Obama Defense Pick Chuck Hagel in 2007 Speech Likened United States to a “Schoolyard Bully” – Video 11/8/2007

More Chuck Hagel, this time a speech he gave in 2007 at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, in which he referred to the United States as behaving like “a schoolyard bully.”

“Rather than acting like a nation riddled with the insecurities of a schoolyard bully, we ought to carry ourselves with the confidence that should come from the dignity of our heritage…from the experience of our history…and from the strength of our humanity…not from the power of our military.”

Unbelievable. The United States has been the greatest force for good in the history of the world. We do not carry ourselves “with the insecurities of a schoolyard bully.” And Barack Obama thinks this is the best we can do for our Secretary of Defense.
