  2. Obama sure has a lot to whine about, he creates his own mess’s and then he blames Bush and every other republican for his ineptness.
    Everything happens to him BECAUSE of his own doing and all he does is complain about it, and then Blame Bush etc.... He’s only interested in himself and doesńt care what happens to America or us Americans.
    What a poor excuse for a leader he is and always has been.. And the whacko Progressives keep on defending him shouting that every scandal is a Right-wing conspiracy theory! They are as wacked out as he is! And the funny thing is that if you dare to argue about his (Obama’s) incompetence they get their panties in a wad and attack like sharks in a feeding frenzy..these wacko birds are sick.
    After six and a half years of the Barack Hussein Obama presidency who would have thought that the Biggest Threat to the USA would be their OWN President!
    Lets be honest with each other, all presidencies have a scandal or two, usually relatively minor in the grand scheme of things. Watergate was considered minor initially and took two years to materialize into the scandal that forced Nixon to resign, and he did so like a Gentleman, and for the good of the country. .. Obama, however, has generated directly and indirectly enough scandals for 10 or more presidencies!
    The worst of the latest has been the revelation of how the Internal Revenue Service was politicized to attack organizations that were deemed to be affiliated with the Tea Party movement. Donators to Israel and many of the other Right Wing patriotic causes. The “loss” of Lois Lerner's emails and others smells badly of the destruction of evidence Congress has demanded. The one element of the government that virtually all Americans interact with is the IRS.
    BUT however Benghazi has to be the biggest scandal in Obama and his piss-poor administration’s presidency in which a U.S. ambassador died along with three others, and that remains an unresolved scandal as much for the lies about a video as its cause as for the tragedy of the abandonment of those killed. Also the latest on where he release of five of the most dangerous leaders of the Taliban from Guantanamo without letting Congress know has piled on the previous scandals to a point where serious concerns about both Obama’s judgment.
    Needless to say that if ANY Republican President had done or cause even 10% of the BS that Obama has the nation would be demanding his head on a platter.
    And the sad thing is that Comrade Obama is just getting warmed up we ain't seen nothing yet, we still have 2 and a half years to go.

  4. Conservatives are lying again...

    Sonasoft had nothing to do with the missing emails.

    The sandwich story is ONLY being told by a far right French rag. I don't believe it.

    The states are the ones responsible for auditing private insurance who handle Medicaid, proving once again, the private sector should not be trusted with our health insurance.

    The deficit is down a trillion dollars! Good for Obama!

    There does not have to be any healthcare "crisis" brought on by this odd wave of young immigrants. They're YOUNG.

  5. I picked #4, as it is indicative of a much larger fiscal problem, that has been festering for a long time and exacerbated by the current Fraud-In-Chief. If you include unfunded liabilities our National Debt is >$142,000,000,000,000 and growing! This is beyond serious! Oh, what am I saying. I'll bet that Jersey McJones has the answer.

    2. From Zero Hedge:

      The greatest problem we have is misinformation. People simply do not comprehend why and how the economic policies of the post-war era are imploding. This whole agenda of socialism has sold a Utopian idea that the State is there for the people yet it is run by lawyers following their own self-interest. The pensions created for those in government drive the cost of government up exponentially with time. The political forces blame the rich and this merely creates a class warfare with no resolution for the future. Even confiscating all the wealth of the so-called rich will not sustain the system. Consequently, we just have to crash and burn and start all over again.

      [...]

      The solutions from politics will always be the same – grab more power. We are in a downward spiral of liberty and how far we go down this path to the future will be determined by the people and if they at least wise up and see this is not class warfare, it is the people against government. This is why I say career politicians are dangerous for they can be bought way too easily as Clinton was to open the flood gates for the bankers.

      This is not going to end pretty. The question is when does society wake up? Just how high will this price be that we have to pay? They will blame the rich and the idiots will cheer – get them. What will happen when there is no more wealth to hunt? We end up with a communist state by default – no wealth, just career politicians who blame everyone but themselves....

    1. They're using silly, simpleminded extrapolations. I don't think yo understand the issue. You're just mentally allergic to the word "debt." By the way, we could reduce that debt tremendously if we just paid our bills instead of borrowing. Something you cons are also mentally allergic to - being responsible.

    2. That was directed at Jersey, Jon, not you. Sorry!

      Reportedly Obama spent MORE in his first three ears in office than ALL the other PRESIDENTS -- COMBINED! If you could help verify that, I'd be much obliged. The left will just say it's a right wing canard, of course, but who could possibly believe THEM?

    4. Jersey, you borrow money because, ready for it? You don't have enough enough on hand to get what you need, want, or to pay the bills.

      Irresponsibility is why we are where we are at with respect to the national debt, not to be confused with deficit. Although they are linked.

      I'm more concerned over the cost to service our debt. That is the number we NEED to see reduced at an accelerated pace every year if we are to ever get our fiscal affairs on solid footing.

      That being said, both political parties bear SOME responsibility. However, if one looks at the data going back to Jimmy Carter it is clear republicans hold the largest share of the responsibility for our fiscal irresponsibility/insanity.

    5. RN,
      I have never made any excuses for the fiscal irresponsibility of the GOP -- nor will I.

      The point now is this: What is the Obama administration doing? Obama "owns" this economy and foreign-affairs mess; he's been in office since January 2009.

  10. If the contract with Sonasoft was indeed canceled, does Sonasoft still have archived copies of emails up through the date of termination of the contract?

    4. The article says "The proportion of respondents who believe the IRS's claim to have destroyed the emails accidentally: 12%. That's congressional-approval-rating territory. Seventy-six percent disbelieve the IRS story, and the remaining 12% say they're "unsure." Asked whether Congress should continue to investigate, the ayes had it, 74% to 21%."

      and

      " what the Fox survey shows is a broad public distrust of the IRS and, by implication, of the president."

      and

      "The Fox poll is a stunning vote of no confidence not just in the Obama administration but in the government itself."

      The article doesn't support some of the contentions of Mr. Jersey McJones.

  11. News Flash:

    A close adviser to Hillary Clinton agrees with Republicans that it’s time for an independent prosecutor to investigate alleged IRS targeting of conservative groups and missing e-mails.

    Lanny Davis — who was a counselor to President Bill Clinton — said the IRS needs intense scrutiny from an outside investigator.

    “There’s no Democrat that I know of that wouldn’t be asking a Republican administration to conduct an independent investigation” if Republicans were in charge, Davis said Friday....

  19. How is it possible for Americans to get new jobs when illegal immigrants are taking them? Illegal aliens come to the United States. to take jobs that employers offer these Illegal aliens for wages that are lower than they would have to pay to hire U.S. workers. Yes, we all know that, But on the other hand, the Democrats say that they are for immigration & the American poor at the same time! How can they have it both ways?

    The only group of people that are gaining net new jobs is the legal/illegal immigrants....
    It's called brainwashing or get beat down with how you, (don't care about people, you're not compassionate etc) and the Democrat party does an outstanding job with it on their base of voters

    The people have to realize this, but the deadhead liberals won’t ever get it through their thick brainwashed skulls.
    How is adding millions more people (lawbreakers, illegal immigrants) with this economy and job market as it stands today going to HELP any of you legal citizens in this country?

    And don’t tell me that same old line that Mexicans take jobs that Americans won’t take!!
    Does anyone really think that out of almost 60 million working-age Americans who are not working, and who can’t find work .....that there aren't ANY people who want those jobs....? If you really think that way, they I have a Bridge to sell you in Brooklyn! If you really believe that then you're an idiot. It’s just Obama’s propaganda as well as an old liberal LIE, and the progressive’s daily garbage. Because Obama just don’t care about us American’s!!! And another great example of Socialism! You may think that I'm wearing a tin hat, bur think what you may. The proof is right here before your very eyes.... All you have to do is open those blind eyes and you’‘ll see what the King has in store for us. Look ar who here thinks differently, Only the member of the lunatic fringe You know it and I know it. Read the crap that those members of the lunatic fringe, write on those Progressive sites. It’s pure LUNACY. Trying to reason with those lunatics who worship Obama, is like talking to the wall. If Obama’s plan is for America to be a third world nation than he’s right on course! .

  20. The uncomfortable truth is that while we give lip service to equality for black American men, many of them remain enslaved within the Entitlement Plantations provided by the government. Just enough to eat and a roof over the head. Not much has changed, has it? They will remain on the Entitlement Plantations, with oversight by their federal masters until we open up the job market for them. The market for unskilled workers, is flooded with illegal immigrant labor.

    The system works to provide more for non-citizens than citizens at this point. This is beyond inequality. It is institutionalized tyranny.

  21. According to a new Pew poll, and this is stunning, 44 percent of all respondents said they didn’t often feel proud to be American. Only 28 percent said that America was the greatest nation on earth.

    Pew divided their sample into different categories across the left-right political spectrum. When asked if respondents “often feel proud to be American,” a majority of strong liberals, 60 percent, said no. The only group that solidly agreed with the statement was conservatives, ranging from 72 percent to 81 percent. About half of the respondents in the middle of the spectrum – essentially libertarians to socially conservative fiscal liberals – said they were proud to be American.research poll finds 60% of libs aren't proud to be Americans
    One week before Independence Day, not surprisingly, liberals are not proud Americans

    More proof of the INSANITY OF THE LEFT

    As for me, I feel lucky to be an American, especially given the places I could've been born instead. But pride is something reserved for things I've earned and I didn't earn my citizenship - it was given to me because I was fortunate enough to be born on American soil.
    The lefties think that they are such hip, cool, and sophisticated patriots, Patriotism to them is REMAKING America into a Socialist-utopia . . . like they REALLY know what's what over there in these Socialist countries....

    Well, lefties, if that’s, how you feel and think, get your passport ready, hop a jet to Europe and see first-hand the grand European-style-mess: England, being inundated with sleeper-terrorists cells from every hell-hole in the Middle East, and masses of 'regular' folks who have been welcomed by the magnanimous Brits, only to see millions of 'em go on BENEFITS, which now is starting to sink the island. If someone says they are NOT proud to be an American, (like someone I can remember saying the day Obama was elected) because of “racism” or some other BS reason that the liberal, progressive, socialist Leftist, whatever you want to call them says, then GET THE HELL OUT, and DON’T COME BACK.
