Most Republican Leaders Stand up to Hagel

Congratulations to Mark Quandahl who on behalf of the Nebraska GOP recognized that Chuck Hagel's dispersions of Sarah Palin's qualifications don't hold water with Nebraska Republicans or for that matter most Nebraskans to begin with. We understand that Mark and the State Party office are getting loads of calls in support of their support for Palin. Needless to say, they aren't hearing any accolades for Senator Sunday Morning Talk Show.

Also, congrats to Governor Heineman and Congressmen Smith and Terry for their comments to the Omaha World-Herald (see today's addition).

Sadly, we note that soon to be senator-elect Johanns chose not to discuss Senator Hagel's unrepresentative comments. It certainly couldn't be because he is scared of Scott Kleeb whose political career in Nebraska is to soon meet its end. We hope Senator Johanns will be less candid about speaking up for the issues Nebraskans support when he goes back to Washington in January.

I just don't understand Sen. Chuck Hagel. He supports his fellow Republican and supposed friend of many years, Sen. John McCain, for president in 2000. Then, travels with Democratic Sen. Barack Obama to the Middle East in 2008....You've got to be kidding me! Now, he no longer supports his one-time friend, Sen. McCain, and issues highly critical and negative statements about his fellow Republicans. Sen. John McCain hasn't changed. He's still the same honorable man he was in 2000. You've got to wonder, what's the motivation here? I think Sen. Hagel needs to cut the charade and stop calling himself a Republican, the sooner the better. It's interesting; in the Sept. 15th World Herald story, on page 2A, it says ....."Hagel said today in a conference call he had received no reaction from fellow Republicans on his Palin comments". No wonder...I mean, I don't know what you can say. You can't say anything!
