President Obama nominates Republican Chuck Hagel as defense secretary and conservatives are fuming. “Chuck Hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense, would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense towards the state of Israel in our nation’s history,” Sen. Lindsay Graham said. Tonight, Ed welcomes former Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) and former Vice Admiral, U.S. Navy, and Richard Wolffe, Executive Editor, MSNBC.com and MSNBC Political Analyst, to sort out what Hagel’s nomination could mean for our nation’s defense.

Obama accepts Susan Rice's withdrawal from consideration as Sec. of State. Wait just a darn mininute!!! MSNB--Hee-Haw's Richard Wolffe--and other doofi at MSNB-Hee Haw-- calls her a victim of a republican "witch hunt" against "people of color". If so, why would Obama cave under the "racist" attacks against her?! Doesn't the first black president, re-elected with 95% of the black vote, have an obligation of stand with her and battle her "racist" enemies? Can't have it both ways, Lefites. If she is being attacked soley becasue of her race (and gender), why is it acceptable for "Lord and Savior" Obama (per Jamie Foxx) to go a.w.o.l. in this fight against racism? Didn't AG Eric Holder say, when it comes to race, America has been "a nation of cowards". What does this make Obama?

Good morning everyone. How far will Republicans go to protect the top 2% of wealthiest Americans?

I have a question: Richard Wolffe of MSNBC claims that Republicans are on a racist witch hunt for going after some of President Obama's inner circle: AG Eric Holder, UN Ambassador Susan Rice and Valerie Jarrett. Did he ever consider that Congress has laid Fast and Furious at Holder's feet? That Ambassador Rice told FIVE Sunday talk shows that Benghazi was not terrorism and Jarrett is just a tool? Maybe Wolffe is a racist because he hold "people of color" to a lessor standard than he holds whites to?
