I'd rather have an honest President Obama on the limits of American power in the Middle East than a dishonest George Bush who lied and rushed us into a war that we could not win in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Who cares?
The real news you Obama supporting communists do NOT want to talk about is:
1 - The Libya fiasco where Obama & Clinton screwed up big time and Americans died (actually, were left to die).
2 - The IRS Scandal where Obama & his cronies (Democrats) abused that power of government targeting Americans and denying them their rights and trying to destroy people for political purposes. This is a new low in the history of American government that extended into other government agencies as well.
3 - The Snowden scandal where even the NY Times stated the Obama ahs lost all credibility
4 - Just a couple days ago, Obama took the extreme step of postponing a key provision of his signature legislation (oBOZOcare, AKA, The Unaffordable Heath Care Act).
5 - Jobs, it's all about jobs, commie.
jobs?

so let's see the bills introduced by Republicans that address that issue.

can't find any? sure you can't. helping the American people find a job might make Obama look good. can't have that, can we?

as we all suffer while Republicans have given up on governance to play the identity politics game. it's just a shame that they'll never win another national election until they quite catering to 3 million lowly FOXbots.

5 Worst Ideas From North Carolina’s Tea Party Legislature

Accidentally Banning Domestic Partnerships Between Heterosexual Couples

North Carolina voters took to the polls last year and voted overwhelmingly in favor of a Constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. What voters didn’t realize was that defining the only legal partnership as marriage between one man and one woman could in turn nullify domestic partnerships between heterosexual couples. Which is exactly what happened.

The text of Amendment One reads that “marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state.” Prior to this vote, same-sex marriage was already illegal in the state. The amendment just added an extra layer, making civil unions and domestic partnerships illegal as well — for everyone.

Taxing corporations is a ridiculous concept. It should be ZERO.
What happens when you tax corporations? They put the cost of the tax into the price of their products. Which in turn is paid by the consumers-- living, breathing people.
I know, I know, you want to tax the hell out of fat, bald, white, middle-aged Evil Rich CEO's. And you think taxing the corporations they run will accomplish that. It won't. We have the second highest corporate income tax in the world (second only to Japan), yet do you see CEO's hurting?
All it accomplishes is making our businesses less competitive. And more corrupt-- if a company like General Electric can get their CEO Immelt to suck up to Lord Obama, PRESTO! They get a special exemption, no taxes. It's called Cronie Capitalism.
You want it to be fair? Make taxes 15% ACROSS THE BOARD for all individuals, regardless of income. No exemptions, no deductions. No charitible deductions. No union dues deductions. No discrimination between whether the money came from investments or driving a forklift. The cost of around a QUARTER MILLION IRS EMPLOYEES could be slashed, as the majority of them could be laid off. Tax accountants, tax lawyers, CPA's-- all would have to find something productive to do.
Taxing corporations is a brilliant way for a bureaucrat-breeding politician to bury the true cost of gubbermint. You THINK you pay only 28% tax, while everything you buy contains tax in the price. It's the smartest way for politicians to dupe the public since the payroll deduction started during WWII. People don't seem to notice the "GROSS" amount on their checks. Better for the gubbermint.
Do you not oppose individual income taxation too?

i can't for the life of me figure out why Republicans keep attacking Bush appointees.
Lois Lerner is deeply embedded with the democratic voting machine, and a starlette not only for the liberal left in recent strategies, but since the days of the Clinton/Gore regime. Ms. Lerner joined the Federal Election Commission’s General Counsel’s Office in 1981, served as an Assistant General Counsel, and was appointed in 1986 to head the Enforcement Division. On December 1, 2000, after the defeat of Vice President Gore in his bid for president, outgoing and under articles of impeachment President Bill Clinton appointed Ms. Lerner to head up the entire commission in the position of Acting General Counsel for the FEC, replacing Lawrence M. Noble who left to become the Executive Director and General Counsel of the Center for Responsive Politics, a left leaning non-profit organization who operates opensecrets.org , targeting campaign donors. Prior to joining the FEC, she was a staff attorney in the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ).

During Lerner’s appointment at the Federal Campaign Commission in 1998, a case came under investigation by the House Committee Government Reform and Oversight. Committee members heard testimony concerning Federal Election Commission investigation and prosecution practices.&#8194;The particular incident in question was the FEC refusal to pursue Howard Glicken for soliciting and funneling contributions from Thomas Kramer, a German citizen, to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in 1993. Ms. Lerner defended her dropping the case because the FEC would not have had enough time to pursue Glicken in a lengthy litigation before the statute of limitations expired.&#8194;Burton and others wondered whether they had dropped their investigation because as stated by Lerner, Glicken was a close friend of Vice President Gore, and it would be unwise to investigate.

Frankly sonic-I don't care where this bitch came from-she needs to be arrested and sentenced to rot in a jail for the rest of her miserable commie life.

That's funny coming from someone who rarely posts a source.
I research every post for accuracy before posting it including the source and purposely use as many sources that are considered neutral and credible by both sides. Doesn't always happen all the time but my sources are rarely questioned.
My students always did at least one research project every year by doing their own research using research materials in the library.
The students enjoyed it and actually learned something on their own in the process.
Researching skills have to be taught. You must not have been given that opportunity, sadly enough.

she was never appointed by Bush BTW--she was hired by Miller.

Miller has served most of his 25 years at the IRS, an agency in the Treasury Department, in its Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division (TE/GE). Starting as special assistant to the assistant commissioner for Employee Plans and Exempt Organizations, Miller rose to acting assistant commissioner, then director of Exempt Organizations from 1999 to 2004, in which he hired Lois Lerner as his assistant, his final position in the Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division was as the commissioner of the department from 2004 to April 2009.

In April to September 2009, Miller was moved to serve as commissioner of the Large Business and Mid-Size Business Division, leaving that post when he was named deputy commissioner for Services and Enforcement. Steven T. Miller was appointed by President Obama immediately after the 2012 Presidential election as acting commissioner of the IRS on November 9, succeeding Doug Shulman.

From the DOJ, to the FEC, to the IRS the political maneuvering of these two people have been strategically placed from the administrations of Clinton/Gore and then Obama/Biden, it is only a question as to how many more are undermining the election processes, and facilitating their strong arm tactics to enforce the progressive agenda?

Same here.

Your irrational hatred of Fox and blaming all conservatives for the fact I happen to watch O'Reilly is just part of the liberal nonsense since not much you guys do makes a whole lot of sense.

Now get back in line and follow the herd like a good little liberal.

You're probably getting your marching orders as we speak from the liberal media from on high.

What do you consider "addressing" the employment problem? Creating more idiotic gubbermint "shovel ready" jobs like Lord Obama did years go? Yeah, that was hysterical. He even laughed about how the $800 BILLION they flushed down the crapper didn't do much because the jobs "weren't as shovel ready (ha ha ha)" as he expected.

I don't suppose he could admit on camera that the money went to state gubbermint unions to bail out their pensions. That would be too honest.

Face it. Your Lord Obama is a FAILURE. He and the rest of the Socialist/Democrats had the run of the place for two years and the Senate for four, they blew trillions of dollars paying off their buddies in trade unions and DNC donors, and WE'RE STILL ABOVE 7.5% UNEMPLOYMENT. OVER 12.5 MILLION ARE COLLECTING DISABILITY. WE STILL HAVE A RECESSION. THE ECONOMY SUCKS.

It's like your buddy BJ Clinton ejaculating in the face of a 20-year-old employee. When the blue dress comes out, you have to stop lying about it. Well, you need to do the same about your Lord's handling of the economy. THE NUMBERS DON'T LIE.
