Skip to comments.Congressional Black Caucus recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary
Posted on 07/30/2013 1:48:55 AM PDT by TexGrill
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.
Since entering Congress in 1995, Jackson Lee has served on several committees, including Foreign Affairs, Judiciary and Homeland Security, in which she was the Chairwoman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection.
As Chairwoman, Representative Jackson Lee 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 continues.
Jackson Lee currently holds the post of Ranking Member of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, a position that the CBC says she stands as a strong and honest voice of reason.

How much more can one take?

FReepers we got some competition. Take a look a the comments on the Houston Chronicle article. They’re hilarious, but we should step up to the plate and do better.
“You’ve got to be kidding me. Just the thought of this makes me shudder. Can she even find the U.S. on a map?”
An example of comment posted by a Houston Chronicle reader
However, this seems to be the most frequent comment: “never seen so many comments blocked ...”
I have to wonder if there is a single non Democrat in DC with the courage to say “We have humored your destructive policies and stupidity long enough.”
It’ll be a chilly day in Hades before a suspicious character slips by an intellectual like Sheila Jackson Lee. We’ll be in good hands. How will her district find someone to replace her if this transpires?
Leave it to the Houston Comical to suggest that only conservatives think she’s a batsheet crazy moron unsuited for high office.
Even her own berated and mistreated staff says she is the worst person to work for.
But don’t that stand in the way of her political advancement using the Peter Principle to rise to the level of your own incompetence.
“Think I’d rather put a drug cartel ringleader in charge of Homeland Security before her. We’d get the same result just wouldn’t need to see her mugshot as much.”
My favorite Houston Chronicle comment so far.
Not anywhere I’ll eat. Jessie J spit on the food. This fool aould use another bodily function beginning with “S” and claim whites o-pressing her caused it.
Congressional Black Caucus: RACIST PANEL
Sheila Jackson Lee: 1: to slow up especially by preventing or hindering advance or accomplishment : impede
All the phony “free” press are the same these days. Even the ones with a more conservative editorial column still run lefty AP news and such on the other pages.
I bet the Austin Armpit-StinksMan has something similar or soon will.
She would be restricted to the bathroom area. Call that the throne rooms.
