    Nonsense...Do you remember this?....

    "During Campaign 2008, Barack Obama famously told Democrats to take guns to knife fights.

    He told a crowd of supporters to “argue with neighbors; get in their face.” By the way, watch the full clip to hear Barack Obama say he will lower taxes and support the second amendment.

    In 2009, the White House created an email address flag@whitehouse.gov and encouraged people to report their neighbors who might disagree with Obamacare. The DNC admitted the White House was engaged in collecting information on people.

    During August recesses in 2009, the Obama Adminstration told Democrats in Congress to “punch back twice as hard” at Republicans.

    In 2011, the Obama White House set up a ridiculous website called Attack Watch to document and expose those hostile to them."

    snip

    "President Obama did not have to tell the IRS specifically to harass conservative, evangelical, and Jewish groups who might oppose him. His rhetoric on the campaign trail and in the permanent campaign of the White House operations made clear what he wanted. IRS agents not only harassed conservative groups, evangelical groups, and Jewish groups, but also leaked their confidential tax information to left-leaning groups. The National Organization for Marriage and other groups had their donor lists leaked subjecting those donors to harassment. A Romney donor was harassed by the IRS. More than one person has emailed me to say that after they reported themselves to flag@whitehouse.gov they were audited by the IRS — in one case audited several times about just one tax year."

    Will no one rid me of this turbulent group? | RedState

    Then in speaking on the hispanic television station Obama spoke of "punishing our enemies"...



    Seems you are selectively forgetting the divisive rhetoric Obama uses when addressing his political opponents...It is the President that should be setting the tone. And the tone he is setting is one of war with opposing Americans to his agenda. It's dangerous. His playbook is to rile up the base with this tone, then when his policies fail, or he gets busted for doing shady things as President, he and his disingenuous cohorts immediately cry racism, and suffer from acute projectionism when addressing their political opponents...

    Get a new playbook, this one is outed.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    My comment was not partisan based. I am not a member of the GOP.

    Assuming things about others in debate, does not lead to accurate translation. However, doing so bears a lot of logical fallacy fruit.

    Like when he prosecuted those club wielding thugs, who were intimidating voter at a polling house? Oh...wait...he refused to prosecute them.

    I'm frankly astonished that Holder has stayed on this long after how many gaffes and embarrassing situations he's created for the administration, and I'm personally no fan. However I can't believe we would waste time and political capital trying to pass another symbolic censure resolution against Holder and think by upping the ante to impeachment we'll get more credibility. We should be focusing on the ACA and the unique opportunity we have to make some real headway, not clowning around with fodder for email newsletters. This is silly. I'm disappointed.

    A hammer ? That's a bit hyperbolic, don't you think ? Holder should be impeached and politicians should be held to account for breaking the law or stonewalling when the law has been broken.

    If you want them to stop then next time, try taking a whole 3 minutes and vet your Presidential candidate. That way you wouldn't have to be held responsible for the election of a liar who will no doubt drag in corrupt ex-clinton democrats as appointments.

    Like I said I don't see it going anywhere in this climate, but I sure would like to see someone held accountable....This is the most out of control, corrupt administration I can recall, and no one wants to step up for the people against this crap.

    I'm generally an opponent of the Obama administration, but I think it is extreme hyperbole to call it the most 'out of control, corrupt administration'. That being said Holder has done an awful job of representing the Justice Department from A to Z. But I'd prefer my representatives to focus on governing instead of measures designed to generate constituent attention.

    Can any previous president compare with this? 65 Outrageous Lies by President Obama - YouTube

    The President blamed the bureaucracy he set up for the the BHOcare fiasco.nation's health care system is virtually incapable of handling it.

    'It is so bureaucratic and so cumbersome that a whole bunch of it doesn't work or it ends up being way over cost."

    He blamed Fox News. Neil Cavuto Destroys Obama Over Blatant ObamaCare Lies - YouTube

    On the other hand perhaps you can point to some achievements this President made or when he may have said something honest.

    Yes, most of them can. Conflicts with the media, tightly controlling messaging, and misconduct in various federal departments is par for the course. Though my biggest issue with the Obama administration has been it's extremely aggressive approach to the media.
