Obama angers his base
Posted by Staff
The Hill reports:

President Obama has angered his base on a wide range of issues over the last month, even as he rides a political high after his victory over congressional Republicans in the fiscal-cliff fight.

The nomination of former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) to head the Pentagon disappointed liberals and women’s groups hoping for the first female Defense secretary.

It was also a double blow, of sorts, as Obama picked a fight with Republicans over Hagel after avoiding a row over the possible nomination to secretary of State of Susan Rice, an African-American woman who is the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Facebook Fark Furl
