Slanderous opinion? A respected liberal professor and constitutional attorney, Jonathan Turley, of George Washington University Law School has stated publicly and on numerous occasions that Obama has far outdone Nixon in overstepping his Constitutional boundaries as president.
His words: "The Framers would be horrified at Obama’s abuse of power."
Slanderous? Or just another fact you don't want to hear?

Emails Reveal Lois Lerner's 'Secret Research Project'

The Internal Revenue Service obtained donor lists from nonprofit political groups for a "secret research project" conducted by the agency's former head, Lois Lerner, and other officials involved in the targeting scandal.

Newly obtained documents also reveal that 75 percent of the groups from which the lists were solicited were conservative, while just 5 percent were liberal. The watchdog group, Judicial Watch, obtained the emails and documents as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

"Again, Judicial Watch has uncovered more shocking emails from the IRS, forced out by a lawsuit and a federal court," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a release. "Now we learn the stunning news that Obama's IRS had a 'secret research program' using illicitly-obtained confidential donor lists of conservative and Tea Party organizations that opposed President Obama's agenda or reelection."

Edwards had been charged with 6 counts of violating campaign finance laws, a result of funneling donors' money into a sloppy effort to maintain and hide his pregnant mistress, Rielle Hunter.
The jury found him guilty of only one charge - "The Bunny Money" charge. The wealthy heiress, Rachel "Bunny" Mellon, had smuggled money in boxes of chocolates to Edwards in 2008 so that he would be able to have all the expensive haircuts he wanted.
Court reporters described the courtroom as a carnival atmosphere in part due to the antics of 4 alternate jurors who arrived each morning in color-coordinated outfits. One appeared to flirt openly with Edwards.
He could have gone to prison for 30 years which, apparently, would have been an extraordinary penalty for violating laws that are variously subverted or ignored.
Guess when a Republican accepts gifts for promoting a health product instead of having a child from an affair and accepting gifts from the mistress, that penalty isn't so extraordinary an those laws aren't so subverted or ignored.
Good thing you're on the corrupt side of the fence so you can defend it until the cows come home. It won't change the double standard or the hypocrisy.
Charlie Rangel should have been put in jail years ago.

Charles Rangel, longtime Democratic Congressman from Harlem, is the poster-child for the way power corrupts. Rangel failed to pay taxes on a Dominican Republic villa for 17 years and, evidence before the U.S. Congressional Ethics Panel indicates, lied in claiming he was unaware of his own tax evasion.

Rangel defrauded taxpayers by misappropriating government property and staff time for the sole purpose of raising money to glorify himself and have a Charles B. Rangel building constructed at a local college. In seeking to raise money for this vanity project, Rangel pushed through Congress a loophole that cost taxpayers hundreds of million of dollars in lost tax revenue and enriched a company he was sucking up to for funds.

Rangel deprived his own low-income constituents of affordable housing by accepting four rent-stabilized apartments for his own use. He failed to fess up too hundreds of thousands of dollars in income he was legally obligated to disclose.

All he got was a slap on the wrist from Congressional colleagues, which seemed tantamount to a free-pass for a breach of public trust, but this of course is the public that again re-elected this crook. Of course he shed a few tears in public too but none of the mopes on Topix cared about Charlie's crime or that he didn't do time. No one had to worry about who combed Charlies hair in prison.

Look old obsessed one, I couldn't care less about proving anything to an idiot like you. The vast majority of 20 year veterans retire as either a First Sergeant or Master Sergeant. You are as dumb as Surprize when it comes to the military. Now get back to your other obsession and that is posting stupid.
you are now saying you retired as enlisted?

I met a lot of older guys in RVN serving in various noncombat capacities who had re-upped for the travel and the action.
And of course RMK-BRJ was full of retired military guys who were in it for the $$$.

Too bad president Dumbya did listen to President George H.W. Bush who said that if we took out Saddam, Iraq would turn into another Vietnam and we could be there 10 years, the outcome would still be the same, a no win civil war between Iraqi Sunni, shia and Kurds. Removing saddam would destabilize the Middle East, no matter how long we stayed. Its an unwinnable situation.
If President Dumbo was so right in 2007, why did he sign the SOF agreement in 2008 that had all U.S. combat troops out by 2011??

Big efficient gubbymint to the rescue!

'A review of public records in 28 states uncovered widespread cheating by construction companies that listed workers as contractors instead of employees in order to beat competitors and cut costs. The federal government, while cracking down on the practice in private industry, let it happen in stimulus projects in the rush to pump money into the economy at a time of crisis.'

Yes, it did get ugly when we faced an unexpected resurgent force and al Qaeda who didn't give up and go home after Saddam was removed from power and his regime destroyed.
But war is ugly. Good thing Bush ordered the surge and left Obama with a stabilized Iraq, right?
If Italy took its purse and went home when things got tough just one year before it was over, it's more of an embarrassment to them. The threat was still there by terrorists who don't carry a purse.
But Italy was all in when they, too, believed Saddam was a threat at the beginning, weren't they? Just like Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. And 109 other Democrats.
The Bush administration lied to everyone in sight__it seems that everyone on earth except you and your overnight topix butt pals comprehends that.

Bush left Obama with two unnecessary and unfinished wars along with the shakiest economy since the great depression.

You're a moron

'The fraction of families that owned a privately held business fell 1.6 percentage points
between 2010 and 2013, to 11.7 percent (figure A). This level is the lowest ever recorded in the Survey of Consumer Finances, dating back to the 1989 survey.'

You apparently have a hard time discerning fact from opinion. But don't worry. I'm always here to help. See...what you just responded to was both fact and opinion. My opinion was that Edwards got off easy for much more egregious charges than McDonnell. What I said about Obama was fact backed up by a liberal constitutional law professor.
So which one confused you?

Oops my bad, she was undergoing upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy, which by the way doesn't require any cutting.
of course a 81 year old is never known to have a heart attack right?
the danger is the anesthesia, more than the procedure itself.....

better to perform such procedures in hospital outpatient surgical centers, rather than in doctor's offices.....particularly with older patients......

just a matter of money.....
