    The position of what?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    "They" are not representing us. Someone who used to work there got a government job.

    So you know exactly nothing about either the topic or the contents of the thread. Please get back to me when that changes.

    This would be akin to a right-wing prez appointing Andrew Breitbart or Rush Limbaugh to run the EAC. to wit, pathologically duplicitous leftists would immediately succumb to apoplectic seizures.
    Incrementally, and always under the guise of "fairness", "equality", and "social justice", the US Constitution has been deceitfully interpreted in ways that remove all limitations on central authority...and place them on the people.

Just because someone has a political point of view they must be passed over positions they are qualified for and only people who have no opinion on politics should be able to be appointed to these positions. That is just plain dumb. This appointee is highly qualified for this job. He is an accomplished attorney that specialized in oversight of management compliance to government directives. He is accomplished businessmen having founded and ran a successful political consulting firm. He has been involved in elections almost his entire adult career and was a successful businessman to boot. If we disqualify people like him to serve in positions of government then we might as well pack up our tents because we will only have mediocrity left. Your arguments hold no logical weight.
    Not anywhere near what I said. This is a position that should be free of as much partisan bias as possible, yet it was handed to someone who's biggest job to date has been to run a HIGHLY partisan website. It's a BAD choice, one that leaves the position open to accusation and questions. There are a LOT of people out there who are just as qualified, but don't carry the baggage the Butler does, so why make a choice that's guaranteed to bring heat to the position??? This is FAR from the first time this kind of thing has happened and it's a pattern that is bad for this country, not just because of which side of the aisle it's comong from, but for the precedent it sets, that of putting partisanship over what's best for the WHOLE nation.
    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
