    Joe Lieberman leading pack for FBI director position

    Wonder what the liberals will find wrong with this?

    Joe Lieberman is wishy-washy on everything but Israel. He has voted for most every liberal plan that did not punish Israel in some way. He is a nice guy, but very political, and too old. The only reason the Dems are against him is because they fear he might be honest. I think he does try to be honest, but that he has that politician's ability to delude himself, whenever necessary.

    I want to see a tough, middle-aged man with an impeccable prosecutorial and investigative background. Lieberman is a bad choice, in my opinion.

    They probably are still pissed off about his endorsement of John McCain. I would be disappointed if Trump actually hired Lieberman. He needs to stay with the conservatives for his appointments.

    Parading Lieberman as the leading candidate for the post could be a ploy. If Trump appoints someone who is conservative and has solid credentials, the dems will make a big fuss. He can then point out that they were making a big fuss when he was considering someone much more moderate.

    Lieberman is rabid anti-gun and anti-2A. I wouldn't trust him to guard a fully loaded manure spreader.

    FBI director is a position for someone with highest level Law Enforcement experience not a wishy-washy politician.

    If this is the best we can do, we need to exhume J. Edgar...

    Yeah, he does have the sicko qualities of J.Edgar, but Wiener's a Libtard! I like Lieberman because he IS honest and he is strong on defense and will not let Israel go to hell, in other words he wouldn't let Iran push us around. But thats not going to be in his MO as FBI Director anyway. And Mike's right about his 2A stand and is the only reason I couldn't go with him in any cabinet post. I like him but no.

    What's wrong with the guy that's holding down the post now? McCabe? He is an experienced FBI guy. I think he would be a good choice, just leave him there and make it official. Or is that too easy and makes too much sense?

    But Trey and one of my senators are like when the quarterback told the team in the huddle he gonna give dat ball to Leroy. Leroy say he don't want dat ball. Hehehehe. Same with Trey Gowdy and John Cornyn, they say give dat ball to somebody else, they don't want dat ball! HeHeHe.

    I still say give it to Andrew McCabe the acting director. He wants it, you can see it in his eyes. See how he does with it. He knows more than anybody about what's going on there. If he doesn't work out demote him or fire him. Trump fired Comey he can fire another one. But give the guy a chance. He may be better than JEH.

    Lieberman has gone on record saying that if he' selected for FBI director that he will get the FBI involved in gun control and do an end run around Congress and the Constitution and get the assault weapons reinstated 'by other means'. Just what we need in the position of FBI Director; a man who willingly wipes his nasty butt with the Constitution.

    Trump can't possibly be serious about this. If he nominated Lieberman and he was confirmed, Trumps presidency would be finished in the eyes of those that elected him. This has to be a smokescreen for something else.

    Probably threw it up there as part of his trip prep for Israel, and to confuse the liberals (I hope). Lieberman might have been his daughter's or SIL's choice. I think he will probably have a letter from the NRA waiting for him when he gets back, and won't seriously consider him...I hope.
