I've got my fingers crossed that he is selected and stays true to his beliefs.

OH MY GOD THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Sorry for the foul-mouthed all caps, but seldom have I been this excited about a political appointment.

 

Now, as others have alluded, let us hope this "appointment" does not devolve into a "disappointment."

 

I have met John Allison and read his book on the financial crisis, and he strikes me as a man of integrity.

 

Given Allison's heavy involvement with ARI, maybe his selection will shut their traps about Trump being a "fascist"!

I wonder if this will get him excomminicated from ARI.

 

Incidentally, David Brat, who made big news in 2014 by defeating the House Majority Leader in a primary, was a teacher (at Randolph-Macon) in the Allison-funded program.

Sorry, folks. Allison was on Trump's short list for Treasury Secretary. Trump picked Steve Mnuchin.
