HDR 196: Cronyism, Corruption and Scandal – Welcome To The Obama White House
ALOHA, ALL!!! I know we were all waiting with baited breath for Barry to announce his jobs plan and how we’re going to pay for it. He already introduced his “Buffet Tax” on millionaires – how will this bring down our deficit? It’s just more class warfare and pandering to his base. It more appropriately should be called a “Re-Election Tax” since Barry is hoping this “rich people are bad” approach will mobilize the masses to vote for him in 2012. Reaction to Obama’s plan has been swift: Ryan: Still Waiting for Credible Plan from President Obama | Committee On The Budget However, the GOP better get out in front of this ridiculous “plan” and frame the message…otherwise Barry and his minions will effectively use their obstructionist argument against them in 2012. It could enable Barry to win the election….But this White House has a sword of Damocles hanging over its head that’s ready to fall at any time – corruption.
Fast and Furious: Rep. Issa: Operation Fast & Furious Went To The White House | RealClearPolitics Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Rep. Darrell Issa (R-California) says it is now very apparent, if it was not before, that the White House was deeply connected in the “Fast & Furious” mission where guns were trafficked across the US-Mexico border.
LightSquared: Bombshell: General accused WH of pressuring him to change testimony for Democratic donor « Hot Air With the White House already reeling over the Solyndra collapse, a new scandal may have erupted today that could make the disappearance of $535 million in taxpayer funds look like a paperwork glitch. …an accusation made to members of Congress from a four-star Air Force general that claimed the White House pressured him to change his testimony to boost a big donor to the Democratic Party.
Department of Justice: The American Spectator : Deep Corruption at the Obama Justice Department Start rattling the chains. Start ratcheting up the hue and cry. Fire up the masses. It’s long past time to force mass resignations at, and possible prosecutions of members of, the Obama Justice Department — and, more broadly, of the West Wing itself.
Tell-All Book: Obama’s White House is a ‘hostile environment where women are treated like meat’ | Mail Online “According to the Post, former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn says in the book: ‘This place would be in court for a hostile workplace because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.’ The book’s writer, Ron Suskind, is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who interviewed over 200 people. It describes a “divided and dysfunctional” White House where ” no grown-ups are in charge.” Sounds about right.
And This Little Detail: Isn’t It Unconstitutional For Obama’s Stimulus Sequel To Be Introduced In The Senate? – Common American Journal “On Tuesday of this week Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid introduced the President’s much-hyped stimulus sequel, officially known as the American Jobs Act of 2011. Now, whether you’re for the bill or against it, isn’t it illegal for a bill like this to be introduced first in the Senate?” (Sidenote: “American Jobs Act” isn’t even the correct name – it has no name since no Congressman sponsored it in the House. See HDR 195. But when it comes to Barry and his crew, it’s obvious that rules don’t matter.)
Joke Time: An Illegal Alien, a Muslim and a Communist go into a bar. The bartender asks: “What can I get you, Mr. President?” (Thanks to Carl for the comedic breather.)
Final Thought: “It has often been said that power corrupts. But it is perhaps equally important to realize that weakness, too, corrupts. Power corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many. Hatred, malice, rudeness, intolerance, and suspicion are the faults of weakness. The resentment of the weak does not spring from any injustice done to them but from their sense of inadequacy and impotence. We cannot win the weak by sharing our wealth with them. They feel our generosity as oppression.” – Eric Hoffer
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
