It must be the 70s because every day another drip of criminality comes out of the Obama administration and the Democrats. I know people who say that Obama is Carter, but in reality he is more a hybrid of Carter/Nixon. Carter had his inane beliefs regarding socialist policies, and Nixon had his paranoid fears worrying about what people thought about him, ala #AttackWatch. The mood of the Country is definitely malaise and anger, just as it was in the 70s, and just like the last year of that decade, 2013 will bring a new dawning of America as the shining city on the hill. It is the Chicago thug politics of this White House with Solyndra and LightSquared and lets throw another buddy on top of the payoff list for Barack Hussein Obama WilmerHale Who Will Be Getting 214 Million Of Our Tax Payer Dollars
At the center of some of the various scandals swirling around the Obama Administration is a common thread that links them all–political favors are delivered to Obama supporters with taxpayers’ money. The latest scandal involving the bailout of the Wilmer Hale Law Firm in Boston depicts more of the ‘crony capitalism’ that characterizes the manner in which the Administration does business.
Wilmer Hale is set to receive $214 million dollars from the taxpayers to cover its losses stemming from a case in which the law firm failed to comply with the statute of limitations. The error meant that Wilmer Hale lost the case and was liable for the 214 million. Large law firms carry malpractice insurance, and thus, the money would actually come from the company that insures Wilmer Hale against ‘errors and omissions.’
But the Obama Administration, working in tandem with Democrats who control the U.S. Senate and a few liberal, establishment Republicans in the House, passed an amendment to a bill concerning U.S. Patents that would reimburse Wilmer Hale and its insurer for their losses.
However, the story goes much deeper than that.
In 2009 Obama appointed David Ogden to work under Eric Holder at the Department of Justice as Deputy Attorney-General. Prior to his appointment, Ogden worked as an attorney at Wilmer Hale in Boston.
And after being at the DOJ for less than a year, Ogden decided to resign from his post and return to Wilmer Hale as co-chair of the firm’s government and regulatory litigation group.
It must be noted that some liberal Republicans voted for this payoff to the law firm as well. We need to clean out the corruption from both parties. This kind of cronyism is unacceptable when the Country is broke – that 214M could feed all of those children who are supposedly living in poverty that the media continues to berate us about. The billions upon billions of dollars that this Administration has forked over to bundlers to feed his campaign, could help destroy poverty across the world. Liberals are liars when they say they want to help the poor and downtrodden, because if they did, this kind of criminality would never occur on their watch.
