It's probably dawning on Sens. who didn't serve w/Hagel that he's just not very bright. Exchange w/McCain unresponsive & bumbling.—

Heh. Brit Hume is not alone. That seems to be the consensus, after watching Hagel’s Secretary of Defense hearing.
I don't think Chuck Hagel hates Jews, I just think he's a bumbling idiot that isn't qualified for this job.—

I don't want any Israel hater as SoD, but a bigger problem is Hagel simply isn't up to this job, period.—

Policy disagreements aside, Hagel just isn't coming across as somebody who would be a competent Secretary of Defense.—

As I said from the beginning, the problem with Hagel isn't Israel – it's that he's not very bright, and he's a dick about it.—

I haven't said a single world about Hagel since this whole thing started, but my overriding impression today is that he's not that bright.—

And, to be fair, Hagel is not alone, either.
