More: Former GOP Senator Chuck Hagel: Republican Party Has An Astounding Lack Of Responsible Leadership | ThinkProgressFormer GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel (NE) cant muster any praise for his Republican colleagues behavior in Congress over the past few months. In an interview with the Financial Times, Hagel blasted GOP leadership for their irresponsible actions during the debt ceiling debacle, noting that I think about some of the presidents weve had on my side of the aisle Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr., go right through them, Eisenhower they would be stunned.
Disgusted with the debt ceiling negotiations, Hagel called it an astounding lack of responsible leadership by many in the Republican party, and I say that as a Republican. Does anyone not believe whats happened here the last couple weeks in the market was not a complete, direct result of the lack of confidence that came out of that folly, that embarrassment? he asked.
