Resume enhancement coming. US media oblivious.
Hopefully we can win in 2016 and then clean house in EVERY department of all the low-lifes/criminals that have been the backbone of this Admin.
This is from the London papers, where I also get most of my news that is ignored by the mainstream US “media”. If they report this at all, the Washington Post and New York Times will probably characterize his purported calls to minors as “misstatements”. Or, they will ask Scott Walker about why he didn’t do anything to stop him doing this; Scott Walker had absolutely nothing to do with this odious alleged conduct, but he will be expected to know every detail of it and if he can’t or won’t answer, the Post, Times and networks will chastise him as being unfit for the presidency. In contrast, not a word will be asked of Obama or John Kerry, the bosses of this guy.
The MSM will fight like hall to NOT name the gender of the victim. That means it’s a boy.
HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.
MSM will fight like hall (HALL?) Heck...
The people who seek to serve the nation by achieving a position of power in our government are the most intelligent, moral, and ethical people among us and should be given special leeway from the laws that govern the rest of the country.
He will be on “paid administrative leave” for a couple years, while they “investigate” this, and then be transferred to some invisible position for which he will receive the same pay until he’s 60, and then get 100% salary for life as a pension. And we will be fooled into thinking that he will somehow be penalized for this.
can’t wait to hear how State’s spokeswoman dances around this one, probably making the perp the victim.
Let’s see. If you wanted to degrade US counterterrorism efforts, you’d put a compromised person in charge.
Hmmm...... who nominates and vets such people?
I don’t think you can get a POTUS pardon for a state conviction either....
My computer was hacked !
It was for research !
It’s a right wing conspiracy !
More like fumigate. Then need to clearcut the huge numbers of liberal deadwood that populate all of our government agencies, and have done so for generations. They have created and implemented policies that are ruinous to this nation, and have led to our downfall.
You mean the blond Mary Katherine Gallagher?
One of the big problems GWB had was due to the fact that he left a lot of Clinton people in positions rather than replacing them as he should have. Those people wound up working against GWB and playing politics the whole time.
Was he appointed to this position by Obama?
Yes. I remember hearing an anecdote after GWB won in 2004. A State Dept official rounded up the employees and said ‘George Bush won and he deserves our support’. Yet, under the breath of another State employee was heard ‘and Kerry came in second so he deserves our support’. Paraphrased, but you get the idea. GWB’s ‘Compassionate Conservatism’ really came back to bite him in the butt. Democrats SAY they are tolerant and compassionate, but that’s not even close. They play hardball while we just want to be liked. A useless endeavor for Conservatives when it comes to the Media and Hollywood.
