Barack Obama somehow managed to nominate a Republican who is further left than himself on foreign policy for Defense Secretary today. Hagel is well known for his anti-Israel and anti-gay statements. Hagel also believes when it comes to Iran, America is the problem.
So he’s a perfect fit for a position within the Obama Administration.
In introducing Hagel today, Barack Obama said he is, “The leader our troops deserve.”
And, you know he means it.
