Scandals Could Prevent Corrupt Deval Patrick From Joining Corrupt Obama Administration

Posted by on Nov 15, 2012 at 9:54 am

Who are they kidding? Scandals are a resume enhancer with this crew.

Gov. Deval Patrick’s path to any post in President Obama’s White House will be littered with land mines planted in the ongoing hearings on Capitol Hill over the nationwide meningitis outbreak linked to a Massachusetts compounding pharmacy — as well as headlines about the drug lab scandal that has seen more than 100 drug inmates freed, experts said.

Rampant speculation has Patrick, who was an Obama campaign surrogate and White House dining partner last Friday, as a potential candidate for a top administration post. If he is nominated for attorney general, ambassador, Supreme Court judge or any other top federal position, expect both Department of Public Health debacles — which blew up on Patrick’s watch — to be the coals over which he is raked in confirmation hearings.

“Any little cloud, any potential black mark on a nominee’s record or their career, can be brought up to delay the process or end it,” said Robert Y. Shapiro, a political science professor at Columbia University. “It would at least lead to some discussion and debate that could be consequential.”

How does he explain Susan Rice? Besides, any opposition would obviously be raaaaacist!

    Hadn’t this administration proven they like nothing better than to imply, or accuse directly, racism or sexism at every turn in the road? Patrick may be a more attractive candidate simply BECAUSE he has controversy that can be exploited that way. You are against this choice??? Why that’s racist!!! The media will gleefully assist.

    Deval is not responsible for these scandals. He’s been way too busy writing books about himself.
