MTO’s Jeff Bleich: “I was very proud. I didn’t throw up and I didn’t pass out” Rory Little:”The real question is what does Jeff Bleich want to do?

Bleich, a former partner at Munger, Tolles & Olson, started his tenure Down Under three years ago and it’s rare for an ambassador to stay in the post for a second term…..

…Among Bleich’s professional highs have been hosting Obama’s visit to Australia in 2011 and helping negotiate a new agreement between Australia and the United States for the trade of defense-related items. The agreement was ratified last week by Australia’s parliament.

On the personal front, Bleich said the biggest thrill has been sharing the experience with his wife and three children, ages 20, 17 and 14 — who have “adapted beautifully” to the diplomatic lifestyle.

And then there was his ride on an F-18 fighter jet at supersonic speed.

“I was very proud. I didn’t throw up and I didn’t pass out,” he said….

…Court watchers also noted that Bleich, who served as law clerk to Judge Abner Mikva on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and to then-Chief Justice William Rehnquist, would be a judicial nominee unlikely to draw partisan attack.

“I always thought he would go on the Ninth Circuit at the next opportunity,” said UC-Hastings law professor Rory Little. “The real question is what does Jeff Bleich want to do?”

Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
