But other than the criticality of appointing
them NOW, he didn't have to deal with that pesky Congress. AMERICAblog
writes about an "asshole Gordon England" who is Assistant Secretary
of Defense. Gordon England is one of King George's recess appointments back in January
this year dKos has the entire list
. . .
Prior to joining the administration of President George W. Bush, Mr. England served as executive vice president of General Dynamics Corporation from 1997 until 2001. In that position, he was responsible for two major sectors of the corporation: Information Systems and Technology and International. Previously, he served as executive vice president of the Combat Systems Group, president of General Dynamics Fort Worth aircraft company (later Lockheed), president of General Dynamics Land Systems Company and as the principal of a mergers and acquisition consulting company

I really need to weigh in on this asshole Gordon England

Joe, in a post below, quotes our illustrious Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England:
If the furor over the port deal should go on, Mr. England said, it would give enemies of the United States aid and comfort: "They want us to become distrustful, they want us to become paranoid and isolationist.
Now, my mom reads this blog. And I don't like gratuitous profanity because it's the easy way to evoke emotion when you don't have the right words. But Gordon England, you're a total asshole.
How fucking dare you invoke Osama and September 11 in order to get us to support an administration policy that is in fact CONTRARY to our national security interests? Just because Bush is in bed with the Middle Eastern oil producers we're supposed to roll over and play dead while you guys just give away that store to your petro-buddies?
How fucking dare you preach to us about being distrustful and paranoid?
You son of a bitches have raised distrust and fear to a high art. You have repeated violated the legitimate shock and horror Americans felt after September 11, abused our collective grief and pain and psychosis in order to push your own petty, personal political goals, and now that we catch you red handed, you have the balls to invoke September 11 again?
Gordon England, how fucking dare you, you un-American piece of shit. . . .(link)
