    Millions Improperly Claimed U.S. Phone Subsidies - WSJ.com

    The U.S. government spent about $2.2 billion last year to provide phones to low-income Americans, but a Wall Street Journal review of the program shows that a large number of those who received the phones haven't proved they are eligible to receive them.


    Some of these Obamaphones were even being used by drug dealers because they couldn't be traced. We've went over this before last month. The Reagan whining is a pathetic and laughable false premise. It's not Reagan's fault Obama expanded the program so ridiculously without any proper oversight, but then again it's just par for the course. To emotional libs, every Obama failure is someone else's fault.

Even if I assume you're correct when you equate Romney and Obama as being two sides of the same coin, just the two areas mentioned above would be strong determinates in a Romney Presidency over a reelection of Obama.
    CJ, it depends on which Romney you are talking about. The one who came up with Romney care, pretty socially liberal and worked with Democrats to get things done or the one after he did his 180 degree turn in order to run for president on the Republican ticket. The thing with Romney, even among his own party members, they weren't sure which one they would get. So working with Democrats is pretty irrelevant after Romney did his 180.

    On the economy, who knows. He never really laid anything out as to a plan. In fact he never laid out a vision for the next 4 years to give the voters a reason to vote for him. You the economy is in such and such a state under Obama, it would have been better under Romney. But Romney never said what he would to to compare the two with. I pointed a lot of this out when we were on politico.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    bret baier just interviewed james rosen, special report...

    we're all waiting for obama's announcement 6 pm eastern, he's 19 minutes late right now

    did you know the white house surrendered the talking points email chain today, 94 pages of correspondence...

    rosen just read to us (i'm paraphrasing):

    at 7:16 and 7:23 pm on the friday nite before susan-rice-sunday, victoria nuland emailed the need to "soften" language about "perpetrators"

    such language "could come back to us at the podium"

    that's very bad---changing the truth for political reasons

    after a conversation with [name redacted], i have serious concerns

    at 11:17 the next morning, ben rhodes and tommy vietor were more active

    the language, "islamic extremists with ties to al qaeda" was still part of the talking points at that time

    that afternoon, an email from cia: "state dept had major reservations and we revised with their concerns in mind"

    the white house has adamantly insisted the opposite

    The original intentions were morally right. It was during the Clinton administration when the abuse began and was expanded so those druggies in the inner cities could have a free phone so they would have more money to spend on crack and that 40 ouncer.

    Before Obama is forced to resign or is impeached and convicted, I wonder if we'll see free Obama broadband internet service. And I'm sure we'll soon see Obama lap tops and Obama smart phones.
    Then you’re admitting that my scenario was right when I stated that the germ for the Obamaphone was planted by the gipper in 1984? Thanks.

    Is that breaking
    yes, it broke, the only source (that's why it took me 15:00 to post, i tried to find a usable link) is...

    breitbart

    LOL!

    i could try again

    Obama: Acting IRS chief Steven Miller resigns - Jennifer Epstein - POLITICO.com

    thanks

    politico, in addition, has unearthed a kernel:

    The IRS has begun defending some of its senior leadership, releasing a statement Wednesday saying that its chief counsel, William Wilkins, was not among those who participated in a meeting of agency employees to discuss the targeting of conservative groups. The inspector general’s report suggested that a “chief counsel” had been at an Aug. 4, 2011, meeting on the issue, but the IRS said that the lawyers who attended were actually “several layers below Wilkins.”
    and the journolisters, in addition, aren't giving this most corrupt president since nixon much of a break

    Though a draft of the report had been floating around Washington for days, Obama waited until the official release on Tuesday night to offer an unqualified condemnation, calling the agency’s behavior “intolerable and inexcusable.” In remarks at a press conference on Monday, Obama had qualified his assessment with the conditional “if” news reports on the findings were true. White House press secretary Jay Carney offered the same skepticism in his comments earlier this week.
    he looked awful---furious, petulant, at times on the verge of tears

    but he's mad at the wrong people and for all the wrong reasons

    and it shows

    it really does look like he's lost the beltway, lost the press

    usatoday: irs gives libs a pass

    IRS gave liberals a pass; Tea Party groups put on hold

    the most populist paper on the planet scoops: ALL tea party apps were PUT ON HOLD---not delayed, but PUT ON HOLD---for 27 months by this CRIMINAL irs

    the talking points, tho, those 94 pages of emails---i think i can tell you, there's an awful lot of smoke coming out of em

    stay tuned

    Yeah, I just saw the ones on Nuland and Benghazi and what she said. Especially some comment about going to the podium. I figured she is going to take the Hit on the Emails.

    Nope, it wasn't Reagan's idea. Reagan was known for compromising with the opposition, that's sign of good leadership. Unless it had any thing to do with national defense and winning the Cold War then there was no compromising. America first.

    Not only are you failing desperately to make the connection, you're also laughably defending an out of control Government Program that has grown in size by 1500 times since Obama took office. This is why people like you have no credibility. You always make the case that Government Programs such as these are needed to help the poor and disabled, yet never criticize or want to reign in these programs when they go laughably over budget, have no oversight, and get out of control.

    Your Obama worship is overriding your ability to use logic and reason. Par for the course.
