Interesting that how an almost completely liberal administration , senate -congress in America right now is in firing squad mode , The problem is -they seem to be standing in a circle ! How far will it go ?
I suspect that at this time we are only seeing the tip of this iceberg. More details will surface as time goes by, and some who will end up under the bus will start talking about things they have been silent about until now. These type things can only go on for so long before there is a giant implosion.
What is sad is that evidence of the character, competency and integrity of this administration were on full display during the first 4 years, amply evident during the election, yet only when it becomes too overwhelming for anyone to ignore, do some open their eyes to it. Being able to say "I told you so" rings empty and worthless amid the damage done to our country, both internally and internationally. If you are only measuring the magnitude of the influence, without regard to benefit or detriment, this will certainly be a significantly historic legacy.
You mean with his approval rating rising? Hmmm yeah sounds like the "I told you so" is simply false rather than just hollow.
Still turning a blind eye to the handwriting on the wall? Your tenacity is admirable, but you may find the course increasingly difficult. Admire your imagination of the emperor's fine clothes while you can. Then again, who knows? I couldn't believe so many could be so foolish during the last election, and yet they were.
They need to put Obama in the middle of the circle on a rotating base and everybody point fingers. 'Cause at least then, even if Obama's pointing at everyone else, everyone else will be pointing at him too; he's the head guy (Obama) who has caused all the carp that's hitting the fan now.
His first term legacy is already pretty amazing.
Go ahead and keep demanding Obama's head on a platter.
It won't happen.
And if, by some infinitely minute chance it did, you get Joe Biden.
Just keep this in mind:
No matter what Obama does, no matter how bad things get, and no matter what happens these next 3 years...he would still be a better President than Mitt Romney.
Forget Obama, let's open up IRS records. I am sure there is plenty of corruption that could be divulged. Under every administration, the IRS has pretty much been an unquestionable authority. They will not even reveal the exact law demanding an income tax. With a huge reward available, no one collected.
$300,000 Income Tax Reward
Freedom Law School is offering $100,000 to the first person who can demonstrate any of the three propositions listed below. The winner can collect up to $300,000 if he or she can prove all of the propositions below.
1. Show what statute written by the Congress of the United States that requiring Americans to file an income tax “CONFESSION” (return) and pay an income tax.
2. Show how Americans can file an income tax “CONFESSION” (return) without giving up their 5th amendment right to not give any information to the government that may be used to prosecute them.
3. Prove that the 16th amendment to the United States Constitution, which, according to the IRS and modern American courts permitted the income tax to exist was lawfully added to the United States Constitution.

Should be an easy reward to collect? At least for an IRS expert.
Once the people realize what their government is capable of doing to them, they will demand more transparency. Everyone hates and fears the IRS. Politicians on the right and left have career making opportunities readily available, and the longer it goes on the bigger the politicians names will get, it is going to be a feeding frenzy. I am proud of my (D) Massachusetts reps on the investigating committee.
IMO, this will not touch Obama at all, especially if he starts campaigning against the corruption himself.
Chris Matthews, Jon Stewart are out of their minds angry. Even the media are licking their chops at this. It is all quite the drama. This could be bigger than the Casey Anthony trial! Reality TV its best.
Reality , Can you explain the significance of this on the local and state level , where we pay far more to the tax man ? And the controls are further from our hands ! Just asking . IT seems we are focusing on the fed level , how do we change this locally ?
Well, if we can get average America away from their foozeball games and soap operas long enough to care about the status of government, we could create a new national pasttime. Revealing government corruption at all levels. We know America loves reality tv, we know America loves a good trial, we just need to combine the two, placing government in the defendants seat.
So the truth is becoming transparent ..? Eric the with(holder) ha sbeen exposed as the crookedest of the bunch..!
The corruption of this administration reeks and has been there from the start...
The Face of "Chicago Politics" has seen the light of transparency...
Obama is a buffoon..... and has been hoodwinked.... by his political cronies..
Now he is being protected by the media for his "Incompentance".
His terms will be looked at as the most corrupt... wasted time in American politics since Jimmy Carter..
Although it might not be known for few years, I'd wager that this administration goes down in history as one of the most corrupt....ever.
I wouldn't disagree with this at all. But it is a little bit like going to the city dump and trying to figure out which bag of garbage stinks the most. The truth is that they all stink. This administration just made the mistake of getting caught.
If that is their goal, they set a high bar indeed!
The American public must realize that the problem is not Democrat versus Republican...those are simply organizations. The problem comes down to liberal or conservative. In the current state of affairs, those on the more liberal side have been highjacked by the progressives who have no belief structure which has any respect for the Constitution, Bill of Rights, or the Rule of Law. Their entire premise is to paint a dismal picture of the framework of our government and society then use that basis to transform it into some socialist experiment with promises of Utopia. That transformation has only one guaranteed outcome...If I get more, you get less because the size of the pie is defined and grows smaller all the time. On the conservative side, we see the same mistake made over and over as various elements splinter away from the mainstream conservative perspective and attempt to bring some sanity to the mix. The most recent example comes from the Tea Party. While that movement has had some success, it is not a result of a coming together of liberal and conservatives to form a stronger power base but more a chipping away of the defined conservative base into the third view. This view is opposed by both Democrats and Republicans in Washington because it calls for a change in the status quo...primarily fiscal responsibility and accountability. In the end, it becomes very difficult for any Tea Party conservative to accomplish anything given the opposition and the conservative base is splintered...the primary factor that put Bill Clinton into office over Bush Sr. in 92. The progressive actions on the left taken under the guise of liberal politics in sustained by a tradition of Democrat leaning over the country by those who have no clue that their party was long since highjacked. That progressive existence is a deadly cancer on the existence of America as we know it and if it is sustained, America will be doomed. Unfortunately, the conservative side capable of stopping that progressive growth is too caught up in its own internal battling to fight the proper fight. That situation will only worsen as more and more Tea Party conservatives like Bachmann give up and go back home. What we as Americans must realize is that our heritage and our framework as a nation is on the line here and rapidly being attacked and buried. ~WB
