    And the Democrats always pick the best candidate and not the one that agrees with them. Right.:doubt:

    Read the piece, it is clear that IN FACT Liberals and Democrats got hired. The complaint is that not ENOUGH got hired. Meanwhile the claim that Conservatives were hired is that the few that applied did get jobs.

    What a joke.

    The justice department was pretty pristine, actually. The Honors Program was always a place where it was a meritocracy. No one's ever politicized it.

    So in answer to your question.... yes, IN THIS PROGRAM.

    The Justice Department is supposed to hire on the basis of competency and qualifications, not political ideology. Making hiring decisions based on political ideology, which is what the Justice Department did, is not only illegal, but intentionally politicizes positions which should not be political. I would think even staunch Republicans would view this as problematic.

    I suspect they would view this as problematic .... if a democrat did it. If Clinton had done it, it would have been one of the articles of impeachment. :eusa_shhh:

    This charge comes on top of the sharce by various attorneys working for the Justice Department that the Bush administration pressured them to find questionable election outcomes when there was not overwhelming evidence to support the case, too.

    Just another example, I fear, of the nature of the administration that, thank god, will be leaving office soon.

    Of course, expect nothing whatever to come of any of it.

    And yet JUST because people stupid enough to announce they are this or that party looking for a NON partisan job don't get selected is NOT proof they were discriminated against.

    We do not , in fact know how the Clinton admin hired and fired , well except he DID fire all the republican appointed attorneys when he took office.

    As for the bullshit claim about the 8 fired Attorneys, once again they had served their 4 years and there was absolutely no reason they had to remain , nothing illegal at all about that.

    Lets go back and review the records of the Clinton admin and see how many "conservatives" were not hired and how many " Liberals" were, shall we? Ohh wait the republicans didn't play petty games like that. This is all about Clinton getting impeached, until the Dems can pin something as bad on a Republican they won't stop. And you support this crap while claiming you decried it for Clinton.

    How republicans can turn their back to an administration that blantantly uses what should be an non-partisan, independent body of government is incredible. I have never seen anything like it. Volumns wll be written on the abuses of this administration. I can only hope that some of the abuses that have occurred in this administration has not set a precedent for future White Houses, either Democrat or Republican. How Nancy Pelosi can turn her back on this is beyond me.
