Video: Senator Ted Cruz Slams Hagel For Agreeing With Statement “The US is the World’s Bully”

Via The Washington Free Beacon, this tense exchange between Ted Cruz and Chuck Hagel may turn out to be the death blow to his nomination

He scorched Hagel for agreeing with an assessment that the United States is the “world’s bully”.

“You explicitly agreed with the characterization that the United States is the world’s bully, and…. I think the United States has spilled more blood, more treasure standing for freedom, liberating people across the world — and to go on al Jazeera, a foreign network, broadcasting propaganda to nations that are hostile to us and to explicitly agree with the characterization that the United States is the world’s bully –I would suggest is not the conduct one would expect of a Secretary of Defense.”

Here’s Cruz’s entire Q & A from the hearing:

  1. Geez, was that brutal or was that brutal? Hagel was always a arrogant, self indulged hypocrite when he served in the Senate, who loved resting on his past laurels. He loved poking his finger in the Republicans eye any chance he got and twice on Sunday if he could. Cruz was brilliant he setting him up and taking him apart. McCain must’ve had stains in his shorts going after Hagel and settling the score he owed him, though the hypocrisy was rampant and yet delicious.

    During the Republican Presidential Primary in New Hampshire, McCain was asked by a Reporter who he would consider for Secretary of Defense if he were elected as President. He answer:, “oh there are many qualified people to hold that position, Chuck Hagel comes to mind.” Funny how a endorsement of another candidate changes things from some point on, isn’t it?

    Too bad some of these panelists weren’t available or hadn’t taken a dose of testosterone when they questioned the bitch last week, who asked “what difference does it make at this point, what happened?” After she delayed testimony herself for 4 months.


  2. Well lady, you know you’ve hit the big-time when the indoctrinated trolls start showing up.
    I’m disgusted that both of my senators voted for Kerry. Hopefully that won’t happen with this sack of cheap chinese hammers.


  3. Contrast Senator Cruz’ conduct and courage with that of Boehner’s, Mc Cain during the 2008 election cycle, and the other R’s who have failed us time and time again. Senator Cruz is actually my representative and he actually represents me, what a concept! I seriously pray he is protected from the powers that be in DC that seem to corrupt good people once they get there.


  4. Sorry Ron old boy, I’d have to put my 2 Stooges, Udall and Bennet in contention for the worst senate delegation-absolutely worthless, business/energy hating, “climate change” loving, tax raising idiots.
