A Missouri businessman who donated to a group that questioned the combat heroism of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in the 2004 election was appointed ambassador to Belgium.I Mean that headline....
Sam Fox, who contributed $50,000 to Swift Boat Veterans For Truth in 2004, was questioned by Kerry, a Massachusetts senator, during a confirmation hearing about his donation to the group that attacked Kerry's Vietnam War record.
The administration said today in a statement that President George W. Bush had given Fox a ``recess appointment'' to the diplomatic post. Such appointments, conferred under a provision of the Constitution when Congress is in recess, don't require Senate confirmation.
The appointment was announced a week after Bush withdrew Fox's nomination in the face of opposition organized by Kerry, who serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

What are they trying to do? MicroManage TheWar[dm] by mandating that the War President Be Limited To Merely The Laws OF MAN!!!
Clearly The Great War Leader Has Shown That War Presidents Can Hold Both Positions At The Same Time!!!! Never before has Such A Bold Proof Of the Ability to hold that a proposition is both true and false been so firmly and forcefully put forward by a War President as one More Ontological Proof of God!!!
