Can the Obama people get any slimier? They are corruption personified. LBJ was a scoundrel, played all the angles, but these Obama people have him beat hands down. Every day there is a new story about how slimey they were before the 2012 election.

As if this is the first Administration to do this… but you silly right-wingers go ahead and get worked into a lather over this one also; start calling for impeachment hearings, LOL!

It was a brilliant move, plus WE WON… those who don’t like it can get the Hell out of my country or STFU… I say they can do both.

Excuse after excuse after excuse. Your nation died years ago. A financial meltdown will show you what we have become real quickly. America survived the last one as we were a rising nation and the people although flawed, had principles. Not anymore. America is going down, and it is going down hard. So enjoy your time while it lasts.

Only teabaggers.

I can guarantee all lying and corruption will end with the NEXT president takes to the campaign trail.

There are many who are corrupted in Washington. He hit that city running as he was corrupted way before. His history is playing games with the rules of elections. He got into politics that way. He stole the Progressive nomination from Hillary in a match between two corrupted vile and contemptible organisms that need DNA tests to prove they are human. The power of bullchitt trumps the power of good deeds with voters over and over.

BENGHAZI, Libya — Every week, about a dozen Syrians arrive at Benghazi’s airport for what’s described as insurgent training. When they fly out, they’re carrying fake Libyan passports, according to three officials familiar with the comings and goings of foreigners at the airport.

The accounts of the officials, who asked to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the topic, are more evidence that this city in Libya has become a regional hub for Islamist extremists seeking to hone their combat skills.

Fighters from Tunisia and Algeria also are thought to be training here, driving across Libya’s borders to reach Benghazi, the birthplace of the uprising that, with NATO’s help, toppled Moammar Gadhafi two years ago. But the Syrians’ routine arrival and departure by air indicates that the training process is better organized and financed than had been realized.

That is how the progressives play it 24/7. You catch them in lies and you don't have the courage to speak out because the almighty agenda rules the day. Your utopia will not endure as our foundation is breaking apart as it must to achieve your beliefs.

Obama remembers Sandy Hook victims, calls for tougher gun laws........but still won't meet with the parents and survivors of Benghazi so he can try to explain where he was for the 9 hours he was missing.
Photo Op 3809 of his presidency.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who has long asserted that the Obama administration is trying to keep the survivors away from Congress, told Fox News last week that he has been able to contact some of them and heard a “chilling” story.

“They feel afraid to tell it. It’s important they come forward to tell their story. The best evidence of what happened in Benghazi is not a bunch of politicians in Washington trying to cover their political ass, it’s the people who lived through the debacle,” Graham said.“…Some are back, working for the government. Some are still injured. The bottom line is, they feel that they cannot come forward. They’ve been told to be quiet.”

So.......why doesn't the teabagger spill the beans on Obama?

The same reason teabaggers whined about all the "pork" in the hurricane Sandy relief bill but wouldn't name anyone who put the "pork" in the bill?

They just whined for months.

Poor teabagger.

Incorrect.

As usual.

That's the way teabaggers think.

They were FOR the invasion of Iraq, UNTIL Obama got elected.

They were FOR the un"patriot" act, UNTIL Obama was elected.

They were FOR "free" trade, UNTIL Obama was elected.

NOW?

They whine about their OWN legislation.

Poor teabagger.

They whine

The sky fell. Its just enforced sporadically. You want proof. The guns are being purchased in record numbers. Yeah, you are a child of Saul. Who is a child of Satan. Religious or secular it makes no difference. Its good and evil . With all of the problems even with good, where evil rules is brutal. Whether in the inner city perpetual poverty game or someone with the AIDS disease screaming for help. And what makes Satan laugh even more is that others have to pay for it. And many of them lean towards good. Saul Alinsky lives!....
