Hope and Change are here now! I hope this idiot is gone 4 years from now. What a dramatic change from the civility of the last administration.

The removal of a critic of one of Obama's supporters is typical political hypocrisy. "Do as I say, not as I do" may well be the phrase this administration will be known for.

There will be no follow up on this. Obama committed another act that is blatantly against the rules and assists one of his supporting organizations. The media will be silent.

Jake Tapper from ABC News has been following the story for the last few days. You can go to the ABC website for Jake's Political Punch section.

Also, the Los Angeles Times today reported about another Inspector General in trouble with the Obama administration.
Neil Barofsky, Inspector General and watchdog for the $700 billion TARP, insisted on examining documents about a financial institution receiving tens of billions of the bailout money.
The Treasury Dept. denied his request, but he kept on asking until he got the papers. Now the Treasury Dept. is re-examining his position and his authority.

You know, I never thought the Breeze would publish such an article. Is it possible they hired someone with a pair? Somebody who isn't gobsmacked by the Obama?

The other angle to this is sports and Mrs Obama. Yep, Michelle's brother is some NCAA coach in some program nobody cares about (except sister Michelle). This inspector was going after the ex-NBA star and Sacramento mayor who just happens to be buds with Michelles's brother. One call leads to another and Michelle gets Mr Obama to axe the old white man.

Chicago politics, Obama-style. Notice they called the old white guy senile too. Nice people we elected.

Well, L.A. Times waited a few days before putting this story on their website.

The Center for Responsive Politics just released their analysis on campaign donations:
ABC employees donated $124,421 to the Obama campaign, and a "generous" sum of $1,550 to McCain.

The only one at ABC news currently doing some reasonable unbiased reporting is Jake Tapper.(Watch your back, Jake!)

Michelle Obama announced that her chief of staff, Jackie Norris, will move to CNCS (the agency Gerald Walpin was overseeing) as a senior advisor.
Just connect the dots.

With Obama terminating inspector generals who are supposed to watch that taxpayers' money is not wasted, foolish spending like the following will continue:

*$11 million of the stimulus money for a rural guardrail at an Oklahoma patch of land with overgrown weeds and a virtually dry lake bed;
*$2 million to convert a vacant theater in Minneapolist to a dance center that will create only 48 jobs. But a company wanting to manufacture solar-energy-panels and create 360 jobs was allocated only $300,000, resulting in the company cancelling the enterprise.

With watchdog inspector generals out of the way and a biased media as Obama's cheerleaders, I have a sinking feeling as to where we're headed in America.
