The curious case of the inspector general and a Presidential ally.
I listened to an interview with Inspector Walpin and what was done really stinks. This is a case of corrupt politics and favors paid back.
Inspectors General are supposed to be above politics and completely independent.
"President Obama swept to office on the promise of a new kind of politics, but then how do you explain last week's dismissal of federal Inspector General Gerald Walpin for the crime of trying to protect taxpayer dollars? This is a case that smells of political favoritism and Chicago rules.". . .Click here for the full article
This is just getting very stinky. If you follow the news and see Obama’s arrogance running wild this shouldn’t surprise you.
Here’s Obama’s reason for the firing. This does NOT hold water and he’s so full of crap he smells. Also, make sure you read the bit about the requirements by LAW that Obama totally ignored. Remember, his arrogance puts him above the law.
WASHINGTON -- Responding to criticism from a Senate Democratic ally, President Obama explained why he fired the Inspector General of the AmeriCorps without the 30-day notification required by law, calling Gerald Walpin so "confused" and "disoriented" that there was reason to question "his capacity to serve.". . .Click here for the full article
He is so full of it. Here’s the interview with Inspector Walpin. He sounds perfectly fit to serve to me. He is not confused nor disoriented. He was just thrown under the Obama bus because he dared to cross a friend of Obama.
Inspectors General are outside of politics and that is necessary to retain their independence. Now, I can only guess that the other Inspectors will not cross the Anointed One if they want to keep their job. Listen and you decide.
Now, here’s a great explanation as to what is going on. This should really show you what kind of “leader” we have. Keep in mind Obama is a Community Organizer and nothing more. That will help make sense of all of this.
OK, now about Obama’s Community Organizer roots. I’ve been reading about Chicago politics and this guy’s roots. They are rooted in Acorn and he was an agitator. He created and supported some groups that pushed the local government into getting what he and the group wanted. He’s not a leader, he’s a shit stirrer.
Chicago is truly the land of corrupt politics. Like so many large cities this one is no exception and he’s right in the middle of it.
Glenn says it much better than I can. Give a listen.
He really just wants to drive his own agenda and doesn’t give a crap about anyone else. So, if you think he cares about you and he doesn’t He’s in bed with special interest groups and this was very evident with his “No Show” at the Mayor’s Meeting.
He has refused to cross a fire fighter’s picket line who are in a labor dispute with the city. Now, the Mayor’s told their respective cities that they would use tax payers money to fund the trip because they would be meeting with the President. Well, he’s too busy playing footsie with labor unions.
Could he get any more arrogant?
The administration has inadvertently angered some of its staunchest supporters in urban America.
America’s big-city mayors are steaming over what they view as “a very dangerous precedent” set by the Obama administration in its decision to shun the U.S. Conference of Mayors annual meeting in Providence, R.I., this week.
In its attempt to honor the picket line of a local firefighters union involved in a labor dispute with the city, the administration has inadvertently angered some of its staunchest supporters. . .Click here for the full article
Just understand what is in the White House. We need to get the power away from him and all his power grabbing cronies before our country is broken.
