Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

<quoted text> I'll refresh your memory of this IRS scandal. It is about a conservative appointee IRS Commissioner Shulmin attempting to cover-up the IRS targeting teabagger tax payer groups and individuals . Why would he do it? We all know about the deep antagonism between the old guard Establishment Republicans( teabaggers call them 'RINOs') and the upstart young Turks Tea Party republicans. Think, woman, think!
Now O'bama's OSHA is being pulled into the mix...seems conservatives and Republicans that owned companies were put under scrutiny and fined also under false pretenses. This is the same crap that goes on in Democrat controlled Chicago for years. What happens when you send a Chicago thug and his cronies to Washington?

Why is George Bush not in prison? He is identical to Adolf Eichmann. This is what we have allowed to take control of our government.
An idiot can predict what will happen when you let a bunch of fascists take over. Predictably, they want to disarm the population.
Send George Bush to prison.
(so all Obama has to do is say.....It was for national security.(always worked for Bush.))
... f**k*ng idiots....
First, why do you think Bush was so great of a president, it's ok for Obama to do what he did?

Second, the Constitution does not apply to anything leaving the country, such as an email sent to someone outside the United States. If you reference something as unconstitutional, you need to be more specific about the sender and recipient being within the jurisdiction of the Constitution.

Third, you didn't include any reference to the Constitution in your argument. I quoted the Constitution where it forbids the government from reading your email without a warrant. All you said was "Bush did it, too" without identifying any constitutional limits, like whether the subject emails were domestic in origin or delivery, or whether the subject emails were foreign in origin or delivery.

If you think Bush should be sent to prison, perhaps you should tell Obama to tell Holder to prosecute him.
... I had to laugh a little with that last sentence. Like Obama can tell anyone to do anything. He's not even involved in government. He's just a prop used to make it appear as if someone's actually president. You should send your request to Vallerie Jarrett. She makes all the presidential decisions.

Friend,
Yes, I have changed my political affiliation to the Democratic Party.
It doesn’t take much to see the culture of intolerance surrounding the Republican Party today. I have wondered before about the seemingly harsh undertones about immigrants and others. Look no further; a well-known organization recently confirms the intolerance of that which seems different or strange to them [...]
The complete disregard of those who are in disadvantage is also palpable. We are not looking at an isolated incident of rhetoric or research. Others subscribe to motivating people to action by stating,“In California, a majority of all Hispanic births are illegitimate. That’s a lot of Democratic voters coming.” The discourse that moves the Republican Party is filled with this anti-immigrant movement and overall radicalization that is far removed from reality. Another quick example beyond the immigration debate happened during CPAC this year when a supporter shouted “For giving him shelter and food for all those years?” while a moderator explained how Frederick Douglass had written a letter to his slave master saying that he forgave him for “all the things you did to me.” I think you get the idea.
When the political discourse resorts to intolerance and hate, we all lose in what makes America great and the progress made in society.

<quoted text> What is more important is the appalling disgrace on Republicans for blocking Obama's appointments to these government agencies that have left them leaderless and demoralized . "Finally, Democrats are taking action to resolve the problem.Senate Democrats frustrated with the GOP’s blocking of a string of President Obama’s nominees are seriously weighing a controversial tactic known as the “nuclear option.”
The option — which would involve Democrats changing Senate rules through a majority vote to prevent the GOP from using the 60-vote filibuster to block nominations — was raised during a private meeting Wednesday involving about 25 Democratic senators and a group of labor leaders.
........Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) should demand a majority-only vote.“If we bring this nomination [Obama nominee for the EPA, Gina McCarthy] to the floor and there is a request for sixty votes, which we’re not going to get, I think it is time for the Democratic leadership to do what the American people want and that is to have a majority rule in the United States Senate,” Sanders told Democratic members of the panel last week."

Regina McCarthy should be rejected because of her participation in the Lisa Jackson sockpuppet email scandal.

But, go ahead and change the rules.

Republicans will control the US Senate in 2015.

If the IRS had been targeting liberals, the Bush administration would have been blamed to kingdom come.
But please prove me wrong. You must include your source, however. Which is why I'm not holding my breath.
It's all real simple babe the Dems have never really had spin machines like Rove, Limbaugh, Hannity and your hero Glenda Beck or idiots like you who hang on every word of that bullsht.

You said that.
WTF changed prior to the invasion of Afghanistan & two years later?
So now your claim is Bush invaded Afghanistan as a punishment for harboring Bin Laden?
He had no intent of getting Bin Laden?
Wow!
GOD!!! I understand you can't comprehend what you read numbnuts but the mission was to remove the Taliban! Just like the mission was to remove Saddam!!! Again Bush said, "Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists, AND THE GOVERNMENTS THAT SUPPORT THEM."

The latest round of House hearings about the Benghazi incident provides a perfect example of how American politics has been warped and gummed up by bombastic, partisan extremism. A cool, methodical inquiry could well uncover serious mistakes and provide remedies so that future incidents can be thwarted before more American diplomats are killed in the line of duty. But the current generation of Republican lawmakers does not know how to do cool. Hot rhetoric more suited to a Glenn Beck tirade seems to be the only way they know how to communicate.[...]
It is a fever dream for Republicans to think they can bring down President Obama with this pipsqueak of a scandal. Possibly, though, they could do some harm to former-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the strongest Democratic prospect for the 2016 presidential election. A smartly targeted investigation might do that.
More likely, though, Republicans will continue to overreach and come off looking like hyper-partisan, blustering witch hunters.
http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/oped...
And that explains:
Obama lying to cover up an Al Qaeda attack on the United States.
Hillary lying to cover up the administration's actions which coordinated perfectly with the Al Qaeda plan to kidnap Stevens.
The security around Stevens reduced coincident with Al Qaeda's plan to kidnap him.
The Special Forces units ordered to hang the Americans in Benghazi out to dry and not interfere with Al Qaeda while they attempted to kidnap Stevens.
