Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security secretary?
Daily Caller ^ | 07/30/2013 | Alexis Levinson

Posted on 07/30/2013 3:33:38 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

The Congressional Black Caucus wants Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas to be the next Secretary of Homeland Security, now that former Sec. Janet Napolitano has resigned to become president of the University of California System.

The Houston Chronicle reported that CBC Chairwoman Marcia Fudge sent a letter to President Barack Obama last week to “encourage [him] to strongly consider” Jackson Lee for the Cabinet post.

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

It cites Jackson Lee’s former position as Chairwoman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection, saying that in that role, she “supported increased airplane cargo inspections and increased security for railroads, issues of great importance to the security of this nation and its citizens.”

The letter says she “stands as a strong and honest ‘voice of reason’” in her current position as ranking member on another Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security.

Neither Jackson Lee’s office nor the Congressional Black Caucus responded to request for comment.

The racist Congressional Black Caucus wants Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas to be the next Secretary of Homeland Security.

Why not? Common sense, intelligence, integrity, honesty, are certainly not essential requirements for any office in this administration. The racist Congressional Black Caucus has a need for judging people by the color of their skin, NOT by the content of their character. Nothing new here!

Black Caucus Chairwoman Marcia Fudge. Bwahahaha

You can’t make this stuff up.

If she Married a guy named Packer and hyphenated her name she would be Marcia Fudge-packer.

Sure, why not. After all, if we're going to have a circus in Washington, might as well send in all the clowns!

Is it my imagination?

Seems like most of Obama’s recent appointments have been female—regardless of their skills.

A box of rocks would be an improvement. Lee is an ANTI-US racist who would open the borders as a punishment. The CBC are hateful and corrupt.

How about Pee Wee Herman for Sec of Defense?

It makes just as much sense.

Jackson-Lee’s only qualification for sitting on the Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics was the space between her ears. She visited JPL and asked if the Mars Rover would be able to show “the flag the astronauts planted there before”.

If that particular nomination didn’t bring about a filibuster then I give up.

Shoot, at this point they should just vote her in. She’d fit right in with all the rest of them and would make the CBC and the dems look really bad everytime she opened her mouth.
