Someone explain to me why...

Obama would allow Comey to serve him? Sure he did what was right the first time, but you keep a snake around long enough and he is going to bite you! This was a big mistake by Obama! We should have a democrat running the FBI so this would never have happened.

1. What can Obama do at this point?

He can't fire him now, it won't look good.

4. Obama has governed like a moderate Reep.

He appointed quite a few Reeps to positions that would
have been much better filled by a liberal.

12. He has not governed like a moderate Rep!

That is a ridiculous statement.

3. Because

the President is a good and honest man with faith in his fellow man. He wanted to have good competent government despite party. Unfortunately, the other side is ruthless and full of resentment that a black man is in charge. I applaud him for at least trying.....

7. Excellent article. Hopefully this refutes the knee-jerk reaction to Obama as a stupid man.

8. So basically...

 

Obama thought he couldn't get a democrat to pass confirmation so he put a republican in? It was an olive branch and a PR move. Ugh... these things always end badly

9. Simple... because Obama was trying to govern in a non-partisan manner.

 

Call it naive if you want to, but he was trying to do what he promised to do: to be a President for everyone. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to put aside partisan interests for the good of the nation.

11. I agree. If we all would put aside the partisan interests all would be well.
