Does Barack Obama have any idea what is going on in the government that he is supposedly running? Scandals are erupting all around him, and he supposedly was not aware that any wrongdoing had taken place in any of those instances. It is almost as if every major government agency has gone rogue and Obama has no idea what the heck they are doing. According to Obama, he often doesn't learn what those under his authority are up to until he sits down and turns on the news.
Should we believe him when he claims ignorance over and over again, or is Obama just trying to protect himself? Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent, the revelations that have come out in recent days about the IRS, the seizure of AP phone records and Benghazi should be very alarming to you. Taken together, these scandals paint a picture of a federal government that has become drunk with power, and no matter where you may fall on the political spectrum that is something that nobody should want.

Completely agree. Obama has never known how to lead, he just sits on his high horse and lets it all unfold below him, yet the buck never stops with him. He's got people for that.

BUT....
HE AINT HERE NOW, IS HE?
you must be another one of those "Gee, let's not complain or DO anything about THIS Pres because of what the others got away with." guys.
that's cool... pretty soon there won't be any way or thing to complain about.
King Geo was the ONLY sitting King in 1775. with your atttitude, the Revolution would have NEVER taken place....lol
BTW, I haven't voted for a winning/sitting Pres since Nixon. so, I'm not either a Rep or Bush/Reagan-ite.
this isn't white vs non-white, R vs D or even rich vs poor. it is bigger than those DIVIDERS.
Obama/Bush/Progressives, etc are the Barbarians, the Ideals of America and her Constitution, etc are Rome and We, the People, are the Gates.
either you as an individual are pushing the Gates open or closed.
your attitude is pushing'em OPEN...
Oh yeah, i purely agree about L.B.J!!:)

Obama isn't dividing this nation. Groups like the Tea party were opposed to Obama the minute it was learned he was black.
It became so apparent during the Republican national convention when you looked into the crowd and there practically wasn't a minority in the entire crowd. Obama didn't do that. Republicans want to keep this nation pre-dominantly white and run by white Americans. The Pubs will throw a few bones to low level minority politicians to keep up appearances but the reality is evident. Obama may have brought that reality to the surface but he did not cause it. Imho.
The Tea Party is against liberal ideologies and opposed both Hillary Clinton and Obama. It certainly was not a racial issue. Liberals always want to make this a racial issue when it is NOT!!

As far as the Republican National Convention, the majority of minorities vote liberal so why would you expect them to attend this convention?

did you know that there are actually REAL non-white, non-male and non-elderly Conservatives, TP'ers, Rep's and Libertarians?

just because the economic, moral, Constitutional, Rule of Law, family and nationalistic values of one or more groups do not appeal to some people, even in large numbers, does not make the GROUPS 'exclusionary'. it makes the people that DON'T join or support them EXCLUSIONARY people.

your continuing to inject RACE into the anti-Obama folks is OLD, childish, shows a lack of intelligence (can't read/understand the myrid of OTHER reasons people give) and colors and ruins the rest of your arguments.

that would be like me saying that only blacks or minorities or white-haters SUPPORT Obama.

his supporters go BEYOND mere race or economics or nationality.

it is fundamentals of governing and the the rule of a central/Federal government IN AMERICA that seperate the two camps.

one side simply believes IN Big Govt and one side believes in LIMITED govt.

one side thinks NOTHING of spending TRILLIONS on what they deem legal, honorable, Constitutional programs; the other thinks such monies need NOT be spent or spent elsewhere based on LIMITED government, period.

those against FEDERAL welfare programs are not the same as any one against ANY/ALL welfare programs. they just do not believe such programs are NOT sanctioned by our Constitution and ITS limitations on the powers of the FG.

they are NOT necessarily against them being added (by the Amend process). they are AGAINST the FG/pols acting and legislating like the Const no longer matters.

IF the Founding docs (the Const, the Bill of Rts., etc...) do no longer matter, WE ARE LOST.

it's like lying and LIARS: both are either WRONG 100% of the time or they're NOT.

so far, when posters like you 'excuse' YOUR pols/reps/posters (for WHATEVER reason) for their lying and being LIARS, you then become like them: lying and a LIAR.

it is called guilt by association.

must be why YOU, X, don't post on here supporting our Liar-in-Chief: you don't want to be presumed to be like him.:)

unfortunately (for you), what you do post makes you sound JUST LIKE HIM.lol

"homies?"

"cut your welfare?"

I am no "homie," and I'm not on "welfare."

You seemed to be misinformed or just plain ignorant. That wasn't the part of your post I was referencing however. It was that part about Obama being strung up, impeached or whatever your screwball prediction was.

Who are YOU trying to kid with your pompous and arrogant accusations?

I see the feeding frenzy continues about Obama. It's hilarious watching these bloodthirsty fools, and as if anything they're hoping will happen to Obama will take place. They just love the hate adrenalin pumping through their pea brains.

Yeah. I could probably count them all on one hand. lol

Save you bullchit for some dullard that will listen to it. Minorities know where they are NOT WELCOME unless they want to accept their place.

Higgins(what kind of name is that anyway), of all the people on this forum, you have to be the dullest, most inconsequential bullchitter by far.

Exactly, X.

They think they've really hit the mother lode now. LOL!

I can't believe how foolish and childish these people are.

Obama has to be the most vilified, demonized and personally attacked President ever by these extremist nut cases. They've completely lost perspective. It's all about hatred, nothing more.

This post is to the poster Higgens. Were i alive durring the revolutanry war, my muskett would have been pointed at anything red!! Now that thats out of the way. The problem we face now is not people like me. The real problem is the folks who believe the pablum put forth by the obamas and the bushes and the clintons and the peanut farming carters. The problem lies with anyone who falls for the pure unmitigated bullsh*t put forth by anyone asocieted with any pollitical party. I stand by my former statement whoever tells the best lies gets the votes. Unless ya got a brother in florida who can skew the election in youre favor no matter what the real voter numbers are. All polititions are lying dogs who should be euthinized before they have a chance to poison the American public.. The problem aint folks like me. Its the dreamers and the believers in the American pollitcal process.
It goes much higher than those wieners. It's the really rich elite that pulls their strings George. I'm sure you knew that. Catch a big one.

"Everyone" does NOT think X is a woman. The truth is he's a MAN. You should try it sometime. Your stupid little game of calling him a woman is proof of how childish and insecure you are, Ralff.

But you spread a big enough like for long enough, you can get other like-minded idiots to join you in that lie, even when they know it's a lie.

Try to stay on topic and quit obsessing over me. I hate it when you do this by trying to deflect from the topic in order to garner attention and spread hate. It tells me just who and what you are.
LMAO! Yeah right, POS.

If anyone spreads hate, it's YOU and your "ilk."

Admit it: You're just giddy with delight over the latest news on Obama. I am on topic. Stop deflecting with your obvious mind games. Doesn't work so well when you're mindless. LOL!

It's just plain desperation. It's sad because they don't even give a chit about this country. All they care about it getting rid of the black man in the white house. This is all going to blow up in Republicans faces. They all have tunnel vision.

As a result of the last week, there is an undeniable and quite substantial sea change in how the establishment media is thinking and speaking about Obama.

This morning, the New York Times' public editor Margaret Sullivan wrote about the AP story and the broader War on Whistleblowers, and said that Obama's presidency is "turning out to be the administration of unprecedented secrecy and of unprecedented attacks on a free press."

You are the one who is desperate and it is sad! Don't even attempt to judge me and how I feel about my country. You are the one making this a racial issue. Most conservatives could care less if he were green or pink.

This isn't just a bunch of what you consider as racists conservatives. See the article below from the most liberal newspaper in the nation.
