They just keep falling, don’t they?

Sen. Judd Gregg has withdrawn his nomination as Secretary of Commerce. Gregg cited “irresolvable conflicts” with Obama on “many critical items of policy,” including the Democrats’ pork bill and the census.

But, but, Gregg was The One’s nominee and now he has “irresolvable conflicts” with him?

Oh my – say it ain’t so! Just how MANY failed nominations has Obama made and why is the MSM so strangely mute about this farce? This a disaster-strewn beginning to his reign.

  1. I thought Senator Gregg was a good idea, reaching out to a Republican and the deal included replacing Gregg in the Seante with a Republican. Too bad it didn’t work out.

    The Media has been all over this, and correctly so.

  2. Obama wants to bring the census in-house – as in under the control of The White House – can you imagine Rahm Immanuel in control of census data – and the Gerrymandering and voter manipulation that would occur?

    Chicago politics – that’s what Obama is all about – Reverand Wright had him pegged. He’s just a politician – and an unprincipled one at that.

    No wonder Gregg said "no thank you."

  3. Senator Gregg decided he has too many philosophical differences with the Adminsitration’s plans and policy which is a fair and honorable disagreement.

  4. I just saw Obama in a press conference. He’s not exactly eloquent, is he, without a teleprompt? A few short words…..buffering….. a few more short words…..buffering……uh…uh..and so forth.

    LOL. Show me please one who isn’t. (And no, Al Gore doesn’t count.)

  6. Allan – you and your telepromt – even the man’s poltical rivals here concede his public speaking ability (even on the cuff).

  7. Irish Barry: Hold onto your lunch, because I’m going to say that President Bush was principled.

    Bush meant what he said, and stood by his word – despite plummeting polls. Until the bitter end. We always knew where Bush stood – even if we disagreed.

    In some respects maybe, but he said he would do whatever it took to deal with Islamic extremism and the promotion of the culture of Jihadism which threatened American lives, yet at the same time was the biggest sucker upper to Saudi Arabia , the most prominent advocate of anti-Western Islamic religous militancy which fueled that Jihadism.

  9. Colm: True what you say about sucking up to Saudis – but I think we are disagreeing with his methods – I don’t think he changed his prinicples.

    He also said he would protect the country – and I don’t think his pushing of the bail-out the last month of his Presidency did anything good – and probably caused significant damage opening the floodgates of "bailout money" allowing the Democrats to now push through their trillion dollar boondoggle.

    But, Bush always said what he meant. He stood on principle. You might not like his principles. And you might disagree that his methods (sucking up to Saudis for example) served any good purpose. But Bush was not unprinicpled.

  10. Patty

    I actually do agree with you. Bush was much less of a shifty ‘swing with the wind’ politician than many other leaders have been.

  11. This withdrawal was done on Gregg’s principals which were honourable. The census is the Commerece Dept’s biggest project. Obama tried to nick it after nominating the man. I’m proud of Gregg.

    Agreeing…100%…with…Colm…world…ending…

    Yeah, right, mahons. It must have been my eyes and ears lying to me again.
