Obama, the uninterested president.

"President Passerby needs urgently to become a participant in his presidency.

Late Monday came the breathtaking news of a full-frontal assault on the First Amendment by his administration: word that the Justice Department had gone on a fishing expedition through months of phone records of Associated Press reporters.

And yet President Obama reacted much as he did to the equally astonishing revelation on Friday that the IRS had targeted conservative groups based on their ideology: He responded as though he were just some bloke on a bar stool, getting his information from the evening news.

In the phone-snooping case, Obama didn’t even stir from his stool. Instead, he had his press secretary, former Time magazine journalist Jay Carney, go before an incensed press corps Tuesday afternoon and explain why the president will not be involving himself in his Justice Department’s trampling of press freedoms.

“Other than press reports, we have no knowledge of any attempt by the Justice Department to seek phone records of the Associated Press,” Carney announced."

"At the start of Tuesday’s briefing, the AP’s Jim Kuhnhenn pointed out that in all the controversies of the moment — the Benghazi “talking points,” the IRS targeting and the journalists’ phone records —“you have placed the burden of responsibility someplace else.. . . But it is the president’s administration.”

President Passerby, however, was not joining the fray. Carney repeated Obama’s assertion that the IRS’s actions would be outrageous only “if” they are true. Never mind that the IRS has already admitted the violations and apologized."

Another finger pointer....
Dam, these socialists are all fingers, no toes, and no integrity.

"Eric Holder points finger at his DEPUTY who secretly obtained journalist's phone records as Obama is forced to say he has 'confidence' in the Attorney General."

Holder also didnt' know anything about the gun running to the mexican cartels.

"The first question for White House spokesman Jay Carney at Tuesday's press briefing went right to the heart of the growing crisis facing President Obama:

In the matters of the Benghazi terror attack, the IRS targeting conservative groups, the Justice Department going after AP phone records,“…doesn’t responsibility for setting tone, setting direction ultimately rest with the president?”

That question of “where the buck stops” harkens back to another Democrat who occupied the Oval Office some 60 years ago,“Give ‘em Hell” Harry Truman but the answer is as relevant today.

What we have is an administration that is adrift and leaking more controversy and unanswered questions every day.

Benghazi may not be "Obama's Watergate," as Sen. Lindsay Graham has called it, but what we have is an administration that is adrift and leaking more controversy and unanswered questions every day.

On Libya, a detailed examination of the record shows that the White House has had no consistent message on what happened on September 11. In fact, they changed their message from day to day -- and it's clear that the administration's actions in the days and weeks after the Benghazi tragedy was all political maneuvering.

The White House has been caught not telling the full story, and modifying the narrative for political ends.

But that’s just a piece of the troubling picture emerging from the West Wing.

We have Attorney General Eric Holder -- he who managed to dodge full responsibility for the “Fast & Furious” gun-walking debacle in the president's first term -- revealing Tuesday that he had recused himself from the investigation into Justice Department gathering of phone records from more than “20 separate telephone lines assigned to the AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012.”

The bipartisan response to Monday's disturbing challenge to press freedom was swift. Speaker Boehner's office said Monday,“they better have a damned good explanation.” And Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, a Democrat, acknowledge he’s “very troubled” by the allegations.

Then there is the very serious matter of the IRS singling out conservative Tea Party and Patriot groups, among others, for special scrutiny when they sought to apply for tax-exempt status. The president says he's “outraged”-- but also said Monday that he knows nothing about this news.

But “newly obtained documents” show the current IRS chief knew about the agency's targeting of Tea Party groups as early as May 2012, and other officials in Washington were clued in more than a year before that, as the scandal continued to spread.

Perhaps even more telling is White House spokesman Jay Carney’s acknowledgement to reporters Tuesday that the administration is getting its information on these matters from news reports.

Again, who’s in charge here?

And finally there's what appears, from the public record that has emerged so far, to be the prevarication, without any clear explanation, from the administration on Benghazi:

On November 28th, 2012, Carney stated that the State Department had only changed one word of Susan Rice's talking points -- we now know this not to be the case. We also know that within hours of the attack, the White House, the State Department and the FBI received emails saying that an Islamic group had claimed credit -- even going so far as to identify Ansar al-Sharia as the group.

This epidemic of evasions, and most likely falsehoods, only raises more questions. The White House, the State Department, Hillary Clinton and any additional officials involved have committed a serious breach of trust with regard to the American people, and moreover, their actions are an insult to the American citizens who died in Libya that night, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

What’s next?

Just months into his final four years in office, President Obama is facing a credibility crisis, one that threatens his fundamental abilities to govern."

<quoted text>Do you remember during the campaign when Harry Reid announced that "someone" had told him that Romney had not paid income taxes for the previous few years or some such? Makes one wonder "who" told Reid that. Wonder if it was leaked from the IRS. The media, instead of insisting that Reid produce PROOF that Romney had not paid his taxes, it made Romney PROVE that he HAD. They took that info from Reid and ran with it.
Watching his fellow "investors" explain how they all avoided taxes by taking their pay as "Loans" and watching Willard squirm around and refuse to release his tax returns was proof enough unless you have the IQ of a field mouse.

Douglas E. Schoen has served as a pollster for President Bill Clinton and is currently working with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He has more than 30 years experience as a pollster and political consultant.

Here's what he has to say about Obama and team.

I Don't think you think that. You know better.

What is a Obamagasm??? It sounded like you named the feeling you get when you pleasure yourself to your Obama poster. I don't know. Were you "messin" with me ;-0
The terrorists have already won.

The Right Wing Wackos and the Christian Taliban are bankrupting America and destroying the Middle Class, and shredding the Constitution.

Poor old Obama,

"Vernon Jordan, a close adviser to President Bill Clinton through his darkest days, told us:“It’s never all right if you’re the president. There is no smooth sailing. So now he has the turbulence, and this is the ultimate test of his leadership.” Jordan says Obama needs to do something dramatic on the IRS, and quick:“He needs to fire somebody. He needs action, not conversation.”

Obama’s aloof mien and holier-than-thou rhetoric have left him with little reservoir of good will, even among Democrats. And the press, after years of being accused of being soft on Obama while being berated by West Wing aides on matters big and small, now has every incentive to be as ruthless as can be.

This White House’s instinctive petulance, arrogance and defensiveness have all worked to isolate Obama at a time when he most needs a support system.“It feel like they don’t know what they’re here to do,” a former senior Obama administration official said.“When there’s no narrative, stuff like this consumes you.”


Comeuppance is sweet to the palate.

Not targeting the Right Wing Wacko Tea Party for tax fraud review would be negligence in and of itself.

Now if we can only get the rest of the Right Wing Wacko freeloaders an deadbeats off the "tax free" gravy train - things would improve.

"The Internal Revenue Service asked tea party groups to see donor rolls.

And it asked what books people were reading."

Now I ask any reasonable person , does this sound like a sensible government? or does it sound like a Hitler or Stalin form of government.

or an Obama form of government.

I'm asking reasonable people, not the usual run of the mill socialists here on topix.

Good post, Reid. Butt IS infested with parasites. They're crawling around his grey matter, too. He can't possibly tell us ANYTHING about Soros we don't already know. But, in his atrophied brain, he ACTUALLy thinks so.
He posts Lwing garbage, yet demands liberal posts from repubs. His watered down attempts to convince us, the Benghazi cover up is over, is laughable. He continues to ignore serious allegations, involving Eric Holder's Justice Dept. tapping the Associated Press's work & personal phone lines, as ILLEGAL. He turns a blind eye to the IRS targeting Conservative groups for political gain & claims it's what every administration does. Really??? He's definitely a devout, Nobama loving dumbocrat... I told him ages ago, I didn't read his links. My exact words... L wing ain't my cup of tea.... Let us pray, may Obama's Allah keep his posts under 25 characters each. If not, I'll be scrolling right on by. He & IO bore me. Now, let's get this party started.....It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Haha! You're hilarious!
First off - I insult Bill only because he's an arrogant condescending asz-hat with the sensibilities of a narrow-minded junior-level bureaucrat with a new policy manual in his hand. He was that way before I ever encountered him, and doubt he'll ever change. If he didn't behave that way, I wouldn't insult him.
I only insult bored because he's as dumb as a bag of hammers, completely socially inept, and so old he's regressing, or so young he's never voted. I'd prefer NOT to insult him, but he's hard to ignore with his non-stop diarrhea of uselessness. I've asked him to quit being an idiot so we could treat him as an adult- but he just can't help himself.
As far as insulting YOU - I hate to say it - but I barely know you're around. I can't think of anything I know about you except you're another run-of-the-mill angry RWW. Mostly I just don't pay you any attention at all.
As far as being a bully goes - I asked Bored to put aside his pathetic little names and discuss a policy issue. I made it easy on him, I threw him real basic, simple Republican issues that he should be familiar with if he's going to run his adolescent mouth non-stop. I just wanted to see if he could say ANYTHING intelligent without being an idiot. I didn't expect him to wet his pants and act like a coward. If somebody acts like an idiot long and often enough they should expect to be smacked down from time to time.
I don't suffer fools lightly. Throw a bunch of cheap propaganda around that isn't rooted in the truth, and odds are VERY good that I'll point it out. Do I do it to make myself "feel better"? No. But stupidity must be cured. Which is why I replied to this post.
I think that you miss that I actually like and respect some of these misguided RWW's. When Syn's meds are in-line I think she's pretty sharp and has a wicked sense of humor and fun. She picks up on jokes that nobody else here is sharp enough to see. I think poor Aggie has been reading the wrong websites for FAR too long - but she's a good person and we can at least talk about it. BigDummy1 has a big heart and I'd have him over to dinner anytime as long as he doesn't keep looking under the table for commies. Bill in D'ville - ok, you got me there - but I do appreciate that he's around to serve as a cautionary tale of what not to ever become.
Funny that you'd get so worked up because I stated that IO was actually a highly intelligent person. Are you feeling a little insecure or slighted?
So anyway - take your crystal clear view and bad attitude with you. You mean nothing to me.
Long live the King of Irony!

That was just good politics. Reid was bluffing, but he didn't have anything to lose. He forced Romneys hand. I thought that was brilliant.
This comment, in a nutshell, summarizes this person's wealth envy and lack of integrity.

Reid wasn't bluffing, he was lying. Guess that's OK with the clueless and uneducated...

Bill, Buttboy is down to his last few remaining neurons. He actually believes, we care why he likes us or not. What a waste of time, it took him over an hour to prepare this loooong drawn out explanation. What a waste!!! He should've just gone on to bed.:)
