Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Here’s something you don’t see every day: a political appointee reshaping his department to reflect the mood of the people who elected him, changing priorities, reversing interpretations, shuffling staffing.
Oh wait, yes, you do. This is exactly what happens every time political power changes hands. Only now it’s going our way instead of Obama’s way, so Liberals are sputtering with outrage.
I don’t see why. Sessions’ changes to the Justice Department shouldn’t be surprising. I seem to remember complaining about a radical change in direction eight years ago and hearing someone tell: “Elections have consequences and at the end of the day, I won.”
Sauce for the goose, baby . . . .
We’ve got a generation of people – some in positions of some poiwer – who barely remember not having Barack Obama in power, and thus have no concept of anyone else ruling.
