Our Learning Impaired President

Didn't take him long to forget the Harriet Miers debacle. Why nominate someone that prominent members of your own party object to?
Hayden Nominated to Head CIA: "Anticipating the fight ahead, the administration began defending the appointment even before it was made. Stephen Hadley, Bush's national security adviser, said on NBC's 'Today' show and on ABC's 'Good Morning America' today that Hayden is a 'change agent,' the 'best person' for the job, 'the right man at the right time.'

Responding to concerns about having a military officer in the key civilian intelligence job, Hadley said that 'the military background is in many ways a plus. . . . But make no mistake,' Hadley said, 'when he steps in, he will not be reporting to Don Rumsfeld,' the secretary of defense.

Hayden is a four-star Air Force general, a former director of the National Security Agency and currently deputy director of national intelligence serving under director John Negroponte in the new office created by Congress in response to criticism of the CIA's failure to anticipate the terrorists attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Republican chairmen of the House and Senate intelligence panels raised serious concerns Sunday about Hayden, whose name surfaced for the job immediately after the abrupt resignation of Porter Goss on Friday, with Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-Mich.) calling him 'the wrong man at the wrong place at the wrong time.'"
Maybe now Congress will realize that the First Renter doesn't care what they think, what the people of America think, what the world thinks. He is a danger to this country and it's former way of life, with no plan past his "presidency" except to leave the debris behind. Just like he has done with every company he has ever run into the ground.

Except this time people have died and will continue to die because as a dry (?) drunk he is incapable of admitting that he is wrong. Won't listen either. He should be sent fishing every day (with the big white hunter that shoots his friends), since that seems to be the highlight of his presidency so far. That way we might have some of our freedoms left when he is finally booted out of office.
