There's an easy way to solve this.

Let's say the Bush administration put up "significant resistance" to release emails about a terrorist attack to the Senate Intelligence Committee in a timely fashion. And, because of prolonging their cooperation, it created more confusion and false information which they allowed to continue until after winning an election.

Would that be a cover up in your eyes?

You're watching too much television, moron. Don't you know that's why you're so ignorant of the recent history of the United States, and who Obama really is, and Obama surrendering to Al Qaeda, and Islamist terrorists running the Department of Homeland Security, and there being 30+ million illegal aliens in the U nited States, and Obama bringing Islamist terrorists into the country, and the government not tracking Islamist terrorists here, and the capitalists revolting against the communist government in Venezuela, etc., etc., etc.
How about you open your copy of the Constitution and compare what Andrew Napolitano says to it. I've noticed you've never used any text from the Constitution to back up anything you say.
Glad you're back. I can't wait to hear your defense of your hero and pick for POTUS, Andrew Napolitano, after his appearance on the Daily Show.
Did you see him kiss Jon Stewart on the cheek, twice?
Did you see him kneel in front of the Black woman dressed as Lincoln and kiss her hand?
Did you see his arguments on slavery get ripped to shreds.
Is he still your pick for POTUS?

Which actions did he specify?
I know he said Obama has violated the Constitution numerous times. He even quotes the text from the Constitution to back his case up.
I'm curious. What unconstitutional actions did he specify?
Napolitano:… What President Bush did with the suspension of habeas corpus, with the whole concept of Guantanamo Bay, with the whole idea he could avoid and evade federal laws, treaties, federal judges, and the constitution was blatantly unconstitutional, and in some cases criminal.

Nader: What’s the sanction for President Bush and Vice President Cheney?

Napolitano: There has been no sanction except for what history will say about them.

Nader: What should be the sanction?

Napolitano: They should have been indicted. They absolutely should have been indicted. For torturing, for spying, for arresting without warrant. I’d like to say they should be indicted for lying, but believe it or not, unless you’re under oath, lying is not a crime — at least an indictable crime. It’s a moral crime.

Nader: So you think George W. Bush and Dick Cheney should — even though they’ve left office — they haven’t escaped the criminal laws. They should be indicted and prosecuted.

Napolitano:[...] the evidence … is overwhelming, when you compare it to the level of evidence required for a normal indictment, that George W. Bush, as President, and Dick Cheney, as Vice President, participated in criminal conspiracies to violate the federal law, the guaranteed civil liberties of hundreds, maybe thousands, of human beings.

You idiots on the right have no clue about Obama's healthcare plan. You all are basically a bunch of parrot heads. Repetitious clowns that don't possess the ability for self thought. If you morons would help any where near as much as you hinder the America people would be far better off. We desperately need healthcare. The Republican party has never been for the poor or working class, since the baggers came along they have become the biggest threat to civil unrest that we have ever seen. How anyone that draws Social Security or gets medi-care could ever vote Republican is a mystery.
Guess I'll just have to ask the question directly and start with you.

Raising the income tax which affected everyone's take home pay and also raising taxes on more of everything we consume isn't helping the economy or unemployment. In fact, the economy is just barely crawling and unemployment is getting worse among minorities.

Why do you support these policies?

Teachers' unions are the blight on our public schools.

It's speculated de Blasio closed down very successful charter schools because the unions don't like success or teachers who don't give them money to ruin their schools too.

The country should switch over to charter schools - and vouchers - and tell the unions where to get off.

If you really care about the poor, I mean.

So why do liberals want to keep the poor in "poverty traps"?
Shouldn't we be listening to other solutions from the other side to help them escape it?
Why is the new liberal Mayor of New York City living up to his campaign promise to destroy successful charter schools? These schools are in most cases, the only way out of poverty for minority children.

<quoted text>Do you really expect the biased media to extensively report Obama's many distortions the way they would have had it been Romney, Palin, Bush or McCain?
See in LibLand (like in Orwell's 1984), lies are called approximations.
"Mr. Obama was upfront in his memoir that dialogue in the book was “an approximation” and that some of the characters in his book had been compressed or combined. But the specifics had remained mostly unknown. In his book, Mr. Maraniss documents several of the efforts by Mr. Obama to invent or alter characters to help his narrative.
The most dramatic was that of Mr. Obama’s New York girlfriend. In the book by Mr. Maraniss, the president acknowledges that some of the events he describes as taking place with the New York girlfriend actually took place with another woman he dated in Chicago.
“Like many characters in the memoir, he introduced her to advance a theme, another thread of thought in his musings about race,” Mr. Maraniss writes in the book.
The book by Mr. Maraniss, who is also the author of a biography about Bill Clinton, is not the first effort by journalists to examine Mr. Obama’s telling of his own life story.
In 2008, Serge Kovaleski, a New York Times reporter, interviewed friends of Mr. Obama’s from college and high school who questioned the scenes in Mr. Obama’s memoir about smoking marijuana and trying cocaine as a youth.
“Friends, classmates and mentors from his high school and Occidental recalled Mr. Obama as being grounded, motivated and poised, someone who did not appear to be grappling with any drug problems and seemed to dabble only with marijuana,” Mr. Kovaleski wrote.
Mr. Maraniss offers a third view, describing Mr. Obama as part of a “choom gang,” a group of high school basketball buddies in Hawaii who frequently smoked marijuana.
Last year, a former New York Times reporter, Janny Scott, wrote a book that raised questions about Mr. Obama’s frequently mentioned story about his mother’s battles with insurance companies at the end of her life.
“I will never forget my own mother, as she fought cancer in her final months, having to worry about whether her insurance would refuse to pay for her treatment,” Mr. Obama said in 2009, as he campaigned for passage of his health care program.
Ms. Scott’s research suggested that Mr. Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, was covered by health insurance at the time, and was instead denied disability coverage that would have helped to pay expenses that were not covered by insurance.
Aides to Mr. Obama last year said the book confirmed the basic facts of the stories that the president told about his mother, including the health care expenses that she struggled to pay.
The campaign for president this year is unlikely to turn on questions about Mr. Obama’s memoir. Both presidential campaigns have said they believe the American people are focused on the country’s struggling economic fortunes."
http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/06/19...
Of course.
So maybe the woman was in Chicago? This is your "OMG OMG OMG the lie!.The Lies OMG OMG" moment?

Now you claim Obama lied about trying harder drugs? So, your source check with every friend? Or do you think maybe only a few knew.

Ann Dunham was covered.Obama never said she wasn't. I guess you never had to fight with insurance companies to get bills paid because claims were initially denied.

So that is all you had. What a joke.

You are probably unaware of this....

Saul Alinsky commands the Democrats to make it appear as if all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.
To execute this strategy, there can only be two sides. Having the TEA Party existing as a real world fact upsets that strategy.
And that is why you're being indoctrinated to pretend the TEA Party doesn't exist.

Under Carter and stagflation, unemployment went almost into the two digits. Under Reagan, it steadily declined to just above 5%.
When GHW Bush listened to Democrats and raised taxes, employment crept up again to 7%.
Under Clinton's Republican-controlled Congress for six years, unemployment again steadily declined down to 4%.
After 9/11, unemployment rose to almost 6% but steadily declined again after GW Bush lowered taxes to just above 5%.
After Democrats took control of Congress in 2007, unemployment began to rise again until the economic fallout and up to the present day seven years later.

See for yourself.
amazing. 96% unemployment in your world because democrats were in charge.
