According to the former White House Counsel aide, who was transferred from that office after the resignation of White House Counsel Gregory Craig, each of the above executives answered “No” to Question 10S of the SF-86 supplement form traditionally filled out by potential nominees for presidential appointments.
10S. Is there anything in your personal life that could be used by someone to coerce or blackmail you or is there anything in your life that could cause an embarrassment to you or the President if publicly known?
__Yes __No. If so, please provide full details.
But to date, neither Roberts nor Philips has been formally vetted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. “There may have been preliminary work done, but those kinds of commissions aren’t a high priority,” says the former counsel office aide. “Then again, Van Jones wasn’t properly vetted, either.”
Despite successes in gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New
Jersey and the Massachusetts Senate race, Republican National
Committee chairman Michael Steele continues to
take hits from within his
own party. He was recently criticized for holding the party’s winter meeting in Hawaii. And senior Republican Party leaders continue to mount whispering campaigns against Steele, portraying him as a money-grubbing, unethical opportunist, who will put personal political goals before the party’s. The latest rumors started before Steele left for Hawaii: that he attempted to have the RNC buy a private jet to ease his travel itineraries.
RNC sources say there is no truth to the rumor. “You hear these things all the time. Six months ago, he was buying furniture for his home using RNC funds,” says a current RNC aide. “Now it’s a private jet. For whatever reason, people in this party can’t get over having a man who actually wants to lead in that leadership position. He’s ruffled feathers, but he’s also doing a good job, and the recent victories show that.”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
