Skip to comments.The return of The Wall? (Jamie Gorelick for AG?)
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 its a familiar face. Jamie S. Gorelick may be on Obamas 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:
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.
No justice, no god, no hope.
He had better not!
Wonder if she will go to the inauguration wearing a stovepipe hat?
They cant be this stupid. Her Fannie Mae affiliation has doomed her.
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.
Wonder if he will fire all the U.S. attorneys?
Wonder if the media will notice or issue one big YAWN.
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.
PS: Even her name disqualifies her. LOL!
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.
“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.”
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.
This woman should have been tarred-feathered and run out of town on a rail....she would fit in nicely with the other moonbats BO is considering....
“They cant be this stupid. Her Fannie Mae affiliation has doomed her.:
On the contrary. To this administration, it’s a feather in her cap.
“Wonder if he will fire all the U.S. attorneys?”
I have the same question.
This whole administration is going to be madness!
All the clandestine Marxist operatives that have conspired for years to bring down the Capitalist nation of America are coming out and coming home to roost in their rightful places, next to the new Marxist dictator of America, Obama
Nah, they're all holdovers from BJ Clinton anyway. GWB was too compassionate to fire them.
He will do that and get rid of all the Bush hold-overs.
And all the Clinton hold-overs Bush shoud have broomed.
You mean that her and Gore are that good of buddy’s.
She is the freakin’ MISTRESS OF DISASTER. Had a hand in 9/11 AND the credit crisis. Jeez, it just keeps getting better.
With nary a word from our beloved W.
Sound like a way to carry on the failed policies of Bill Clinton, to borrow a phrase.
If they are trully re-treading the entire Clinton posse, why didn’t the Dems just elect Hillary?
Somebody hasta ask it ;).
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.
It’s going to be Eric Holder for Attorney General. And for the next opening on the Supreme Court.
Wasn’t Holder one of the great minds behind Waco?
Isn’t she the one that looted FannieMae for million$?
This one really needs to be investigated and brought front row center. Traitor is putting it mildly for her.
This sure is making Obama look guilty since he is putting on board people who actually sat on the boards of Freddie and Fanny.
I’d hope the Republicans would go absolutely rabid during any such confirmation hearings....and bring it all back to the surface.
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.
Barney Frank for Federal Reserve Chairperson! He can get some young men to help him cheap!
Fannie Mae multi-millionaire Jamie will level the playing field for foreign terrorists and domestic communist mau-mauers. Happy days are here again.
This woman has no shame.
Gorelick Wall which likely contributed to 9-11, the stonewalling on twa-800, the 9-11 commission, Fannie Mae...now this? Whatever this woman touches turns into a steaming pile.
No. He was a DC Superior Court Associate Judge at the time. He didn't join the Justice Department until 1997.
Hannity discussing this.
