Obama: Don’t Blame Me — Blame Those Phony Scandals

Phony ScandalsThe most disturbing aspect of President Obama’s “phony scandals” broadside is that it wasn’t a slip of the tongue.  If it was, we might cut Mr. Obama some slack.  Who among us hasn’t said something on the fly and instantly wished we could catch our words in midair and snatch them back?

But President Obama wasn’t ad-libbing.  He made the “phony scandals” charge not once but three times – within a few days.  And Jay Carney, the president’s Baghdad Bob in the White House pressroom, said it too. So no one slipped up here.  This was part of a political strategy that had been given some thought.

Which raises a question:  What political genius came up with this idea?

Mr. Obama used to blame his predecessor, George Bush, for just about everything from the BP oil spill to the crummy economy which he made sure everyone knew … he “inherited.”  After five years, that dog won’t hunt anymore.  Even the most loyal followers of the current president are tired of hearing that tune. So now Team Obama comes up with this new catchy phrase – phony scandals – to make sure we know that whatever has gone wrong with the economy still isn’t his fault.

“With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals,” the president said,  “Washington has taken its eye off the ball.”

This raises a second question:  What phony scandals does the president have in mind?

Was Fast and Furious a phony scandal? You may recall that Fast and Furious was a federal program that allowed the sale of a few thousand guns to suspected thugs tied to Mexican drug gangs.  The feds planned to trace the guns into Mexico, but, oops, they didn’t.  And eventually two of the guns turned up at the scene of a shootout in which a U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed.

How about Benghazi, where four Americans, including our ambassador to Libya, were slaughtered?  That happened almost a year ago and we still don’t have all the facts.  The president said those responsible would be brought to justice.  They haven’t even been caught.

Is that a phony scandal?

What about the abuse of power by the IRS that involved the targeting of conservatives, with the possible involvement of a White House political appointee?   Back in May, President Obama said this:  “”If you’ve got the IRS operating in anything less than a neutral and non-partisan way, then that is outrageous.”

How did we go from outrageous to a phony scandal in just 2 ½ months?

And what should we make of the Justice Department’s decision to spy on journalists at the AP and Fox?  Or the NSA program that “mines data” on just about all of us – without, until recently, our knowledge?

Are those the phony scandals concocted by Republicans to thwart the noble Mr. Obama?

This president will say just about anything to shift blame away from himself and onto Republicans for the weakest economic recovery since World War II.  None of it could possibly be his fault: Not ObamaCare, which has led employers to turn full-time workers into part-timers to save money; not chronically high unemployment; not the $7 trillion dollars he added to the national debt, with precious little to show for it; and not his obsession with income inequality and spreading the wealth instead of endorsing policies that would actually boost economic growth.

And for a long time he’s gotten away with his sorry performance, thanks in part to clueless Americans who unfortunately are allowed to vote.

But his biggest ally has always been, and still remains, the so-called mainstream media, an institution that is supposed to hold the powerful to account, but has shown little interest in the scandals.  They never cared much about Fast and Furious or Benghazi, writing them off as partisan witch hunts.  The IRS story caught their interest, but only for a short time before it fell off their radar screen.  And you don’t read or hear much anymore from the MSM about spying – on Americans in general or journalists in particular.

Americans are losing faith in government.  We can thank Barack Obama for a lot of the disillusionment. As Peggy Noonan put it in her Wall Street Journal column:  “This White House is careless with the reputation of government.  They are a campaigning organization. Not a governing one.”

And how does President Obama deal with this serious problem.  He hits the campaign trail shouting PHONY SCANDALS.  This doesn’t even qualify as leading from behind.

  • bigtruckjoe

    Obama says and does pretty much anything he wants because he knows he can get away with it. Economy? Bush’s fault. Gas prices? Oil speculators fault? Benghazi murders? You Tube movie’s fault. High Unemployment? Global marketplace. He even blamed “Washington” the other day as if he weren’t the titular head of everything that is Washington. If the MSM had one iota of dignity left, they would hold him to some of his inane comments and not allow him to get away with saying anything about everything, based on fact or not, at let him get away with it. I’m sure that type of holding our elected officials feet to the fire will return if a Republican is ever elected again – which may not be the case if the MSM has anything to do with it.

    • plsilverman

      really? all the way thru the 450 filibusters?

    • plsilverman

      only blamed Bush II for the economy after he was blamed for the 11+ trillion $$$$ debt to HIM; high unemployment: direct result of general obstructionism and all the good jobs bills which were never read; but don’t get too aggressive on this big…. it was Obama who declined on getting the slam dunkers arraigned for their crime on humanity.

  • M. Andrews

      really ? I thought Reagan-Regan fixed it so only GOP could benefit politically. BUT..you might be right! Wall Street & big banks & big corps LOVE Obama!

  • John S

    During O’s first term when details about the Fast and Furious scandal were first surfacing, I was shocked by the media’s disregard for objectivity. I thought to myself that there was nothing Obama could do that would force the media to rebuke him. The IRS, (in conjunction with other executive branch organizations including the ATF and EPA) have targeted and harassed political enemies, reporters (most notably James Rosen of non-mainstream media Fox News) have been bugged and wire-tapped, an American diplomat and 3 other Americans have been killed as an embassy was overtaken and the White House has continued to lie about the incident (even jailing a purveyor of anti-Islam sentiments after blaming a video released on YouTube and also silencing everyone that involved that could provide information about the incident, portions of Obamacare have been unconstitutionally delayed for political expedience, recess appointments have been made when Congress was not in recess and, despite the action being declared unconstitutional by no less than three federal courts, Obama has continued to allow the appointments to make rules, and Obama has unilaterally and unconstitutionally created legislation regarding immigration, welfare, and the EPA. Sure, the mainstream media briefly condemned the IRS’s action and the wiretapping and bugging of reporters, but the scandals have largely disappeared from the nightly news. Obama is invincible.

    • plsilverman

      wrong. F & F started under Bush II’s att. gen. and Obama told Holder to end it. and you got proof 1600 runs the IRS?

  • Ditto

    I’m not only dreading the rest of O’b remaining second term but already in complete fear of having to live the rest of my life hearing the media’s appraisal of how wonderful the big eared clowns presidency was. Also, the endless interviews of him designed to revise history will make me barf!

    • Hell-Cat

      What I fear is the lasting and irreversible damage he’s doing to our country. But yes, there will be a revision of history.

      • plsilverman

        irreversible damage? ok, let’s revive BL and go back to Iraq and have all the GM and Chrysler buyers return their cars.

    • plsilverman

      that’s all how you FEEL. Look at it objectively. out of Cheney’s War in Iraq; AHCA, based upon a GOP State’s program, 30 million newly insured, most who can pay a premium, no more denial of preconditions; 4 million new jobs to be created in 2014 in healthcare; restoration of auto industry; credit card and student loan reform; decent job creation despite the GOP war on Blue Collar.

      • pmfsc3

        New jobs that are part time. The only reason unemployment rate dropped at all is because more people gave up looking. The gas prices are higher than ever since Obama wants us to pay what the Europeans pay so we use less gas. Four people dead in Bengahzi no answers from Obama on what he was doing. The fort hood killer is classified as a work place crime instead of a terrorist attack. Obama says the terrorist networks are finished and now we are closing embassies everywhere. He follows orwells double speak and Americans are following him. The country is lost.

        • plsilverman

          I disagree with everything but the p/t jobs. of course, the gov’t reports any job that lasted even one hr. that’s how Reagan survived his second term. but I like your post.

  • Phillip R

    Sadly, Bernie Goldberg gets it right again and again about Obama. This is a presidency that is aimless at best and completely incompetent at worst. It is likely the most disastrous American presidency of the last hundred years and is becoming more calamitous by the day. What is most apparent is Americans have re-elected a president that is fundamentally under-qualified for the job. This president acts like a 16th century European king on most important matters. That his divine attention is enough to sway things his way. All he need do is tour the country blasting Republicans and the world will be a better place for all, even the terrible one preventers, the cause of all America’s problems!. The idea of actually meeting with Republican leaders and hammering significant legislation that can improve the economy is inconceivable to our sitting king. The man lives in a glass campaign booth.

    • Sally Gallardo

      Boy, Phillip R. U hit the nail right on the head. O’Bama does act like he’s a king sitting on his throne, and letting others take the blame for his faults. He has never been or will be a president for the people, only the ones that will grease his palms so to speak. He has been against the republicans right from the get go. I’m not republican or democrat, and I can see this without even looking.

      • plsilverman

        gee whiz, he’s a politician. he’s done a good job considering 450 filibusters and the wholesale revival of the John Birch Society.

    • plsilverman

      the President “acts”?…name one action of Obama since 01-20-09 which a moderate Republican would not do. indeed, he has continued many of W’s programs. now rewrite your post and make it unbiased.

  • plsilverman

    hey Mark…your racist post will be reported here and on Twitter.

  • plsilverman

    Now Bernie, come on…….even your buddy O’Reilly said he is not convinced that any of these “scandals” are scandals [or that there is evidence that Obama directed any actions, thereof].
    Obama “blaming”? not really. It was only after he got tired of being blamed for the two unfunded wars, unfunded pharma., and unfunded tax relief and 11 + trillion dollars of debt left in the Rose Garden said that uttered a peep.
    When did he say that Bush II was responsible for the oil spill?. He might have said, Bush II let FEMA go to ruins, etc. But of course that’s not true :)
    Interesting that the station you celebrate, Foxnews, employs about half of the Bush II adm. and the big memo of the day was that the Gulf Spill was “Obama’s ‘Katrina’”. No way was that true.>>>>>>shift blame for the weakest economy? why is it relatively weak, pal? wanna ask the GOP and their 450 filibusters and encouragement of returning stimulus money and declining on needed infrastructure work plus pushing for more corporate raids of viable American companies. R U kidding? Put away those Bill Samman memo cards. And your bias against the President.

    OBama and his toady AG Holder have no conception of what truth is. whenever there is any problem, they shoot from the lip and expect us to swallow their load of horse hockey without protest. if anyone dares to disagree, they bristle and claim some sinister reason for your opposition. what’s even worse, our dumbed down voters happily elected him once and then reelected him, giving the two stooges another four years to continue to destroy our country.

    Obama is a conman filled with bitterness, anger, and scorn for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most detestable, malicious, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Using every crisis whether real or manufactured to push his immoral and
    unconstitutional agendas.
    Obama’s political career has been based on his skill in convincing people to judge him on the things he says, rather than his actions. This ability is effective for a campaign but a disaster for governing. This says much about the character of Obama.

  • NKQX57A

    What matters most here is Obama’s preoccupation with conservative moral thought as the root of the problems in America and the World. It must be expelled from any and all venues. What Obama fails to realize…without moral thought and a functioning moral conscience…Obama is the problem and America suffers for it.

    Even if Obama is not impeached, his legacy is toast… he will not have the place in history he so eagerly covet. Instead of ranking with Lincoln, FDR and Reagan and other giants, it seems more likely that he will be a case-study in presidential failure like Jimmy Carter.

    I could list a dozen or more facts as to…Obama’s place in HISTORY…behind Jimmy Carter, as the worst President in HISTORY.

    • plsilverman

      Obama is a worse President than Bush II who let his VP play commander in chief; who slept thru the warning of 9-11 and then gave us 2 unfunded wars and unfunded everything else?
      His legacy is toast? really? the first African-American President elected twice in a still pro-segregation country – and against the voter suppression movement? yeah, real bad. healthcare reform, essentially a Nat’l version of a GOP state program whose experts were sent to DC to help write HCA), a real disaster. a disaster for the insurers who got rich denyi9ng cancer patients coverage.
      Obama is the problem: did he come up with 450 filibusters and 125+ clotures on jobs bills? sending viable jobs overseas?
      What grounds would you impeach Obama? If Reagan was not impeached for the Beirut 241 and Bush II for slam dunking us into Iraq, ya think that making a recess app’t in a non-preferred time frame would do it?

  • brendan horn

    I love how Obama uses phrases like “Washington has taken it’s eye off the ball”. He implies that America needs him in order to refocus Washington’s eye on the ball – that if only Washington would listen to him the troubles of America would be solved. He is the king of vanity.

    • plsilverman

  • wally12

    Great article Bernie. Obama is the professional campaigner. He always speaks in generalities and refuses to get into too much detail. He is constantly stating things that many people , on first blush, agree with. The problem is that he really doesn’t believe in them and in fact contradicts these ideas at a later date. It is too bad that the uninformed public isn’t in tune with his antics. Many times, he will give opinions that support the base and the black community rather than providing presidential opinions that are neutral. This was evident in the Trayvon Martin case where he should have said, “I don’t have all the answers to the tragedy and rely on the evidence in the case to give us the full story”. Instead, Obama inserted himself into the case by indicating by his answer that Trayvon could have been his son. By this action, he fanned the racial question when there shouldn’t have been any. This isn’t an isolated example if one remembers the beer summit.

WHAT a difference five years make with three more yet to go. Talk about your worst nightmare. We are living it. To be fair he has had help from a press corps that has eschewed the values of fair and honest reporting. There was a time in this country when Obama would have been excoriated by a press seeking the truth. Are saving grace is that we have journalists like Bernard Goldberg telling telling it like it is.

          amazing Foxnews memo points. very good. “they” couldn’t handle Benghazi? Could Reagan handle Beirut? Iran? Could Nixon handle Cambodia? do you KNOW what you are talking about? The GOP led the charge to reduce security and State Dept. mid-management had to deal with the situation at that CIA site. by the way, the CIA was there in 25 minutes. Wanna review previous administrations handling of embassy affairs? you probably would not. “giving a pass on killing”? are you still bothered by the Reagan 241″ at Beirut”? It was ONE COMPOUND, wasn’t it? You bothered at all by Bush II letting the Man from Halliburton invent a war? The anti-Obama conjurations on this Hate Site continue. never one iota of proof on any of these “Scandals”, that they were run by 1600. But keep using your imagination. all the way thru the next 2 elections, when the hard right voter suppression attempts will only embolden the Liberal vote – they will stand in line 20 hours, if necessary.

            listen and learn: Nixon was fantastic. A War Hero. An experienced Capitol hiller. He said he’d end the Vietnam War and he did – thru “Vietnamization”, his term. he reduced troop strength 50% each year – AND AT THE SAME TIME HE BELIEVED IN THE MISSION! Made friends with enemies. He was the first President to try to end the cold war by actually visiting Communist nations. Was pro Affirmative Action. Was for price controls when needed. He ended the Draft. He defied his own party constantly. He left Carter a strong economy.
            Only mistakes: being too “true” to his friends..retaining MItchell..letting Kissinger run around in a bathrobe….coaching witnesses.

            I say he “Vietnamized” the war…yes, in May, 1975 it sure looked like a pointless disaster. all I mean is that he said he’d reduce troop strength 50% each year and he did….or show me where that’s wrong, and I guarantee I’ll research that and be glad to “adjust”, no problem.

            i dont think he had any other choice…he knew jungle war was a no win situation…plus he could’nt get any other angle witch he tried to pull a rabbit out of a hat like watergate,,and he couldnt find a sorted thing to break into to make his pariona go to work on..no jungle gate,,better shut down this war..y are u so giving on nixion???is it because we need to change the topic of what the demo party is????a bunch tradors,,POWER HUNGERY,,MONEY GRUBING,,SELF CENTERED,,UN WANTING TO HELP THE COUNTRY OUT OF THIS DEBOCOLE,,OF GLUTNEY,,OF MONEY DESTROYERS THAT SO THEY PROCLAME,,U NEED US?????WE NEED THEM MORE THAN THE BONE IN YOUR HEAD THAT DOSE NOT GIVE ANCWERS TO ALL THE PROBLEMS THAT U AND THE DEMOS CERATED WITH NO PROBLEM SOLVING,,OR ANCWERS PERIOD..JUST SO WE LOOK LIKE ALL THE OTHER COUNTREYS ON EARTH,,SOUTH AMERICA,,AFRICA,,MIDDLE EAST,,PHILLAPIENS…WE LOOK MORE EACH DAY LIKE THE RUSSIANS EVERDAY,,WITH THIS ANTI-AMERICAN PRES.

  • http://hemingwayreport.blogspot.com/ MerchantofVenom

    Phony scandals?

    Lets start with:

    “It was the video”

    Everyone knows this was a bald faced lie. Even the WH isn’t using it anymore!
    4 dead Americans in a seven hour siege. If they had got there too late is one thing but never even lifting a finger to help is a whole other matter.

    “It was rogue low level employees in Cincinnati”

    Another lie. We’ve gone through 88 agents with just about everyone and their brother pleading the 5th. BTW…wasn’t it Lois “the 5th” Lerner who admitted the IRS targeted conservative groups? After Barry feigned outrage, wasn’t the FBI supposed to investigate? It’s been months now. How come not one conservative who was targeted by the IRS has been contacted by the FBI. Why does Mueller still have a job?

    DOJ Wiretapping Rosen and the AP

    Holder:
    “That is not something that I’ve ever been involved in or heard of or would think would be a wise policy. In fact my view is quite the opposite.”
    Later we find out he signed off on it!

    How about this one?

    Fort Hood shooting deemed “workplace violence”
    Really?

    It was workplace violence like the Boston bombing was a cooking accident!

    • George Williams

      Legal Beagle will never address these points.

    • Wil

      When the first reports started coming in, there had already been reports of
      demonstrations in other areas that were being reported in the Middle East, in response to the
      video. No bald face lie!

      • chas615

        And thats all you got?

      • John Daly

        It absolutely WAS a bald faced lie. By the time the administration publicly started blaming the video, they had already known – based on information from their own people on the ground – that the video had nothing to do with it, and that it was a coordinated terrorist attack. That’s a fact… Already proven and stated under oath by numerous officials.

        I understand that you blindly love ‘everything Obama’, but clinging to what you know to be a lie, just to try and convince yourself that he’s worthy of your loyalty, is pretty darned pathetic.

        When topics like this come up, try this little exercise: Pretend it’s George W. Bush (and not Obama) at the middle of the controversy, and THEN decide, based on the facts, if you’re still going to adamantly defend him.

        • Wil

          ORIGINAL
          CIA TALKING POINTS (9/14/12): We
          believe based on currently available information that the attacks in Benghazi
          were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in
          Cairo and evolved into a direct
          assault against the U.S. Consulate and subsequently its annex.According
          to the CIA, the attacks in Benghazi “were spontaneously inspired by the protests
          at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo”—and the protests in Cairo were protests about that
          insulting video! Everyone on the planet knows this, except the millions of
          people who watch Fox News each night.

          • StanW

            Curious how Obama NOW claims that he knew it was terrorism from the very beginning.

            So Obama disagrees with his own CIA. At least he didn’t lose any sleep over it, or any fundraising time!

          • plsilverman

            Obama said that at the earliest juncture all that is known is that there is a rumour that some youtube video may have ignited the flame. those of us who recall Salam Rushti did not laugh. Ok? By the way, it was a site essentially defunded by the GOP….and the CIA was on the scene within 25 minutes. Aw, U knew that!

        • legal eagle

          So it was a “lie” about Benghazi? Did you get all excited when the Bush Administration lied about Pat Tillman?

        • plsilverman

          it was a REPORT delivered at the TIME and was reasonably REPORTED as what was “known” thus far – ever hear of Salam Rushti?

      FOXNEWS!!! always reliable! esp. recently when they said that the IRS leader visited 1600 157 times……when it was 11. or when Bill O. said that Obama’s trip to India was to cost us one billion dollars per day…or that that Egypt’s leader has 71 billion dollars…or when Hannity said 51% of tax payers pay NO taxes at all. YOU LOVE FOXNEWS? guess what, O’Reilly, the only credentialed host of the full-timers (even with his occasional nonsense) said he was not convinced these were scandals [or that 1600 directed any part of them].

    Obama and pals believe the People are just plain dumb. He should go to Agent Brian Terry’s gravesite with the Agents Mother and tell Her the truth as she has asked. We know she is not holding her breath waiting nor are the families who lost relatives in the Benghazi massacre. If this is part of his Hope and Change , well we do see right through the muck. This is the worst administration in history. It sickens us to see the news each day. Scandals, ya, I think NOT. He needs to start speaking the Truth.

            Change of subject: you did see that one of the networks is coming out with a mini series about Hillary? It looks like the progressive liberal political machine is getting geared up for 2016!

          • Bob Hadley

            Actually, I don’t defend that statement. Even though I supported Hillary for Pres. in ’08 and will probably support her in ’16 if she runs, I don’t defend things unless I support them.
            Even with her warts, Hillary so far outshines the purported ’16 Republican contenders. If Geb Bush runs, however, I may reexamine my support of Hillary.

          • George Williams

            Just what attracts you to Hillary? Her “what does it matter” rant, a callous non-response to the Benghazigate hearings. Her hands off approach to ignoring security in Benghazi, or her failed efforts in foreign policy, or perhaps her cynical attachment to her Billy for the sake of keeping her political viability after his perjury and impeachment scandals. Her support for the corrupt Obama? Which character flaws attract you most? Or are you just gaga over her beauty and housekeeping as First Lady?

          • Bob Hadley

            You don’t have any substance on the issues, so you resort to two ad hominem attacks – one on me and one on Hillary. Nice going!

            You might also reread my post to see what I really said, instead of indulging in mischaracterizations and character attacks.

            You’re obviously so emotional that you thinking and your reading comprehension is impaired. Maybe you need some remedial education.

          • George Williams

            “Outshines”? I’d rather have an ordinary intelligent and competent plodder that another Obama. Hillary has nothing of substance to commend her. You can’t even find one good substantial thing to say about her, yet you say that she outshines the Republicans. How can we respect your opinion if you are like the rest, infatuated with an empty suit that promises nothing in the way of realistic capitalism and fidelity to the laws of the land.. It’s the same cultist nonsense that got Obama elected and put us in the fix that we find ourselves today. Hillary would only continue the same failed Democratic policies that we’ve suffered under for four and a half years.

          • Bob Hadley

            “How can we [???] respect your opinion if you are like the rest, infatuated with an empty suit that promises nothing in the way of realistic capitalism and fidelity to the laws of the land.”

            In other words, how can you respect anyone who fundamentally disagrees with you. You must live in a safe little world. I wonder how anyone with such an attitude can have self-respect. And who’s “we”???
            If that’s the way you think, I could hardly care less about your respect.
            Of the field so far, Hillary is the most prepared for the presidency. She knows the issues better by far, has far more and diversified experience and has far better political skills.

          • George Williams

            Ok. Except for her new title as the government’s professional tourist, just what did she accomplish? Answer: nothing. No solutions to the middle east problems. He reset with Russia was a bust. As a matter of fact, the Russians and the rest of the world have less respect for us than ever. She blew it in Benghazi, getting people killed, and lied to the families of the Benghazi victims to their faces, when she knew full well that the truth had nothing to do with the video. Think about it, this she cynically and shamelessly lied to the face of the bereaved relatives of murdered federal workers. Could you do that? She lied about being under attack in Boznia; the news reels prove it. She lied about her daughter being at the site of the World Trade Center on 9/11. Skills? She has no skills. The only reason that she was given the job of Secretary of State was to get her ticket punched for the presidency. Hillary is an Alinsky Democrat, having studied under him. Alinsky was an unethical man who cared nothing for the truth, only political outcomes. That’s the kind of person Hillary is. Hillary was fired as Watergate committee council because she was unethical. Read about Hillary and Alinsky. Judge for yourself. Just has she accomplished that makes you so certain that she’d make a good president? We’d be getting another 4 years of Obama and economic stagnation.

          • Bob Hadley

            As SOS, Hillary led the efforts to save the Chinese dissident who was holed in the US embassy in China. And smoothed over relations with China afterwards so as not to disrupt relations with China.

            Due largely to her expert diplomacy, the US was able to impose extremely tough economic sanctions on Iran and slow down its nuclear weapons program.

            Due largely to her expert diplomacy, the dissident who was under house arrest is now free and US relations has not suffered as a result

            Due to her expert diplomacy, the US was able to secure UN support and, in particular, European support for the Libya mission.

            Due largely to her expert diplomacy, hope has been revived for constructive Israel-Palestine relations

            Hillary smoothed over US-Pakistani relations after the killing and seizure of UBL.

            Despite the characterizations that you and other right-wing ideologues like to draw about Hillary Clinton, one of her primary accomplishments in her entire career is building bridges – both at home and abroad.

            Obviously, Hillary has not always gotten her way in the Obama administration. And yes, she has her warts. But again, she more prepared to assume the presidency than any of the current Republican field.

            Hillary has visited more countries and traveled more than any of her predecessors. Almost by definition, a good SOS’s role is subtle and in the background. You take a cheap shot by claiming that her accomplishments are nil. You can easily ask what any SOS state has accomplished.

          • George Williams

            Tourists do traveling. Diplomats do diplomacy. Traveling Is not an accomplishment unless you’re out to make a record. You’re easily impressed.
            She failed in her so-called reset with Russia. Russians respect only one thing, the willingness to use force.
            She failed in Syria. The Russians still support the Assad regime.
            She’s accomplished nothing in regard to Palestine and the Israelis. What you call an accomplishment is the same thing that’s been tried for decades and failed. Only end results, a solution to their conflict has any value. There is nowhere near hope as the major stumbling blocks still exist. That must be Obama’s “hope”, a kind of hopeless hope that consists of all talk and little action.
            The Pakistanis are dependent upon U.S. aid. The still hate the U.S. but will never go so far as to openly oppose use. I guess Hillary felt obligated to “smoothing over” relations after helping destroy them.
            It’s a complete lie that she made a difference with Iran. She’s only been doing what her predecessor under Bush did. Nothing’s changed. Again, only results count and I see nothing in the way of permanence as Iran continues their nuclear weapons program.
            Big deal. The UN did nothing with regard to Libya. The only action was on the part of the U.S. The Obama administration lied to the American people once again by claiming that bombing that country was not hostilities and fools like you accept such lies.

            Wow, the fact that she helped a Chinese dissident out of a fix is a very minor event on the world stage. I’m not impressed.
            No. I’m not impressed. She’s left no big legacy, only small ones that will soon be forgotten. It’s fortunate for her that she has sycophants like you that are easily impressed by so little.

          • Bob hadley

            You can be negative without being critical and you can be critical without being negative. No, I’m certainly not easily impressed. Not by you and your ilk, and not by Pres. Obama and Hillary Clinton. I see both as having warts but as basically positive forces.
            Any fool can play the game you play. And you play the game with gusto. For the most part, a SOS does not make policy, but rather seeks to implement it as well as can. That Pakistan receives aids nothing to do with Hillary. The US policy on Libya was not Hillary’s decision. In fact, my sense is that she would have had a different Libya policy. But she did win UN support and European support for this policy. Without this support the US would have lost some standing in the world.
            Despite your blather, Hillary did win support for the harsh sanctions on Iran that slowed down their nuclear weapons program.
            What you fail to comprehend is that foreign policy is as much as process as anything else. It’s a process tha, at its best, progresses over decades. It’s unfair and ignorant to measure a SOS’s tenure in terms of end results. A future SOS may well reap the benefit of Hillary’s diplomacy.
            And, BTW, you can’t have effective diplomacy without traveling. DUH!!!!!!!!!
            As for the peace process in the middle east, it is yet to be seen if it’ll succeed. But, without Hillary’s diplomacy, that peace process would be dead.
            You don’t appreciate subtlety. You don’t appreciate process. One of the things this country was built on is the primacy of process. Just read the COTUS.

          • George Williams

            Hillary’s diplomacy is a total failure. Little will be remembered of her legacy. Hillary was responsible for the security at the Benghazi consulate and was derelict in her duty, ignoring the security situation, lying to the American people about the cause of the attack, just to protect her reputation. She is not worthy of the national trust. She will lie again if it is in her interests to do so. You’re like half the population, gullible, infatuated with celebrity power and easily impressed by mediocrity. You and your ilk are why Obama and his clown sidekick got elected and your ilk are responsible for the coming disaster.

          • Bob Hadley

            If I was infatuated by celebrity power, I would be gaga over Pres. Obama. I am not, nor was I ever. He wasn’t even my first choice for pres. And I’m not nor have I ever been gaga over either of the Clintons. If you’re, superficial all you’ll see is their glitz. If you look at substance, it’s a whole different ball game.
            If there is a disaster that I think you are referring to, it’ll be the fault of the crazies in the Republican Congress and those who elected them.

        • Bob Hadley

          You’re grossly mischaracterizing Nancy Pelosi’s statement. In response to the blather about the ACA containing provisions for death panels, etc., she said that people would have to read it to see for themselves what’s in the bill, i.e. she was suggesting most of the “sky is falling” crowd had not read the bill.
          Yes, her remark was inartful. The opportunists pounced and the ignorant followed gleefully. It’s too bad that Nancy Pelosi does not always speak perfectly, as you do.
          The truth is that several drafts of the bill had been debated ad nauseum on talk shows and in committee meetings (many of which were actually on C-SPAN).
          It was only the final stretch of meetings that were not public. It was only the final draft of the bill that was completed shortly before the vote.
          You’d never know this from watching Fox News or reading right-wing blogs. Why let facts interfere with your narrative?

          • George Williams

            “The truth is that several drafts of the bill had been debated ad nauseum on talk shows and in committee meetings (many of which were actually on C-SPAN).
            It was only the final stretch of meetings that were not public.”
            Really? Then why are we all so ignorant of its provisions and why have the unions all of a sudden in opposition to its provisions? You speak with forked tongue. Lastly, the bill is written such that on person has the power to write all the rules necessary to carry it out, aka, making specifics up as she goes along. Is it any wonder that such a thoughtless bill would result in unintended consequences.

          • Bob Hadley

            That was an inatrful evasion, almost as inartful as Nancy Pelosi’s statement that you severely mischaracterized.
            Why are you and others so ignorant of the bill and it’s provisions. You tell me. Perhaps because you and others listen to these crazed right-wing talking heads who make millions appealing to your base emotions.
            Why do the unions oppose it. Some of the major unions oppose the part of the ACA that would displace their health care “Cadillac” plans. They didn’t realize it until recently. They want the bill cured, not killed!

          • George Williams

            Cure the bill for them and you’d have to destroy Obamacare because it would have to yank money from others to do so. The whole thing depends upon taxing some to give to others. Ceding concessions to the Unions would be unfair to the others. Just think about it. You would be subsidizing their Cadillac plan, while you’d have to accept Obama’s minimalist crap.

          • Bob Hadley

            Not necessarily. I’m not sure how this problem can be treated, and neither are you. After all, you have shown ignorance of the ACA. You have trouble distinguishing between wishful thinking and facts.
            As for subsidizing the unions Cadillac plans, again not necessarily.
            But, currently, I am subsidizing the ER bills of those uninsured using the ER for both primary care and for emergencies. Even though we have had an employer mandate here in Hawaii for more than 40 years – requiring employers to pay part of their employees’ medical insurance if they work 20 hours a week or more – we still have burgeoning unpaid ER expenses. These expenses are far less then they would be without our liberal health care laws.

          • George Williams

            “But, currently, I am subsidizing the ER bills of those uninsured using the ER for both primary care and for emergencies.”
            Easy, have the government make law mandating suing those who would default on their bills. It’s just like you Democrats to feel sorry for such people, then complain about them and finally lax other people under penalty of law to pay for them. If you feel that there are deadbeats, make law penalizing them for failing to pay for their bills, but don’t punish the rest of us who have insurance to do so, Either punish them or resort to establish a charity to help pay to pay for their bill.

          • Bob Hadley

            No, it’s NOT easy. You can sue the deadbeats, but deadbeats usually have little or no assets and little or no discernible income. Hospitals often do sue those who use the ER and don’t pay their bills, but more often than not merely succeed in racking up attorney’s fees and court costs in addition to their unpaid bills.
            There’s plenty of charities, but not enough to over the tens of billions in unpaid ER use PLUS all the other uses for charity. And how do you punish deadbeats. Debtors cannot be jailed as per something called the U. S. Constitution. And even if they could be jailed, how much are you willing to pay for their incarceration and what would that accomplish anyway?
            Is there a workable alternative to being forced to subsidize unpaid for ER use other than (almost) universal health care. Be specific. Talk is cheap. Just give me a plan that is clear, workable and realistic. I don’t think there is one.

          • Drew Page

            The ‘talking head’ that I listened to was none other than Max Baucus, who called Obamacare, that he helped write, a TRAIN WRECK.

          • Bob Hadley

            Obviously, you either listened to a misleading sound bite or just listened to an opponent of the ACA quote him.
            Sen. Baucus said that he thought the health care exchanges wouldn’t open soon enough and, even if they did, the necessary information would not be disseminated widely enough for enough people to make wise decisions concerning their health care plans.
            You have a special talent for mischaracterizing statements made by those you disagree with.
            If you’re so right, why don’t you confront real issues?

          • Hammockbear

            Re: ACA. Barbara Saunders was at an Editorial Board meeting as was Nancy Pelosi. March 9, 2010. I believe if you google this, the truth will be there. If you do not care for FOX NEWS, then why on earth do you bother ? In reply to you also, I never have said I always speak perfectly, Facts, Bob, speak volumes. I tend to trust FOX.

          • Bob Hadley

            If you trust Fox News, then I have a bridge to sell you. The sad truth is that to find out the WHOLE truth on matters of political importance you have to pay careful attention to all networks.
            Fox News presented Nancy Pelosi’s statement out-of-context. It was just too good a sound bite to present in context. And people like you simple ate it up.

          • Bob Hadley

            And, why do I bother listening to Fox News? James Carville had an excellent retort to his wife, Mary Madalin, on a talk show when she patted him on the back for listening to Rush Limbaugh: “We’re Democrats, we listen to everyone!”

          • Hammockbear

            As do Republicans!!!

          • Bob Hadley

            But ideologues like yourself only hear what you want to hear or only hear selectively. For example, your gross mischaracterization of Rep Pelosi’s statement regarding the ACA.

          • Hammockbear

            Apparently Bob, you failed to fact check. Best try again. I never have mischaracterized Nancy Pelosi. Actually, I applaude her connections for her husband to get govt. money for his winery, that was during the first term of Obama. And then there was the party jet at the tax payers expense. Yessah.

          • Bob Hadley

            Wow! Two inartful evasions. You want to try for three? Let’s say those two thing are true, which may be true. Still, that doesn’t negate the fact that you severely mischaracterized her remark regarding the ACA.

          • Hammockbear

            Frankly Bob, I don’t give a dam.

          • Bob Hadley

            I know. You don’t care if you severely mischaracterize what Rep. Pelosi says or what anyone else you disagree with says as long as you’re supporting your narrative. Apparently, your motto is “Support my narrative by hook or by crook.”

          • Hammockbear

            Frankly, Nancy Pelosi is a minor player in the political spectrum at this time. I did Not mis characterize what she said. I referred to her statement about passing the Health Care bill First and Then, reading it. Nothing more. This article is about President Obama wanting to stop the Scandal talk. Nothing more.

          • Bob Hadley

            Rep. Pelosi was addressing the wild accusations (death panels, etc.) the ignorant cynics made regarding the ACA when she made that infamous remark. What she meant to say is that they would see what’s really in the bill when they read it.
            Her point was that most of them hadn’t even read the bill, or any draft of it. Her remark was made a little inartfully. The demagogues pounced and their ignorant followers ate it up.
            If she were perfect like you, every statement she makes would be crystal clear.

          • Hammockbear

            As I stated before Bob, I really do not care. Your personal attacks on me mean nothing but merely showing your emotional upset. The topic here is the Scandals that haunt this administration. I want the TRUTH about Fast and Furious from all involved so that Agent Brian Terry’s murder will be solved and allow some closure for his family. The same being said for the families who also lost loved ones in the Benghazi murders. Obama and Holder are at the top of the list with Hillary following close. So in those two situations, Pelosi does Not matter. She should be demanding the truth from Obama and Holder and all the IRS employees who refused to talk. That Bob, is a total disgrace to America and pure manure tossed at those families who lost their loved ones to murder. Truth speaks volumes. Bring it On.

          • Bob Hadley

            “The topic here is the Scandals that haunt this administration.”
            Then why did you bring up Rep. Pelosi’s statement and why did you keep defending your mischaracterization of it? It’d be much more effective if you had stood corrected and then moved on.
            Instead, whenever you’re caught, you say you don’t care and then change the subject
            Yes, I too am waiting for all the facts coming out about Benghazi. I’ve watched parts of the hearings on C-Span. You have to pay attention a variety of news media. Fox News will downplay or omit anything that favors Pres. Obama on the Benghazi tragedy.. MSNBC does the opposite.
            I gave up on waiting for the explanation of why Pres. GW Bush invaded Iraq. How many Americans were killed and severely disfigured because of that episode?
            All I can do is make an educated guess. Do you care about this?

          • Hammockbear

            Doubt you and I will see eye to eye. So I am ending the comments here. Have a good day.

          • Bob Hadley

            BTW, the only personal attacks I made against you were connected to remarks you made in this forum. And you started it, by making personal attacks on Rep. Pelosi.

          • George Williams

            You voted for Obama, perhaps the worst president ever to hold the presidency. I cannot see why anyone would respect your judgment.

            you only respect those in basic agreement with you. It’s a tribute to your open mind. :)
            Pres. Obama has not done badly with cards he was dealt.

          • George Williams

            This country would be out of its recession by now after experiencing a normal recovery, if it were not of the tax policies of Barack Obama. You and your ilk are too stupid to recognize that.

          • Bob Hadley

            If Pres. Obama had listened to the Republican Congress we would have slipped into a depression. I think most of the Republican Congress at the time) knew this, but demagogued the issue anyway. They knew, that as a minority, they wouldn’t get blamed. So they appealed to base emotions.
            The republican Congress fought him tooth and nail at every turn. The economy is improving nonetheless.
            It’s well documented that Republican Senators met on the day of Pres. Obama’s inauguration to commiserate. They ended by devising a plan to bring Pres. Obama down.

          • Lc Goodfellow

            This ain’t a dam poker game. And who dealt this mess?
            Obama still has the WH and the Senate. And now it’s everybodys fault but “That One”

            I have a black President that has wasted, what could have been the historic moment in the years of this country.

            lcd ” Does the village know your gone? “

          • Bob Hadley

            No, it’s certainly not a poker game. Pres. GW Bush wasted what could have been a historic moment. He had a huge surplus. Even with the mild recession that he also inherited, he could have dramatically reduced the debt, brought our infrastructure up to par with our major economic competitors and made strides in beefing up medicare and ss.

            Instead he handed over to Pres. Obama an economy that was in free-fall. Pres. Obama did not have many options.

            The republican Congress fought him tooth and nail at every turn. The economy is improving nonetheless.
            It’s well documented that Republican Senators met on the day of Pres. Obama’s inauguration to commiserate. They ended by devising a plan to bring Pres. Obama down.

            The pres. and the senate cannot pass and enact any legislation without cooperation from the House.

            BTW, YOUR village is calling. :)

          • Hammockbear

            Bob, you Bet I trust FOX NEWS. I also watch and read other networks as well. In the end, It is FOX who I trust. WSJ is a paper I read and often the same news I read on WSJ finally appears on the alphabets networks about a week later. CBS has swung so far left it will about lean over as does NBC and ABC at times remains more neutral. Next we hear Hillary will have a special on NBC. I should be fishing when that is airing. James Carville is a smart man, that is partly the reason he married the Nice Mary Madalin. She is an excellent commentator.

          • Bob hadley

            It sounds like you trust the sources who feed your narrative. Fox News and WSJ often omit or de-emphasize facts that may not sit right with their consumers. And yes, the liberal media does it too.

          • Hammockbear

            So Bob, what sources for News do you recommend? I am interested.

          • Bob Hadley

            I recommend Fox News, the WSJ, the NYT, (yes) the dreaded MSNBC, CNN, Bloomberg, CNBC.
            Yes, it’s time consuming and confusing, but if you’re really interested in the truth and NOT a certain narrative, you have to do it as best you can.

          • Hammockbear

            NYT twice a week, a wee bit of CNN, Canada Free Press, but after 8 years of Bush bashing I cannot bring myself to turn on MSNBC. Often I read papers in Europe, as is interesting to see their views of the USA. In the end, I trust FOX.

          • Bob Hadley

            You can bring yourself to listen to and actually trust Fox News with all the Obama bashing – some of it subtle and some of it not so?

          • George Williams

            Judging by its outcome, and the bill’s unintended consequences, it’s the legislators that voted for it that didn’t read the bill. It’s funny how the Democrats are shocked about these unintended consequences when they come to public attention. We can assuredly blame them for not reading the bill, can’t we?

          • Bob Hadley

            For the most part, they only didn’t read the final draft of the bill. Previous drafts had been available for a long time and had been debated ad naseum. They knew pretty much everything that was going into the bill. They just didn’t know all the unintended consequences.

            It’s the same that happened to medicare. When it was first enacted, all the naysayers said “The sky is falling.” And when unintended consequences emerged, the naysayers said even more loudly, “The sky is falling.” But medicare was tweaked, and now it’s much more good than bad. And yes, it needs to be tweaked again to make it more viable.

          • George Williams

            No. Health care is on sixth of the economy, so any mistakes made have huge affects on the nation. You don’t tinker with it and hope for the best. People’s welfare is at stake and it shouldn’t be treated as a social experiment. If it destroys our great health care system and drives doctors out of the profession it will have serious repercussions for decades to come and chaos ensue. And Medicare has been destroying our health care system for years by underpaying doctors and driving them from taking on patients. You and your friends cavalierly think that we can haphazardly change things that affect the lives of the nation without consideration of all the consequences. No one is going to give your party a second chance. It will be through when the premiums rise and the health care system collapse.

          • Bob Hadley

            I disagree. The benefits of medicare outweigh its flaws. For example, my Mom is on medicare and receives fine medical care.
            Yes, health care is about 1/6 of our economy and was rapidly rising as a portion of our economy due to the broken system. Something had to be done. Any solution or non-solution to our medical care system will have flaws. The point is to take the avenue with the least flaws and to work on minimizing any ill effects.
            No, the sky is not falling. You and your friends can hold your breath and wish for doom, but it just ain’t happening.

    • Paula

      I seriously doubt he could tell the truth…or cares what happens to any American. And he will lie about those scandals for the rest of his life!

      • Hammockbear

        This latest attempt to hide the truth is insulting to every American. IRS employees who refuse to answer under oath, to Hillary to Holder, they are surely part of the cover up of the century in each situation. Why have the Republicans not gone into nasty mode and demanded Answers?

        • Paula

          Good question. And, personally, I am tired of hearing the “reason” why they don’t. We don’t want to lower ourselves to their level.

          I have never been in combat… but I’ve heard men talk about it…when your back is against the wall..and there is no way out…you have 3 options: 1. Surrender. 2. Die. 3. Fight back!

          The Republicans have surrendered and are dying. Meanwhile, the progressives are gathering more strength and fighting dirtier every day.

          Our representatives are showing weakness and therefore ALL of us are deemed weak…. and they are laughing at us. They have made us afraid… no one wants the IRS coming after them! No one wants the NSA, FBI, cops and the rest of them coming after us!

          That was a brilliant move on the White House to scare us into submission. To scare us quiet! I’m talking about our representatives too. We the people are asking questions but it’s falling on deaf ears.

          Until we get leaders that will unite us, organize us (like ACORN for instance) we will continue our downward spiral. And what will we get? We’ll get Hillary Clinton for president in 2016!

          • Hammockbear

            Obviously this administration does not care about the People. This latest attempt at calling scandals Phony is a lame attempt to cover up lies. I expect more from the Republican elected and they better get Tough. Since the late Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s mother was on tv last weekend and made her statement of invitation to the President to meet her at her son’s grave and tell her the Truth/ well that seems to have fallen on deaf ears too, I bet the truth hurts. He should bring Eric Holder with him also. But it is the SOS in DC and in the end, we have to pay for another grande vacation while we donate food and clothing to fellow Americans who have lost jobs, homes and are trying to survive in the greatest country in the world. Hillary will never be President. She has the makings of one but who can trust her after Benghazi?

    Maybe all these scandals really are “phoney”. And maybe it’s time to reopen the phoney scandal that came to be known as “Watergate.” Wasn’t the whole thing cooked up by a disgruntled civil servant who was passed over for the top FBI job?
    Maybe the Obama White House was uninvolved in the recent scandals and the Nixon White House was clueless about the Watergate break-in cover-up.

    The part Obama thinks is phony is the “scandal” part or just the word alone. You see, these are part and parcel to just another day at work- in otherowrds: Business as Usual.

    I don’t believe he actually thinks these things are even newsworthy, which explains why he looks confused when asked about them or stammers his way through an answer- he doesn’t even give them thought- they’re already behind him- not worthy of his attention- he believes they are just collateral damage to the “greater good” he is spreading all over the nation and the world.

  • Daniel

    All true Bernie. If the founders had anticipated the effect 100 years of progressive liberal brainwashing would have on the character of the American people, they may have written a better system of checks and balances into our constitution. When all three branches of government are bought and paid for by someone, how can we expect them to function properly. They just did not expect us to elect representatives and executives that would be bought so easily. And they sure did not anticipate a Supreme court that would re-characterize Obamacare as a tax just so they could find it constitutional for their President. When Fox interviews the 20 somethings on the streets of our cities, it makes me want to move to Belize. If it were not so fatal to our countries existence, the blank stares and shear narcissism would be funny.

  • jq2intx

    Thanks Bernie for telling it like it is. Obama is unwilling to stop lying, or perhaps it is unable. Whichever it is the MSM will back him to the hilt. Unless he decides he doesn’t need them anymore either. Useful idiots are only good for so long then under the bus.

    When is the Chicago Con Man going to show some leadership? He claims Washington has ‘taken its eye off the ball’ as if he isn’t part of Washington. As if he is a bystander giving his opinion about what is wrong with Washington. After all, his job is to simply act cool and hang out with celebrities and once in while throw one of his tried and failed ideas at Congress and blame them for the problem. And why is it that only the House of Representatives gets any of his scorn? Isn’t the Senate run by the Dems and their talking corpse disguised as the majority leader? They have done nothing for years.

    We are witnessing the beginning of the end of this great nation as it slides inexorably toward becoming another Western European style, semi-socialist failed nanny state and those who oppose the Chicago Con Man will be to blame for that as well. I truly despair for what was once a great nation where hard work, education and initiative meant something.

      You give Bari-Berry too much credit… He’s not just a Chi-town politi-thug, which was a learned talent… He’s the Indonesian candidate selling snake oil remedies to a brainwashed bunch of morons possessing the IQ of a Missouri mule… Why would you expect “leadership” from a man using fraudulent ID’s to prove his legitimacy? It makes no sense whatsoever….

      • ALBERTKING901

        you really shouldn’t denigrate a missouri mule like that. at least a missouri mule works for a living.

        • joepotato

          I get your point… (I think) the Missouri mule does have more common sense than your average brainwashed libtard… my humble apology to any Missouri mules (and/or their owners) that were offended… No Missouri mules were harmed in the posting of this….

    • legal eagle

      Obama is referring to Tea Party Republicans who don’t wish to pass any legislation…..Obama rightly blames Boehner who is afraid to let the House vote on bills that will pass ie…immigration…..Congress wont pass anything and it’s Obama’s fault….Why?

  • Drew Page

    Thank you for a great article Bernie. You again have hit the nail squarely on the head. I am so disgusted with the current administration and its policies, their actions and their inactions that I find it hard to be civil when speaking about it.
    I have voted in every election for which I’ve been eligible. I have supported conservative candidates at all levels and have contributed to the campaigns of those I would have represent me with both my time and my money. I confess, I don’t know what else to do.

  • k962

    The only thing phony about the scandals is Eric Holder’s investigation of them! The FBI has not seen ONE Tea Party group yet to date! De Facto there is no investigation! Obama and Holder are the greatest blatant liars ever to be in Washington!

  • Ln Sue

    I don’t have to listen to FOX news to know that Obama is not a leader. I just had to listen to him to see right thru his rhetoric. He is a politician extraordinaire with all kinds of (liberal? other?) support to get him where he is today.It seems like magic that he was a nobody one day, read and delivered a terrific speech at the democratic convention and bingo he is running for president!!! I stopped believing in him after his long relationship in the church of Rev. Wright. I know the media does their best to influence one way or another, but I hear his speeches real time and I don’t think he is being open or honest with the American People. I can’t prove anythng but my antenna’s are up everytime I hear him talk. I don’t see this country going in a positive direction. I keep hoping it will but the evidence shows othersize. Obama said in a speech that he would never let Detroit go down. Well now it is bankrupt. What could he do? what could he have done? Why did he have to say anything anyway? But to say the current issues going on are phony? Tell that to the familes of the dead at Benghazi? How many of us knew before the fact that the IRS would be incharge of our health payments? If you knew would you have supported it? I wouldn’t trust the IRS to take on any more than they already take on. Were other options on the table? We the people know nothing until it is too late. I am glad news agencies delve into this because the check and balance system doesn’t seem to really be doing their job when HE can find ways to skirt around them.

  • rbblum

    Scandalous times of a phony president.

    • legal eagle

      Scandalous refers to the Tea Bagger morons in the house?

      • rbblum

        Might want to review the fall of the Roman Empire. . . . or the fall of Detroit. Take your pick.

        Otherwise, the US is ‘broke’ . . . financially and morally. . . .not having the realistic ability to pay off a debt of 10 trillion . . . much less 20 trillion . . . or 30 trillion.

        • Brian Fr Langley

          actually you might to want too add in state and municipal debt. Then go for the unfunded liabilities re pensions Federal, State and Municipal. Now the outstanding debt is approaching 220 TRILLION. And that’s NOT counting the new programs coming on stream. These debts all have one thing in common. As they are owed by Government, that means they are UNCOLLECTED TAXES. (Now some $700,000 per man woman and child). What kind of Nation borrows to pay for their standard of living knowing they are not likely to ever be able to pay the money back?

          • legal eagle

            What is an unfunded liability and why is that an entry on any balance sheet…..If unfunded liabilities were a balance sheet entry 98% of American Corporations would be bankrupt…

          • Brian Fr Langley

            If (and when) corporations borrow from their pension plans they are either charged with embezzlement or they have the explicit permission of their stakeholders and then (if they have appropriate assets) pay appropriate interest. Their stakeholders only invest knowing the requisite pay back and risk, Governments on the other hand have neither assets nor other off setting incomes. What they have are future taxpayers dollars. Period. Oh, and unfunded liabilities MUST remain on their books.

          • legal eagle

            Obviously you are confused as to what the definition of an unfunded liability is? Perhaps you should Google it…..What you are describing is not an unfunded liability…
            Governments have no assets or offsetting income? Have you ever heard of a tax anticipation bond?

          • Brian Fr Langley

            Listen genius, if a corporation has a liability, by definition it’s on their balance sheet. If not, no one has a claim against it. (so they don’t actually owe it) Governments on the other hand have trillions owed to pension funds that ARE owed and ARE payable. BUT, they have put NO money aside what so ever to cover these liabilities, (thus they are still OWED but unfunded). Corporations as you rightly point out don’t have unfunded liabilities on their balance sheets because they are NOT allowed to have any. What I was pointing out, (and in I way I thought you might understand) is, it is true some Corporations borrow from their employee pension funds. My further point is, that your point that corporations would some how be in a similar position as a government owing unfunded trillions, is a crock of bull c&%p.

        • legal eagle

          You review the falloff the Roman Empire and come up with the analogy…..Don’t have time for stupidity….Detroit’s bankruptcy is a political decision not an economic one….Republicans want to screw with worker’s pensions because they don’t believe workers should get pensions…

      • Douglas Mortimer

        When you have no argument to make, just name-call and blame everyone but the used car salesman that you think is freakin’ Caesar reincarnate. Congress is a joke, too, but it amuses me how any time factual arguments are used against Obama, his supporters wind up sounding like a five year old on a playground trying to blame the other kids for his breaking of the swing set. Classic…

        • legal eagle

          So now you are the decision maker on what argument is valid? Are the only valid objections to your statements those you wish to listen to? As I assume you didn’t vote for Obama what make your arguments valid? Tell me what great insight you have as to why you only get excited when there is a Democratic “scandal”? I know… you didn’t agree with everything Bush did? You only agreed with 98%…and with Obama you agree with 2%?
          Keep you’re hatred going because Hillary will be the next target of your hypocrisy…

          • Douglas Mortimer

            Well, I guess I am guilty of the same thing as you are…deciding what arguments are valid and which are not. One, you assume I was a Bush supporter…wrong. I didn’t vote for him either time. In fact, I think the GOP is as much of a group of power whores as the Dems are, just with different money suppliers. Bush was a disaster, both with foreign policy by expanding the US involvement in the Middle East and the disastrous creation and empowering of the Patriot Act and NSA. Secondly, his Medicare expansion was another example of bloated government at its worst, and his handling of economic issues was inexcusable. A scandal is a scandal, and the problem here is that too many people only care when it is the party of which the commentator does not belong. That’s an obvious example of mindless party whoring to me. And FYI, I am a registered Independent as I find, as stated earlier, both parties to be concerned about only gaining power and keeping it. I believe that Hillary will be the next president, not because she is any better or worse than anyone else, but because she has name recognition, big money support, and the GOP has no one worth spitting at when it comes to a potential candidate. Thanks for being so omniscient that you think you had me pigeonholed as a GOP hack, but try again, my friend. Not everyone who disagree with Obama is a partisan puppet, but I have to admit, your statements and non-answer replies lead me to believe that that is indeed what you are. Thanks!

          • legal eagle

            So Bush was a disaster and Obama is a disaster….Who wasn’t a disaster? St. Reagan?

          • Douglas Mortimer

            Reagan had his good points as did Clinton. No president is perfect nor should we expect them to be. Where my problem arises is when I see blatant disregard of separation of powers and checks and balances. Obama doesn’t even hide the fact that if Congress doesn’t do it his way, he will go the Executive Order route, a favorite ploy of presidents since FDR…and a bad one. From a historical perspective, that has been a problem since the age of Theodore Roosevelt, although one could argue it goes back further than that.

          • legal eagle

            Whatever? Most people want the government to function….If process is your thing and you believe that checks and balances are the most important thing to you then you a re a philosopher not a pragmatist….Bush signed hundreds of bills with signing statements…so what? Congress doesn’t work anymore because of filibusters( not provided for in the constitution) and by the Hastert Rule which was the brainchild of that power hungry maniac Newt Gingrich…
            Do you vote “independent” so you can rail against everyone knowing your candidate can never get elected?

          • legal eagle

            Registered independent means you don’t want to admit you’re a Republican…..Who is the last Democrat you voted for in a presidential election?

          • Douglas Mortimer

            Last Democrat…Clinton in ’92. I voted Libertarian in ’96, 2000, 2004, and then left the President choice blank in 2008 and 2012 as we had no third party choice in my state after 2004. Again, you do what you accuse others of doing which is making assumptions so as to sustain your own point of view. Can you just not accept that there are those who disagree with you without it being some partisan, ideological motivation?

          • Douglas Mortimer

            To further muddy the waters, I have voted Democrat in every US Senate race since 1996. House of Reps is a mixed bag. I have voted both Democrat and Republican for those seats, depending on the individual candidate.

          • legal eagle

            I like a good scandal as well as the next guy….The problem with scandals is that few have any real proof….The last great scandal was Iran- Contra….What did Reagan claim? Dementia? What did Bush claim? Nothing..he just perjured himself….

          • Douglas Mortimer

            The scandals you mention are indeed scandals. What I find intriguing is that, and I could be wrong, you only see scandals as being GOP problems. If a Dem does it, it isn’t a scandal at all. Truth be told, both parties have plenty of bodies buried in the proverbial back yard. That is all I am saying.

          • legal eagle

            Buried bodies do not make for a scandal….A sandal needs a victim, a violation of a law and a prosecution of some type….I haven’t seen any evidence of any great scandals in the Obama administration….If you believe every lie or misstatement made by a politician constitutes a “scandal” then we can agree to disagree…..

          • Douglas Mortimer

            I think that agreeing to disagree is our best option here. Having a substantive debate on a forum like this is next to impossible. Doing it over coffee or a few cold ones would be both more productive and pleasant. lol

          • John Daly

            You just completely redefined what a scandal is. lol. Do yourself a favor and look up the word. Dictionary.com is a great tool!

          • legal eagle

            My definition of scandal is either:
            a) Criminal conviction or:
            b) Kerry Washington’s show on ABC….

          • George Williams

            How about Weiner’s weener? Is that a scandal. Scandals are not restricted to prosecutable, but may just be immoral, amoral of just anti-social behavior. You just have low standards, legal beagle, as do most Democrats.

          • legal eagle

            Dems have had many interesting scandals…Clinton and Lewinsky was a good one…so was Charlie Rangel..so was Spitzer….

          • George Williams

            When the Justice Department is corrupt and covering for the president and his administration, there’s hardly a chance that any scandal will be exposed without a lot of time and effort on the part of Congress. Obama and his sycophants will be ignored when they continue to say that there’s no evidence, as people have come to the realization that this administration is corrupt and practiced in their deceit.

          • legal eagle

            So the Obama Justice Department but the Bush, Clinton, Bush and Reagan Justice departments weren’t. Tell me when the political opposition did not claim the Justice Department was corrupt?

          • George Williams

            Abraham Lincoln had people in his administration that were corrupt, but I don’s see how they have any bearing on this case. Try to use your argument in court and you’ll be laughed at. The DoJ will not give up anything on Fast and Furious, except for a ton of redacted paper. The DoJ is dragging their feet on the IRS scandal. The racists in the DoJ are known to ignore civil rights violations unless the victims are minorities. Tell me how Bush and Reagan’s DoJ were corrupt. Give me one instance.

          • legal eagle

            So, if you don’t have any evidence ie. Darrell Issa, you claim that there is evidence but you cant get it because the government wont give it to you?
            So the House Committee has no evidence of criminal conduct in the IRS “scandal”, no evidence of any criminal conspiracy in the Benghazi scandal etc. but you believe that Obama is guilty of something because you feel it in your gut?

          • George Williams

            When he Obama administration refuses to cooperate, as in any criminal investigation, the investigative body gets declare that the suspect has something to hide. Any rational person comes to that conclusion. On the other hand, the sycophantic supporters of Obama would never admit to that possibility. If the shoe were on the other foot, and there was as much circumstantial evidence as is currently available for these scandals, you Democrats and the media would try to put such obfuscation of the facts on the front page.

          • Bob Hadley

            In any criminal investigation, if the investigator does not get cooperation, he can make noise about the investigated having something to hide. But no responsible criminal investigator would say “We’re in the process of proving guilt or complicity” when he doesn’t currently have the evidence.
            It is very common for administrations of both parties to resist investigations. How long did GW Bush’s administration resist an investigation into 9/11?

          • George Williams

            Yes, and they had things to hide. Obama himself has declared that non cooperation is equivalent to an admission of concealment. The fact is that all the evidence is in the hands of the Executive Branch and no one is going to get it out of them unless people that branch cooperate. The government is premised on the idea that it is basically honest. When it has been corrupted as much as Obama’s, to include the DoJ, it is near impossible to call to account for its misdeeds.

          • Bob Hadley

            Another inartful evasion. You’re on a roll!

          • legal eagle

            Bush and Cheney refused to testify, under oath, to the 9/11 Commission…..Can you imagine if Obama puled a stunt like that? Bush claimed “executive privilege” all through the Plame investigation as well as the firing of the U.S. attorneys….Did you hear a peep from Fox News?

          • Bob Hadley

            If Pres. Bill Clinton or Pres. Obama or a future Pres. Hillary Clinton pulled half the stunts Pres. GW Bush pulled, they would be tarred and feathered.

          • legal eagle

            I can’t wait for Hillary’s election….The hateful old men on this site will need to up their blood pressure meds…

          • legal eagle

            I think George Williams has been watching too many Law & Order segments…The accused is supposed to cooperate? What country does he live in?

          • George Williams

            The Executive Branch is supposed to be a friend of the court, not the defendant. Your not much of a lawyer, are you? I guess that’s too much to ask of the Obama administration.

          • legal eagle

            George…c’mon…These “investigations” are not court proceedings….No White House is a “friend” of a Congressional hearing….Stop making absurd arguments..

          • legal eagle

          • legal eagle

            As the late great Clara Peller said “Show Me the Beef”….The prosecution has to produce evidence not claim they don’t have evidence because the other side was uncooperative….Issa hasn’t produced enough evidence to make his case…He has a large staff and subpoena power…. Let me know when he produces something worth getting excited over…

          • George Williams

            I suspect that we won’t have to wait long, but unfortunately the DoJ will refuse to prosecute. What will you say when the House has the goods on Obama but the DoJ refuses to prosecute? Your reaction will be a test of your own integrity. Will it be crickets, or outrage. You have so much invested in Obama that I believe that it will be the former.

          • legal eagle

            Prosecute Obama? for what?

          • George Williams

            The IRS scandal has already reached the White House in the form of an Obama appointee/Democratic operative who interfered in the processing of IRS applications of Tea Party and other conservatives for political gain. It wouldn’t surprise me if he threw Obama under the bus..

          • George Williams

            One scandal obvious to everyone is the fact that Obama usurped the power of the Senate to determine its rules on when it is in session. The courts declared that Obama made illegal appointments while the Senate was legally in session. No other president has had so little respect for the separation of powers.

      • lark2

        Bob, A member of the mainstream media with an ounce of courage did “blow the whistle on all the news manipulation … “.

  • BenDoubleCrossed

    Giant media corporations are allowed to raise and spend unlimited amounts of money influencing the political process because their political communications are said to have no value. But what is the difference between a slanted new story or editorial and a political ad?

    Where in the Constitution is the authority to make political coordination a crime and by what logic do campaign laws make it one?

    Amendment 1: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    On Wikipedia lookup the words:

    “Assembly”: “Freedom of assembly, the individual right to come together and collectively express, promote, pursue and defend common interests.

    “Association”: “Voluntary associations, groups of individuals who voluntarily enter into an agreement to accomplish a purpose.” 501(c) non-profit organization is given as an example.

    “Coordination”: “Coordination is the act of coordinating, making different people or things work together for a goal or effect to fulfill desired goals in an organization. Coordination is a managerial function in which different activities of the business are properly adjusted and interlinked.”

    In all walks of life coordination is admired.

    In sports lack of it means losing!

    An orchestra needs coordination to avoid dissonance.

    Dance troops achieve grace thru coordination and teamwork.

    In business departments and employees coordinate to make money.

    In hospitals doctors, nurses and lab techs coordinate to save lives.

    Why do federal campaign laws make coordination between candidates and like minded citizens a crime?

    Only our dysfunctional and grid locked government discourages teamwork, coordination and efficient organization.

    How much do mains stream media spend each year pushing their political agenda in coordination with the liberals? Americans spend 7 billion a year on potato chips. Is 8 billion for elections really too much money?

    Despite the fact the 1st Amendment forbids Congress from writing laws that abridge our freedoms of speech, press and assembly, unconstitutional campaign laws abridge all three.

    • Drew Page

      You can thank McCain-Finegold for that. This was supposed to be “campaign finance reform”. Instead, what it did was prevent associations of like minded individuals from buying air time on TV and radio networks to support candidates running against incumbent politicians 60 days prior to elections, thereby giving incumbents unfair advantage. Yet the bill did nothing to stop union contributions flowing in to support their candidates.

    “With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals,” the president said, “Washington has taken its eye off the ball.” –

    This is nothing new in Washington. It’ s been going on since the swamp was dried up to create the city. Unfortunately, Obama did not take the time to learn all the ins and outs of DC politics while in the Senate. He was more interested in the ‘position’ of being President. He wasn’t really interested in the ‘job.’

  • Brian Fr Langley

    Since the left has come to believe their own lies, that since they alone are the salvation of the middle class and the poor, their ends always justify their means. And they are in good company. The Fascist’s and the Marxist’s that killed tens of millions during the 20th century felt the same way. I on the other hand humbly submit, you either have the rule of law, or you have chaos, (followed by destruction). I suspect most on the hard left actually agree with me, yet still remain undaunted, as they see chaos and destruction, as a necessity in bringing about their statist, collectivist goals, and bringing down an opposing traditional America.

  • AgentofACORN

    The Benghazi non-scandal was created by the Fox “News” Channel as part of their ongoing war against President Obama. No one was ordered to stand down and no one was abandoned to die.
    The IRS scandal sputtered and stopped because as the facts started to come in, it became increasingly apparent that there was nothing to it. Add to that Darrell Issa’s grandstanding and you have another non scandal.
    Fast and Furious was okay when the Bush Administration was doing it.
    The New Black Panthers never intimidated anyone except those who are usually scared when they see black people anywhere.
    The only legitimate point here is the targeting of journalists, even those who are not actually journalists because they work for a propaganda network such as Fox (that is not a dig at Bernie. He is one of the only real journalists working with Fox). The problem is that a real issue such as this gets lost under the sheer weight of the phony scandals created by the conservative media.

    You can only cry “FOX” so many times before people start dismissing everything.

    • John Daly

      >>The Benghazi non-scandal was created by the Fox “News” Channel as part of their ongoing war against President Obama.

      Why stop at Fox News? These non-scandals were clearly orchestrated at the VERY top. I’m talking about that secret society of the five wealthiest people in the world, known as the Pentavirate, who run everything in the world and meet tri-annually at a secret country

        Lol. During the 2012 campaign, didn’t Fox declare itself the voice of opposition to President Obama? FNC was practically co-counsel for George Zimmerman. FNC was a co-sponsor of the Tea Party rallies. It was campaign headquarters for George W Bush and Mitt Romney (though I have to admit, the smackdown Megyn Kelly gave Karl Rove on election night was almost as hilarious as Rove’s on-air meltdown with Chris Wallace) Fox put so much effort into running the GOP. Why are you so ashamed to acknowledge that?

        One of my favorite episodes of the Simpsons was the one where Mayor Quimby became embroiled in yet another scandal and the national media came to cover it. Kent Brockman noted all the reality based media outlets that had arrived and then announced with great fanfare the arrival of the Fox “News” bus: Queen’s ‘We are the Champions’ started playing. The bus came into view with a small Fox “News” logo and draped across the side of the bus was a giant banner that read “Bush/Cheney 2004″.

        That truly sums up the Fox “News” Channel, doesn’t it?

          While I do appreciate the smorgasbord of misquotes, false assertions, and amusing, left-wing propaganda, I do feel inclined to warn you that The Meadows does not take kindly to such posts. They’re very powerful, even after Colonel Sanders’ death, and they can wrap you in just as many phony scandals as they did President Obama.

          I’ve already said to much…

          • AgentofACORN

            I’ll go slowly this time. All the scandals either manufactured or embellished by the conservative media has made if difficult for the low information viewers of Fox to distinguish between reality and the Fox alternaverse. The real scandal, the James Rosen one, has gotten lost amidst the phony ones.

          • John Daly

            But as Bernie described in his column, these scandals weren’t phony at all.

            I don’t disagree that the conservative media has led the charge on exposing them. That’s only because the rest of the media refuses to do their jobs.

            The mainstream media OBSESSED over stories like Plamegate and the firing of judges under Bush. Neither of those rose to the importance of Benghazi, the IRS, and AP/James Rosen. They didn’t even come close.

            All I expect of the mainstream media is to cover the Obama presidency with just as much scrutiny as they did the Bush presidency. Isn’t that fair?

          • AgentofACORN

            Yes, the majority of these scandals are phony. The conservative media invented the Benghazi “scandal” out of whole cloth. It’s not that the rest of the media isn’t doing their job, it’s that their job is not to perpetuate fiction created by the conservative media.

            If you expect the reality-based media to cover Obama the way they did Bush, why don’t you have the reverse expectation? Shouldn’t Fox cover the Obama administration with the same kid gloves they did the Bush administration? Rupert Murdoch himself stated that Fox spun coverage of the Iraq war President Bush’s way.

            While I agree that the reality-based media gave the same kind of breathless coverage to the attorney firings that the conservative media has to Benghazi and the IRS (all three non-scandals), Plamegate was a proper scandal. Dick Cheney outed Valerie Plame and had Scooter Libby take the fall for it.

            My point is this: Much like the boy who cried Wolf, when Fox cries Benghazi! and IRS! and Bill Ayers! and New Black Panthers!, and there’s nothing there, when Fox cries AP/James Rosen! no one is going to take it seriously due to all the time Fox has tried to pin phony scandals on the administration

        • JmThms

          What an idiot. Aren’t the media supposed to be the ‘watchdogs of government’? Funny how that works. When a Republican is in office the MSM loves to emphasize that. When a Democrat – especially a liberal symbol such as the first ‘black’ President – is not office then suddenly the watchdog turns into a lapdog. LOL. You’re a lying liberal and you know it.

          • AgentofACORN

            What an idiot. Aren’t the media supposed to be the ‘watchdogs of government’? Funny how that works. When a Democrat is in office Fox “News” loves to emphasize that.

    • JmThms

      Complete BS. Benghazi is a multifaceted scandal of lack of action and lying about it after the fact for political reasons. Fact is fact. The IRS scandal is a serious political scandal that at least goes as high as the IRS legal counsel – a political appointee. Despite you libs initially trying to pin it down to ‘just a few rogue agents’ it has risen to Washington. Funny how you claim Fox News is a propaganda network when for generations the main stream media has been a liberal propaganda machine. In fact, that long-standing fact is the reason for Fox’s success. Truth hurts but it never-the-less is fact.

      • AgentofACORN

        Fox “News” is a propaganda network. That’s not even up for debate. The whole Benghazi non-scandal was created by FNC for political reasons. The IRS non-scandal was investigated by Darrell Issa and he pretty much gave it up once the facts came in..there is nothing there. Prior to the arrival of Fox “News”, there was no partisan news. The myth of the liberal media was created by conservatives as a scapegoat according to no less a conservative luminary than Bill Kristol. The reason for Fox’s success is a quote that is normally attributed to PT Barnum. I’m sure you know it.

    Whoever came up with that line has done “right thinking” Americans a huge favor. Soetorobama and Con Carney (meat-head) have given the families of the fallen (& everyone else) the middle finger salute. That is unforgivable. What’s really “phony” is Soetorobama’s long form BC (etc) claiming that he was born in Hawaii. There are so many flaws in that creation that it takes a while to explain… So what we have here is a “phony president” pretending that real scandals don’t exist except in the minds of political adversaries. That’s typical BS from king of the con men. It’s time to take the best 10 impeachable offenses and put THAT on the table, if congress can grow a set… It’s still very disturbing to hear the Indonesian candidate referred to as “president”, but outside of that, another good article Bernie.

  • gbandy

    I note the media is talking more now about the comment of Obama rather than the real issue and that is the real scandals. Obama is a master of deflection and distraction. Obama also has millions of clueless followers who now agree all the “Scandals are phony”. These many scandals show Obama is corrupt and if you have above room temperature IQ’s you know they all started at the Whitehouse. You do not plead the 5th if nothing wrong.

    • legal eagle

      What “scandal” led its way to the White House? Get a clue….

      • gbandy

        OK what about Obama and Hillary stating for weeks the attack on Benghazi was caused by a “Video”? Why did Obama send Rice to lie on TV? Why did Obama/Hillary talk “video” when all the emails, messages, phone conversations, and Military all tell of attack and we need help? Innocent IRS officials do not need to plead the 5th and the Obama appointee looks to be the instigator of the IRS scandal. Well you must be totally oblivious to reality.

        • KAG505

          When the first reports started coming in, there had already been reports of
          demonstrations in other areas that were being reported as in response to the
          video.

          • StanW

            Obama claimed for weeks after the attack that it is in response to a video. Yet he also claimed that he immediately called the attack ‘terrorism’.

            Both cannot be true.

          • Wil

            Weeks? I don’t think so. Stop your lying!

          • StanW

            Weeks, as in more than one week. Are you disputing that the President went more than one week calling the attack a protest?

          • Wil

            He stated ‘terrorism’ on day one!

          • StanW

            No, he did not. He make a vague reference to ACTS of terror. But he did spend the next two weeks calling it a spontaneous demonstration.

            So tell me at what point he lied.

          • John Daly

            Nope!

            “Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe,” he said. “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.”

          • Bob Hadley

            “Both cannot be true”
            Of course it can be both!!!!!!
            It was obviously a terrorist attack. Was the terrorist attach their The terrorists) idea of vengeance for that video? It’s possible, but the terrorist attach appears to have been planned in advance of the video’s publication.

          • Jeff Webb

            The video angle involved SPONTANEOUS protests that escalated to violence, not a thoroughly planned assault with military firepower, so no, it cannot be both.

            It’s remarkable how you apologists still think the administration did nothing wrong. From before, during, and after the attack, this was as disgraceful a display from the people in power as any in American history.

          • Bob Hadley

            First, I never said that the administration did nothing wrong.
            Second, It could have been both. It could have been a spontaneous demonstration that was hijacked by terrorists who had a pre-planned mission. Either way, what the administration did wrong, if anything, still needs to come out.
            It’s amazing how many right-wingers are so emotional that they can’t think straight.

          • Bob Hadley

            ” From before, during, and after the attack, this was as disgraceful a display from the people in power as any in American history.”
            Actually, as tragic as it was, the Benghazi mess (assuming the Obama administration bumbled, which it may have) was NOT the most disgraceful in American history.
            A far more disgraceful display from the people in power, was The GW Bush administration’s dastardly propaganda campaign to invade Iraq.
            Even if you still support the invasion, any thinking and informed American surely sees that the process legitimizing it before-the-fact was rotten to the core.

          • StanW

            No, they are not both true, especially since Obama admitted he knew FROM DAY ONE that it was a terrorist attack. Yet he spent more than two weeks telling the world it was a spontaneous demonstration caused by a video.

            He Lied, Clinton Lied.

          • Bob Hadley

            I was addressing your claim that the Benghazi attack CANNOT be both a terrorist attack AND a response to the video. It certainly can! A response to the video is not necessarily a spontaneous demonstration. And even a spontaneous demonstration can morph into a terrorist attack.

          • StanW

            You are kidding, right. Are you so locked into defending Obama no matter what that you are willing to put your own integrity aside and OPENLY LIE about what happened?

            Obama lied, repeatedly.

          • Bob Hadley

            “He Lied, Clinton Lied.”
            Don’t you mean Obama lied. Pres. Clinton was the one you were supposed to focus all your hatred and bitterness on during the 1990s. President Obama is the one who you are currently supposed to focus all your hatred and bitterness on.
            Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I see! You’re talking about Hillary Clinton, in anticipation that she might become president in 2016?

            You’re obviously so emotional that you have a loss of reading comprehension. Read my posts again. I haven’t said what did happen at Benghazi other that that it was a terrorist attack and that it appears to have been planned. How did I lie?

          • StanW

            Obama and HILLARY Clinton both claimed that Benghazi was
            A) A spontaneous demonstration that turned into an attack
            B) A pre-planned terrorist attack.

            Both of those things cannot be true. So did they lie about A, or about B?

          • Bob Hadley

            You’re so emotional that you can’t think straight.
            Benghazi could have started out as a demonstration but then was hijacked by terrorists who had pre-planned an attack.
            Yes, the Obama administration – including Hillary – could have been at fault. Yes, they could have even lied. I’m still waiting for all the pertinent facts to come out.
            I bet you get your panties in a bunch when someone says that Pres. GW Bush lied.

          • StanW

            Obama and Clinton claimed for two weeks that Benghazi was a demonstration. When they got called on it, the changed their story and claimed that they said it was terrorism the whole time. THEY LIED!

            And when people claim that Bush lied about something, I ask them to prove it. That generally shuts them up!

          • Bob Hadley

            The question was whether Benghazi was a spontaneous demo that morphed into a terrorist attach or whether terrorists hijack the demo with a preplanned terrorist attach. You’re much too quick to sling accusations at Pres. Obama and Hillary Clinton. Let’s wait for all the pertinent facts to come out, and let the chips – or the axe – fall.
            As for Pres. GW Bush, whether he lied depends on what your definition of “is” is. Similarly, do a used car salesmen lie or do they really believe their cherry-picked info.
            Did Pres. Bush really believe that Sadam had an active nuclear weapons program and that he was CURRENTLY amassing chemical and biological WMD?
            Yes, we all know that intelligence orgs generally thought that Sadam had chemical and biological agents leftover from before the first Gulf War. But did Pres. Bush really think he was currently amassing his collection of chemical and biological agents?????

          • StanW

            Bob, Obama and Hillery told two different and opposite stories about Benghazi. They cannot POSSIBLY both be true.

            As far as Bush goes, nearly every intelligence organization in the world thought Saddam had WMD, including our own. I guess you are referring to comments like these that the President made…
            One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.

            If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.

            Are these the types of “lies” you are talking about, Bob???

          • Bob Hadley

            StanW, You’re obviously so emotional that your reading comprehension is impaired. Read my post again. I stopped short of saying that Pres. Bush lied. He did a sell job, just like a used car salesman. Was it a lie? it depends on what your definition of “is” is.
            Again, intelligence orgs generally thought that Sadam had chemical and biological agents left over from before the first Gulf War. But the Bush administration went much further.
            Pres. Bush and his minions gave the line that Sadam was ACTIVELY AMASSING (i.e. was in the process of enhancing) his stock pile of chemical and biological agents..
            Further, Pres. Bush stated that Sadam had an active nuclear program. (Remember the line about “the smoking gun may be in the form of a mushroom cloud”.)
            I suggest that you read these posts several times before you emote.

          • StanW

            You compared President Bush to a used-car salesman, and you have the gall to criticize me for ‘reading comprehension’???

            But you have already answered the question, Bob. You think that Bush lied about WMD in Iraq, but that Obama and Hillary told the truth about Benghazi.

            You are just another pathetic Liberal partisan HACK. Thanks for admitting it!

          • bob hadley

            You’re so emotional that you can’t see straight. The one thing you got correct I DID compare Pres. GW Bush and his crew to used car salesmen in their techniques for selling the Iraq invasion on the American people. They cherry-picked the intelligence and disregarded intelligence that opposed their narrative that Sadam was currently in the process of building up his chemical and biological weapons arsenal and that he had an active nuclear weapons program that might result in “a mushroom cloud.” What does that have to do with reading comprehension????????

            I did NOT, however, say that Pres. Obama and/or Hillary Clinton told the truth about Benghazi. I said we don’t yet know.

            I also divulged that if Jeb Bush runs in ’16 I might reexamine my support for Hillary. Does that sound like a partisan hack?

            Either your emotions have rendered you a dim-wit or you’re being dishonest. I suspect both. Get a grip!

          • StanW

            “They cherry-picked the intelligence and disregarded intelligence that opposed their narrative that Sadam was currently in the process of building up his chemical and biological weapons arsenal and that he had an active nuclear weapons program that might result in “a mushroom cloud.”
            That is a lie and you know it, Bob.

            So you defend Obama, call Bush a liar, and you claim that you are NOT a partisan hack? Typical.

            The quotes I provided to you earlier are clear examples that you are lying.

          • Bbo Hadley

            You’re are swinging wildly, like a fighter who’s lost all hope but lurches forward anyway.
            The above-quote from my earlier post is the truth. Review some of the tapes of the speeches and interviews given by Pres. GW Bush and his minions leading up to the Iraq invasion..
            I did NOT defend Pres. Obama on the Benghazi tragedy. I said wait until all the facts emerge. I did NOT call Pres. GW Bush a liar. I stopped short of that. After all, he was on a crusade. As with most crusaders, he might well have believed what he said was true. He did NOT know that what he said was NOT true. But, if he stopped to really think about it, he would have realized that he was drawing unwarranted conclusions.
            Are all these nuances giving you a headache or do you just read past them?
            Now, take a deep breath and read my post several more times. Eventually you’ll comprehend what I say.

            I comprehended what you said when you started Bob. Let me condense it down for you.

          • Bob Hadley

            “Blame Bush, Absolve Obama”
            Your problem (or, perhaps, one of your problems) is that you see things in extremes. Either someone totally agrees with you or he totally disagrees with you. Either someone is a total toady for Pres. GW Bush (as you apparently are), or he hates everything about him. Either someone hates Pres. Obama (as you apparently do) or he worships him.
            I happen to very critical of Pres. GW Bush in some areas, and in other I think he did well. Likewise with Pres. Obama. I generally support him, but I’m also critical of him. That’s something you apparently don’t understand.

          • StanW

            No, that is something you didn’t bother to explain.

            You criticize Bush as a used car salesman and a man on a crusade, while you can’t even bring yourself to criticize Obama and Clinton for their bald-faced lies on Benghazi.

            You can continue to twist my words and make more pathetic attempt to seem reasonable, but I see through your BS, and so does anyone reading these posts.

            I was very critical of both Clintons during the mid and late 1990s, even though I basically supported Pres. Clinton. Again, you’re stuck in the either/or mode.
            As for the Benghazi episode, I’m waiting for all the pertinent facts to emerge. I have no problem criticizing either Pres. Obama or Hillary when warranted.
            Your slogan is “Obama lied, Bush could do no wrong”

  • beniyyar

    Bernie, Obama has another several years to drive America into ruin and he knows that his time is running out. If Obama deals with the corruption in his administration, he will waste some of his limited time on these scandals and he has important work left to do in finishing his destruction of the American economy. Obama knows full well that after he leaves office his successor will have to try to pick up the pieces of the smashed economy he and his cronies will leave behind and the next President will have a terrible time trying to fix it. This may well even be Obama’s master plan, that is, he inherited an economy in terrible shape and has been bitterly criticized for his failure to correct it, so maybe he wants to leave behind even a bigger economic mess to get revenge on his critics!

    • legal eagle

          You sure about that? ;)

            Ted, you may be correct. It seems like Racist and Hater is all they have to any argument against the
            administration.

            Oh, and not to forget, Bitter Old White guy….

            Yeah, that appears to be the catchphrase of the day. lol.

    Yet again, the Mainstream media allows Obama to spout these blatant untruths without calling him on it. Even the AP, which was a victim of one of those “phony” scandals remains silent.

    • legal eagle

      How would you know what’s in the media when all you read and listen to is right wing media?

      • KAG505

        Listening to Alan Colmes and those on MSNBC is better than reality?

        • legal eagle

          When I want the news I read the newspapers….When I need to laugh I watch Fox and CNBC….

    This Phony in Chief (Fraud in Chief is more appropriate given the fraudulent documents enabling him to remain as POTUS) has been ruling for nearly 5 years now. Why do you leave the door open for “giving him slack?” For every one possible good adventure this man may do he has ten horrible adventures. Please no more damn slack. Making as statement like “phony scandals” should be the straw the breaks the Fraud in Chief’s back. There is NO hope for this man.

    I predicted a while back right here at this blog that all these scandals would have their day and the sun and because the Republicans are never willing to bring a “gun” to a fight they fail miserably and the scandals fade away. If the Democrats were running the show with these scandals facing a Republican the Republican President and his Attorney General would have been long gone.

    We are reaping the consequences of a secular humanist radical progressive public higher education system influence on journalism. We are witnessing how a free press that has been infected with such radicalism destroys the purpose of what it means to have a free press. There is no “fair and balanced” journalism. Under this corrupted system Democrats will always get away with “murder” and Republicans are held accountable.

    All that being said, there is ONE scandal that can bring this Fraud in Chief to his knees in humiliation and has the potential to shed light on how far the radical progressive thugs from Chicago will go to create a power structure able to destroy a nation. I have been talking about this scandal of the century for more than a year now and folks like Bernie and Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity and all the folks at Fox enterprises have been order to ignored. Almost all of the conservative blogs and web pages and journalist have run from this scandal. I challenge anyone to take a serious educated look at the evidence life long career criminal investigators have discovered concerning the fraudulent activity of Barack H. Obama and tell me that all of it is bogus. Anyone??

    You should ask yourself, WHAT ARE THEY AFRAID OF?

    • legal eagle

      Another brilliant thought from a bitter old white guy…. They are afraid that bitter old people like yourself will have a stroke and cost Medicare a lot of money…

      • KAG505

        As Ronald Reagan would have said “Well, there you go again.”

        • DonaldYoungsRevenge

          And I will go again and again and again. It takes that kind of endurance to get the dumb and the blind to pay attention. We have to confront corruption every step of the way. I despise folks who know the fraud this man has committed and refuse to say or do anything about it. They make me sick to my stomach. I especially despise those who comment about the subject at hand knowing full well they haven’t spent much time looking at the evidence. Shameless!!

      • DonaldYoungsRevenge

        There is nothing bitter about me. I looked at the evidence and am convinced that what the two year criminal investigation of Obama has produced is overwhelming and needs to be further investigated. No one should be allowed to get away with a forged birth certificate, a fraudulent selective service registration and an E-verified fraudulent flagged SS#, white, black or yellow. The man is a Phony and a Fraud and you don’t seem to give a crap. Shame on you.

    • Bloviating Ignoramus

      What about Trump who sent his team of investigators to Hawaii? Then not a peep from him either. No doubt they have Trump locked up somewhere and they created a body double of him, just like they did for Jesse The NoBody Ventura? And the SCOTUS right wingers Scalia, Thomas, Alito, Roberts? Also body doubles since they declined Orly Taitz lawsuit? You better watch out bro. It will happen to you too.

      • DonaldYoungsRevenge

        Trump just wanted the headlines for the moment while he was thinking about throwing is sorry ass into the Presidential race. You cannot name one “investigator” Trump sent to Hawaii. Orly Taitz is a hundred fold more of a patriot than any of those in the conservative media. She does have an active case and she does have a whistle blower who has documents that prove Barry Soetoro was a registered Indonesian citizen at Occidental.
        We will have to see where that goes. There is another case pending at the Alabama Supreme Court with Chief Justice Roy More hearing the case, that may have some significance down the road. Attorney Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch, is involved in that case. The guts of the fraud cases rests in the hands of Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Lt. Mike Zullo who have been invited to Washington DC to visit with high ranking Congresspersons showing them the evidence they have collected in their criminal investigation. There is a lot about to happen concerning the fraud and criminal activity. It sounds like you haven’t been keeping up with the investigation, did you give up?

        • Bloviating Ignoramus

          They got you too didn’t they!? I knew it!!

    • Bloviating Ignoramus

      Haven’t heard a peep out of Orly Taitz either come to think of it. Oh no they got Orly too!

  • melanerpes

    The trouble with Obama’s “phony scandals” play is that he must leave it to the Jack Lews and the Jay Carneys to do the more specific lying. He’s kind of boxed in that way.

  • Bill Wickens

    U r right on as usual. POTU has proven time and again his disdain for American historical values. His background as Community Organizer is riddled with Communist and Socialist ideological tentacles. He has history of being backed by both Communist and Socialist adherents. Advisers like Axelrod with family ties to the Communist Party and Democratic Socialists of America aka DSA have kept him in the loving arms of most of the Progressive aka Socialist media.
    Their ultimate goal is the demise of American values and the rise of Socialist amorality and financial medeocracy.

    • AgentofACORN

      Sadly, there’s not one true statement in anything you wrote here, but I know you believe it wholeheartedly. The question is: why do you believe this fiction when there’s no factual evidence to support it?

  • golfmax13

    The White House has been in their four corner since the first reprimand of the first term. I’ve always believed that the truth would eventually come out, no matter what – but now I’m not so sure. I’m almost 60 and I have never seen a low down bunch of no account, soulless, corrupt administration as Obama’s administration. I couldn’t have dreamed it, it’s that far fetched.

    The Dems think we run around saying the sky is falling but with Obama — the sky is falling.

    • legal eagle

      More insight from the bitter old white man wing of the Republican Party…

      • KAG505

        Anyone else notice that when telling the truth about the goings on in the white house, the obamabots describe EVERYONE as a bitter old white man. That’s because it’s the only argument they have. Other than blaming everything on W, but he has been gone for 5 years now and what has been happening rests in barrys lap.

        • legal eagle

          I don’t describe everyone as bitter old white men….Only those it applies to….The best argument I have is to point out your hypocrisy….You didn’t appear to disagree with or oppose Bush when he approved warrantless wiretapping…But when a Dem does it it’s a scandal….You didn’t have a problem with Bush ignoring NSA and FBI briefings regarding terrorist attacks in August 2001 but you go crazy about Benghazi….
          I am pointing out your hypocrisy…..I will assume you don’t like it pointed out because you can’t defend your hypocrisy…Keep listening/watching O’Reilly, Limbaugh and Beck for further marching orders…

          • KAG505

            You didn’t seem to mind when holder gave the finger to the Congress when they held him in contempt over HIS fast and furious debacle, then gets the Attorney General in D.C. to brush it under the rug. You don’t seem to mind when barry produces a document proven by many, ignored by those who want to ignore it, to be a forgery, which should have been enough for impeachment. You didn’t seem to mind when there has been assorted stories as to the Benghazi incident, which changeg by the hour. You didn’t seem to mind when the secretary of state yelled WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE when asked about the Benghazi situation. You didn’t seem to mind that the president declared a halt on numerous activities all over the nation because the government was short of money then takes a hundred million dollar vacation to Africa. And please do not tell me about Bush going to his ranch in Texas. Those trips did not cost a hundred million dollars. You don’t seem to mind that there are more people out of work on welfare than ever before. Don’t blame that on Bush either as he has been gone for the last 5 years.
            And if you want to classify me as a bitter old white man, then fine, because I certainly am, after seeing this fool we have in the white house drive the greatest country on the face of the earth into the toilet, and people like YOU applaud that activity.

    The most disgusting part of this is the MSM, low-information voter (AKA politically apathetic Americans) lap this stuff up and tout every word as gospel. The media is supposed to be the watchdog for the public, not the enabler for government cover up.

    • DonaldYoungsRevenge

      The media turned for the worse when Slick stated that “he didn’t inhale” and they allowed all those sexual escapades of Slick go on as if they never happened. The media were the prostitutes.
