    Nice try, though. Good luck with this night classes.
    The FBI broke the law, which you dismissed as no big deal. Now, something where the guy was already punished for his transgression, and you are up in arms over it. And you have yet to actually justify this, you just try and turn it around and throw out personal insults.

    You also have yet to address the point that this is not why his nomination was held up. In fact, you have done nothing except to try(and fail) to score cheap political points with this.

    Unlike yourself, I'm not fabricating anything. You said:

    He screwed up 20 years ago, he was punished, and that had jack to do with why his nomination was held up. This is just political stupidity at it's finest.
    Which means, that you don't have a problem with an FBI agent, who violated a citizen's civil rights, then lied about it to Congress, being the head honcho of the TSA.

    It's cool, we get the picture. You're all about harping over partisan politics, until your boy tries to appoint an idiot to a directorship. Then, it's ok with you, because he got a week off, with pay.

    No, that is not what I said. You have would to be painfully stupid to say that I said that. I was clear in my words, and they meant nothing like that. I am sorry that my pointing out your hypocrisy has left you so desperate, but that is not my problem. Now, would you care to talk about my actual words, or are you going to, once again, make **** up to argue against?

    Re: TSA nominee withdraws amid 'political agenda'

    1. on the morning of massachusetts the president's nominee had to be nixed cuz he abused his law enforcement powers and lied to congress about it

    2. which is exactly where things have stood with mr southers for a month

    3. the only thing that's new, changed, different is, well, scott brown

    4. TERRORISM as an issue killed coakley

    5. brown said over and over again, it doesn't make sense to "spend taxpayer money on attorneys" for terrorists instead of trying to kill them

    6. how mutallab could ever have come so close, how legally to handle the jingle bells jihadist, how happened hasan at fort hood---these issues overshadowed even health care in that now famous final debate where brown interrupted moderator gergen to correct the arrogant egghead---this aint the kennedy seat, it's the people's---in true reaganesque fashion

    7. terrorism is tripping this president just as much as it mangled the massachusetts AG

    8. her numbers plummeted after 2 huge events, only 24 hours apart

    9. harry got 60 on christmas eve

    10. and mutallab lit the back of a plane on fire on the Day itself

    11. time mag published a piece this morning, saying---the pentagon's just released fort hood report, 86 pages long, DOES NOT MENTION ONCE mr hasan's name

    12. also unutterable STILL inside our military is the word, "ISLAM"

    13. most americans have come by now to see a political correctness AT THE INSTITUTIONAL LEVEL in the army as most responsible for all those egregious oversights of red light warnings that were so, again, institutionally ignored at hood

    14. that PC in the pentagon persists, patently

    15. read the report:

    Fort Hood Report: No Mention of Islam, Hasan Not Named - TIME

    16. the president repeatedly lets his agenda dictate his response to these extempore exigencies

    17. he really, deeply, yearningly just wants terrorism to go away

    18. he certainly does not want to deal with it

    19. he has (had) an extremely ambitious agenda that he obviously loves, health care, social engineering around the question of climate, redistribution, political empowerment of a certain class...

    20. fighting terrorism is and never was any part of his heart, it could only ever come up as an unasked for, unwanted obligation

    21. his policy concerning international jihad can only be described as OSTRICH

    22. he buries his head and hopes it goes away

    23. when the enemy refuse to cooperate by disappearing, the president displays this perplexing pattern of always painting the incident in its most optimistic perspective

    24. hence, he pronounces mutallab an "isolated extremist"

    25. the white house knew at the time the nasty nigerian was trained, armed and sent by al qaeda in yemen

    26. it is now equally clear that had our intel done its job after fort hood instead of refusing to look at the alahu akbar killer in his ugly actuality, the fbi would have stumbled unmistakably onto the computer correspondence that led straight from the mad imam, al awlaki, to the christmas crusader

    27. but, no, the president just cannot force himself to look at the furious face of our foe who, unfortunately, is no neocon's fantasy

    28. thus, the president's "evolution of anger," so much tossed about in the waikiki week after yule, the week martha coakley croaked

    29. from everything went like "clockwork" to "criminal suspect" to "systemic failure" to "catastrophic breach" to "considerations of military action against yemen" in one wild, whacked out week

    30. why was southers sent south TODAY?

    31. embarrassment never averted this administration before

    32. terrorism, the unwanted issue, is ripping this poor president to pieces

    33. today in the senate, 4 senior officials, including dhs napolitano, were made to look ridiculous by john mccain when they were forced to admit they had NOT BEEN CONSULTED about the movement of mutallab before civil venues

    washingtonpost.com

    34. and DOJ has so far refused to talk

    35. dennis blair, head of HIG (high value interrogation group), told the senators his agency was not prepared for the apprehension of terrorists within our borders, only overseas

    36. he later issued a statement saying HIG was not yet "fully operational"

    37. this one, like so many others, aint goin away

    38. complete incompetence

    39. the intent to try terrorist suspects before civil courts destroyed massachusetts' gentle AG

    40. just today went down the withdrawal of TSA southers, the whitewashed pentagon report on fort hood, the painfully unprofessional testimony of senior officials before jiltin joe's homeland security

    41. the president's posture pertaining to the suddenly compelling issue of terrorism is pathetically, perilously polyanna

    42. it's going to pulverize him

    I hate to burst the bubbles of all y'all, but every cop I've ever worked with has done this at least once, whether it was for a friend, or the record of a boy who wants to date his/her daughter, or even a neighbor who seems "questionable." Cops do this kind of thing all the time. Running someone's record is inappropriate (albeit, in my book, semi-understandable). The inexcusable part was lying to congress about it.

    However, it takes two parties to play politics. I hope y'all remember that what goes around comes around.

    Here's an example...

    What the police can learn when they run a background check on your name. - By Brad Flora - Slate Magazine

    Peterson's attorney says it was common practice for Bolingbrook police to run checks for friends and family, and to run prank names to alleviate boredom.

    Agreed, they do this short of thing all the time FOR family members. The thing, I hate is that he lied to congress about doing it in the first place.

    THAT is the issue, not that he was sanctioned for inappropriate conduct 20 years ago. He should have just brazened it out.

    Yeap, I tend to agree with this. He should have just told the truth, and he would still have the job.
