"No factual basis". LOL<quoted text>How can you expect me to admit to something I don't accept as valid? I reject your arguments. Now, that said, there are issues where I disagree with the President. It's just that you seem never to touch on those. Perhaps that's because those are issues where I believe the President has "caved" unnecessarily to the Republican side of the formula in an effort to find common ground. I suppose it would be difficult for you to find fault on those. I'm certainly not blind, but then again, I'm fairly confident I'm not indoctrinated into believing a bunch of privileged know-it-alls and self-absorbed elites are likely (by majority of same) to make any sacrifices they can find a way NOT to make. I view our Congress as a reflection of that privileged group to whom I object. I still believe that we must operate by majority rule with minority protections, not conversely.
The bottom line is that the President has expressed himself on the issues you raise. You seem to want knee jerk reactions, but what you REALLY want is to embarrass or disgrace your President - even with no factual basis. That's not what most patriotic Americans want. They support our President unless or until FACTS come to light that change their opinions. You're part of a group of malcontents who LOST an election and can't let it go.
1. The IRS singled out and harassed conservative political groups, including during the election year of 2012. The familiar script from Obama and his phalanx of public relations protectors in the White House--that the IRS abuses are not political, and only those who want answers have any political motivations--sounds increasingly obtuse, and pathetic.
2. If a free press is the foundation upon which representative government is built, the Obama administration has allowed the Department of Justice to take a sledgehammer to it. The wholesale investigation of a major news outlet like the Associated Press undermines the intent and spirit of laws meant to promote the discourse necessary for democracy. And this sets a very dangerous precedent.
3. Who made up the story about the YouTube video? Was Hillary Clinton incapable of calling her own employees to find out what happened? Where was President Obama during the 8-hour attack? What is being done to bring the attackers to justice? These are just some of the unknowns that require continued investigation despite the administration's efforts at stonewalling.
You are in complete denial.
