This whole situation with James Comey politicizing the FBI investigation and needlessly editorializing into the content of emails is an example of why bipartisanship doesn’t work when it comes to political appointments. President Obama has clearly made mistakes with his mistaken approach to his dream of bipartisanship, resulting in weaker policies, and political appointees like James Comey.
By choosing Mr. Comey, a Republican, Mr. Obama made a strong statement about bipartisanship at a time when he faces renewed criticism from Republicans in Congress and has had difficulty winning confirmation of some important nominees. At the same time, Mr. Comey’s role in one of the most dramatic episodes of the Bush administration — in which he refused to acquiesce to White House aides and reauthorize a program for eavesdropping without warrants when he was serving as acting attorney general — should make him an acceptable choice to Democrats.
It is my hope that the Clinton administration team will not make this mistake. James Comey needs to go on November 9th. Also, the Republicans have made it very clear they will continue to obstruct, conduct impeachment hearings against Clinton, and they have NO interest whatsoever in governing! We cannot function as a Republic anymore in this matter with a divided government stuck under gridlock. The only solution right now is a one-party domination of the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the White House!
Let James Comey be a reminder to you why bipartisanship doesn’t work, and why we need to keep on getting the vote out!
