Sam Fox donates $50,000 to the Swift Boat bitches & claims the Sgt. Schultz defense. He gets called on it during a Senate hearing. Bu$hCo withdrew Fox's nomination, the result of realizing that Fox would not gain support from the new Senate. So what does the dickhead-in-chief do? He makes a recess appointment. Way to work in an honest, bipartisan manner, Bu$hCo. This sets another good example for the young people of America. Say one thing & do another. What an asshole.
Democrats find the recess appointment -- a common maneuver by presidents whose nominees stand little chance of getting through the standard confirmation process -- particularly egregious since Fox's nomination wasn't even pending. The White House withdrew the nomination last week, anticipating it didn't have enough votes for approval.
"It is outrageous that the president has sought to stealthily appoint Sam Fox to the position of ambassador to Belgium when the president formally requested that the Fox nomination be withdrawn from the Senate because it was facing certain defeat in the Foreign Relations Committee last week," Dodd said. "I seriously question the legality of the President's use of the recess appointment authority in this instance."
