One more time you show your ignorance. clinton had the opportunity to get bin Laden, he refused, American's died. I realize you are dumber than a box of rocks but the wars you refer to were overwhelmingly approved by democrats, you know your hero's; clintons, both of them, al bore, kerry, nobama, biden, hairy reid, weiner.

No. Not in this case.

Eric Holder: "I don't know." "I don't know." "I don't know."
Barack Obama: "I'm still gathering information." "I heard the news about the IRS when everyone else did."
Hillary Clinton: "What difference, at this point, does it make?"
Jay Carney: "The President was informed about the IRS targeting two weeks ago." "Only one word was changed in the CIA report."

What happened to the promise of eventually revealing all the facts about Benghazi? Before it became "old news"?

Oh, for heaven's sake...YOU tick all the boxes!

The Tea Party demanding accountability and smaller government is democracy at its finest and healthy dissent.

Do you have any concept how many liberals and democrats own guns?

Yep, you tick all the boxes. It's people like you who concern me.

Maybe the IRS should target liberal groups who tick all the boxes, political extremism, secular extremism, & kill unborn babies.

Attorney General Eric Holder used the phrase “I don’t know” or some variation at least 57 times during a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee today as House Republicans grilled him over controversies including the IRS’ targeting of Tea Partiers, the Justice Department’s seizure of journalist phone records, and the security lapses surrounding the Boston bombing.

Nope. No hyperbole here.

The Folly of a Syrian War

Like the Iraq War, a U.S. war in Syria would be unauthorized and illegal under international law, and America would have even fewer allies than it had in Iraq. Like Iraq, the costs and duration of a Syrian war have been minimized to make it appear to be a quick, easy, and cheap intervention. Unlike Iraq, there wouldn’t even be the pretense that the U.S. was acting to eliminate a potential threat to our security. Instead, the U.S. would be fighting solely for the purpose of overthrowing another government. While the Iraq War was mostly limited to that country, U.S. intervention in Syria would draw us directly into a proxy war with Assad’s patrons that would likely not remain confined to Syria. Finally, a Syrian war would be waged with the knowledge of all the things that went so horribly wrong in Iraq, which makes the impulse to intervene in Syria both inexcusable and inexplicable.

If you want to think of the President as not being grown up, then use other terms such as "child".
But Eed uses it not as a slur, nooooooo wink wink. Racist f*ck Eed.

No slurs intended.
I call president nobama a boy because he has proven he is not up to mans job, I call you a boy because using your logic I believe you are black. I do not know are care if you are black, white, green or pink, I do know that you are a troll, an ignoramus with out a thought of your own.

The conversation was about Romney's plan for taxing profits made overseas from his campaign. Try to keep up.

If you can't, maybe some of that free healthcare that you mooch off the government can help you.

In the case of the IRS “scandal,” when the news broke, Obama swiftly denounced the agency’s conduct as “outrageous,” and Democrats vowed to fully investigate. Assuming there is no further conspiracy, this issue may harm Obama in the short-term but seems unlikely to effect a broad-based shift in attitudes toward government power other than to intensify feelings among conservatives who already detest the president and the IRS. As the “Tea Party” brand remains extremely unpopular, progressives and independents will generate little sympathy for the self-described “Tea Party” and “Patriot” groups that were targeted.

the IRS scandal is a FOX bust before it even gets out the door.

because you see...how many people watch FOX? not that many. so the attitude of the majority will be....'It was just the Tea Party.'

boo-hoo suckers.

By stark contrast, Monday’s revelation that the Justice Department seized two months’ worth of phone records from the Associated Press is a veritable “game-changer”—a full-blown scandal in every sense of the word. DOJ officials obtained these highly sensitive records in secret, preventing the AP from seeking judicial review; sources for as many as 100 reporters may have been compromised. Pulitzer Prize winners Matt Apuzzo and Adam Goldman, whose investigative journalism has been indispensable, were among the targets.

The gravity of this “massive and unprecedented intrusion,” as the AP described it, cannot be overstated. Attorney General Eric Holder has claimed that his department carried out the action pursuant to a criminal investigation into a national-security leak that “put the American people at risk,” creating a situation that “required aggressive action” to remedy.

A substantial set of Americans, young people especially, has grown deeply cynical of state officials’ rote invocation of ill-defined “threats” to justify abridging core civil liberties. Ironically, this scandal is by far the most compelling example of what “a growing and activist government” might wreak—yet it also appears to be the scandal in which the GOP has the least interest. It most threatens Obama precisely because it is not tainted by partisan grandstanding. It is a scandal on its face and required no trumpeting from congressional zealots in order to enter the mainstream discourse.

But since the 2010 midterm elections, Republicans have demonstrated a remarkable inability to capitalize on Obama’s many vulnerabilities. Notwithstanding pumped-up “narratives” about the administration’s imminent downfall, there is little reason to expect much will change.
