    and of course those conservative groups under scrutiny by the IRS.
    A complete and utter non-issue.

    Do you really want to give Obama a pass for what you perceived Bush...
    Let me stop you right there.

    You don't know me or my opinion of President Bush, so don't pull that old card about how "If Bush were in charge while any of this happened I'd so be calling for heads to rolls!!!"

    Do you know the definition of 'scam'?


    "scam (skæm)

    n., v. scammed, scam•ming. n.
    1. a fraudulent scheme; swindle.
    v.t.
    2. to cheat; defraud."

    scammed - definition of scammed by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Seems to me that is a pretty apt description of what the administration is pulling on the American people in multiple areas.

    As for not knowing you, and your ideological bent, I think we have enough of your posting to say confidently that you are a leftist, supporting Obama any way you can think of, regardless of your attempt to hide behind the 'undisclosed' moniker.

    In another thread you questioned what was so wrong with targeting, as you put it, "teabaggers", and in here instead of addressing points made you are attacking the poster himself, a tried and true progressive tactic of deflection. So yeah, I think we know....
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I'm sure your local station regularly airs a lot of **** to fill out the news hour.

    That doesn't make this a real scandal in the slightest.
    What do you call it when the Administration authorized talking points that were an attempt to mislead?

    If you ever want to be taken seriously then you better act more serious. Get actual facts not your opinion or those of others. You explain why what happened in Benghazi, the IRS, and at AP aren't scandals? Your calling for heads to roll although admirable doesn't reflect in your posts here

    If you're referring to Benghazi talking points those were authorized by the CIA.

    David Ignatius: Benghazi intelligence revealed - The Washington Post

    “Talking points” prepared by the CIA on Sept. 15, the same day that Rice taped three television appearances, support her description of the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate as a reaction to Arab anger about an anti-Muslim video prepared in the United States. According to the CIA account, “The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. Consulate and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.”

    False!

    ...State constitutions protecting voting rights for blacks included those of Delaware (1776), [5] Maryland (1776), [6] New Hampshire (1784), [7] and New York (1777). [8] (Constitution signer Rufus King declared that in New York, “a citizen of color was entitled to all the privileges of a citizen. . . . [and] entitled to vote.”) [9] Pennsylvania also extended such rights in her 1776 constitution, [10] as did Massachusetts in her 1780 constitution.[11] In fact, nearly a century later in 1874, US Rep. Robert Brown Elliott (a black Republican from SC) queried: “When did Massachusetts sully her proud record by placing on her statute-book any law which admitted to the ballot the white man and shut out the black man? She has never done it; she will not do it.” [12]

    As a result of these provisions, early American towns such as Baltimore had more blacks than whites voting in elections; [13] and when the proposed US Constitution was placed before citizens in 1787 and 1788, it was ratified by both black and white voters in a number of States. [14]
    This is not to imply that all blacks were allowed to vote; free blacks could vote (except in South Carolina)...

    Leadership is about picking the correct choices and the administration and CIA didn't want to let the terrorists what they knew. Benghazi was primarily a CIA operation.

    A leader takes responsibility not blames someone else. Hillary was a cabinet appointment by the President and thus the CIA activities are the President's responsibility. You have no concept of leadership, do you?

    Guess this isn't Obama's responsibility either?


    Typical liberalism, do as I say not as I do

    Aw, yes, rhetoric always trumps reality in the liberal world. Feigned outrage on the part of Obama doesn't prevent release of actual facts. Wonder what it is about Obama that generates the kind of loyalty liberal supporters have for him?
