Mr. President, You Sure Can Pick’em…
Why do we have a judge/lawyer as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security? Does this make since to you? Not me, this is another Michael Brown (FEMA) in the making… Secretary Michael Chertoff is a failure! The President sure can pick’em…, let me ask you this, wouldn’t you rather have someone who knows a thing or two about defending our country? I can immediately think of 20 different people that can protect us better than Michael Jerkoff! This guy has no experience whatsoever to be in charge of defending our homeland… Mr. President, I have a suggestion for you… Why don’t you ask some of our retired military base commanders who were responsible for securing our greatest assests to our national security, to defend our country? I know it makes too much sense, but this guy’s got to go! We are not using our best people to do our most important jobs, the retired Generals and Colonels have tremendous experience in defense and they will know how to respond if a situation arises. These are the people that defend our nuclear weapons, Mr. President, our top secret weapon systems, stealth bombers, F-22s, F-117s, and everything else in between. Instead you chose a judge and lawyer, who sat in a courtroom and tried criminal cases? Little by little I’m wondering what goes into your decision making process… Now Secretary Jerkoff is saying that since the amnesty bill did not pass, then it’s going to be difficult to enforce the borders… Will someone tell this lawyer, that he should know as a lawyer, that all he has to do is enforce the laws already on the books. Any judge or lawyer should know that! What a failure! Mark my word, Michael Jerkoff will be the next to awaken the sleeping giant. All I can say is that if we suffer another attack I hope this Harvard lawyer is not at the helm. To be continued…
