Hmm, with the recent announcement of the resignation of Secretary of “Defense Chuck Hagel, let’s look back at some recent actions and quotes, and see “Whah hahppened LUUCCY?”
Aside from the fact that his “bags” have been packed since DAY ONE…(some cool cucumber slices might help with that). What gives?
Could be this:
I’m a supporter of Israel, always have been.(1)
I have said many times that Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism.(1)
What kind of meanypants hater IS this guy?)
“I told Obama he should pick Biden as his running mate.”(2)
Ding, ding, ding! I think we may have a “winner”!
But, there’s more…
“We must avoid the traps of hubris and imperial temptation that come with great power.”(1)
THAT probably didn’t go over too well with “O-Great-One”.
Ooo, ooo, or could be THIS!
When, in extemporaneous remarks, Obama told reporters that it was America’s policy to “shrink” ISIS down into a “manageable problem,” it was Hagel who was tapped to clean up those comments. Speaking with CNN reporter Jim Sciutto before an audience of students at the U.S. Naval War College, Hagel insisted that America should dismiss Obama’s off-the-cuff statements and focus only on what he said in his prepared remarks. “No, it’s not contain,” Hagel said of America’s policy toward ISIS. “It’s exactly what the president said: ‘Degrade and destroy.’”(3)
DEGRADE and DESTROY! What kind of a bigoted, Islamophobic, hater is this guy??? We can’t be “degrading and destroying” ISIS!
