These, and many more, is what Obama meant by "fundamentally transforming America."


But the Obamazombies say none of that ever happened (as stated by DJ a couple of pages ago) - even when their MESSiah admits it.... then they just excuse it as "Bush's fault."


 


Looks like the IRS was doing more than just going after "Tea Party" groups (as we said over a year ago.)  The IRS has released confidential information to the media, targeted a reporter after an Obama interview.... targetted pro-Israeli groups....    I wonder where the list will go.


 


I was reading an article that referenced the impeachment articles against Nixon.... it included him using the IRS to attack his enemies.


 


And don't you just love how Obama calls the IRS an "independent agency"?  I guess he forgot that the IRS is part of the Department of Treasury which works for him....  Obama also said that the IRS must apply laws in an "non-partisan way".... so why did at least one applicant get told by an IRS agent that their application went to "special unit in the D.C. office to determine whether the organization's activities contradict the administration's public policies"  ??

Not that it is any of your business, but I also am in contact with my representatives regarding issues that I am concerned with or that affect my state, my community or the nation as a whole.

No need to get defensive. You've already mentioned that you "express (yourself) through email, phone and voting." I guess, staying within the context of the analogy, you're a die-hard fan with season tickets. My point is, no matter how much you choose to involve yourself you're still not actually playing the game.

Fair enough, though the assault weapons ban will not solve gun crime. As I said, Americans also belive that gun crime has risen, when it hasn't. The American public is mostly uniformed. That is concerning to me.

I share your concerns about the American public being uninformed but I blame the corporate media for that. If the majority of information the public recieved wasn't controlled by six conglomerates all competing for ratings and profits then they wouldn't be as uninformed/misinformed. However, like supporting republicanism, if you support capitalism then you can't really complain and have only yourself to blame. In both ways, you are supporting "limited" or "private" control of wealth/power/information/resources/etc.

That said, you are right about the assault weapons ban and gun crime being down. If the American public were more informed about this then the debate would be about banning handguns, not assault weapons.

I just want Obama to stop, that's all.

Stop trying to compromise with Republicans? Yeah, I wish he'd stop that too. (sarcasm, kinda)

Since I don't know you, and can hardly make a judgement in the posts we have hear, um, no, I don't agree with that point. I don't really have any opinion on you. I just disagree with your opinions regarding Obama, government in general.

I find it hard to believe you have no opinion of me. I have an opinion of you and I have an opinion of Bam. For what it's worth, my opinion of you is much higher than my opinion of Bam.

I agree with Bam-Bam about Obama and the points he is making there. You can leave any personal attacks out of this, implied or otherwise.

Fair enough.

DT,


I have no opinion of you because I don't know you. These discussions are better in person because so much is lost in text. I know, I'm whining about messages on a forum-forgive the indulgence


If I have any opinion of you its that I think you are at least informed about the issues and can state your opinion with a fair amount of clarity. Perhaps as we discuss my opinion will deepen, but for now, I am dealing more in facts and political opinions than personal opinions.


Right now, regarding Obama, I am deeply frustrated that scandals buzz around him yet he takes no responsibility and no one holds him responsible! If Bush were doing the same things he is doing then impeachment would be the word of the day.

But, fireproof, how can we hold Obama responsible for any of this? He's only the president of the most powerful country in the world; can anyone really expect him to know what's going on? I mean, what's he supposed to do? Uphold the constituion? Honor the oath he took? Please, this is 2013! Nobody cares about that stuff anymore! As long as we have our entertainment and a complicit media we need not concern ourselves with anything Obama's doing...after all whatever he does is for our own good. I mean, we deserve it, right? All we need do is dig a bigger hole to fit a couch down in where we've buried our heads. Cozy!

Here's the official answer by the White House regarding all the recent scandals:


 



 


I've never thought Obama was incompetent (he just has a different agenda than the Constitution,) so why is Obama wanting us to think that about him now?

Yep... and in the "most transparent administration ever" update....


the director of the IRS division that targetted conservative/libertarian/Patriot groups refuses to answer questions....


 


Notice how we citizens can't refuse to answer the IRS questions...

Oh... and the IRS refused to provide Congress with all communications with White House regarding targetting these groups...


 


I wonder what would happen if I refused to answer the IRS when they demand it....

Wow... watching some of these hearings online is quite eye opening (for those of us that haven't stuck our head in the sand.)  Not only was the IRS targetting "patriot" groups, but it's come out that the FBI, OSHA, ATF and other government agencies also harrassed some of these groups.  There's only one person that is over all these different groups: Obama.

Isn't it interesting that the Obama administration will override a court approved legal immigration (family seeking sanctuary from religious persecution -- one of the original reasons why people fled to America) and then turn around and have both Obama & Biden meet with known illegal aliens in the White House?

So it comes out that not only the DOJ not only place wiretaps on the AP, but Fox News as well.  And AG Holder did actually approve the investigation.  Now Obama is telling Holder to investigate himself?  What's next?  Obama pardoning himself?

Isn't it interesting that if any one of these types of scandals happened at a corporation and the CEO and senior executives keep feigning ignorance (even though the information was sent up,) everyone would be demanding that the CEO (and probably the entire board) be fired.  Why is that standard not being applied to Obama?
