It's official. Judd Gregg is a wimp.

This week, New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg decided that it would be better for him to continue being a Republican obstructionist in the Senate rather than help the President move the United States out of this historic economic crisis. By turning down his President’s request to serve as Secretary of Commerce, Gregg chose partisan politics over progress.

“It has become apparent during this process that this will not work for me,” Mr. Gregg said, “as I have found that on issues such as the stimulus package and the census, there are irresolvable conflicts for me.”

What a wimp! He’s not able to put aside personal politics to serve his country. He doesn’t believe enough in his own ideas to work for them in a bi-partisan administration.

He shouldn’t wait for 2010 to step down. He’s an embarrassment to those of us in New Hampshire who believe in real public service.

  1. Why would Mr.Gregg continue to block progress and decline being Secretary of Commerce over personal feelings. How irresolvable can these conflicts be to turn down an opportunity to be a part of this new team. It doesn't make any sense to me.
