Obama Sure Knows How To Pick Winners

FBI Arrests Two After Raiding Office of Obama's Pick for Information Officer


FBI agents have made two arrests after raiding the D.C. office of the man tapped to be President Obama's chief information officer, sources told FOX News.
The agents on Thursday morning raided the office of Vivek Kundra, who was leaving his post as the D.C. chief technology officer to join the administration. The investigation is related to allegations of corruption, one source said, but is not targeting Kundra.
FBI agents arrested a District of Columbia government worker, Yusuf Acar, as well as Sushil Bansal, who works for a company called Advanced Integrated Technologies Corp, sources said. Both are expected in court later Thursday.
FBI spokeswoman Lindsay Gotwin would not describe the nature of the probe.
"It's an ongoing law enforcement investigation," she said.
In a March 5 White House press release, the administration said it chose Kundra to be the federal chief information officer because of his "depth of experience in the technology arena and a commitment to lowering the cost of government operations to this position."
The chief information officer is responsible for overseeing federal technology spending.
FOX News' Mike Levine and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Re: Obama Sure Knows How To Pick Winners

The guy picked to join the administration is not being targeted in the investigation. It says so right there in your post. So your thread title doesn't make sense in this case, although there is no doubt a lot of his appointees have been pretty bad.

I was sitting at my dest on hold while reading the article and some how missed that in the article and noticed it after I posted the article. Even though he is not involved it seems eveyone he picks have something happen to them shortly after.

Re: Obama Sure Knows How To Pick Winners

Here's the story that sends me over the edge:

CNSNews.com - Justice Dept. Investigates Arizona Sheriff for Enforcing Immigration Law

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has launched an investigation of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in Arizona following requests by congressional Democrats and allegations by liberal activists that the department has violated the civil rights of illegal aliens.

Reps. John Conyers (D-Mich.), Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), and Robert Scott (D-Va.) requested the investigation, and activists groups such as National Day Laborer Organizer Network and ACORN launched petition drives and rallies in support of the probe.

The investigation focuses on Sheriff Joe Arpaio and dozens of officers under his command who were trained through the Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Agreements of Cooperation in Communities to Enhance Safety and Security (ACCESS), which partners federal and local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws. (The Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement division is known popularly as ICE.)


Now, I know Arpaio is a self promoter, but this is bullshit. The message is clear to local jurisdictions: if you don't want the justice department to hassle you, don't enforce the immigration laws. Don't even send your people for ICE training because we're investigating that as well. And why can four dopey congresspeople, all from states other than Arizona, get a local Sherriff investigated just by picking up the phone? Isn't that the sort of thing the Liberals were always accusing Karl Rove of? And, what the **** does Bobby Scott know about Maricopa County, Arizona?

Under the Obama Administaration you're free to break the law as long as you belong to an ethnic minority that consistently votes Democratic. The Justice Department is on the case. We should not be surprised, though, as this is the logical outcome of the corrupt Chicago mentality that is now running the executive branch. They take care of their friends, they screw their enemies (the domestic ones at least), and they know which is which.

Why should a break be given? I don't really understand that comment. No political appointees get to just avoid scrutiny or news headlines, especially not in DC where every thing is NEWS.

We should not comment on anything Obama does because he is right on every thing and has become our new King. Its funny how he keeps signing all these Executive Orders and no one cares now that its the King is in office. Why should you question that he has added more dept to the nation in his short time in office then any other president. This man is slowly adding more power everyday to the goverment so he gains more and more power but please don't question that.

If you're going to slam the guy let's at least make sure it's a valid story.

Re: Obama Sure Knows How To Pick Winners

F....political threads. If McCain had won, this thread would be the exact same thing with McCain in the thread title and dmek and saden leading the charge. Obama won so firstdown and 70chip (and I imagine Buster will join soon) are "running things" now

Nothing ever comes out of these stupid threads, unless someone like FRPLG chimes in, otherwise it's just "hey I'm a liberal, and all conservatives suck" or "hey I'm a conservative, and all liberals blow"

As oppossed to all the rest of the threads that have deep implications for the very Universe we inhabit. I thought your threads about the OctoMom and the Rogue Tire were especially impactful. I know I'll never be the same.
