<quoted text>There is nothing wrong with trying to keep our country safe. There is a problem with the abuse of power that is a daily activity for the current resident of The White House. There is nothing wrong with a whistle blower when he is putting the spotlight on political bias and corruption. Every one in the country knows that Obama is using his office to silence any one that doesn't share his radical left wing agenda. Even his most ardent followers can see what has been happening the past several years.
Let's not forget his data mining was started under George W Bush. In 2006

My question is why didn't it get as much attention then as it is now?
How come Issa didn't start an investigation back then?

and let's look at the IRS scandal. Besides the fact that more liberal organizations were denied tax exempt status than Tea bagger groups and that all those tea bagger groups were granted tax exemlpt status,
The Bush administration did the same thing, only the orders did come from the oval office and not some local republican IRS agent in Cincinatti. The Bush administration used the IRS to go after the NAACP, Greenpeace

again where was Issa when this was going on?

as for Benghazi, 13 embassies were attacked while Bush was in office,

again where was Issa?

You continue to deny pure facts. Saddam said he had no WMDs, we found no WMDs!
Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 at all!
Daddy Bush bombed Iraq in 92," Clinton bombed all of Iraqs military buildings, destroying all attempts of continuing or starting another nuclear program!
Saddam was complying with the UN inspectors, allowing the searches so, Bush makes up a fricking lie about Mobil labs.
The sanctions imposed by the UN/US was crippling Iraq which forced Saddam to comply
All this damn evidence of incompetence on Bush's behalf &, you choose to call the man a genius! Is the region better off now than when Saddam was in control?
O'bama lost the war in Iraq--he left waving the white flag to Iran. We may as well call Iraq Iran. Because that is what it has turned into. We have 26 thousand Americans protected four bases with the Iraqi Christians working for us. The rest of the place is controlled by Islam and the people O'bama allowed to take over the country. GW Bush was a genius. O'bama is an idiot. The whole world on fire in Muzzieland because O'bama is not a leader--no one cares what a timid community agitator does. Burn baby Burn.

There's no "right" side to be on, they will never learn this lesson as well as they've learned the lesson that the war industry loves to fund campaigns.

I agree, that was a waste of time and money 'cause it was never getting past the House.
The move for reasonable measures like background checks was damaged by extremist laws passed by some states and shameful theatrics by Obama. Nobody likes to be bullied and to be seen as caving to pressure.

Greenpeace is considered a terrorist organization in Europe and should be here also. The NAACP was embezzling millions of dollars. And what was the other one that you libs have been holding up as proof for the past several weeks. Oh that's right---the church that supports moslem terrorists financially to kill our soldiers overseas

You must be a hell lot of fun at a party.

Quest: "I think it is going to snow."

You: "Crack cocaine is really a problem."

Quest: "Huh, I was talking about the weather."

You: "I am talking about drugs, try to keep up."

You are NEVER on topic or connect what your point is.
