  •  I don't like Hagel. I didn't like him when (0+ / 0-)

    he was in the Senate. I know he was a war hero, and I honor him for it. But, through sheer happenstance, I knew several war heroes who knew each other, and when all was said and done, they didn't like each other, either.

    I don't like David Brooks either. He is a jerk.

    And the President has the right to pick whomever he pleases.

    But I cannot forget that he picked Rahm Emanuel. I didn't like Rahm Emanuel either.

    Might and Right are always fighting, in our youth it seems exciting. Right is always nearly winning, Might can hardly keep from grinning. -- Clarence Day

      But I like the idea of defense cuts. I'm just appalled by Brooks' argument that defense cuts = weak military, and that the cuts are forced by Medicare spending, as opposed to rabid militarism and greed.

      The civil rights, gay rights and women's movements, designed to allow others to reach for power previously grasped only by white men, have made a real difference, and the outlines of 21st century America have emerged. -- Paul West of LA Times
