Barack Obama, our next President

Lost amidst the White House he-said-she-said of finger pointing, scandal, incompetence, venality, hubris, vanity, error, greed, gluttony, embarrassment, cover up, stupidity, amateur bungling, brownnosing, grandstanding, photo-opting and hearings as the result of a few minor mistakes made by the Obama administration-

an administration which rode roughshod over a several outdated laws, certain small parts of the Bill of Rights written by irrelevant white dudes;

an administration that got people killed, violated civil rights, harassed government employees, ignored it’s basic responsibilities and common sense- are these small, little, niggling details:

The folks in charge are freaking hypocrites; and because the are hypocrites they have nothing to offer the American people.

Nothing as in Zero (0).

Their ideas don’t work, and all they stand for is some vague notion of fairness and equity, with themselves as judge over what’s fair and what’s not. Even in that they fail.

As demonstrated recently, their notions of fairness and equity are worrisome. They want to win politically, by fair means or foul. That’s their only idea of fairness.(kind of like "freedom of speech" on a liberal college campus--only allowed if you agree with the anti-American professors who are busy indoctrinating the naive students).

Let’s get that straight right now: Neither the Democrat Party, nor the Republican Party (or the Libertarians or the Party According to St. Ron Paul), occupies some morally superior position either by virtue of ideology, philosophy or through the grace of God.

Political parties, units of government, corporations, non-profits, churches or GBLT parade groups are not bestowed with moral qualities.

Only people are moral beings. Institutions, including the corporations known as presidential administrations, are amoral.

They all do whatever they can do to survive.

I was struck by this as I was reading a Chicago Tribune editorial-board editorial that was less-than-supportive of the administration’s explanations about the triptych of scandals now besieging the White House.

“At each of these turns,” writes the Tribune,“the Obama administration has looked manipulative, defensive and peevish. In one sense those aren't startling reactions; they're vulnerabilities for any White House that, like this one, wants an image of moral righteousness, honesty and transparency.”

I know, I know: You’re laughing too that anyone, even the Chicago Tribune editorial board, could take seriously an Obama administration “that wants an image of moral righteousness, honesty and transparency.”

But the administration does want to project that image. Obama was re-elected not because he was effective as the executive head of government, but because the American people long for leaders who offer them moral righteousness.

The American people will overlook incompetence for the ability to live daringly, greatly and righteously.

You made me laugh as you reminded me of my wife's former friend. There was a group of four of them. My wife and two of the friends decided the other was a nutcase liberal so they kind of went separate ways.

Years later the liberal nutcase showed up at a class reunion, dressed like a hobo and she actually crashed the reunion, not paying (typical kike Democrat), came in and started juggling balls. This same person had a bumper sticker on her car in the early 2000s with the text "think globally, act locally".

Ironically, her car was a 1973 Dodge that emitted blue smoke out the exhaust.

You must be related to her, freak!

Benghazi Bombshell: Leaked Emails Were Edited to Make Obama Look Bad

Turns out the press got played again by Republicans. Jake Tapper has the smoking gun of the original email from the Obama administration which differs significantly from the “leaked emails” ABC ran with.

....What is even worse for Republicans is that the real email expresses dismay at the uninformed spreading bullcrap. The only people screaming bullcrap about Benghazi were Republicans who sought to use it to win an election.

Another day, another conspiracy debunked. Now, when will the press stop falling for this crap? Note to the media, the next time a “Republican congressional aide” or unnamed source has a smoking gun OMG!!11!!! Nixon Bush scandal, you might want to find a back up source, and get the original documents before being Breitbarted by edited emails/videos/etc.

Will the media apologize to Obama and Clinton? Will the leaker be outed? Will an investigation be set up to find out who misled the public on such a serious matter? We await House Republicans investigating themselves to stop the misinformation leaks.

WATCH: CBS' Major Garrett calls out GOP over doctored Benghazi emails
The former Fox News correspondent takes the rare step of chastising partisan sources on air
When it emerged that ABC News had been handed misleading summaries of internal Obama administration emails hashing out post–Benghazi attack talking points, we asked who burned the network's White House correspondent, Jonathan Karl. Somewhat unexpectedly, Karl's CBS News counterpart, Major Garrett, provided us an answer: Congressional Republicans.
Karl had strongly suggested that he was quoting actual emails from White House official Ben Rhodes and State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland that he had personally reviewed, instead of summaries passed on by partisan sources. According to Garrett, that's because "Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes" and "also provided what they said was a quote from an email written... by Nuland."
Whoa, says Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo. Garrett just "did something I don't feel like I've seen in a really long time or maybe ever on a network news cast." Reporters are fed leaks from "partisan, tendentious sources" all the time, and for a host of reasons — "some good or somewhat understandable, mostly bad" — nothing is ever done about it. Well, Garrett just did something.

the FOXbots will be in full denial mode. took carol about 30 seconds to go there. the FOX fantasy is strong in that one. i suspect overuse of prescription drugs much like the FOX talking heads. they'd have to walk around all day in drug induced fog to think that anyone beyond the lowly 3 million would actually buy into their BS.

Fox's Benghazi Talking Points Implode

Last night, Major Garrett, formerly of Fox News but now with CBS News, reported that Republican-leaked emails that supposedly showed President Obama had meddled with talking points about the attack on Benghazi last September 11 - well, didn't. And how did Fox News react to this? By more or less ignoring it - and demanding further investigation.

Garrett didn't say how the mistakes could have been made. Did Republicans alter the emails or just make a mistake? Whatever the reason, considering how Fox News has been foaming at the mouth accusing the White House of manipulating talking points, you'd think this would have been big news on the "fair and balanced" network. But no.

In a discussion with Cheney-apologist Stephen Hayes last night, Greta Van Susteren pretty much ignored Garrett's revelation and instead suggested that the emails had been cherry-picked. Hayes demanded further investigations. As he spoke, a friendly Fox banner read: GOP: SHOW US THE EMAILS! DEMANDS FOR MORE BENGHAZI DOCUMENTS. Now, much as I think I've heard more than I ever need to know about Benghazi, I'll grant that it's possible there are more legitimate questions that remain unanswered. However, the fact that "liberal" Van Susteren both failed to highlight the Republican misinformation as well as the lack of any smoking gun against the President speaks volumes about Fox's real intent.

The Tea Party has been a total embarrassment to the Republicans and America. Nothing more than an extention of the NRA, Bigotry, anti women and Gays. Old white fanatics at work. Thank goodness they were only a splash in the pan.
