Penny Pritzker, mother of subprime lenders, the woman whose bank was seized in 2001, the woman who owes the federal government nearly a half billion dollars, and just one more of Barack Obama’s dubious friends has turned down the opportunity to be Barack Obama’s Department of Commerce honcho. That was wise of her because I just don’t think, CNN and MSNBC aside, America was going to stand for an appointment of this character. I covered this idea here this morning. I just find it unbelievable that this woman’s name would even land in the hat for ANY appointment.
Chicago businesswoman Penny Pritzker, national campaign finance chairwoman for the Obama campaign, has taken herself out of the running to be secretary of commerce, a Democratic official said.
“She fears problems with her confirmation based on past business dealings,” the official said.
Gee, Penny. Ya think?
Now how come Barack Obama even considered you for the job? This says even more about him than it does about you.
Barack? Why would you even consider this woman for a job overseeing anything in the United States of America? Take your time in answering. I’ll wait.
Officials said she was not vetted.
What’s to vet, guys? You mean Barack Obama didn’t know about Penny and I did? All Righty Then….
