Diane Feinstein: Leon Panetta Terrible Pick

You have to respect the fact that Diane is facing reality, unlike so many leading Democrats, and, interestingly, CNN goes with a word in a headline one rarely sees in relation to a Democrat: “slams”

Feinstein slams Obama CIA head pick

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the Senate’s incoming Intelligence committee chair, slammed President-elect Barack Obama’s choice of Leon Panetta as director of the CIA Monday.

“I was not informed about the selection of Leon Panetta to be the CIA Director. I know nothing about this, other than what I’ve read,” Feinstein said in a statement. “My position has consistently been that I believe the Agency is best-served by having an intelligence professional in charge at this time.”

Don’t worry, Di, you are getting Change Clintonista’s Can Be Re-employed By.

Jay Rockefeller doesn’t think much of the pick, either.

Funniest comment in the thread

President-elect Obama demonstrated his judgment, intelligence, and political skills in running the best election campaign in history, defeating the Clinton machine and rising above everything the Republicans threw at him (or made up about him).

He’s now applying his intelligence and skills, in consultation with knowledgeable advisers, to the decisions he has to make. Everyone from Dianne Feinstein to ignorant bloggers are second-guessing his decisions, thinking they know better, before he’s even taken office.

Rather than bicker over every move Obama makes, let’s give him our support at this critical time in history and wait to see how he and his staff go about running the country.

I suspect that most of the critical comments on these blogs originate with Republican talking points or Republican hostility toward Democrats in general. We have become a very angry, divided country over the last eight years.

Something Democrats/Progressives/Surrender Monkeys never gave to Bush. Dissent will no longer be considered patriotic.

    I’ve always liked Feinstein. She’s never been afraid to break from the pack and display some common sense from time to time.

  2. She seems to be a nice lady. Liberal, but not progressive, if you know what I mean. I forget what the issue was, something to do with the jailed border guards, maybe, and I wrote her, and she sent me a nice email back, and it was actually her, not one of her peeps.
