No One Wants Hagel's Job--Can You Blame Them

Hagel was forced to resign as Secretary of Defense
When it came to ISIS with Obama he was on the different side of the fence
The Secretary of Defense is too important to be held by yes men sycophants
Who would paint the world in Obama’s unreal slants
Hagel may not get his wish as filling his shoes will not be an easy job
Who would want it as defense cuts our fighting ability continue to rob
Panetta and Gates two patriots who served with independence and honor
Telling the President how the world is certainly not a yes man fawner
The party line is that morale in the Pentagon has never been better
Highly suspect when this Administration when it comes to jihad has the military in strict fetters
It is hard to say no to a President when he asks for you to the nation serve
Especially at Defense where the new Secretary will be waging a war to the military preserve
If Obama picks a successor noted for his or her ability to follow the Obama line
As opposed to a Defense Secretary not lacking in backbone and spine
The Senate after investigation of the nominee should reject and not confirm
National Security is too important for a yes man viewing his job as to Obama’s views rubber stamp and affirm.
