The process continues once you provide the requested information. This is the case in virtually every instance you are seeking financing. And I'm sure you agree to the idea of background checks on John Q. Public, if anyone wants to buy a gun. Well, I'm not affected by your car-buying decisions, really. Nor do I care about a law-abiding gun owner having that right to own a gun. With Hagel, we're talking about Defense Secretary, and that DOES involve me, you, and every other American. Don't you think this is a reasonable process? What concern you more is the Obama administration's continuous acts of stonewalling access to information which may or may not help Hagel's confirmation. Aren't our elected leaders entitled to take the proper time and diligence to make such an important decision? Something tells me you're a "go team" guy, and you haven't really thought much about it. That's why you try to slimeball Republicans. I guess that's okay, being a free country and all. It would just be refreshing if some of you would learn to properly engage in civil discourse. I'll suggest to any liberal the following challenge: listen to Mark Levin's audio from 2/13, and see what Marco Rubio had to say. After you've done your homework, come back and let's talk. But you won't, and you don't, because you're not as open-minded as your bumper stickers claim you are. Peace, prosperity, and Conservative Rising! Mark,

You'd think selecting a republican could have made this easier? The GOP is so negative, nothing will do. Mitzy refused to show his ill gotten gains to American voters. Could this be revenge? McCain(fellow Nam vet), will even support him. Enough Hageling already. You’d think selecting a republican could have made this easier? The GOP is so negative, nothing will do.
