A grizzly gang of grievance grinchs
You can tell a lot about this President by the people he nominates, hires and appoints: lack of executive experience? Guilty as charged by Biden and HRC more than a year ago.
ANTHONY VAN JONES: A few short years ago Anthony (Van) Jones was a San Francisco Bay Area radical agitator–a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, waging war on the police and capitalist system. Today Van Jones holds a key position in the US government and has the ear of President Barack Obama. (May still have the President’s ear, but was forced to resign Sept. 2009.)
Appointing Cass “The Twinkie” Sunstein to be Regulation Czar, charged with balancing economic growth with social risk (whatever in hell that means). Mr. Sunstein apparently believes people should have their organs harvested if they don’t specify their wishes prior to their demise, and, he believes animals should have the right to file suit in human courts, and, he thinks a Fairness Doctrine for the internet is a good idea. Mr. Sunstein thinks we should reformulate the 1st Amendment to encourage more diversity (sound familiar?) and he thinks we should ban hunting and celebrate tax day. He is married to Samatha Power, a Pulitzer winner who is distinctly anti-Israel, a woman who called HRC a “monster” while working for the Obama campaign. BTW, Mr. Sunstein believes you are a barbarian if you eat meat, and the way we treat animals is comparable to slavery. One wonders if Mr. Sunstein has bells on his shoes. He most certainly has bees in his bonnet.

DON’T FORGET ALL THE CZARS: FULL LISTING HERE
PLUS YOUR NEW FAIRNESS DOCTRINE CZAR, MARK LLOYD OVER AT THE FCC
REPUBLICANS BOYCOTT LEAHY HEARING*
JUDGE DAVID HAMILTON: President Barack Obama has just nominated federal Judge David Hamilton to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. Hamilton has issued controversial rulings banning public prayers offered “in Jesus name,” and hastening the abortion of unborn children.
ANTI-HAMILTON PETITION HERE:
WASHINGTON—A packed committee room at Wednesday’s confirmation hearing for President Obama’s first judicial nominee was missing one group: Senate Republicans on the Judiciary Committee. Saying they had not been given enough time to prepare, most Republicans boycotted the hearing on Judge David Hamilton’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Their absence as a group sent a unified message that they would not be rushed and signaled that storms may be on the horizon as Obama attempts to remake the courts. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said committee Democrats ignored repeated requests for reasonable time to evaluate Hamilton’s controversial record. “There is no reason for scheduling a drive-by hearing only days after nomination except to turn the Senate into a rubber stamp for President Obama’s nominees,” said Hatch, a former Judiciary Committee Chairman.
