“FBI Director James Comey’s famously independent streak is reportedly ruffling feathers at the White House on issues ranging from cybersecurity to rising crime rates — and the potentially explosive investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server. The Republican, praised for standing up to the Bush administration over a warrantless wiretapping program in 2004, may be proving more than President Barack Obama bargained for,” wrote a hope-filled Newsmax in March of this year.

Well isn’t that nice. Let’s get back to reality, where, in 2013, director Comey was appointed by president Obama.

Don’t think for a moment all Obama’s appointees haven’t been thoroughly vetted. Obama and his inner circle know exactly who all his appointees are. So to say Obama was compromising when he decided to appoint a “republican” like Comey is absurd. To radicals like Obama, those kinds of compromises are meaningless and counterproductive. To radicals like him, it’s more important to advance the Marxist/Statist agenda than to gain points for looking bipartisan.
