Re: [PumaResponders] 1476 NYT/Collins: How to Stock a Cabinet

If anyone wants to defend Gregg for refusing the Commerce Sec job, here's some ammunition from IBD (though the IBD story does not take comments).

Why A Commerce Job Goes Unfilled


The decision to remove the 2010 Census from the Commerce Department and give it to White House political operatives was a strong vote of no confidence in Gregg. 

It wasn't the only signal. On the day Gregg quit, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs declared the Colombia free-trade agreement was dead, too. "I think the concerns that (President Obama) and others have are still valid around that trade agreement," Semana, a Colombian publication, quoted Gibbs as saying.
