More From Our "Fair and Balanced" Media...

So, can anyone explain why this story isn't getting *any* air time?

Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is executive at company that built Obamacare website
First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is a top executive at the company that earned the contract to build the failed Obamacare website.

Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at Healthcare.gov. CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company.
Remember when Halliburton won a no-bid contract and the media lost its collective MIND because Dick Cheney once worked for them? It was front page news for several weeks straight, and it was often overlooked that Cheney was completely unaffiliated with Halliburton when the contracts were awarded. Because Cheney once worked for Halliburton, anything the company did was suspect - even though Cheney was retired and completely divested of Halliburton - their success or failure had no impact on his retirement package.

Here we have a sitting senior manager with direct ties to the Obama administration who wins a no-bid contract - despite her company being dangerously incompetent with a track record to show it - and nary a peep is heard. Yet again more proof of why I voted for Romney - does *anyone* doubt that had the whole ObamaCare fiasco had happened to the Romney administration, that the media would have ignored Ann Romney's ties to the company that produced it?

I'm sure it's just coincidence, though - much like those airborne porcines I saw yesterday...

That is all.

Yep, interesting that the media is IGNORING this... Isn't it (or is it)???

Except that Ann never worked a day in her life, so she couldn't be affiliated with any company.

Bill Clinton retired to NYFC to run his money lauder ... er ... foundation.
My fearless prediction: Teh 0ne will retire to a foreign country that has no extradition treaty with the U.S.

Oh it is getting airtime - on the 'subversive' websites (like this one ;-) but nary a comment on the lamestream sites. And yes I do watch the local versions to keep up with local doings (that's how I found out about the police standoff about 6 blocks from my house!) and the local weather and such. mooshell's room-mate story, not a peep.

Another non mentioned item is that the same company is responsible for distributing 2 billion $ of Sandy relief $.
