    I'm still amazed by that Senate Hearing. Every day that passes, the Gop become more extreme like the Tea Party. The House can't even govern anymore they've become so extreme. It looks like the Senate Gop are catching up fast. Hagel is a good guy, but he can be blunt. I always liked that quality in him because most politicians are hard to pin down. I don't think he harbors any ill will towards Israel at all. He always voted yes when military aid for Israel was needed. He'll do everything he can to keep you safe. He knows that's a high priority for the president. I don't think the Republicans realize how much respect they've lost with the American people since they went Tea Party. Over 60% consider them "too extreme" and "out of touch" in polls we receive. Yet, they party on.
