It appears and sounds like the so-called Liberals want DRAMA over the upcoming Chuck Hagel confirmation hearings
Maddow takes her cues from Andrew at Buzzfeed
Rachel Maddow thinks gays have a right to stop Hagel from getting confirmed. She knows damn well the Secreatry of Defense doesn’t set policy. The SoD works for PBO. These whiney ass LGBTs think they can tell the president who to pick for his cabinet. The shit is out of hand.
Of course the president sets the policy for his cabinet, and to think that PBO would nominate Chuck Hagel with the intentions of him going against set policy regarding DADT or DOMA is LUDICROUS.
SG2: Have you ever heard them say ONE thing about Bill Clinton signing DADT & DOMA into law? Hell no, but they blame Pres Obama because he didn’t act fast enough. BTW…if she can’t accept Hagel’s views have changed then she can’t accept anything from PBO. At one time, President Obama said he believed marriage was between a man and a woman and he did’t think gay marriage is a civil right but now his views have changed.
Ametia: Maddow followed the Buzzfeed crowd with this segment last night. She wants the drama and is setting the stage for a confirmation showdown. She wants her LBGT views to go on the record before the hearings.
SG2: Here is the video PBO speaking about gay marriage from a few years ago.
PBO in 2004: “I don’t think marriage is a civil right.” He said that gay people have rights that need to be enforced, but marriage was not among them.
Flashback: Obama Believes Marriage Between a Man and a Woman
SG2: Funny when African Americans complain about the discrimination & atrocities we’ve suffered, we are told to move on. But 14 yrs isn’t long enough for people like Rachel or some white gays when someone disagrees about gay marriage. Hell, slavery was brutal and barbaric. We are still suffering from the effects of it some 200 or so years later but we must move on but let someone disagree about gay marriage and it’s unforgivable..even if it happened 14 years old. Do you see how these bastards are? Ugh
There’s nothing 100% progressive with President Obama, and for Maddow and Co. to NOT see the BIG PICTURE here, when it comes to this President’s nomination of Chuck Hagel, just boggles the mind. This DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT is trying to gain control of and reshape AMRERICA’S military. America’s not looking for “WARS WITHOUT END.” At least this administration’s goal is not to keep us in endless chaos and war. But this appears to be what the whiney, purist lefties want. First they BTICH & MOAN about DRONES, and now about a pending SoD’s former stance on gays and his views on abortion.
What exactly do folks want; PERFECTION; 100% PURE LIBERAL Appointees? GTFOH
How does a democratic POTUS go about doing this? By nominating 3 Vietnam war veterans to serve with him. Men who have been on the frontlines of WAR, who won’t send our men and women to fight never-ending wars, to lose limb and life, for what?
Pray tell what the fuck does Chuck Hagel’s past views on abortion and gays have to do with his ability to serve as Secretary of Defense; when we’re trying to draw down troop and get them the HELL out of Afghanistan, when we’re trying to scale back on defense spending and reshape our military and our national security creds, when this Administration has already burried the dead, beaten horse of DADT & is now working on DOMA.
THE POTUS IS PRO CHOICE, HIS VIEWS HAVE EVOLVED ON GAY MARRIAGE. Chuck Hagel can more than hold his own in the confirmation hearings. SO…
MOVE ON, MADDOW & CO.
