The Swift Boat Never Sinks
Posted by nytexan on April 4, 2007
Bush in another defiant move gave a recess appointment for Sam Fox as U.S. Ambassador to Belgium on Wednesday. The very same Swift boat donor, who Bush nominated and then withdrew because Fox wouldn’t be able to pass Senate confirmation.
Bush thumbs his nose at Congress and waits for them to goon there break to appoint the very person he withdrew.
Here are the other recess appointment that went on today:
Carol Waller Pope, of the District of Columbia: Member of the Federal Labor Relations Authority;
Andrew Biggs Deputy Director of Social Security;
Susan E. Dudley, of Virginia: Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the Office of Management and Budget.
Obviously everyone Bush pick can’t pass the Senate confirmation.
