Robert Harward turns down Trump's national security adviser offer

On to plan C.

From BBC:

Quote:
US President Donald Trump's choice for National Security Adviser has turned down the job offer.

Retired Vice-Admiral Robert Harward was widely tipped for the post after Mr Trump fired Michael Flynn on Monday.

A White House official said Mr Harward cited family and financial commitments, but US media said the sticking point was he wanted to bring in his own team.

Mr Flynn had misled US Vice-President Mike Pence over his conversations with Russia's ambassador to the US.

The latest setback emerged hours after Mr Trump robustly denied media reports of White House disarray, insisting his administration was running like a "fine-tuned machine".
The CNN email had a different spin:

Quote:
Retired Vice Admiral Bob Harward has turned down President Donald Trump's offer to replace the fired Michael Flynn as national security adviser, sources say.

A friend of Harward's said he was reluctant to take the job because the White House seems so chaotic.

Seriously, after 8 years of no drama, serious leadership, we're going on a month of clown shows.
What has congress done in the first month?
Trump still hasn't filled his cabinet.
All agenda, no action.

Do you think it's going to change?
What do you expect when the person in charge is not competent to fill the position, here's a clue, expect exactly what you have been getting.

AHHHH.....well, of course. Why didn't we think of that? And what about all those other cabinet positions? Todd Ricketts (Sec of Commerce)--co-owner of the Cubs. Betsy De Vos--Amway and Blackwater. Mnuchin, Ross, Price, Sessions??
You’ve got a group of entitled, out-of-touch billionaires who are going to be bossed around by an ignorant, bigoted, out-of-touch billionaire. It is beyond credibility that they are going to be able to accurately reflect the needs of working-class citizens who rely on leaders in Washington to fight for them....but it sounds like at least ONE of them said "Uhhh....no thanks."
Apparently Harward has some moral/ethical high ground.

Puh- leeeze, the crooks call it "multi-level marketing". That makes it OK in their minds.
