A new line of questioning on President Obama’s nominee for Defense – Chuck Hagel. This is Sen. Bob Corker questioning whether Hagel’s “overall temperament” is suited to run the Pentagon. When asked what he meant, Corker mentions a number of former “staffers” of Hagel who he says are coming forward “talking about how he (Hagel) has dealt with them.”
Cryptic. It will be interesting to see how this unfolds.
It’s growing – the number of Republicans ready to cave-in to Barack Obama on raising tax rates. Here is Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker explaining why he is ready to do so. But these Republicans know in their hearts it is not the best thing for the country. The tax increase won’t even put a dent in the nation’s debt problem. They know it. Massive entitlement spending is the problem, and no one wants to face up to it.
