The 'new politics' of scandal and cronyism

Heritage's Morning Bell piece focusing on the sordid scandals of the Obama Administration points to the astronomical level of corruption that you might not know about "if you solely paid attention to the mainstream media." However, we've paid attention to these since the beginning and have continued to.

...while President Barack Obama attempts to sell the country on hundreds of billions in new stimulus spending and $1.5 trillion in new taxes, his Administration is smack in the middle of several growing scandals: the Operation Fast and Furious gun-running debacle and the crony capitalism wrongdoing involving Solyndra and LightSquared.

Besides covering the basis and latest happenings of these scandals, the latest of which, LightSquared, involves two U.S. officials (including a four-star Air Force general) who allege the White House asked them to commit perjury to rush through testing for the politically-connected company, we're also informed of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa's latest investigative directions.

A cross-border gun-running scandal, deaths in the United States and Mexico, staff removals and resignations, secret audio recordings, complaints from foreign officials, hundreds of millions of dollars in loans, bankruptcy, an FBI raid, campaign donors, and allegations of inappropriate White House influence in congressional testimony. There are serious questions coming out of Washington. It’s time the media start demanding answers.

Well past time to not only start demanding answers, but to stop shielding this administration.

Oh, and let us not forget about the Gibson raids while Obama seeks to pass his phony jobs bill!
