Both sides don't like him...

From the Left...

Will Chuck Hagel Apologize for His Anti-Gay Voting Record?


And from the Right...

Chuck Hagel and the 3D-Test of Anti-Semitism

I think Obama might've picked him to say "Look!...I'm reaching across the aisle!" and grabbed the first Republican available...Unfortunately, he didn't look to see if the guy was a douche...

I think he's a bad choice and doubt he will be confirmed.

Is this barrak's version of bipartizanship, nominating somebody neither side will vote for?

He will be the latest distraction to divert attention from Benghazi and Fast and Furious. Seems Holder has a court date coming up soon and Hillary is recovering from her head bump although she may have memory loss.

And that means it also might NOT...

Anti-gay is irrelevant when it comes to Secretary of Defense...

Being an anti-Semite is HUGE though...
