Congressional Black Caucus recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary
Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee as a replacement for outgoing-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.”
A letter dated July 25 and signed by CBC Chairwoman Rep. Marcia Fudge, an Ohio Democrat, urges President Barack Obama to consider Jackson Lee for the position formerly held by Janet Napolitano, the first woman to hold the position. Napolitano resigned earlier this month to become president of the University of California.
“Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security,” the nomination letter reads.
I know I’m a bit late to the party on this story, I would have already had something up on this but my Internet connection and phone has been down ALL day, today of all days.
There are many reasons that Sheila Jackson Lee should NOT be the Secretary of DHS, and none of it has to do with her *race*, it has to do with the fact, yes, the FACT that Sheila Jackson Lee is too stupid to breathe if it required any thought process.

The list of gaffes, errors and sheer stupidity go on and on.
In my opinion the above tells me ALL I need to know about Sheila Jackson Lee and her own brand of incompetence. That incompetence will make her the ideal candidate to take a Cabinet position in the Obama regime!
And for what it’s worth; what does this say about the Congressional Black Caucus and their support OF Sheila Jackson Lee?
One last thing; send this along to your Congress members and Senators. If they’re not too busy with their own committees and such, maybe they’ll take a look at this and work hard in an effort to keep this FOOL, Sheila Jackson Lee OUT of the regime.
Yes, that last IS directed at a particular Member of Congress. He KNOWS.
