    Exclamation MR Obama I'll See YOU in Court

    The government watchdog President Obama fired last month for allegedly being "confused" and "disoriented" filed a lawsuit Friday to reclaim his job, the Washington Times reported.
    Report: Fired Inspector General Sues Obama to Get Job Back - Political News - FOXNews.com
    Gerald Walpin, who was the inspector general for the Corporation for National and Community Service until President Obama removed him, argues in the lawsuit that the firing was politically motivated and broke a 2008 law governing how watchdogs can be dismissed, the newspaper said.

    Obama hastily removed Walpin after a board meeting in May in which, the White House says, he was "unduly disruptive," and exhibited a "lack of candor" in providing information to decision makers.

    Walpin has emphatically disputed the charge, calling it baseless. Walpin believes his firing was a result of bad blood between him and the board over his investigation of Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, an Obama supporter, for alleged misuse of federal funds.

    Walpin said in his lawsuit, filed in federal district court in Washington, D.C., that the administration violated a 2008 law meant to protect government watchdogs by not interviewing him or any of his staff before canning him.

    The law requires that Congress be notified 30 days before an inspector general is dismissed and Walpin argues that the administration has yet to meet the requirements for who should be notified and what reasons must be given.

    Unhappy Obama

    It seems that Obama cares little for such piddiling things as the law. He has violated so far several dozen laws.

    Like other dictators through out history he thinks he is above the law.

    All presidents have done things like this. Obama isn't the first, and he won't be the last. Remember when both President Clinton and President Bush fired all those U.S. attorneys? What about those?

    That was their prerogative to fire the US Attorneys. It's within the realm of their authority. Big difference.

    Whether it is or isn't, all of them fire people for political reasons. Obama is no worse than Bush or Clinton for doing it.

  8. You don't see a difference between the legal and illegal firing of people? There is a reason watchdog positions have rules regarding political firings.

    As bad as others may have been the Obamanation is hands down the worst. He has no regard for the constitution what so ever.

    Obama signed the legislation that required an explanation to Congress and a 30 day waiting period before ANY Inspector General could be fired. We know he doesn't play by the rules, but c'mon he can't even play by his own? We voted by the ballot box (invalidated by ACORN), we have been voting by the soap box, there is but one box left to vote from.......
