The return of The Wall? (Jamie Gorelick for AG?)
HotAir ^ | November 10, 1008 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 11/10/2008 8:15:22 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

The New York Times’ Eric Lichtblau takes a look at a potential Attorney General nominee in the nascent Barack Obama administration — and it’s a familiar face. Jamie S. Gorelick may be on Obama’s short list for AG, but she has been a familiar face during the Bush administration, too. Gorelick served under Janet Reno during the Clinton administration and played a critical role in blinding counterterrorism efforts prior to 9/11:

--snip--

Gorelick would bring corporate experience to an Obama administration — in the same way Rahm Emanuel did. Gorelick was vice chairman at Fannie Mae in the years when the GSE fraudulently reported its income. She got a Friends of Angelo sweetheart mortgage for almost a million dollars in 2003, and is currently under investigation by the department she would run if nominated for AG.

Yay! The Fannie-Mae administration!

Just like they did Fannie Mae, they will run this country into the ground.

First thing she’ll do is release all the GITMO terrorists with an apology and a copy of the Koran.

How can this girl be seriously considered for Attorney General? Based on her work in the Clinton administration to erect that “wall” about sharing intelligence about terror threats, and the fact that she’s “on the wrong side of history” on that issue, how can she be seriously considered?

Nothing personal against her, as Joe Biden might say, it’s her JUDDDGGEEMENT that I question.

Perfect, she can do what the toons did, fire the attorneys who are investigating her. Ever since she was on the 9-11 commission to cover for herself and the Clintons, the whole world has been upside down. And of course the republicans will approve her.

She would be a disaster as AG, and if she really is on the short list, it shows how clueless Barack Obama is about the threats to this nation.

Clueless? I think not. Rather, it would be deliberate. See the earlier Jamie Gorelick thread.

Gorelick as AG is asking for trouble. I don’t see Obama doing that when he could get another one who would do the same and be less of an issue.

All that can be added to that is your user name.

I said on another thread that maybe Lawrence Tribe will get the A.G. spot. He’s probably too old for the Supreme Court, and too lightweight to become an astronaut. Obama will reward Tribe with something.

The country will be in for an entire Murderer’s Row, the names will drip out one by one. Stock provisions, pray, and get Palin to Washington to start telling the people, in language they understand, just what will be happening to our nation.

On the contrary. To this administration, it’s a feather in her cap.

If he does, it will be ok with the media, because it won't be for "political reasons." /s

Nah, they're all holdovers from BJ Clinton anyway. GWB was too compassionate to fire them.

IMO, this is bait and switch. Float a Gorelick trial balloon, then pull back and nominate someone equally as dangerous. Everyone heaves a sigh of relief and the new nominee sails through.

Worked for Clinton and we got Janet Reno.

Jamie Gorelick for Attorney General

I wouldn't doubt this for a minute. No matter what they're past mis-deeds are, they always get back into power. With her extensive and wretched past, in a perfect world, she would've been strung up already. No media outlet wants to talk about how much of HER actions have had a negative effect on this country, and further, her being on the 911 Commission was beyond all human rationalization.

No. He was a DC Superior Court Associate Judge at the time. He didn't join the Justice Department until 1997.
