White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced that White House legal counsel has concluded no White House staff engaged in any “misconduct” in Cartagena.

“The decision to conduct a review here, internally, was simply done out of due diligence,” Carney said. “There is no indication of any misconduct by any member of the White House advance team or staff.”

He added that “there have been no specific, credible allegations of misconduct by anyone on the White House advance team or White House staff.”

Carney refused to give any details on the investigation, such as whether the investigation included checking hotel records in Colombia or interviewing the White House advance team that went to Cartagena.

Obama campaign rolls out Square mobile fundraising platform
The Obama reelection campaign is providing headquarters staff, field organizers and volunteers the ability to take campaign donations with their mobile phones.

Campaign personnel are being issued Square mobile credit card readers, allowing them to process donations with their iPhone or Android phones, a campaign official tells POLITICO. The rollout will happen nationwide, and involve staff at all levels.

The technology is a boon for canvassers and other field staff — potentially saving the campaign hundreds of hours of time processing donations, and giving field staff enormous flexibility. Moreover, it’s another good example of the power of mobile technology to streamline and automate otherwise mundane — but nevertheless important — campaign tasks.

Square has been used by a handful of local political campaigns, but the Obama campaign’s adoption is the first national political adoption of the technology.

Taxpayers Rank Behind Solyndra Investors Under Obama’s Refinancing Deal

By William McQuillen – Sep 3, 2011 1:09 PM E

"...then we borrow $385 large from the people..."

The Obama administration let $385 million in taxpayer support for Solyndra Inc. take a back seat to funds from new investors in an unsuccessful effort to keep the solar-panel manufacturer operating.

The Energy Department decided the January refinancing represented the “highest probable net benefit” for the government, according to a government document obtained by Bloomberg News. Investors provided the company $75 million that became senior debt, ahead of all but $150 million of the federal government’s stake.

Solyndra said on Aug. 31 that it will file for bankruptcy reorganization next week in Wilmington,Delaware. The administration’s agreement to subordinate the government aid to new investment may add fuel to criticism by Republicans who have said President Barack Obama spent too much money pushing a favored company in the name of green energy.

the government had already advanced $460 million in loan guarantees and decided to continue investing in an effort to fend off threatened bankruptcy.

Here we go kiddies, it’s Obama at his campaigny-best!

Perhaps the president’s Republican critics think they are scoring a major hit when they tag Obama’s speech to the joint session of Congress as a “campaign speech”. But the White House has the consolation that the speech was just that: a rousing, bold, base-pleasing, Republican-baiting collection of mostly pleasant-sounding policy proposals that he is under little pressure to actually enact. In front of a different audience, it would have ended with cheering and chants of “Four more years!”

Of course, that different audience might be hard to find. Americans are hurting – and blaming Obama for their pain. The idea that Obama’s strongly-worded speech, full of commands and implicit challenges, would be largely just another example of politicians talking past each other would surely be galling to them – if it weren’t so common. One is tempted to surmise that the Obama administration is even counting onRepublicans‘ refusal to engage in the ideas the president outlined.

Are we to believe that it has taken 34 months for Mr. Obama to realize that we have an employment/tax/economy issue? After all, there are only 14 months until the election…

Oh yea, “Pass this Bill!”

Meanwhile… on the everybody got a sex tape front… Kim “the Original Fame Whore” Kardashian is looking to clean up her act, maybe?

from TMZ:a mystery buyer has approached Vivid Entertainment (which owns the rights to the tape) in an effort to buy it and remove it completely from the market.

But now Pornhub.com, which bills itself as the largest adult website on the planet, wants in on the action. In a letter to Vivid head man Steven Hirsch, the site says they are willing to offer $5 million for the tape … considerably less than the $30 million Hirsch is asking for.

The site — which is 100% free — says they “respectfully disagree” with Hirsch’s value ofthe tape, stating they feel the DVD market is “dying” and online is where it’s at.

I wonder what kinda scratch Ray J is looking for? Didn’t anyone tell him that the dick in the video never gets paid?

Warren wants to pay more taxes…

Posted: September 6, 2011 in Jerk-offs

Warren Buffett, also known as that old dude from the movie “UP”, demanded that the rich pay more in taxes, sure, why not, demand all you want… But Berkshire Hathaway hasn’t been paying their back taxes!

This one’s truly, uh … rich: Billionaire Warren Buffett says folks like him should have to pay more taxes — but it turns out his firm, Berkshire Hathaway, hasn’t paid what it’s already owed for years.

That’s right: As Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson notes, the company openly admits that it owes back taxes since as long ago as 2002.

“We anticipate that we will resolve all adjustments proposed by the US Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) for the 2002 through 2004 tax years … within the next 12 months,” the firm’s annual report says.
