    I don't see that it would be different than the admin we have now, really. But this whole blame game is old ... really old ... older than Mount Rainier.

    Can't say I disagree, but no longer see an alternative. I avoid the nonsense issues, like Michelle's shoes and such. However, if there is to be any holding back a steamroller, then the issues that were used by the 'other side' need to be used against them. In this case, like they destroy all 'conservatives' when issues regarding 'family values' come into play. "We're all community organizers now!"

    So he built the firm and sold his interest and is being payed in installments rather than a lump sum. Nothing radical.

    LOL! But his son is holding and no reason to think there isn't an abuse of position. Remember, it's the 'appearance of impropriety....'

    His son is holding what?


    Axelrod still has to keep the confidence of any clients who passed through there, confidential. His son can't just arbitrarily feed him info because he isn't "of counsel". He resigned. Just like Obama couldn't talk about Rezco because he represented him. Although much was said about that by people that were morons.

    Halliburton is quite another matter. Cheney was in gov't then in Halliburton, then in gov't and then still tied to Halliburton based on some bogus dead office in the Caymans. Then Halliburton takes the pension fund of their employees to pay Cheney his golden parachute of 20M and then Cheney turns around and makes Halliburton KP for the armed forces, along with CB's, and quartermaster general as well as handling the oil contracts and putting out fires because only Halliburton can do that big stuff yanno.........then they get bazillions more in no bid skillion dollar contracts to rebuild and electrocute our troops and provide them with stagnant water and on and on and on......

    Axelrod worked for Obama in the private sector and then he resigned, he sold his business. Cheney is a revolving door nightmare.

    And any of what you wrote does not compare with Axelrod how? Did Cheney's relative pick up where he left off? :cuckoo:

    Insiders taking care of Insiders and all on the people's dime.

    Nothing new to this...except now the right wingers suddenly understand why it's bad.

    Soemthing they categorically denied was a problem when Bush II's team of insiders did the same damned thing.

    sigh!

    Will you partisans never get it?
