Saw McCain badgering Hagel

I can't believe he was bullying Hagel over the Iraq war. Thanks John McCain for reminding me (and everyone else) about the Iraq war. The senseless war championed by republicans and based on lies. Did McCain think he'd win points with people by pointing out his support for a surge that killed and injured more people in a war we should never have begun?

Why would republicans want to remind people about that?

It ticked me off.

6. Hagel seemed To handle it well

Really made me uncomfortable though. Bullying is never attractive.

3. McCain has never gotten over the fact that he got his ass kicked to the curb by a blaaaaa..

a blaaa, blaack man. In spite of that I think Hagel must have practiced like Obama did for the first debate--by sleeping--a lot. Too any fumbles. He knew the type of questions that they were going to ask. WHy didn't he memorize a line or two. NOt his best day certainly. However to your point, yeah McCain needs to admit that Irag was the worst military decision since Vietnam.

5. Why is McCain still on that committee?

I thought he was losing his prior committee assignments through term limits.

7. Those were my thoughts exactly while watching it. McCain has NO room to talk. However it was

 

disappointing that Hagel wouldn't or couldn't answer the question. And we're the ones paying for these wars.

8. McCain is just a mean miserable rightie

That if given the reigns of power would have had us fighting wars in Syria,Iran and probably N.Korea.
I was waiting for Hagal to come back with a snappy retort along the lines of hey John you want to talk about incompetence?at least i didnt get my ass shot down and end up spending the war in a prison camp.

9. It's funny because just in 2000,

those two were cool with each other and closer than a magnet on a refrigerator. Back then, McCain said Hagel is well-qualified for the position. All it took was Pres. Obama giving Hagel his approval in order to change this. McCain believes that his job for a living is to not be a Senator, but to oppose everything Obama is in favor of, no matter what.

Seems to be all the republican party is about actually. Opposing President Obama.

11. I want McCain to lose his next election. I don't want him to retire, I want him to

be completely disgraced. He's such a sore loser he makes Ann Romney look good by comparison.

12. I admit that would be be entertaining

were he to go out that way. He is already such a disgrace. A sore loser, too.
I shudder when I think how close he came to being our president and elevating crazy Palin to VP. YIkes!
