Hapless White House Blames GOP ‘Badgering’ for Disastrous Hagel Implosion

Posted by on Feb 01, 2013 at 1:00 pm

No, it’s not Obama’s fault he nominated an unqualified anti-Semitic creep as Defense Secretary. It’s the GOP’s problem, dummies.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney praised Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel’s performance during the confirmation hearing and attacked Republicans for their questioning of the former Nebraska senator.

“I think Senator Hagel answered the questions appropriately and did a fine job,” Carney told reporters, lamenting that critical media coverage of the hearing has focused on “a series of questions that I think by any estimation largely represent badgering by the questioners.”

Asking questions now equals badgering. They’d prefer the typical lovefest normally accorded Obama nominees. How dare anyone put this chump on the spot about his own statements!

    Sheesh. If someone thinks that questioning in the confirmation hearings is stressful badgering, what does this writer think will happen if Secretary Hagel is actually dealing with the Iranians? Or even the Israelis? Binyamin Netanyahu knows how to badger.
