The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Obama regime acts like this is their money. They have abused the Public trust...
They have. Over and over again.
It continues to unfold.
yep... it’s popcorn time. this is going to be good.
In all seriousness, this has all the markings of a true scandal. It will be interesting to see if the MSM has any interest at all in giving more than just bare minimum coverage.
I'm not holding my breath.
This is an illustration for the corporations of how to play ball with the Obama Regime. If you want government to smooth the way for you, kick in your campaign donations. Otherwise, expect rough going.
Watergate is a misdemeanor compared to this scam.
I’m going to guess that Obama isn’t going to run in 2012, and he’ll pull out because of some “illness”.
Not an excuse, after all he is supposed to be the leader. A leader, not a follower.
It would be eminently satisfying were Obama drummed out of the Oval Office via one of his pet projects.
The CYA caper intensifies. Who will be left holding the bag? :-)
Wow. The big news here is the Washington Post is covering this scandal. I never thought I’d see one of the commie rags doing that on any Obamanation scandal.
Biden’s half billion dollar photo op - wonderful.

Always a rush when Obama needs that money to turn around and jump back in his campaign pockets...
Even the Compost is waking up? A little late, ya think.
Throw this POS out. Impeachment proceedings should be filed tomorrow (a year late, imo). There is no waiting another year for this. Inexcuseable,.
WP will probably do more to cover up the scandal than cover it.
