Amid the furor over controversies regarding Cabinet-nominee tax problems and the seismic battle over a nearly trillion-dollar economic rescue bill, President Obama made a little-noticed appointment that is now generating intrigue.
Shauna Daly, a 29-year-old Democratic operative, was named last month to the new job of White House counsel research director. Though she is inside one of the most powerful legal offices in the land, Miss Daly holds no law degree and doesn’t list any legal training on her resume.
Her sole experience has been as an opposition researcher for Democratic political campaigns: She helped dig up dirt on rivals, or on her own nominee to prepare for attacks.
The addition to White House counsel Greg Craig’s staff has alarmed some Republicans, who consider it a politicization of the office, and has irritated others who say that Democratic lawmakers who railed against Republican opposition researchers in legal positions in the past are now silent.
Well, there you go. Anyone who can dig up dirt can work for Obama’s legal counsel.
Isn’t that how Bubba Clinton got those FBI files?
Just wait until he creates a ‘truth squad’ office to deal with (READ: smear) any and all critics of his regime.
Daly will probably be in charge.

I more bad-ass than both of yall. I have 8 kids, 3 dogs, 2 homes, 2 businesses, and one wife. I’m on the front lines everyday too.
You are not a “bad ass”. You’re a financial train wreck ready to happen. Your “front lines” go no further than your own back yard. The day you go into harm’s way to serve this country is the day you can claim “bad ass” status. I and my fellow Soldiers (past and present) fought on foreign soil to protect your way of life and your choice to have “8 kids, 3 dogs, 2 homes, 2 businesses, and one wife”.
And you’re welcome.
This is what happens when a lobotomized cockholster with Tourette’s Syndrome goes wandering off without a chaperone. They drop in on blogs just to show off their ‘communication skills’:
Tom Hawk, Jim Rogers, Semper Stupid, or whatever faux name you’re using at the moment:
I bet you’re an esteemed member of the IVAW (Iraq Veterans Against the War); a motley crew of malcontents, problem children, and big surprise, military deserters who never spent any time outside CONUS except to flee to Canada or Germany.
You really need to learn more about a subject before you try to debate on here.
It’s hard to tell if you’re just trolling or really that stupid.
B. Hussein Obama had no business being a Senator let alone Presidential candidate. He launched his career from the home of two domestic terrorists; William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. He and Ayers’ pet project, the Annenberg/Woods Fund was a conduit for radical groups like ACORN. Aside from ACORN, Ayers, and Dohrn, he’s accumulated Tony Rezko, Hamas, the Nation of Islam, the Arab-American Action Network, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, Jeremiah (god-damn America) Wright, CAIR, Saul Alinsky, and Frank Marshall Davis, among his friends, supporters, admirers, and mentors.
There are reasons why he attracts these kinds of slimeballs. I’ve said this before: He’s a human bug light for criminals, despots, terrorists, and anti-American hate spewers. His policies are reflected in the company he keeps. No wonder you assholes love him.
Sorry to disappoint you, sweetpea. I was no ‘clerk typist’, although I’m sure your wet dreams are chock full of that kind of bullshit. FYI: In both Desert Storm and OIF, I was involved with intelligence operations forward of my unit. While you were shirking your duties by pulling your pud as a REMF, there were brave Soldiers in the combat zone. Which proves you’re all mouth and no balls. We got mortared, went through SCUD launches, minefields and IEDs, and killed the enemy on the streets of Iraq.
You probably never spent one fucking day in a combat zone, but you have all kinds of wild-assed stories to tell.
All the screeching about Bush’s “lies” is puerile bullshit. Some of it can be blamed on politics, most of it can be attributed to you assholes being pissed that GW backed up his threat to get Hussein and eradicate the Taliban and al Qaeda where they live.
As for wiretapping, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court gave its stamp of approval:
FISA has been quite successful in thwarting terrorist attacks on this country for the last seven years. The NSA is not interested in your phone sex with your boyfriend, ok?
Go fuck yourself. You’re not worth the time it took to make your ass, let alone giving you nihilist suckwads a forum to spew your cowardice.
