The Last Of The Millenniums

Just because it always has been, doesn't mean it always will be

But it’s NOT Republican McCarthyism – ‘A filibuster fit for McCarthy’

THIS is what then Senator Chuck Hagel actually said in 2006 :

‘As Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) pointed out, what the nominee had in fact said, during a Senate speech on the 2006 Lebanon war, was this: “The sickening slaughter on both sides must end.”

THIS is what 2 REPUBLICAN Senators re wrote history and claimed he said :

“Senator Hagel has accused Israel of quote ‘playing games’ and committing, quote, ‘sickening slaughter,’” Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) said before Tuesday’s confirmation vote, which had been delayed 12 days by a Republican filibuster’.

‘Minutes later, Jim Inhofe (Okla.), ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, repeated the allegation that Hagel had claimed “Israel committed ‘sickening slaughter.’”

‘Inhofe had a different view. Filibusters of presidents’ Cabinet nominees happen “all the time,” he argued. As for the insinuations, he said, “Nobody is impugning the integrity of former senator Hagel.”
