  •  I can't disagree with you here (4+ / 0-)

    Brennan's appointment is a straight out F.U. to Liberals everywhere. That is really a disappointment.

    And I totally agree with this:

    Appointing a republican to this position is just wrong.  AND it again makes Democrats look weak on defense of our nation.
    I mean (as I said in the diary) WHY, OH WHY could we not find a Democrat to do this job? I get that President Obama likes the guy... but so what, this is not what I voted for.

    NOW, of course knowing this I would still have voted for President Obama, but, to say that I am disappointed in this pick is an understatement. If I wanted Republicans and their policies in the cabinet... I would have voted for them. I don't and I didn't!

      How many Republicans have nominated Dems as SOD?

      None.

      And Dems just perpetuate the stereotype by continuing this trend.

      The only counter-argument I've seen that makes even remote sense is that given Obama wants to cut defense spending it may be more easily accomplished by a Republican than a Dem.  But then you have to believe we will actually do some substantive defense cuts (which I don't believe we will).

      Brennan is indeed the worst of the two picks.  Reprehensible that he was selected.

        ever.  Politicians of both parties can't get elected without them.

        I can't say I know where Hagel stands on reducing the DOD spending.

      reasonable republicans (voters, that is, not many elected officials.)

      Brennan's appointment is a straight out F.U. to Liberals everywhere.
