Hagel Saga ‘Emblematic of Everything That’s Wrong with Obama’s Management Style’

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel's recent resignation is yet another example of how the White House has failed to manage the Department of Defense.

Many have pointed the finger at Hagel, but David Rothkopf said Sunday that "the reality is the problem is in the White House."

Rothkopf and fellow on This Week guest Bret Stephens agreed that Obama's management style led to Hagel's failure.

The administration’s handling of Hagel were "emblematic of everything that's wrong with Obama's management style," Stephens said.

Whomever Obama nominates next, the candidate will have to struggle along with the president.

"I think it's going to get worse," Rothkopf said. "It's going to be very tough last couple of years for the president."
