Hagel Cloture Vote Fails.... For Now
Confirmed: Fails by One Vote

hagelwater.jpg
Did Hagel's water addiction sink him?
via @billhobbs

Update: Fails by one. My previous 57-43 was in error.

Old News:Fox still has it underway.

I don't really understand how we know it's failed when people are still voting but then again I don't understand a lot of things, like Ashley Judd's visage bouffi.

"Failing cloture" would mean Hagel is blocked, as the vote cannot then proceed to an actual vote on the merits.

I'm gaining confidence in this report because McCain is talking all cocky and pointing out the Democrats filibustered John Tower in 1989.

McCain adds this is just a delay-- they want more information on Hagel, and want the time to receive it. He says he expects to vote for cloture after they get more information (and after they come back from break).

However, given the report that the GOP does not want to be seen as "playing politics," his claim that he "expects" to vote for cloture may be, what's the word, not true.

As a Republican, if you can't defend a No vote on Hagel without going all wobbly, you are a pretty poor excuse for a representative of your State. Jesus. These are the kinds of questions you should be salivating over.

Once again.... the military DOES follow this stuff... and putting this Idiot in charge, will further undermine the already decreasing moral of the US Military.

One of the great untold truths, is that the military often does not fight their country after awhile... you fight for you Brothers in Arms... and your Units... and if lucky... your Commanders...

Well.... Brothers in Arms are now Gay and Female... Commanders, are falling quickly.... and the Traditions which melded a Unit together, are now wimpified, or PC'd out of existance...

Now.... they want to put a Guy in charge of Defense, who is sympathetic to the people you've been fighting for 10 Years?

Posted by: Romeo13 at February 14, 2013 05:07 PM (lZBBB)

144 The problem is some GOPer think that voting for Hagel will give them some influence to stop cuts in home state defense installations or industries. It won't. Hagel has already made it clear that he nothing but a rubber stamp.

148 I have mixed feelings about this. Whomever Obama appoints, real serious damage is about to be done to Defense. And apparently most of the American people are okay with that. Which, if you think about it, is the really, really scary thing. That over half the fuckers sitting around you have decided that defense is no big deal. Certainly nothing worth being concerned about.

The mixed feelings kick in when I realize how fucked this is and how complete our defeat is. Without a shot being fired. Thank you NEA. You've done your job well, dumbing down an entire people in under 2 generations. And then I realize that even if teachers refuse to teach history, reality itself will be more than happy to step in and fill the void. And I think reality will be a hard taskmaster.

It's really cruel to keep harping on her face when she is screwing up her body for the sake of trying to have a child.

That's not it, exactly. While I am sure there are some who will oppose this because opposing it is the right thing to do, many will do it out of pure self-interest. Any R who supported this bill, and even some Ds, would be out of a job after the next election - or earlier.

212 I carry no water for Leon Panetta, but I was amazed when he said what he did about the sequester cuts devastating the military. That took some courage and a willingness to say "FU, I don't need this job that badly."
