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.


....



Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley, a co-sponsor of the IG Reform Act, is now demanding that the Corporation hand over its communications on this mess. He also wants to see any contact with the office of First Lady Michelle Obama, who has taken a particular interest in AmeriCorps, and whose former chief of staff, Jackie Norris, recently arrived at the Corporation as a "senior adviser."

If this seems like small beer, keep in mind that Mr. Obama promised to carefully watch how every stimulus dollar is spent. In this case, the evidence suggests that his White House fired a public official who refused to roll over to protect a Presidential crony.



hmmmm....

I get tired of saying this about so many aspects of this administration, but if you put a dress and lipstick on a pig.....it's still just a pig......this is just one more occasion where it rings true.

I'm not saying Michelle is a pig....it's analogous to the entire administration and how they do business.

I think the reference is to how Hillary threw her weight around, as First Lady, to get things done, and at times, in questionable ways.

And the apparent meddling of first lady Michelle Obama in the matter smacks of the corruption of the Clinton years.


....



If Obama keeps up with this "change," we'll be back to the Watergate era by Christmas.


...



The decks are clear to install lackeys who will protect the government volunteerism industry and its Democratic cronies. And a chilling effect has undoubtedly taken hold in every other inspector general's office in Washington.


uhhhhgg....So much for accountability.
