So how many nominees of barry’s have quit?
(1-4) Governor Bill Richardson for Commerce Secretary:
Under federal investigation for pay-to-play like blago – donors for state jobs routed through his own charities. Unable to be cleared by the FBI for confirmation.
How was he going to be president? Why was he allowed to run? The DNC knew – so why was he allowed to run? To dilute the field in Iowa to give barry a chance for his bused in Chicagoans to win the caucus for him. Same thing as adulterer John Edwards…who has finally admitted it is his baby.
(2-3) Tom Daschle for Secretary of Health and Human Services:
$128K unpaid taxes, reportedly made $5.2M off the industry he would be charged to clean up. His wife is also a serious lobbyist.
(2-3) Nancy Killefer for first ever Chief Performance Officer :
$946.69 in unemployment-compensation taxes for her household help. At least there no illegal immigration problems like Tim Geithner’s.
(2-13) Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH) for Commerce Secretary #2
I have found that on issues such as the stimulus package and the census, there are irresolvable conflicts for me. Prior to accepting this post, we had discussed these and other potential differences, but unfortunately we did not adequately focus on these concerns. We are functioning from a different set of views on many critical items of policy.
(3-10) Charles Freeman for National Intelligence Council Chief:
CNN: The former Pentagon official and diplomat had faced criticism from both Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee over his lack of intelligence experience, and some prior headline-grabbing remarks, particularly with regard to Israel. He also drew controversy over a statement that he believed the Chinese government did not crack down quickly enough on pro-democracy demonstrators in Tiananment [sic] Square in 1989.
And who sailed through no problem?
Yep. Madame Secretary Hillary Clinton
