So Chuck Hagel is confirmed as Secretary of Defense for the United States of America. I don’t have a long, complicated assessment of what will follow, or why Hagel is a horrible choice for mowing my lawn, much less being SecDef.
But contrary to the notes I have received, the blog entries I’ve read, and the speeches I have heard the Senators make on how much he concerns anyone with a lick of common sense, it doesn’t really matter whether Hagel was confirmed or not. It didn’t matter with Secretary of State Kerry either.
Anyone in this post will be implementing Obama’s foreign policy, and that makes for a very dangerous world for some time to come. But it is noteworthy that Hagel acted so foolishly in front of the Senate, like a bumbling clown.
Together with Kerry, Obama has his insane clown posse, and they will do his bidding for an insane clown foreign policy.
I’m glad that my son is out of the Marine Corps. The battle is now for the homeland.
