Obama’s Dangerous Contempt for the Rule of Law
Whatever the investigation into misconduct at the Internal Revenue Service reveals, we already have all the evidence we need to understand President Barack Obama’s fundamental attitude toward the rule of law. That evidence is right there in the public record, and what it shows is indifference and contempt.
The Constitution gives the president the power to appoint officials to fill vacancies when the Senate isn’t in session. In 2012, Obama made such “recess appointments” to the National Labor Relations Board and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau -- even though the Senate had stayed in session precisely to keep him from doing so.
Obama’s lawyers argued that the Senate wasn’t really in session even though it claimed to be: It was going through the motions to block Obama, but it wasn’t taking up bills or nominations. No previous president had ever tried this maneuver, and an appeals court has just ruled that it was unconstitutional....
The president’s routine violation of the law that he is supposed to uphold isn’t covered in the media as a scandal. It ought to be.

When the IRS targeted liberals
Under George W. Bush, it went after the NAACP, Greenpeace and even a liberal church

While few are defending the Internal Revenue Service for targeting dozens of conservative groups, there are two critical pieces of context missing from the conventional wisdom on the “scandal.” First, at least from what we know so far, the groups were not targeted in a political vendetta — but rather were executing a makeshift enforcement test (an ugly one, mind you) for IRS employees tasked with separating political groups not allowed to claim tax-exempt status, from bona fide social welfare organizations. Employees are given almost zero official guidance on how to do that, so they went after Tea Party groups because those seemed like they might be political. Keep in mind, the commissioner of the IRS at the time was a Bush appointee.

The second is that while this is the first time this kind of thing has become a national scandal, it’s not the first time such activity has occurred.

“I wish there was more GOP interest when I raised the same issue during the Bush administration, where they audited a progressive church in my district in what look liked a very selective way,” California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said on MSNBC Monday.“I found only one Republican,[North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones], that would join me in calling for an investigation during the Bush administration. I’m glad now that the GOP has found interest in this issue and it ought to be a bipartisan concern.”

The well-known church, All Saints Episcopal in Pasadena, became a bit of a cause célèbre on the left after the IRS threatened to revoke the church’s tax-exempt status over an anti-Iraq War sermon the Sunday before the 2004 election.“Jesus [would say],‘Mr. President, your doctrine of preemptive war is a failed doctrine,’” rector George Regas said from the dais.

And it wasn’t just churches. In 2004, the IRS went after the NAACP, auditing the nation’s oldest civil rights group after its chairman criticized President Bush for being the first sitting president since Herbert Hoover not to address the organization.“They are saying if you criticize the president we are going to take your tax exemption away from you,” then-chairman Julian Bond said.“It’s pretty obvious that the complainant was someone who doesn’t believe George Bush should be criticized, and it’s obvious of their response that the IRS believes this, too.”

The Republicans keep trying to implicate the Obama administration in this IRS debacle, everyone needs to sit back and stop making accusations in regards to this action. After all the facts are researched they may just find that these IRS employees were just trying to do their job or if there was some criminal act take whatever action is allowed by law. Those on the right may be disappointed to find out that the perpetrators are Republican sponsored people hired by Rove to muck up the works to draw attention away from all their misdeeds.

That's pretty much the story.

Clinton (D) cut the federal deficit (yearly overspending) until it was actually within its means, cleaned up Kosovo without a single US soldier getting killed, tried to reform healthcare, and other stuff, and the republicans dogged him with phony scandals, and finally impeached him on the basis of an affair.

George W Bush (R) striped down government to the point where it screwed up hurricane Katrina response, it let coal mines explode, started two wars that instantly turned into quagmires, let vaccines get away with impurities, and crashed the economy. But the loudmouth republicans complained very little about all of this, except for the last one.

Obama (D) caught Osama Bin Laden (no relation), reformed healthcare, brought the economy back from the cellar, but he's been again targeted by republicans who consider him a communist, facist (contradiction), and worse. He ended one war and is on track to end the other.

Too bad the election didnt go your way,maybe next time!!!

The Decline of the Obama Presidency: His second term is coming undone not because of scandal but because of decisions made in the previous four years.
John Dos Passos, the novelist and historian, once said: "Often things you think are just beginning are coming to an end." His observation was made in the 1960s. But it's true today of Barack Obama's presidency and the promise of a bright future for his second term.
Mr. Obama's re-election stirred grand expectations. The vote heralded a new liberal era, or so it was claimed. His victory was said to reflect ideological, cultural and demographic trends that could keep Democrats in the majority for years to come. His second four years in the White House would be just the beginning.
Now, six months later, the Obama administration is in an unexpected and sharp state of decline. Mr. Obama has little influence on Congress. His presidency has no theme. He pivots nervously from issue to issue. What there is of an Obama agenda consists, at the moment, of leftovers from his first term or proposals that he failed to emphasize in his re-election campaign and thus have practically no chance of passage.
Congressional Republicans neither trust nor fear the president. And Democrats on Capitol Hill, to whom Mr. Obama has never been close, have grown leery of him.

I don't know what Fred is talking about. I think when we were falling into financial collapse in 2008---remember when George couldn't hand the Presidency over fast enough? That would warrant a statement of the "end of America" Under George W, the stock market returned do you even know? Of course, because you represent some of our brightest I'm sure ---- negative annual return for the whole presidency. Now, Obama as such a terrible President, what has he done? Oh, the S & P 500 has been positive every year and people have doubled their wealth over that period of time. The contrast is amazing, yet, you just can't get your head around it. Try a little math...it hurts but it helps in measuring what is REALLY going on.

The only reason the markets are doing better is that we keep printing money like there's no tomorrow. Once that stops, say byebye to all those gains.

The markets have been artificially inflated and will fail.

Unemployment is still stagnant and GDP growth is pitiful at best. If these numbers were better, then the action in the market would be real, but it isn't.

Think about that.

Oh, who had control of Congress for two years prior to the collapse...the Dems.

Christie sees wrting on the wall!!!

Republicans Fuming Over Chris Christie's Senate Decision
The New Jersey governor's decision to hold the Senate race in October 2013 means it will be difficult for the GOP to contest the seat.

Republicans are fuming over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's decision to hold an early special election to fill the seat of the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg, with several Washington-based operatives suggesting he's putting his own interests ahead of the GOP's. The decision to hold a separate special election in October 2013—just two weeks before his own election—would give any interested Republican candidates little time to announce, organize a campaign, and raise the necessary money to take on a top-tier Democrat, likely Newark Mayor Cory Booker.

Christie announced at a Tuesday press conference that the election to fill Lautenberg's seat will be held Oct. 16, just before his own gubernatorial election on Nov. 4. The primaries would be scheduled for Aug. 13. Christie acknowledged he was legally able to schedule a special election in November 2014, but he wanted New Jersey voters to elect their senator as soon as possible. Christie was less clear about whether he was legally allowed to schedule an election to coincide with his own, emphasizing that he didn't want to waste any time in seating the newly elected member. On several occasions, he repeated his decision had nothing to do with politics.

Teabaggers arent happy with his decision,but then again they arent happy at all these days.

With Hispanics, Mitt Romney hasn’t learned his lesson

Mitt Romney is back — and so is his foot.

As reported in The Wall Street Journal, Romney is planning on re-emerging in ways that will “help shape national priorities,” such as assisting the Republican Party as it tries to regain its footing with the non-white voters who ignored the GOP standard-bearer at the polls in 2012

Yes, the man known for favoring the term “self-deportation” and offending scores of Hispanics by using the word “illegals” over and over again during prime-time presidential debates wants to give Republicans advice on reaching out to minorities.

Romney told the Journal that in addition to wishing his campaign had poured more money into ads targeting Hispanic voters, the GOP needs “to translate our message in a way that minorities understand.”

Honestly, of all the slips Romney committed during last year’s campaign — from letting his staffers tell Spanish-language media that he was struggling with Latinos because they were simply not well-informed to never calling out his fellow Republicans for using degrading language when speaking about immigrants or Hispanics — this latest is probably the most insulting.

Some Latino advocates spent the year leading up to the election painting him as a racist for not compromising on his views toward illegal immigration. But I always thought his biggest failure as a candidate was his inability to connect with people who aren’t rich and privileged. His terrible tone-deafness for non-whites was a close second.

Let’s unpack his recent comment starting with the tricky, loaded word “translate.” My first impression was that Romney used the word because he, like so many others, still believes that most Hispanics can’t speak English.

If the GOP doesnt embrace the blacks,latinos,gays, womens rights they can never get their white guy in the Whitehouse.

So let the tea baggers yak away, it wont help!

Obama has everything under control for the next 3 years!!

All the whining and screaming and posting from the soggy tea baggers on Topix cant stop it!

John Boehner who - after attending meetings in 2008 regarding the economy crashing - cashed on on his mutual fund knowing full well it was about to tank and then blamed this insider trading on his broker, wants accountability.

John Boehner, who promised Wall Street executives he'll do everything he can to fight Wall Street Reform, wants accountability..

I can go on with several examples of how absurd this demand of his is, but it's getting late, and who has that much time. If I were to start in the 1990s when he passed out tobacco lobbyists checks on the floors of Congress, literally, that would take hours.

Whiskey soaked Boehner and his consort McConnell are still singularly devoted to bring down Obama. As little as I regard the US voters (Bush-Cheney, twice!) these twins are shooting themselves in the foot with the voters.

John Boehner wants accountability for something his own party has done against the democrats time and time again. When, Mr. Boehner is someone going to jail for taking us into a war that cost thousands of American lives ? When is someone going to jail for throwing our economy under a bus instead of being protected by our Congress? When are our big corporations going to pay their fair share of taxes instead of being sheilded by our congress? When are you going to stop big energy companies from ruining our ground water supplies in this country? And number one when are our representatives and senators going to start working with our President instead of always working against him

Obama administration defends Verizon phone record collection
The Obama administration on Thursday defended its collection of a massive amount of telephone records from at least one carrier as part of U.S. counterterrorism efforts, re-igniting a debate over privacy even as it called the practice critical to protecting Americans from attacks.
The admission came after Britain's Guardian newspaper published on Wednesday a secret court order related to the records of millions of Verizon Communications customers. The surveillance appears to have involved the phone records of millions of Americans.
