Congressional Black Caucus recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary

Congressional Black Caucus recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary

Hannah Jeffrey

Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee as a replacement for outgoing-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.”

A letter dated July 25 and signed by CBC Chairwoman Rep. Marcia Fudge, an Ohio Democrat, urges President Barack Obama to consider Jackson Lee for the position formerly held by Janet Napolitano, the first woman to hold the position. Napolitano resigned earlier this month to become president of the University of California.

“Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security,” the nomination letter reads.

Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace. I would look for a better human rights record for North Vietnam, but they are living side by side.

LOL....at last....a way to shut down at least one worthless government agency. Honestly, this woman thought our astronauts had been to Mars and planted the flag. She is the stupidest carpetbagger ever to come from NY to bamboozle her even stupider constituents, who continue to vote for her in Houston.

Sheila Jackson Lee is a joke.
But wait, Obama and the rest of this administration are jokes.
So why the hell not?
The jokes really on us anyway because the whole damn world is laughing at us.

All we have to do is just hang in there until January 20, 2017 or..................

“Congressional Black Caucus recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary”

Why? She’s already surpassed her level of incompetence. She
can’t even do the job she has now. The only people who are
stupider than her is the morons who voted for her. These
people are not only stupid but just plain dumb.

Lee and Waters are tied at three flights below the sewer.

The damage a partisan hack can do to a law enforcement agency is beyond belief. Only thing worse would be to make her the Sec of Defense.

I recommend Snoopy be appointed Dog Catcher.

I thought these guys were trying to prove that the stereo types about the intelligence of minorities was offensive, false and racists. They can’t claim racism and say things this stupid.

Hunh?

Those LOOK like words in the English language, and as individual words, each word has meaning. But the thought that is strung together from those words is altogether devoid of any sense whatsoever.

And since when did the Current Occupant of the White Hut ever pay attention to anything the Congressional Black Caucus has ever suggested? They follow HIS lead, not the other way around.

It’s the old Government trick of promoting someone that isn’t worth a damn to get rid of them.

I didn’t the the CBC was that smart.

She is so frickin stupid that even the Congressional Black Caucus wants to unload her. her constituents are so stupid they keep electing her so the only way the CBC can dump her is to have her promoted.

They will promote her right out of the CBC.

Think about it- the left does EVERYTHING with the thought of “how much will this offend conservatives & Christians”.

He just MIGHT do it.

Good. Send her to investigate that plot on Mars.

She’ll have plenty to do while getting there.

Both the DHS Secretary and Dep Sec positions need to be filled.

The USCIS director has been nominated for the #2 slot, but just got caught doing immigration related favors for one of Hillary Clinton’s brothers.

I could see this as an attempt to get Lee installed, as a compromise, as the Dep Sec.
