Obama Appoints James Cole Deputy AG

President Obama named six recess appointments yesterday, including James Cole as Deputy Attorney General.

A few windbag Republicans like Peter King of NY are outraged...."shocked" they say. Why? Cole had the common sense (audacity in their view) to suggest terrorism is a crime that should be tried in our federal courts.

I'm outraged and shocked that someone like Peter King is an elected representative in our government. And good on Obama for giving King and his ilk a little pin prick. One of Cole's duties will be to sign off on the secret FISA wiretaps.

    off the hook, they elected him. i am stunned and shocked that over 50% of the voters in his area were stupid enough to elect this bozo to congress.
