line not only blurs but it gets a might sticky as well.
    Hagel spent today trying to fling his own excrement from hands caught in the honeypot of alleged “service to country”.

    • When you tell the truth you don’t get mixed up because you don’t have to keep all your lies straight.

      Much like Zero:

      Birds of a feather.

  • Joe

    Was he drinking before the hearing?

    He was so unprepared it was pathetic!

    At least he could have tried

    Hopefully he will be declined this very important post

    • notsofastthere

      Joe, I’m glad he didn’t try. We got to see who Hagel really is.
      The whole Obama entourage are low life, undesirable blobs of flesh. That’s transparent enough for me.

      • Joe

        Right On !

        By the way – You have a great “handle”

    Couldn’t your next door neighbor, preacher,or you do a better job than these clowns?

    • notsofastthere

      Unfortunately, these clowns run our lives and the security of our nation. We ARE in deep trouble.

    How high does the tower of poo get until it falls over?

    Guess with the media and the Demos acting like flying buttresses it takes a while.. if ever.

    Here’s a concise condensed reduction of Hagel’s testimony today:


    • williamm

      That made a lot more sense than what Hagel said.

    • Joe


      Another politician in the making!

    • sjmom

      Adorable baby and probably knows more about the Middle East than Hagel.

    • Cindy09

      I understood she wanted a banana!

  • lambfound

    A vote for Hagel is a vote against America and its allies.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Look at all of the clowns in the Senate. They tabled Paul’s amendment to prohibit F-16s and Abrams tanks from being sent to Egypt. That should tell us all we need to know about them. Hagel’s confirmation is close at hand.

  • WhiteGuy2

    It is my position! That I didn’t have a position on these matters until a position became thrust upon me in the form of a burrito supreme grande, and Barry Obama. Now if you would excuse me, I have pressing business to attend to.

  • WhiteGuy2

    Hagel is the Russian spy version of the Pink Panther.

    • Joe


      MUST watch!

  • sjmom

    If anyone votes of either party votes for Hagel after this then I think we need to demand mental health checks for every senator. He’s incompetent, has no idea of what he’s talking about and I wish someone had shown him a map because I doubt he would even know where the Middle East it.

    Stop allowing dual citizens with loyalties to other countries to modify our laws via public officeOur government is run by people such as the anti-American senator Dianne Feinstein whose loyalties rest in other countries, namely Israel. Demand the administration to prohibit the election or appointment of dual citizens into public office, where they may propose, modify, or criticize laws as they see fit, and likely with an agenda which suits their preferred country of citizenship. Our government should be run ONLY by full American citizens with no formal loyalties to any other country, allied or otherwise.



    …my position is turn out the lights AMERICA the party is over for with these CLOWNS in charge of your country , one day you will all wake up to one HELL of a HANGOVER .”

  • Cindy09

    By the way, is Obama choosing Hagel because the latter was CEO Election Systems & Software?

    See for youself:

    “It turns out that Hagel’s former company, Election Systems & Software/Diebold now counts the votes in most elections.

    And it turns out Hagel’s voting machines have been embroiled in investigations of hacking and vote-switching that continue to this day.”


    • Interesting.

    • waytngtym

      Beyond imagination. Any chance Levin could spread this westernjournalism story around, at FOX for example? for viewing far and wide?

  • Will Senator Cruz really put a “hold” on Hagel’s nomination? I think any Senator has that power, then Obama would have to find another guy!

  • PapaLouie

    In his opening remarks, Hagel said, “No one individual vote, no one individual quote, no one individual statement defines me, my beliefs, or my record.”

    In other words, he believes he has the right to flip-flop at any time on any issue without being held responsible for his previous statements or votes. How convenient.

  • Like I said: he’s like a tired, worn out drunk. Incoherent. Mushmouth.

    Just think: in Star Wars, Lord Darth Vader was holder of the title “Supreme Commander of the Imperial Forces”, second in that power only to Emperor Playtime, himself. Now think for a moment: this punch drunk is the guy Obama thinks is the right guy to be his Darth Vader.

    I’d feel safe laughing in both their faces.

  • NYGino

    Vaudeville is back!!!

  • Not only did Hagel look unprepared and foolish, he looked stupid too. THAT is NOT the image you want to project to the world for your Secretary of Defense. Just think about how the powerhouse and intellect Donald Rumsfeld was compared to this jerk. You may not agree with what Rumsfeld had to say, but NOBODY could ever say that Rumsfeld was dumb or didn’t know what he was talking about. You COULD, however, say that (and more) about Hagel. Hagel really thinks that he’s just some sort of figurehead and that the Pentagon will be run out of the White House. If he really thinks that, then he knows nothing about the Pentagon, military defense, or strategic thinking. And if that’s the case, then it would literally be a crime making this moron Secretary of Defense.

    Talk about making a mess of the situation.

    Even the Obama administration is not happy.

    On Iran, Hagel Muddles the Message

    Hagels testimony reminds me of Yogi Berra in this AFLAC ad:
