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 Lees 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 Lees office nor the Congressional Black Caucus responded to request for comment.
Weiner turned it down?
Why not Maxine Waters and Charlie Rangel instead?
A few other threads if anyone is interested in the comments thereon:
it would get her out of congress
That would be (quoting WhoreAldo from a few years ago) “The MAJESTIC Sheila Jackson Lee”.
Hey, why not that Commie from California that B1 Bob couldn’t stand, what was his name Ron Dellums? Is he still alive Dellums?
I hope so...kinda.
Hey odumbo, quit screwing around and just appoint one of your muzzie bros from gitmo for the job. You know that’s what you want to do. And we all know there are no pubbies with the balls to oppose your highness.
Laughing out loud at the craziness of the left has brought us to the terrible state we are in today. Its no longer funny. They are seriously about to overturn this republic. No more LOLOLOLOL!!!!!
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.
Hey odumbo, quit screwing around and just appoint one of your muzzie bros from gitmo for the job. You know thats what you want to do. And we all know there are no pubbies with the balls to oppose your highness.
Please stop making fun of the Vichy Republicans.
She can help the “vunables”
Sure, why not. After all, if we're going to have a circus in Washington, might as well send in all the clowns!
For Homeland Security
Are they serious?!
My I suggest instead of her, let's nominate this ...
Is it my imagination?
Seems like most of Obama’s recent appointments have been female—regardless of their skills.
No, they're after his Muslim wife instead.
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.
And the hits just keep on comin...
Jackson-Lees 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.
“Well, I’ve been to one world fair, a picnic, and a rodeo, and that’s the stupidest thing I ever heard come over the internet.”
My pick is Pimp with a Limp.
Why not Maxine Waters, Hell, lets just get to the lowest level in one big swoop!!
Not to mention, more flags on Mars!
I choose to laugh....keeps me from total insanity. Whatever floats your boat is ok with me....
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.
