  •  Make a stink...how about making the Republicans (10+ / 0-)

    actually filibuster?

    Oh wait...they punted when they had the chance.

    They deserve it.  And at least this is Hagel, who I could care less about, as well as most others. I actually hope they force him to step down.

    1.  It will show them how their appeasement was ridiculous.
    2.  Obama will have to nominate a dem.
    3.  Republican obstruction will be front page news...the way it would have been if they would have reformed, but not ended the filibuster.

    I am am literally rooting for Republicans to keep this up for the time being.

      GOP wants to filibuster SecDef? Let 'em! Leave the top spot empty and beat the idiot GOP over the head with it at every opportunity!
      GOP wanted the sequester? Give it to 'em! This is our best and only chance to reign in an out of control "defense" budget!
      So, with no SecDef and greatly reduced military industrial complex spending maybe we can stop invading other countries and slaughtering people needlessly and start spending money here at home on education, health care and research and development!
      Screw the GOP! Give 'em what they demanded and make the fuckers eat it!
