Gorelick Appointment Would Prove Obama Just Another Hack Pol

Jamie Gorelick has a career in government which has clambered down the ladder from failure to failure---and the NYT, a loser publication hemorrhaging thousands of readers a month naturally trumpets her candidacy for Attorney General.

But even the NYT has difficulty ignoring a couple of elephants in the parlor:
Carries as baggage: Her work at Fannie Mae, which had to be bailed out by the government in September as part of a $200 billion deal. Ms. Gorelick left the company just as it was coming under attack for huge accounting failures. She has also drawn criticism for her role at the Justice Department, in which she allegedly created an intelligence “wall” that hindered counterterrorism agents in the years before the Sept. 11 attacks. Conservatives called for her removal from the Sept. 11 commission, but her fellow members rallied around her and said critics were distorting her record. The criticism grew so heated that the F.B.I. investigated a death threat against her family, and President Bush had to intervene personally to stop the Justice Department from releasing sealed reports involving her. Some conservative bloggers have already begun trying to derail Ms. Gorelick’s possible nomination as attorney general, pointing to her experiences at both Fannie Mae and the Sept. 11 commission.

Heh, "allegedly" as in a crime against the USA as it turned out, with Al Qaeda operatives finding the CIA/FBI turf battles leaving many intelligence boundaries unguarded. Ask the families of the 3000 9/11 victims if a total incompetent like Gorelick should be REWARDED for her lack of concern for American security. An Obama appointment would indicate that the naif young dude in the Oval Office hasn't got a clue about national security.

Although Gorelick appears to be the candidate of the wholly anti-American NYT, sensible candidates such as Janet Napolitano now serving as Governor of Arizona or Tim Kaine, Gov. of Virginia, would be interesting choices and avoid the stigma of Clintonian meddlesome interference in protecting the country from enemies who are still out there.

GWB never gets credit from America haters for defending the country from follow-on attacks after Gorelick and her Clinton-crowd cronies left the door open for a catastrophe like 9/11. Gorelick is just another grasping lawyer who should be prosecuted herself for the RICO crime spree malfeasance that the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac meltdown revealed. Instead, the soon-to-be-defunct NYT is touting this greedy eff-up for AG!

This is crazy. Is obama even considering any republicans for his staff? The liberal illuminati hailed him as such a bipartisan candidate and he has yet to hold to his word. Let's see it Obama, be a man of your word.

I'm not shocked at all. The left-wing illuminati promised a lot of things they haven't made good on. We should have known that putting Republicans in their cabinet wouldn't happen.
