Chuck Hagel shredded by Sen. Ted Cruz: a “sickening slaughter”
In confirmation hearings Thursday, freshman Senator Ted Cruz effectively shredded the president’s nominee for Secretary of Defense — Chuck Hagel. It was embarrassing, for Hagel, to watch the questioning on television given his inability to explain his way out of a wet paper bag.
Perhaps the most poignant questioning of the day was from Sen. Cruz. If you are undecided on Hagel or are unaware of his prior statements, it is imperative that you view these videos. We submit that it is not possible to support Hagel’s nomination after viewing the videos from yesterday’s hearings and understanding the angle from which Sen. Cruz expresses his concern.
Sen. Cruz demonstrated what a person who loves the United States of America — her freedoms, liberties, responsibilities, connection with Israel — should have said all of these years. Instead, we got Chuck Hagel.
With his evasion of the questions today and what thought leaders have called one of the worst confirmation hearings in modern history, will his nomination be confirmed in the Senate or will Republicans have the courage to block him?
