Blatant corruption, anyone?
As reported by the Washington Times, half a million taxpayer dollars were used by Barry Obama not to create "shovel ready" jobs, but to run campaign ads on MSNBC's shows, specifically the shows of two of his most strident water-carrying sycophants.
Labor Department spends stimulus funds for ads during Olbermann, Maddow shows
Ever since Obama grabbed the nation's checkbook and started handing out stimulus cash, we're heard and seen how it's been channeled to Obama donors and supporters instead of being used to create public works like roads or bridges as we were promised when the Democrat-run Congress passed the spending bill. But this is just over the top, even for the First Kenyan. How does it create jobs to run Obama ads on two shows that pretty much no one but the Obama faithful even listen to? It should be clear to the whole country by now that the only jobs Barry cares about creating or saving are jobs for his cronies and suck-ups, and his own, of course. He couldn't care less about the rest of us and it's probably giving him a great deal of pleasure to keep rewarding his lapdogs and living the lavish life on our dime while unemployment continues to rise, gas prices climb, and foreign threats continue to grow.
I would suggest that when President Romney takes office in January, that an investigation of the whole corruption-plagued stimulus program be undertaken just as soon as we can get the GAO's office cleaned up and purged of Obama appointees and that every mis-spent dollar be reclaimed from the companies and individuals that it was awarded to, at least those that haven't already gone bankrupt. (Those need to be referred to the Attorney General's office for fraud investigation and criminal trials.) If Romney is any kind of man, he'll have MSNBC writing a check back to the Treasury Department for every penny that Obama gave them, and failing that, I seriously think that the government ought to look at seizing Obama's personal assets as well as those of then House and Senate leaders Reid and Pelosi, who colluded with Obama by rubber-stamping his agenda and refusing to allow any checks and balances or assuming any oversight on how the money was wasted. They were either criminally complicit or grossly negligent and they all need to be held to account if only to serve as an example and a warning to the next bunch who consider abrogating their responsibilities as "public servants" as outlined in the US Constitution. This crap needs to stop and people need to be punished for what was already done.
Sigh...but who am I kidding? We can't even get the mainstream media to report on any of this because they're on board with Obama and the Democrat Party too.
Off to the ammo store to buy another case.
