(Block-heads – what a great frame for the Goopers! – promoted by herding old cats)
“Department of Defense: Sens. Richard Shelby (R-AL) and Jeff Sessions (R-AL) announced today that “they are blocking President Barack Obama’s nomination of Ashton Carter as Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics.” The senators want assurances that Carter will not “change the criteria” on which the Pentagon considers a refueling tanker contract that could benefit defense contractors in their state.'
Once again our “representatives” embarrass us. They oppose President Obama's stimulus plan and budget, but have no problem blocking the appointment of Ashton Carver in the name of the all mighty dollar.
Once, just once, I'd like to see these blockheads do something for the good of the people. Can they really believe Carter wouldn't be an outstanding servant of the American people? No, they just want to make sure the Pentagon spending funnels more pork homeward, all the while decrying Democrats “pork habits”.
