Well, we have Benghazi, the Justice Dept./AP affair, and Sibelius kinda sorta shaking down the insurance companies that she's going to help regulate ( nice insurance company you have there. Be too bad if something bad happened to it. BTW - you didn't build that). That's enough to keep several news organizations busy.
And if anyone feels left out or was a bit slow out of the gate on these latest revelations, there's always Fast and Furious which could use a revisiting and some real digging ...

There are those that think quantity, no matter the validity, replaces quality.

I just wanted to bring that up.

May I suggest "Blame It on Barack Obama"  to the tune of "Blame it on the Bossa Nova" 

 

It should be a huge hit especially with those who still suffer from the rash of wearing their Bush Supporter too long.

Well, the blame on bush seems to have lasted for about 13 years now. It's time for a new model.

Sorry Saorsa, forgot about that one in all the hurly-burly.
I'm not going to the birthplace thing - I figure some last-to-the-table reporter will resurrect it in a few months when some other stuff starts to stick and maybe a few folks do the perp walk.
I do not agree with many of the present admin's policies and think that the President is far too ideologically driven ( by philosophies I find unsettling) but a full bore impeachment and conviction followed by removal would be bad for the country. Far better that the perps be ousted and the truly guilty punished appropriately and that he spend his declining days in office as an example of hubris. Followed by a quiet exit to an ignored retirement. He's still_probably_ better than "President Biden" and may indeed be depending on that to save himself.

Of course if the republicans can dig up enough stuff on Joe and strip him off like Agnew ...

The above of course depends on how irritAted the MSM are with the IRS and AP phone records things. The press selected and elected Obama, but have been feeling neglected of late. If he's willing to give some pressers and deign to kiss a few whatevers they'll likely make up n

Dingdingdingding! Just a few polls in and we hear _that_ fleer.

What do you call it when a government agency selectively targets a group for harassment? If it's Jewish conservative and pro-Israel groups that's anti-Semitism and (wait for it...)

When policy panders to the same small audience, expect people to notice.  The Benghazi circus isn't about making diplomats safer, that investigation and report was done long ago.  This silliness is about pandering to roughly the same audience that thought (thinks?) Obummer is a Kenyan, and that demanding that he release his original birth certificate after he had long-since released a copy was an appropriate request.   

 

AP issue?  Could be a scandal.  IRS?  Could be a scandal.  Benghazi ver. 2013?  Circus act.

And Obama's the one wearing the size 26 red shoes.

 

I agree that nothing being discussed right now has anything to do with security.  Hopefully some valuable lessons were learned.  At this point it is about the administration lying about what hapenned and why.

 

Do you think there should be a statute of limitations on situations like this?  A point at which if a lie hasn't been found out we should simply give a president a pass?  That seems like it would encourage future presidents to lie even more than they have in the past.

Obama's been very good at deflection, but will he be able to juggle this many crises at once?  Time will tell.

 

Some of his pals in the media don't seem too keen on turning a blind eye and as things heat up even more I would expect to see some of his friends on the Hill distance themselves to try and survive the midterms.

You see, I think its a devious plan.

Put all these bullshit scandals out so the GOP gets distracted while they (Obama and his minions) work on really bad stuff.

Let the loons scream, while the real work continues.  total smoke screen.

Its brilliant I say.  Brilliant.

Like the Inspector General, the Oversight Committee has been denied access to individuals and documents, but the problem is that they keep asking, not the lack of sunshine, huh?

The current story is the lawsuit over that power struggle. Update here:

The question is - is he as good as Clinton was at dealing with the manufactured crisis and bogus fabricated scandals?

 

Hopefully better, because I was disappointed how time much Clinton dealing with Newt's political schemes instead of running the country.

 It's not winning the competition for coverage anymore. Displaced by some pretty silly stuff too. Not sure if that is meaningful or not, it's hard to imagine FOX going over to the Dark Side.

If I saw a lot of folks quoting scripture to make a point, that might be good.

 

Unfortunately, nobody is doing that.  Seems the atheists want to argue against a point nobody is raising.
