    What people want is the removal of all the Bush political appointees who remain in DoJ

    But when the Bush people  wanted the removal of all the Clinton political appointees (which actually wasn't  true), that was wrong, but now it's OK?

    I agree that political appointees can be removed when a new administration comes in, no questions asked. It's OK now, and it was OK then.

    Career employees are a different matter, however.  

    And again, you think that removing the Bush era career employees is "de-politiclization", what all it is is putting in new career employees that agree with the new administration.  

    What you're saying is:

    Bush DOJ: Evil, wants to politicize the agency
    Obama DOJ:  Knights in shining armor. Don't care about getting their people in at all, just want justice.

    Are you really that naive?

    Again, hypocrisy, and I'm sorry you're not "intelligent enough" (to use your charming phrase) to see that.

      that for the first time Bush used political litmus tests against career hires? Do you realize Monica Goodling claims she took an oath personally to Bush and not the Constitution? Are you aware of the Liberty University "graduates" hired into career positions. Over a hundred I belief from a non-accredited far right wing "religious" institution?

      This is the joke of a DOJ, the Shitboy was putting together, Karl. But then you knew that didn't you.

      I'm only surprised your ID isn't "The Architect".
