Obama is not the only one that knows how to pick em.

Author’s Note: Now that President Bush is no longer in office, I have compiled an updated and complete list of what grew to be 42 Bush administration appointees who resigned in disgrace which also includes and supersedes (http://thedcshuffle.com/2009/02/11/complete-bush-appointee-resignation-scorecard/) the original list of 21 resignations contained in the post below. Click on the link above for the complete list. -Feb 11, 2009

NOTE: BUSH HAD TO HAVE BEEN OUT OF OFFICE IN ORDER TO COMPILE A COMPLETE LIST.

In no particular order, here is the rogue’s gallery.
I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby- Office of the Vice President Chief of Staff
As reported by the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/03/washington/03libby.html):

He resigned after he was indicted by a federal grand jury on five charges related to the Valerie Plame CIA leak controversy.
Mr. Libby was convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice and was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
His sentence was commuted by President Bush shortly before he was to report to prison.David Safavian- Administrator for Federal Procurement Policy, Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the President
As reported by the Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/10/27/AR2006102700486.html):

He resigned and was arrested the same day on charges resulting from the Jack Abramoff corruption investigation.
He concealed his efforts (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/19/AR2005091901859.html) to help Abramoff acquire control of two federally managed properties in the Washington area.
He also made repeated false statements to government officials and investigators about a golf trip with Abramoff to Scotland in 2002.
Mr. Safavian was convicted of lying and obstruction of justice and was sentenced to 18 months in prison.J. Steven Griles- Deputy Secretary of Interior
As reported by the Washington Post: (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/06/26/AR2007062601472.html)

Mr. Griles is the highest ranking administration member to be convicted as a resulted of the Jack Abramoff corruption probe.
Pleaded guilty to lying to the Senate about his relationship with Abramoff and was sentenced to 10 months in prison and a $30,000 fine.
An 18-month investigation by the department’s inspector general found that he had dealings with energy and mining industry clients of National Environmental Strategies Inc. even as he continued to receive payments from his former firm. The report did not accuse Mr. Griles of violating any laws or federal ethics rules.Kyle “Dusty” Foggo- CIA Executive Director
As reported by the Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/02/13/AR2007021301039_pf.html), MSNBC (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18622361), & San Diego Union-Tribune (http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/nation/20060512-0906-foggo.html):

Mr. Foggo resigned while he was being investigated for using his seniority and influence at his prior CIA job in Europe to steer business deals to his longtime friend Brent R. Wilkes, a California businessman and top Republican fundraiser.
He has since been charged with fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.Eric Keroack- Dept. of Health & Human Services, Chief of U.S. Office of Population Affairs
As reported by the International Herald Tribune (http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2007/03/30/america/NA-GEN-US-Family-Planning-Resignation.php), The Boston Globe (http://www.boston.com/news/nation/washington/articles/2007/04/07/doctor_who_quit_us_post_was_warned_by_state/) and The Washington Pos (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/11/21/AR2006112101335.html)t (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/11/21/AR2006112101335.html)

Roger, not sure if you are aware (well, yes I am sure but........) we are talking about Obama.

It's 2010, the grand experiment is failing.

When was Rush charged with grand larceny?

I believe he was charged with doctor shopping. If I am not mistaken, he pled out on the charges and if he wasn't a wealthy republican, he would have been in prison for a long time on a felony conviction.

If you will wait until Obama is out of office, you can get a full complete list of failed picks just like the list that was compiled after Bush left office.

Oh, OK. Earlier in the thread, you implied that Rush was guilty of grand larceny as well.

BTW, I suspect a wealthy democrat would have gotten away with it as well.

Typical Liberal tactic to blame Bush when their own short commings are brought to light. Obama is on the trail now and everything he is spewing is the same old blame it on Bush rhetoric.

Heck a wealty independent would probably have gotten away with it also. I guess it does not matter which party you are affiliated with as long as you have enough money.

Just pointing out others lack of judgment when hiring people that work for them just as others are pointing out Obama's lack of judgment for the people he has associated with and has hired.

Perhaps someone here could point out the Clinton appointees that resigned.

Well, since we agree, I guess I won't point out how ironic it is that you only mentioned 'republican' in your post, as if they have the market cornered on 'criminality';).

Or not. I know two people charged with the same thing and neither went to prison. Both got rehab and probation. Funny that I know one is a big lib and I don't know what the other is but neither are what I would call wealthy. Sure does make it sound good to say that Rush got off because he is rich, powerful, and republican so you stick with that one.
Before you go there Rog, I don't listen to Rush or any of the others. None are worth my time
