    Re: Scandal at the White House

    I couldn't make it through the articles because, as much as I want to believe, it comes across as extremely biased, and most likely BS.

    For those asking about the scandal, the most meat I encountered is he showed up late to a meeting, was in too good of a mood laughing and carrying on, and left early. Because the focus of the meeting was the Afghan war, it upset many people in the room.

    With the Liberal-Left, talking about success and achievement is as close as they get to actually doing it. And giving him the prize before he's done anything at all removes from his critics the chance to highlight his failures!

    But I wouldn't mistake his political correctness for failures though. THAT stuff is planned at least.

    I think the number was closer to 98%.

    from Diogenes

    Obama has turned out to be the most grossly incompetent president in the history of the country, and you don't think that's a scandal?
    Uh - NO. that is an opinion of his job performance. It is NOT a scandal.

    If Obama was caught with hookers wearing diapers - that would be a scandal.
    If Obama were caught cheating on his dying wife while she was in a hospital - that would be a scandal.
    If Obama had sex on a satanic altar - that would be a scandal.
    If Obama had a mistress in South America and was using tax dollars to visit her - that would be a scandal.
    If Obama used an airport restroom and had propositioned the man in the stall next to him - that would be a scandal.

    I respectfully suggest you need a good dictionary.

    Re: Scandal at the White House

    This anonymous unsourced interview about one guy's opinion is PROOF, PROOF I SAY, that Obama is incompetent!

    In similar news, I, Deuce, interviewed an anonymous but high level Republican the other day. Here's the transcript:

    How do you feel about abortion?
    Well, as a Christian I am against it, as a rule. However, I do believe in one exception: eating of the fetus. As a Republican, I often enjoy eating fetuses, still warm and straight out of the womb. If the GOP takes both the house and senate next Tuesday, one of the first items on our agenda will be pushing a constitutional amendment to officially declare unborn human fetuses to be a food source.

    ...uh, ok. How about live children?
    Clearly, to be ideologically sound, I would have to support the eating of live children as well. This is America, it's not my place to decide what people can and cannot eat. Our constitutional amendment would probably not specifically cover live children, as this would be tough to get past the senate, but we feel we can get legislation through at a later time.

    Of course. Next, many accuse the Republicans of being "anti-science," due to their common views on evolution or climate change. How would you respond to that?
    We are absolutely anti-science. We don't trust science at all or believe in "evidence." The Republican Party wants America to get back to its roots: thinking with our gut. My gut tells me that the earth is the center of the universe. After all, the stars clearly spin in the sky, but earth isn't moving at all! We feel the American people are smart enough to know when scientists are just making things up to scare or confuse us.

    B...but... sigh. Anyway, the last question is about taxes. If the GOP takes the house and senate, what can we expect from the IRS next year?
    Nothing. Nothing at all. We know tax cuts boost the economy, we saw that from the Bush administration. Bush cut taxes to the lowest they've ever been, and our economy has never been better. It makes sense then that zero taxes would send our economy into overdrive. Everyone will have a job, everyone will be rich, because the government wont take one single penny of their money.

    Wait. How will the government function?
    We Republicans believe in Smaller Government, unlike those Marxists on the other side of the aisle who want the government to grind up every meal into a paste and spoonfeed it to you. We feel that the Free Market will work out the issues in the best interests of the American people. Privatized military, police, fire protection, roads, it will be a Reaganomic paradise. Without the EPA or FDA to interfere with our lives, the Free Market will make sure to keep our food and water safer and cleaner than ever, and even provide it at a lower cost!

    Radium Water.
    What?

    Never mind. Thank you for your time.

    Re: Scandal at the White House

    Probably not a scandal but certainly this is intriguing how Obama is seen and viewed within his own party.

    I couldn't agree more with many of the interviews insights and since I think the guy was and has been over his head since the beginning - it's more affirmation on my part than anything else.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Man you don't research your sources much, do you? Newsflavor is not a reliable source. They pay for articles. Somebody just sold them this article, meaning there is absolutely nobody who can verify anything contained within. The only reason somebody would believe this story is because they choose to, but there's a 99% probability that it's fabricated. Sorry. Check your sources. Don't believe anything just because it reflects your opinion.

    Which in retrospect probably isn't that bad. Remember, once Bush got the hell out of the way and actual experts were put in charge, Iraq got much better. The surge was not Bush's idea. The foundation of the overall surge was tried before Vietnam successfully in the British pacification of the Malayan insurgency. Executives who never have been in combat running the war is bad idea. So Obama not spending lots of time on it isn't something to be getting upset over. Well, if you're not a hackjawed partisan.

    Really. So he's worse then the president who signed a piece of legislation that literally ripped out 11~14% of the US economy, and knew full well that such an occurence was likely to happen?

    Your partisan bias is showing. And it's brighter then the sun.

    Don't know anything about the source, but if it's half true, we should find out all about it before long. Supposedly has something to do with the Justice Dept and Blagojevich...wouldn't surprise me in the least.
