    They asked left coast morons who think Benghazi is Indian Food a la carte what they thought of President when our economy is currently on life support.

    It's a testament to their prevailing institutionalized ignorance that Americans are known for the World over.

    Benghazi isn't going away as the WH sent their best liar after what must have been hours of coaching and preparation. His best answer was basically " it was none of our bussiness" where the President was.

    The location of the Commander in Chief was instantly " irrelevent" . Funny that, it was extremely relevent when he watched the Bin-Laden raid go down, and bragged about " giving the go ahead order".


    It's ok, the IRS scandal JUST started, plenty of commitee hearings and corrupt Democrats put under Oath will change it from a " GOP Conspiracy" to a expose on just how corrupt this administration is.

    There are consequences to electing a President because the media told you to so next time take a whole 5 minutes out of your day, enough time to know Obama was a fraud.

    wapo's dan balz this morning: the big loser is activist govt

    Whatever else happens as a result of the multiple controversies that have engulfed the administration, one thing is clear: President Obama has failed to meet one of the most important goals he set out when he was first elected, which was to demonstrate that activist government could also be smart government.

    What has happened since Obama laid down that challenge for his administration? More Americans favor smaller government over bigger government than when he was first elected, according to exit polls from last November. Public confidence in the federal government is as low as it has ever been, according to a Pew Research Center survey released this spring.

    This weekend, four of the government’s most important agencies are beset by political controversy, management breakdowns or both: State (what happened in Benghazi, Libya), Treasury (targeting of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service), Justice (leak-related investigation of the Association Press) and Defense (rising numbers of sexual assaults).

    Add to that the questions about Health and Human Services and its implementation of the Affordable Care Act, and it is little wonder confidence has eroded.

    Obama bears a particular responsibility for failing to do what he said he had to do, which was to convince the public that he could make the part of government that he directly controls — the executive branch — smarter, more effective and more deserving of trust. To do what he wanted to do through government required building greater confidence in government. Long before the current controversies materialized, he had not been able to do that.

    Most controversial has been his health-care initiative. Throughout the long battle to enact and then begin to implement the law, Obama’s White House has been unable to win broad public support for it, even though individual pieces are popular. Obama is still fighting to overcome distrust of government as he proceeds with the most complex change in social welfare policy since the 1960s.

    Now the president is dealing with unexpected problems, each of which threatens to make the trust-in-government deficit even bigger.

    The most corrosive of the controversies is what happened at the IRS, which singled out tea party and other conservative groups for special scrutiny in their applications for tax-exempt status. That Obama knew nothing about it does little to quell concerns that one of the most-feared units in government was operating out of control.

    The multiple failures at the IRS speak of an agency that, at worst, was politically motivated in going after opponents of the president’s agenda and that, at best, showed terrible judgment, lacked vigorous oversight by its managers and misled members of Congress about what was happening.

    There is much about the Justice Department’s leak investigation that isn’t known and may not be known, given that it involves national security issues and classified information. But on its face, the collection of telephone records from the Associated Press appears to be so broad that it cannot easily be explained. Because the president, rightly, cannot interfere, he is left mostly helpless in the face of this controversy.

    The argument over what happened in Benghazi last Sept. 11 is mired in politics and probably will continue to be. Obama sees the investigation led by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, as a politically inspired sideshow. Republicans see the administration’s response as a political coverup designed to protect the president and former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    Putting aside the controversy over what happened to the administration’s original talking points as they evolved amid bureaucratic wrangling, what actually happened in Benghazi was a breakdown in security that reflected badly on the administration. Wherever the congressional investigation leads, the findings of the State Department’s internal investigation, which cited “systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies,” stand as harsh criticism of what happened on Obama’s and Clinton’s watch.

    The full political impact of what is unfolding now may not be clear until closer to the 2014 elections. Obama has been damaged, but how much? Republicans are on the offensive but risk overplaying their hand out of deep dislike for this president. But no matter how the electoral politics turn out, Obama’s goal of creating confidence in bigger government has taken a big hit.

    Gimmesometruth;1061827575]I guess not to you NOW....since I showed she wanted MORE....whereas you tried to say she was against it...so yeah, you want to disregard the FACT THAT YOU WERE COMPLETELY WRONG AND WON'T ACCEPT IT.
    Wrong about what, her claim that unemployment with the passed stimulus wouldn't go about 8%? Wrong about all the predictions made by Obama that haven't come true? What is it about Obama that creates this kind of loyalty? Have you no pride at all? Prof has provided you with the links but you are so brainwashed that you ignore the actual facts to continue allowing Obama to make a fool out of you. No wonder this country is in a mess.

    This makes no sense, what projections did she make that is under discussion? I posted her REVIEW of the ARRA.
    Read the NY Times article and then get back to me. It doesn't do any good to post actual quotes from Romer because you just ignore them just like you ignore the entire Obama economic performance.

    Ooh! A hunting expedition....for YOU. Look into my eye.
    Good thing you are in business for yourself with no employees for you cannot fire yourself for poor performance. You simply have no concept of the private sector and how people are judged based upon performance in the private sector. You wouldn't last two years with the numbers Obama has generated.


    I did read the Krugman article....from JANUARY OF 2009...BEFORE WE KNEW THE EXTENT OF THE AFTERMATH OF THE BUSH RECESSION EFFECTS ON UNEMPLOYMENT.

    Good grief, Ground Hog Day all over again.
    Isn't that amazing, GW Bush did all this by himself with a Democrat controlled Congress that let him do it and the smartest man ever to hold the office was in that Congress allowing him to do it. It is quite shocking that someone so smart in the legislative branch had no idea how bad the economy was when he took over, an economy that came out of recession in June 2009 before the smartest individual ever to hold the office had his shovels arrive for shovel ready jobs.

    Hmmm....I don't think that Obama is hiding a floozy in the Oval office bathroom, Michelle would kill him. But if he takes the path of lying to a Judge about anything, then you have the same thing that you are so ineptly referencing here.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Face it Fenton....America didn't buy it the first 133 times that FauxNews and the Repubs tried to spin this bull **** into gold....you guys shouldn't be too surprised that the 134th time had the same results. Then again....that IS the mantra of the Republican party: Keep trying the same failed things and expect different results.
