President Obama To Name Supporter's Daughter To FCC

What can I say? This is purely a payback move by the President who said his administration would be the most ethical and open administration in history. Apparently this week nepotism is ethical and is being done somewhat openly. President Obama announced that Mignon Clyburn would be nominated to a seat at the Federal Communications Commission. Mignon Clyburn is the daughter of Democrat Congressman (and majority whip) Jim Clyburn of South Carolina.

As I said, this is just a payback move. Congressman Clyburn, the highest ranking African-American in Congress, was key to passing the massive $787 billion "economic-stimulus" plan quickly through the House in February. He also played a part in securing Obama's nomination during the Democrat Presidential Primaries by swaying other "super delagates" toward Obama. Since then, Clyburn and Obama have become somewhat close.

Now, for you liberals out there screaming at your computer screen right now, I know other Presidents have done this kind of thing. But, how many of those Presidents made their whole campaign about "Change" from the way things were done before? No, not promising change because they all do many made it their whole campaign like Obama? How many promised the "most transparent" administration in history? Just Obama. The most ethical? You might see my point. This nomination is not ethical, it's not change, and it's barely transparent.
