Erroll Southers, Obama's choice to head TSA, withdraws nomination

Another one Bites the Dust, and another one gone, and another one gone, another one rolls under the bus.

From The Washington Post:

Yea, I know this is coming from a liberal rag, but I am on the mailing list because I like to keep an eye on the enemy. And it seems the left are eating their own.

The Obama administration's choice to lead the struggling Transportation Security Administration withdrew his name from consideration Wednesday, just weeks after revelations that he had provided misleading information to Congress prompted several Republicans to suggest that his nomination would not move forward without a fight.

Now, I must stress time and again that our readers and listeners of the Uncooperative Radio show read between the lines. Always, strive to find the truth beneath the lies. Let's continue.
Erroll Southers, a former FBI agent and homeland security specialist, was presented as a leader who would improve the TSA's sprawling operations and enhance passenger screening to prevent such attacks as the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a Detroit-bound airliner.

But GOP opposition to Southers escalated rapidly after The Washington Post reported that he had given Congress and the White House misleading information about incidents two decades ago in which he inappropriately accessed a federal database to obtain information about his estranged wife's new boyfriend, possibly in violation of privacy laws.

In a statement released by the White House, Southers blamed congressional critics motivated by "political ideology" for the troubles that overshadowed his nomination.

"It is apparent that this path has been obstructed by political ideology," he said. ". . . My nomination has become a lightning rod for those who have chosen to push a political agenda at the risk of the safety and security of the American people. This partisan climate is unacceptable and I refuse to allow myself to remain part of their dialogue."

Yea, it's not about you "dude", it's not about your actions or choices in life, "dude from Chicago", it's about everyone else. Bite Me. You suck, everyone that President Baracus Obamanous has appointed, "sucks". Our government "sucks". AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. WE WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK! Ok, I feel a little better, now.
