Hagel Confirms What We All Knew: GOP Should Address Problems, Held Captive of Raw Partisan Paralysis

Add this to the list of many examples posted here of the Republican admissions that their party is dead. Chuck Hagel sounds the alarm to the blind, deaf and dumb right wing extremists.

Here's the play by play from CNN:

As his Senate career nears its end, Republican Chuck Hagel isn't holding back.

"We are educated by the great entertainers like Rush Limbaugh. You know, I wish Rush Limbaugh and others like that would run for office," a sarcastic Hagel continued. "They have so much to contribute and so much leadership and they have an answer for everything. And they would be elected overwhelmingly. [The truth is] they try to rip everyone down and make fools of everybody but they don't have any answers."

Hagel also faulted Washington lawmakers for "raw, partisan, political paralysis."

"The American people don't like what is going on… they want us to start doing what leaders are expected to do, address the problems, find some consensus to governing. Get along. There will be disagreements, sure… but in the end we can't hold ourselves captives to this raw, partisan, political paralysis."
