Greg Craig under the bus?

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the White House is no happy with Mr. Craig:

Obama administration officials are holding discussions that could result in White House counsel Gregory Craig leaving his post, following a rocky tenure, people familiar with the matter said.

Mr. Craig, the top lawyer at the White House and a close aide to President Barack Obama, has helped lead the administration's efforts on several national-security issues that have stirred political problems for Mr. Obama.

These include the closure of the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the release of Bush administration-era national-security documents, and efforts to find legal ways to indefinitely hold some detainees who can't be put on trial.

Mr. Craig didn't respond to questions for this article.

    My disdain for Gregory Craig no knows bounds. All due respect to the honest lawyers out there, Craig epitomizes everything that gives lawyers a bad name. In lieu of a heart, he has a black hole. He sold his soul out to the devil years ago. He sends a cold shiver up and down my spine.

    uh...ditto. hell is too good for him.

    Craig is a scumbag, but he only got as far as he did because other people, including some "good" enough to become POTUS, had no problem employing and promoting a scumbag. And what about Cuban-Americans who could even consider voting for Obama knowing he was tight with such a creature, among other choice specimens like Wright and Ayers? Ah, well, one must avoid being lumped in with "those people" in Miami at all costs, or so it seems.

    Asombra, to your average Leftie ... being a Cuban exile is right below being a Satanist-Child Molesting-Kitten Mass Murderer.

    ipso facto anyone who kills (Fidel,Che) or oppresses us "Gusanos" is thus elevated to hero status.

    If this SOB is does in fact get thrown under the bus (which I doubt), I hope they aim for just in front of the wheels.

    One tends to reap as one sews. And this one showed himself rather nicely, didn't he, when he, bubba bullshale, and the attorney butch arranged to kidnap Elian Gonzalez and consign him to a living hell.

    And for what? To placate an aged mass murderer's infatuation with little boys, secure shady deals with former dope-dealer turned food-baron cronies of the clintons, and signal American citizens, Cubans, and the world that the cagasstro brothers were now dictating policy to this country?

    And they think, these 'best and brightest' that an all powerful Creator whose qualities are love, justice, wisdom, and power, and who well knows that little boy's mother gave her life so that he could live in freedom, will just sit idly by and indefintely endure this carnival of evil insanity?

    You got it, Mr. Zecchino.

    There's a saying in Cuba that "the revolution always eats its own." Are we seeing something similar happening with Mr. "Hope and Change"?
