93. Oh please. The behavior and priorities of his DOJ are entirely consistent

with the behavior and priorities of the rest of his administration, which has been right-leaning and corporatist since Day One. That's just reality and history.

To claim that what they do is somehow against the President's wishes and priorities is about the most ludicrous CYA tactic for the President that we have seen lately on DU. You are asking us to believe that the President secretly has a liberal DOJ in his heart, when his own administration appointments and his own policy record fly in the face of that, and when he has never expressed a shred of discomfort with anything they are doing.

The "debating" tactics around here are getting beyond silly. When did claiming secret motives for the President that clearly contradict everything he has said and done since he took office take the place of a reasonable argument? ....Because that is exactly what you are doing here. It is like trying to claim that the Pope secretly wishes his bishops were spreading Lutheranism when he keeps appointing them and behaving like a Catholic himself. There is no evidence whatsoever for this message you are trying to send.
