Obama and Hagel: two peas in a pod

It seems the President and his embattled Secretary of Defense nominee, Two-Buck Chuck Hagel, are two peas in a pod, but perhaps not in the way one might expect.

While it’s reasonable to expect Hagel’s national security positions to line up with Dear Reader, it also seems Hagel, like the President, is a serial non-discloser.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

… Republican senators continued to call for additional disclosure of material from Hagel.

Among the requested materials: the full text and details of several speeches Hagel failed to report to the Senate Armed Services Committee that have since been uncovered.

Fox News Channel on Tuesday reported on two speeches Hagel failed to disclose as requested, including one given in 2008 to the annual conference of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC).

I’ve heard of AC/DC, but who is the ADC? Per the Free Beacon:

The ADC is a controversial nonprofit whose conference last year featured speakers prominent in the Boycott Divestment Sanctions movement targeting Israel. The 2012 conference also featured an award presentation celebrating an author whose essays include one titled, “Zionism is a form of racism.”

The ADC also has not disclosed the full video of Hagel’s 2008 speech, while refusing to release its tax records as required by federal law.

However, the President still far exceeds Hagel in the area of non-disclosure with a plethora of hermetically sealed items including standardized test scores (SAT/ACT/LSAT), transcripts, college papers, college applications, financial aid applications, medical records, law client lists, selective service registration, etc.

Barack Obama: leading the way, setting the example.

Most transparent Administration ever.

Keep goin’ conservatives. It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll.

I tell you folks, it’s harder than it looks…

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
