The Worst, Most Inept President
All By Himself!
(From Think Progress):
Among those appointees are some notables and not-so-notables.Next week, “change is coming to America,” as President George W. Bush wraps up his tenure as one of the worst American presidents ever. He wasn’t able to accomplish such an ignominious feat all by himself, however; he had a great deal of help along the way. The ThinkProgress team heralds the conclusion of the Bush 43 presidency by bringing you our list of the top 43 worst Bush appointees.
John Yoo - The attorney in the DOJ who was involved with Gitmo detainee abuse and even considered as presidential prerogative detainees being buried alive!
Monica Goodling - A runner up for "dumbest appointment", Goodling was the graduate of Pat Robertson's Regent University (making her dumber than most of Bush's appointees) who based some of her hiring practices on sexual preference.
Harriet Miers - Bush touted her as a Supreme Court nominee simply because she said Bush was "the most brilliant man she has ever met." Nobody knows what kind of mind-controlling substance she was on at the time.
Julie MacDonald - A top Interior Department appointee, MacDonald saw to it that the only "endangered species" was in her staff.
Susan Orr — As Assistant Deputy Secretary for Population Affairs. This "Dr." was formerly with Family Research Council, so it was inevitable that she said "We're quite pleased because fertility is not a disease. It's not a medical necessity that you have [contraception]."
DUMBEST AND MOST HYPOCRITICAL appointment:
Former U.S. AID director Randall Tobias, who resigned yesterday upon admitting that he frequented a Washington escort service, oversaw a controversial policy advocated by the religious right that required any US-based group receiving anti-AIDS funds to take an anti-prostitution “loyalty oath.”
After Jan. 20th, these people, like a Mission Impossible tape, will probably "self-destruct" within months.
Let's hope so.
Just a thought.
