Obama Ran Clean Administration With NO Scandals Says NY Times Columnist


I’ve heard of looking at the world through rose colored glasses, but David Brooks of the New York Times has to be looking through black glasses to see what he saw.

Speaking on the PBS News Hour post-election coverage, Brooks told his fellow commentators that Barack Obama’s first term in office was very clean and free of scandal. He did say that Obama was arrogant at times and subject to overconfidence but was a man of high integrity.

“First of all, I would say if anybody is subject to overconfidence, I would say it’s Barack Obama.  But I do think there are a couple of things that are character-logical that will guard against some of the common flaws of second terms. First, he’s a man of high integrity who has run a very clean administration. You can argue with this or that or behavior. There have been signs of insularity and arrogance, but there have been no scandals. And the rate of scandals plaguing second terms is extremely high. I think he’s less prone to that.”

I saw this report I had to wonder what ivory tower in New York City Brooks lived and worked in. Even if he couldn’t see past the skyscraper skyline of New York I find it hard to believe that he hasn’t paid any attention to the numerous reports of Obama’s willful disobedience of federal law, corrupt Justice Department, and growing scandals including Operation Fast and Furious and Benghazi.

Operation Fast and Furious has been a scandal that has plagued Obama for over a year and has yet to be resolved.  Congress has launched at least 2 investigations into Fast and Furious and has subpoenaed thousands and thousands of pages of documents.  Over 120 members of Congress asked for the resignation of US Attorney General Eric Holder.

What took place at Benghazi, Libya and that the administration’s role in the deaths of four Americans has just erupted into what well could be a full-blown scandal. To date, 53 members of Congress are demanding that Obama tell them more about what happened and if the bombings that took place at the Benghazi Consulate earlier in the year had anything to do with the September 11 attack.

Evidently Brooks must think these are just minor irritations to a flawless administration.

As far as running a clean administration, I am not sure where to start in the list of federal laws Obama and his administration have broken. The president of United States is not above the law but sworn to uphold the law of the land. The United States Constitution does not give the president the power to bypass Congress and create law. Nor is the president of the United States given the power to un-enforce the laws of his choosing.

Yet President Obama knowingly instructed the Justice Department to not enforce the Defense of Marriage Act. He also violated federal law by instructing the Department of Homeland Security to not enforce certain immigration laws. In addition Obama has intentionally trampled upon the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights every opportunity he has had.

In the past year president Obama has illegally bypassed Congress by using executive orders and new regulations to enact pieces of legislation that Congress would not pass, thus using his powers to illegally create new laws in violation of the Constitution of the United States. One example was his Dream Act which allowed nearly 1,000,000 illegal aliens to remain in the US illegally and obtain certain rights of citizenship.

If Mr. David Brooks of the New York Times believes that these are the acts of a clean administration free of scandal than he has to be one of the most uninformed and delusional people in this country.

    Bull Crap … Bin Ladin is not dead but in fact living at US government expense in a resort area in South America.  Obama’s tour needed a shot in the arm  to giv him a positive swing in his first term to help toward re-election.

  • Beatrix17

    Brooks was a man who had identified as a conservative Republican, but who decided to back Obama.  Wills seemed to back Obama for awhile, too, but changed his mind.   I think they were both thrilled to finally have a President equal in IQ and  schooling to themselves.
     
    Obama’s ineptitude, failure to deal with the economy, turning America into a 2nd rate power, and his reliance on a nobody like Valerie Jarrett is a scandal.

  • http://msn.com Mari Jo ONeill

    This guy is just another representative of the “leftist main stream media” they will live in la la land for the next four years. I have yet to see any of these so-called journalists. and I use the term lightly say ahything that is negative about the “fraud” in the White House. They have abetted him in hislies and covered for him no matter what. What is their agenda????? The murder of “four American’s in Libya” was never news according to them. Then the President does a photo op at Hurricane Sandy and people say how great that he is out there doing his job. He hasn’y done his job in two years he was too busy campaigning. After the murders in Libya he went off to a fundraiser in Vegas.  Please people you should have been mor in tune with the facts, but why if you are getting everything for free from the Government  why bit the hand that feeds you.  we can only have a wait and see for the next four years and then I would like the people who voted for him answer how they feel then.

  • SharonJonesJeanguenat

    Only reason there are no ‘scandals’ is because people like this have covered it up! What does he call this Benghazi mess?

  • CoolChick

    It’s simple – boycott the mainstream news channels, stop buying the NY Times and liberal newspapers. You have to hit them in the wallet.

  • Liberals Are Worthless

    the fall of America is happening now and is the culmination of the successful infiltration of the communists into our institutions – schools, chuches, businesses, courts, military and government. Go to youtube and watch the Yuri Andropov interview from the mid 80′s !!! as he tells G. Edward Griffin ( The Creature From Jekyll Island author ) how  the Soviets have been actively engaged in bringing us down. He was a Soviet propaganda expert who defected. MIND BLOWING information and once you watch it you will realize how they have obviously succeeded.

  • dougiefresh54

    Hey, wait a minute, you have to understand that for a columnist like David Brooks it only qualifies as a scandal when the issue has come to the point where an Independent Counsel has been assigned to take up the allegations of wrong doing. Until then there is just the sour grape opinion of the opponents of the President and as we know, liberals know that those aren’t worth the paper they are written on. In his world there is nothing that has reached this level and he can in good conscience say the administration is ‘scandal free’.

  • QueDub

    I haven’t watched mainstream new for some time, ever since they fell in love with obama and started covering up for him.

    The media should be held on charges of trying to over throw the United States of America by collaborating with this current administration. We all know that Obama sold guns to the cartels and we know that he was the only one who could have issued the order to save the lives of the American’s at our embassy in Libya. He watched them die and then went to bed. I expect Congress to bring Obama, Biden, and Hillary up on charges of High Crimes and Misdemeanors otherwise they should be charged with dereliction of duty.

  • southernpatriots

    David Brooks is an idiot, and not a useful idiot either, a useless idiot.  He, like so many others, apparently lets his leftism and statism obscure his sight.  Remind me of many “Christian” pastors who told me they were voting for Obama.  When I pointed out that Obama has lied about his ObamaTax, ignored federal laws he disagreed with (DOMA), and that he not only supported but advocated SAD (sexually aberrant deviant) marriage, and death to the unborn and those born through botched abortions, the pastors would say, “We love the man, and pray for his shortcomings.”  I ask them if a rapist, repeatedly raped their wife or daughter, would they say the same thing?  They hang their head with no answer.  David Brooks does not hang his head.  He is not embarrassed by his lies.

    Actually he’s right.  Scandal has nothing to do with doing anything wrong, it has everything to do with getting caught and held to account.  The press has chosen to ignore anything that looks scandalous.  The Obama administration isn’t clean, but so far it has been free of scandal.

    • dougiefresh54

      It’s all about how you define ‘scandal’. So far for Mr. Brooks, nothing in the Obama administration rises to the definition of a scandal.

    • edc

      I think he meant “marital” scandals like  anything-for-a-buck bill clinton. Of course, they wouldn’t say anything about his unnatural attraction to men to be a scandal.

        @dougiefresh54 Maybe because they won’t respond to subpoenas, Sebelius hasn’t,  Holder hasn’t……you’re kidding right?

        • dougiefresh54

          Actually I’m serious. I agree these are egregious acts by Holder, Sebelius, et al. BUT, we haven’t hauled them into court and convicted them of anything. In our own court of opinion they are guilty of offending our values but ‘legally’ they are clean. In the eyes of the liberal press, No Scandal.
           
          Even Solyndra in court was found ‘clean’ - Judge Mary F. Walrath of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware ruled “that the evidence does not support a finding that the principal purpose of the plan was tax avoidance. 
           
          Treasury confirmed that the criminal probe of Solyndra is focused on whether the company and its officers misrepresented the firm’s finances to the government in seeking the loan or engaged in accounting fraud. So where are the criminal charges?
           
          Where are the criminal charges in “Fast and Furious”? We have spun our wheels and wasted our breath on public opinion and done nothing in the courts that would have tarnished the administration.

In Progressivism , the State replaces God as the source of all good things ; our rights are granted us by the State , and we owe our allegiance to the State ! Until Americans see it in this context , we will never understand what is in play and the stakes we are fighting for.

  • Ron1007

    I consider Michelle Obama taking trips that cost 465,000 a scandal. Also, dinners that cost 1 million is another example.  Also consider the more than 100 rounds of golf and over 200 campaign trips at our expense additional scandals.  Add Solindra and you have a longer list. I am surprised at Brooks statement. He knows very well that Fast and Furious and Libay are more than just scandals and the president is at the root of all of them.  Wake up David!!!

  • hookem

    and one more……
     
    “Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.” “Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”
    Ads by GoogleChicken Casserole RecipeOur Chicken Casserole Recipe Was Rated #1 In The Nation. See Now ChewOnIt.comMental Illness FacilityExclusive Dual Diagnosis Center. 24/7 Residential Care, Call Now! http://www.morningsiderecovery.com
    While political activists on the other side of the spectrum have made similar observations, Rossiter boasts professional credentials and a life virtually free of activism and links to “the vast right-wing conspiracy.”
    For more than 35 years he has diagnosed and treated more than 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases as a board-certified forensic psychiatrist. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago.
    Rossiter says the kind of liberalism being displayed by both Barack Obama and his Democratic primary opponent Hillary Clinton can only be understood as a psychological disorder.
     
    “A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do,” he says. “A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do.”
    Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:
    creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation; augmenting primitive feelings of envy; rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.
    “The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says. “When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

      @hookem The irony is that in the early 20th century , two sociologists at the Frankfurt School in Germany published a study on Conservatism , which claimed that it ( Conservatism ) is a mental disorder , based upon an irrational fear of the lower class in society overthrowing the power of the ruling class ! This School was later transferred to Columbia University , which explains why alumni of CU treat Conservatives so contemptuously ! Do the names Robert Reich and Barak Obama sound familiar ? There is an eerie comparison to be made between Liberalism and radical Islam , in that they both espouse fanatical religions, that advocate for a world view which they will stop at nothing to achieve !

      @Randy Gaiser
       Looks to me that all this lying stuff started with Slick Willie when he lied under oath about not having sex with Monica Lewinski, He got away with that slick and clean. Now Obama figures that he never has to tell the truth,

      • arm32

        I think that people have forgotten that Slick Willie was impeached. He can’t get off the “stage” and his followers think he can do no wrong. This is what we are going to have for years as we elect  these young liberal presidents. They think they can never be replaced as observed in this past election as little brother Oboma had to call into action that same old tired loud mouth for help. I will never forget how he wasted the four last years of his term trying to defend his stupid actions, lying all those years until the blue dress appear as the final piece of evidence.

  • CitizenReason

    Scandal, according to many of the mainstream media personnel, seems to only exist in the conservative camps.  When a liberal, in a leadership position, makes a derogatory remark which offends any one group they a simply apology and it is over and of no consequence.  Let a conservative leader do the same thing, it becomes a national disgrace and demands for that person’s resignation fly over the airways and cyberspace like the debris of an F-5 Tornado.  I guess that is why they are blind to the many things done by this administration that would have had any other administration facing the wrath of the nation.

    • Emslykarl

      @CitizenReason The scandal of the ages was the election of BHO to POTUS ! Historians will be debating and analyzing this phenomenon for generations to come : who was this man ? How do we account for his rapid rise to prominence and power ? How did he manage to conceal his philosophy and his agenda while seeking the most powerful job on earth ? How did he manage to fool most of the people most of the time ? How did America allow him to fundamentally transform our Nation into a welfare state against our will ? His name should be Houdini !

  • eric81

    Let me get this straight. Obama’s administration is clean of scandals. What a joke. You have the fast and furious, the bombings in Libya on 9/11. Obama was asked repeatedly for help and additional security just to be denied. Then Obama lied to the American people for 2 weeks afterward saying it was because of some stupid video knowing darn well that it was terrorist. This man lied to the American public from day one of him taking office. Passing bills that were un-constitutional. The extravagant vacations, 100 rounds of golf, all the campaign trips when he should have been doing his job. The fake birth certificate. I can’t believe that Brooks says that this administration has been scandal free. When thats all there has been is scandals. If you ask me I think Obama should have been impeached a long time ago. How in the world did this man get re-elected to a second term is beyond me. Perhaps a scandal is there also. However I can agree on one thing NY Times Columnist Brooks stated. That being that Obama is arrogant. This is the most arrogant man on the face of the earth and here we have to go through 4 more years of lies and deceit and scandals. I had hoped that people would have waken up after the first 4 years and voted for an honest man like Romney.

    Here is the great irony about this David Brooks story : Liberals of all stripes claimed that Romney was ” out of touch ” with mainstream America ; he couldn’t connect ; he did not understand ! Right ? Brooks is the guy that appears to be ” out of touch ” with reality ! He claims that Obama has operated ” with integrity “! Really ? The only reason there have been no major scandals , I because Brooks and others like him have been cleaning up after Obama since the day he was sworn in ! Fast and Furious got people killed , but Brooks ignores that fact ! The Benghazi massacre cost four more Americans their lives , but that’s not a scandal worthy of mention ; at least not by Brooks’ standards ! Does anyone remember Watergate , which was all about a stupid break-in of DNC offices in DC ! No one died in Watergate , but Nixon was hounded out of office as punishment ! How soon Brooks forgets ! Obama has lied repeatedly to cover up the truth about Benghazi ! Does that count as a scandal ? Brooks thinks it does not !

    OK, what about all his lies, during the campaign?  What was Fast & Furious all about, and all those deaths because of it? NOBODY DIED IN WATERGATE!
    What about Benghazi  and the four dead Americans? Plus what about the low-life ads during his re-election efforts? He went into the gutter and lowered the bar for all future attempts?

    Yes indeed, Obama has walked all over our constitution and our core values. He should be immediately impeached and tried for high treason. Nobody in congress has the gonads to do it. I damn sure would. It is noteworthy to mention that  Obama is a Muslim. His claim to Christianity is false and he is a wolf in sheeps clothing. It is evident by his apology tours and favortism to Islam. This reporter lives in la-la land.

  • Barry Goldwater II

    Mr. Brooks knows exactly what he is doing, and it is nothing new. Liberalism uses any and all means to indoctrinate the masses, much like Marx or Goebbels, and truth doesn’t even enter into the equation. As Obama has so adroitly demonstrated in his disastrous four-year reign, lying is a very powerful way to achieve and hold power. The electorate is so dumbed-down, so eager to believe the lies that they will accept such ludicrous statements without question. It is only when America’s institutions fail catastrophically and the poor, ignorant masses are left to discover that their beloved emperor has no clothes, that the truth may possibly dawn on them. By then, it will be too late; in fact, it is already too late. We have passed the tipping point, and through massive welfare giveaways and social programs he has achieved the magic, permanent electoral majority. There are simply too many people receiving government checks to be overcome at the ballot box.

    Well I say that’s a progressive for you.  They could care less about the constitution or upholding laws on the books or creating new laws without the consent of congress.  There are two reasons for this.  First, they really do believe that they are the ones we’ve been waiting for.  They believe in Wilson’s “administration”.  They are the experts at everything and they know better than “we the people”.  They believe that we should be quiet and do what we are told because we are dumb and selfish and would never be able to figure these things out for ourselves.  Second, they know that the republicans in the congress have no huevos.  They will never stand up to a liberal and check his superiority.  Why this is I’ll never know.  I suspect a few things but have no evidence.  Until we educate the people on our Constituion, It will never change.

    The scandal is what he has done to this country.

You don’t have to look any farther than the automotive bailout. This is the only way he got elected as observed in Ohio. He caters to the give me, give me more crowd. Little do they know that they are the ones that will get the short end of the stick. What happens to them when the money runs out? And it will run out. You only have to take a look at history and many of the European countries.

    Amen folks! David Brooks must also be suffering from the “dumbing-down” of America. This election has pointed out that the traditional view of Conservatism can no longer compete with the other 49% of Americans who have been mentally groomed that they are entitled to all they can get from the government. Over the past 20 years, the “perfect storm” has been brewing for such a time as this week. And we probably need to do a little soul-searching to see how much of what the Republican Party/Conservatives have let slip through has contributed to where we are as a nation. My own 20-something adult children still(!) do not comprehend what is happening socially, ethically, and financially to this nation. They, too have accepted the new “normal”, because they have been so well “groomed” to accept it as “progressive”. The Dems were very well organized, at any cost. Their methods are questionable, as many of you have offered. So now, what measures can be done to get us back on track? What part can each of us do? I, myself, am trying figure that out.

  • Stevervative

    Mr. Brooks, you must own several copies of the Brooklyn Bridge as well.

    Crying and moping about O’s winning Tuesday night has left me angry and determined to do as he suggests – GO FORWARD!  I realize I have not been as great a niece of Uncle Sam as I thought… voting each and every election, serving on boards, mentoring at schools, reading the mandates, attending rallies and putting up signs hasn’t had the results I want in our USA.  So, what am I going to do? Same thing I hope each of us do, start nit-picking.  Example:  I have sent money to our local PBS station for years… I love Big Bird, Antique Roadshow, etc., but evidently they have a much bigger political footprint than I think is right for a PUBLIC entity… This guy is over the top… STOP your contributions.  Tell the companies who advertise/back O’s regime that you won’t be buying their product(s) and WHY…  
    I live in a medium size city – heavily Democrat – and will be calling / e-mailing my mayor and councilman about the rude public employee who dissed me as I paid my water bill today in person. I will be reminding them that the city is over budget , leaves have not been picked up, garbage men throw and bend my garbage cans…
    I think you get the drift… Remind them they work for us, not the other way around.

    He must be talking that NYT has had no scandals on Obama. How about the Birth Announcement Microfilm being tampered with, or why Obama is the only person running for President that has not been vetted properly. The FBI never vetted Obama, and yet he wanted everyone else that he nominated to be vetted. Why would he spend almost 3 Million on sealing his records, probably our money too. This man is a fraud and I hope the lid finally blows on this. People call Congress and tell them to grow a pair of you know what. Obama and his wife even said in their own words that Kenya was Baracks home.

        @Quiet Patriot
         I have tried not to overwhelm you with information because I can. I am using your comment to answer your questions within parenthesis’s.
        I am curious how you (and God) think. 800 years after Jesus Mohammed stands up and says “Yep, God is the God of Abraham and Jesus was special but I’ve been given the task of giving you (apologies to Paul Harvey) “the rest of the story”.  (That is the way man thinks; not God) And then just 150 years ago Joseph Smith comes along and essentially does the same thing… he says “Hey, God of the Bible (and the Torah and the Koran) asked me to let you know that here’s the final book that will make it all clear and bring things into modern perspective”. (Again, it was a man acting on his own to write a story from his dreams and imaginations) And you guys were all voting for someone from THAT religion? (Who else did we have to vote for? I didn’t like it but Romney at least wasn’t bent on sending our country into socialist/communism.)   So what is it? Are Mormons as deluded as Muslims or not? (Yes they are but the Muslims want to kill all infidels – those who are not Muslim – but the Mormons are evil in another way because they do not believe in the same Jesus of the Bible; therefore, people do not know what the Bible teaches about salvation. John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.  
          Seems like a fair question. And another thing, why can’t God get it right the first time? (He did get it right the first time; it man who messed His message up.)  Is He ambivalent, inarticulate, or just a poor communicator? (No, God is: Sovereign, Love, Righteous, Just, Eternal Life, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscience, Veracity and Immutable. – I have scriptures for each)
        I Cor 1:18-21 For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, “I WILL DESTROY THE WISDOM OF THE WISE, AND THE CLEVERNESS OF THE CLEVER I WILL SET ASIDE.” Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

        @Quiet Patriot  @mallen11 You are so right about this issue. I have actually several comments regarding this issue in several other online papers. People who went ahead and voted for Mitt Romney, need to check themselves out very carefully. Because, CHRIST is going to come, ONE DAY. The MORMON RELIGION have DONE a Terrible Thing by adding to the Holy Scriptures. It is an UNFORGIVABLE and a Grieviance against the HOLY SPIRIT. In Revelations 22:18 “18 For[a] I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add[b] to him the plagues that are written in this book;” Unlike other SINS that are FORGIVABLE if you ask for repentance and FORGIVENESS from GOD through JESUS. Homosexuality can be forgiven, Murder can be forgiven, Abortion can be forgiven, BUT NOT this Terrible SIN of JOSEPH SMITH binging on some LOCAL WEED and then adding to the HOLY SCRIPTURES. My conclusion is, most of these Mormon followers are all Illiterate and went to NO SCHOOL.

        • mallen11

          @Samuel Pratt  @Quiet Patriot
           Samuel, I agree with everything you said except for the following…
          Note in Mark 3:23 says that Christ died for ALL sins.  So, the ”unpardonable sin” is not a sin in itself.  In fact, there’s such thing as an “unpardonable sin.”  It is listed as a sin for reasons of nomenclature and categorizing.  All sins listed in the Bible were poured out upon Christ on the cross – 1 Pet 2:24; 2 Cor 5:21.  As a result, the “unpardonable sin” is really an “unpardonable act.”  The “unpardonable act” is the act of unbelief = rejection of Christ.  Christ did not die on the cross for unbelief in Himself.
          The Character of the “Unpardonable Sin (or Act)”:
          It is an act committed by an unbeliever.It is impossible for the believer to commit the “unpardonable sin” – Isa 1:18; 44:22; 1 John 1:7; Ps 113:12It is a single sin or act.  It is not progressive or repetitious, except in its expressions.  If you reject the gospel, you may continue to reject it.There is nothing in the plan of God which provides forgiveness for it.It is condemned.  John 3:18The alternative to this act is to believe in Christ and be saved.  If rejection persist up to death, then there is no hope and no help.
          Mt 12:31 Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men [at the cross], but blasphemy [maligning – John 16:8-12] against of the Spirit [Holy Spirit] shall not be forgiven [rejection of the gospel].

    He’s got to be brain dead. How can reporters like him live with themselves or sleep at night? He might want to be careful in his reporting to avoid being charged with aiding and abetting or collusion should O’s pedestal implode. Have any of you read the announcement made yesterday regarding the 43 TRILLION dollar law suit being filed in New York by a national law firm. Apparently that amount of money was taken by several big banks and numerous higher ups on the Obama administration through Obama’s TARP program an then laundered in other countries. We may see most of the big banks going down the tubes and many of the better known members of Obama’s winding up behind bars for the rest of their lives. I would call this the biggest scandal in the history of our country and it happened under Obama’s watch, Mr. Brooks. If you can’t report the news truthfully, I would suggest that you retire and take up fishing or some other hobby. You clearly are a failure at true and accurate reporting.

      • guest18

        @Gus Since it is a large national law firm who is filing.this suit, they couldn’t’t eliminate enough people to be effective without suspicion. This law suit will put all foreclosures on hold until it goes through the courts because it was home loan money that was laundered. The suit names individuals (Jarrett, Axelrod, Holder, Geitner, et al, as well as Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and a number of other large banks. Who said these banks are too big to fail? If they broke the law as described in this lawsuit, they will be found guilty and will go down the tubes. None of the banks named are big enough to survive a judgement this large.

    these sort of articles by the biased media is the very reason the american people are uninformed about what is really happening, they don’t go to any other source to get more facts.  many are so tied up in their own lives, they don’t care. just so they get all they want to heck with the rest of us.  there has no doubt been more scandals associated with this president than any other. the comment about the 47 % isn’t really fair.  my husband and i both worked all our lives and paid into the SS system. now we are retired and are drawing SS benefits. there needs to a destinction between earned entitlements and unearned ones.  most adc, wic, food stamps is where most free loaders are.  it has become a life style from generation to generation.  hopefully you willbe able to retire and draw SS benefits also. i won’t begrudge you because if you worked, paid in, you deserve it.

  • 2WarAbnVet

    Everything about Obama is either faked, hidden, imagined, or lies about. He has never managed or controlled anything in his live; as President he proves his dishonesty and ineptitude every day. But, he is d**n good at passing the blame for all his miscues and scandals onto others. Fortunately for him, he has a tame socialist media (this tool Brooks, for example) to provide cover for all his misdoings, and a bank of teleprompters to speak for him

  • ttooproud

    David Brooks isn’t looking through black glasses, rose colored glasses or any other kind. He’s just a flat out liberal liar, like Obama.
     
    Good Lord, I can list Obama administration scandals with as much rapidity as I can my own kids birthdays. Let’s start with ACORN,, the Black Panther’s voter intimidation, Solyndra, Fast and Furious, Reid & Pelosi Obamacare bribery, SCOTUS Kagan’s conflict of interest on Obamacare ruling,  Stealth Amnesty,  Union Bailouts, Secret Service with Columbian prostitutes, GSA in Vegas,  LightSquared, Congressman Joe Sestak, government contracts and taxpayer $$ involving Biden’s brother, Pelosi’s brother-in-law, Harry Reid financial interests and many of Obama’s campaign contributors, HHS Sebelius violation of the Hatch Act, failure to call the attack at Ft. Hood what is was - a ‘terrorist’ attack.  The list goes on an on.  And of course, the most recent scandal, the terrorist attack in Benghazi and the cover up of Obama and Hillary Clinton’s incompetency to save the 4 lives that were lost. 
     
    If that isn’t enough for starters, who besides me, believes Andrew Breitbart was murdered?
     
    David Brooks……you’re a liar and a moron..

    • YellowJacket2

      @ttooproud
       And lets not forget the billions of dollars that went to the Brazilian oil industry after Soros invested in their oil exploration project. While at the same time he was snubbing his nose at a Federal Judge who order our gulf of Mexico oil production to resume. And then he stopped the pipeline from Canada and allowed the Chinese to buy up that oil. He is determined to stop coal mining and put a halt to all nuclear energy projects. Speaking of the Chinese, he killed the F22 project and lo and behold, suddenly the Chinese introduced a carbon copy of the F22. I wonder where they got the technology for that coup.
      We could go on ad nauseum, but I think the point has been made. We have a trator in our Whitehouse compliments of the Democratic party and our turn coat news media.
      Don’t ever again tell me that a Democrat is my fellow American. They bear a far closer relationship to the enemy soldiers that I used to kill back in my youth. But if anyone is interested I’m still available.

  • MoreComplex

    If I understand your point of contention correctly, it is based on the premise that Matthews is allowed to say things that a conservative could not say, which helped a sitting president get re-elected. First, every pundit graded Bush a ‘F’ failure in his administration’s response to Katrina, in contrast, most leaders including Gov Christie, gave Obama an ‘A’. Second, while damage to regions were comparable, death toll was not; Katrina killed more 1,800 people, Sandy killed no more than 50. Lastly, the sentiments post tragedy are completely different; while the country was left sad, mad and grieving, the country is proud, praising and inspired by our government. Having said that, Mathews was distasteful. But while you see conspiracy, I see an argument articulated in fact, reality and relevance to the sentiments of the very people affected by storm. As I one of them. To the Author and Editor: Try a little harder than to stoke the contemporary conspiracy of Liberal Media Bias …please.

    • Undergraduate

      Based on your comments above you are either a) a lying liar, b) an ignorant tool, c) a democrat yellow dog living outside any area truly affected by Sandy, d) have your head so far up Ubama’s ass that you no longer breate oxygen but now are a methane-based life form, or, e) all of the above. I pick “e.”

    • guest18

      @MoreComplex – You must be one of the Sandy “victims” who have food, water, heat and electricity. Try convincing those who don’t that Obama deserves an “A”. You are really preaching to the wrong choir, sir. It took our President 11 days to get to Louisiana to observe the BP oil spill damage. Are we to assume that you would give him an “A” for that effort (or lack thereof) as well?

  • CitizenMuscles

    What Mr. Brooks is saying is that this president is keeping his fly zipped. He has taken liberties with his executive privileges to change policy. There has been no fraud found in his stimulus funding. He has rewarded political supporters. It is American politics as usual. It’s just that nothing fraudulent or grossly illegal like wire tapping or pretending to be wire tapped has happened during his term. He is guilty of being a faithful husband and honest man like Ronald Reagan. It is too late to tear the president down now or to take the country down because of no budget deal. It would be better time spent trying to win the hearts and minds of voters for the next election cycle. Note the change in demographics as Mr. Brooks poignantly described during this same broadcast. If you watched Charlie Rose last night then the conclusion is to promote social mobility as the winning idea to capture voters. The old message of all government is bad is not enough and many people believe some government is needed anyway. How can Last Resistance help the GOP appeal to the new voter complexion and the aspirations of younger people in general who just want to get an education, a good paying job and raise families? That’s the question.

    Sorry.  Don’t see it.  Fast and furious was conceived and implemented under bush (yes, I blame bush; as do clearly 50% of the American electorate in post voting surveys), Benghazi, as any common sense would dictate, was an unfortunate consequence of even being in a muslim country.  Again, sorry; that’s all that it is and common sense Americans see that. 
    An inflammatory and slanted article to appeal to your base, while wise in terms of monetary return, does not address the reason conservatives are losing the country; bigotry, arrogance, intolerance, that us-vs-them mentality, xenophobia, disrespectful and callous attitudes towards, well, everyone “else” and, yes, lack of common sense or simply self preservation in an expanding world.

    Let us get the story correct. Under Bush there were only 400 guns that were allowed into Mexico.  Each of these guns were equipped with tracking devises to be able to locate where they went.  It was quickly discovered that the plan would not work as was planned so it was ended.
    Under Obama’s “Fast & Furious” there were over two thousand guns allowed into Mexico.  There was, evidently, no plan to track them since there were no tracking devises in any of the weapons. 
    This had already been proven to be a failed exercise, yet the Obama administration saw fit to try it again and, this time, with fatal results.   SO, QUIT BLAMING BUSH for Obama’s failures.

  • mwbiolchino

    Will OB still be blaming Bush at the end of 2016?  He will and many of those who voted for OB this time will just nod their heads in agreement.  You do not understand how the levels of government work with each other. In the case of Katrina the first level of government was the mayor of New Orleans who proved to be an idiot when he left 200 buses out in the water when they could have been used to haul food and supplies to those in need and used also to evacuate the people in danger, but no, the buses just sat there until they could not be used. New Orleans is a town below sea level protected by levees that are not up to the task of protecting people and property, add an area prone to hurricanes and a local government that did NOTHING. The city government used a stadium to house the people affected by the flooding but neglected to put up supplies such as food, blankets, cots, medicines, and etc. So after nothing was done by those elected officials of the city the governor of the state of Louisiana also did nothing. Then and only then did President Bush step in. Then I suppose all the attacks and sexual assaults that occurred  in the stadium are Bushes fault too. The reality is that to you no matter what Bush did was wrong. Subsequently whatever OB does to OK with you. Many of you claim that Republicans/conservatives are ALL racists but you refuse to see that many of you on the Left/Liberal side are racists also. You voted for OB because he is black and you claim that we on the right did not vote for OB because he was black, so who are the real racists? OB was elected with a lot of help from white people. You on the left refuse to accept your responsibilities to have fully vetted  OB and when we point out a concern about OB we on the right are accused of being racists. The media is biased on the behalf of OB and the Democratic party. The media has become the fourth branch of government that has no branch to check it and in hiding behind the first amendment basically can say whatever they want with impunity. I realize that what ever is said on this site will be meaningless to anyone in either party. So good luck to you all.   peace,   Mark

      THEN I come on here and see in at least 3 posts that thers are saying the same thing.

        @JimGrab @Rose Marie Noa – I find it interesting that he resigned right before sworn testimony is to begin regarding Benghazi. He probably refused to lie at the hearings and was given 24 hours to reconsider before being forced to resign. I may have believed the affair story if it had come out some other time, but not the day before Benghazi testimony begins. Some things in this administration are extremely transparent unintentionally.

    OBAMA, 2016 is NOW a MUST SEE movie for conservatives and liberals.  It may serve as primer of things to come!  The Left Behind series showed a very influencial, charismatic Anti-Christ figure( Disclaimer: I do not believe this “president” is the anti-christ), BUT like that character , Nic. Carpathia who would kill in cold blood those who did not follow him and then convince everyone in the room, it DIDN’T happen the way they thought OR simply that he was right in the offing!  Perhaps, a magician is a better analogy, although not as sinister as I believe our president may be, who says, “EVERYONE, look at my right hand, see what it is doing.

  • SharonJonesJeanguenat

    The ONLY reason there wasn’t a SCANDAL, is because main stream media wouldn’t report the truth! What about Fast & Furious, what about Benghazi, & 4 murdered Americans? What about his allowing al Qaida to be in charge of security in Libya? What about sending our troops ILLEGALLY into Libya? If Bush had done that, they’d have stormed the WH, & dragged him out into the street, & killed him. But, because Obama did it, it’s ok. Or what about all the voter fraud & intimidation that went on Tuesday? Or back in ’08? And, that’s just a start! If any of you are buying the NYT, stop now.  Hit ‘em where it hurts, in their pockets. And, stop watching Bill Maher, Chris Matthews, The View, etc. If they lose viewers, their networks get rid of them. Look at CNN! Even Anderson Cooper finally admitting what we all knew already, that he was gay, didn’t boost their ratings. And, this year, instead of making merchants rich, who totally are against  ‘Christmas’, don’t shop there, or don’t shop at all. Money is what most of these people understand, so it’s time to hit them where it’ll hurt them.

    In addition there are all the companies whose owners contributed to Obama’s campaign, got billions of dollars in federal “stimulus” money, paid big salaries to their owners, and then went bankrupt.

    Are you kidding me? No scandals in the Obama administration?
     
    1. Feeding hundreds of millions of dollars to failed green energy companies, whose sole merit was that their owners bundled campaign contributions for Obama isn’t a scandal?
     
    2. FAST & FURIOUS where Obama’s lackeys bought guns and gave them to Mexican Drug Lords, in an attempt to build a case to circumvent our 2nd Amendment isn’t a scandal? He had to invoke his presidential privilege to absolve Eric Holder from having to testify. Both Obama & Holder are guilty as heck, here. This isn’t a scnadal?
     
    3. BENGAZI isn’t a scandal? … Four Americans lost their lives. General Hamm was relieved of his command, when he tried to send troops in on a rescue mission. He resigned a couple of days later. David Petaeus was thrown under the bus by Obama. Peteaus responded with “NOBODY at CIA gave a stand down order.” Petraeus just resigned. Don’t buy the White House & MSM line that it was over an extramarital affair. Petraeus didn’t resign because he was screwing a chippie. He resigned because Obama screwed him and the 4 Americans who lost their lives. We now KNOW that Obama was in the situation room and was watching the Bengazi assault in real time. Obama & staff knew from day one that this was a terrorist attack  It wasn’t caused by some obscure video. The poor patsie that made the video is sill locked up. His life has been ruined, to give cover to Obama & Hillary. This, too is a scandal.
     
    NYT David Brooks is NO journalist.
    He’s a shameless partisan whose lips shall forever be locked onto Obama’s johnson.

    • GT340

      @TPM One of the Green companies that went bankrupt involved Senator Piglosi’s husband.   I wonder if all the millions given to his company was used for large salaries and huge bonuses.  Then after it was all used up they went bankrupt and screwed us taxpayers.   You have to wonder if democratic insiders planned a money laundering scheme and the whole affair covered up by ObaMao’s administration.

  • http://myconservativeperspective.wordpress.com RMEKRNL

    This is the email I sent the Publicity Editor of the NYT about this incident:
     
    How can the NYT’s David Brooks, in a post-election TV appearance, dare state that the Obama Administration has had no scandals?  Just because they haven’t been covered by you and others in the liberal media, like you all covered Watergate wall-to-wall and for months on end, doesn’t mean that scandals haven’t occurred — just that you haven’t done your job in investigating and reporting them.
     
    What about (a) Fast & Furious, over which the Terry family and the American public are still awaiting answers, (b) AG Holder being held in contempt of Congress, (c) Obama’s wasting of millions in taxpayer money on Solyndra, et al., during a recession when 25 million Americans are out of work, (d) Benghazi-gate, before, during and after, (e) Obama blatantly lying to the American people on national TV during the second debate by not only falsely claiming he called Benghazi a terrorist attack from the start but also faking indignation that anyone would suggest otherwise, when even Candy Crowley’s own CNN fact-checkers, immediately following the debate, caused her to reverse her comments to “help” Obama and shut Romney down, (f) allegations that the Obama campaign received illegal, foreign contributions for the 2012 election, just as was alleged during his 2008 campaign, (g) evidence of e-voting machines in some states registering votes for Obama when the vote cast had been for Romney, (h) Obama telling government contractors to ignore the WARN Act, a federal law, and that if they were sued over it, he would use our tax money to defend them for it, (i) Obama bypassing Congress (once again) and implementing his own version of the DREAM Act by simply saying his administration would not enforce our existing immigration laws, (j) the Pentagon not complying with the 2009 Military Assistance Voting Act and ensuring all of our men and women in uniform got timely absentee ballots to vote in this year’s election, (k) that Obama’s HHS Secretary Sebelius violated a federal law with no consequences whatsoever, or (l) that Hillary accepted “full responsibility” for the security lapses of Banghazi but there was no outcry for her to resign over it? What she did was the equivalent of a politician “apologizing” by saying they’re sorry YOU misunderstood what they said — in other words, no real apology at all and no consequences. This is only a partial list of what you and I both know would have been investigated as scandals in the administration of any other president except Obama, and probably especially if that other president had been a Republican, as Nixon was. The difference is that nobody died in Watergate but they did in Benghazi-gate, and probably preventably so.
     
    And you in the liberal media seem to wonder why a growing majority of the American public no longer trust the mainstream media and you’re all losing readership and viewership — ha!

    • GreenMtnBoy

      @RMEKRNL AMEN!  YOU OUTLINED THE LITANY of KNOWN criminal acts against the American people by this administration very well.  I am sick at how many voters CLEARLY do no personal research on candidates or issues before voting.  The vote many cast was nothing more than another nail in the coffin of our PREVIOUSLY fine republic!  It will be a rude awakening when we hear the growing collective UH – OH !  as people see that Barack’s America is NOT, (nor has it ever been) a nation of the people, by the people and for the people, BUT instead a Government, of the government, for the government and by the government!

If it was anybody but Obama and especially if it was a Republican president, the liberal lamestream media would be all over the lack of response, just like they were during Katrina.

    Are you kidding me? It was the dirtiest race I have ever seen in my 69 years. What do you know? I saw pictures of fraud and theft on the streets, in the polls and at the election offices. Florida and other states ran a Chicago election. I will never understand how the liberals could do this to our beloved America. Obama did to Romney what he did to the senator he ran against in Chicago. You are all so blind.
    I also worked AT ELECTION HEADQUARTERS AND GOT THE PHONE CALLS FROM DESPERATE CITIZENs WHO TRIED TO VOTE BECAUSE MYSTERIOUSLY THEY WERE NEVER REGISTERD EVEN AFTER THEY HAD BEEN VOTING FOR 9 YEARS IN PALM BEACH COUNTY.???
    I saw the Obama people at early voting places intimidating other voters. It was a disgrace!!!
    You need to start writing the truth. What a sad day for the American people to choose to read your trash which is printed as freedom of the press. The press has not been free for many years now. We all need to boycot your papers and all of the tv staitons which are so left it is disgusting. Our country has become a country of lies from the administration from tv and from the papers.

    You are absolutely correct. David Brooks is a partisan hack and a blithering idiot.

The world would have been a better place.

    • GreenMtnBoy

      @MartiSettle I agree with your perspective and remarks, but the behind the scenes taped remarks by Mitt Romney in May that the Democrats (and our at any cost president (lower case “p” intended) appear to be correct.  Not 47% but apparently if vote tallies can be believed 51% of the voters will believe ANYTHING said by the left!!!  No amount of fact checking matters to them, “we the deluded masses will follow you oh “leader” to our very deaths if necessary” because you are the smartest man to ever inhabit the White House and all rooms in all countries, so we will not listen to anything that does not support YOU, our leader Supreme.  This seems ridiculous when placed in writing, but we the (49%) have seen it demonstrated on Tuesday.  I DO BELIEVE there will be increasing “weeping and gnashing of teeth” as these folks join with the already suffering 49% to realize that some bought the same “Bill of Goods” TWICE !!!  Definition of insanity???  Somehow expecting a different outcome!   Keep your chin up!  (not the nose up, as Barack has already adopted that as his signature move!)

         The NY Times is like the Daily Worker. It doesn’t exist because of how many people read the rag. Their job is to tell all the other left wing news media what their talking points and propaganda lines of the day should be. And sure enough, within 24-hours they follow orders.

        • LarryDaleCrumbley

          @YellowJacket2  @Papabstr —I totally agree with you.  THERE stupid talking points are what is going to help destroy them. Look at the MORONS over at NBC—”NOTHING–BUT–CRAPPY” NEWS, hey are about to lay off 500 workers because of Obama-care–(TAX)–And there idiotic cable channel still does not get it, and I am referring to the cable channel MS-LSD otherwise known as MSNBC.

    Obama went to New Jersey after the storm for political purposes only.  He has not been there since and FEMA has failed again.  The union workers used, while others were turned away, has failed also.  The people of New Jersey, New York still have a tragic mess.  Have they learned anything?  I doubt it, they would still be stupid enough to vote for Obama.

    • EricHaulenbeek

      @MildredFischer You would almost think that most people would remember this sort of lackadaisical behavior when next we vote… but anyone who’s on the government nipple is going keep on voting for anything they don’t have to work for. Obama is known as “the welfare president”, and for good reason.  He counts on the low-life to keep his relevancy.  A lot of people woke up to this clown’s hollow promises this past election cycle.  He lost sixteen percent of the popular vote compared to his win four years ago.  By the time this next term comes nears an end I’d be surprised if he gets out of Washington without being tarred and feathered!

      @MildredFischer
      FEMA has failed and the Democrats want to give this sorry agency billions of more our dollars. They are a joke. They acronym stands:
      Forget  
      Every
      Man
      America
       
      This is Obama’s plan to cripple and collaspe the entire American economy. He hates America and probably gave the order to allow slow help to the folks. Why want anyone investigate Obama with his fake social security number being issued from CT, he never lived there. He is such a fraud!

  • MildredFischer

    I think Benghazi was more than a gun running operation.  I think somewhere there was a conspiracy and Ambassador Stevens was somehow a target.

  • Guest 3

    So, who is going to stop this POTUS?  I see NO ONE making a move to correct him.
    I lived both hurricanes Camille and Katrina, and the aftermath was a nightmare.  It literally
    takes years to overcome the aftermath of destruction of that magnitude and the Fed Govt is not
    equal to it.  Romney was correct in saying the private sector is better suited for this type disaster.

  • mrscas

    All members of Congress should be trying to get answers for their constituents regarding the truth about what happened in Benghazi.  Brooks is either lying or deranged to say that Obama is a man of integrity and that his administration is clean.  They are thugs and with that comes corruption.  Brooks needs to be sent away with Aunt Nancy, Grandpa Harry and crazy Uncle Joe.

  • merriel46

    Don’t forget about Crazy Chris Matthews

    • PEN333DO

      CHRIS MATHTHEWS MIGHT BE CRAZY.  OBAMA IS A SICK SOB WITH ALL CHARACTERISTICS OF A FULL BLOWN SOCIOPATH.  LYING, DENYING, DECEPTIVE  AND THE INABILITY TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY OF HIS ACTIONS.

      • merriel46

        @PEN333DO   I totally agree with you.  I still can’t believe that Obumba won re-election.  I have been flying my flag at half-staff ever since Wednesday morning.  To address your other comment.  Chris Matthews isn’t might be crazy, he is totally out of his mind.  He apparently wasn’t affected by Hurricane Sandy

        • GT340

          @merriel46   I think Mathews mammy spiked him into the turf about a dozen times when he was a child.   No other explanation is logical for the stupidity the comes out of his mouth.

    • raccoonden

      @merriel46 You got it.  Chief Wet-Um-Pants isn’t worth mentioning any more.

  • SHIRLEYLEDWARDS

    .HE WAS NOT ELECTED.  THE ELECTION WAS STOLEN, THE INTIMIDATIONS AT THE POLLS, THE DEAD PEOPLE AND PETS THAT VOTED AND THE PEOPLE THAT VOTED MORE THAN ONCE.  THAT SHOWS WHAT A CREEP HE IS AND HOW CROOKED HE IS.  HE OPENS HIS MOUTH AND A LIE COME OUT.  HE CANNOT TELL THE TRUTH AT ALL.

    • raccoonden

      @SHIRLEYLEDWARDS Here you go Shirley, I have been posting the election results from Ohio because the results are bewildering.  How could Romney win 72 counties and lose?  They are as follows:
      Ohio
      Barack Obama  50%     2,686,609 (16 counties)
      Mitt Romney  48%    2,586,467  (72 counties)
      Greene County results
      Precincts Reporting – 100%
       
      Mitt Romney
      48,683
      60%
       
      Barack Obama (i)

      38%
       
      Gary Johnson

      1%

      • DonT

        @raccoonden  @SHIRLEYLEDWARDS The answer to your question, raccoonden:  Easy!  The slackers, hangers-on, sluggards, takers, lazies, etc. all live in the cities with the large populations.  Those that have integrity, are self-sufficient and believe in personal responsibility live in the other 72 counties.

           Well, that’s part of it. Other cosiderations are that …
          1. Most minorities live in big urban areas, like Cleveland, Columbus & Cincy.
          The other factor is that …
          2. ACORN & Voter fraud seem to be rampant in major metropolitan areas, where ACORN & other like minded groups have a presence.

      • GT340

        @raccoonden  @SHIRLEYLEDWARDS   Search the net and you will see some obvious voter fraud.   Romney Got ZERO Votes In 59 Precincts in Philly, and 9 in Cincinnati.   Search using “Romney zero votes precincts” .

    More BO -BS.  Read this while thinking of Benghazi.
     
    President Obama’s Veterans Day Speech: “We Take Care of Our Own”
     
    President Obama delivered remarks on Veterans Day from Arlington National Cemetery shortly after the laying of the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns. The president said in his speech, “After a decade of war, our heroes are coming home, and over the next few years more than a million service members will transition back to civilian life. They’ll take off their uniforms and take on a new and lasting role. They will be veterans.”
     
    He went on to say, “We take care of our own. We take care of our veterans. We take care of your families, not just by saluting you on one day, once a year, but by fighting for you and your families every day of every year. That’s our obligation, a sacred obligation to all of you.”

      @RichardSeufert This evil creep has no shame at all, and his words ring hollow to every veteran who hears them.  “Mr. Obama, you have lost all credibility with the American people.  You sold out your honor long ago.  You’re nothing but an empty suit!”

      • RichardSeufert

        @EricHaulenbeek
         Knowing his life story is a major help.  Unfortunately, the Seeing were BLIND in this last exercise of pushing a touch screen roulette, oh, the election.

  • MildredFischer

    Eric Haulenbeek:  The House of Rep has the power to impeach, regardless of race or creed, but not the guts yet.  They should do it for their honor and as their duty.  Of course, with a demrat senate, and a liberal court, impeachment but not conviction would be as far as it goes

    • EricHaulenbeek

      @MildredFischer Dittos – just like the Clinton impeachment.  There’s very little backbone on the Republican side of the aisle, and none at all on the left.  Figures!

    Must be drinking the Kool Aid. “Fast and Furious” happened in first term and is an impeachable and treasonous offense. I keep wondering why our Congress fails to do their duty and start proceedings, not just for “F&F” but for providing arms to our enemies, al Qaeda in Libya that used the weapons provided to kill 4 Amerians, al Qaeda in Syria, and the Muslim Brotherhood (al Qaeda) in Egypt.

    • DennisVanMeter

      @MildredFischer Thay could be afraid that Obama supporters would rit.

      • MildredFischer

        @DennisVanMeter So, much more reason to perform their Congressional duty. We the people are here to protect our government or to protect ourselves against a tyrannical government, all enemies both domestic and foreign. The sooner Congress would act, the better off this country would be.

  • Chillis

    Even if there were a scandal,not one word would be mentioned in print or mentioned on the internet!!!! There’s some kind of fear manufactured in Washington, too much fear, that keeps the press quiet, and the spoken word silent!! Too many deaths have occurred. America, as we knew it is fading fast, and not a damn thing is being done about it.

    • LarryDaleCrumbley

      @Chillis  You comment Sir gets a four AAAA rating. Because you are totally right. As they have learned the CHICAGO-WAY to do political business now, and are doing it that way!!!

  • MildredFischer

    Don’t you think it is time “We the People” should make the government fear us rather than us fearing our government. If we have to live in fear, then there is no reason for living. God granted the freedom and we must not let our government take it away. I’m a modern day Patrick Henry, “Give me liberty or give me death.” On the day we have to take up arms against our tyrannical government I may die, but death would be better than the hell we are about to experience.
