No argument from me on that. You should hear Stephanie Miller (daughter of the Miller who ran with Barry Goldwater) talk about how her dad and Barry would have felt about the concept of a Constitutional Amendment to define marriage or ban gay marriage, warrantless wiretapping or the department of Homeland Security. The trouble is, conservative as it would have been understood three or four decades ago for all intents and purposes doesn't exist politically today in the United States. But far too many people who would identify more with old school conservative values vote GOP apparently for lack of knowing what else to do since the airwaves are packed with people assuring them that the Republican party represents "small government conservativism." It doesn't.

    Also JB may I apologize for my earlier rashness in misreading things you say, and welcome you to CE&P. You seem quite fair minded and reasonable.

    The Neocons don't like Chuck Hagel for daring to suggest that bombing Iran or trying to invade every country in the Middle East simply isn't a viable option.

    Strip away all of the hyperbole, and I'm sure we'll find that Ninja is correct here.

    Being a neocon has nothing to do with having one been a leftist, any more than being a neoPlatonist has to do with once having been a cynic.

    Nonsense. No one has advocated invading "every country in the middle east". Who advocated bombing Iran? The hyperbole is on your side.

    He will be confirmed - perhaps with some blood letting or perhaps not

    As for his what 20 year old comments about gays ? If he has recanted or apologized or is not of the same mind now ....... that would make him in the majority of the public no ? If you took a poll on same sex marriage 20 years ago .......... It's proof we have made progress

    Now if he still has those same opinions - well, IMO he should not be confirmed - not that the neocons care about that

    the author of the article below suggests that a Kerry/Hagel (with Obama) triumvirate will NOT be treating Israel any differently - that it's a narrative but not accurate

    Re: The Neocons vs. Chuck Hagel

    For you, Kuli...that's just a real waste of a post. The neoconservatives went wrong with their fervor about about American military strength being the key to spreading democracy in the Middle East but started as an honorable group of academics like Irving Kristol(who was far less excited about "Mission Democracy" than his son William and the present prominent neoconservatives)who though originally from the left pushed back against the New Left's anti-Americanism. A history of neoconservatism shows a much more complex, often very compelling background into the neoconservatives. I would have no problem being sympathetic to a lot of the neoconservative thought had they not gone off the cliff on foreign policy with their uberhawkishness but they were not from the start the Koch brothers type villains so caricatured anong the Democratic left today, but much more richly layered.

    I certainly don't want war with Iran, or anyone else... Chuck Hagel while he does serve at the president's pleasure has a very important voice at Defense. I don't begrudge his move as a Senator away from supporting military actions.... war is steeped in casualties, on both sides and psychologically as well as physically. But as just before WWII when we had the opportunity to smother the rising German threat early on if the world took a tough line on Hitler, and didn't... now we have Iran and their terrorist proxies in the Middle East, with the stakes even higher with nuclear weapons being built not only in Iran, but spreading across the region as others try to acquire the bomb in response. Is Chuck Hagel's vision that of President Obama's? Does he really think any good can come by talking to Iran, talking with Hamas and Hezbollah? Being too anxious to prevent war sure bit Neville Chamberlain in the ass, though to be fair Europe was very weary of war after the horrors of WWI. (Then again, if Germany wasn't forced to pay through the nose after WWI, many of the conditions which led Germans to see a great appeal in Hitler, who was basically a delusional, non descript former corporal and failed artist wouldn't have developed)

    As currently constituted, Iran and their little attack dogs want two things. A region under ultraconservative religious rule, free of Western stylings. And most importantly, a Jew free zone for the area. Which means no Israel...no two state solution. If Obama had given vocal support to the Iranians who were protesting agains what was perceived the voter fraud in the Ahmedinijad re-election in 2009, perhaps the Iranians would have toppled their Islamist tyranny by themselves. Of course he didn't, and in the subsequent Arab Spring was one who for the most part, really did "lead from behind". What honestly caused him to think Chuck Hagel was the best choice at THIS particular time? He served in Vietnam? His independence (at least from the GOP on foreign/military matters)? Chuck Hagel's view just MIGHT be Obama's view after all... and while the neoconservative view as currently constituted seems unnervingly saber rattling and confontational, history has already shown us what happens if tyranny is matched by niceness, by accomodation without expectations of reciprocal good faith. We need more leaders with the temperament and ability to see the big picture, and not pursue policies needlessly confrontational OR accomadating. Knowing the right balance is the most difficult art in statecraft.

    Re: The Neocons vs. Chuck Hagel

    Good Post Sausy. The only thing I see that is glaring to me is that the SoD serves as the military does to act upon the policy and wishes of the Administration. So realistically you should be asking these questions about the SoS not SoD. Defense talks to other nations leaders WHEN we are working together militarily. Not to negotiate a peace or determine how much support we will provide via our military complex. Hagel will not have a direct input into that process. he will have a voice but that voice will be more concerned with reducing the size of a bloated military without sacrificing the benefits of the people who make up that department. He wont have a whole lot of time to negotiate with Iran nor would he be asked to do so.

    That said it is the Obama policy to talk before acting but act they have. The sanctions on Iran are having a crippling effect. I don't know if you recall but the reason the west didn't jump in to Iran with both feet during the questionable elections was because that would have been perceived awkwardly and invalidated the very weak resistance that was in Iran. The same is true for those other situations. Syria in particular. Libya and Egypt we acted differently because of the perception of their people towards this country. We will be a much better nation and have a much better relationship with those democracies once they find their own way. Think of our own country and how we thanked France for supporting us against England. Things aren't very much different when it comes to nationalism and a peoples pride.

    Thanks. I try. Sometimes I am wrong, and need to be pushed to see that. If I may also add, you seem to have some of the more well-thought out and well-reasoned posts here.

    I have honestly tried really hard to see things from your perspective, but I realized that I can't get my head that far up my ass!

    But to be fair, and since I'm not the one who actually said 'every country in the middle east' would the Neo-Nazi-Bible-Thumping-Tea Party-Fascists be okay if we "glassed" just anyone of those countries in the Middle East?

    Based upon your posts in this forum, I look to you as an expert within that ideology.

    If you're so inclined, please help me to understand where YOUR opposition is here.

    For Senator Graham to make the case "THAT THIS IS AN IN YOUR FACE NOMINATION..." 'against Israel' is bullshit of the highest order.

    Truly a mind fuck.

    While we are openly flaming about what we dislike let me just go ahead with a GIANT who gives a fuck that Obama chose people to serve and this time around none of them have vaginas or dark skin. Because a position was diverse once does it require a diverse voice every time there after???? WTF.
