    Hume: Obama Believes Hagel Will Be A Counterforce To The Pentagon And Not An Advocate (video)​


    RealClearPolitics
    January 6, 2013


    BRIT HUME: The only thing I can think of is that he believes that Hagel is a kind of maverick, would not drink the kool-aid as the White House may see it on Pentagon, military spending and so on. That he would be a counterforce over there and not an advocate for the armed forces in a way that even Leon Panetta has become.

    You know, the warnings that we're hearing, for example, about the affect of the sequester, so-called, on the Pentagon, the dire warnings, have come from Panetta, not from the White House you'll notice. The President isn't going around warning about that, Leon Panetta is.

    Chuck Hagel on al Jazeera "America needs to stop being the world's bully!"

    Barack Obama, as characterized by Dineesh D"Souza, regards America as a rogue colonial bull elephant loose in a china shop.

    Sounds like we have two peas in a pod here.

    Might I suggest that Mr Hagel take his boyfriend's dick out of his mouth before characterizing America as the "World's bully". We were firmly at peace the morning of September 11, 2001.

    "The American soldier fights, not for the lust of conquest, but to liberate!" FDR. Nothing's changed since then.

    If Hagel turns out to be a counterforce to the military/industrial complex and business as usual at DOD, what's wrong with that?

    Sounds like Obama's already made plans to give the keys to the city to terrorists.

    It's a sad day for this world.
