Gibbs, a close advisor to President Obama, said during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press” that Hagel’s performance was “disconcerting.”
“The disconcerting thing for anybody that watched it is he seemed unimpressive and unprepared on the questions that quite frankly he knew was coming,” Gibbs said.
Even as he criticized Hagel’s performance, however, Gibbs said pointed questions asked by GOP senators, including Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) like were “totally superfluous.”
Obama, Hagel and Kerry, the triumverate of fools.

Menedez’s successor in the House, Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ), believes that he may be the victim of a “Cuban conspiracy.”
“I won’t even be surprised if somehow the Cuban government is involved in this to try to damage Bob Menendez because he’s been so steadfast against the Castro government. He’s been a critic all his political life. I would not be surprised if they are behind some of this stuff, some of these allegations. The Dominican Republic has a lot of relationships with Cuba.”
