The part that really got me was this quote:

"I can attest to Tom's commitment to harness the power of communications technology to improve people's lives, to drive our global competitiveness, and to advance the public interest..." apparently Obama said that.

Really Mr.President? And how exactly can you attest to his harnessing power? And how did he personally improve anybody's life? Also, if he supported the AT&T merger, how is he advancing the public interest if that is clearly , very clearly, not what the public wanted?

"Tom will be a great FCC Chairman, and I urge his swift confirmation," said Genachowski. "I can attest to Tom's commitment to harness the power of communications technology to improve people's lives, to drive our global competitiveness, and to advance the public interest. The FCC's role has never been more essential, and with Tom's deep policy expertise and his first-hand experience as a technology investor, he is ...
