“Senile” IG Not So Addled After All


Gerald Walpin, the Inspector General who was fired by President Obama last week for being “confused” and “disoriented” (in other words, senile), fired a shot back at the hatchet man and his minions. After standing up to the threat from the President to resign or be fired, Walpin was, in fact, fired, for reasons which defy common sense:

“Mr. Walpin was removed after a review was unanimously requested by the bi-partisan Board of the Corporation,” Obama ethics counsel Norm Eisen wrote in a letter to senators Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R-Me.), with a copy directed to McCaskill. “The Board’s action was precipitated by a May 20, 2009 Board meeting at which Mr. Walpin was confused, disoriented, unable to answer questions and exhibited other behavior that led the Board to question his capacity to serve.”

Mr. Walpin, daring to stand up and defy his detractors, sat with Glenn Beck and underwent the humiliation of having to prove himself of sound mind on national television. I applaud Mr. Walpin for his effort, and Glenn Beck for supporting him.

 Are we really to the point in this country where false accusations are allowed to rule the day? I truly hope not.

    Mr. Walpin is no more senile than we are! I would say that a number of Washington, D.C. White house regulars are more senile-acting than this gentleman.
    The D.C. people are definitely so confused because they don’t know what they’re doing; disoriented because they are out of their depth; unable to answer questions because they can’t explain themselves without a script!
