GOP watchdogs on Capitol Hill continue to chip away at White House stonewalls.

When last we visited the LightSquared scandal, one of the shady company’s partners was going under here in Colorado despite a $267 million fed loan and officials at the National Telecommunications and Information Administration were playing disclosure-ducking games.

The FCC is engaging in hide-the-docs, too. Sen. Charles Grassley has vowed to block Obama’s FCC nominees until the panel coughs up requested info:

The controversy over satellite-LTE carrier LightSquared could prevent the U.S. Federal Communications Commission from filling two vacant seats if a U.S. senator follows through on a threat issued this week.

Uhm, he got his Net Neutralit and “some” other substantial accomplishments.

Hell just say “fine”, “I’ll wait until November 2012 or maybe December 2012 to do more.

Hey, maybe when you’re in recess he can make some appointments? /S

Your threat is meaningless and hollow.

Well, at least it is a threat. What are the rest of the Republicans doing?

Wait Wait, I can answer that-—Nothing.

It’s only a threat if there is real pain behind or a consequence of consequence to Barry et al

But, yes, it’s a threat.
