Good riddance with these fools. Praise the man for doing his job in a time of crisis, not blame him for Romney's loss.

Right now control of the Republican Party is up for grabs.

Expect things to get a lot dirtier before they get cleaner.

"In his book Prosperity versus Planning: How Government Stifles Economic Growth, David Osterfeld discussed two kinds of corruption. As John Mukum Mbaku explains, Osterfeld “argued that in a heavily regulated economy, one can find two distinct types of corruption: ‘expansive corruption,’ which involves activities that improve the competitiveness and flexibility of the market; and ‘restrictive corruption,’ which limits opportunities for productive and socially beneficial exchange.” In other words, when a trade official takes a bribe to allow imports in, or a regulator issues a business license for a piece of the action, they’re making economic activity happen. But when a regulator embezzles public funds or takes a bribe to prevent a business from opening, he is reducing competition and economic activity. So the problem isn’t corruption per se; it’s corruption that restricts productive activity."

Let's hope we see more expansive corrupt GOP politicians, instead of restrictive corrupt GOP politicians.
