Why Rand Paul voted to
Confirm Chuck Hagel as
defense secretary

Yahoo News, by Chris Moody

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 2/26/2013 8:13:36 PM

Only four Republicans crossed party lines on Tuesday to approve President Barack Obama´s defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel, but no senator sparked more confusion than Kentucky´s Rand Paul, a vocal critic of Hagel who nonetheless cast his vote in favor of the former Nebraska senator. Just hours after he had voted against a procedural measure to end debate over Hagel´s nomination, Paul offered his support for Hagel´s confirmation. Paul´s spokeswoman explained that the senator decided to support Hagel because he believes that presidents should get "some leeway" on political appointments, an opinion he has been open about in the past.

Link at #9 works. He voted against cloture. Once they went to the final vote Hagel was in. Pauls vote meant nothing. If he feels a president should have some leeway in his nominees that´s a legitimate position. During the vote Senator Scott of SC was chatting happily with Elizabeth Warren. Is he now no good.

The dems couldn´t have invoked cloture without repub support. This is why they lose it all in 2014. Half of them are dems in GOP drag.

One thing is for sure. The GOP will never again get any support from me nor votes from me.

There is no other branch of government more important than the military who are tasked to protect this country and its form of government. In these perilous times the voters of this country deserve no less than the best possible Secretary of Defense and it is glaringly obvious that Chuck Hagel is not that person!

For Rand Paul or anyone else, voting for Hagel knowing his past statements is failing to fulfill their oath of office and doing a great disservice to their country. America was treated very poorly today.

"Leeway" is something of an understatement when it involves confirming an incompetent and unqualified nominee who does not share American values. One wonders if Mr. Paul really understands what we are dealing with. His comments suggest that he believes what is happening to America is politics-as-usual, that the Obama administration is just another Democratic administration, and that its values and goals are fundamentally American.

So, a president dedicated to the destruction of America should be granted some leeway in his appointment of a like-minded person for Secretary of Defense to help dismantle America´s military because ... well .... just because. So perhaps Mr. Paul´s outburst the other day was just so much posturing, or venting, or indigestion, or whatever. Who knows? What that WAS we may never know. But now we know what it was NOT. Oh, we most certainly know what it was NOT. It was NOT an expression of a firm resolve to vote EVERY vote based solely on his beliefs and principles. On the other hand, perhaps it was, and he has simply demonstrated that his are not mine.

Paul gave the same reason for why he voted to confirm Kerry.
Winning presidents get to pick their cabinets.
The four Republicans who voted to confirm -Paul,
Thad Cochran of Mississippi,
Mike Johanns of Nebraska, and
Richard Shelby of Alabama -
did not affect the outcome.
The Democrats only needed 51 votes
to confirm a Cabinet Secretary.
They already had that with their 55 vote majority.
The 41 Senate Republicans who voted No could not change the outcome, but, they did take a stand in favor of the military by voting against Hagel.

Have you noticed that liberals have no problem making a stand when they are dead wrong? While Republicans have a problem standing up when they´re dead right?

The senate´s role on something like this is advise and consent.If a nominee rubs you the wrong way,just oppose him,giving a thug like Obama his way is contributing to the demise of the country.

Read some of the nonsense around here about Hagel being an anti-Semite and causing the end of America as we know it and you will understand the need for the GOP to shun the hysterical bunker dwellers among us and claw back to credibility after years of reckless foreign policy featuring nation building experiments in Mesopotamia. The way that the hysterics throw around the anti-semite slur, half of the Knesset would be too "anti-Israel" for this crowd. i say the GOP return to the foreign policy of Teddy Roosevelt: speak softly and carry a big stick. If the hysterics didn´t spend countless hours listening to the Talk Radio Show Hosts rant about tangential matters ad nosum, I think it safe to say Hagel´s nomination would have been shrugged off with indifference. There are some many suckers out there that will buy whatever these talk show hosts are pushing: whether it´s Sharries Berries, some dumb book, or the notion that a republican senator and war hero is anti-American... When did conservatives lose the ability to think for themselves?

I´m extremely disappointed in what I thought was MAYBE a different kind of politician.

If senators are just meant to rubberstamp anyTHING 0bama puts into play, then why even bother? Just let him appoint anybody, and don´t waste our time. Just go home. Principle is important.

If Rand Paul was trying to appease the liberals, they´re laughing at him. In the meantime he has slapped and thrown us under the bus.

Even John McCain pulled his hand back from across the aisle for this. Ditto Graham. Greaaaaat work.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
