  • Appointment Watch: Hamilton and Hochberg

    The mainstream media continue to ignore President Obama’s appointment of bizarre personnel to run the government. Personnel is policy. That being the case the American people need to know about these appointments. This week we look another couple of Obama appointees. These are not isolated incidents or an occasional bad apple. These folks are representative of the appointments he is making with little or no push back from the Senate during the confirmation process.

    David Hamilton, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit

    • Hamilton is currently a U.S. District Court Judge.
    • Hamilton was rated as unqualified by the American Bar Association when he was nominated for that position.
    • Hamilton’s rulings as a judge have drawn strong criticism by the 7th Circuit.
    • A vote on a cloture motion regarding Hamilton’s nomination is expected early this week.

    Fred Hochberg, Chairman of the Export-Import Bank

    • Hochberg’s pasts gives the appearance that he obtained his position due to campaign fundraising prowess rather than management ability.
    • Hochberg was one of the fundraisers who was rewarded with a night in the Lincoln Bedroom during the Clinton Administration.
    • Hochberg on reasons for microfinance loans to women: “because men spend it on women and booze. I say let’s just cut out the middleman.”
    • Hochberg was confirmed, without one Senator objecting, by the Senate on May 14, 2009.

    These are just a sample of the people President Obama is placing in positions of power within his Administration. If you want more information on these three and many others, please visit: http://www.getliberty.org/content.asp?pl=187&contentid=187
