The Most Corrupt US Government Ever?

I have never seen such brazen corruption, or such news media cooperation.
President Obama is presiding over a corrupt administration. In fact, the moral rot renders America an international laughingstock. Mr. Obama has created a political culture of arrogance and abuse of power that is infecting every segment of the federal government.

The U.S. Secret Service is a case in point. Hookergate has shaken the agency to its very foundations. Secret Service agents went wild in Cartagena, Colombia, prior to a recent summit attended by Mr. Obama and other world leaders. A dozen agents and more than 10 military personnel have been implicated so far. Bar hopping, boozing and soliciting prostitutes — all of this took place as the Secret Service was supposed to be laying the groundwork for the president’s arrival. Instead, they behaved like puerile frat boys, taking hookers back to their hotel rooms and partying all night long. Some press reports even claim that cocaine use was involved.

The Secret Service was once a venerated institution; its reputation is now in tatters. These agents were more than unprofessional. They engaged in sexually permissive, immoral and illegal behavior. They also put America’s national security at risk, opening them to potential blackmail. The president’s schedule was in one of the rooms attended by a prostitute. Moreover, as Sen. Charles Grassley, Iowa Republican, has rightly pointed out, what if the hookers were acting as spies for a hostile foreign power such as Russia, China or Iran? The agents had become compromised, and could be leveraged to obtain vital intelligence information.

Moreover, the image it sends to the world is that of the ugly American. Decadent, perverse and arrogant — these Secret Service agents embody the worst traits of U.S. culture. Landing on foreign soil, they behaved as a conquering imperial army, lacking self-restraint, humility or even common decency.

You don't think this crap was going on before Obama? Humans are humans and will always act like the imperfect species we are. Since day one, and forever. Everyone needs to start getting real.

Nothing that compares with this administration, unless you consider Bill Clinton soliciting and accepting contributions from the Chinese Red Army.

Please answer this truthfully.. Do you truly believe that Republicans don't make just as morally unethical decisions? Are you tainted a bit by "what you want to believe?" I respect your views and I am asking a serious question. Thank you.

Can you cite any instance of a Republican administration that actively facilitated vote fraud as this one does? Can you cite instances of Republicans pouring billions into the pockets of campaign contributors as is currently going on with Solyndra and similar "green energy" companies? Can you cite a Republican $800 billion "stimulus plan" that nothing more than payoffs to loyal constituencies and donors? Can you cite the Republican equivalent of Obama taking the property of one group of people (GM and Chrysler stock holders and bond holders) and giving to generous campaign donors (the UAW)?

No, I can not. And that brings me back to the question.. do you truthfully believe that Republicans don't engage in unethical tactics such as the above? Humans are humans, like I said. I think we could all open our eyes a little and stop pointing fingers. Just an opinion.

Typical liberal! You imagine that tangible Democrat corruption is justifiable because you imagine that Republicans are equally corrupt, even though you cannot cite an instance of this corruption.

Actually I voted for George Bush, and I very much support my Governor, Walker (WI). I am a realist. Greed is greed on both sides of the cage we call politics. I was just simply asking you if you felt Republicans don't partake in corruption. I believe they do. The mighty dollar talks everyones language. Again, my opinion. No need to name call, sir.
