Now it's umbrellas? Republicans will eventually have to get back to real issues like immigration,(improving) economy, sequester, women's rights, background checks, etc. Americans are tiring of their witch hunting and obsession with bringing down the president along with the country.
The IRS using an Obama's enemy list to target citizens
DOJ violating AP privacy to punish them for releasing the info before the president got to
Bumbled, callous and total lack of response to Benghazi
Sending guns into a foreign country without that countries awareness which is an act of war

If you think any of these are witch hunts given the underlining causes for the action, then you are so blinded by partisan stupidity as to lack good common sense.

Yes, Obama has brought us to our knees. Never has an economy took so long to recover and can be laid directly at the feet of Obama and his bumbled responses to everything.

According to Obama he knows nothing about anything. He could be a lyin' but it may tragically true and Val is running the country.

Earthquakes have been popping off every 2 minutes for the past few hours around the planet..

We had the glancing blow from the X-class.. plus a head on M-class just happen.

No doubt at this point (as seen with past large flares earth facing) there is an Earthquake connection.

Just 3-4 days before the Japan 9.0M earthquake in March 2011.. there was a CME which also produced a concussive "explosion" off the west limb of the sun.. but it still came in earths direction..

Actually sending out a visible very fast "shockwave" that can be seen on several SDO filters.. if you search out March 6-8 2011 on the SDO .. its impressive!

I have a question. In this modern day of technology where are the tweets, Facebook, etc of the 34 people who were in Benghazi when all of this stuff started? Forget emails. Somebody had to have tweeted something at the beginning of this mess.

Obama perceives anybody who does not vote for him as the enemy and is willing to profile the opposition to beat them into submission.
That would be Mitt Romney. He even stated it in public more than once in 2012 and again last night on Jay Leno's Tonight Show. "Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn't connect. And he'll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean that's what they sell every four years. And so my job is not to worry about those people—I'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

Officials on Benghazi: "We made mistakes, but without malice"
The officials spoke to CBS News in a series of interviews and communications under the condition of anonymity so that they could be more frank in their assessments.
They do not all agree on the list of mistakes and it's important to note that they universally claim that any errors or missteps did not cost lives and reflect "incompetence rather than malice or cover up." Nonetheless, in the eight months since the attacks, this is the most sweeping and detailed discussion by key players of what might have been done differently.
....The Obama administration's chief critics on Benghazi, such as Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., remain skeptical. They see a pattern, even a conspiracy, to deflect attention from the idea that four Americans had been killed by al Qaeda-linked attackers, on the president's watch. "There is no conclusion a reasonable person could reach other than that for a couple of weeks after the attack,[the Obama administration was] trying to push a narrative that was politically beneficial to the president's re-election," Graham told CBS News.

what a waste of taxpayer money. Obama has already been reelected, and it's not like Mitt was going to win anyway no matter what happened before the election.
O'bama was elected illegally, you might add. The last election was no better than a moslem third world election.

Americans' Attention to IRS, Benghazi Stories Below Average

Slim majorities of Americans are very or somewhat closely following the situations involving the Internal Revenue Service (54%) and the congressional hearings on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and its aftermath (53%)-- comparatively low based on historical measures of other news stories over the last two decades.

UNPOPULARITY
It is clear that the Justice Department overreached on the Associated Press scandal and that its strong-arm tactics are likely to have a chilling effect. But Americans are not big fans of mass media. A November Gallup poll found that only a fourth of Americans rate the honesty and ethical standards of journalists highly. Even bankers ranked higher.
As for Tea Party groups that received extra scrutiny from the I.R.S., an Associated Press-GfK poll released last month found that fewer than a fourth of Americans say they support the group. The Tea Party may well be passé.
The policy issue is a different story, as The Washington Post pointed out this week:“In 2010, the Supreme Court’s landmark ‘Citizens United’ decision cleared the way for corporations and labor unions to raise and spend unlimited sums of money, and register for tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(4).”
That decision was extremely unpopular. An ABC News/Washington Post poll released nearly a month after the decision was handed down found that 80 percent of Americans opposed it.
So an unpopular movement applied for tax-exempt status under conditions made possible by an unpopular court decision, in order to influence politics with unfathomable amounts money from unnamed donors? Good luck gaining sympathy for that.
ZEALOTRY
The Congressional Tea Party Caucus founder, Michele Bachmann, who never misses a chance to say something asinine, suggested to the conservative site wnd.com that it was “reasonable” to worry that the I.R.S. might use Obamacare to kill conservatives.
The article reads, in part:
“Since the I.R.S. also is the chief enforcer of Obamacare requirements, she asked whether the I.R.S.’s admission means it ‘will deny or delay access to health care’ for conservatives. At this point, she said, that ‘is a reasonable question to ask.’”
“Reasonable” and “Bachmann” don’t even belong in the same conversation, let alone the same sentence, and yet she remains one of the most visible spokeswomen for the movement.
Even former House Speaker Newt Gingrich warned Republicans against overreaching. In an NPR interview that aired Friday, Gingrich, referring to the impeachment of President Clinton, said,“I think we overreached in ’98 — how’s that for a quote you can use?”
He continued, advising his party to be “calm and factual.” Ha! That’s too rich, and too late. Republicans are already invoking the I-word.
Republicans are their own worst enemies at times like these, unable to leave well-enough alone, and missing chances to honestly engage the public as they race off the cliff in the supercharged outrage machine.

You have a real problem with wanting to be Prom King and refuse to accept equal number of citizens think Obama is a failure as those that approve of his bumbling leadership.

This is what you get when you try to live your life vicariously through someone else. What is worse is you choose a government official.

Nice of you to ignore the fact that 74% think this is serious and when you base your hopes on others remaining forever stupid you are teetering on being a sociopath. Actually the numbers are not that shabby and shows the voting public is paying attention. The rest our lost in the cell phones.

"FOX Business: Capitalism Lives Here

The blue-chip average roared past the 15000 mark for the first time ever as traders cheered data suggesting than labor market is in better condition than previous thought.

Today's Markets

As of 3:06 p.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied 139 points, or 0.94%, to 14971, the S&P 500 jumped 16.2 points, or 1%, to 1614 and the Nasdaq Composite surged 37.8 points, or 1.1%, to 3378.

Wall Street has had a manic week: The markets sold off on Wednesday, just to rally on Thursday. Now, world trading desks have focused their attention squarely on the American economy.

The Dow and S&P 500 both hit milestones. The blue-chip average topped 15000 for the first time ever, while the broader S&P surpassed 1600. Both were up more than 13% on the year.

Economically-sensitive stocks led the way higher. Industrial, materials, financial and consumer discretionary names fared the best. Defensive plays like utilities, telecommunications and consumer staples performed the worst.

Economic Woes 'In the Rearview Mirror'

The Labor Department said nonfarm payrolls rose by 165,000 in April from March, beating expectations of 145,000. The unemployment rate ticked down to 7.5% from 7.6% for the month, the lowest level since December 2008. Economists expected the rate to hold steady. March’s nonfarm payroll increase was also revised up to 138,000 from a previously reported 88,000."
