    I'm sick and tired of Obama appointing Republicans to what is supposed to be a Democratic administration. Granted, he does it because he's Republican-lite at heart, but Christ on a crutch, can't he at least remember he ran as a Democrat when he's making appointments.

    Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles. It is by the picket line and direct action that true freedom will be won, not by electing people who promise to screw us less than the other guy.

    •  According to you Mr. Perez is "right wing" (0+ / 0-)

      This is a gentleman who has worked on Civil Rights issues for many many years, and yet you are condemning him as a Right Winger.

      I could only imagine that you have done this because your record of being a "Democrat" or advocating for the Civil Rights of others is far superior to his and the "Republican-Lite Obama", correct?

      It should be noted that Thomas Perez was also a special counsel to late Senator Edward Kennedy on civil rights and immigration reform issues.

      So, he is not "Right Wing" in the estimation of  Ted Kennedy but, to you, I guess, a far more respected standard-bearer of the Democratic Party, Perez is sorely wanting....

      I understand....
