“If he is nominated, it is hard to imagine the circumstance I could support the confirmation. If the president is bound and determined to proceed down the path despite Hagel’s record is troubling on the nation of Israel and not a friend to Israel and in my view the United States should stand unshakable to Israel and he has consistently advocated weakness with respect to our enemies and nation of Iran, opposing sanctions over and over. The job of the Secretary of Defense is to be a serious credible strength and deterrent and unfortunately, I think weakness in a Secretary of Defense invites conflict, because bullies don’t respect weakness. ” – Sen Ted Cruz (R-TX)
