    I was going to start a thread on this. I'm glad. Saves the Senate one mainline member on the more conservative side. Getting low on that commodity.


    Anyhow, what does the "Department of Energy" do??? This white elephant was created by the Jimmy Carter "brain trust" (sic) to find ways to make the U.S. energy independent. Whooops!!

    They spend about $30 billion (that's BILLION) per year. Maybe they are responsible for bribing the Saudis and others to keep U.S. gasoline prices as low as they have been, as U.S. domestic production has diminished year by year.

    For the sake of our nation I just hope that Obama vets our enemies with more scrutiny than he vets his political nominations.

    This isn't about a personal vetting issue but about Gregg not going along with Obama's scam to create people in the next census.

    There's something wrong,something very discomfiting about all the stand-downs within this administration. I haven't looked it up :rolleyes: but I'm sensing some sort of record being set.

    But this is the first stand down that's related to what I'd call "fundamental differences", sudden fundamental differences reportedly related to the spending package.

    Of all the stand-downs, this is the one I'd most want to interview.

    It's not the Spending Package, it's that the census is a part of the Commerce Secretary's job and Obama doesn't want to count people but use models to estimate people - aka create people for his redistricting.

    Ohok, all I caught was a captioned blurb on Gregg, nothing specific so I didn't know it was connected to that beyond creepy political census horror. Like I said, "fundamental differences", as in a differing of opinion on fundamental issues.

    Even more telling is the fact he won't run again in 2010. Definitely the one I'd most want to interview, though perhaps best done in a very clandestine fashion I'm sure:cool:

    I imagine most of the reports are assuming it's based on the Spending Bill as that's the "News of the Day". It's about the Ghost People in the Census, though.

    The word is out now ... what some already suspected. Being chosen by Obama means either he wants you to help, he wants to use you, or he wants to bury you so you lose political power ... ahhh Barack's version of "Want to play a game?" Barack is Jigsaw??? :confused:
