    He will do fine job. But more than this–USA needs strong public transport system–oil prices are hurting average Americans. Nation needs to Electrify the public transpot system. Obama is 100% right on it. We need consumer spending–oil prices are curbing spending. Cutting SS, Medicare etc lead this nation to further chaos. Cut defense, corporate welfare deductions.

    Brennan speaks Arabic and has lived in Saudi Arabia. Fox "news" is probably going to report he was born and raised a secret Muslim with the goal of infiltrating America's national security.

    I'm sure McCain will attempt to block Brennan as well as Hagel's nomination afterall even Bush never appointed McCain for nothing and there's a reason for that. McCain's temperment has not served him well and picking Palin as his running mate just put a nail in his coffin and sealed it shut.

    Has anyone noticed that Republicans have been ranting about Hagel's remark, the one where he felt US interests should come before Israel's, but have completely ignored his past remarks made about LGBTs.

    Anyone who would work for Obama, is likely to be bad news!
