Gee, it seems that Obama's Chief of Staff knows things and keeps them secret from the President. Sure.... I believe that... don't you?

Impeach Obama, the Liar-in-Chief.

There is too much speculation and false allegations going on as people on the right seem to want there to be a scandal to fit their narrative of this Administration. It looks to me that Chief of Staff Denis McDonough decision to insulate the President from this information and impending IG report is exactly what is giving the President the ability to blunt the Republican’s attacks against him as the American people continue to give him high marks on his approval rating.
There is no scandal here whatsoever, but that won’t stop those who want to fight at every turn from trying to create one.

Obama says he didn't know about Benghazi until later, he didn't know about DOJ wire tapping or the IRS targeting groups that disagreed with his policies, he learned about them from the news. Seems rather odd doesn't it.

This is the most crooked, corrupt, and racist administration ever

Prior to the swearing in of any appointee, Barrack Hussein Obama makes them pledge their allegiance to islam.

This administration removes critcs and many of the opposition from among the living.

Hussein Obama's equals are Iran's Ahmadinijad and Adolf Hitler.
But comparing Hussein to Hitler is an insult to the latter.
Hitler was an evil genius.
Hussein Obama is just plain evil.

The IRS was within their rights to investigate teabagger groups out to destroy the American way of life! They should intensify the investigations into right wing extremist organizations and arrests should be made!

I believe the White House not only knew about the IRS report, but was actually behind it.

They should only audit Republicans. Progressive democrats and union members should be exempt. Slap them with some huge fines and take a few thousand of their homes. That will show them who's really running the country and they better get used to it.

Hmmm, same countdown to layoffs, Americans wallets getting thiner, full time employees moved to part time, massive debt added to the deficit, the ability to reach into our lives, into our pocketbooks, and our doctors’ offices, and it will change the way medical decisions are made —putting government, not doctors, ultimately in charge! And most of all, right after that, pissing off millions of Americans to vote for anyone that will get rid of it.

Remeber the gun control law nobama/biden lost a few months ago!! What a look, biden looked like Walter of Jeff Dunham. Hilarious. Dem congressmen in rural areas threatend by their voters so they voted against it.....hahaha

Isn't that a coincidence??? Hahahahahaha
