    He affirmed he was not aware of an IG investigation. If he was you would really have something to outrage about. He gave the correct answer, he found out about it when eveyone else did. OMG, if he had known about it before hand the RW blogosphere would have melted down by now.

    Even that's not exactly accurate ... but, regardless, the question was when he found out the IRS was doing what it did ... he answered a question that wasn't asked.
    He chooses words veeeery carefully ... not to assure accuracy but to be evasive.
    The IRS scandal is just one example.
    Why do you think he just didn't say he never had any idea the IRS was targeting Tea Party organizations until he read it in the news? Would have been simple.

    It's natural for the people to surround the wagons around a corrupt President in the beginning. They'll turn on him after there's no one left to throw under the bus.

    But the longer they wait the more damage their will be to the Democrat Party. That will lead to at least 12 years with a Republican in the White House.

    Of course... you're a Kool Aid swilling Lib, and well... ASSUME POSITION LIBERAL!





    It's your time to... dealwithit.
    You DO understand don't you that the "Fast and Furious" you make reference to was a GWB Justice Department program. True....Obama continued it, but you cannot distance yourself from the fact that it was a Bush program.

    When you look at the numbers, good or bad, inbetween, or lop sided etc etc what seems to come through when it comes to obama is a deeply felt sense of a president that is just like you and me, everyday people. Its not an over reach in any sense of the spectrum to come to the conclusion that love is what this administration has for us and it truly wants the best for us. Comforting and supportive seems to come through the polls as well. Amazing to have a president that cares so much for us.

    Are you NUTS?

    The executive branch is suppose to EXECUTE the will of the people, as determined by CONGESS.

    Not execute the WILL of the president. I think Obama never even READ the Constitution!
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    No matter how much you wish otherwise, none of these scandals are really that important. They're still nothing to Watergate, and most of them have very little to do with the president personally. But let's look at this supposed damage to the Democratic party. Hrm... Nope, I'm pretty sure the country as a whole is still pissed about the tax cuts for the rich and two wars putting us into this recession. And then Republicans doing everything in their power to continue the recession so they can use it as ammo to regain power. If the right had goals besides "get more power" and had an agenda that would actually improve the nation for more than a small minority of rich white heterosexual Christian (and some Jewish) men, then maybe it could get somewhere. But it doesn't.
