From the Wichia Eagle:
‘Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the top Republican on the committee, said in an interview last week that he found the revelations troubling. “I don’t think we’ll ever get a pro-life person appointed to that position with this president, but we want to make sure we don’t get somebody that has got radical views on abortion,” he said.
Another committee Republican, Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, said Monday that Sebelius initially “seemed to be a qualified candidate for the job. However, after learning about her inexplicable omission of donations from the late-term abortion doctor George Tiller, I have to reevaluate my support for her nomination,” Hatch said in a statement. “I regard human life to be sacred, and it troubles me to have someone with an apparent cavalier attitude toward life – as well as a lack of candor on this important issue – head our nation’s health services.”
An elephant never forgets?
‘Some GOP senators expressed concerns about Sebelius’ inaccurate response to the Finance Committee about how much campaign money she got from Dr. George Tiller, a Wichita abortion doctor who is under investigation by Kansas’ medical board over late-term procedures he performed,’ the article goes on to say.
The White House has stuck by Sebelius thus far. Too bad. I guess the public, not necessarily just American citizens, are so blinded by this new administration that we would just let anyone not only become president, but also take offices and cabinet positions. Some of ‘us’ have opinions, in fact so much so that the DHS has a report on people just like me….Republican, activist, OPINIONATED, etc.
I wouldn’t be so blown away by all of this rhetoric if Barack HUSSEIN Obama would nominate someone else other than baby killing Democrat. Obama’s agenda is obvious.
When you have to bathe BEFORE you get to Washington…you know you’ve got issues. Pay your taxes THEN check them twice?
And incredibly, Sebelius is not the only one; look at Daschle and Richardson. Both ON FIRE for the new administration but think so high of themselves that they momentarily forget to pay their taxes like the rest of us grunts have to do.
And in a story dated January 7, 2009 from the New York Times:
Mr. Richardson, of New Mexico, was one of three prominent elected officials from that part of the country chosen for cabinet positions, joining Gov. Janet Napolitano of Arizona, Mr. Obama’s pick to lead the Department of Homeland Security, and Senator Ken Salazar of Colorado, his choice to be Interior secretary.
Mr. Richardson withdrew in the face of a federal grand jury investigation into state corruption that he said risked slowing his confirmation at a time when Mr. Obama wants to move urgently to address the deteriorating economy; there is no indication that either of the other two nominations face any trouble.
Now you know that’s funny.I mean, who else is Barack HUSSEIN Obama gonna nominate? He already has Larry, Moe and Curly.
