Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Brighton, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, suggested on Sunday that the White House may not have been completely forthcoming with Congress about the Petraeus affair.
GMAFB. Did this guy lose his 5 year career with the FBI because they switched to mechanical pencils so they didn't need him around to sharpen #2 yellows, or what? No, Rep. Rogers. The better question is, Eric Cantor.
But when he was given the David Petraeus scandal on a silver platter by an FBI whistleblower, more than a week before the election, Cantor turned the information over to the FBI, the same agency which had been conducting the cover-up on Obama's behalf. Indeed, this cover-up is why the whistleblower came to Cantor. The predictable result of going to the FBI, headed by Robert Mueller, who was re-appointed by Obama, is that nothing was done and Obama won the election.
This wouldn't be a first. Cantor also went out of his way to protect Obama friendly "establishment" players, too. To kick swamp slime up one more notch, there's also the Lieawatha Warren, and Holly Petraeus, connection too. Why, this whole damn election, with all the voter fraud that went on, is beginning to look like the biggest charade ever perpetrated on the American public by the alleged "Two Party" system.

Representative Fred Upton (r) CD-6, incoming Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, has already publicly committed himself to bucking the global unions:
"We have heard the grass roots loud and clear, and will have a hearing early next Congress," said Mr. Upton, a Michigan Republican who is facing several others in his party in a bid to earn the gavel of the powerful committee. "The last thing we wanted to do was infringe upon personal liberties - and this has been a good lesson that Congress does not always know best."
Sounds good, eh? Confession and redemption usually does.

The fine folks over at FreedomWorks have set up a website Down With Upton in opposition to Rep. Upton's ascension to the Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
The site has compiled an in-depth listing of Fred Uptons' big government, big spending, more government regulation votes.
As of this writing there are 13,516 petition signatures that will be delivered to the Capitol Hill offices of the House Republican Steering Committee members.
Make your voice heard.
