VIDEO: Sen. Bob Corker wonders about Chuck Hagel's "overall temperament... numbers of staffers coming forth now"

Has anyone else ever heard anything about Chuck Hagel's temperament before today? This is the first I've gotten wind of the issue, and from the way George Stephanopoulos responded, he was surprised, too. But on “This Week,” GOP Sen. Bob Corker, ranking member of the Foreign Relations Committee, seemed to think we should be concerned about it:

"... Just his overall temperament and is he suited to run a department or a big agency or a big entity like the Pentagon."

"I think there are numbers of staffers who are coming forth now just talking about the way he has dealt with them. I have, certainly questions, about a lot of things.”

However, despite the alleged complaints from staffers, Corker doesn't necessarily feel this could disqualify Chuck Hagel.

He went on to say:

“I begin all of these confirmation processes with an open mind.  I did have a good relationship with him.  I had a good conversation with him this week.  But I think this is one where people are going to be listening to what he has to say, me in particular … especially some of the positions he’s taken generally speaking about our nuclear posture.”

Has Bob Corker ever wondered aloud about fellow Senator John McCain's "temperament"? Just asking.

George Stephanopoulos: "Thank you to Ann Romney. Sorry we nearly blew you up."

As Stanley Tucci said, "This show's a disaster, I'll tell ya!"

Extrapolating that to the Romney campaign is just too easy.

Via CNN:

As Mrs. Romney was being introduced to the show, standing alone in the "GMA" studio kitchen, the Republican candidate's wife noticed her famous Welsh cakes burning on the griddle. [...]

Standing by Mrs. Romney and Stephanopoulos a pot started to overheat, appearing to spew hot butter onto the kitchen.

"They burned my Welsh cakes too!" Mrs. Romney said. "I don't know, my plane almost goes down, now I almost get burned with butter" [...]

Stephanopoulos said "GMA" has reached out to first lady Michelle Obama to appear on the show and she is considering it as she is working out her schedule.

Stephanopoulos:

"Thank you to Ann Romney. Sorry we nearly blew you up."
