Response to TwilightGardener (Reply #7)

8. Hagel's words were "And I think it is an inhibiting factor to be gay

- openly, aggressively gay like Mr. Hormel - to do an effective job."
That sets the record straight.Very straight, very straight indeed, certainly not gay to say such a thing.
Hagel says it is an inhibiting factor to be openly gay, which is the reason he did not like Hormel, you say 'for various reasons' and yet Hagel lists the reasons, he's gay, he's open about it and Hagel thinks that being out of the closet is 'aggressive'.
Obviously he did not like Hormel, and he was very clear about why that is. Openly gay. Inhibiting factor. The man's words are the man's words, which he spoke with professional intention to the press.
As I said in my post, those who support Republicans who say hateful things about gay people when they are not opposing choice or voting for illegal wars should most certainly support their own guy, Hagel. I am a Democrat, gay, pro choice and opposed to invading nations for sport, so I oppose him.
