It is not that Republicans have previously shied away from bringing “scandal” in to putatively unrelated Obama doings. The existence of a presidential “scandal” can be inferred when the opposition party — and both parties do this — attempts to tie the scandal to anything the president does or does not do. Republicans have previously defined as attempts to distract from the scandal such disparate Obama actions as nominating judges, proposing to reduce student loans, visiting the Jersey Shore, and defending the use of drones. That is to say, basically everything Obama has done since the dawn of the Obama scandal era about seven weeks ago. If the president can give a major speech without either the opposition or the new media accusing him of attempting to distract from the scandal, then the scandal is over.

Do you remember how all-consuming the “Obama scandals” once were? This was a turn of events so dramatic it defined Obama’s entire second term — he was “waylaid by controversies,” or at least “seriously off track,”“beset by scandals,” enduring a “second-term curse,” the prospect of “endless scandals,” Republicans “beginning to write his legislative obituary,” and Washington had “turned on Obama.” A ritualistic media grilling of Jay Carney, featuring the ritualistic comparisons of him to Nixon press secretary Ron Ziegler, sanctified the impression of guilt.

Yep.
People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.
You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.
we just had a military downsizing this week while the president is in africa pushing gay rights.

impeachible, for dereliction of duty!

My post was in response to Shiningazzwipe who said it was a vacation.
Try to keep up.
So either you were too stupid to follow the conversation or you are Shiningazzwipe & a liar.
Both, waxman is a shinningasswipe liar. The funny part is he isn't smart enough to know it. In his fantasy world there is no distinction between truth and lies, just blurt out anything, let others figure out if it's real.

I want to understand this. the poor don't make enough to pay federal incom taxes. the rich pay most of the federal income taxes in this country.

Here's a visual aid for you l.l.w.

poor = 0% federal income taxes
Rich = 71% federal income taxes

Poor people get something called earned income credit, money in addition to what they made, from the government.

Rich people do not get earned income tax credit.

Where does earned income credit come from? Not the poor, they don't pay federal income tax. Maybe they get it from the 71%?

Keep your pants on feminine Democrat male. You can follow the story if you are obsessed with it, but yes, we do indeed have rules of procedure in legislatures.
The rules say a person can speak if no one objets.

Your hero, the bigot, refused to let a man speak solely based on the fact that he was gay.

That's being a bigot.

The bigot used the rules to prevent this man from speaking.

WTF is so difficult that you feel the need to defend this action?

Why are you responding to my conversation with Ortiz?
Obviously, you posted that as "Ortiz", or as the typical old moron you ate, responded to my conversation with Ortiz.
DOH!!!
Explain this, Dumb Dave...
You are an idiot, Dumb Dave.
Just in case you do the typical weasel routine, it's on the internet, moron:

I responded because Ortiz's post was about my post responding to Shininhazzwipe.

In that post, Shiningazzwipe called Obama's Africa trip as a Vacation. It had nothing to do with you.

Do ya get it yet??
