    Moving the goalposts I see, your arguments have been destroyed. We were talking about the Black Alumni Assoc.

    Still spinning conspiracy nonsense? Let's look at what all has to be true for this to have any possible credence:


    1. They had to know each other out of the 1000ish people in the class
    2. They had to be friends
    3. They had to stay in contact with each other
    4. They had to continue to be friends
    5. When the contract came up, Michelle had to be aware of it
    6. She had to convince her husband that based on that friendship he should award them the contract.


    All of that has to be true, and there is a total of zero evidence any of it is. This is birther level bull****.

    The source of the chart came from this WaPo article....

    ".... As Kaitlin Devine at the Sunlight Foundation has noted, government spending is bundled into large contracts that last for years, making it difficult to pinpoint exactly what is spent for what project. For instance, CGI Federal, generally regarded as the main contractor for healthcare.gov, has one such contract that was signed three years before the Affordable Care Act was signed into law — and lasts until 2017.

    Devine methodically searched through all of the task orders for the CGI Federal contract, highlighted in blue what she guessed was related to the health-care Web site — and came up with a figure of just $70 million. (Still, we should note, a news release issued by CGI in 2011 touted a contract of $93 million over two years.) [See update below]

    Of course, a Web site is just the Internet portal. There’s also the entire backbone of the exchanges, such as the data hub created by Optum/Quality Software Services Inc., a unit of UnitedHealth Group. In a June report, the Government Accountability Office said that as of March 31, $55 million had been obligated to QSSI for the data hub....read....

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...rive_web#gid=0

    Whoa, looky there, it appears the CGI didn't create the data hub....Optum/Quality Software Services Inc., a unit of United Health Group, did. So where's your cronyism now, eh?
    CGI has been in the news, not Optum.

    Speaking of Sunlight, sounds like a real upstanding outfit....run by upstanding people.

    Well, I'd think it would take a lot more evidence than the fact that Michelle Obama may or may not have known someone in school to prove wrong doing. Even if she did, does this mean it's necessarily a conflict of interest to end up doing business with someone you (or your spouse) went to school with?

    Re: Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is executive at company that built Obamacare

    Only 15% of the 1985 Princeton graduating class were black students and you still think Obama and Toni Townes-Whitley didn't know each other?

    I have a drawbridge to to sell you in west Texas; cheap.

    The following statements are on the 1985 Princeton alumni website. Look at #4. Maybe this is where they got the idea for Obamacare and how to manage the government.

    Top 5 Reasons to Pay Your Dues
    1. It is the right thing to do
    2. It pays for your PAW subscription
    3. It helps pay for all non-reunions class activities
    4. If you don't, you are asking other classmates to subsidize you
    5. You want to join the honor roll!

    Did you know that Stephen Greenblatt was a classmate of George Bush? Clearly, Bush must have helped him get his Pulitzer. Lars Onsager was a classmate too, so now we know how he got his Nobel prize. David Kennedy, another Pulitzer Bush got for some one, another classmate. Richard Brodhead, president of Duke University, Bush classmate. Surely he must have gotten Bush's help to get such a prestigious job. And several other rather high profile people.
    Thank God you're here to provide balance.
    Please explain to everyone why out of more than a dozen firms that are listed as qualified for Government work (yes, that's funny in and of itself) the Obama's chose the CGI bid without even reviewing any others ...
    and then after getting the contract, CGI's President became a campaign donor to USA's President.
    I know, I know, you're gonna say that's done all the time in politics.
    But imagine how much money, how many votes, and how much campaign groundwork is gonna come back to the Democrat Party at election time given all the contracts and Community Organizations tapped for the Obamacare rollout ... not to mention all the new dependents/voters targeted by ACA ... no, it's unprecedented.
    So ... let's have the balance.

    Well well well, look who's listed in the same graduating class. Does anyone remember what the Left said about Cheney and Halliburton?
    I see you appear to believe that correlation = causation. You might want to check that with your local Logics professor.

    Yes, and you're trying to disassociate the two women by ignoring their association in the black alumni group.
