I actually don't have an opinion on the firing because that's the only place I saw the information. My point is how come I'm not hearing about it not whether the firing was justified or not.

I was thinking the same thing.

So would it be ok if the KKK would stand outside of the polling places with nightsticks? Same thing to me.

Obama is showing signs of major corruption issues.

Those armed idiots should have been arrested and jailed but no, free pass from the Obama team.

People had better wake up and fast.

Are you talking about TV media ? Heck you know who owns those stations.
They give you the news THEY want you to know.

What most here have failed to see in this case is that it was grant money that had been spent in such sad fashion. Do all of you know where most of the money ACORN gets to spend comes from? How about Public Allies? Both groups get nearly all their money from government grants. Now not all that money comes to them directly but groups that are aligned with ACORN have the same mailing address as ACORN does so ACORN launders all that money before they use it.

Public Allies? How many know about that bunch? It is a group that was originally begun by the community organizer we now know as Barack H. Obama. He got it going in Chicago about 1992 and when he left it to go into politics one Michelle Obama ran it for 3 years. Go to their web site and look around on it. You will find if you look a bit a map that shows where their biggest groups were located in 2008 at election time. That map looks so much like one that shows red states turned blue that it is unbelievable. Well Public Allies is very glad to tell us that they get most of their money from grant money. They have special grant writers in their employ and they are very good. Somehow Public Allies have run under the radar even up to now but some of us are trying to expose them.

Key Obama Ally Says President Obama Did Not Follow the Law in IG Firing - Political Punch

Key Obama Ally Says President Obama Did Not Follow the Law in IG Firing

Quote:
“The White House has failed to follow the proper procedure in notifying Congress as to the removal of the Inspector General for the Corporation for National and Community Service,” McCaskill said. “The legislation which was passed last year requires that the president give a reason for the removal.”

McCaskill, a key Obama ally, said that the president’s stated reason for the termination, “Loss of confidence’ is not a sufficient reason.”

She added that she was “hopeful the White House will provide a more substantive rationale, in writing, as quickly as possible.”
I'm shocked! Obama didn't follow the law - how surprising.
