Barack Hussein Obama has nominated James Comey to be the new Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In typical fashion he is a lawyer with no law enforcement experience nominated to head the nation's premier and most important law enforcement agency.

(CNN) -- President Barack Obama plans to nominate James Comey to replace Robert Mueller as FBI director, officials familiar with the nomination process said Wednesday.
Comey is a former prosecutor who worked in New York and Virginia, where his caseload included terrorism, organized crime and fraud prosecutions, the latter including executives from WorldCom, Adelphia and Imclone, an official biography notes.
He served as a deputy attorney general in President George W. Bush's administration beginning in 2003.
It is not important that he was a Republican, or even that he was nominated by Obama. That alone is enough to oppose him, but a more important reason to oppose him is that he is first and foremost an attorney.
Like the execrable recently resigned John Morton, soon to be former head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and ICE's previous head, Julie Meyers, both attorneys, their performance in office was horrible. They were nominated not to execute their duties, but to impose a political will on their agencies. Meyers and Morton imposed an administrative amnesty benefiting illegal aliens, with Morton waging war on the Constitution itself. Another attorney failure was Alan Bersin, former head of Customs and Border Protection. And the chief lawyer fail is of course Janet Reno Napolitano. What unifies them in their hostility to the Constitution and the enforcement of the laws of this country is that they are attorneys. Trained liars waging war on the law and Constitution.
Comey is just another of them. He will continue the politicization of the FBI. What the FBI needs is a long serving agent also with extensive experience outside the FBI. The Senate should defeat this continuation of the dictatorship of the lawyers. And if he is not, the House should cut the FBI budget in protest of this reign of lawyers. Important agencies should be run by those with experience in the particular field of the agency. Not some political hack.
