Senator Chuck Hagel Has It Right...

This past weekend, Republican Senator Chuck Hagel appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace and said the following about the Republican Party:

"It's not what it used to be. I don't think it's the same today.

Where is the fiscal responsibility of the party I joined in '68? Where is the international engagement of the party I joined, fair, free trade, individual responsibility, not building a bigger government, but building a smaller government?

I think we've lost our way. And I think the Republicans are going to be in some jeopardy for that and will be held accountable. Now, the people of each state and of this country will make their own decisions."

Senator Hagel is 100% correct. The Republican Party has lost its way, and it has hurt our country as a whole in the process.

We do not need another Bill Frist clone to be our next U.S. Senator. It is time for a change for the better.

Harold Ford Jr. has the plan to get things working agian. It is time for a new generation of leadership.
