It's called 'Failure of Leadership'. His non-involvement in the decision making processes of his Administration is the cause of the scandals. He has created a 'command climate' wherein his subordinates make the decisions and let the chips fall where they may, without the courtesey of POTUS getting a phone call!

All of these scandals are not being created in a vaccum. There is a reason they are happening, and it's beginning to pile up. If he doesn't get his house in order his legacy suffers. It remains to be seen if is signature piece of legislation can rehabilitate his legacy, as it hasn't gone into effect yet. It will be years before we see any fallout from the Affordable Care Act, barring it being entirely repealed.

This is called 'ineffectual leadership'- it's bad for the moral of the country, and bad from a security standpoint.

And you have no clue what NAVY PATRIOT was talking about in his last post to you- do you?

. This IRS drama has been the result of in internal battle between the GOP establishment and Tea-Party groups over money....
. IRS leadership has been mostly appointed by the GOP establishment. They were doing a hit job on T-Party groups to help Karl Rove (Less T-Party groups = More donation money for the GOP establishment)
. Karl Rove has been openly fighting T-Party groups because T-bagrs had been defeating candidates supported by the GOP establishment....
. T-Party groups were competitors of Karl Rove's group....

Really? Name me the successful businessman, scientist, auhor of color in recent history, who has creaed lasting impact on humanity, who has hidden behind a front man of the 'right race'.

I'm not talking about black Joe Schmoe who got his small business loan from the the white loam officer at the bank either.

Most black men of history have made their contributions boldly, proudly and certainly without hiding.

Why is it liberals have no respect for blacks who don't come up through the ranks of affirmative action?
What is this obsession with punishing hard work and rewarding failure?
For some reason, a Black man has to be on Welfare, no education, and hate anyone who makes money. That is what Liberals think.

8. Republicans like Charlie Crist get booted out of office for hugging the Negro president
9. Chris Christie derided by Republicans for his praising of Obama's work
10. GOP Whites in Congress would not socialize with the Negro President (Segregation is Alive in D.C. for the World to see)
. Viva Apartheid!
That's not the republican party pookie, but to be honest, when stating facts like yours are true, they are not racist.

Eric Holder was a racist gang member that had a federal firearms law violation and assault. He was also in charge with WACO. He is not fit to serve except in the mafia or the Black Panthers.

The lunacy of attacking FOX is childish and moronic. More liberals watch FOX than MSNBC and CNN combined.

Chief IRS counsel bailed Jeremiah Wright's church out of IRS probe in 2008...

I'm telling you; lies have no strong roots...

. Cheney/Rove had been using their appointees at the IRS to go after their political foes....

. This new IRS fake scandal has Karl Rove's finger print all over it. Rove hated that surge of new T-party groups supporting weak candidates, causing Republicans to lose seats to Democrats in general elections

. It'd be only natural for Rove to ask his appointees at the IRS to help his Party by impeding the explosion of new T-party groups....

. Investigations will reveal that those same Cheney's appointees did routine hit jobs on NAACP, Black Churches, Reverend Wright and now, on T-Party groups....
