Shaun Donovan at HUD? Is This Some Kind of Sick Joke?

Posted by libhom Sunday, December 14, 2008

The latest horrifying Obama appointee is at an agency that is particularly important these days, the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Obama made one of the worst appointments possible by choosing New York City Housing Commissioner Shaun Donovan.

Under Donovan's and Bloomberg's leadership, housing here in NYC hasn't even kept up with population growth. Middle class and poor people aren't just being squeezed out of Manhattan. The same thing is happening in Queens and Brooklyn. Most of the government money to subsidize affordable housing for middle class and lower income people here is being misused to develop luxury condos that need no government subsidies.

It turns out that Donovan is a yet another Clinton Administration retread (AFP 12/13/08).

Donovan, currently the New York City Commissioner of Housing Preservation and Development, is an architect who previously served in the Housing Department under former president Bill Clinton.

Obama is sending a clear message with this appointment: middle class and poor people suffering in the housing crisis can go fuck themselves.

  2. I'm beginning to get it.

    Obama made a deal with the Clenis: if he by-passed the many smart, exciting and accomplished men and women out there who are available to work in his fledgling cabinet, and instead harvested old Clinton team players, the prize would be the Clenis' support in the General Election.

    How else do you explain Obama asking the vile, lying and homophobic Borg Queen to be his Secretary of State?

    Obama's made a deal with the Devil.

  4. This is not "change I can believe in", it's "I believe there's no changin'".
