Lies and more lies. It would be so much easier for him if he would just try to tell the TRUTH.

The president is determined to make history for more than what he accomplished on Day One by being the first African American to take the oath of office. He is working very hard to write a grand epitaph for his presidency: Father of universal health insurance, grantor of citizenship to illegal immigrants, vanquisher of income inequality, gay emancipator, global warming healer, drone destroyer of al Qaeda and the man who finished the work of the Cold War.

Obama is racing from initiative to initiative like an advance man for a traveling circus plastering the walls with advertisements.“See the miracle of Obamacare!”“Thrill to the magic of amnesty!”“Watch the wealthy shot out of a cannon!”“Touch bin Laden’s bloody tunic!”“Marvel as nuclear warheads disappear!”

Obama speaks often of his determination to tackle all of these topics, and more. But his round-robin approach to making history, a seemingly endless rotation of tending to seemingly impossible dreams, doesn’t quite satisfy. His strongest supporters allow that the president’s multiform vision is more aspirational than practical. Things won’t work out as he had hoped, they say, but Obama will have given the nation the gift of great dreams.

While Obama is in Berlin bequeathing the world his dreams, the realities of his government are turning into a nightmare.

Five cabinet departments – Treasury, Justice, State, Health and Environment – are mired in scandals of varying degrees, raging from the egregious to the embarrassing. The intelligence apparatus Obama says is responsible for stopping untold attacks is under assault and fast losing credibility.

Whether some journalists have been prosecuted for
leaks has to be an easy question to answer.
It isn't a matter of opinion. It's either yes or no.
Let the Republicans produce the name of a journalist
who has been prosecuted for leaking or STFU.

If it is so easy to answer, why did Holder give an evasion rather than a full answer?

Well, he had a choice: lie to Congress or admit that he lied to a Federal judge.(Seems he might have done both!)

So that's the liberal's new standard? Herr Obama and his fascist stormtroopers can read your mail and sick the IRS on you, but as long as they don't actually prosecute a journalist, everything is above board?

LOL! I love watching the liberals wiggle and jive while their party heads us towards a police state.

They have been for contempt of court for not revealing their source. Holder and crime family took that out of the equation by raiding the AP office and taking their computers and files to find out who their source was. A clear violation of the 4th amendment.

If the Rosen probe was appropriate why didn't Holder follow through, and charge him with something? He must think we are all Democrats too stupid to reason things through. Of course it wasn't appropriate. Holder is an ass.
