I find this assessment of Chuck Hagel to be ironic, given the administration he is a part of.
The New York Times broke the news early Monday morning, reporting that Hagel was resigning “under pressure” and was quickly confirmed by administration sources.
According to NBC News, senior defense officials said that Hagel was forced to resign.
“He wasn’t up to the job,” one senior official said.
Hagel took office in Feb 27, 2013 with heavy praise from Obama when he was first nominated.
Let's be honest -- many Obama appointees were not "up to the job."
You know, like the ones who couldn't file their taxes correctly.
Or the one's who couldn't comply with subpoenas.
Or the ones who couldn't administer the law impartially and instead targeted political opponents.
Heck -- let's not forget the one who declared that it really didn't make any difference who screwed up and was responsible for the deaths of American diplomatic personnel.
And then there was the first selection made by Obama -- Joe Biden -- who isn't up to the vice presidency, a job that is the moral equivalent of Mr. Irrelevant in the NFL draft.
To be honest, we've seen for six years that Obama himself is not up to the job.
So why pick on Hagel?
