More Partisan Bullshit

Will it ever stop? There are certain institutions that should be exempt from partisan politics. The Director of Central Intelligence is one of them. Or was. Until now. Bush (the waffle) has tapped Congressman Porter Goss of Florida to head the Agency. Goss is qualified in many aspects, having served as a CIA agent for a few years. But, in this day and age, we don't need a GOP congressman, we need a man who knows how to run the Agency. Furthermore, Goss has been Chairman of the House Intelligence during the last 7 years, under which intelligence in America has failed. In short, Goss has been a failure. Many people think that, aside from George Tenet, Goss had more control over the CIA (especially its budget) than any single man in government. Some even say he was more powerful than Tenet. However, Bush let Tenet, a Clinton appointee who had served well as Director, take the fall. Now, its more partisan bullshit. I, for one, am tired of this. Let's elect John Kerry and put an end to it.
