A-B-C. A-Always, B-Be, C-Closing. Always be closing, always be closing ...

Well, perhaps this was Thud Gregg's big master plan to shut down the Commerce Department.

Gregg Withdraws His Commerce Nomination

However, it has become apparent during this process that this will not work for me as I have found that on issues such as the stimulus package and the Census there are irresolvable conflicts for me. Prior to accepting this post, we had discussed these and other potential differences, but unfortunately we did not adequately focus on these concerns. We are functioning from a different set of views on many critical items of policy.

Obviously the President requires a team that is fully supportive of all his initiatives.

He only had about two-years to form some kind of idea the type of policies and programs that would be in an Obama Administration.

Not to mention he is a broom-up-the-ass "fiscally conservative" Republican (and from that "Live Free or Die" oasis of New Hampshire).

What happened - did he park in 30-years experience and all those principles he carries around somewhere and couldn't remember where, while he courted a cabinet post?

Did he think that, with Obama's quest for bipartisanship, he was just going to let Thud Gregg run wild in Commerce, continue the Bush Grindhouse program?

What a fuckin' bozo!

In the meantime, filling the Commerce seat is becoming, more-and-more, harder than getting a prom date for the president of the Science Club.

So there, Obama Team, ABC.

A-Always, B-Be, C-Closing. Always be closing, always be closing ...
