Morning Examiner: Obama WH drowning in scandal
Washington Examiner ^ | September 15, 2011 | Conn Carroll

Posted on 09/15/2011 11:26:27 AM PDT by opentalk

Drip. Drip. Drip. Whether it is Solyndra, Obamacare, or Fast and Furious, President Obama’s push for his “American Jobs Act” has been drowned out this week by the failure of his past policies.

Every night it seems there is a new angle on the Energy Department’s failed loan to the bankrupt solar panel manufacturer Solyndra. Not only was there a headline-grabbing hearing before the House Energy and Commerce Committee yesterday (at which Obama officials tried to blame Bush) , but the Treasury Department separately announced that their Inspector General (IG) would join the FBI and Energy Department IG in their investigation of the firm.

The Associated Press also came out with a new batch of emails showing career officials in the Health and Human Services Department had grave misgivings about a key source of early Obamacare funding, the CLASS Act. “At first glance this proposal doesn’t look workable,” Chief Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Actuary Richard Foster wrote. And CBS News reports that three more homicides have been tied to weapons connected with the Obama administration’s failed Fast and Furious gun-walking sting.

Obama has been reduced to telling adoring college audiences, “If you love me, you got to help me pass this bill.” Unfortunately for Obama, no Democrat in Congress loved him enough to introduce his jobs bill under its preferred title, “the American Jobs Act.” So yesterday Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, filed his own tax cut bill under that name. Nothing is going as planned for the president this week.

I think some dems hope to get rid of him without dealing with pushing aside the first black president just for politics.

They’re stuck.

Many democrats really want Obama to bow out and have another democrat run.

No beret intern yet, but there’s still a year to go.

Also this one has none of the charm that the last charlatan did.

Amazing how fast this is all snowballing, now.

Cooking up nicely, now, yup.

One might get the idea that the Left has stopped protecting Obama — that there’s just too much to keep buried — and perhaps they don’t want to try anymore. But they own it too.

Why mimic the media's mantra the first black president Being black doesn't make him hate this country, his commie roots do. Say it like it is - the first commie president. Now do you think they should be stuck pushing him aside?

None of these entities can be trusted to find and publish truth. They are all subservient to the Messiah and will prevent rather than promote wrongdoing and make accusations of guilt. They will hold no trial and certainly not hold a crucifixion

I was just wondering what the RICHTER number of the media ‘earthquake’ would be if this parade of scandals occurred during a Replublic Presidency.
I recall the MEDIA hysteria when Nancy Reagan obtained new china for the White House. Or when Dan Quale misspelled the word POTATO(E?). There was more flak over that than Pearl Harbor. George Bush the elder, sadly got ill and threw up on the Japanese leader, and the media carried on without end.
But “HE” is a liberal Democrat. Move on,folks, nothing to see here.

Yep and more Michelle vacations to come.

The millions to fake zip codes in the first stimulus fund, as soon as Obama came to office, still bothers me. Like robbing a bank, only no one cares.

They supported him and supported him and supported him. It is now time to cut their losses and run away. Obama has now become the third rail of political careers. Their only hope is that the last one out the door will get the blame.

Will never happen unless the impeachment procedures originate from someone in the black caucus. This guy will get away with anything imaginable. But he will also be the last democrat black president this country will ever have.

What an utter disappointment this loathsome guy has been.

And having someone else take the fall for no one in NYC being alerted about it. And we never learned who was in the plane. A payback to his muzzie friends circling around Ground Zero.

And taxpayers paying for his trip w/his chicago friends to Copenhagen to win the Olympics for his homies.

Democrats are working on the best way to kick Obama to the curb and at the same time blame it on Republicans.

I expect his polling numbers will “unexpectedly” continue to tank.

If only. of course, they would find a way to have a Repub leak it - or claim they did and the race war would begin in earnest. But a 'Barry loss' would probably spark one, anyway. No maatter how it unfolds: even a legitimate loss. They are so ready!

. But then, the rest of America, sooo ready for the right change.

This is something that REALLY needs to have an expanded investigation. This could bring this administration down.

For the 400th time his “past policies” aren’t “failing”. Obamacare, Stimulous, QE2, immigration, hate crimes and on and on have all passed! He’s succeeding in his Marxist agenda.

Boner and Cantor have just announced that there are portions of the “jobs bill” that they like. They didn’t get the memo on Tuesday. WE DON’T WANT TO WORK WITH A MARXIST!

What would happen is a group of grey suit Dems would meet with the Kenyan and show him the file. They’d give him a choice...resign...don’t run...OR if you will not then we’ll expose you for who you are. He’d lose everything...including a presidential library...hey he could even go to prison.

To be honest, I would not put it past the Dem’s themselves to initiate Impeachment articles on their own. Their party is being completely wrecked by the marxist. I could see them trying that to “show” the party is not corrupt, just Obama and his administration.

I don't think they can cut their losses and run.

Through their own allegiance to political correctness they cannot ask a AFRICAN-AMERCAN to resign! The only, and I mean only way they can do that is if Obama volunteers to resign.

However, if he refuses, what are they going to do? Moreover, what if he announces it? What if he tells his fanatic followers that certain senior democrats asked him to resign but he is not because he's fighting for THEM (his followers) and this is just another example of the Man sticking it to the brother!!!!

In fact, that is the tactic they used to be the Clintons (that campaign was not just Hillary, as Bill was maybe not running her campaign but he surely ran his mouth).

No, the dems have areal dilemma on their hands and theirs no good way out. The resign issue ala Nixon will not work. Barry is no Dick*, he won't do the graceful thing and resign.

If I was a conspiracy nut I would even worry that they'll (the powers that be) use some whacked out lunatic, give him a TEA party background, and then have him put a cap in the One.





* Well, he is but I hope you knew I meant Dick Nixon!

I don’t think Mr. Soetoro is as slick as Bubba or Hillary, nor is he surrounded by the same ilk as the Klintoons. If impeached, I don’t think he’ll wiggle off the hook. Now, how soon can he be impeached? I’d love to hear the argument that says he’s not “legit” and even the hint of impeachment would be an admission of legitimacy. Let the games begin!

Good point. Show the Kenyan the secret file on him (if it even is a secret to him) and allow him to resign without disclosing its contents to the press or public. I hadn’t thought of that.
