    And he only "apologizes" years later when it might land him the job he wants. Here's a clue, folks, there's a huge difference between these two "apologies":

    Mommy, I'm sorry I hit Sally yesterday. Now can I have dessert?
    Sally, I'm sorry I hit you just now. Are you okay?
    You need to be able to tell the difference between those two apologies to know why Hagel's "apology" is worthless crap.

      characterize Hagel as a homophobe based on that comment 14 years ago.

      Nor is it reasonable to call him anti-semitic for calling the Israeli lobby, the Jewish lobby, when he has a strong voting record in support of Israel.

      Don't drink the kool-aid.  Realize the timing of these attacks on Hagel's character and why they've gone after him.

      If these are the worst they have on him in such a long, outspoken public life, then they're really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

      We all make mistakes.   This morning I forgot to put baking powder in my muffins.  Does that make me a bad cook?  This morning, yes, but I've baked  plenty of wonderful muffins before, and shouldn't be judged on this bad batch.

        my name when I joined DailyKos!  I wish I could change the capital I to a small i and separate my first and last name.

        Sometimes commenters who disagree with me say that everything I write is not worth reading, because of that mistake.

        The people who control our Congress/government data mine everything anyone who opposes them ever said or did.  

        They have something to humiliate everyone, and the fact that Chuck Hagel stands up to them, knowing how brutal they can be and how they can destroy anyone in their bought and paid for MSM, makes me admire him all the more.

    •  Chuck Hagel lied when (0+ / 0-)

      he neglected to state on his financial statements that he owned the voting machine company that counted the votes when he was elected (including a record ninety-eight percent of African-American voters in Nebraska, a new record).

      Drop Hagel.  Appoint a Democrat.
