Bush Recess Appoints Julie Myers

All I can say to this is WTF Mr. President? In a stunningly brazen move today, President Bush used a recess appointment to fill the slot of assistant secretary of Homeland Security for Immigration and Customs Enforcement with the uber totally unqualified/nepotistic/Michael Brown-like pick of Julie Myers. Here is the Bloomberg article. This pick is wrong on so many levels. The first reason is nepotism. I thought Bush would learn something from the Michael Brown fiasco. Obviously he has not. Mrs Myers is the daughter of former Joint Chiefs Chairman Richard Myers and her husband is the Chief of Staff for Homeland Security Secretary, Michael Chertoff. Anyone else see a problem with this? Secondly, she is totally unqualified for this very important position. She will in charge of securing our borders and enforcing the immigration laws. I guess I thought Mr. Bush would take this choice a little more seriously. The choice itself shows that Bush doesn't want the immigration laws enforced.

Michelle Malkin doesn't like this pick either
