Obama's Dirty Water Nominations

President Obama promised to clean up the political waters around the White House. Instead he nominated two prominent Bush staffers to key positions. The Bush White House produced effluent 24/7 from corporafornication. Here are the appointments:

Dana Perino-Broadcasting Board of Governors

Frances Townsend-
Homeland Security Advisory Council

Dana provided spun half truths or ignorance during her time as White House Press Secretary. Her explanation of interrogation torture was Fran Townsend worthy. Townsend butchered the White House Lessons Learned Report on Hurricane Katrina. It read more like a risk management document for two politically connected hospital companies, Tenet and LifeCare.

For their hapless public service Dana landed a job with public relations firm Burson-Marsteller, while Fran was hired to head up the risk management consulting practice of Baker Botts, the law firm of James A, Baker, III. However, private citizenship turned Ms. Townsend magnanimous. She'll now testify before the Senate Homeland Security Committee, something she refused to do as a public servant.

It's hard to clean the water with Dana and Fran's offal still floating. Change has a funny smell. Why does it sounds like jingling coins? If you want to hear Dana shill for Mark Penn's Burson-Marsteller, it's on BeetTV. Penn worked in the Clinton White House.

Update 9-6-13:  Obama's Perino, nominated for the Broadcasting Board of Governors had this to say.   If atheists don't like having "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, well, "they don't have to live here."  "I'm tired of them." She continued, "I remember working at the Justice Department years ago when I first started right after 9/11 and a lawsuit like this came through, and before the day had finished, the United States Senate and the House of Representatives had both passed resolutions saying that they were for keeping ‘under God’ in the pledge."  "If these people really don't like it, they don't have to live here," she concluded.
