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

Pseudoliberal
Pseudoliberals are people that say that they are Liberal but really aren't. In some rare cases, they are Conservatives in denial. Because Liberal ideas and being Liberal is a growing trend, people have become quick to adopt being Liberal without actually understanding what Liberalism is

Reminds me of a new show on television about how the brain plays tricks on us. Last night something was said about how it's too hard to make our brains believe something it doesn't want to see.

I had to pause it and look at my husband and say, "Liberals...that explains it."

President Obama's reaction to the IRS in May:

The IRS must apply the law in a fair and impartial way, and its employees must act with utmost integrity. This report shows that some of its employees failed that test.
"Iíve directed Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to HOLD THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE FAILURES ACCOUNTABLE, and to make sure that each of the Inspector Generalís recommendations are implemented quickly, so that such conduct never happens again. But regardless of how this conduct was allowed to take place, the bottom line is, IT WAS WRONG. Public service is a solemn privilege. I expect everyone who serves in the federal government to hold themselves to the highest ethical and moral standards. So do the American people. And as President, I intend to make sure our public servants live up to those standards every day."
...Two months later it's a distraction and a phony.
Can someone please explain this discrepancy? Leosnana? Lily? Sonic? Anyone?
And can someone please name those who were held accountable?
Thanks so much.

Well, when you stop and think about it from an international perspective, it makes sense. Not all those who are in legal limbo with immigration authorities are illegals and they should not be labeled as such. Those seeking asylum are "legal defined refugees." That is the issue addressed by the U.N. and completely ignored by the "chick on the right". People on the right have an inability to see the whole picture.

Did you happen to see Piers Morgan interviewing Jay Carney defending Obama concerning his handling of the IRS? He tried to convince the easily convinced Obama didn't become involved initially because presidents don't get involved with investigations underway by the Justice Department. Even though the DOJ was busy breaking other laws to investigate anything and Obama admitted he first heard about it on the news.
Incredible.
Good morning.
I'm surprised that you are now quoting President Barack Obama who you showed wanted further investigation, and greater accountability and transparency in these government agencies under scrutiny now. Darrell Issa investigation of the I R S revealed by testimony of the Republican I R S Commissioner that President Obama had nothing to do with the targeting activities of anti-government right-wing political groups applying for 501(4)c tax exempt status.

Obama's defensive offensive

The president wants to make sure blame falls on the GOP.

President Obama sounds like a man back on the offensive.

The president is reprising his core message that what the economy needs is more federal spending on popular priorities such as infrastructure and education, not less.

And his stump speeches last week in Illinois, Missouri and Florida put Republicans on notice that he will blame them if a standoff over spending results in a government shutdown or a financial crisis over the federal debt ceiling this fall.

"Repealing Obamacare and cutting spending is not an economic plan," Obama lectured his opponents. "You can't just be against something; you've got to be for something."

But is that true?

House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) doesn't seem to think so. When asked recently about the glacial pace of legislation in the House, he responded: "We should not be judged on how many new laws we create. We ought to be judged on how many laws that we repeal."

Boehner has a point. The number of bills a Congress passes is no guarantee that it's doing important work. Roughly a third of the measures Congress passes are inconsequential actions such as renaming post offices.

But there's also a flaw in Boehner's argument. Although the current Congress is on pace to pass even fewer laws than the previous one (which set a modern record for lack of productivity), it hasn't succeeded in repealing many laws either. The GOP-led House has voted nearly 40 times to repeal all or part of Obama's healthcare law, for example, but hasn't succeeded in overturning the act ó although it has cut its funding.

Boehner has said he has no intention of shutting down the government during budget talks this fall, a move he believes would be counterproductive.

As one of his allies, Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), put it last week: "The only way Republicans will lose the House is to shut down the government or default on the debt. Shutting down the government is not in the best interests of the American people, and it makes you look politically irresponsible."

There is no such thing as "wrongful termination" when most business employees are "employees at will."
Government employment conditions are an anachronism that need to be changed. If you screw up, you're history.
Again, we are discussing government employees. It makes absolutely no difference that "most business employees are 'employees at will'. In government, people have a contract that sets out what constitutes "wrongful termination" and the employee has rights that other "employees at will" do not have. Job security is one of the very reasons people choose to work for a government agency rather than for a private employer where they are at the mercy of the "boss".

I think you are jealous because you don't have the same job security.
