No Oversight

Rooting out waste, corruption....or not?

July 12, 2013

Among the true heroes of public service are men and women serving in government inspector generals’ offices. They root out waste and wrongdoing, bringing it to taxpayers’ attention....

Every time you ignored me when I ask you why you weren't outraged. It's clearly to everyone here that you're only trying to save a little face now. Sorry dude but it's not working. We all know who you are.

You were ask directly a dozen times on two different threads. You had ample opportunity to answer. You chose not to. As Dad used to say, actions speak a lot louder than words.

The answer to your last question is simple.

Gridiron.

You ran from the question for a week which tells us all that you had no problem when President Bush was the one being obstructed, Obama is responsible because he did t bither nominating anyone cor the positions and I know the answer to the question. We all do.

I know the answer but I think you need to admit it grip. Tell us why you feign outrage of Republicans obstructing Obama political appointees yet you have no problem with Democrats doing the EXACT same thing to President Bush?

Jebus chrimity man, I'll bet all 3 of your 3rd grade teachers ended up bald. No one can be that dense.

I wish I could draw you a picture but that's not feasible so I guess I have to hope I can dumb it down enough so you can understand. Even though that's like asking Einstein to teach 2nd grade science, I'll try.

On July 12, Denver made a comment about Obama's priorities. I ask a general question as to what the #1 priority should be of any President.

A day later you made a comment about obstructionism, not your first on the topic. I ask if you were as outraged at Democrats for their obstructionism and instead of answering, you've spent a week trying to duck the question with your own bait and switch.

Two different comments, two different viewpoints on the article, two different responses.

Understand or do I need to get the crayons?

"But while President Barack Obama is eager to use illegal tactics such as recess appointments to fill positions in pet agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board, he has left many inspector general positions vacant."

Au contraire min frere, but once again, you are wrong. The positions don't remain vacant because they are being blocked by the Senate, they remain vacant because the President hasn't nominated anyone. It's hard to obstruct when there's no one to obstruct. It makes me wonder why the President didn't attempt to fill these positions instead of those on the NLRB. The fact that he's failed to nominate anyone leads rational people to believe saving taxpayer dollars isn't a priority of the President.

Wonder why that is? I'd ask you for your thoughts but we all know saving taxpayer isn't a priority of yours either as you've confirmed so there's no point in asking you!!!

Good for you grid, you've learned how to use the more comments tab AND you can coy and paste.

So tell me, why don't you agree that the #1 priority of all public servants should be spending taxpayers money wisely and efficiently? And what could be more efficient than eliminating fraud and waste?

In addition to partisan politics you don't mind spending those of us who actually works money,do you? So long as Democrats are doing the spending, right!!!

I'm not sure how that aids you in trying to e plain your lack of outrage over Democratic obstructing President Bush's political appointee but its big of you to admit you don't care about eliminating fraud and waste.

There you go again, denver, accusing of something that you can't prove. I tell you that I didn't do it but you can't take my word for it, yet, you WILL believe all the lies that Odumma and your Socialist buddies tell you to believe. I'm old enough to know BS when you spout it. And skidmark, I mean, gridiron, go back to your coma. You're just like denver, afraid or unable to answer Aaron's questions.

Heres the kicker grid. A few weeks back, you questioned who would value my opinion.

Clearly you do as your fear keeps coming back to a dying thread desparate to get in the last word, albeit a lie, as a means of publicaly saving face.

It's not working.

Now tell another lie and prolong the verbal beat down your suffering.

As Phoebe said in a classic episode of friends....."if we were in prison, you would be my......"

Baaaahaaaaahaaaaaaaaaa

You can twist, turn, lie and obfuscate all you want grid, all you're doing is showing how desperate you really are. The fact that you are forced to resort to 3rd grade name calling only heightens your desparation.

I've addressed this point directly numerous times and you know it, as doea all still reading reading this thread. I strongly support yes/no straight up/down votes of ALL political appointments regardless of party. You don't, so much so that you are now lying to keep from explaining your blatant partisanship.

You're not the first who upon being publically shown as the fraud and a charlatan you who has tried this tactic nor will you be the last.

My response will be the truth. As such, I won't ask why you feign righteous indignation over Republican obstructionism yet you were eyeball deep when the obstructionist was democrats.

We all know the answer. Your continued lying cements that simple truth.

I see no question grid. What I see is you trying to distort the conversation away from the fact that despite numerous opportunities, you have yet to express any of the righteous indignation towards Democrats for President Bush's political appointees yet you feign moral outrage at the obstructionist Republicans for blocking Obama's appointees.

Yet again, I wonder, why the double standards?

I have made it numerous times in many forums both online, in person and in writing to my Senators in 2007 and again in 2013. It is uncalled for. Too bad you don't feel the same way regardless of party. We know that to be fact because you've as much said so numerou times with our feigned outrage.

I'm the "we" grid, the one who is as upset with Republicans blocking Obama's political appointments as I was with Democrats when they routinely blocked President Bush's political appointments.

Do you need help with the rest?

"Someone" removed this comment that I posted earlier. Apparently, "Someone" doesn't want to allow me to have Freedom Of Speech. So I will re-post my comment. "Gridiron, you're not really that dumb, are you? Brickhead Odumma, the community organizer who is living where real Presidents have lived in the past; men such as Lincoln, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Bush... you know, guys born in America who wanted America to thrive and did not try to destroy it the way BO is doing." Okay, let's see if the "tolerant" lefties will leave this up or remove it, again, in the fashion that only a coward can do!

You make absolutely no sense grid. Your taking partial statements from two comments and trying to distort what I am saying. Is there a reason for your dishonest approach in communicating with me?

If you want to engage in debate then cease the disingionous and childish tactics and stop trying to outwit me. You don't have the capabilities.

You made a statement about Presidential appointments. I simply stated that you should have been as outraged when Democrats obstructed President Bush as you are with Republicans obstruction of Obama appointments.

Were you even remotely credible, you would have been. ALL appointments deserve a yes/no vote without political gamesmanship.

As for eliminating fraud and waste, that should be EVERYONE'S #1 priority.

I don't have to read it, I wrote it and I know what I meant. My comment was in response to your comment of "appoint and obstruct" so if you failed to understand my response, that is a failure in your comprehension.

The way I see it you're either not smart enough to comprehend what I stated or you were being disingenuous in trying to twist my words.

So tell us grid, are you unintelligent or dishonest?
