38 percent of Americans oppose Hagel nomination

According to a new survey:
A new poll has shown that 38 percent of Americans have an unfavorable opinion of Chuck Hagel as President Barack Obama's nominee for secretary of defense.

The poll, conducted by Rasmussen Reports during the month of February, showed that, in contrast, only 28 percent of Americans held a favorable view of Hagel, while over one-third of Americans, 35 percent, believed that they lack sufficient knowledge to render an opinion.

"This poll, even allowing for the fact that one-third of respondents admit that they have insufficient knowledge on which to form an opinion, shows clearly enough that a large proportion of Americans are concerned about Chuck Hagel's qualifications, competence and policy positions,” said National President of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) Morton Klein.

"This is not only because of his disastrous views against sanctions and possible military action against Iran; his call for negotiations with terror groups Hamas and Hizballah, his views that the U.S. is the world's bully; his statement that Israel has committed war crimes and a 'sickening slaughter' against Arabs, is 'risking becoming an apartheid state', that Israel has control over the State Department, and the 'Jewish Lobby' causes Congress to do stupid things, but also because his performance at his confirmation hearings clearly showed someone who was incoherent, contradictory and mistaken on major issues of policy,” said Klein.
We have to hope this'll help stop his nomination, but we probably shouldn't hold our breath about it.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I do not know if I'll ever be as good as him, but I do my best.
