Press secretary Carney says ‘we see momentum behind Hagel’s nomination.’ With a straight face!

No, seriously! He said it.

How on earth did he say that with a straight face, after that train wreck of a Secretary of Defense confirmation hearing? Did he not read the babbling”Zen of Hagel”? Dana Bash reported that senators were shocked by his bumbling ineptitude (which was totally hilarious in and of itself).


This sane Twitter user doesn’t see momentum; he sees something else.

Bingo. Hagel could very well be confirmed, but not due to any “momentum.” Nor even for any trust in his competence to serve, sadly.

    Jay’s poised with a laser like focus on all that momentum….FORWARD!!!!!

    You know, if you’re free-falling from 20,000 feet, you have LOTS of momentum. it’s not necessarily a good thing (as in, if you don’t have a parachute).

  • IronButterfly

    If he is seeing momentum then he needs a seeing eye dog.

  • Marcy Cook

    Yeah Jay, I see dead people, but it doesn’t mean that I am sane.

    His face doesn’t look all that “straight” to me.

  • TocksNedlog

    “Momentum” like that boulder rolling towards Indiana Jones?

    Former Sen Evan Bayh was saying this week on Fox News Sunday that he was fairly certain Hagel would be confirmed. I remember thinking, “If that’s true, why do they bother holding hearings at all?” Such a farce.
