Florida's Republican Member Of Congress Goes Up Against Secretary of Defense Sec'y Hagel; 1 to 0 (Miller "Submitted")

One minute of Hagel to set the flavor.

Do you want to see and hear why Congressional approval ratings are hovering around 10 percent? How about a quick viewing of the very reason any Administration has to be over-the-top careful about critical information with certain members of Congress.  

While we elected people to serve in our legislatures, we must also recognize we do not always elect the bet. It is also important to always know that some committee members use opportunity to seek information with corresponding answers with a flair for 'showboating."

During today's House Armed Services Committee Hearing, House of OZ (Tea party laden House of Representatives, commenced his opportunity to pose questions with a question for the ages.
"Mr. Secretary, you keep saying we can't get the facts from Sgt. Bergdahl until he gets home," the congressman said. "Have you ever thought about going to Landstuhl and talking to him there?"
According to Talking Points Memo: 
"Senior defense official said last week that Bergdahl, who is being held at a U.S. military medical facility in Germany, is too fragile to answer questions about his alleged desertion."

Recall the US Congress has an approval rating of less than 15 percent. Miller's questioning is an indication of why the ratings are in the pits.

In January, 2013 Republicans in Congress approval rating, according to Gallup.  

Of course, we are five months into the year and Republican and Democratic approval ratings could have head North for the southern perch you see in the graphic above. Sure!
