    In regards to Paulson its been customary that those that are picked to run the treasury have been banking executives.

    The sad part is, the Dems are acting as if the guy didn't do anything wrong.

    Howard Dean, today, said it would be a great loss for the country.

    Setting aside the hilarious understatement in claiming he was "linked to...derogatory comments about Republicans," this is good to see.

    Hopefully we can recognize that this idiot got the appropriate treatment for his actions, and we can in turn give it the appropriate amount of attention it deserves - a few dozen posts in this thread before we drop it.
    Unfortunately the media and many are missing the REAL story here; the questionable judgment of a President who has little experience and panders to radicals and gives them high level positions; that is, until someone "outs" them; then he drops them like a hot potato.

    Notice that the spin here is that Obama did not ask for his resignation; even more reason to question the lack of good judgment of this President.

    Van Jones actions make him unfit to act as an adviser to the executive, and I am certainly glad he is gone. On the other hand, I don't like the attempts to use it promote Beck as a credible journalist. A single success does not change his constant failures. Hopefully Obama will get a clue about doing a little more research for his next czar pick.

    No I think he deserves losing his job for being an extremist and a bigot.

    Um the guys a bigot and a radical nutjob. He claims that whites are intentionally polluting blacks, he's a twoofer, and just an all around whackjob but that's par for the course with the current administration. What's next czars calling for compulsory female sterilization? Oh wait to late.

    Appointing bigots doesn't bother you?

    I think being a bigot, a conspiracy theorist, a self proclaimed communist might be some of the little criteria for disqualifying a person from a cabinet position in the White House. And you know other little things like (I don't know) calling for compulsory sterilization of women. But ya don't sweat the small stuff.

    We understand that you can't grasp that bigotry is extremely offensive to most Americans.
