    When Obama says that we need to 'pay as we go', he doesn't want us to know where the money 'goes'. Some of us are willing to be TAXED for this 'wasteful' spending. Is it great?

    I know a woman who is a United States Trustee who oversaw many bankruptcies in California, she is also on the faculty of a state university there and in the past was one of the people who was in charge when Pacific Gas and Electric went bankrupt.. she was very much a watchdog, when Rumsfield came on board she lost her job to a political appointee.. I asked her if she was upset, and she said this is expected when new administrations take over.

    Apparently this stuff happens when administrations change.

    It's amazing how this is a story no one is talking about. While it's a different position and all, remember the outrage when the Bush Administration fired those lawyers? Well, where are the questions here? If their is a legal process, 30 days notification, that is being ignored, shouldn't people be asking about it? This isn't to say that the 3 IG's weren't deserving of being canned, as I don't know the circumstances.

    They gave this guy 1 hr to pack itup. This is the internal affairs of upper level government. The question is what was he uncovering with Kevin Johnson, and how is it linked to th Obama administration. I have a feeling this story is far from over.

    Bo sponsored a law while in the senate he may have broken in firing these guys (who were supposed to be independent as opposed to the JD lawyers that Clinton and Bush fired.

    BO even got called out by McCaskill on this stunt. Chicago politics.

    Interesting notes this AM on this subject..

    That icon Ronald Reagan fired all the IG's when he took office... so he set a standard. Reagan wanted "Mean Men"

    Last year there was the IG reform act.. which was passed, the dems wanted to define the reason for removal, but the Republicans (grassley et al) beat it..

    no complaint just pointing out the facts, your beloved republicans had the opportunity to change this.. but passed it up. This does not have a lot to do with the newest favorite buzz word.. transparency.

    Be content in your beliefs, never deal with the substance of the issues or facts.. personally time to move on better things to do than deal with idiotic stalkers.

    If you go back to the origins of this post, to the victors go the spoils it is what it is.. this is politics, everyone does not follow Mr. Rodgers rules.. not sure Obama promised to do that.

    Obama is a lot like Bush, but of course all his groupies care about is Gushing, Fawning and Swooning, watch "The View Girls" they are your typical "Obama Slobberers" America could fall down around their ears and they would still be Kissing Obama's A$s.

    President Jug Ears:

    It's All Bush's Fault

    Ping Pong the president of N Korea says he's going to attack Hawaii, Reagan/Truman/Bush would blow the little scummy creep and his 'funny walking army' right off the face of this planet, just for saying that.

    GOD HELP US
