California lib Rep. Henry Waxman was the head of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform when a $50 billion bailout was approved for General Motors, at which point the government’s majority stake in the company had everybody referring to it as “Government Motors.”
In other words, the federal government, including Waxman, were at least partly responsible for the company. This week, Waxman has been grilling the CEO of GM over vehicle recalls and other problems.
The rather eccentric Fox News Detroit reporter Charlie LeDuff caught up with Waxman and asked why he doesn’t shoulder any of the blame. Waxman played a game of “dodge those questions” and wanted to just turn nostrils and run like the wind:
Can that reporter be cloned to make hundreds of him to serve as the entire Washington Press Corps? It would be some serious kind of fun.

The lack of lightning strikes when Crazy Nancy says things like this is seriously starting to challenge my faith in a benevolent God:
Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi emerged into the sunlight April 1 to applaud a rush of sign-ups for Obamacare, and immediately described it as the long-sought goal of Gen. George Washington and the nation’s Founding Fathers in 1787.
“It is really so heart warming for those of us who worked so hard [to make sure] many more people in our country would have access to healthcare,” she told reporters at the stakeout position just outside the West Wing portico.
“There are those critics, bumps in the road, but they’ve only been turbulence. They have not been an obstacle to the American people having healthier life that our that our founders wanted for them,” she said.
Those founders wanted “life — a healthier life — liberty and the freedom to pursue their happiness, not [be] job-locked, but having benefits that having health-care policies that are portable, they could be self-employed, be a photographer — they could start their own business, they could change jobs, they could reach their aspirations,” she declared.
The “freedom to not be job locked” appears in the Constitution?
Nancy Pelosi is crazier than a schizophrenic rat in a meth lab shithouse.
What moisturizer does he use? It’s called “Gold Bond Botox,” Rachael, and usually the doctor sticks the needle in too far and hits frontal lobe:
Biden appeared on Rachael Ray’s show to pitch Obamacare and describe how the Obama administration has roasted the middle class.
