Ben Carson may not be experienced in the bureaucracy, but as the saying goes, it’s not brain surgery. :-)

His having grown up needing the services combined with the potentially negative optics of attacking a black man who has done so much good for the community (his only “sin” really being a Republican) meant they were not about to waste any of the limited good will and outrage to summon an opposition to his appointment.

And I imagine going against DeVos is going to be harder than they think. She has the resources to create a nice PR firestorm if she truly wants the job and its hard to sell her as being evil when she already spend much time and effort helping others.

Phrased as a continuation of the Democrats “war on women” and they might well collapse in disarray.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
