Gregg

Lemon1

In observation and in commentary.

Whine, whine, whine:

In an interview with The Associated Press, Gregg said, “For 30
years, I’ve been my own person in charge of my own views, and I guess I
hadn’t really focused on the job of working for somebody else and
carrying their views, and so this is basically where it came out.”

Gregg, 61, said he informed theWhite House
“fairly early in the week” about his decision. He said he changed his
mind after realizing he wasn’t ready to “trim my sails” to be a part of
Obama’s team.

“I just sensed that I was not going to be good at being anything other than myself,” he said.

You selfish asshole. I can think ofa couple hundred thousand people who’ve been asked to carry out views not their own by their president, without the option of turning up on CNN going all, “Oh, man, it’s just so hard being a grown-up,” and they’ve managed not to wank about it in public, so maybe not so much with the aggrieved martyr act, you dick.

Serving as Commerce Secretary is not the hardest job the president can ask you to do. Quit if you want, before suffering the awful indignity of sitting in a chair while douchebags with “Senator” before their names ask you questions, but don’t be all, “I’m just too integritous and awesome for the job, is all” when the truth is you just don’t want to do it. I am so sick of wingnut WATB-tude masquerading as saintly forebearance, I swear, I could punch something.

  1. Well Mr. Obama, that’s what being all “bipartisan” gets you. Every hear the story that ends: You knew I was a snake when you clutched me to your breast?

    Wonder how many hours of effort were wasted. Its not like Obama has any problems to attend to.
    Not to mention, even if the process hadn’t taken any time of the WH staff, this still puts the appointment of the Sec of Commerce off by 3 weeks. 3 weeks that could be used in working on this mess we’re in.

    This census thing is going to be a Battle Royal. The Republicans are already up in BHO’s face about misusing the Executive.
    As FUCKING if…

    how about lincoln chaffee? he’s a reasonable republikan.

  5. Pug says:

    Republicans hate two things more than anything else, an apostate or a collaborator. They are ready to run anyone out of the party who cooperates with Obama. Of course, this will leave them as an even smaller, whiter, more Southern party, but that’s what they want. They are the party of Southern whites, Joe the Plumber, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. What a bunch of losers.
    Gregg will be replaced by a Democrat in 2010. So long, Gregg, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

    I’m a big soccer fan and sometimes the announcers will say of somebody who simultaneously quits and cries ‘he spit the dummy’. A dummy is a pacifier. Judd Gregg spit the dummy.

  7. BuggyQ says:

    So here’s my question about Gregg: did anybody ask him at the start, before they offered him the job, “Hey, dude, you’re gonna have to promote the President’s agenda. Think you can do that, Mr. Smarty-Pants Republican? Think hard.”
    Jesus H. Motherfuckin’ Snake on a Plane Christ. I’m thinkin’ this whole vetting thing must be really, really, really, really hard, because these are smart people, and they keep fucking it up.
    Barack, man, just get this shit done, get it done right, and stop trying to be bipartisan. Just try to be a good president–that’s more important anyway.

    Excellent! Gregg just handed Obama a huge plate of WIN.
    Now Obama can say “Look, we tried…” and then he can pick someone good.

    Do you think he’s got the chops for that? One of the things I was most concerned about was hownice he seems to be. If he keeps trying to accommodate the Republicans, they’re going to roll right over him without even pausing…

    Every morning at the Hill you could see him get off
    Cutting hot deals for Abramoff.
    He voted to kill Commerce, then accepted that job
    Which put him in the sights of the GOP mob.

    He was gonna be there as “a voice at the table”
    He was all gung-ho, ready, willing, and able…
    Said “This is not a time for partisanship”
    and the stimulus bill was a really good trip.

    The WSJ and the RNC
    said “Boy ya better think fore ya mess with me”
    He said, I’m sorry guys – I didn’t mean to take it
    Tell Gates and LaHood that all I did was fake it.
    And out of wingnuttia came a terrible sound
    Like the sick tortured baying of a poisoned hound
    “You’ll be our new hero”, they said with a smirk,
    “and you’ll get lotsa mileage out of being a jerk”

    Well, the repubs held their breath until they turned blue
    and said they didn’t care what the people want to do.
    Cause the Party’s more important than fixing this mess…
    And it’s fun blowing up Bonnie Newman’s dress.
