Meanwhile, Obama shot a 64 on the back nine, which he recorded in his smart phone and emailed to Michelle, whose computer was also infected by the healthcare.gov virus, and was inadvertently given the records of a 64 year old woman from Toledo, who happened to be the aunt of the white house aid, who told her nephew of the strange call she'd received from the first lady. Splurting his tabouleh over keyboard, an aid thought he was choking and started administering the Heimlich maneuver, which earned him a jab in the face, which initiated an investigation....

    Obama fires a guy for telling the truth but doesn't fire for pleading the fifth or lying to a congressional committee. What's wrong with that picture? LOL. Fine mess we are in.

    Ignorant racist baggers at it again. They won't be happy until they bring your country down and it's all because they can't stomach a black president.

    So, the NSA has been checking out virtually every electronic communication, both inside the US and outside, and this joker gets to tweet for 2 and a half years before he gets caught and fired?

    We should thank God that terrorists are even dumber than Obama administration flunkies.

    And it's not just the blurring between personal and professional. How often these days do folks share "private" pics only to have them become "revenge porn"? How often do people, including kids, perform in front of their web cams? Why don't they understand that this presupposes an AUDIENCE?!

    There's a major difference between what President Lincoln called "the common man" and common sense. In fact, most times, they are mutually exclusive.
