Honesty Is For Suckers

It hasn't been a good day for the Obama administration. Their credibility is shrinking in light of their juvenile slap fight with Fox News, the GAO releases a report showing that the TARP funds for the most part just evaporated into thin air,the Nancy and Harry comedy duo can't get their act together on the healthcare takeover plan, and former vice president Dick Cheney delivered a smack upside their head as far as a plan for Afghanistan that is going to leave a mark and now this comes out this afternoon.

It seems, according to this inspector general, that tens of thousands of people have received $8,000 checks from the government for purchasing a new home that were not eligible to receive such checks. We aren't talking about some little technical detail in the paperwork where they didn't dot all the I's or cross the T's. No we are talking about checks being cut for children as young as 4, illegal aliens, and at least 53 IRS employees, whose job it was to oversee the program to start with.

Now of course there is talk on Capitol Hill to extend this program.

How many times do you have to be the victim of scams before you finally learn the lesson that if you give away other peoples money the line of people to que up with their hands out will extend to the horizon?
