Re: Why does Obama consistently appoint industry shills to positions of power?
"why are you blaming Obama for this?"
In addition to appointing Comcast to guard the henhouse, he is being disingenous abot not being able to do anything.
If he can circumvent the U.S. Congress with his Executive Orders, which he openly brags about, what impediment is an agency that reports to him?
Whenever something goes wrong, and you can check this, Obama swears he knew nothing until the press covered it and he swears "I'll get to the bottom of this, this is unacceptable." This routine rings hollow, except with the 39% who approve of him.
His statement is a wink, wink, nod, nod to Big Telco: Don't worry fellas, you'll get what you want. Like he told Putin, "Just wait 'till after the elections."
Downvote away folks, but come January Obama and Big Telco get what they want...
