A Bad Week For The Obama Administration As Lies, Cover-Ups And Abuse Take Center Stage

0 Shares
President Obama returns to Washington from summits in Mexico and Costa Rica

Every so often, a Presidential Administration is plagued by a report that reveals unconscionable crookedness, depravity or incompetence. And those reports, given the nature of the country’s political system, usually come as no surprise to the American everyman, who is far removed from the marbled halls of Washington and who has come to terms with the fact that the Nation is run — mostly — by a despicably debauched swineherd with the motive and means to put its own interest above that of the people.

But the stories coming out of Washington last week, largely without the benefit of mass media attention, reveal just how badly things have become in the United States. Not that the vast majority of the lot comprising this this country’s political class has been exemplary of moral righteousness at any point over the past 200 years, but the allegations levied — or rehashed — against the Barack Obama-led Federal government last week are quite damning. Observing the revelations, one can deduce only that either that the highest-ranking government officials no longer feel the need to cover the lies they tell with great care or that the Internet-enabled populace is making it impossible for them to do so successfully. Either way, it is clear that the American public is lied to regularly, especially when an election is near.

Benghazi

Liberals firmly planted in the Obama corner spent much of last week decrying Republican efforts to get real, concrete answers about questions that remain unanswered with regard to the terror attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in September.

Had the Benghazi attack taken place at any time not during or directly leading up to an election, it is likely that the public would have been fed a story that made a little bit more sense. But as mainstream media remained squarely focused on whatever political circus was taking place at the moment to continue its round-the-clock election coverage, Americans were fed a story about a silly video and a surprise riot turned violent.

If the early skeptics failed to make it clear, the Congressional hearings that took place last week certainly leave no doubt. The Benghazi attack had nothing to do with a poorly produced YouTube video, the Federal government had the opportunity to react and save the lives of those slain and what some conservative lawmakers have rightly described as “dereliction of duty” at both the State Department and higher within the Administration contributed to the fatal outcome.

If that isn’t true, why would the Presidential Administration and State Department officials go to such great lengths to create a narrative that people who were directly involved with the initial response to the attack didn’t even recognize?

Consider this ABC report, a little late and  likely forced by conservative outrage over the latest Benghazi hearings:

When it became clear last fall that the CIA’s now discredited Benghazi talking points were flawed, the White House said repeatedly the documents were put together almost entirely by the intelligence community, but White House documents reviewed by Congress suggest a different story.

ABC News has obtained 12 different versions of the talking points that show they were extensively edited as they evolved from the drafts first written entirely by the CIA to the final version distributed to Congress and to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice before she appeared on five talk shows the Sunday after that attack.

White House emails reviewed by ABC News suggest the edits were made with extensive input from the State Department. The edits included requests from the State Department that references to the Al Qaeda-affiliated group Ansar al-Sharia be deleted as well references to CIA warnings about terrorist threats in Benghazi in the months preceding the attack.

Here’s the full hearing:


 

Balancing Dead Navy SEALS And Valuable Political Propaganda

In 2011, the Obama Administration took credit for a heroic Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin-Laden, who had been, arguably, the most hated man in America for a decade. What the Administration never took credit for, and really gave little sorrowful lip service to, was the subsequent deaths of 22 Navy SEALs — many of whom belonging to the same SEAL Team that the Vice President carelessly linked with bin-Laden’s death — when they were shot down by a Taliban insurgent while being transported in an outdated and slow-moving Chinook helicopter in the dangerous Wardak region of Afghanistan months later.

Last week, family members of those slain SEALs held a press conference during which some shocking allegations were made and remarkable questions were asked of the Presidential Administration.

During the press conference, a number people, including retired military personnel, said that the Presidential Administration was as much to blame for the deaths for identifying the SEAL team as Taliban operatives were for shooting down the chopper. Questions were also raised about how the service members were disrespected by a Muslim cleric during a memorial, presumably in the name of political correctness.

Here’s the press conference:


 
The fallen SEALs’ families simply want answers to the following questions:

  • How President Obama and Vice President Biden, having disclosed on May 4, 2011, that Navy Seal Team VI carried out the successful raid on Bin Laden’s compound resulting in the master terrorist’s death, put a retaliatory target on the backs of the fallen heroes.
  • How and why high-level military officials sent these Navy SEAL Team VI heroes into battle without special operations aviation and proper air support.
  • How and why middle-level military brass carries out too many ill-prepared missions to boost their standing with top-level military brass and the Commander-in-Chief in order that they can be promoted.
  • How the military restricts special operations servicemen and others from engaging in timely return fire when fired upon by the Taliban and other terrorist groups and interests, thus jeopardizing the servicemen’s lives.
  • How and why the denial of requested pre-assault fire may have contributed to the shoot down of the Navy SEAL Team VI helicopter and the death of these special operations servicemen.
  • How Afghani forces accompanying the Navy SEAL Team VI servicemen on the helicopter were not properly vetted and how they possibly disclosed classified information to the Taliban about the mission, resulting in the shoot down of the helicopter.
  • How military brass, while prohibiting any mention of a Judeo-Christian God, invited a Muslim cleric to the funeral for the fallen Navy SEAL Team VI heroes who disparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen by damning them as infidels to Allah. A video of the Muslim cleric’s “prayer” will be shown with a certified translation.

The families of those fallen and the attorney representing them deemed the official investigation into the helicopter crash a cover-up. Now that Obama has been safely re-elected, it remains to be seen if they will get answers — but it isn’t likely.

Cover Mistakes, Cripple Opponents

Between the years 2010 and 2012, the number of for applications Internal Revenue Service received for tax-exempt status doubled, largely resultant from the explosion in grass-roots neighborhood outreach efforts by Tea Party-affiliated organizations.

During the same time, the IRS began placing undue scrutiny on organizations requesting the status if they included words like “Tea Party” or “patriot” in their application. Conservatives organizing for the groups realized this and began complaining. In February 2012, 16 groups affiliated with conservative movement publicly announced that they were being harassed by the agency and that they were made to fill out nonstandard detailed questionnaires asking about their political views and activities.

Last week, the IRS admitted to using extra scrutiny to using its power to quell the proliferation of conservative grass-roots organizations.

Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has called for a “government-wide review” to assure “these thuggish practices” aren’t widespread, raising the possibility that Americans will learn of involvement in the decision to target conservative groups existed higher in government than the agency has admitted.

Presidential Accountability, Honor And Re-Election Don’t Jive

People on the left have criticized conservatives for “blowing things out of proportion” comparing the Benghazi cover-up to Richard Nixon’s Watergate. They continuously attempt to point out that other Presidential Administrations have acted dishonorably as well. It, they say, is an ugly truth of Presidential politics.

And though some of last week’s events have coaxed muted whispers about possible impeachment from some conservative pundits, don’t expect mainstream media to enable public opinion to entertain ideas so drastic.

It will be history that judges Obama and his Administration. Long after the current Commander in Chief has left office, the dots will be connected, revealing the story of an Administration that failed to keep basic promises made to its base supporters during its initial election effort, mostly because it routinely spent more effort on cover-up and propaganda campaigns than it ever did on policy initiatives.

And then even liberals will be forced to agree that as slimy and thin-skinned as Nixon may have been, his actions have nothing on those of the Obama Administration: fatal in its incompetence, unrepentant in its failures and unwavering in its belief that each of its actions is one of virtue.

    The Obama Administration and its accomplices are transforming the United States into a sick has-been nation where truth, freedom, prosperity, and our founding principles are only pleasant memories. It seems like there are too few brave individuals, such as Sam Rolley, who are willing to stand up to the Dear Leader and his comrades. Patriots should thank God for outspoken conservatives and ask Him to bless them and their mission. Despite being marginalized by Obama’s propaganda machine, these people (and the organizations which support them) still make the truth available for concerned Americans to see and know, so that hopefully they will elect more Tea Party conservatives to restore Constitutional limited government and individual liberty.

        Please explain your reasoning, the facts by which you come to the conclusion that God is on your side. What particulars, in the current administration, are shown by the Bible to be embraced by God?

        • Deerinwater

          God is not on anybody side. ~ God is not a person, much less with a predisposed attitude favoring one creation over the other. ~ That kind of thinking is pure hose feathers. ~ Alive or dead, you belong to whatever created you . It made you once, ~ it will make you again and not a single tear will be shed. ~ Primitive thinking to think otherwise. ~ The Taliban thinks along these very same lines ~ and their are crazier then a $hithouse rat.

  • edc

    Just as pharoah of Egypt (Exodus 1) when his plan to kill all the Hebrew newborn boys by midwife abortion failed, got infurriated and ordered all male Hebrew children two years old or younger to be killed, all tyrants (including obama) get infurriated when deceit doesn’t work. Baal (baal- the god of child sacrifice) obama-bin-lyin has tried to deceive his way into world power and now as it seems to begin to fail he is getting furrious and will try directly to control everything, maybe by military means.

      Doesn’t matter where he was born, his father was not an American citizen, making him not a “natural born citizen” as per the Constitution. Hence, he cannot be eligible for the office of President, as neither can Marco Rubio.

      • Flashy

        hmmm..is that why he was twice elected by a majority of the vote? The only President since Ike (and the first Dem since FDR) to have been so honored by the American People?

        As are most of the “constitutional claims” made on this site, y’all have a shewed and warped understanding of the document which is the basis for our government.

          Yup, he was twice-elected, and still, has done absolutely nothing to avert the disaster that is coming on the US. If anything, he placed the run-away-train into a higher gear! And the majority of Americans voted for him a second time? When America dies, her tombstone should read: “Here lies America, killed by a majority of stupid-people”!

          Shewed? And you see yourself fit to educate us on the Constitution? I think not!

        • Motov

          I wonder what the true numbers show, subtracting all those who voted more than once, dead people votes, the votes that were never counted and thrown away, including those votes that were destroyed in the airplane crash, and those who were never qualified to vote (illegal aliens), and the jerry rigged voting booths that were counted, The last “election” was so badly mis-managed it should have been declared invalid.

  • Hawk!

    Imagine a country where the truth was real, people served in the government because they felt it a duty, taxes were transparently used for public NEEDS, sanctity of life was taught to everyone, there was no need to coverup ANYTHING, politicians did not seek power & money for the sake of power, killing ANYTHING was not taken lightly, liberal themes were balanced with conservative morals, you slept with ONLY your wife, money was spent frugally AS NEEDED and a healthy saving account was there for emergencies, everyone was responsible for themselves & ex-presidents didn’t join in arms sales to ex-enemies to make a buck. This is all still possible but those of a different mindset must be rooted out (the guilty ones can be found out by their actions). What a better America & a better world this could be! America sets the tone for much of the world but it has become a pretty sour one as greed. influence, hipocracy & opacity are winning the day (& night).WE ARE AMERICA AND WE CAN DO BETTER!

        same goes for the Tea Party and right wing loons. They manufacture their own reality led along by slime like Glen Beck and Limbaugh.

        • DaveH234

          The Tea Party would have been more effective when the economy was rolling along. To constrain in these slower times will only compound the problem economy. The people of Europe are up in arms over the constraints being put forth in the name of recovery.
          If I’m not mistaken the previous Republican “Conservative” administration was responsible for the massive spending and hence the debts from wars and lowering taxes.

          • WTS/JAY

            Economy? What economy? There is nothing to restrain, and nothing to stimulate, DaveH234…that ship sailed long ago!

          • Opinari

            @ DaveH234: Give it a break. The debts from Bush’s wars is a drop in the bucket to what Obama has spent.

          Maybe you are the one having difficulty with reality as in the True Reality of the Tea Party and the “right wing loons” and Glen Beck and Limbaugh. Your reality appears to be a unworkable counterfeit that is why you don’t want to know that there is actually a real working reality.

    Blah, blah, blah. Nothing there! How about investigating this. There were 13 Benghazis that occurred on Bush’s watch without a word from Fox News or you. Care to explain that?

    January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.

    June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al Qaeda attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.

    October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of “Bali Bombings.” No fatalities.

    March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide
    bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S.
    diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers. (I wonder
    if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name “David
    Foy.” This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what’s
    considered American soil.)

    September 12, 2006. Damascus, Syria. Four armed
    gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar” storm the U.S. Embassy using grenades,

            Sigh…here’s that Big Lie again the extremists aka Tea Partiers and American Taliban keep wanting to play up. Just as i am convinced few here have read the Constitution and the groundbreaking major cases interpreting it…y’all never read the Community Reinvestment Act..and subsequent legislation.

            Criminey. The CRA dates back to the mid 70’s and acts as a recording of what banks lend in a community and what they take as savings and investment monies from a community. It records whether a community is being raped by banks and “red lined”. It has NOTHING to do with lending criteria. Nothing…get it?

            Now…anyone care to cite any law which was a gun to the heads of the banks in the 00’s as far as forcing them to lend in the subprime world? Anything? Anything at all?

            You can’t…because such doesn’t exist ! Knock yourselves out looking…be my guest.

            What caused the hyperinflated lending of the 00’s? Repeal of glass Steagal (introduced and jammed through by GOPers) is one. The politicization of the SEC by Bush II is another. The “self policing” by the industry as a third, the scarcity of regulators and investigators caused by the Bush II layoffs and failure to fund the SEC investigative arm is another, the lack of the GOP Congress to insist on proper oversight is another…jeesh…see that lines connecting here folks?

            Now..for those dimwits who will whine and say “Congress was Dem in 2006!”. Wrong..Congress was Dem when the 2007 Congress was seated and the committees and oversight went o them. The crash began in the summer of ’07. So in less than 6 months, Congress was supposed to reverse the past six years of abuse by the Executive and passed legislation favoring the banks…when the crash loomed and began to roll with more intensity. And a presidential election (and Congress and Senate) loomed and with every political appointee of Bush II saying “all is well”.

            And the deficit we now have? Of course, it was gifted to Obama when hie took office…and the wacked TPers and American Taliban are saying it is Obama’s deficit. Criminey…can y’all even come close once in awhile to fats?

          • WTS/JAY

            In the 1990s, convinced that the US mortgage market was racist, the Clinton administration launched a massive campaign of social engineering.

            Through government entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, officials encouraged extending mortgages to people with little or no credit. They targeted private banks with discrimination lawsuits if they didn’t lend to enough minorities or people with low incomes. Housing prices skyrocketed as people with no down payment or shaky salaries suddenly were able to buy homes.

            Then the bubble burst.

            Millions were unable to pay their subprime loans, and they took the banks down with them. The housing market — and the economy — is still recovering from the folly.

            Now the Obama administration wants to do it all over again.

            Blithely ignoring the lessons of the housing bubble, Obama has rehired many of the Clinton hands who inflated it in the first place, pursuing the same misguided policies that try to force people into homes they can’t afford in the name of “fairness.”

            “The administration is launching subprime 2.0,” warns former chief Fannie Mae credit officer Edward Pinto.

            There are “affordable housing” mandates aimed at getting Fannie and Freddie to take on even higher-risk borrowers. Through the Federal Housing Administration, houses are being offered to some low-income subprime buyers with minimal down payment and heavy subsidies.

            The administration also is making it easier to sue a bank for not giving a loan, using a legal strategy called “disparate impact.” Officials don’t have to prove that the bank is being racist in its actions. If minorities are getting fewer loans than whites, even if there are good financial reasons for doing so, then the impact is unfair — and illegal.

            “It’s particularly galling that the people who are using the crisis to extend regulation are the same ones who sponsored the government policies that created the crisis,” said Peter Wallison, former member of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, a government group created to look into the causes of the 2008 crash.

            One banking official, ex-BB&T CEO John Allison, predicts that because of these policies, “There will be another incredibly destructive crisis in our financial system in the next 10 to 15 years.”

          • DaveH234

            In my market 70% of all current and recent home buys have been for all cash. There is no loan program for the minorities being used. Where is the info for this program?

    Let’s see…of the three, we have Benghazi and the IRS issue. The SEAL team I assume you want the POTUS to be aware of every action by the military low command structure? There is something to ask about there, for certain…but to say the POTUS is invoved in a cover up of this ? Fantasyland and delusional.

    Benghazi. As i have written several times, if anyone gives it a serious contemplation, something was gong down in Benghazi which was top secret. An Ambassador who chose an unprotected place (a CIA post as a matter of fact), a late night clandestine meeting with CIA and Special Forces reps, and the CIA vetted the “talking points” disseminated. Add to that al Qaeda wasted precious and valuable assets to stop the meeting, the Libyan President went on TV and in both Arabic and English apologized to the US (when was the last time that happened with an Arab nation ???), Egypt all of a sudden ‘saw he light” and protected US interests with its military as riots went on. No…there was something going down involving that meeting, something top secret and important.

    The “Benghazi scandal”? It’s a Clinton scandal, not an Obama scandal. The talking points went through various agencies..and the line about the riots remained intact while other points were amended or dropped. GOP and Dem leadership who have been briefed on what Benghazi was about are staying silent..you notice that? The real scandal about Benghazi is someone was stupid enough to have such a flimsy cover story, and it had to be ran with after it went out.

    The IRS revelations. Ah yes, this will be fodder for years to come as the wacked extremists rant and rave about being victims and targets. Jeesh. What really happened? A local office in charge of vetting “non profit information groups’ did what Will Sutton did with banks…they went where the action was. During the time period in question, the IRS was deluged by right wing ‘non profits” which were not “information groups”, but which were, in reality, political oriented groups shoveling money into the coffers of political candidates and running political ads. 278 applications were examined. Of those, once the scrutiny came down…they folded. Makes ya wonder if they weren’t playing a scam eh?

    So there was a test created to target group which may skirt the “information non profit” status requirements in order to hide donors and activities and avoid taxes. Let’s see….what type of group would do such a thing in the 2010-2011 season? Hmmm..anti government, extremist, conservative?

    Don’t forget, it was only the non profit status apps that were examined. Not ta returns, not donor lists…only the applications questioned as to whether they were what they claimed. And most dropped out of sight when even the minimal iota of scrutiny was done.

    The “scandal” is when the head of the IRS (a Bush appointee0 lied and also that the IRS used a biased test in determining what groups to ask deeper questions of status.

      Did you stop paying attention to whats going on after the first broadcast of each event. I figure you must of had the wife telling you to get back to work on her chore list and you just can’t get all the info out there on all these events or like many on the left you only hear what you want to hear. 20 kids are dead, banned all guns, but you want abortion to continue killing born / unborn babies. Sounds like you know just what you’re talking about, no wonder everybody thinks you’re right! I just wonder if the cabal is throwing Obama under the bus to save hellonwheels Clinton to be able to run in 2016. It maybe the only thing left for them to do to keep her from going down now.

            Nothing to really go on here.

          • BobinCA

            No, I’m not mistaken, nor am I ignorant of the facts. But tell me where you found this other opinion piece that I got this conjecture from? Maybe the one with the NJ senator that forgot to turn his mic off before talking about gun control? By the way who died and put you in charge of deciding what is and what isn’t something to go on. You have yet to offer anything of fact concerning my opinion, the only thing you try to do is interfere with peoples opinions / conversations with your cheap shots to try an invoke upset by calling people ignorant of the facts, mistaken and delusional. This is the norm for a leftist mouth piece that can’t think of anything to counter a statement that points out your lack of logic and / or facts.

      The Ambassador asked for help THIRTEEN times. The night our Ambassador and 3 other Americans were murdered, Barack Obama went to bed…rested up and then flew to Las Vegas for a fundraiser with Beyonce and Jay-Z.

    • Opinari

      @Flashy: When do people stop blaming those in the past? This problem is now. It doesn’t matter if you think Clinton or Bush was the cause. Obama has been elected twice…it happened on his watch, it is his problem and he cannot be upfront with the American citizens. Instead he tried to divert the real reason so now he is in this pickle. Let us see how honest he can be. So far he is not honest about anything. He twists truths and twists what he has said in past…he’s incapable of truth.

  • rendarsmith

    It’s going to take this whole country’s collapse to get these libs to wake up, and even then they’ll try to blame the republicans and capitalism to the very end.

    MSNBC wants the POTUS impeached… what… so Shot Gun Joe can take over? Well maybe that’s not so bad, a little more action to the plot could peak a little more interest in this bamboozle of an administration. Watching the POTUS play golf, and travel around the world with his minions certainly isn’t entertaining anymore! I’d rather die than listen to another speech from the lecturer and thief… not that I actually listen, it’s just that it seems like scheduled programing, what does he have his own network for goodness sake!

    • oldvet

      Shotgun Joe would be out West, once again advocating for the retraining of cattle guards. You have to admit, a complete boob speaking off the cuff is more fun to listen to than an orator who can only orate with a prompter. Since our government has become a complete joke we might as well have a stand-up clown in charge. (Hopefully his plagiarism days are far behind him and we won’t be listening to a rehash of his predecessor’s campaign speeches masquerading as press conferences.)

      • Wizzardly

        Maybe Shotgun Joe could re-use the teleprompters and speeches, getting double duty from them, sort of like re-using toilet paper.

    unwavering in its belief that each of its actions is one of virtue, by the liberals.

    How sad for America…

    The Benghazi “scandal” is a storm in a tea cup stirred up by grandstanding politicians with an eye on the next presidential election.

    There was no advantage to the administration one way or the other whether terrorists or fundamentalists going ape sh#t over a video. There were just a lot of confused information passers along the way.

    let’s move on to something actually important.

    • WTS/JAY

      Oh, so if someone were to murder a member of your family, we should view your demand for justice as nothing more then “grandstanding” and respond to you with a; “let’s move on to something actually important?” Oooh, you are one scary-psychopath!

    • Motov

      Yeah, lets make sure Obozo’s next term be served in maximum security prison in the same cell as “Bubbah”, so “Bubbah” can show him what he has been doing for the past 4+ years to this nation.
      NOW that is important!

    • Wizzardly

      Yup. Nothing to see here, so move along. Bull. Hillary lied, BHO went to bed and Americans died. And the mother of one of the murdered was dis-invited to a ceremony honoring them and wouldn’t have been able to attend except for Sean Hannity’s generosity. Incompetent is the highest praise you can give this administration; malevolent would be more accurate. We need to know who gave the stand-down order. We need to know who altered the truth to result in S. Rice’s tour of lies on the Sunday talk shows. We need to know who the survivors are and have them testify to Congress. Those questions are “something important”.

    This is not news – we already knew this back in 2008. This is ‘olds’.

    Well, It was a bad week! ~ The GOP is attempting hide the fact that they are not doing anything about the conditions of the economy by flaming the current administration over the acts of some criminals that enjoys seeing the effect of their foul deeds.

    Got your eye off the ball ~ one more time! ~ You people are just too easy to fool. ~ So now, ~ you will accuse me of being the fool while it is you. ~ Ha ha! ~ I don’t have time for this

    It appears that this is all Glenn Beck BS, ~ The Kool-Aid King. The Oracle ~~ You will not achieve anything with this mindless nonsense. It even reeks of Glenn Beck!

    While it is good ~ in these times of belt tighten and budget crunching to assess our liabilities and responsibilities. ~ If we lack the funds to adequately protect our statesmen oversea and cannot depend on the host government for support ~~ We need to bring them home .

    297 million was cut from the security budget for oversea Ambassadors by the current Thrift conscious GOP lead congress ~ and now the doors has slapped on their ass-ets. So you are looking for “Who Did IT” ? ~ Who allowed this awful thing to happen?

    What is it with YOU GOP people ~ you don’t want to pay for your wars. But you want the wars! You don’t want long waits at the airline terminal but you want it to be safe while cutting staffing . ” The FAA has resorted to the move as it swallows its share of $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts — known as the sequester — that took effect last month at government agencies.

    I’m getting side tracked here, ~

    You get what you pay for ~ you quite paying for it ~ you quit getting it ! ~

    CEO’s and Statesman’s salaries seem to be the only thing immune to cuts today. ~ At 300 times what the average American worker get paid, I’d think that there is room for cuts!

    .

    • Wambli525

      You might want to equate that “massive budget cut” to a precentage of the total budget. In your eyes, any cut is draconian and we wouldn’t be in sequester had Obama put budgets together. Can you imagine that even democrats voted down O’s budget proposals because they were so far out of line. So, all the blame is not on the R’s. The D’s are equally to blame

      • Deerinwater

        Cutting is fine , cut away! ~ but we must accept that there are things that we are not buying when we cut! Be prepared to do without these “things” .

        It’s not too hard to see how spending to much on bullets and too little on someone to shot bullets ~ has a serious down side!

        • Wambli525

          Evert year the federal government grows the budget
          (spending) automatically. When that rate is cut we get the sad stories from the Politicians . (As a example Obama closes the White House to public tours.) Now tell me when does a 5% cut start to hurt. Answer when the piglets in Washington lose economic power, Please remember it is the bureaucrats that get to pick where to cut. Speaking of bullets …. Why in hell is the DHS spending so much money on billions bullets? And who is the DHS gonna use them on ?????

        • Opinari

          Tell that to our WH…our government is said to be buying up much of the ammo out there. True or not?

    • Opinari

      Those cuts do not necessarily mean less funding. Look at the play Obama “tried” to get with the sequester. Those in this WH administration chose not to give them more security, pure and simple. They lied about video being the reason…where would that reason give credence for no need for further security or true information?

  • Wambli525

    Bad week for Obama = Good week for America

    • Motov

      2nd term curse will prove beyond doubt this charlatan has been America’s biggest mistake ever!

  • JUKEBOX

    Obama claims his administration is the most transparent in the history of the country. It is as transparent as a four inch thick shield of lead.

    • Motov

      It is transparent to me, It is transparent this administration is a den of vipers that takes glory of its “one” deed (which we all know is a lie) of Osama Bin Laden’s death. Everything else is obviously GWB fault!.
      Another transparency of this illegal alien is the fraud he committed that would land anyone else in jail! It is also transparent this clown is out to destroy the Constitution anyway he can!
