This guy is a clown never the less
A clever clown? Exactly how so?
Hagel was a Republican in good standing who was recipient of two Purple Hearts. How many do you have?
He then made a fortune when he co-founded Vanguard Cellular and later served as president of the McCarthy Group, an investment banking firm. All of
this before serving in the U.S. Senate (1997–2009).
This is scandalous? No. What got this guy in trouble was that in 2002, Hagel, along with 76 other Senators, supported George Bush and voted in favor
of the Iraq Resolution, yet later withdrew that support and spoke against the Iraq war when he discovered Bush lied to America in order to invade
Iraq. Later in a book he stated he also believes that the Iraq War is one of the five biggest blunders in U.S. history.
Hagel was super critical of George W. Bush's foreign policy, calling it "reckless." Is anyone going to disagree with Hagel? Hell no. These days
Republicans have put a taboo on even mentioning Bush's name, out of embarrasment.
Other than this, this guy was a model Republican, voting in 2001 in favor of both the USA PATRIOT Act. and then reauthorizing expiring provisions of
the Patriot Act in 2006, as well as the House introduced Protect America Act of 2007. This is what you call a "Clown"
If Republicans don't like this guy because he would hold Israel accountable for their actions, they had better reevaluate their position.
