Obama played the race card and that was the end of Hillary and Bill.
Yeah, is that why the Clintons held no grudges as Hillary became Obama's first Secretary of State and Bill became Obama's hardest working political campaigner that defeated Romney / Ryan in 2012?

The Obama administration has already blamed prejudicial tax enforcement on "low-level employees."

Lois Lerner (I'm not good at math") will resign to pursue other opportunities.

Bush will be blamed.

Of Mitt Romney's many costume changes, the new Superman outfit portraying him as the would-be savior of the American auto industry wins for most imaginative. Understood: His infamous “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt” op-ed has proven a great inconvenience to winning votes in the industrial Midwest. But continually insisting that one didn't say what one said is severely not honest.

A new Romney campaign ad for Ohio intones,“He has a plan to help the auto industry.” A nice sentiment now that the carmakers no longer need saving. His plan in the winter of 2009, when General Motors and Chrysler were clearly going under, was to deny them government aid.

President Obama spent those grim days winning government guarantees for automakers over fierce Republican resistance. Consumers were cowering under their beds. It was government help or disaster. Auto industry analysts predicted that even solvent Ford could not have endured the collapsing chain of suppliers that would have undoubtedly followed an unsupported GM bankruptcy.

But Romney lectured the car companies to get private financing at a time when private lending had virtually dried up. Healthy companies couldn't get it.

Interesting that the ad mentions Romney's endorsement by the Detroit News. Everyone should read that editorial. While backing the Republican, it strai

No, it was the Israeli-American lobby that convinced a Israeli-American amateur youtube video maker to collaborate with an Egyptian-Christian citizen to make the inflammatory anti-Muslim video and post it on the internet.

Having sex with a subordinate in the workplace is sexual harassment, resulting in immediate dismissal.

President Obama vowed Monday to hold the Internal Revenue Service accountable if reports of political targeting are proved true.

"If in fact IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that's outrageous. And there's no place for it," Obama told reporters.

"And they have to be held fully accountable. Because the IRS as an independent agency requires absolute integrity, and people have to have confidence that they're ... applying the laws in a nonpartisan way."

Obama said he learned of the allegations through news reports on Friday.

The IRS also applied extra scrutiny to applicants with statements that "criticize how the country is run" or that sought to educate the public on how to "make America a better place to live," designations that would have included conservative political groups looking to apply for 501(c)(4) status.

Those disclosures are included in the appendix of an inspector general's report, obtained by CNN, that has caused widespread anger among lawmakers on both sides of the aisle as well as conservative groups.

You did everything but reference the Constitution. I'm curious. How do you feel about these principles:
Congress, elected by the people, govern all taxing and spending for the government.
Good idea?(That's a yes or no question.)
The only command form the government anyone is obligated to obey comes to the people in the form of a law written and passed by Congress. The president does not have the authority to issue any edict to the people, or any order to anyone or any entity outside the Executive branch of government.
Good idea?(That's a yes or no question.)
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Good idea?(That's a yes or no question.)
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury,...; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
Good idea?(That's a yes or no question.)
Of course, you don't have an answer to this. That's because you have something in common with Obama. Neither one of your worthless asses have every even read the Constitution.
So, you're saying Republicans are breaking the law by blocking implementation of Obamacare and the Dodd-Frank bank reform act. Impeach every Republican that is convicted of this high crime and misdemeanors'!

In the South, undocumented farm labor has almost totally replaced Blacks in the fields. The owners claim that African Americans don’t want the jobs, and are incapable of doing the work. Yet, as reported in the May 6 New York Times, Blacks in Vidalia and Moultrie, Georgia, have gone to court, charging farm owners with discouraging them from applying for jobs in the fields and, once hired, paying them less than Latino workers and then firing them because of their “race and national origin.”

More bluntly put, African Americans refuse to be treated as slaves or fugitives in a foreign land. We’ve starred in that movie, already. One man who was fired after a week in the fields told the Times,“We are not going to run all the time. We are not Mexicans.”

The farm owners, like their historical brethren, seek the closest approximation to slave labor that society will allow. Undocumented, seasonal workers who are racially and ethnically identifiable – and, theoretically, removable, at white society’s convenience – fit the bill.

The slave master always claimed that his Black captives were too lazy and shiftless to work, necessitating the application of whip and lash and knife and fire as moral implements. Old Master hasn’t changed a bit. He has replaced the Blacks, who had “no rights that any white man is bound to respect,” with right-less undocumented workers. He claims to love his Mexicans and Central Americans, just as he told his northern visitors that he loved and cared for his slaves, back in the day – until they were spoiled by emancipatory aspirations.

African Americans are not wanted in the fields – or the factories, or the offices, for that matter – because they are “joiners”: the U.S. group most likely to want to join a union or other self-help organization. The imperative to unity in the face of implacable hostility of the larger society, is an essential component of the African American legacy (one that Obama does not share). As free labor, Blacks rose to the top of the hierarchy of union-joiners, which is, in descending order:

African American Women

African American Men

Hispanic Women

Hispanic Men

White Women

White Men

Latinos would be right behind Blacks in bargaining for better wages and working conditions, if they were documented and secure in their residency. Many come from political cultures in which labor solidarity is more ingrained than in the United States. It is not that African Americans need to “run” as hard as undocumented Mexican field workers, but that field laborers need to be emancipated, so they can work as free men and women, with bargaining power, civil and human rights, and the force of law on their side.

Hard work should be well-paid work, but only the organizing ability of the hard-workers can make it so. Guest worker programs institutionalize perpetual worker insecurity in the fields, in order to guarantee high profit margins for shareholders up and down the corporate chain, from the farms outside Vidalia, Georgia, to the WalMart mega-grocery in Chicago (endorsed by food Czarina Michelle Obama).

The IRS would not have targeted political organizations without direction from political operatives in the White House, under the direct control of Barack Hussein Obama.

Can you imagine how the people on the ground in Benghazi felt when they saw no support whatsoever after so many hours had gone by.
An F-16 which has a maximum speed of over Mach 2, could have been dispatched from Aviano, Italy and at maximum speed, could have been there pronto. Aviano Air Base is about 1,000 miles from Bengazi. At 1,500 MPH that would take about and hour to get off the ground and be there.
Drones were flying over Benghazi at the time, but the dastardly Obama/Clinton and scumbag DemocRATS gave the stand down. Let them die! How will I look two weeks after saying Al Queda is on the run, Mission Accomplished if we don't cover this baby up before the election?
DemocRATS suck.
When I search for what the U.S. could have done, I got lots of results. I picked popular mechanics because it is not a political source and who's have a problem with popular mechanics, right? These loony left wingers attack anyone that doesn't walk in lock step with them.
