Dealergate: Federal Bankruptcy Law and Profits be damned, Obama friends stay open, Republican Contributors Closed
They are running this country like Mayor Daley runs Chicago. Only on a more massively corrupt scale.
Where is the #@$%!*%#! outrage??? This President is trampling on the Constitution and our laws. I find myself agreeing with Mark Levin that Barack Obama is the closest thing to a dictator (or at least a dictator wannabe) that America has ever had.
Meanwhile, the media, led by General Electric-owned NBC/MSNBC, continues to march to Obama's beat, and (other than Fox) has pretty much ignored or else laughed at every single violation of American law to date, as evidenced by this bit via Michelle Malkin:
As I’ve stated from the beginning, there is still much to be researched on this issue. Given Obama’s Chicago gangland propensities, anything corrupt is possible.
Some professional journalists, however, have shown obstinate unwilligness to get to the bottom of the decision-making process.
The Washington Post’s business columnist Steven Pearlstein was asked about the story yesterday in an online Q&A. He scoffed:
Boonsboro, Md.: A bit off the topic, but have you or anyone at the Post investigated this? Chrysler dealers shut down in Obama bankruptcy are mostly Republican? It seems a crosscheck of dealerships to be closed versus donations shows almost all the dealers to be closed donated to Republicans. http://hotair.com/
Steven Pearlstein: Oh, please. What percent of all auto dealers are Republican? I bet its (sic) pretty high.
Well, why don’t you use all your professional journalism training and find out the answer, Mr. Pearlstein? And why don’t you look at the flip side of the question — as “amateur” bloggers have been doing — and investigate the circumstances of the protected dealers?
