Oh my goodness gracious! Where is my fainting couch? Hand me the smelling salts! Who could ever have suspected that a Republican appointee would engage in unethical behavior? [/snark]
Obama is a fool, at best, to indulge his predilection for appointing Republicans… no Republican president would ever appoint a Democrat to anything at all. It is just one more reason why I shall not vote to re-elect the man.
AFTERTHOUGHT: did Republicans thank Obama for the recess appointment of one of their own? Don’t make me laugh… they used the revelation of unethical behavior to fault Obama for using a (perfectly legal) recess appointment. Ingratitude, thy name is Republican. [/snark]
