No, the scandals aren't made up. You can see more, and more papers, and news outlets picking up the Benghazi Muslim attack, and the IRS scandal. They never should have spied on the reporters. They are the people who stood by that foolish man, and he turned on them. Now they will cover his every move. No more Mr nice guy.

It is hilarious to watch these republicans hate the program they created. It would be even funnier except for all the damage it does to the nation.

I was referring to the reporters who have protected Obama for 5 years, and now he can't move that they won't follow.

His media protection is diminishing.

I read this morning that there are more scandals to come. It is almost as though the reporters have been shielding Obama from scrutiny all along, and suddenly decided, after he spied on them, to stop covering up for him, and let the truth out.

Yes, Obama bit the hands that feeds (protect) him.

He should have NEVAH spied on the media.

This will be his swan song.

The EVENTS aren't made up, but seeing them as "scandals" IS, liar. You give terrorists a pass in order to attack the President and Sec'y Clinton for purely political purposes - that is making up a scandal, whatever lies you choose to tell. Obama's already harshly criticized the IRS scandal and at least one IRS official has resigned, so obviously he's on top of that one even if YOU'RE not.

Apparently since you oppose 'spying on reporters' who leak sensitive information about fighting terrorism, you're on the side of the terrorists. That only confirms what I've already said.

No brains in your head, you're embarrassing yourself.

It is only one step to call them enemy combatants. Then you know what happens to enemy combatants according to the Pat Act.

No, we want to bring down the Communist Obama. He supports Muslims who hate America, and will do anything to bring it down. Can you honestly say Obama likes America from all the underhanded things he's done? LOL

If you right wingnuts want to talk about the real 'death panels' you should be discussing insurance company claim adjustors and actuaries!

When was the last time anyone heard any Republican at any level of government say, "I have a great idea for creating jobs."

Oh, I hear that all the time. It goes something like, "If we just give all of our money to some rich guy, just think, he might give me a job."
