|Republicans filibuster Hagel's confirmation as Secretary of Defense|
No love for Chuck Hagel in the Senate yesterday;
All of the Republicans decided to delay
Confirmation for their fellow party member 'cause
They oppose the President, no matter what he does.
Tried to send an olive branch; he tapped the GOP,
Asking a Republican to be his nominee.
Hagel, who is only controversial for good sense,
Should have had an easy confirmation for Defense...
But, instead, it's been a struggle from the very start.
2 sides didn't come together; they're farther apart.
They've gone into recess so, for now, Panetta's stuck.
Hope he didn't have vacation plans - He's out of luck.
