    That's total bull****, because Obama signed the law himself. Two wrongs don't make a right, and he broke the law (that he himself signed). Pure arrogance. Not to mention it was a bad deal and we got ripped off by the Taliban. Five top terrorists for that jerk! "Bitch please!"

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

If they start stall tactics then we will know that the last institution has now been corrupted.
    You can pretty much bet that the soldiers that spoke up will not be standing with the President at a press conference. And I would guess that the 6 dead soldiers will not be mentioned.

    That is reserved for victims like the kids at Sandy Hook during an anti 2nd speech and Parents speaking muslimese when their deserter son is exchanged for terrorists.

    The WH has admitted they broke the law. The claim was "unique and exigent circumstances".

    This is the tip of the iceberg when people find out he was a used pawn of his deranged father and Code Pink..they had the common goal of freeing the monsters at Gitmo

    Wow...this is the most 'concerned' I have yet seen the Obama White House.

    I doubt it will cost the Dems the mid terms or get them impeached...but they seem to realize they might have messed this one up.

    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.
    All that blabbering and still not a single impeachment campaign? I wonder why? Well, arm chair lawyers who seem to "prove" things from the internet and get lawyers to agree with them don't get anywhere really. At the end of the day, what matters are congress' willingness to impeach and the Senate's willingness to convict. If Republicans got a case, bring it. If they don't? Keep complaining and proving things from the internet.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Crocodile tears in public - derisive laughter in private by the ones testing the limits of our gullibility? It sure looks like it. Where have Chambliss and others been all this time - this is nothing new. Better late than never though, I guess.

    Greetings, MMC.

    Hmm, they gave you the bartender merit badge and now you grow the balls to come out and ad hom? Lol. Alright, look - you got something to get Obama on? Send a letter to your representative and get him on the impeachment wagon. I dare ya. I'll be diamonds to German sausages that he sends you a nice polite letter thanking you for your contributions and telling you he'll do all he can. Then, he'll go to congress, make a fuss and **** off on the matter after 6 months. The best part is that Conservatives actually sounded the drums to get him back by any means necessary. Then, like the Judas' they are turned on the administration. Try to impeach Obama on this and just like in 90s when you made Clinton look good over a blowjob. The most you'll get it is a goodhearted action which didn't have the benefits expected.

    Heya DA. Yeah they are concerned.....his numbers are going down and that means less money he can sucker out of his base.

    Plus now he knows the Afghan government is speaking out. Since the New President said he would sign the agreement Karzai wouldn't. Which will allow BO to keep round for another decade. While the entire time.....increasing the risk on our people there.
