Congressional Black Caucus recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary



Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee as a replacement for outgoing-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.”

    We have had Janet and now we get Shelia....that's almost a guarantee that DHS will be put down the moment conservatives take the reins.

  2. "One of Lee's crusades as a Representative of subtropical Gulf Coast Houston has been to end what she calls the government policy of giving hurricanes “lily white” names."

    "During a 2005 visit to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, Lee asked a guide whether the Mars Pathfinder had taken a photograph of the flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrong in 1969."

    Yeah......I want someone like that in charge of the DHS.
    ""All those who wore [Klansman] sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the Tea Party. Don’t you be fooled. [voices: "That's right.", applause] Those who used to wear sheets are now being able to walk down the aisle and speak as a patriot because you will not speak loudly about the lack of integrity of this movement." "

    "In 1998, for example, she was accustomed to having an aide drive her daily, in a government-leased car, back and forth between her Capitol Hill apartment and her congressional office one block away. One day she told a staffer who had failed to reserve a limousine: “You don't understand. I am a queen, and I demand to be treated like a queen!”"

  3. If this administration were a book it would be a work of fiction... No one could possibly believe it's true.

    She is a racist, plain and simple. And not a very smart one at that.

    There was a time, in this country, when the President and others in positions of responsibility wanted to put the absolute best qualified people in such important positions... Are they telling us that DHS is a sham and that it isn't really all that important?

    1. If this administration were a book it would be a work of fiction... No one could possibly believe it's true.

      Spot on.
