    CIA Nominee Panetta Received $700,000 in Fees

    CIA Nominee Panetta Received $700,000 in Fees

    CIA Nominee Panetta Received $700,000 in Fees - First 100 Days of Presidency - Politics FOXNews.com

    WASHINGTON -- The White House's nominee for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Leon Panetta, has earned more than $700,000 in speaking and consulting fees since the beginning of 2008, with some of the payments coming from troubled financial firms and from a firm that invests in contractors for federal national security agencies, according to financial disclosures released Wednesday and reviewed by the Wall Street Journal.



    lobbyests, tax cheats, and washington insiders. The Mantra of change is dead. In less than a month Obama has shown he is no different than any other politician and his whole campaign on "change" was a farce. Instead we have seen incompetence, businessas usual, and naivitey.......

    From the article:

    The former White House chief of staff's disclosure form also shows the delicate balance President Barack Obama is trying to strike -- trying to curb the influence of lobbyists in his administration, while relying on long-time Washington veterans who often help clients navigate the halls of power. Panetta's forms show that he performed government affairs consulting last year and also sat on the board of a public affairs firm that lobbies Congress, though Panetta doesn't violate Obama's ban on hiring registered lobbyists.

    Panetta earned the fees giving speeches, not working as an advocate. How would this taint his job at CIA?

    Even though I am new here, it is abundantly clear that you will attack without justification if none is available. Panetta's income last year came from giving speeches. Big deal. To spin that minor detail into a conviction of the Obama administration is a feat of absurdity, and a demonstration of chronic hypocrisy.

    The mantra of money whore is alive . My short lived hope of what "change" was going to be like was dashed ,day 2, when Barry sent hundreds of millions of American tax payer dollars to "Planned Parenthood International" as an economic stimulus. Politics as usual ?...No its Money Whoreing as usual
