Senior Arizona Senator Grills Secretary of Defense Nominee On Iraq War Surge
Some Save Jerseyans aren’t too keen on Senator John McCain, largely because of his “maverick” tendencies on “domestic” issues ranging from immigration reform to campaign finance reform.

You can click here to read Chuck Hagel’s opening statement if you’d like, but after viewing that video, what else do you need to see? This guy’s been wrong about every major foreign policy decision since the Cold War.

Translation from D.C. speak to real world English: “Yes, it worked.”
