Part of being a responsible leader would mean Obama needs to accept responsibility for it. Why is that so hard for you?
    Isn't firing the director and many others who were involved, and saying that it's totally unacceptable, accepting fault? Should he have left it at that? Would that have been the end of it? Yeahright. » Darrell Issa Calls Hearing On GSA Las Vegas Spree
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    My problem is not with the fact that it happened. Or the fact that people were fired. Personally I think charges should be pressed against those involved but any action is something. My problem with Obama on this is he, like he does with everything negative, is he deflected the blame. He does not seem capable of accepting responsibility for anything.

    With the partisanship in this country? That is crazy talk. Just look at the people who participate in this board.

    So the cost of the event increased almost 700% under Bush, and less than 30% under Obama. What's wrong with pionting that out?
    Because the left considered Bush secretive in his administration, and Obama was going to change all that and improve confidence with the American public. He didn't.

    It's 2012 my friend.
    No freakin' wonder you are on ignore...you actually equate the "Obama Administration"...with the man?

    Thank you for accidentally expressing the very ignorance I posted about, priceless.

    "I sometimes wonder if some people think Obama has superpowers and is somehow able to watch everything that happens in Government, control gas prices, stop the worldwide economic problems, Invent some new energy source, and tell the bad guys to stop bein' bad."

    Amazing

    If am on ignore, why do you keep running your mouth at me, telling me that you have me on ignore? it's an embarrassing display for you. You should reconsider your silly line of attacks.


    Obama knew about this in 2010, he's blaming bush, he needs to move on, should I make it any simpler for you, kid?



    Obama doesn't really affect gas prices, but as CiC, he does have say, and responsibility to oversea a FEDGOV agency like this, I mean, he thinks his predecessor did, so why do you disagree and think he doesn't?.... MIRITE?

    Ok...I admit you are entertaining. Though eventually tiresome.

    "OBAMA" likely had much more critical things to be informed about in 2010, and to actually think he was briefed on the conference is tantamout to stupidity...thus you end up on Ignore, as I find stupid people boring after the initial giggle.

    So your intellectual contribution can be summed up thusly "yer a stupid head, I am going to pretend to put you back on ignore so I can respond again how I have you on ignore and call you a stupid head".....


    I'd be happy to compare intellectual prowess and educational background with you anytime, chief. Have a wonderful day.




    oh, and to your silly retort, as POTUS, I would fire my campaign manager, and my GAO chief if I wasn't made aware of this very embarrassing situation. Or do you think POTUS shouldn't give a **** about fraud waste and abuse? My guess, is he should only care when he's not Obama....

    I think you are confused as to the function and the purpose of the ignore feature.
