    WASHINGTON – Two federal agencies charged with keeping potential terrorists off airplanes and out of the country have been without their top leaders for nearly a year.

    It took the Obama administration more than eight months to nominate anyone to lead the Transportation Security Administration and the Customs and Border Protection agency.


    How hard can this be? This seems to be an on going problem for this administration.

    Nearly 200 top positions in the administration remain vacant a full year after President Obama was elected. USA Today reports the backlog puts President Obama behind his predecessors in terms of the amount of time taken to fill key jobs.
    The Senate has confirmed 366 Obama nominees, compared with 421 at this point for President George W. Bush and 379 for President Clinton. New York University professor Paul Light, a federal bureaucracy expert, says: "Obama is well on pace right now to set a new record in terms of lateness."
    There is no one permanently in charge of Medicare or Medicaid at a time when the president is pushing health care reform in Congress. Mark McClellan, a former administrator for the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, says the timing isn't good, "without a permanent administrator in place."

    Then again maybe this is a good thing
    After all how many of these wacko's do we really want in DC ?
    200 less is probably a good thing

    Coming to DC soon- followers of the "O"

    Well Hell. Look at the problem OL'BO had filling his cabinet. Shit they were all tax evaders. Its not wonder he can't find anyone to fill any posts. Hell. He probably forgot they are still empty. It wasn't on the telepromter.

    As I recall, it was Republican Pete Dominici who has held up the second round of Senate confirmation hearings of the TSA director. Why? Because he didn't adequately answer Petey's ignorant question about whether or not he would unionize all the TSA employees.

    Educate yourself, trots.

    Sorry, it was Jim DeMint. Dominici held it up the first time, in 2007. Thanks again, DO NOTHING Republicans!!

    Put the blame where it belongs

    On the Dems being too busy trying to pass this faux legacy (healthcare) for Papa Obama's one term presidency

    Maybe they did not make the short list because they paid their taxes

    I am serious.
    Did they quit because they valued politics above America? Were they fired? Were the jobs also vacant when Bush was president?
    Are the bush appointees still in the positions and Obama has not appointed replacements yet?

    Without that knowledge the entire premise of this thread is just bullocks.

    What a know-nothing you are. DeMint held up confirmation by preventing a straight up or down Senate vote, period, and his objection created a procedural hurdle that could take days of debate and test votes to overcome. It has nothing to do with WHERE you can read that information. Reading? You might try it some time.
