How Many Plates Can the White House Keep Spinning Before One Falls?


What’s described below could end up making Solyndra look like a kid caught stealing a pack of gum from the corner store, and I keep wondering how long things like this can go on before one very large shoe drops:

The four-star Air Force general who oversees Air Force Space Command walked into a highly secured room on Capitol Hill a week ago to give a classified briefing to lawmakers and staff, and dropped a surprise. Pressed by members, Gen. William Shelton said the White House tried to pressure him to change his testimony to make it more favorable to a company tied to a large Democratic donor.

The episode —confirmed by The Daily Beast in interviews with administration officials and the chairman of a congressional oversight committee — is the latest in a string of incidents that have given Republicans sudden fodder for questions about whether the Obama administration is politically interfering in routine government matters that affect donors or fundraisers.

Michelle Malkin has a lot more here.

At least one of those plates is going to shatter on the floor soon, and many Democrats might just let it happen. The incentive to keep the wagons circled and take arrows for Hope & Change™ is in its final days.
