I was trying to find opposition to Comey's nomination back in 2013 on a blog that now is fill with people who basically assume afte the fact it was so obviously stupid. Before asking again in a comment, see the news (on Twitter, of course) Comey was fired. The details are shall we say dubious. The alleged reasons likely specious. In a horrible fashion. Simplistic arguments like "Democrats wanted this" is therefore unconvincing, including because not all of them did. Given whose in power, Comey very well might have been unfortunately the best bet, at least for now. Republican responses have been mixed, some supporting, some "oh well," some "concerned." More reason not to take anything they do and say seriously.
