Bush withdraws ‘swiftboater’ nominee for ambassador post

Sam Fox, one of the contributors to the Swiftboaters against Kerry will now be looking for another job since BushCo has withdrawn his name for consideration as an ambassador. Of course this job was a payback for being a Swiftboater during the last Presidential election.

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Bush on Wednesday withdrew the ambassadorial nomination of businessman Sam Fox after Democrats denounced Fox for giving money to a controversial conservative group that undermined Sen. John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign.

Kerry, D-Mass., had criticized Fox because of a $50,000 contribution that Fox made in 2004 to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.

Many Democrats blame the group for sinking Kerry’s presidential hopes that year after it aired a series of controversial ads that impugned Kerry’s military record in the Vietnam War.

“Sam Fox had every opportunity to disavow the politics of personal destruction and to embrace the truth,” Kerry said Wednesday. “He chose not to. The White House made the right decision to withdraw the nomination. I hope this signals a new day in political discourse.”

Complete article is here. BushCo is screaming that the Dem’s are playing Politics..gee, using politics? Didn’t the Repubs do the same thing for the last 12 years and counting? Sam Fox is not qualified for an ambassadorship unless you count his political fundraising for BushCo..interesting..no?

  1. I would have thought you’d be taking that particular firing as a good thing.However, let’s fact it – presidents have the right to fire these attorneys. Clinton fired many more during his reign – and yet the media didn’t say much at all about it, and never criticized the firings.Come to think of it – neither did I.

  2. fact = face.Hey, the laptop keyboard is a challenge for me.

  3. Ah well. I’m sure the guy could get a job as a Faux News commentator. It seems all the GOP losers end up there.

  4. Steven, Clinton and Reagan both canned all their prosecutors..at the BEGINNING of their terms. This post isn’t about the USA’s however..its about political favors for idiots that forget the internets hold lots of information that can come back to haunt them.That goes for both sides of course..but the rightwingers are feeling the sting now..cuz the Dem’s weld the powerful tools. Ain’t it wonderful!

  5. Truffle, Fox doesn’t hold a coversation worth a shit. He wouldn’t even make it on Faux Noise.He’s a rich ol fart that had hoped to get some cushy ambassadorship..too bad the Dem’s outed his dumb ass..for him anyway 🙂
