50/50: Number Assigned to Chuck Hagel's Chances of Withdrawing from Consideration, and Also His Verbal/Mathematical IQ

But bear in mind this is just one guy's estimation.

Still, he's a veteran security reporter, so I guess he has some basis for making this eye-catching claim. (Which really isn't even a claim: If you say something's 50/50, how can you lose? If Hagel doesn't withdraw, you just say, "That was the other 50%.")

Ricks says that Hagel "didn't do well" in his Senate hearing last week, and didn't seem "interested in the job."

"He has the votes, but not much else," writes Ricks. "His big problem is that no one much wants him running the Pentagon.... Democratic support in the Senate appears more dutiful than passionate."

Ricks says Hagel's position right now is a "problem." He writes, "The prospect of a Hagel regime at DOD is a real problem now because the next SecDef will need to do two things: Work with Congress to reduce the defense budget thoughtfully, and work with the military to re-shape the military to make it relevant to future conflict. At the moment, Hagel appears to lack the political capital to do the former, as well as the intellectual appetite to do the latter."

He barely has the intellectual appetite for cookies.

I also have to cut and paste this gem: The word moron, along with others including, "idiotic", "imbecilic", "stupid", and "feeble-minded", was formerly considered a valid descriptor in the psychological community, but it is now deprecated in use by psychologists.

Actually, that's worrisome.

Consider:
If the Hagel nomination goes down, the TFG will nominate another. How loud do you think the calls will be for swift confirmation ("Our Military NEEDS!!!! a Secretary of Defense!)? I'm thinking pretty loud. And how loud do you think denouncements of "Republican Obstructionism" will be if Republicans try to hold up that nomination, too? I'm thinking really f*cking loud.

Both of which mean that TFG probably feels confident he can get someone even more like him in that position, if Hagel fails to be confirmed.

Most madmen plan for months or years but when they act they rapidly burn out.

Someone who stayed rational enough to be skittish could be a threat for weeks or months and rack up a pretty big Random Murder count.

On the other hand, he seems obsessed with particular people, it's the current cops in LA who are shooting random people (headdesk).

This 50/50 crap is zany on the media's part the GOP doesn't block anyone but the worst of the worst such as Susan(inferior to Condi) Rice who essentially lied to everyone and muddied the water on an act of war.

And how loud do you think denouncements of "Republican Obstructionism"
will be if Republicans try to hold up that nomination, too? I'm thinking really f*cking loud.

171 The refueling overhaul of the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln has been postponed by the Navy — another manifestation of Congress’s inability to pass a 2013 defense funding bill.

The ship was scheduled to move in mid-February from Virginia’s Norfolk naval base to Newport News Shipbuilding to begin a $3.3 billion, three-and-a-half-year overhaul. The work, called a refueling complex overhaul (RCOH), is a major mid-life job that renews the ship to serve another 20-25 years.


Any significant delay in beginning the Lincoln’s RCOH will ripple through years of carrier scheduling. A carrier undergoing RCOH typically spends about 18 months in drydock at Newport News. As soon as Lincoln completes her drydock period, the dock is scheduled to receive the carrier Enterprise to defuel its reactors and prepare her for eventual dismantling. By the time that job is complete, the George Washington, the next carrier to undergo the refueling overhaul, is scheduled to arrive.

Across those three jobs, the dock is scheduled to have a carrier in it into early 2018 for all except a handful of weeks.

I had to skip a few paragraphs once it got into the Obama-worship, but it's a reasonably well-crafted diatribe. The shout-out to the knee surgeon was particularly touching near the end...lol

203 Lawmakers blast pullback on health records
By Patricia Kime - Staff writer
Posted : Thursday Feb 7, 2013 17:09:18 EST
Top lawmakers on the Senate and House Veterans’ Affairs committees are irked by a Pentagon and VA decision to scale back plans to create a single computer system that would manage service members’ and veterans’ medical records from recruitment to grave.

Committee leaders issued joint statements Wednesday faulting the departments for failing to produce the technology after spending what could be as much as $1 billion of the $4 billion total estimated cost.

Don't even get me started on this one. And I bet hagel has no idea what I am talking about

215 193 Akula51,

Anytime if Lemmon is editor...

I'd suggest you go back and read it all, I know it is tortured and a burden but it helps to know precisely who your opfor is.

He saddens me because in a way he is very much the left's victim. He is a good decent person with a very damaged cognitive palace where his use of race hatred was affirmed and weaponized by the left. I'd bet money he has uttered the phrase, "I could vote for the republicans if people like Mitt weren't such anti-poverty aid racist haters."

This guy is very much the left's pet.

I'm sure you're aware but as I was instructing my son on the mechanism be sure to remind the kids that shortcuts and skipping steps is not the key to speed, process mastery and altering your mindset on conflict is...you speed up the entire cycle not blow through the steps.

230 We used to get rather large snow storms all the time in Chicagoland, accompanied by high winds.

Had one of around 24" with steady 40 mph winds. No fun, but we just stayed indoors. My husband was out of town during one, and it took me about three hours to snow-blow our driveway and the sidewalks on our corner lot. Invariably, a damned snowplow would come along and pile snow at the foot of our driveway, and sometimes take out the mail box. Grrrr.

Obama has not damaged America, he has helped her. And no, the racist right morons are the biggest threat to our country since its creation!No, he isn’t destroying America. No, he isn’t a traitor. No, he isn’t evil– at least not compared to other legitimately evil men like Dick Cheney and Karl Rove. Yes, he can be impeached– if you can prove that he’s committed an impeachable offense. No, he’s not a Muslim– and if 22 years in Rev Wright’s church can’t convince you, you’re a frickin’ moron. No, he doesn’t hate America. Yes, he is a liar. He’s a professional politician; lying is in his job description. No, he’s not a usurper; he was legitimately elected BOTH times.You disgusting azzhole racists have called this man Saboteur in Chief, filthy Muslim, communist, socialist, dictator, gay, anti-America, un-American, evil man, (since when did we start referring to our President in this manner?) yet he has been re-elected by majority electoral votes as well as popular vote. He was dealt a very difficult hand in 2008 but fulfilled many promises — Bin Laden is dead, creation of jobs, our troops are coming home and his greatest promise fulfilled — health care for all Americans. And he accomplished this while having to listen to constant doubts about his birthplace and his religion.Obama complain? Because I didn't see him complain. The only ones complaining are the tea baggers.Racism under the thinly disguised vale of how much they don't like his politics. Thankfully most people have brains these days and he was re-elected. The people who make jokes at his expense really says more about them than anything else. If you don't like his politics then provide logical arguments against it, not cuss like a sailor, make up silly words based around his name or make him look like a chimp... it denotes low IQ.Republicans have become more Racist during Obama but Democrats and Independents stay the same. The problem for Republicans is that younger White Voters are increasingly more tolerant and Minority Friendly and vote for Democratic Party, they are just cheering this guy like any other a-holes who attacks the president because it applease racists and bigots like you!Dr. Ben Carson, a fine, innovative neurosurgeon, grew updirt poor in Detroit became the chief of pediatric neurosurgeon at Hopkins, .Many of us aspired to be like him when I was in med school not long ago. The birth certificate, and electronic medicalrecords okay, but give a child HSA account!. What would 5k in HSA do for achild who needs a neurosurgeon?. Nothing.. Imagine, a child injured, comes toER, ct scan, labs, the work up in the ER alone will deplete any amount of moneyin HSA, long before you place a call to neurosurgeon. Stick to neurosurgery Dr. Carson..Is Barack Obama a Narcissist?---No, not any more then any politician as all have to be a little narcissistic to be successful.First off, what do you think of this man, Dr. Carson?---I think he sounds like a successful doctor and one who cares about his patients though I am unsure why he would get into politics.Is Barack Obama a racist?-----Not at allIs Barack Obama a "monster"?-----No, no humans are monsters as monsters only exist in cartoons.IS Barack Obama a destroyer?----No, except I think his policies destroy human life through abortion which infanticide.Is Barack Obama a dictator?---Not at all, a dictator would not have free and fair elections and leave after two terms.Is Barack Obama a Communist?----No, he is a liberal Democrat but not a true communist.Is Barack Obama a Marxist?----No, he has liberal beliefs but not to a marxist point.Is Barack Obama a Socalist?----No, he is a far left Democrat so I can see the comparisons to socialist but I wouldn't say he is as far left as being a socialist though maybe borderline socialist policies.Can Barack Obama be impeached?-----No, he has done nothing illegal that I know of.Is Barack Obama destroying America?-----No, though the economy is being damaged by all the reckless government spending.IS Barack Obama "the Great divider"?-----No, Richard Nixon was the closest we had to that.The right wing is afflicted with cognitive dissonance, either from listening to tales of birtherism, WMD's, death panels, Shirley Sherrod, landslide presidential victories or the new black panthers. Maybe it's from the fumes of their confederate flags, but the 4,000 people that Bush killed because he lied about WMD's doesn't bother them. The fact that all republicans voted against money earmarked for security in our diplomatic outposts will never enter their minds. They haven't been exposed to that information yet. The conservatives tried to grandstand against Secretary Clinton and came away looking like the knuckle draggers they are. These racist, misogynist, homophobic politicians really do represent their constituency. They are diaper-wearing adulterers voting for the same.Who are you hypocritical racists to attack this President for doing the same things Bush did, you racists scream bloody murder over the death of four Americans under Obama, but you are slient when I comes to hundreds and thoushands of Americans dieing under Bush!But when a black man does it....Calling the POTUS a POS and a fraud seems to the usual calling call for you right-wing racists and bigots like you!
