Farrakhan Endorsement Puts Hagel Over the Top in Cloture Vote

Farrakhan praised Hagel as a man who finally had the guts to hate the Jews. Hey, we were all thinking it.

And, as we speak, Republicans are changing their "nay" votes on cloture to "yea." Lamar Alexander's fainthearted fade makes Hagel -- a dumb man -- in charge of our military.

So, Farrakhan carried the day.

But the more I think about it, the more I think the tide has actually really begun to turn in OUR FAVOR.

Ace, I'll write a long piece on this if you want me to put it in the comments. But we act as if all is lost and we don't realize how far we have come. Republicans have TAKEN BACK CONGRESS. They hadn't held Congress since the Great Depression before 1994!!!!!!

As people have repeatedly pointed out, Obama wants Hagel as a cudgel against GOP criticism of his foreign policy. He wants Hagel to be able to wave off criticism with "My foreign policy guy is a Republican and he agrees with me. Not like you eXXXtreme extremists of the G-O-exxxtremi-Pee!"

Born in Tel Aviv in 1928, fought bravely in the Haganah. Loved his family, his birth and adopted countries, finance, skiing, opera, ballet and biking in Central Park. Loved everything about NYC, except the New York Times. Services at Beth El Cemetery (Or Zarua section), Paramus, NJ, Sunday at 11am. Memorial contributions to a charity of your choice.

War hero - check. Farmer - check. Middle class -check. Top of his class at Harvard law - check. Schooled in deep conservative thought (see Claremont Institute) - check. BIG THINGS AHEAD FOR MR. COTTON I THINK.

The reason I am peppy and upbeat, after being despondent for weeks, is I realize the craziness from which we have come. Before Reagan and his judiciary, we were THIS CLOSE to total statism.

But even though it doesn't feel like it, the groundworks are moving in the OPPOSITE direction. Just take the issue of gun control as the prime example. In the 1960s, roughly 65% wanted to BAN HANDGUNS!!!!

That position is laughable now. And unconstitutional. People aged 25 and under oppose an "Assault Weapons" ban 70-30. We are WINNING. And the internet and the FACTS are helping us.

95 Nope, them dems own hagel and own this decision

You mean like Obama owns sequestration? His idea, his signature, his law, but look how the MFM has transmogrified pure facts into 'Boener's Mean, Granny Killing Sequester.'

96 Which will never be reported after the confirmation. Every subsiquent
article will include the phrase "Republican Chuck Hagel ..."



It's time to retire the "Republican" brand when pond scum like Hagel, Frum, Brooks, Cans McCain, Christie and Scarborough claim it.

----------

I'm not giving up.

I doubt that my two senators...Inhofe and Coburn...will vote for Hagel.

Some people forget that there are some good guys in the Senate.
My two senators have been trying to drag the other R's into conservative territory for over a decade.

126 Hagel was an absolute, no brainer, of course he’s not qualified, Man, he’s an idiot, no vote.

If we can’t “win” on a Hagel appointment, we are even more stupid and screwed than I had previously thought.

Posted by: mare at February 26, 2013 12:51 PM (A98Xu)

127 The problem is that when Defense needs someone who can negotiate in a fiscal crisis, we stand aside and let Caligula get his horse in. This isn't going to matter in betwixt Israel and Iran, it matters between Arlington and DC. This idiot isn't going to be the advocate the services need. And, that's what Obama wants, he wants to screw Defense and he just got a helpful village idiot to move the paper.

129 This is coming from a guy who had a Romney sign in the front yard next to an empty chair.

I have reflected and thought deep thoughts. And I think we're WINNING. The newspaper of record isn't "of record" anymore.

The best thing about leftists is that their policies will expose how much they suck. Bottom line, I am not as despondent as I was after the election.

I am determined. and no bcochran, I don't need lines to motivate, although that might help!!!
