Remember Asa Hutchinson, the Republican from Clinton Country?
Most Department of Homeland Security agents and other employees would rather forget him. As DHS Undersecretary for Border and Transportation Security, he was a big failure. Borders and transportation became less secure–NOT more–under Hutchinson. But he did get the Islamist Pander-Bear thing down pat. He was frequently seen at Hezbollah-financing La Shish restaurant in Dearbornistan, breaking pita with the most extremist Muslims (and kissing their butts). That includes a “former” Islamic terrorist and two known current agents of Hezbollah. And Hutchinson was a big zero at the DEA (which he headed before his DHS tenure), too.
While in his DHS position, here’s the “wisdom” he infused into the agency:
Eliminating the fear of deportation will be an incentive. Undocumented aliens will tell you they often have trouble sleeping at night, and leaving for work each day, not knowing if they will make it home at the end of the day.
That was in Hutchinson’s written answers to Senate questions posed to him in late 2004.
You want this guy back in any office? Sadly, he may be the next chief law enforcement officer in the nation.
Now, he’s entered into the mix of candidates for Lame Duck Bush Attorney General, a number of mainstream media sources are reporting. The Bush Administration doesn’t want to have two confirmation battles (for Chertoff and has replacement), so they may go with a non-sitting incompetent instead of one that is already sitting pretty (Michael “Serpenthead” Chertoff).
Lucky us. I will remember the Bush Administration for exactly this kind of thing: recycling incompetent retread Friends of W and failing to live up to the challenges of 9/11 and Islamism.
Asa Hutchinson is yet another poster child for that.
