Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Demorat Pork & Lies To Date:

You want a list of Demorat corruption and hypocrisy arranged in ascending monetary order? You got it:

$34,000: the amount of federal taxes that Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner (D) failed to pay during his employment at the International Monetary Fund despite receiving extra compensation and explanatory brochures that described his tax liabilities.

$75,000: the amount of money that the head of the powerful tax-writing committee, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), was forced to report on his taxes after the discovery that he had not reported income from a Costa Rican rental property. His excuses for the failure started with blaming his wife, then his accountant and finally the fact that he didn't speak Spanish.

$93,000: the amount of petty cash each Congressional representative voted to give themselves in January 2009 during the height of an economic meltdown.

$133,900: the amount Fannie Mae "invested" in Chris Dodd (D-CT), head of the powerful Senate Banking Committee, presumably to repel oversight of the GSE prior to its meltdown. Said meltdown helped touch off the current economic crisis. In only a few years time, Fannie also "invested" over $105,000 in then-Senator Barack Obama.

$356,000: the approximate amount of income and deductions that Daschle (D) was forced to report on his amended 2005 and 2007 tax returns after being caught cheating on his taxes. This includes $255,256 for the use of a car service, $83,333 in unreported income, and $14,963 in charitable contributions.

$800,000: the amount of "sweetheart" mortgages Senate Banking Chairman Chris Dodd (D-CT) received from Countrywide Financial, the details for which he has refused to release details despite months of promises to do so. Countrywide was once the nation's largest mortgage lender and linked to Government-Sponsored Entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Their meltdown precipitated the current financial crisis. Just days ago in Pennsylvania, Countrywide was forced to pay $150,000,000 in mortgage assistance following "a state investigation that concluded that Countrywide relaxed its underwriting standards to sell risky loans to consumers who did not understand them and could not afford them."

$1,000,000: the estimated amount of donations by Denise Rich, wife of fugitive Marc Rich, to Democrat interests and the William J. Clinton Foundation in an apparent quid pro quo deal that resulted in a pardon for Mr. Rich. The pardon was reviewed and blessed by Obama Attorney General and then Deputy AG Eric Holder, despite numerous requests by government officials to turn it down.

$12,000,000: the amount of TARP money provided to community bank OneUnited despite the fact that it did not qualify for funds, and was "under attack from its regulators for allegations of poor lending practices and executive-pay abuses." It turns out that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), a key contributor to the Fannie Mae meltdown, just happens to be married to one of the bank's ex-directors.

$23,500,000: The upper range of net worth Rep. Allan Mollohan (D-WV) accumulated in four years time according to The Washington Post through earmarks of "tens of millions of dollars to groups associated with his own business partners."

$2,000,000,000: ($2 billion) the approximate amount of money that House Appropriations Chairman David Obey (D-WI) is earmarking related to his son's lobbying efforts. Craig Obey is "a top lobbyist for the nonprofit group" that would receive a roughly $2 billion component of the "Stimulus" package.

$4,190,000,000: ($4.19 billion) the amount of money in the so-called "Stimulus" package devoted to fraudulent voter registration ACORN group under the auspices of "Community Stabilization Activities". ACORN is currently the subject of a RICO suit in Ohio.

$1,646,000,000,000 ($1.646 trillion): the approximate amount of annual United States exports endangered by the "Stimulus" package, which provides a "Buy American" stricture. According to international trade experts, a "US-EU trade war looms", which could result in a worldwide economic depression reminiscent of that touched off by the protectionist Smoot-Hawley Act.

Corruption, corruption, more corruption and money -- from the Congress that Nancy Pelosi decreed to be the most ethical in the history of the United States.

But more importantly, where's the public outrage? Where's the press coverage and the screaming above-the-fold headlines? Why is it that no one cares and the Demorats continue to hover sweetly above the law?


Oh, that's right: because the Fourth Estate is IN THE BAG for a light-skinned, facially-subdued "black," Barack Hussein Obama, and they CANNOT admit they were even remotely wrong. Oh well -- "in for a penny, in for a pound."

Step by step.

What is the amount of money when a person goes from being a Whore to a "CallGirl" or "Escort"? And, At a certain point do they just go back to being a Whore?
Just a Thought.......

Hey I appreciate your showing the ties and hypocrisy endemic in his Cabinet. You could literally have done the same for just about all the Presidents in the last century, with a few exceptions. Our political structure is in need of revamping.
The will of the people has been usurped by our elected reps who don't represent our points of view at all!

You've certainly done your homework, BZ. Good job. There's a graph here showing the Bush deficit versus the Obama deficit that makes it easy for those who may be mathematically impaired to figure out. We've had wasteful spending by nearly every President, just as Mahndisa says, but compaired to Obama, that's been pocket change! When he said "change you can believe in" he meant that's all we're going to have left.

As for the Fourth Estate, at least we know why MSNBC is in the bag for Obama. MSNBC is owned by GE, and GE "said Wednesday the government will insure up to $139 billion of debt issued by its financing arm, GE Capital Corp., under a new program."

Question: If GE doesn't get the money will MSNBC turn on Obama? Just wondering.

I am really fuming.. The latest, if you haven't already heard or wrote about, is that Obama is going to release pictures of tortured Detanees!!! The CIA is reeling about it, especially the ones who are on the front lines. They are afraid now to do their job because of the fact that they might be prosecuted and their covers blown! Even though Obama says they won't they are scared now.

UNBELIEVABLE! He is putting our lives in extreme danger now. This will almost ensure an attack.

Sorry, my comment was off the subject, but I think even though the Demorats are liars and thieves they are also tearing up our strong foundation right before our very eyes with these ridiculous ideas to go after Bush.

When did outing CIA Agents become such a concern of yours?

Just the last 3 months?

I think the outing of any CIA Agent is wrong and the one doing the outing should be shot for treason and that includes anyone, including Cheney, Libby or Obama.

My feelings or decisions are not based on who President

To tell you the truth, I really dodn't give a shit.

CB: ah yes, the precise cutting point between whore and politician -- just where is it? I submit it's quite some distance away. You have to be talking thousands or millions of dollars.

MSR: Pretty much true. But up to this point the press wasn't completely in LOVE with the president and weren't so completely UNinterested in what he's really doing.

Gayle: excellent point about GE!

Shop: I'd suspect it's what she wants them to be WHEN she wants them to be conVEnient.

Rivka: and there's more. Once you set that precedent then you've set off for prosecutions of every subsequent administration and their minions when philosophies happen NOT to be congruent.

Ranando: turns out, I believe, that Valerie Plame was outed by both Richard Armitage of the State Department and also Joe Wilson. Libby burned behind lying in testimony, not because he or Cheney had revealed the identity of a CIA employee.

How true. Boy, are some Democrats in real trouble! LOL! They were at those CIA meetings where they were briefed on enhanced interrogations and never raised an eyebrow. I'm sure you all know Pelosi lied about that. Now they want to prosecute President Bush? Methinks their credibility is damaged beyond repair. I'll leave their souls up to God.

Ethics + any politician=laughable.
Republican party + Democratic Party=Trillion dollar debt.

Where's the public outrage? Um, how about that Milli Vanilli movement?

Or how about the constant outrage that's been going on?

Look how much good it's done?

Benevolent Tyranny is the reason we have to make sure sure the second amendment continues to ensure an armed population. The founding fathers meant to keep us from a tyrannical government.
