Don't Troll Me Bro!: And there's this gem. "We broke it, now YOU have to fix it."


From Clinton having to fix Reagan's deficit to Obama having to fix Bush's vanity wars, I'm beginning to see a pattern.

Arizona Sen. John McCain, who faulted Hagel and joined his Republican colleagues in their delay tactics, said the responsibility for mending fences belongs solely with Hagel

Witty_Retort: I wish when the first one of these cock-stains comes to ask him for MOAR FUNDING for their state's military base or contractors, Hagel's response would be, "How does no sound?"

He could leave these a-holes out to dry and let their district eat them alive.

/Sessions's and the rest gonna be surprised if there is another round of base closures.
//It is not wasteful spending if it comes to our district.
///Why do they come in threes?

"I would love to give that money to Alabama Senator Sessions, but unfortunately, I have to divert those funds to protecting Israel and stopping Iran's nuclear program.  You understand, I hope?"

Hack Patooey: I wish Hagel would put out a press release about this.


"I've been approached by (n) Senators, who until yesterday were not just questioning my ability to perform the task I've been nominated for, but attacking me personally.  I would like to address them publicly with a big "fark you".  You're like the school bully who gets caught, threatened with suspension, and tries to say "I was just kidding" to avoid your fate.  No, you don't get a pass for this.  Again, fark you."

FTA: "I like Chuck," said Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama - who once said he had "dramatic concern" about Hagel's opposition to nuclear weapons and voted against him on Tuesday.

I'm guessing those are the four safest senate seats the R's have, and they'll justify it by saying they did it to get the Benghazi scoop.

I hope he starts recommending base closures and contract cutbacks in every state that opposed him.

/cut spending and a nice big FU

Corvus: "Chuck Hagel will be confirmed because Senate Democrats stood united behind President [Barack] Obama's nomination of the most controversial secretary of defense in modern times,"

What? Short memory huh?

Not as controversial. You see he was nominated by a Republican Vice-President

"Several GOP senators who were directly involved in the Hagel fight ... said they were willing to work with Hagel but that it was Hagel's responsibility, not the Senate's, to mend fences and prove that he can do the job."

They're psychopaths.  They're just farking psychopaths.  Only someone completely farking deranged could smear a decorated vet like Republicans did, fabricating a terrorist organization to connect said decorated vet to, and then demand that said smeared vet had to be the one to fix the damage caused by said smearing.  Psychopaths, every last one of them.

Considering how John "Daddy got me my military career" McCain bent over backwards to kiss and make up to Bush and his cronies after they just about raped him during his first primary run, I think he needs to slap himself.

Also if I was Chuck, I'd send drones following those idiots and show them how effective he can be.  "Oh, here's a nice high resolution one with you and your pool boy senator..."

Without a comma between "Alabama" and "Senator" it sounds like the money would be going directly to the senator.  In real life, there's probably not a ton of difference between the sentence as written and with the comma added.

vernonFL: I like Hagel if only because people like Bill Kristol and Ted Cruz hate him.


Of those two, I'd stick with Kristol, he's 'crazy' in the sense of absurdly right-wing, so the opposite of what he thinks is going to be consistently right.

Cruz is more crazy in the sense of... well, the literal medical/legal sense of the word, in the sense of being incapable of mental self-determination.  His decisions alternate between conditioned reflexive responses and someone throwing darts at a newspaper, so sometimes he's actually gonna be reasonably close to correct by sheer statistics.

And then probably say the opposite thing phrased as a confirmation/double down five minutes later.

//A little uncomfortable that there's a politician I can call nuts without being hyperbolic nowadays, it's like if Ted Nugent were actually an elected official.

Conservatives certainly seem think that Obama has been responsible for a lot of "the most [adjective] [noun] in modern times".

I'm sure that's because he's such a radical leftist and not anything else, though.
