    So it led nowhere. Alright.

    Benghazi has now gone to special committee due to the efforts outside Congress by Judicial Watch through court filings were allowed to obtain the documents not heavily redacted that this administration provided Congress and other documents that this administration failed to turn over.
    Still nowhere.

    IRS scandal is in full swing, The smoking gun in the IRS targeting scandal could be found in the Senate, one advocacy group says, pointing out a correspondence it believes pressured the tax agency to impose extra scrutiny on conservative groups as part of a Democratic election strategy in 2010 and 2012. Several senators could be in ethics trouble Over the IRS Scandal................The Center for Competitive Politics, which opposes campaign finance restrictions and other limits on political speech, filed a complaint with the Senate Select Committee on Ethics against nine Democratic senators, most notably Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin of Illinois and Carl Levin of Michigan, for repeated lobbying of the IRS to probe conservative groups. It also specifically cites Charles Schumer of New York, who was the lead author of letters to the IRS signed by Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Tom Udall of New Mexico, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Al Franken of Minnesota, Michael Bennet of Colorado and Jeff Merkley of Oregon.
    Still... nowhere?

    Unfortunately another scandal isn't what the Americans need but the Democrats keep providing them as in the VA. While this recent Bergdahl scandal, the new VA scandal is getting stronger by the day with more and more reports of mismanagement.
    The VA "scandal" that has been known for... well... 2 decades? Lol. Again, nowhere.

    You see the wheels of justice grind slowly.
    Spoken like somebody who doesn't actually know anything about the American justice system.

    And none of them are over as some would hope. The fat lady is far from singing in any of them. And if the Senate goes to Republicans this year in mid-terms more co-operation in getting to the truth in any of them will become a reality as the Democrat Senate has played a big role in thwarting such.
    All that to say you've got... nothing? Look, clock is ticking and Obama has about 2 years left as president. It's been 6 years - they got Clinton on a blowjob after a year - and you can't even get Obama on the hook for anything after 6? Lolz

    Actually, they really didn't but here, I'll ask you this: Has the media failed to report on the IRS "scandal", the Benghazi "scandal", Fast & Furious "scandal", the IRS scandal and the VA "scandal"? Well, according to you yes - but I bet if I typed up all those on even a ****ty search site like Bing, I'd get THOUSANDS of hits, hundreds of videos and dozens of reports. Where are the convictions after 6 years with all the media's reporting? Nowhere.

    .....tell you what. You can't sell what you don't own and never to a player.
    First,

    You carry on as if there are no circumstances that warrant investigating wrongdoing.

    Fast and Furious investigation proved the administration lied and tried to cover up wrongdoing. It's disturbing when the Atty General is found guilty of criminal contempt and the administration did nothing. It is disturbing when the Fast and Furious story broke, that Obama claimed he learned about it in the newspaper! It is disturbing when this administration willfully engaged in a "lying campaign" over Benghazi to the point of lying to the families who lost loved ones for political cover. It took Judicial Watch to obtain documents that this White House heavily redacted or didn't turn over at all to discover once again this administration at best lied and at worst was very incompetent in dealing with Benghazi. It is disturbing when an administration increased VA funding by almost 60% yet allowed mismanagement of those funds to go unchecked to the point veterans are dying because of lack of healthcare. It is disturbing that the president and members of his administration came before the American people making the claim there wasn't a "smidgen" of proof of wrong doing involving the IRS. But it took Judicial Watch having to go to court to get the documents that prove otherwise and now several Democrat senators are being investigated. And a Democrat appointee Lois Lerner, had to take the fifth multiple times before Congress for fear of incriminating herself. How stupid do you think the American people are that they can't discern a rat when they see one? It is disturbing that this president stood before the American people and lied numerous times when he told them they could keep their healthcare provider and their doctor under Obamacare when every damn Democrat member of Congress knew damn well that wasn't the case and congressional records verifies that to be so because of numerous debates on that very issue were argued in both houses of Congress. It is very disturbing that this president and members of his administration felt they had the right to violate the law in releasing GITMO detainees without informing Congress. There is bi-partisan agreement in Congress that Obama broke the law. Law experts Toobin and Dershowitz agree. While you contend these scandals are going "nowhere", when the Senate loses its Democrat majority, the stalling tactics will cease and this administration will lose its cover.

    First,



    Do you understand what oceanfront property in Iowa means now?


    Yes they did.....and after the story broke. If you can't see all that took place due to their reporting and the pressure that was put on. Then you definitely are lacking with any insight at all.

    No they haven't failed to report.....that being said. They didn't do their damn best effort to report. But they did report.....which is how some of the stuff about each of those Scandals you bring up came out.....oh and is still coming out. Due to what they call Classified information.....that gets vetted and becomes unclassified. Another point you forgot about while trying to show some sort of you Puffed game. Oh and BO has made some very minded consequence type calls for a couple.

    Now while I am sure you can search Bing or google.....you just never really do a good job. Which is why you can't read between the lines and don't know anything about who is who and when they speak up in politics. Nor who is saying what.

    Oh and your cute little map Showing Iowa means nothing.....when you stand before a player, one that would just take anything you have at will. So you might as well just give up the keys to your so called Beach front property.

    Now do you understand why you can never play with a player. Tell you what.....maybe you can go read about what it IS- actually like.


    NEXT!!!!!

    Can someone call Dick and let him know fast forward to June 4th 2014.

    No ... it's looking more and more that this whole affair is a Gitmo Gambit.

    So anyone who wants to call Obama incompetent should think again ... looks like this was a clever way to begin to close Gitmo by an ideologue who at his core doesn't much give a damn what anyone thinks as long as the result is what he wants.

    Thank You, here is the latest CNN poll itself, not just the article that I have. It is 29 may through June 1,

    http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2014/im...l.obama.va.pdf

    there is a lot more information in that poll than this, but it spells out how Americans feels about these issues as of 1 June. Apparently there is another CNN poll out, but jut the article has been released, not the poll itself.

    2. Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling: (RANDOM ORDER)


    …………………………………………….. Approve Disapprove No opinion

    Terrorism………………………………….... 49%.......... 49%..... 2%

    Environmental policy…………………… 49%.......... 45%..... 7%

    The situation in Afghanistan………… 42%............ 56%.... 2%

    Foreign affairs…………………………….… 40%............. 57%... 3%

    Helping the middle clas………………… 40%............. 58%.... 2%

    The economy………………………………… 38%.............. 61%.. 1%

    The situation in Ukraine………………… 38%............. 53%...... 9%

    The situation in Veterans’ Affairs hospitals
    and medical facilities…………………….. 37%................ 58%... 6%

    Health care policy…………………………. 36%............... 63%.... 1%

    Illegal immigration…………………………. 35%.............. 61%..... 5%

    Gun policy……………………..……………… 33%................ 64%.... 4%

    The federal budget deficit……………… 31%................ 67%.... 3%
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
