    Lerxst, I noticed you voted "yes" in the poll. Would you care to indulge me and explain why Obama was justified in dismissing Walpin?

    Justified? Isn't Barack Obama the President of the United States?

    Is there anything else you'd like to know before attempting a reasoned and relevant answer?

    Whether the firing was justified or not, it was carried out in violation of ethics rules that President Obama cosponsored as Senator from Illinois. Neither the obligatory notice nor the obligatory justification were offered at the time of the firing, and the justification-- when it was finally produced-- was incredibly vague and flimsy.

    I have no reason to believe Inspector Walpin's story, and if it is untrue, he would be far from the first ousted federal employee to cry conspiracy in order to cover his own incompetence.

    On the other hand, I have several reasons to disbelieve the President's story, not the least of which is the timing.

    We simply do not have the facts to draw a conclusion either way. It appears that Walprin overstepped his bounds (according to the local USAO). Obama has also failed to follow through on providing a reason for the firing.

    I don't know how anyone can reach a conclusion given the dearth of information....unless they are already convinced that Obama is a bad guy.

    Like I said, what facts would help you decide whether or not Obama was justified?
