Ideology versus Competence: Janet Napolitano
By Lance Fairchok
Sorry Canada, its going to be A LONG FOUR YEARS!. In an article called “The Border for Dummies” Canada’s National Post asks a salient question:
“Can someone please tell us how U. S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano got her job?”
I think I can offer some enlightenment. You see, Janet is an ideologue. She is the kind of person who will pursue ideological goals without regard for truth, a person who can be expected to reinvent reality to fit the ideological vision of the administration, which she does with abandon. She is the perfect Obama Administration appointee.
Madame Secretary has no real security bona fides to qualify her as Homeland Security Secretary other than being a two term governor from a border state and having a political ideology in harmony with the new administration. She is not particularly competent and she does not articulate policies well, if at all. She is as gaffe prone as Vice President Biden. During a recent interview by the CBC Napolitano equated the Canadian border with our corrupt and violence plagued pseudo border with Mexico, even claiming that some of the 9-11 terrorists had crossed from Canada into the US.
