Gerald Walpin: Tried to Guard More than the Watergate Hotel

Congress ought to open an investigation, New York Times editorialists should be in a state of apoplexy, and MSNBC hosts ought to be frothing at the mouth. Without appropriate documentation or good reason, President Obama has fired a federal investigator who was on the case against a political ally of the president's. Mr. Obama's move has the stench of scandal...Walpin-Gate, Editors, Washington Times, 6/15/2009

Mark Levin routinely calls the President “Milhaus.” Read this Washington Times editorial and other stories about the Gerald Walpin firing, and you'll understand why. It may surprise the White House, but the Presidency is generally held to be an institution not only bound by, but protective of, the law.

Media has largely downplayed this blatantly political firing. Kinda funny how Bush admin firing of blatantly anti-administration prosecutors--who serve at the pleasure of the Prez, BTW--was a full-fledged page A-1 scandal for months and months. How things do change.
