The Vetting Process


#1

Why do people have to be vetted? I can see if a direct employee had a secret criminal past that you wouldn't want him or her. But looking at whether, for ex, Hillary's husband has 'issues'?

Isn't this guilt by association? Yet we aren't supposed to judge Obama by all of his past associations? Bill gets blowjobs from teen girl admirerers and that's bad, but Obama cuts deal with slumlords and that's to be ignored?

The other issue is how Obama is supposedly blameless for the collapse of the current economy, yet the libs trumpet the stock market going up yesterday because of our new Treasury chief? The bad is Bush's fault but the market soaring is to Obama's credit?

I didn't realize how stupid some of my fellow Americans are.
