FINALLY-NOT TOO BIG TO FAIL

Seems Tom D. has withdrawn his name from nomination. It is a shame that his long career in politics had to come to an end this way. It is also a shame that until there was PUBLIC outrage to this "Elitist" club member in the US Senate that he withdrew-. Even the new York Times got on board. Perhaps a BIT of the new "ethical standards" in the new Presidency can now be restored a bit anyway- Linda

Well, Linda, this one was just too big to try to slip by.

It remains to be seen whether this admin can live up to its promises on ethics.

They're slippin' and slidin' already.

I have been waiting on someone to start the thread titled :Add a waffle! I'll start it.

1. There is no room for lobbyists in this White House. (lmao)

Yes, now it seems that Hilda Solis(probably misspelled) was a lobbyist for card check and she didn't report it. She has now and so it will most likely be overlooked and she too will slide through. Sigh.... Linda

Her nomination is on hold She's a Congresswoman.

I think you can kiss goodbye the idea of no lobbyists in this admin, and it was evident as soon as he declined public financing in July. I doubt the press, well except for the papers TSK reads (), will give him a pass on this.

Obama raked in huge contributions and therefore has huge political debts to pay.

Yes, on learning more it seems her confirmation was put on hold because she REFUSED to answer questions asked by the committee as to her connection with some labor organization. Linda
