American Thinker: The press and its Deep State allies are all down in the weeds of high school-style politics, their crocodile tears glistening as they lament President Trump’s supposed inability to get anyone to serve as his chief of staff. Here’s the flavor from Business Insider:
Following multiple rejections this week from candidates who were on his short list – including former Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey and Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff Nick Ayers – Trump became agitated by the news reports that painted an unflattering picture of what was supposed to be a highly sought-after job, the senior White House official reportedly said.
Vice President Pence’s chief of staff, Nick Ayers, didn’t want the job. Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie didn’t want the job. As if either of those guys would be the right man for the job, what with Ayers’s family obligations as the father of little kids, and Christie, well, because he is self-serving Chris Christie. I wouldn’t trust the latter with a barge pole in even the shallowest swamp.
Enter Mick Mulvaney, brightest star of the Trump administration, and up till now the chief of the Office of Management and Budget as well as the director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a man of zero scandals; the competence to run two tough green-eyeshade federal agencies at once, a toughness that can stand up to Deep State; and, most important, the fight in him to crush leftists. Mulvaney and Trump see eye to eye on the issues and know that the economy is Trump’s hole in one.
