GSA circus investigation in front of a GOP congress Issues Beyond Palo Alto, posted by Ed, a resident of the Fairmeadow neighborhood, on Apr 16, 2012 at 1:32 pm
The GOP circus "investigation" is a joke. This is an attemtp to go after a very good and honest President Obama. President Obama understands that GSA has a private element to it, including its semi-private pool of money, from private and government investors. Holding hearings about so-called "public" money is a naked attempt to attack our President. If GSA was a Wall Street firm, this would not even be an issue. The GSA party frivolities were much more interesting than the uptight Wall Street guys and their bimbos. It was an OPM issue, from the start, and it did NOT cost U.S. taxpayers a dime! These parties are a morale booster for the very hard working employees at GSA.
The GSA is a very smart and effient operation. Leave it alone!

The GSA does so much good work. It protects unions rights in its negotiations. It makes good deals for the federal government. It promotes federal government jobs. It is always under attack from the GOP. This GOP circus is an attempt to smear President Obama.
The GSA plays hardball with the private sector. If the GSA wants to throw a party, let them.

You are mixing things up here. There was no GSA scandal, it was just a party for some hard working people. It distresses me that House Democrats are going along with this GOP charade. We should not be berudging federal workers for working hard, and partying hard.
Your issue is about the Secret Service prostitute scandal. The only reason it is a scandal is that it compromises our President's security. If it was the GSA, there is no problem, except for the moralists. However, protection of President Obama, or any president, is a very serious issue.
