Yesterday, the president officially named Chuck Hagel as his nominee for Secretary of Defense.
As expected…John McCain who sees himself as highest authority when it come to foreign policy…stated that he has some “serious concerns about positions Senator Hagel has taken on a range of critical nation security issues…”
In 2008, then presidential candidate McCain said that if elected he might offer Hagel a spot in his administration. He said Hagel would make a great Secretary of State.
But then Hagel had the audacity to speak out in opposition to McCain and the Iraq war. Hagel of course was right…and McCain and his neo-con buddies were wrong.
Funny how hypocrisy can worm its way into a situation when one allows revenge to be the source of one’s motivation.
