Sounds likes it’s back to the days of the Clinton White House in Obama’s Washington.
Shauna Daly, a 29-year-old Democratic operative, was named last month to the new job of White House counsel research director. Though she is inside one of the most powerful legal offices in the land, Miss Daly holds no law degree and doesn’t list any legal training on her resume.
Her sole experience has been as an opposition researcher for Democratic political campaigns: She helped dig up dirt on rivals, or on her own nominee to prepare for attacks.
Some new kind of politics. Remember how the Democrats (& their allies in the MSM) kept accusing former President Bush of politicizing the Justice Department. Now, it looks like Obama is politicizing the White House Counsel’s Office.
Can someone tell me why you need opposition research in that office? Isn’t the job of the White House Counsel to make sure the president act doesn’t violate the law when discharging his duties?
Further evidence that “President Obama appears to be guilty of the sins of which his predecessor was accused.” Or, as Glenn put it, “Everything Bush is Obama Now!”
