Obama is pushing for this nomination and if he succeeds every American must sensibly ask themselves how much this "compromise" will cost? It'll be another excuse to buy off the "values" of his base with tax dollars or more taking of American liberties. Watch and learn:
A pro-lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender group issued a statement today urging President Barack Obama not to nominate Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense.
â€œGetEQUAL strongly opposes the potential nomination of Chuck Hagel to become the next Secretary of Defense. Hagel has, time and time again, taken every opportunity to lambast and denigrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans, and the Cabinet is no place for this kind of disrespect,â€ writes the chair GetEQUALâ€™s board Tanya Domi.
Hagelâ€™s recent apology for his insulting comments about the nomination of James Hormel as U.S. Ambassador to Luxemborg were hollow, politically expedient, and nakedly gratuitous. The Defense Department has made important strides toward creating an inclusive Armed Forces, but has miles left to go â€” nominating Hagel to lead the Defense Department would be a staggering step backward for the LGBT community and an upheaval of President Obamaâ€™s past support for the LGBT community.
