Actually I hate the taking on of -gate to any scandal. It is lazy and keeps the mentality that every new thing is a re-hash of an old event. It supports baby-boomer navel gazing and I simply abhor that too.
So let's just call this yet another Obomination (get it like abomination except its Obama). Okay, maybe that's lame too. At any rate, the latest scandal/corroption/abuse of power is the use of email and sending unwanted emails to unsuspecting people.
"White House Reveals Identity of Firm That Sent Unsolicited E-Mails on Health Reform,The White House revealed to FOX News that it hired a private communications firm to distribute mass e-mails, including unsolicited spam to help sell President Obama's health care plan"
In a nut shell, Obama has been caught lying again. They allowed Govdelivery, a large email company, to send out the emails to anyone's email address they had. Then when people complained, Obama lied.
When your knee-jerk reaction to any complaint or accusation is to lie, eventually the pile of lies is too high for even the most ardent supporter. Obama risks his own political life and the careers of every democrat who supports him if he can't control his lying and starts 'fessing up.
