Of course this is the guy conservatives claim is at the center of the first fake scandal they're pushing versus the Obama administration. Of course.
Now, in an interview with FOXNews.com. Walpin called the 'lack of candor' charge 'a total lie,' and repeated his contention that he was fired for daring to go hard after Johnson, an Obama supporter.
As for the explanation that Walpin was confused at a meeting, he responded, improbably, by referencing a verbal slip-up that Barack Obama made during the campaign, which conservatives tried unsuccessfully to make hay out of at the time.
Said Walpin: 'I would never say President Obama doesn't have the capacity to continue to serve because of his (statement) that there are 56 states.' And he added that same is true for Vice President Joe Biden and his 'many express confusions that have been highlighted by the media.'
And he amped up the level of rhetoric, declaring: 'I am now the target of the most powerful man in this country, with an army of aides whose major responsibility today seems to be to attack me and get rid of me.'
And who does Gerald Walpin make political contributions to? $1,000 to Rudy Giuliani. $1,000 to John Mccain. $500 to Elizabeth Dole.
