After his appearance before the Senate, it’s not exactly a great secret that Chuck Hagel isn’t very bright. And apparently not being very bright has been a career for him. Still now that the former “D” student defected from being a Republican to being a Democrat, the D’s have to do their best to make their “D” student into the Secretary of Defense.
“Well, I had a–speaking of discipline–a difficult time staying in colleges. I was never kicked out of one, I never flunked out of one. I went to five different colleges. But I was in and out, a bit bored,” Hagel said.
He had to take English composition three times, and struggled with other subjects as well. “Science, chemistry, some of the math courses I took were D’s,” Hagel admitted in a 2001 interview about his life and career with C-SPAN.
Luckily, Hagel won’t need to understand English, Science or Math to oversee the Department of Defense as it undergoes some of its largest cuts in history.
CNN lists only two colleges on Hagel’s resume–namely, the Brown Institute for Television and Radio in Minneapolis, and the University of Nebraska.
Well I’m sure Hagel did his very best at the Brown Institute for Television and Radio and I’m sure he’ll do his very best job of screaming at aides and doing whatever Obama tells him to as Secretary of Defense.
Hagel has a career of being a dimwit and that’s why he was chosen, so that the real power can lie elsewhere while Obama parades a former Republican as the Secretary of Defense and the media assigns him all the responsibility for the disasters that follow.
