Others Beginning to Recognize Hagel's Unfitness to Serve

Apparently, we aren't the only one to question the fitness of Chuck Hagel to be the next Secretary of Defense.   U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) apparently feels the same.     Frankly, we hope that she never gets the opportunity to question this failed un-re-electable, un-trustworthy, un-reliable failed Nebraska U.S. Senator. 

Frankly, Hagel is psychologically unfit for this position.  And he has shown that numerous times.   We've already mentioned him calling former U.S. Congress candidate form Nebraska Ally Milder a 'f--king' instrument of AIPAC.   We may not have mentioned his egotistic firing of a staffer for calling him 'Chuck' in front of one of his fellow senators.   We may not have mentioned his mandate that all staffers stand when he entered the room or his office.

Oh and of course, as we've mentioned before Hagel couldn't even make up his mind to announce or not announce whether he was running for president after calling a national press conference and bringing virtually every media source to Nebraska to share in the embarrassment of Nebraskans when he made a decision not to announce what he intended to do.    And, of course, after that he was a national joke and lost any momentum he might have had (mostly in his own mind) to run.

Of course all of this goes beyond his post traumatic stress disease that seemed to have risen to the surface with the Iraq war.  One can only begin to imagine how this will affect any decisions that a competent Secretary Defense might be required to make.  His disease appears to have neutered him when it comes time to making logical decisions on defending the United States.

Yes, we owe Hagel the gratitude he deserves for defending our nation but we don't owe the nation a Secretary of Defense unfit of doing his duty because of mental and psychological affectations.... 


From the Daily Caller:

"Several senators expressed concerns about the potential nomination of former Republican Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense, including rising Senate star Kelly Ayotte. TheDC's Jamie Weinstein reports:

"New Hampshire Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte says she is 'concerned' with the positions of potential defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel on Israel and Iran, and that she intends to question him 'vigorously' if he is nominated by the president. 'I appreciate Senator Hagel’s record of public service,' Ayotte told The Daily Caller in an emailed statement Tuesday. 'While he has not yet been nominated, I am concerned about his prior positions with regard to Israel and Iran,' she said. 'If he is nominated to serve as Secretary of Defense, I intend to vigorously question him on those prior positions.'"

But to Hagel's defense came Obama's top Jewish surrogate during his presidential campaigns, Robert Wexler."
