Obama Has Given An Ethics Pledge Waiver To Many In His Cabinet

It becomes more and more apparent every day that this Administration is used to coloring outside the lines. They have no morals and certainly no ethics. I was looking around on the White House Website today and found this bit of interesting news.

Obama has granted many in his cabinet Ethics Pledge Waivers. First, let's look at the definition of ethics. According to Miriam-Webster, ethics are defined as:

1 plural but sing or plural in constr: the discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation
2 a: a set of moral principles : a theory or system of moral values <the present-day materialistic ethic> <an old-fashioned work ethic> —often used in plural but singular or plural in construction <an elaborate ethics> <Christian ethics>
b plural but sing or plural in constr: the principles of conduct governing an individual or a group <professional ethics> 
So now that we know what ethics are, it is easy to see why Obama would have to pass out waivers to those who surround him. The first one should have been given to himself. He has no morals and no ethics whatsoever. Here is the list of those granted waivers:

  • Jocelyn Frye, Director of Policy and Projects in the Office of the First Lady
  • Cecilia Muñoz, Director of Intergovernmental Affairs in the Executive Office of the President
  • William Lynn, Deputy Secretary of Defense
  • Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to the President
  • Jonathan Kravis, Associate Counsel, White House Counsel’s Office
  • Chris Weideman, Associate Counsel, White House Counsel’s Office
  • John Brennan, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism
  • National Security Advisor, General James Jones
  • Robert Bauer, Counsel to the President
  • Shailagh Murray, Assistant to the Vice President for Communications
  • Caroline Atkinson, Special Assistant to the President for International Economic Affairs
  • Jonathan Greenblatt, Special Assistant to the President and Director of Social Innovation
  • William M. Daley, Chief of Staff

    If you go back to 2009, Obama's first Executive Order was that the people in his administration take an ethics oath, which he himself reportedly did first. Makes for passable theater, but as you point out, it's all for show.
