A key Republican has vowed to block the expected promotion of White House Chief of Staff Jacob "Jack" Lew, saying he "must never be secretary of Treasury."
[snip] A strongly worded statement by Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala. -- prepared in anticipation of that nomination and obtained by Fox News -- signals the bumpy ride Lew could face during the Senate confirmation process. Sessions, the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, says Lew misled Congress about the White House's budget proposals and argues that should disqualify him from being put in charge of the government's finances.
"Lew, as the president's budget director, appeared before Congress and continued to insist that President Obama's budget-which Lew had crafted-would not add to the debt of the United States," Sessions said in the statement, calling Lew's comments "the most direct and important false assertion during my entire time in Washington."
[snip] "... a secretary of Treasury that the American people, the Congress and the world will know is up to the task of getting America on the path to prosperity; not the path to decline," he said in the statement. "Jack Lew is not that man."

Then: Will bend over to get Obama’d
Ergo: Lew will make it...guaranteed.
I believe in calling Jack Lew to task but as a practical matter any one put forward by Obama will be a putz
Just another example of proof that people who vote for liberals are retarded. There’s something wrong with them. They’ll listen to fat ass Michael Moore talk about gun control and the wealthy while he has an armed body guard and spends millions on a Park Avenue appartment. They’ll bitch about the wealthy while obama appoints millionaires to cabinet positions in between his muliti-million dollar vacations.
Their votes aren’t because of “low information”. I’m convinced they’re mentally challenged.
It’s called Double-Reverse Ju-Jitsu.
Obama nominates an abominable nominee.
Pubbie Sens like Sessions declare him unacceptable and the nomination DOA.
Harry Reid has the excuse and the cover he needs to pull the trigger on the nuclear option on filibusters.
So what are the eunuchs going to do about it? Flap their loincloths?
I hear that. They should Bork the candidates during the hearings. Stay quiet until then and them lay on them, and by extension the administration. That would yield a higher bang for the buck, in terms of the news-cycle.
It would also be fun to see what idiots like McCain would do if that were to happen.
Instead we get niceties and obscure reasoning as to why he is not qualified. Demogogue his ass, just like the RAT's would.
