BUSH SWIFT BOATS CONGRESS

by Basheert @2:13 PM MDT

From Think Progress:

After previously "pulling" Sam Fox's nomination as Ambassador, Pweznit D**bsh*t today named Mr. Fox Ambassador bypassing Congressional Approval with his tricky little recess appointment. Appointment was pulled originally due to not having the votes for Sam "Swift Boat" Fox .. one of the Bushthugs biggest contributors:


“President Bush named Republican fundraiser Sam Fox as U.S. ambassador to Belgium on Wednesday, using a maneuver that allowed him to bypass Congress where Democrats had derailed Fox’s nomination. …
Recognizing Fox did not have the votes to obtain Senate confirmation, Bush withdrew the nomination last month. On Wednesday, with Congress out of town for a spring break, the president used his power to make recess appointments to put Fox in the job without Senate confirmation.
This means Fox can remain ambassador until the end of the next session of Congress, effectively through the end of the Bush presidency.”
UPDATE: The White House originally said that it had pulled Fox “his nomination would not have passed” the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Fox donated $50,000 to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.

He just keeps on doing this stuff. On Olbermann tonite, Richard Wolffe made the comment that this Administration really doesn't give a sh*t about anything or anyone but themselves at this point. Bush is simply holding on until he leaves office and hands the whole mess over to the next guy.

He just doesn't give a damn about the Country. Of course, just my humble opinion, I don't think he EVER gave a damn. Which is sad for us, and sadder for our country as a whole.
