Log Cabin Republicans Hit Chuck Hagel In 'NY Times' Ad: PHOTO


The Log Cabin Republicans took out a full-age ad in the New York Times today to criticize potential Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel for his comments about gay people not upholding American values and his positions on Iran and Israel, another sign that President Obama's plan to replace Leon Panetta with the former GOP senator may be a non-starter.

Check out the full-page ad AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. The LCR publicly opposing a Republican because he's anti-Gay? Hell must have frozen over.

    And to the LCR: you're welcome (in response to the "thank you" overdue to we liberals who've fought for and won the rights that you, as gay citizens, enjoy).

  2. Ambassador Hormel never accepted Hagel's late and self serving apology.

    He thought the apology for the vicious words were a good thing, but

    What he said was if Hagel is in favor of equal benefits and rights for gay military families, such as housing, pension, insurance and PX, then Hormel would accept his apology.

    Hagel has not and never will accept these conditions.

    Whatever your opinions about Republicans, Log Cabin, Iran or Israel are Hagel has views on Iran and Israel that are very different and actually opposite to President
    Obama's views and the views of Pro-Israel Americans that form a very large and important part of the base of the Democratic

    Should President Obama nominate him many Democratic Senators and almost all Republican Senators will vote no.

    This would cripple the Obama Administration in its second term exactly the same way Clinton was shot down when he tried to let gays serve openly in the military early in his term.

    I don't think that would be good for us.

  3. @John: I wish I could agree with you. Yes, it took Nixon to go to China. OTOH, while Hagel is a Republican, he's too far to the left.
