My, how times have changed.
It seems like it was just yesterday that radical Rep. Maxine Waters was telling Congress that, “No one should be so big, so important, so powerful that they can violate the rules of this House and the laws of this country without suffering the consequences.”

Rep. Maxine Waters:

“Well, it’s about time. Believe me. The American public does not believe in double standards. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. No one should be so big, so important, so powerful that they can violate the rules of this House and the laws of this country without suffering the consequences. Newt may be Speaker but, he too must account for any and all wrongdoing. It’s about time let’s get on with the business of finding out who Newt Gingrich really is.”

Right back at-ya, Maxine.
Today embattled far left socialist Maxine Waters put on a bizarre display on Capitol Hill to try to clear her name for allegedly improperly using her position for personal gain. The arrogant democrat is even trying to blame on the Bush Administration for her ethics problems.
FOX News reported:

Embattled Rep. Maxine Waters on Friday blamed the Bush administration for her ethics problems — saying she had to intervene with the Treasury Department on behalf of minority-owned banks seeking federal bailout funds — including one tied to her husband — because the Treasury Department wouldn’t schedule its own appointments.

The California Democrat said in a Capitol Hill news conference — an event rarely held during a congressional recess — that she reached out to then-Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson in late 2008 when his department failed to respond to the National Bank Association’s request for a meeting.

“The question at this point should not be why I called Secretary Paulson, but why I had to,” she said. “The question at this point should be why a trade association representing over 100 minority banks could not get a meeting at the height of the crisis.”

But the House ethics committee, which is investigating Waters for allegedly improperly using her position for personal gain, says in its report of charges that when the meeting was held, the officers of only one bank came — OneUnited.

That’s a problem for Waters since her husband, Sidney Williams, served as a member of OneUnited’s board of directors from January 2004 until April 2008, and was a stockholder in the bank.

OneUnited eventually got $12 million of the $50 million in bailout money it requested, enough to keep the bank afloat. The ethics panel says that kept Waters’ family stock from becoming worthless, which the committee says shows that she personally benefited by using her office.

  1. Hey, everyone, I will take my 5th vacation in the last 40 days. Is not it great being lazy and stupid?

  2. The Democrats think that stealing from the American Public is their right.

    These corrupt Democrats, symbolized by the Clinton Malfeasance of the Clintons, entered Government to profit for themselves.

    Democratic Partisans enable this pathetic garbage, simply due to a delusional bigotry for all others who oppose the Democrats.

    It is beyond ugly.

    Can we end it?

  3. I despise hypocrisy therefore I despise liberals!

    Thanks for the crimes, that you’ve given back
    Accusations of feds selling crack.
    And now what you call racist, we call ethics.
    There’s something I must say; it’s this:

    You’re once, twice, three times you’re shady,
    And I mock you.
    You’re once, twice, three times you’re shady,
    And I mock you.
    I mock you.

    When we are at trial, the moment I’ll treasure,
    When they take you apart,
    To scold you, to hold you, inflict you, convict you,
    Face it: You ripped off TARP.

    You’re once, twice, three times you’re shady,
    And I mock you.
    You’re once, twice, three times you’re shady,
    And I mock you.
    I mock you.

  8. Maxine is the ho the rappers love to talk about.
