Of course none of this had any influence whatsoever on Mr. Walpin’s illegal dismissal.

    Mr. Limbaugh just mentioned this thread.

  2. tranquil.night says:

    Obama’s going to make the case that Walpin’s appointment was political to begin with probably citing this 2004 House Oversight Committee Report. Then he’s going to let his media carry this message while ignoring the fact that he violated his very own reform law.

    Huffingtonpost is a week out ahead:

    Someone tell me if Obeyme isn’t Al Capone revisited. He just hasn’t capped anyone……………………………………..yet!!

  4. proreason says:

    What happened to the idea that the President represents all the people?

    (just kidding)

  5. neocon mom says:

    The ONLY coverage of this story in the state run media came from the WaPo, that merely reported the White House’s bullet points on why Mr. Walpin was dismissed.

    Mr. Walpin, in his 2 LIVE interviews with Beck, did not appear addled or confused, and the interviews surely should have eliminated any illusion of ethical behavior on the part of the Obama administration.

    But let’s just pretend for a moment that everything is as the administration says it is. A man who has served in this post for over 20 years, through many administrations, suddenly begins showing signs that perhaps dementia is setting in. So they immediately fire him (doesn’t that jeopardize some retirement benefits for him, ones that an older man in decline might need in order to be properly looked after.

    Yeah, there’s really no story here worth investigating…My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Mr. Walpin.

    • neocon mom says:

      I was wrong about how long he served in this post, I recalled incorrectly from Beck’s interview yesterday.

  6. VMAN says:

    I don’t see anyone on the list that I would consider overly conservative. Just the opposite really. I think that this action was just a little ghetto thug shot across the bow to the country saying “don’t mess with my thug buddies”. I don’t know all the details but it seams that Walpin and his people got a little too interested in a ghetto thug O Hole campaign contributor / mayor / well I’ll stop now before I get in trouble. From what I hear Sasquatch Michelle the ghetto queen got the ball rolling. Can’t you just feel the love.

  7. canary says:

    It’s a fact he got his 3000 dollar pup from Ted Kennedy. 5.8 billion is insane. You can go to serve.com which is Kennedy’s project, but Obama pic is there. Start trying to find a volunteer job, and the the links don’t work right. They want volunteers. Why do they need 5.8 million dollars upfront, for dysfunctional.
