Nation's Former Top Dog Republican Shares Views on Chuck Hagel.

It's so odd to hear Senators Inhofe, Cornyn, Cruz and a small passle of other GOP Senators state that Chuck Hagel doesn't enjoy Republican support. That's simply not true. Senators Shelby, Johanns, Cochran, and probably others will vote for Hagel next Tuesday. I think end of the day Senator Lisa Murkowski may do so as well.


But the zinger is that decorated World War II veteran, former Senate Majority Leader, former GOP candidate for United States President Bob Dole has endorsed Chuck Hagel:


Chuck Hagel has spent his entire life in service to his country. He volunteered to fight in Vietnam and did so bravely, side-by-side with his brother and earning two Purple Hearts. He served as Deputy Administrator of the Veterans Administration for President Ronald Reagan and was President & Chief Executive Officer of the World USO.

He represented the people of Nebraska in the Senate with honor for twelve years and was a coauthor of the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill. Hagel's wisdom and courage make him uniquely qualified to be Secretary of Defense and lead the men and women of our armed forces. Chuck Hagel will be an exceptional leader at an important time.

1. Nice of Bob Dole--I will never forget him in the Senate chamber a few months ago, there to support

the UN Disability Treaty, only to be ignored and almost shoved out of the way by Repub Senators on their way to vote "no". It's a different party, Bob, and they don't care about veterans like yourself anymore.

2. The GOP has not been the party of Abe, Teddy, and Ike for three, may four,

decades: today it is the party of extremism, obstruction, and the big lie, the antithesis of all our founding principles, a party which funnels vast welfare to monied interests in every conceivable and some unimagined ways, all to the detriment of we the people. P.S. The GOP in reality is really much worse, but I didn't want to go off the deep end.

3. When R congressmen met four years ago and agreed to obstruct everything the President does,

no matter how beneficial for the country, they became terrorists, as far as I'm concerned. So I've been off the deep end for a while.
