Already the game is afoot.
The National Review has an interesting piece that raises some questions about our own accountability trail with regard to purchasing large systems, and awarding contracts. Apparently Michigan is being used to circumvent Illinois' tougher bid process and timeline for the purpose of Medicaid processing. According to Illinois officials:
" "Illinois has an intergovernmental agreement with the state of Michigan and CNSI is one of Michigan's vendors," Jakubek wrote in an e-mail. "Communication with MI and the entire project team is ethical and necessary to work on this project."Except that competitive and oversight clauses are absent with this type of government to government agreement.
The 'whistle-blowing' sources will be protected, as the reporters are legit.

U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) yesterday commented on the resignation of the acting commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Steven Miller:
"The recent revelation that the IRS took steps to intentionally target a range of conservative groups is deeply disturbing, and the acceptance of the IRS acting commissioner's resignation today is the bare minimum that the President should accept. Asking the Treasury Department to further investigate itself is not good enough. The Administration must consider appointing an outside special counsel to make certain that those responsible are brought to justice.Indeed.
There should be non-stop congressional hearings on ALL the activities this administration has been involved in. The IRS is merely the tip of the proverbial iceberg. A special investigator should not have hands tied to merely THIS violation of first amendment rights, but should be encouraged to root out ALL the corruption Obama has cultivated during his term.
And those roots run deep.

And I am not talking about a sporting event.
A few days ago, I posted the New Ford Commercial highlighting a REAL-LIFE customer in one of those interview ambush moments who declared he would rather spend his money on a car company that was all American and did not take bailout money. It was a classic, and the guy frankly represented the best of the US of A, and its disgust with bailouts, government run enterprise, and the corruption spawned in Chicago, that now resides in DC.
It SHAMED those other two other car companies.
If you followed the link above, you'll note its gone. The video no longer exists at the address, and has been pulled. Michelle Malkin reports the new "Attack Watch" site, the newest joke of the Obama Administration proudly declares the successes of the bailouts as an answer to the Ford commercial. undoubtedly, the pressure is on for FORD leadership to get on knees and beg to kiss the ring of an outstretched Obama hand to be sure. I doubt pulling the ad will be enough to salve the bruised ego of "the won" and his creepy, crony allies.
Hugo Chavez should be so proud of his protege.
In other news, Chris (the guy in the ad) has something to say below the line.
