    Point is you're trying to change the discussion.

    The thread is about the current admin's GSA over expenditures on the current taxpayers dime, in the current fiscal year, in the current economy, yes? I know you want to "look back", but try to stay current, okay?

    Is this 2010?

    Point is that it was a shameful abuse that went on for awhile and now it's being dealt with. In dollar terms it doesn't even rise to the level of a rounding error in the budget picture. You obviously want to turn it into yet another anti-Obama rant.

    Hey I said "da*n that George W. Bush, didn't I? I don't know how he did it, must be majic, but someway he was ultimately responsible for the bonus given to these GSA folks in 2012.

    Back to reality. What does 2010 have to do with the bonus given to these people? I mean other than the obviouse deflection.

    I realize you really, really, want to blame everyone in the past admin, but that is quite a s-t-r-e-a-c-h, don't you think?

    Ah, okay, I missed the bit about the $9,000 bonus.

    It's only being dealt with because it was exposed. When it was exposed, the president doubled down on his "blame bush for everything", nonsense.

    Someday, it will be his fault for something. yes or no?

    What you missed is this fiasco happened under Obama's watch.

    But you can go all the way back to George Washington Adminstration and this mess will still belong to the Obama Admin.

    When dealing with Adam you have to realize he is not capable of actually discussing a topic. He thinks as long as he can point to anyone in history who has ever done anything wrong then it automatically justifies anything that any democrat does. They can do no wrong no matter what as long as someone in history has ever done anything wrong.

    What you missed is that it happened under both Obama and Bush's watch, but of course one isn't permitted to point that out.

    But once again -- it was a **** up, it's being dealth with. It should have been dealt with sooner.
