White House rejects GOP senators’ request to withdraw Hagel

All others I visited are still up with the 15 letter demanding his name be pulled.

Below, what the White House comes back with to their demand.

21 Februay 2013 -The White House on Thursday afternoon flatly rejected a request made earlier in the day by 15 Republican senators to withdraw Chuck Hagel's nomination as defense secretary.

"This waste of time is not just meaningless political posturing—because we firmly believe that Sen. Hagel will be confirmed—but the waste of time is of consequence," White House press secretary Jay Carney said during Thursday's briefing. His comments came in response to a question about the Republicans' letter. read more>>>

My response to in the replies there and on FB:
Especially with the new little 'chickenhawk', just aged out of voluntary military service at 42, the cruz, as he enjoys spitting on our brother Vietnam vets, you do one, he does two, you do us all, and any that support him supports same!!!!
The cruz has put a mark on himself with his outright total lack of Respect with his verbal nixonian spitting on the brother Vietnam vets, it never ends even with the younger now teabags callin themselves republican!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
